The power washing seems to be working.  It’s definitely getting cleaner.  Also more work on the aluminum framing

I was going through old pictures on my PC and found this, called the Euclid-Mann Tower....

Poor Eli. He had some big visions, just couldn’t close anything. That was supposed to be a LeMeriden in the lower buildings.

A skinny tower like that would be great in the Union Club parking hole 😉 Lets make that happen instead. Anyone know more about what the new facade is going to look like?  I can only find a few renderings but it's pretty plain.  Secondly- anyone know what was the deal with the AC Hotel (Marriott)?  It was in some of the renderings and then dropped.

Would they really put another AC Hotel across from the one that's already there? As mentioned above I thought it was going to be a LeMeridien.

My office is across the street from the Union Club parking hole. I cannot wait for the day when they announce a skinny skyscraper for that lot. I do recall a long time ago that there was an article mentioning that they'd be open to developing the lot at some point in the future? Am I remembering that correctly? Sorry if this is off topic. Mods, you can move it to PHS discussion if needed.

Looking good! That last building though may need a mild acid wash to get the years and years of grime off.

A little confusingly, AC Hotels by Marriott is a different brand than Marriott’s Autograph Collection (which markets the Metropolitan at the 9, which I assume you’re referring to), and I see no reason why they wouldn’t hypothetically locate across the street from each other. 
 

That being said...

I think the LeMeridien was just a concept. I believe it'll be some form of a Marriott. 

 

A hotel component to this project hasn’t been in the plans for at least as long as this current developer has had the reigns. As far as I recall, this, the Drury, Kimpton, Metropolitan, Westin, Hilton, etc, were all initially on the drawing board at about the same time and the conventional wisdom seemed to indicate that the market wouldn’t be able to absorb all of the additional hotel rooms. By virtue of the delays, a JHB Le Meridien/AC was the odd man out.

The LeMeridian was with the prior out- of- state ( California ) ownership who was tied up in the courts 

with his partners. The State took over and appointed a receivership which subsequently sold it to Alto Partners.

I remember the LeMeridian being discussed and even one of the the local channels ( Ch 8 ) doing a big story on it and

mentioning it a a " go ". prior to the Indians in the playoffs.    I think that was the year they were in the 1 game wild card playoff against Tampa

Bay  or maybe even mentioned as late as 2016 against the Cubs. But I remember a big story about the LeMeridian when the tribe was in the playoffs.

Wow...I forgot the horrible state those buildings were in. They've really made a lot of progress with the exteriors.

Incredible...any chance you'll be able to get a picture from the same vantage point once completed for a jaw-dropping "before and after?"

Love that they’re not trying to mimic the facade to its left. It’s like we’re gaining a brand new infill building on Euclid. Looking forward to see what finish’s they use. So far  👌🏻

The upper floor interiors of these buildings are all going to be connected, like one big building - right?

I don't think there is another city in the country, even those 20 times the size, that has so monumentally restored, renovated or converted excess or deteriorated space into new CBD homes.  It's amazing!

 

The citizens, developers and community leadership should be proud of this tremendous accomplishment!

Correct it's all interconnected.
