We have been getting good turnout at Saucisson. For Fleet Avenue, we have been following a strategy of focusing on businesses that mainly depend on a wholesale trade but that also have a retail presence. So, with Sauci, they are open to the public on Thursdays through Saturdays from 11a to 7p (including making sandwiches and soup for carry out or to eat in there, but operate throughout the week in order to supply the restaurants that use their products.

Haven't been through E. 55 & Broadway in many years, but even the Google Street View (from last October) indicates things have improved dramatically in recent times.  This district is loaded with potential -- very walkable with so many beautiful old mixed-use buildings -- some dating to the 1800s I'm sure, and the beauty is that so much is in tact.  This intersection is also very RTA-friendly with several bus lines and the Rapid (with all 3 lines) .9 miles to the north - a 19 minute walk or 3 min bus ride, according to Google.  Even the infamous Hubcap Heaven looks spiffy'd up as does the large, gracious Olympia theatre/apts building -- all good.  This should be one of Cleveland's next great walking districts.

^^Great to hear. I was a little dubious a place like that would work on Fleet if it was relying on walk-in customers for that kind of product, but the model you're describing sounds great.

It's a good model for businesses in neighborhoods who don't get as much foot traffic from potential walk-in customers (compared to Detroit-shoreway, tremont, ohio city, Coventry).

 

Cake Royale does the same in Old Brooklyn. Gentile's did (before they moved to Parma 4-5 years ago). Slices (bakery) and Star Gelato in Old Brooklyn both operate there as well but Star closed its retail presence last year but its production operations are still there; Slices hasn't had walk-in customer service in 10+ years (if at all).

Five properties (looks like all have buildings on them) on Broadway/Hamlet at the East 55th intersection plus two more in the 7600 block of Broadway were sold May 26 by Slavic Village Development Corp. to East West LLC for a mere $170,000. It will be interesting to see what they do with these properties/buildings.

 

East West LLC, incorporated last year, is owned by two up-and-coming Cleveland-area entrepreneurs Ryan Florio and friend Zach Colodner. Florio founded Inca Tea LLC, a fast-growing company. Read more about Florio and Inca Tea at http://www.crainscleveland.com/article/20150517/NEWS/150519847/a-new-kind-of-brew-how-inca-tea-went-from-idea-to-product

 

EDIT: Florio, along with Justin White, bought two more properties for $80,000 in the same area of Broadway/East 55th on May 26 under the company name of Hruby Broadway LLC, a company formed only a few weeks before.

the article says, "At one of only two intersections that maintain pre-World War I buildings on all of its corners, a local entrepreneur is redeveloping a neighborhood once ravished by the foreclosure crisis and continually forgotten by outside investors and developers jumping on the bandwagon of urban, rustbelt renewal."

 

is that one of only 2 intersections in Slavic Village or in the city? And, if the latter, that's really horrible, but, which intersection is it?

"Ravished" ...

 

The shot looking NW on Broadway is impressive for the total lack of people. Was it 6AM or is Slavic Village really that empty?

^I'm sure it's supposed to mean the city, but it's not really true. One of those weird factoids that someone made up.

 

It's not too far off.  Clark and 25th is the only example I can think of, and I'm not sure everything there is pre-WWI.  That's an odd standard to use.  A lot of similar stuff went up in the 1920s.

The threshold they set is actually pretty rare for Cleveland -- pre-World War I buildings on ALL corners. Off the top of my head, i can't think of any intersection in Cleveland that meets that threshold.

 

But to the point of the article, having an anchor employer/attraction for that intersection will be a wonderful thing. I hope it will lead to more wonderful things.

Gordon Square Arcade was built in 1921. So it does not meet the rather stringent standard posed in that article.

I immediately thought of W. 65th and Detroit, but I guess that doesn't count. W. 25th and Clark also came to mind, but I don't think the building with the mural predates WWI. W. 99th and Lorain is probably in the same boat because I'm not sure the Cleveland Uniform building predates WWI either ... plus not sure if that would count as it's not a major intersection.

 

My guess if there is a second would be Literary and Professor. Again, not sure if that classifies as a main intersection, but all four buildings look like they could be pre 1920.

 

Regardless, that intersection is a gem and I (and I know a lot of others) believe that Slavic Village has the potential to be the next upcoming neighborhood. Even thought the subprime mortgage crisis took its tool on the neighborhood, it's really not any worse off than what Ohio City or Tremont were in the 80s-90s, IMO.

Also, frankly, the demographics never flipped to the severity of most east side neighborhoods; that alone gives it a significant leg up.

I think it's a bad look to get a good deal from a CDC  and then try to flip the properties. Saw a nicer property on the market a month or so back that was a part of that transfer as well. CDCs in Cleveland are sketchy as hell. http://www.loopnet.com/Listing/5605-Broadway-Ave-Newburgh-Heights-OH/7729711/

Somebody's playing games.  That's nowhere near the city limits of Newburgh Heights.

I think that in their database, the Zip Code 44127 is given the city name of "Newburg Heights", while 44105 is given the city name of Cleveland.  There's lots of Zip Codes on the East and SE sides that bear no relation to municipal boundaries.

according to Wikipedia, it is both.

 

At one time I had access to GIS software that could have plotted it down to the postal routes. Unfortunately, now I have to rely on Wikipedia

Not to disgress, but zip codes are not polygons; they are the linear routes used by the postal services. (see http://ceadserv1.nku.edu/longa/modules/av/lab/zips/zip_codes.html ) That said, you can make polygons out there using GIS but sometimes the polygons will have holes or not be contiguous. However, the

here's the most recent polygons that I've been using: http://www.zipmap.net/Ohio/Cuyahoga_County/Cleveland.htm that I've found to work ok.

 

That's a little fishy that this property is already for sale, less than a year after it was purchased... The other ones that were transferred in the same sale:

There once was a street called Fleet

Whose homes bulldozers did eat

Due to foreclosures and sprawl

This neighborhood would fall

Without money and care in replete

They're gonna demolish everything?  Good luck with redevelopment

 

No kidding. Getting money for redevelopment is impossible when you are surrounded by vacant land. The only path then is... more demolition. Which as we're seeing was the goal all along.

Wow...I was ok with the other demos on the street since they were mostly single family crappy homes. But this is quite a large stock of commercial structures. WTF are they doing over there? They just made a beautiful new streetscape and they have decided to just erase the need for a walkable street
