Cleveland: Downtown: John Hartness Brown Bldgs / Euclid Grand

Recommended Posts

Took some pics on lunch break of the rear of the bldg. Got a couple interior shots of the gutted inside and having never walked through that parking garage, it's interesting how they extended architectural design to the walls of the entrance

Great shots! I love how the rear still reflects the original early modern facade, not the second facade that's being restored now. Note, those architectural details in the last shot were actually built for a theater lobby (iirc). It wasn't turned into a garage entrance till later.

That makes a LOT more sense, I was thinking it may have had something to do with the Statler being there too, gotta have a fancy garage for fancy guests. Without looking on Cleveland Historical, do you know when the theater was taken out/was it (I'm assuming) replaced with the garage? And thanks for the compliment!

I'm so excited about this project. It might just be my favorite. This is a HUGE missing link along Euclid that will drastically change the atmosphere once it's finished.

I moved here about three years ago, between this and CAC/Athlon its crazy how great this is. Like, plastic fluttering in the wind/vacant goliaths were such a bad look for a downtown...so glad it'll be a thing of the past in the very near future!!

Would have been slightly more interesting if restoration would have gone back to ORIGINAL dates, but I realize trying to duplicate those would require still more time and moneys, so I'm thrilled the Beaux-Arts look of the '20s will one more grace this section of The Avenue.....

 

When is project completion currently anticipated?

Sure wish the Athletic Club would have done the same. Everyone who lives in PHS must walk in the street around the barricades to get to and from Heinen’s. 

In Chicago last fall I noted every construction project allowed pedestrians a sidewalk.  Also, I didn't see a single push-button "walk" signal.  I was in many districts.

Well, if you walk past someone taking pictures of a building under construction, chances are they hang out here.

Was there ever any historic facade before the glass ?

Appears to be in this photo from the historic photos thread:

I don't think the windows in tge most eastern bldg. will be that large.  Drawings show five windows across.

^Unless someone has numbers that contradict my opinion... the foot traffic on Euclid between 9th and 12th is NOT low. There is an almost constant flow of people - especially in the summer. 

What are you using to measure?

I just searched 'timeline' on the forum and didn't come up with anything [admittedly half-assed searching on my part], when do they expect this project to be complete?
