Cleveland: University Circle (General): Development and Construction

Recommended Posts

Thanks. Although the parcels I saw listed were all north/west of the tracks, including the big parcel along the north side of MLK between Euclid and the tracks. Multiple buildings are in that parcel, so I don't know which building it is. Maybe all of them?? And another parcel I remember was on Cornell, including the greenspace at the corner of Cornell Road and Cornell Court.

The ~$72 million building will have 600 residences for 2nd year students.

Do you know if this is going to be replacing any older dorms elsewhere, or is there a need for new residences? I'm hoping for the latter as someone who lives in the area. Between these, the other Little Italy developments, Top of the Hill, plus other developments around and throughout the area, there is going to be a solid 1000+ increase in residents in basically just a half square mile.

For the past year after year, CWRU's freshman classes have been their biggest ever. They are already extremely strained with a lack of dorms which is why they need this and have been making it easier for upperclassmen to live off campus.

Eventually, they want to have enough new residences to remove the 3 dorms at the top of the hill, but not anytime soon and not if enrollment continues to grow as it has been.

CWRU plans $72+ million dorm expansion, more coming

 

In most years, Case Western Reserve University's (CWRU) freshman classes get bigger. And each year, CWRU looks for ways to accommodate the growth of its enrollment that has surpassed 12,000, compared to 9,600 students in 2000. Their expansion options have involved building new dormitories as well as making it easier for more upperclassmen to live off campus.

But it's been five years since CWRU built a new dorm. That's due to change soon in the South Residential Village where Murray Hill and Adelbert roads intersect. There, two new dorms totaling 600 beds are due to see construction start next year and be completed in 2023, according to administrators and architects who made an on-campus presentation to students this week.

The only thing starting soon here will be the renovation of Fribley, the dining hall, so I assume it's part of that.

The Fribley renovations were approved by the Landmarks Commission and Cleveland Heights (City line goes through the building). Since this is all proposed within the boundaries of the Little Italy Historic District, it technically belongs in that thread. They probably won't get too much push back from the residents on this one as although they are eliminating parking (student mostly I would guess), they aren't proposing any demolition.

 

Now if they decide to expand across the street and propose eliminating the buildings on Murray Hill, you might get a bit of a fight.

This land right next to the University Circle train station is a piece of land that would be great for TOD. I hope to see it developed one day.

Location seems nice but unfortunately it's in the middle of two major roads and an active rail line. It needs a lot of work to be a more walkable area.

More reason to use the transit that's next to them 😂. Take the train to Little Italy and walk 😂

There was a TOD proposed there with a bus station on the ground level. I'll see if I can find the rendering. This was the site of RTA's previous bus station for UC.

Here ya go. Threw in a UC-wide masterplan document too. Unfortunately the resolution from these graphics aren't great. These are all from 2006. You know you're getting old when 14 years ago doesn't seem that long ago....

A new road plan like this would do wonders for the area. Maybe something to do coinciding with the new CWRU dorms and planned bridge to thinkbox.

I still like the plan maybe now that the train station is moved the walkway can be placed in that direction. Designed correctly it could be a kick off of other development around there. Is the Bioenterprise building fully occupied? If not a conversion of a part of that building into residential would be possible as well.

Those are awesome. Love that first one with massive overhang.

Completely agree!  While I'd be happy with any of them, the first one is my favorite!

this could be posted someplace else on the forum...  I checked the superman thread and it's not there....  if the statue is not going downtown then I think university circle is a good alternative...   if we could also get a museum in the circle along with a shuttle to the birthplace of shuster I think that would be a major attraction...  to save money, the museum would not need to be a stand alone building....

Superman statue needs new landing site, Rock Hall locale out

Updated Jan 30, 2019; Posted Feb 06, 2018

 

By Michael Sangiacomo, The Plain Dealer

CLEVELAND, Ohio - Plans for the installation of a larger-than-life statue of Superman are once again up in the air. And not in a "Look, it's a bird..." way.

 

In a meeting Monday afternoon between city officials, sculptor David Deming and members of the statue committee, it was confirmed that the original site near the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame and Museum is no longer available.

Not an article. It was the date of the first post in the Superman thread.

 

I think the statue should go at a public commons somewhere in Glenville, such as at East 105th Superior or at East 105th and St. Clair. Either are among the most important sections of Glenville, the neighborhood where Superman was born.
