the last of the original structures at the 4-way Clark Ave & Fultion Rd  intersecton has been down for a while now (Zannoni's). 60s/70s facadomized but original structure

A (?) Rally's w drive thru looks to be almost complete. unfortunatley the intersection namesake of the Clark-Fulton neighborhood now is as auto-centric and suburban looking as somewhere out in Macedonia. Big parking lots in front of a Rite Aid, Walgreens, a gas station and now a fast food drive thru.

this is what happens without "gentrification."

At least (just away from the intersection) Mazzone & sons italian bakery still prospers

"State-of-the art" replaces "antiquated" when new Max Hayes career high school opens Tuesday

By Patrick O'Donnell, The Plain Dealer

on August 16, 2015 at 6:30 AM, updated August 16, 2015 at 9:46 AM

 

CLEVELAND, Ohio - Kelly Wittman jokes that she should have a golf cart or Segway to move around the new Max Hayes career training high school.

 

The school, after all, is 550 feet from end to end - almost two football fields long and almost all on the ground floor.

 

As principal, Wittman will open the new school Tuesday that skips the three-story design of the old Max Hayes High School for one that avoids the challenges of hauling heavy equipment and supplies up stairs or an elevator.

While it may not be the most architecturally interesting, it definitely will do well to serve its intended purpose.  That said, they could have given it a "stylish industrial" appearance to further its role as a vocational training institution.

 

And I agree... the Cleveland School of the Arts is simply gorgeous.

Low-income housing tax credits pave way for two residential projects in Cleveland

June 22, 2015

By STAN BULLARD   

 

The Detroit Shoreway Community Development Organization and Cleveland Housing Network plan to undertake housing projects in Cleveland after receiving allocations of U.S. low-income housing tax credits administered by the Ohio Housing Finance Agency.

 

Detroit Shoreway and Cleveland Housing Network announced separately on Friday, June 19, that they had received allocations that will allow them to undertake, respectively, a $9 million conversion of the former Lion Knitting Mills Building, on West 25th Street at Meyer Avenue, and to construct an apartment for the elderly dubbed “Heritage Housing” on a site on East 97th Street north of Chester Avenue.

 

Lion Knitting will be converted into 36 loft-style units with affordable rents. The structure dates from 1919 and housed a garment firm that closed in 1990. Detroit Shoreway’s news release noted support from Dr. Akram Boutros, CEO of MetroHealth, and that of other officials as helpful in securing the award.

I'm really glad to see this project and things happening further down 25th, south of the freeway. I'd love to see more around 25th and Clark too. One of my favorite intersections being that it's one of the few "complete intersections" with buildings built up to the sidewalk on all corners.

Groundbreaking held for Lofts at Lion Mills on West 25th Street

June 30, 2016 UPDATED 6 HOURS AGO

By STAN BULLARD   

 

The $10 million conversion of an 1892-vintage former garment factory on West 25th Street to loft apartments is beginning in earnest after the Detroit Shoreway Community Development Corp. nonprofit group, civic and government officials held a groundbreaking for the project on Wednesday, June 29.

 

Jeff Ramsey, executive director of Detroit Shoreway, said in an interview that the project is an early step in fostering redevelopment of the commercial corridor in the Clark Fulton neighborhood near MetroHealth Hospital’s main campus. The project, called Lofts at Lion Mills, will consist of 36 one- and two-bedroom apartments.

 

The second and third floors of the building have views of downtown Cleveland’s skyline, Ramsey said, and rentals are designed as affordable housing because the project incorporates U.S. low-income housing tax credits sponsored by PNC Bank. Under the guidelines, a family of four with an income below $30,000 annually would qualify to rent in the building. Suites will be available in 2017.

 

In a news release on the project, Dr. Akram Boutros, MetroHealth CEO, said the hospital system is working on an employee housing plan to encourage families of 500 staffers to move to the neighborhood over the next 10 years.

Update: iconic water tower retakes rightful place atop Lofts at Lion Mills

KARIN CONNELLY RICE | TUESDAY, MAY 09, 2017

 

In its heyday, Lion Knitting Mills established a reputation for making wool military goods, and later sweaters for the consumer market.

 

The 1919 factory at 3256 W. 25th St. in the Clark-Fulton neighborhood sat vacant after Lion Knitting Mills closed its doors in 1990, until the Detroit Shoreway Community Development Organization (DSCDO) bought the 52,000-square-foot building and began converting it into affordable loft-style apartments in 2016.

 

The Lofts at Lion Mills, due to be completed by the beginning of September, will soon be 21 one-bedroom and 15 two-bedroom apartments that pay homage to the building’s history.

Not sure of the UO connection, but the building had an accidental fire in it last summer (a stray firework set off nearby was the cause and there was no working fire even though businesses were operating in a part of the building...).

 

It's been shopped (for sale at least 4-5 years for sale) but nothing happened the last I heard.

New Housing is Coming Our Way

Jul 19 2017

By: The MetroHealth System Category: Our Neighborhood

   

Two more affordable housing developments will be built in our neighborhood after today’s announcement that the Ohio Housing Finance Agency has awarded them tax credits.

 

• The International Village project, located near the Thomas Jefferson Newcomers Academy on West 46 Street in the Clark-Fulton neighborhood, plans to build 22 new single-family homes on vacant lots. You can read more about that project here: https://ohiohome.org/ppd/proposals/2017/Single-FamilyInfillDevelopment/17-0001-InternationalVillage.pdf

 

• And the Emerald Alliance XI project (see drawing above), located at the site of the old YMCA on West 25th Street in the Brooklyn Centre neighborhood, is planning 71 one-bedroom apartments for residents who’ve experienced homelessness. The apartment building will offer social services including help finding jobs.

Dear Cleveland Clinic....

 

MetroHealth System to form non-profit to revitalize W. 25th Street neighborhood

Updated on Jul 24, 2017 at 02:36 PM EDT

By Karen Farkas, cleveland.com

 

CLEVELAND, Ohio - The MetroHealth System plans to expand beyond health care by forming a non-profit corporation to revitalize its West 25th Street neighborhood.

 

For example, the non-profit expected to be approved by trustees on Wednesday, could buy property and work with a developer to create affordable housing.

 

"We are in the midst of a campus transformation - it is not just physical campus changes of building a new hospital and parking garage," said spokeswoman Tina Arundel. "We are committed to the entire revitalization of the neighborhood, including the West 25th corridor.

One of the most intriguing pieces of MetroHealth's ambitious campus transformation plan — a nearly $1 billion project that will physically remake the system as we know it — is the community tie-in. The bulk of Cleveland's major construction efforts have at least some component to source local talent for construction jobs, but MetroHealth's plans take that approach to the next level. And, of course, all of the local hospital systems have committed dollars in some regard to uplifting their surrounding neighborhoods, but none yet has taken it to quite the level that MetroHealth intends.

 

The health system's board in late July approved the creation of CCH Development Corp., a nonprofit devoted to revitalizing its West 25th Street neighborhood and developing nearby abandoned real estate in collaboration with various other partners. And while it's a unique model among Northeast Ohio hospitals, it's not completely foreign to the region's major institutions. Both Cleveland State University and Playhouse Square launched development entities — with success — focused on uplifting their neighborhoods.

MetroHealth taps Turner, Hammes for campus transformation

By LYDIA COUTRé

 

MetroHealth has selected Turner Construction Co. to lead construction management of the system's campus transformation, including a new 270-room hospital slated to replace its aging patient towers.

 

Turner's proposed team includes four local partners and three of the firms are minority-owned.

 

MetroHealth also announced that Hammes Co., a health care facilities development company based in Wisconsin, has been selected as the owner's rep for the project, meaning it will oversee all management aspects of construction and ensure plans are completed on schedule. Hammes will partner with Northeast Ohio's Signet of Akron and Moody Nolan. Moody Nolan managed the renovation of the MetroHealth Lyndhurst Health Center in 2016. Signet served as the owner's rep for the building of the MetroHealth Brecksville Health and Surgery Center.

 

MetroHealth's board of trustees approved the hiring of the companies at its board meeting Wednesday, Sept. 28.

Dialysis center opens near MetroHealth

By LYDIA COUTRé   

 

MetroHealth says that a new dialysis center opening Monday, Oct. 9, across the street from its main campus is a sign of the health system's commitment to revitalizing its neighborhood.

 

The Ohio Renal Care Group at Farnsworth, a 9,800-square-foot center opening at 3280 W. 25th St., is a partnership among MetroHealth, Cleveland Clinic and Fresenius Kidney Care.

 

The three partners also opened a new dialysis center on the East Side of Cleveland earlier this year.

 

As part of its nearly $1 billion campus transformation, MetroHealth is working to revitalize its West 25th Street neighborhood. For instance, the health system is forming a nonprofit organization dedicated to the work.

Wonderful to finally be rid of the eyesore that has been a drag on this neighborhood. Too bad it couldn't be repurposed. But now that site could be returned to productive use, hopefully with a nice, new employer.

 

@KerryMcCormack1

This morning started phase one of the demolition of the long blighted and condemned Swift building.  Not only is this the removal of a crumbling eyesore, but it is the start of the future of the W. 65th corridor.

Surprised this isn't already a designated landmark. I'm also surprised this is still a going concern, considering the decline of the surrounding neighborhood. I've always wondered what this looks like inside....

^ Sachsenheim is a hidden treasure. Check it out on Taco Tuesday’s or Wing Wednesdays. They also have $1 burgers on Thursdays. Specials on Fridays can be a surprise. So much character. It’s fun to roam around that place, inconspicuously of course ;-)

 

Ps the cook there is Grumpy, from Grumpys Cafe fame in Tremont.

Some very nice city views up there by Sachsenheim, Denison/Ridge. Could only imagine how impressive it would be from some mid-rise apartments. That's years/decades away, if ever, though.

Developer plans to revive old bakery as apartments

 

Efforts are underway to rejuvenate a one-time bakery building at 2707 Barber Ave. in Cleveland as 69 rental apartments.

 

The sprawling, four-block long structure dates to 1900 when it was constructed for the J. Spang Baking Co., which was acquired by the former Laub Baking Co. in 1958, according to "The Encyclopedia of Cleveland History." The local history said Spang's roots go back to 1888 when founder Julius Spang opened a "small bake shop" using skills as a baker he learned in Germany before coming to the U.S.

Cleveland antiquers are living their Googie dream

 

Margaret Daole and Dave Crider of Googie Style are hunters.

 

Clawing their way through garage sales, flea markets and estate sales, they find treasures with which to fill their galleries, carefully curated with vintage and mid-century furniture; art and unusual décor; as well as Crider's handmade furniture.

 

In November, Googie moved from a small Madison Avenue storefront in Lakewood to a 2,500-square-foot warehouse space on West 33rd Street in Cleveland's Clark-Fulton neighborhood on the city's West Side.

I grew up on the West side of Cleveland in the 60's & 70's and it's nice to see one of the older  neighborhoods that's NOT a Hot Spot for development get some much needed TLC!

I drove by the new DOLLAR GENERAL store under construction at Fulton and Walton, just north of Clark Avenue earlier today.  It look like it's mostly completed at least with the brick walls.  That former parking lot has been there since the 70's and has slowly been getting bigger over the years.......

A "recovering mobster" owns that property. Allegedly.
