  1. While I want to agree with you, I can't. Tower City retail was being patronized in its early years. A friend of mine who was at RTA in the 1980 and 90s said that the Shaker RTA lines had pretty good midday ridership from people going to Tower City to shop. That stopped when Beachwood Place was expanded with 40 stores including Nordstrom's in 1997, when Legacy Village opened in 2003, the same year Stark renovated and expanded Eton Collection into his "Rodeo Drive of Cleveland." All of this followed ODOT's expansion of I-271 with its express lanes in the mid-1990s which exacerbated the region's already destructive sprawl. Today, people in the Heights travel east to work and shop along the I-271 corridor, not west to downtown Cleveland.
  2. SHW shares Landmark with other tenants who occupy about 100,000 to 150,000 sf. The tenants are ID'd in my "Paint the Sky" blog: http://neo-trans.blogspot.com/2018/10/is-sherwin-williams-ready-to-paint-sky.html along with other leasing details. SHW can't or won't move them out of there, because SHW has general offices in four other buildings totaling about 145,000 sf. SHW could potentially expand into another 90,000 sf on Hinckley Industrial Parkway if necessary. Landmark is a beautiful building. But the old lady is pushing 90. It is inefficient in terms of its energy usage and in terms of floor space usage, technology and collaborative settings. I understand that SHW is a firm that holds to its traditions dearly. But a Fortune 500 company that's growing like SHW is, needs an HQ that looks forward with aspirations as much as it looks back at its achievements.
  3. There's many types of socialism, so could you clarify which one you mean, TKLG? Meanwhile, competition is decreasing under America's version of oligarchical capitalism through consolidation into a few mega-conglomerates. A social democracy encourages competition by prohibiting such consolidations that transfer economic and political power from the people to a smattering of wealthy families. Oligarchical capitalism has brought us to this, where we have fewer choices and rising prices....
  4. Unfortunately, It's been on the market for a long time (year or more). It was bought for $475,000 in 2006. It was valued for taxes at that amount from 2006-11, but has since been devalued several times to $245,500. They're asking $575,000 for it. They're dreaming.... https://www.loopnet.com/Listing/9800-Detroit-Ave-Cleveland-OH/14203286/
  5. "What about those corrupt democrats!!"
  6. I'm afraid you're right. BTW, so easy, a caveman could diagnose him....
  7. Yep. Because the GOP wasn't willing to confront him with a comparatively gentle 25th Amendment removal now, I expect there will be an armed confrontation between the military and all the AR15-armed conspiracy loonies to keep him from being removed from the White House after he loses the 2020 election, or in the off-chance he wins it, in 2024 when he faces term limits. Trump wants to die in the White House. He may get his wish.

  9. They stopped planning for it in 2016. Now, it appears that any site within 1 mile of SHW's Canal Road founding will be on the table.
  10. Boosting information technology in NE Ohio is critical. It's the weakest jobs growth sector locally, if you believe BLS....
  11. Imagine if our state leaders actually supported clean energy, Ohio's standing might be even more impressive..... Report: Ohio Among Top States for Clean Energy Jobs https://www.clevescene.com/scene-and-heard/archives/2019/03/15/report-ohio-among-top-states-for-clean-energy-jobs

    I would argue it continued until the 1970s, pretty much the New Deal era when this country was most like a social democracy....and had reached the pinnacle of its wealth.
  13. And how many killings by people of different backgrounds and ethnicities are/aren't categorized as terrorism ot as random violence?
