CMA unveils landscape plan that includes dining outside West Wing, skating on Wade Lagoon

Updated 8:17 AM; Today 8:00 AM

By Steven Litt, The Plain Dealer

 

CLEVELAND, Ohio – The Cleveland Museum of Art is expanding its reach and sharpening its vision for the future of the 42.5 acres of land it owns or manages in University Circle.

 

A new landscape master plan completed by the museum envisions a skating area on Wade Lagoon, an outdoor dining area at the tip of its West Wing and improved wheelchair accessibility on crumbling pathways around the Fine Arts Garden.

^ Overall this plan looks great. Did you notice that one of the last images has a massing for the UC3 redevelopment? It looks quite tall in the image. Looks about twice the height of Judson Manor. I also noticed that these images did NOT show the reconfigured Chester / MLK / Stokes interchange I’m hoping we get.

University Circle's trio of 11-story developments

 

Three developments featuring 11-story residential buildings are planned to rise in the coming months in Cleveland's University Circle. Two are slated to be on Euclid Avenue but won't be next to each other. In fact, they'll be on opposite ends of the city's fast-growing cultural, educational and medical district. The third will be less than two blocks north of the westernmost tower.

The Finch Group is proposing to build a mixed-use project called Infinium on the soon-to-be-vacated site of the Cleveland-East facility for the Centers for Dialysis Care (CDC), 11717 Euclid Ave., according to two sources.

This is great to hear. This site has been dominated by an ugly building and a huge parking lot for so long. I really like that they are adding townhouses to hide the parking on 117th and 118th.

 

The design is bad in many ways.

Ken...thanks for all your informative and optimistic articles.  Love the inside and early days information you dig up.

 

I hate to be that person (but of course I will be) but not crazy about certain aspects of the dialysis center conceptual.  I think the eleven story building should be closer to Euclid.  It may very well overwhelm one of the neat traditional looking CWRU dorms to the west in its current configuration.  Also not sure about the plaza.  I am getting a 1970's mid-size Midwest college town vibe from it (think Ann Arbor).

I said it before and I’ll say it again. I can’t keep up with all the development going on in Cleveland. Ten years ago on this site we were hungry for any announcement of a potential development. Unlike ten years ago a lot of these developments are not just some pipe dream they are actually coming to fruition.  Thank you for keeping us informed KJP!

I'm literally having this conversation with my friend from college, a Boston transplant. He says Cleveland is still missing that WOW factor, something you only can find in Cleveland. I told him that Cleveland is playing catch up and went decades without true development and that I prefer a well rounded city that offers a variety of amenities and not just one big one. That is what Cleveland, especially University Circle (see how I brought it back on topic lol) offers.

A sunset cruise on Lake Erie off downtown Cleveland, the West Side Market on a Saturday at lunchtime, watching a 900-foot-long freighter go down the Cuyahoga, a sunny October day in the Rocky River Metroparks, Heinen's downtown grocery store, The Feast of The Assumption or any of the many cultural festivals enjoyed with my family....all those things and more make me go "wow."

Early Plan For Library Lofts  

 

By Steven Litt, The Plain Dealer

CLEVELAND, Ohio – Initial plans for an apartment building to be built atop a future library along Euclid Avenue in University Circle quickly won approval Thursday from the city’s Euclid Corridor Design Review Committee.

The apartment project, called Library Lofts, takes its inspiration – naturally enough – from bookshelves.

The Marriott Residence Inn, which is part of the Innova complex and across from the Cle Clinic opened today. It is nice to see more lights and activity in that area. Also just down the street at 69th the Tru should be open in about a month.  That's about 300 new rooms which in my opinion are much needed to continue to compete. It is my hope with these type of new hotels places like University Hotel and Suites/36th&Euclid which Trip Advisor describes as "disgusting" will be put out of business and replaced.

Its also a very walkable city. How many downtown areas have have three professional sporting venues within walking distance of each other? It also has Playhouse Square to boot.

Would love to city the Cultural Gardens of Rockefeller Park one day be lined up with high end luxury apartment/ condos on both sides linking Bratenahl  with University Circle. Its has the potential to be our "Central Park"

Can't say I like how the UC3 massing overwhelms the the profile of the iconic United Methodist Church. Its perhaps the most signature building  of University Circle. I think its important to preserve the park-like  atmosphere of the neighborhood with its sunny lush greenery as opposed to the dark shadows of downtown with its tall buildings. The two should maintain their separate identities.

I probably shouldn't look at massings like this too closely, or attempt to draw conclusions from them, but those are some pretty big buildings over in the CWRU South Residential Village, near the RTA UC-Cedar station.

Thanks! I forgot about this project. Amazing that this area and mid town are seeing this type of development.

I would particularly like these in-town hotels to get the business rather than the farther out ones - like in the distance suburbs; and that includes whenever some entity wants to build a hotel or motel far out they consider these closer-in ones and perhaps decide it might drop their plans.

It seems like these hotels and the suburban ones don't compete all that directly.  The suburban ones tend to cater more to business travelers who need to visit businesses out that way (like the companies along the 271 corridor for instance).  The city ones seem to be either for leisure travelers, convention business or people visiting businesses downtown or in UC.

In most cities that would be true but not totally true for Cleveland.  Due to the lack of large convention sized properties downtown, the Suburban hotels, cater to both business and leisure travelers.  The midtown property is a break from that and hopefully more properties will open in Midtown, UC, Ohio City, Tremont and Detroit-Shoreway.  Having a hotel further demonstrates your a well rounded area/neighborhood.

114 rooms.  (hint Google 😉 )

@Pugu may have been referring to the Residence Inn which has 175 rooms. The soon to be open Tru will have 114.

Perfect example of why forumers should use quotes and be specific when asking questions on the board.  Just a gentle suggestion.

^Understood, thanks. I was indeed referring to the new Residence Inn by the Clinic. 175 is not too bad. The Courtyard by UH has about 150 rooms. By comparison the new Hilton has about 600 rooms, the Renaissance at Public Square has 490 rooms, and the Kimpton Schofield has about 120 rooms.

Seeds & Sprouts II - Early intel on real estate projects


This is the second edition of Seeds & Sprouts - Early intelligence on Cleveland-area real estate projects. Because these projects are very early in their process of development or just a long-range plan, a lot can and probably will change their final shape, use and outcome.

 

University Circle: Cleveland Clinic partners in residential project

A former medical office building uphill from the heart of University Circle is proposed to be redeveloped with 38 housing units, both for-sale and rental. Cleveland Clinic Foundation's Fairhill Facility, 11203 Stokes Blvd., and its two acres of land will be redeveloped as North Park Place by Premier Development Partners of Cleveland.

here is a Cleveland Scene Article about this development.

 

Dirt is being moved on the property which has been cleared of trash and vegetation.

 

I hope this project brings some attention to the 9410 Hough Avenue apartment tower that has been sitting windowless and empty for years. But I did find a snazzy fantasy rendering?

The industrial parade of the long cargo container ships meandering along the bends of the Cuyahoga river is the city's most unique feature. To have a meal there along its banks where you can almost reach out and touch the ships is quite a treat! No other city has that to my knowledge. Geography plays a big role in shaping and defining a city, everything else is more of less just a commodity that you can find in most other cities. Obviously things like the Westside Market and the Arcade are man-made assets that would be difficult to reproduce elswhere, but those are few and far between.

It is still somewhat shocking to see one of these giant freighters go by in close quarters.  There must be other cities where this happens but I don't know what they are.

With Horton Harper's involvement, these might be fairly nice.

The same review will look at an 8-unit apartment on Ashbury Ave. "Circle North" may prove to be a successful bet by the city.

Small pet peeve, but this should be in the Glenville Development thread.  Give each neighborhood it’s due.

 

Too much gets l crammed into the University Circle thread...when it’s often technically Hough, Glenville, Fairfax, East Cleveland, etc.

Not that it has to do with development, but I think people have a hard time associating development in neighborhoods that aren’t viewed as positively as UC.  A really interesting drive, south on E 105 from Superior to Quincy and you’ll see some of the most affluent and most depressed areas big city USA has to offer, all within a little more than a mile.
