^Had a NIMBY refer to this project as a monstrosity to me this morning. 

 

I honestly cannot pick a cooler, more practical, environmentally conscious, and aesthetically pleasing project for that location

Lol the United Bank Building across the street is a "monstrosity" as well that detracts from the West Side Market clock tower, tear it down!! (Side Note: Was talking to someone who recently visited Cleveland and called the WSM a "historic train station turned food market." They were shocked when I informed them it was never train station and was designed that way from the get go.) 

 

In all seriousness, I'm glad the developer is matching the height of the United Bank Building. The design combined with the high profile location makes this one of the most exciting upcoming projects in Cleveland.

Welp, another wishful project is off the boards. So, this property....

 

image.thumb.png.39a55e560163959cdebbb1aeccfd5461.png

 

2210 Superior Viaduct-Kertesz -- Daryl Kertesz's Downtown Ventures LLC paid $350,000 in June 2016 for a small industrial building at 2210 Superior Viaduct a short distance from the county engineer's site. Activity Capital, an investor group led by Kertesz, has proposed to replace the small industrial structure with a 64-unit apartment building perhaps 11 stories tall. He chose that height because it would come up to the 115-foot restriction for the current zoning height district. But Kertesz said he would like to get a variance and build up to 20 stories if the market allows for it.

Kertesz's conceptual designs for the project won approval from Cleveland Planning Commission's Design Review Committee. But that was nearly three years ago in February of 2016. Kertesz said he was attracted to the Detroit-West 25th intersection due to residential momentum in the area. That includes Stonebridge and the newly completed The Quarter, as well as traffic calming improvements to the intersection to enhance pedestrian safety.

"It's still an active project," Daryl Kertesz said in a phone interview. "It just has to be the right project. There's a lot going on in that area and I'm not sure if more of the same (Class A multi-family) over there is the right answer given the market saturation. We will only get one bite at the apple and when we have the right project, we will pull the trigger."

Perhaps it will be good news in the long-term if a new developer can come in that has more resources/experience with large projects.

Word is that Snavely will be building more units on the south side of detroit between 26th and 28th.  

 

If the vibrator company project happens, that might mean 4 sizable residential development projects on adjacent blocks under construction at the same time. 

 

This is the development @RMB referenced. See "Phase 3" below....

 

'Place-Making,’ Mixed-Use Development Revitalizes Cleveland Community

Published by Teresa Garcia on Friday, April 5, 2019

 

Phase 3

 

Next to the Forest City Square Apartments will be Phase 3 of the development, which will pair the adaptive reuse of an existing building with an adjacent new-construction, five-story apartment building. The 88 apartments will be available to residents earning up to 80 percent of the AMI. 

 

Phase 3 will be financed with OZ investments, debt, equity and some city funds.

 

Construction will start this summer and is scheduled for completion within 12 months.

^Mini rant because it is Friday night and I  have absolutely nothing else going on in my life.

 

Obviously, given its audience, that article has an agenda and must reflect a certain tone.  However, in painting the requisite picture (that is tax credits are good and revitalize neighborhoods) it unfortunately fudges some facts.  Relatively minor mistakes, but still frustrating to me for the reason that there could be other inaccurate information in the article upon which I rely as being true because I have no knowledge one way or another.

 

Again, no big deal but it mentions the new small organic grocer going into the Quarter building and hypes this development in a "former food desert" (by the  way, as a side note that term drives me nuts although not nearly as much as when somebody on HGTV creams their pants over an "open concept").  I definitely have to dispute this portrayal of the neighborhood since a pretty large reasonably priced Dave's and the West Side Market are about 4 blocks away.

 

The article also states Snavely is building  a 23 acre park across the street (I am assuming the author is referring to the Irishtown Bend project).  While Snavely may be promoting the park and may even be making contributions toward it, it is a major stretch to suggest they and they alone are building it.  If true they certainly are the corporate citizens of the century (at least in my mind because Irishtown Bend is going to transformative).

 

OK rant is over.  I know there more important things to obsess over (e.g.  Jacobs Public Square surface lot🙁)

Which is ironic because the detail about the third phase is a pretty good scoop, but the rest of the article is pretty sloppy IMHO.

I live nearby and when I found out a "grocery" was going into the property I was very excited. I imagined something like a Constantino's. Man was I disappointed, that place is a joke

Novogradac puts out a lot of good material on historic/lihtc/new market/solar energy/opportunity zone/etc tax credits, they host conferences as well. It's an amazing marketing machine obviously but they are one of the better sources for info on that stuff.

Saw a bunch of drilling equipment parked in the lot on the southwest corner of W 45th and Detroit.  Wasn't operating so could have been staging for someplace else, but haven't seen anything parked there before.

I hope he's successful, but I file this under self checkouts and bagging my own groceries--when I go out to eat, I don't want to cook it for myself. 🙂

It could be part of ongoing environmental testing to determine if the underground storage tanks are leaking. I think the reference to the drilling on the SE corner of West 28th and Detroit is directly related to an upcoming development.

Is the south east corner of west 28th and Detroit where Phase 3 of the Snavely development is going (5 story building with 88 affordable apartments) or is that going somewhere closer to West 25th?  If it is not Snavely I am not sure what this possible development is.  Has it been announced or as we like to do on the forum "suggested"?

I took these pictures two days ago. I was saving them for an article about this project, but I'm going to widen my approach to this article after mapping this proposal in the context of other nearby developments. It's a very busy map....

This is a really great project. I'm glad that they're incorporating affordable housing options in a central, and transit-oriented area close to jobs and other resources. I hope that more developers pursue projects like this. Combining OZ, HTC, LIHTC, etc. can create projects that are equitable but still profitable for developers.

^ from block club notes:

 

Sam Messina, Rustbelt Development, owner. Chris Forchion and Nick Muhvic, LDA Architects. First presentation. Historic Renovation of the vacant Rhodes Mansion. Converting the previous county archive building into 33 apartment units. The exterior of the building will remain similar to its existing appearance to meet all historic requirements. The 1874 building restoration will include repairs to the building brackets, restoration of the original windows on the mansion with replacement windows used on the annex (added to the mansion in 1914). Repairs to the annex also include a new roof and the addition of exterior lighting. The mansion will be repainted in a historic red with white trim color scheme; the existing railings will be retained. The interior renovation of the mansion will retain the original openings and fireplaces in the building, repair the plaster ceilings and refinish the original floors. There will be 33 market rate apartments (26 will be one bedroom and 7 units will be two bedrooms) with a leasing office in a front unit of the mansion. The attic space will be an apartment and a roof top patio is to be added - but will not be visible from the street. The curb cut on Franklin Blvd will be widened, the existing parking lot on Franklin will be retained and a rear parking lot will be added for a total of 34 parking spaces on site. Two mature trees will be removed to add the rear parking lot. The existing green space with two mature trees on the site located between the two parking lots will be retained. Planting beds will be added to the front of the mansion using a Victorian design and plant species. Work should begin by the end of this summer. The BC attendees were assure that all building materials will be kept on the building property. LDA was not able to confirm that the green space would not be built out in the future. No zoning variances are needed for this proposal; a vote of Block Club support will be taken at the April meeting for Landmarks.

Lorain Ave is on fire...

 

Pittsburgh-Based Arsenal Cider to Open Local Cidery in Ohio City

 

Work has already begun on the Cleveland location, which is located on the ground floor of the Go Media building (4507 Lorain Ave.) across the street from Forest City Shuffleboard. Arsenal will be producing cider onsite from local fruit, supplementing the offerings with product from the mothership as well as local beers. The 15-barrel system and fermenters will be visible in the 30-seat taproom, which will feature a rustic, woodsy vibe like the original.

Look for Arsenal Cider House to open this summer.

“We’re excited,” Bill says “The more time I spend in Cleveland, the more I love it.”

Hopefully once the FS Shuffleboard Apartments start going that'll activate more/continual investment to both fill in towards Fulton and further west. By the way what's up with all the car dealerships? I guess I've never noticed before, but just streetviewed and there's like 5 in that stretch, yesh.

Developer’s plans for $29-million Ohio City apartment project one step from obtaining key tax incentives

 

Cleveland City Council’s Development, Planning and Sustainability Committee on Tuesday signed off on a tax incentive package that includes a 15-year abatement on new taxes as a result of the improvements to the property. The package also includes a 30-year, tax-increment-financing plan that would help the company with debt service for the project.

The tax-increment financing will not have any impact on property taxes for Cleveland’s school district.

The package could go before Cleveland City Council on Monday for final approval.

Hingetown needs a retail-residential mix

 

Ashley Shaw, economic development and planning manager at OCI, said the majority of those surveyed stated that what they want are "hardware stores, drugstores and higher-end retail."

She pointed out that apartments in development will bolster the population density needed to attract a national brand such as CVS. As an example, she cited The Quarter, a complex that opened last October on Detroit Avenue, which "is now at 92% capacity within eight months of finishing their first 200 units." She added that she believes that rate will only continue to climb.

Hingetown, Cleveland's hottest development hotbed

 

Hingetown, that little enclave within a neighborhood within a city seemingly couldn't be growing any faster than already it is. No matter where you stand in Hingetown these days, you're either standing next to a 21st-century real estate development, across the street from one or you can see one less than a block away. Increasingly, in Hingetown, you're surrounded by projects.

That's a dramatic change considering that drug dealers and prostitutes once roamed this northeast corner of Cleveland's Ohio City neighborhood. Today, they have given way to young professionals eager to share their fresh ideas, families pushing baby strollers and entrepreneurs looking to make their mark or a new start. It's come a long way from what was a "toxic corner" as Vanity Fair told the enclave's story four years ago.

Now, one of the neighborhood's biggest developers, The Snavely Group, is rapidly expanding its footprint on Detroit Avenue which is along the northern edge of Hingetown (actually, the West Shoreway seems to be the unofficial northern boundary).

By the end of this year, Snavely reportedly hopes to delve into Phase 3 of its multi-phase, mixed-use, mixed-income development, moving westward from West 25th Street. A fourth phase may not be far behind that.
