Brownfield site may soon yield new development

By STAN BULLARD

 

The grass, weeds and cattails on Cleveland-owned land at Madison Avenue and West 110th may give way to bulldozers and industrial buildings if revived plans for the site bear fruit.

 

Legislation is pending before Cleveland City Council to provide Weston Inc. a tax abatement on nonschool property taxes. Councilwoman Dona Brady said a measure is in preparation to authorize the sale of the 22-acre site to the Warrensville Heights-based real estate owner and developer.

 

...One piece of legislation, a to-be proposed measure next week, will authorize the Jackson administration to sell the industrial land to Weston in two phases, according to a Cleveland economic development department summary of the agreement. The first phase would be 9 to 10 acres for a project to be launched by year's end. A second sale would come within two years if Weston performs on the first phase.

 

A site plan for the project that Brady provided envisions a building parallel to Madison Avenue for the first phase with 162,500 square feet. The subsequent phase might consist of two buildings, each of 108,300 square feet, that would be perpendicular to the first one and parallel to West 110th and West 106th streets, respectively. The actual sizes of the buildings, however, would vary to accommodate demands of

prospective tenants.

This was the property whose owners, the McWilliams, said they needed to raze the apartment building at West Blvd and Detroit (seen at left, above) for restaurant parking. Apparently the McWilliam family requested it for someone else. Now that the apartment building is gone, they sold it to a company formed on June 8 to buy the restaurant property. The company, ZRK Property Management, lists to a 25-year-old Middleburg Heights man named Aurora Zaloshnja. A man twice his age, named Rafael Zaloshnja, registered the tradename of The Palazzo Ristorante to ZRK Property Management. Here is the property transaction...

I will chain myself to that building and they can demolish it along with my dead body. Plenty of empty space and less significant buildings in the immediate area that should be developed.

City Council action clears way for new life at old Midland Steel site on Cleveland's West Side

Updated 4:29 PM; Posted 4:25 PM

By Robert Higgs, cleveland.com bhiggsCleveland[/member].com

 

CLEVELAND, Ohio - City Council gave approval Wednesday to an economic development deal designed to breathe new life into 22 acres on the city's West Side that have sat idle since Midland Steel closed in 2003.

 

By way of two ordinances, council approved selling the city-owned property to Weston, Inc., an industrial property owner and developer based in Warrensville Heights, and granted tax abatement of city real estate taxes on the development. 

 

Weston intends to construct buildings for multiple industrial tenants on the site, starting with a $10-million, 162,500-square-foot building. The land fronts Madison Avenue, Berea Road and West 110th Street.

Interesting area for a residential conversion. It's not in a hot neighborhood. It borders an industrial area which will soon see Weston's 22-acre industrial park on the former Midland Steel site. Ironically, the building to be converted was the United Auto Workers union hall for the workers at the Midland plant and other nearby auto-related factories....

I'm happy to see movement with the building on Madison. Victor is pretty invested in the neighborhood and he's been wanting to do something with that place for a while. From what I've gauged, he has an eye towards helping existing communities/affordability so hopefully those are guiding trends in this conversion.

There also seem to be a handful of decent-looking rehabbed but still affordable rentals on those blocks immediately south of Madison and west of West Blvd, so seeing more units come on line right there isn't as shocking to me as it might seem at first. Also Madison is getting bike lanes (in certain segments) so it's an increasingly livable place.

Was driving by West Blvd station today and noticed the taller building at 9800 Detroit is up for sale.   Could be some TOD primer if the building is worthy of a conversion.

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....

Looks good. I’m not in this industry, but I’ve talked to several people who are and I’ve been surprised with how many of them complain about the lack of adequate industrial space in the city. I was very surprised about that, I was thinking we had too many but most of the industrial spaces I know about are old, vacant and offline. We don’t have enough apparently tailored to the industrial/light manufacturing needs of today.

Sadly the ones being erected on the site today won't last nearly as long as the old brick beauties in the neighborhood surrounding them--still standing and still functioning as industrial space.

Thanks KJP! I knew it was going to be industrial space but was having a hard time finding a site plan. I do wish the Phase I building would be built closer to Madison with parking in the back, but I guess beggars can't be choosers for this type of development. I'm just really happy to see new industrial construction in Cleveland since so many industrial companies have been moving out to the suburbs lately.

I love these old brick industrial buildings. They would make great housing, co-working spaces, artist studios, etc. But many are in prime industrial areas near highways and rail, and they don't offer indoor clearances and/or polluted from decades of use prior to environmental/safety regulations. Demolishing them, cleaning the land and legally protecting future owners/users from liability are costs that don't exist in suburban and exurban areas.

 

IIRC, the city of Cleveland spent more than $4 million clearing and cleaning the Midland Steel site. Few private sector interests would be willing to spend that at the many other brownfield sites around the city.

My business is located on 110th Street and I have heard that the first building is already fully leased out. They are already starting to work on the next building.

That would fit right in if it were built in a "neo-traditional" housing development on the outskirts of Charlotte or somewhere in Raleigh-Durham.

This design has been derided by everyone in the neighborhood I've spoken to. I doubt talking to the developer will have any impact, but residents are trying.

Not sure if this qualifies as a "development" but it certainly is an improvement...
