Cleveland Clinic and University Hospitals' plans in Euclid could affect access to medical care

 

CLEVELAND, Ohio -- The story quietly unfolding at the corner of East 185th Street and Lakeshore Boulevard in Euclid could be one that does more than change the landscape in this eastern Cleveland suburb.

 

Redevelopment plans could greatly affect the way Cleveland-area residents access medical care.

 

University Hospitals and the Cleveland Clinic -- the region's two largest health care systems and fierce competitors -- sit next to each other along a corridor that is easily accessible off I-90. And in an unusual public stance, some local officials seem to be picking one health care facility over the other: They are asking UH to sell its out-of-date 1950s medical office building to the Clinic or work with its neighbor to redevelop the land. The property, they say, is blocking a possible expansion of the health system's 371-bed Euclid Hospital.

Euclid moving forward with more lakefront planning

 

Euclid City Council members voted unanimously to continue on with the Lakefront Development Plan at the regular council meeting Monday night.

 

With the completion of first phases of the plan, the pier and the trails at Sims Park, the next phases include planning, engineering and developing east of the pier along the lakeshore, with beaches and a marina breakwater.

Frank Pietravoia, assistant to the mayor for development along with a representative from SmithGroupJJR, presented the next steps.

 

“We have been through three major phases of contracting with SmithGroupJJR over a period of several years,” Pietravoia said. “Starting out with a brief but important marina market analysis and assessment ... then development and eventual city adoption of the Waterfront Improvement Plan ... (and) the largest phase ... moving concepts to preliminary engineering, master plan for Sims Park, and did some of the ground work.”

Euclid Council supports wind energy project

 

Euclid City Council passed a resolution at Monday night’s council meeting to show its support for a clean energy initiative from Lake Erie Energy Development Corporation.

 

LEEDCo, a nonprofit organization focused on creating an offshore wind energy industry in Ohio, has been gaining support from Northeast Ohio communities for a new wind energy project.

 

Icebreaker, an offshore wind energy project, is a pilot project the organization is working on that would be the first of its kind in the Great Lakes region and even in the entire country.

 

Eric Ritter, communications and strategy manager for LEEDCo, presented to council an overview of the project at the meeting. “We would like to have another alternative,” he said. “And we think wind is a really important industry that we should explore.”

Mentor gives grant to Euclid-based company coming to town

 

Mentor City Council has agreed to aid a Euclid-based company with consolidation and relocation plans.

Council this week unanimously approved a Mentor Incentive Grant worth a total of $29,400, to be paid to The Paquin Company during five years.

 

The project was eligible for an annual grant equal to 20 percent of the payroll taxes paid to the city — about $147,000 — for that term.

 

The company — a distributor of hydraulic, pneumatic and linear motion components and systems — seeks to buy a building at 9286 Mercantile Drive and consolidate its operations and that of affiliate Global Intex, under one roof. Global Intex already leases space in Mentor.

 

The project is estimated to cost $1.35 million, which includes the building purchase, renovation and moving costs, and equipment upgrades.

 

Last year, Paquin reported a payroll of $1.2 million with 21 employees. The payroll is projected to increase to $1.4 million this year.

^Congrats- Euclid is still a good place to live (regardless of the "perception" of those who live further east).  Where's your house?  There's an Aldi's on Babbit & Lakeshore (along with a Dave's behind it, and a Marcs a little bit east along Lakeshore), a Save-A-Lot on Neff & E. 185th with another at Euclid & E. 272nd.

I lived in Euclid for a year in the mid-90's, just out of college.  Unfortunately, I never really did much in the neighborhood - didn't have much money, and wasn't into outdoor activities at the time, so I kind of squandered the opportunity to get to know the place better.  I did always like it, though - the lake is pretty spectacular, and I dig places with vast tracts of single-family homes like that - I mean, just LOOK at this:

Euclid wants a new urbanism recovery

 

As any real estate agent can tell you, it’s all about location. So Euclid, an inner-ring suburb sandwiched between Cleveland and Lake Erie, should be attracting new residents. But, Euclid’s eponymous main street is an unremarkable stretch of five-lanes dotted with low-rise suburban offices and industrial parks that are pockmarked with vacancies or have a shopworn feel. Population has fallen from 60,000 in 1980 to 48,000 in 2012. Many have fled east to distant places like Mentor.

 

How Euclid tries to climb out of this Recession will be instructive to other suburbs that boomed in the post-World War II era and are now teetering from vacancy and loss of tax base.

All those transit options sound interesting especially the extension of the red line, but is there funding on tap for this?  Likely not to the extent that would fund those initiatives fully.  Regardless its great to see there is discussion and understanding of the need to make progress whether there is funding in place or not.

Most of the discussion on the transit options is at http://www.urbanohio.com/forum2/index.php/topic,26445.0.html. Long story short, RTA is doing an alternatives analysis study but it'll probably result in either a new park and ride bus route or a BRT-lite (like Clifton in Lakewood.) I, for one, am of the opinion that a BRT or BRT-lite extension would offer no significant improvement over the current busses. 

 

However, before we go to far in that direction, while I don't agree with the BRT, I do agree that Euclid Ave could use some form of redesign. It's too much road for the traffic it gets IMO; I think Lakeshore Blvd could use a similar makeover too.

Some planning and development updates

 

Bluestone Business Park:  Guardian Technologies is relocating from an eastern suburb to Euclid. The company manufactures air purification systems and will bring 25 – 30 jobs to Euclid as part of its new corporate headquarters and distribution facility.

 

Grand Blvd Wall:  Engineers from Mannik and Smith Group conducted field work in early August to analyze existing conditions of the retaining wall on Euclid Avenue at Grand Blvd.

 

Fair Housing Study:  Housing Research and Advocacy has completed an Analysis of Impediments to Fair Housing in the City of Euclid.  As a recipient of federal CDBG funding, the city is required to periodically undertake this analysis.  The final report is available on the city’s website. 

 

Stevenson’s Demolition:  Bids are being accepted for the demolition of the former Stevenson’s restaurant.  Demolition of this commercial property and adjacent residential building will be funded through the new CDBG Commercial Demolition Program.

New Chipotle Mexican Grill Restaurant Proposed for Downtown Euclid

 

Mayor Bill Cervenik is pleased to announce Chipotle Mexican Grill, Inc. and Carter Properties are proposing to bring a new Chipotle Mexican Grill restaurant to the City of Euclid in 2015.  The proposal calls for the construction of a new, 2,400 sq. ft. free-standing building on Lakeshore Blvd at Shore Center Shopping Center.  The project will be presented tonight, January 13th, 2015 to the City of Euclid Planning and Zoning Commission. 

 

According to Mayor Cervenik, the new restaurant will bring more than just great burritos to Euclid’s Downtown.  “The new Chipotle will have a modern design and outdoor patio that are sure to attract existing residents and visitors alike to our central business district.”

 

As part of the project, Carter Properties will make improvements to the existing Shore Center Shopping Center, including upgraded signage and landscaping at the 65,980 sq ft plaza.  Shore Center currently features a variety of national retail tenants including Aldi’s, Payless Shoes, Subway, Sherwin Williams, and Dunkin Donuts.

 

Review of the proposal by the City’s Architectural Review Board will take place on January 22nd, 2015.  Construction is expected to begin in Spring 2015. 

 

The proposal follows an exciting trend for Downtown Euclid, according to Planning and Development Director Jonathan Holody.  “Increasingly, people are coming to Downtown Euclid to enjoy dining and entertainment” said Holody.  A new restaurant named “Great Scott Tavern” is slated to open at E. 219th Street and Lakeshore Boulevard in the spring; the Irish American Club has added an outdoor patio in front of its building at 22770 Lakeshore Blvd; and Atlas Cinemas and Shore Cultural Center provide an opportunity to see great shows throughout the year.  “With everything happening, you will really be able to make a night out of your visit to Downtown Euclid” says Holody.

^Great add for the plaza- I just hope the addition of Chipotle doesn't cannibalize one of the other eats close by... Chili Peppers on E. 185th (better than Chipotle IMO- everything Chipotle has along with more.  The owner, Steve, is a great guy as well)

Agreed.

I think the people that frequent Chili Peppers will stay dedicated to them. Chipotle will most likely take business from the other fast food places and workers at city hall because of the convenience  :)

Incidentally, there was one voice of dissent at Tuesday night's P&Z meeting. The owner of Subway located in the same shopping center. His stated concerns included a stress on already hard to find parking (there is a net loss of 5 parking spaces and the variance was approved), lack of safety for employees if they are required to park behind the building, and concerns about not being able to be seen from the street due to the height of the building. An additional height variance was approved as well permitting the building to be 18' 8" high where 26' are required.... yes, shorter.  Since the current outdated pole sign will have to go away, two new monument signs - one at the Babbitt entrance and one at the Lake Shore entrance - will take its place, doubling the space given for tenants to place their sign.

Euclid to Net Big Gains in Dining Scene Thanks to Ambitious New Project

 

 

For a city the size of Euclid, with close to 50,000 residents, the community is woefully underserved by great independent restaurants. Other than a handful of small, popular spots like Beach Club Bistro and Paragon Wine Bar, the sprawling municipality just east of Cleveland is a culinary wasteland.

 

 

Going a long way toward righting that wrong will be Great Scott Tavern, a multi-million dollar project two years in the making. When it opens in April, the 7,500-square-foot bar and restaurant will accommodate 180 diners indoors, with room for another 150 outside.

 

 

If you live in the area, chances are good that you’ve driven by the attractive two-story brick building (21801 Lakeshore Blvd.) and watched as the building was systematically gutted and rebuilt. Originally a post office, the 70-year-old building had been chopped up over the years into multiple rental spaces. The owners have spent the last 24 months – and a few buckets of cash – unifying the space to ready it for this restaurant.

Heck I'm kind of torn on this. Like the lake-adjacent greenery a lot. But not a fan of those very long stretches of armored coastline. The stones they're using (oh man, please don't let them use broken up concrete) look kind of strange in the rendering.

 

It's hard to visualize what they'll look like in reality.

 

And what's to stop all sorts of weeds and trees from growing up through the gaps?

 

This efforts, while laudable, just don't seem to provide enough greenery or enough sand. This will continue to look like a very unnatural shoreline.

There isn't a stretch of lakefront public access this long anywhere else on the East Side, so I'm excited for it

 

Granted the lakefront pathway is a nice addition. Do you know if there will there be true lake access? if so, then more props to Euclid. Because in Lakewood it's actually illegal to get to the water in Lakewood Park. There is no public access to the Lake anywhere in Lakewood which is sort of ironic, I think.

Great Scott Tavern opens in Euclid, brings a lively vibe to former post office

 

Great Scott Tavern's opening in Euclid last week brings a welcome dimension to the city's dining scene -- and a fresh, lively vibe to a handsome if austere former U.S. Postal Service facility.

 

Visiting the new restaurant, at 21801 Lakeshore Blvd., I discovered a sprawling space filled with sunlight and activity. Floors in the entry way have the look of light, hand-hewn hickory, and decor is contemporary and neutral. Old-fashioned Edison bulbs provide subtle lighting while punctuating the space visually.

 

The 7,500 square feet that Great Scott occupies is divided between two stories. Public space is so far confined to the street level rooms, but the upstairs area will eventually accommodate patio guests who may have been rained out as well as permitting expansion for private dining and events.

 

 

GREAT SCOTT TAVERN: 21801 Lakeshore Blvd., Euclid; greatscotttavern.com, 216-417-3019. The restaurant is open for dinner from 4-10 p.m. Monday through Thursday, and from 4-11 p.m. Fri-Sat. Though currently closed on Sundays, brunch will be offered in the near future.

Euclid acquiring funding to add trail and beach along lakefront

 

A walkway and a beach where visitors can launch kayaks and small sailboats is closer to reality now that Euclid is acquiring funding for the second phase of its ambitious waterfront improvement plan.

 

The project will take up to 30 months to complete.

 

The city hired JJR, LLC, a design and engineering firm, in 2009 to assist with refining plans for improvement and enhancement of the waterfront. 

 

The $30 million plan would extend public access along the shoreline from Sims Park east to near the intersection of Lake Shore Boulevard and East 246th Street.

 

Two years ago the city dedicated a $1.1 million fishing pier, which has been very popular, said Mayor Bill Cervenik.

 

Since then officials have worked to acquire the $10 million needed for the second phase, a three-quarter-mile all-purpose trail and breakwaters that would re-establish beaches that have disappeared, said Cervenik and Frank Pietravoia, special assistant to the mayor for development.

 

"This creates the opportunity for the public to get down to the water," Pietravoia  said.

 

A measure to provide a $4 million loan to the city from the Casino Revenue Fund will be introduced Tuesday at Cuyahoga County Council.

 

The city received $1 million in state capital improvement funds. It will also seek $2 million to $3 million in federal block grant funds and funding from the Ohio Environmental Protective Agency and Ohio Department of Natural Resources.

Millions in upgrades planned for historic Euclid WWII bomber plant, former GM Fisher Auto Body

 

 

Last week, HGR Industrial Surplus invited the community to celebrate the christening of their sprawling 12-acre building as the Nickel Plate Station. The company also unveiled a display showcasing the fascinating history of the property and kicked off a $10 to $12 million campaign to improve the facility.

 

HGR, purveyors of used and surplus equipment, purchased the property last year in a collaborative effort with the city and the Cuyahoga Land Bank (CLB) after it had been orphaned by its owner.

 

"One day the landlord just got up and left," recalls Euclid Mayor Bill Cervenik.

 

HGR, a tenant since 1998, wanted to stay in the 20001 Euclid Avenue building. Per CLB director of acquisitions, dispositions and development, Cheryl Stephens, the property was in foreclosure and had more than $1 million in outstanding back taxes and some other liens.

 

"It would have taken more than a year for this company to get access to this property," says Stephens. "What we did on behalf of the city of Euclid was cut through the time, energy and money of having to pay back taxes. We wiped the slate clean. We cleaned up the title issues and sold the property to HGR."

 

That was in 2014. HGR, which employs 120, has since upgraded the fire system and driveway. While future plans are still unfurling, they will include renovations to the façade, lighting and parking lot. The company also intends to improve and lease two large spaces, 160,000 and 50,000 square feet respectively.

More big news for Euclid. We've been working on this one just short of a year. It almost went out of state, which very likely would have ended up being followed by other portions of the current campus following suit. But we made it happen.

 

I'll update as the project moves forward. No renderings or plans have been submitted yet, but likely will be within a month

 

 

Lincoln Electric announces new $30M technology center

 

Lincoln Electric will break ground next spring on a brand new state-of-the-art technology center.

 

In an exclusive interview with WKYC, company C.E.O. Christopher Mapes said the new center will serve as a $30 million investment in Northeast Ohio. "Our responsibility to the industry and our customers is to really be viewed as the welding experts. So our welding school is a 'train the trainer' model. We bring educators and trainers in and provide them information about welding technologies," Mapes explained.

 

The Euclid-based company will celebrate its 120th anniversary this December. With a global workforce of 10,000 employees, 3,000 of them work at Lincoln Electric's facilities in Euclid and Mentor. It's here, at home, that the company saw an opportunity to expand. "We recognize our responsibility in the need for qualified welders moving forward or the educational abilities for robotic and automated building. This facility should assist companies in meeting that need long term," Mapes added.

Cuyahoga County Council approves $4 million loan for Euclid waterfront development

 

Euclid's waterfront improvement plan received a $4 million boost Tuesday when Cuyahoga County Council approved a loan from its casino fund.

 

The loan will go toward a three-quarter-mile lakeshore walkway and beach where visitors can launch kayaks and small sailboats. The $10 million project is the first casino fund loan for a development project outside the downtown Cleveland district.

 

The county will provide the initial $825,000 for engineering expenses, and the remainder of the loan will be provided in 2016 and 2017. Up to $2 million of the loan may be forgiven if the city meets specific benchmarks.

City Moves to Demolish Former Lakeshore Chevy Buildings

by Jonathan Holody

 

For many years, the Lakeshore Chevrolet dealership in Euclid served the automotive needs of residents throughout Northeast Ohio.  Since the dealership closed in 2008, however, the group of decaying buildings along East 185th Street have sat empty and abandoned.  That will likely change as the City of Euclid takes steps to demolish the buildings and prepare the site for redevelopment.

 

With help from the Community Improvement Corporation of Euclid and the Cuyahoga County Department of Development, the City began to strategically acquire the abandoned and tax-delinquent properties through the foreclosure process in late 2013.  The multiple structures on the 1.33 acre site were later condemned by Building officials due to severe structural deterioration.

 

 

After soliciting bids, the City awarded a contract for the demolition of the buildings to Pro-Quality of Campbell, Ohio.  Funding for the project will come from the City’s $1 million grant award from the newly created Cuyahoga County Property Demolition Fund.  Work is expected to begin in the fall of this year.

 

Demolition of the buildings and parking area will not only remove a blight from the community, it will also create a shovel-ready development site. With its close proximity to Euclid Hospital, Hospice of Western Reserve, Villa Angela St. Joseph High School and University Hospitals, and along the up-and-coming East 185th Street business corridor, the site has tremendous potential to attract future development.

 

Market-based redevelopment options as well as potential interim greenspace uses for the Chevy site are being prepared as part of the East 185th Street Land-use and Transportation Plan.  The plan is a collaborative effort between the City of Euclid, City of Cleveland, Cuyahoga County Planning Commission and Northeast Shores Community Development Corporation.
