Cleveland: Downtown: The Beacon

Recommended Posts

Indians winning 18 in a row? A crane downtown for a new apartments (which will be seen from the Jake come October)? We are truly witnessing history. Can't wait to see some filling in of the skyline between Public Square and East 9th.

 

So when complete will you be able to see 515 and/or the playhouse square building from Progressive Field? Thanks!

Most likely 515 from the nosebleeds since it is a mid rise. Playhouse is on the other side of the field outside of the cityscape, so you wouldn't even see it from nosebleed seats unless you look on the outside walkways underneath the seats. NuCLEus will either fill the space between 200 and terminal, or cover up our beautiful terminal tower. The only reason I dont like nuCLEus is because they put it in the wrong place...

^Have to disagree with you concerning the Playhouse Square Apartment Building.  You can see the Keith Building from upper deck seats on the third base line and left field and it is directly across the street and shorter.  In fact you can even see CSU's Rhodes Tower from those seats and it is much further down Euclid.

I don't think I've ever been on the 3rd at Indians games.

Driving into Cleveland tonight on 77 i noticed there was a crane behind the baseball stadium. It kind of looked like the yellow crane but hoisted high. It was also behind the At&t building if that helps out with perspective. I'm thinking that 515 shouldn't be that viewable from I77 though. What crane would that be?

It was that crane. You'll be able to see 515 from 77

It appears that there was a crane...building the crane...that will build the real crane...Mind BLOWN.

 

On a more serious note, I dont have any photos, but the secondary yellow crane is massive and has quite the presence in the middle of Euclid

EDIT: I wasnt sure if you were talking about the developer or the company building it. Glad Arbor is doing it.

Looks like someone is going to have a front-row view to this construction project! By sharing that picture from that vantage point, you do realize that we're going to count on you to provide us with regular photographic construction updates? ;)

This is pretty cool event to take advantage of Euclid Avenue being closed for the construction of the crane to build the new apartment tower.

during the week of September 11, local organizations wanted to utilize this opportunity to do something

fun and interesting in the area.

lunch hours, but it gives people the opportunity to explore the businesses in the district, as well.

Four and Giant Jenga, outside of the Cleveland Visitors Center.

• UH Bikes will set up a temporary bike station where visitors can obtain a card for a free 30-minute bike

rental.

• Live music entertainment will also be provided while guests walk around the area.

 

Who is involved with “Play Euclid”?

• This collaborative effort was spearheaded by the Historic Gateway Neighborhood Corporation who

engaged the following groups organizations that worked hard to put together this event in two weeks’

time: City of Cleveland, Downtown Cleveland Alliance, Destination Cleveland, Bike Cleveland, UH Bikes,

LAND Studio, Cleveland Urban Design Collaborative and Trust for Public Land.

• “Play Euclid” is taking place Wednesday, Sept. 13 – Friday Sept. 15, 11 a.m. – 2p.m. It will be held on

I do, but unfortunately Friday is my last day with this company.  :|

 

I'll get some of my soon to be ex-coworkers to take some pictures.

Watching the Indians game today, the construction crane is very visible in most views. When they do the downtown panoramic view from the upper deck, the crane dominates.

Looks like the construction crane is within the boundaries of the building. That creates a shaft within the building that must be put to use after the crane is removed. Could be the itility uptake and maybe an elevator bank.
