Cleveland: East Side Neighborhood Development

Recommended Posts

Ya some of the census track selections in CLE seem a little strange. 

Here is a map of proposed (red) and selected (green) tracts .

^ All around generally good news in there. I was very happy to see the vacancy rates in Lee-Harvard/Lee-Seville while there was hardly any demolition in those neighborhoods. All of the other neighborhoods had declining vacancy rates, but also massive demolitions to get rid of the vacant homes. I think those stats point to those neighborhoods certainly having stabilized, and probably even growing  again.  That would be great for the city, but also great from a regional perspective to have those neighborhoods rebounding. That would help put a stop to the spread of blight and decline to the southeast suburbs, especially with Maple, Garfield, and Warrensville starting to turn back around.

"CLEVELAND — Cleveland Mayor Frank Jackson and several city officials are held a news conference Thursday outside a building slated for demolition to discuss the progress on the city’s "Safe Routes to School" program. Jackson said the program has made progress on demolishing many abandoned residential homes, and resources are now free to begin taking down larger commercial structures.

 

The Victoreen Building at 10101 Woodland Avenue is one of the abandoned properties set to be torn down as part of the program that aims to make walks home safer for Cleveland schoolchildren. Demolition on the blighted property began just after the news conference.

 

During the 11 a.m. news conference, Jackson said that so far, about $27 million has been invested in the Safe Routes program, with a focus on abandoned residential properties along routes home for students from school. Now that hundreds of residential properties have been demolished, the city is taking funds appropriated for Safe Routes and investing in the razing of larger commercial buildings that the city normally wouldn't invest in, Jackson said."

 

https://www.news5cleveland.com/news/local-news/cleveland-metro/mayor-city-officials-hold-safe-routes-news-conference-outside-building-slated-for-demolition

 

"It will cost about $800,000 to raze the Victoreen Building, according to Ayonna Blue Donald, director of building and housing. That includes $200,000 to rid the site of asbestos.

 

Once the building is removed, the property should be attractive for development. It is just east of East 93rd Street and connections to the Opportunity Corridor, which already links to University Circle."

Until east-side development stakeholders realize that "old" doesn't equal "blight" you're probably right.

That makes a pretty big vacant parcel between Woodhill and the tracks, just down the hill from the Woodhill Estates, which also is being evaluated for renovations. 

 

I hate to see demolition of our sturdy old industrial architecture, but if there is hazardous materials on site it can be the most cost-effective way to remediate the problem.

 

Redevelopment of this site to bring jobs to that area would be good for everyone.

Hopefully some quality,  modern industrial spaces can be constructed as our industrial vacancy is very low. We need to be able to retain these businesses in the city that are moving to shiny new industrial parks out in the burbs (example Glenwillow’s new diamond business park). The east side / opportunity corridor area would really be a great place to do this. I’m not on all the up and up about this stuff, but I don’t think a lot of these older places fit the requirements of newer industrial needs - ceiling heights and all that.

Speaking of Opportunity Corridor.... Normally I would put this in the Opportunity Corridor thread. But since so few people venture into the transportation sections, I thought I'd post the photos in my blog and share it here. After all, the secondary purpose of the Opportunity Corridor is about changing land use...

Seeking opportunity in the Opportunity Corridor

 

This week I took a tour of the completed portion of the Opportunity Corridor, a project whose side mission is to change land use and turn dirt in a part of the city where the dirt hasn't been turned in a very long time.

First, the county land bank is building a single-family home in Collinwood, and now this. What's next, The Grace L. Ferguson Airline And Storm Door Co., is buying Burke Lakefront Airport??? Who's running this place, Bob Newhart??

 

9:30 Calendar No. 19-139: 12423 Locke Ave. Ward 8 Michael Polensek 21 Notices Dot Landscaping and Snow Plowing, owner, proposes to establish use as a state-licensed Residential Facility for 8 persons in a B1 Two-Family Residential District. The owner appeals for relief from the strict application of the following sections of the Cleveland Codified Ordinances: 1. Section 325.571 which states that a "Residential Facility" means a publicly or privately operated home or facility, licensed pursuant to state law, that provides accommodations, supervision, and personal care services to any of the following: (a) one (1) or two (2) unrelated persons with mental illness; (b) one (1) or two (2) unrelated adults who are receiving residential state supplement payments as defined in the Ohio Revised Code; or three (3) to sixteen (16) unrelated adults. 2. Section 337.03 which states that a Residential Facility for 8 persons is not permitted in Two Family residential district, first permitted in Multi-Family District. 3. Section 337.02(h) which states that a Residential Facility in a One, Two, or Multi-Family District must be located not less than one thousand (1,000) feet from another residential facility. Another residential Facility is located within 1,000 feet of proposed use (Alpha-Omega Home at 433 East 123rd Street). (Filed June 12, 2019)

BoxSpot business incubator in Kinsman ready for Saturday debut with open-air market

 

At the corner of East 81st Street and Kinsman Road "BoxSpot could help small businesses grow by providing retail spaces that cost $275 to $450 a month in rent and utilities, or about 10 percent of what more typical storefronts in Cleveland could cost  ... The seven businesses opening at BoxSpot were selected from 97 applicants, showing the need for affordable retail space, Tramble said."

House of Wills: Long abandoned Cleveland funeral home with fascinating past gets new life (photos)

The Plain Dealer

 

CLEVELAND, Ohio - If any place should have its share of ghosts, it would be Cleveland’s House of Wills. But to call the crumbling funeral home with the mysterious name on East 55th Street haunted is to trivialize its story.

 

Though many people’s thoughts turn to the looming 50,000-square-foot edifice around Halloween as they imagine the spirits that loom behind its ivy-covered walls, the House of Wills deserves attention all year.

I remember that at least until 2002, the Wills family  had the clout to get a Maple cop sent to prison for awhile after a family member resisted arrest for shoplifting and got tackled, later dying from a head injury.   Didn't know they closed so soon after.

When we used to play at the Marek Funeral Home (they were close family friends) it always seemed kind of creepy.    Maybe it's because we expect that.   Maybe it was that Dr. Sweeney used to "help out" in that building.

The "House of Wills" funeral home is rumored to be a stop on the underground railroad.  They have hosted a number of events for Black people in NE Ohio, when Blacks couldn't gather anywhere else.  The family was very very influential in Black Cleveland.
