^ Good riddance! How could the gays let that eyesore be built in the first place?? So tacky and terrible.

 

That thought occurred to me too, but for once I decided to be tactful lol

The density in Ohio City is going to be amazing.  Large apartment buildings are being constructed at 32nd Detroit, 30th Clinton, 20th Lorain, 25th Detroit, and 25th-28th Church.  Not to mention the new townhomes on Columbus, Abbey, 37th Clinton, and Case's 15 units on 31st and Franklin.

 

Did I miss any? 

 

If I had more time I would add up the total number of units. This is impressive stuff!

It's all very impressive... To add, I'd sure like to see that proposed apartment building (proposed a year or so ago) built on the land of the current Market Square Plaza, 25th and Lorain, adjacent/tied to, the Rapid Station.  The proposal and artist rending looked like an outstanding TOD.  Any word on that one?

Plus a bunch of new infill housing going into long-term empty lots (such as at John & 44th, along 41st south of Lorain, and along 29th between Franklin & Clinton).

Not the best shot (taken from the #55 on the Shoreway), but here's visual proof that the old spa bathouse on Detroit Avenue at West 32nd is in fact gone....

Hard to tell.  I don't know why they go to the trouble to post the images, but always at a resolution to small to read the text.

They post higher resolution images at CPC's website, but they are too large to post here. I've included the links to the larger images below...

Thanks ^

Yep, looks like the new addition on the south side will be replacing the perpendicular parking along Carroll Ave, which is good. Whenever I shop there, there's more than enough parking in their lot out front.

^just 1 and 2 bedrooms? Typical. If you want to build a neighborhood, some units need more than 2 bedrooms. Lots of households use more than 2 bedrooms---especially families that have more than one child, which is pretty common. (MOST people I know who have offspring have more than one child)..... so such projects--and many like them---preclude a huge segment of the market because they don't have any 3-bedroom units.

What's the market for 3 bedroom units in Ohio City?  Are they selling?  Are affluent families with children moving into this area?  Are they buying condos?

I wouldn't say i'm affluent, but if there were 3-bedroom units, i'd certainly consider it. And i'm sure I'm not the only person out there.

Only one-fourth of households have two or more children living with them...

That's not a huge market overall, and likely even a smaller market for urban households.

Either you're not saying it out of false modesty, or you aren't able to afford the units in this building.

About the lack of 3 bedroom units -- one fourth of households with 2+ children sounds like a large potential market to me. But if you really wanted a third bedroom in these condos I'm sure they'd build one for you... for a price. Looks like there is plenty of square footage.

FROM THE MAGAZINEOCTOBER 2015

How One Couple Turned a “Toxic Corner” of Cleveland into a Development Hotbed

Public art, bike racks, and renovations transformed Cleveland’s Hingetown neighborhood into a destination.

BY LEE CHILCOTE

 

Four years ago, Graham Veysey and Marika Shioiri-Clark set out to develop and cultivate their ideal neighborhood. “I wanted to go to a place where I could sink roots down and make an impact,” says 33-year-old Veysey, who owns a video-production company. They bought a former firehouse built in 1854, complete with three poles, and turned one of the old fire-truck bays into their living area. The second floor is now a collection of workspaces, including Veysey’s office and Shioiri-Clark’s design studio. The couple christened their once desolate area of Cleveland Hingetown (it’s the connector of three sections of town: the Warehouse District, the Ohio City Market District, and Gordon Square) and began changing the landscape. They added splashes of public art, flower baskets, and bike racks to the cracked concrete corners and renovated the decrepit building across the street, bringing in eight retail spaces and seven apartments—including a full-time Airbnb unit they use to show off the neighborhood. “If you have an idea, people here say, ‘O.K., let’s try it.’ It’s affordable and accessible, so you can do it and people support you,” says Shioiri-Clark, a 31-year-old architectural designer. “It’s really exciting to feel like I can be part of a small movement.”

Visible progress on this project. Snapped this picture on the walk back from the Ohio City Street Festival today (Very nice time!). Demolition of the (faux?) storefront between the two buildings. Happened sometime between Wednesday and now...
