this is so true...  I work in this area and struggle to find options other than fast food chain restaurants...  but I think that area could be a foodie destination in the near future...  the food hub should be coming online with more local food options soon, adding to angie's, cleveland bagel, and souper market...  FYI... dave's grocery is a great lunch time option, indoor and outdoor seating with multiple resturants...

you forgot to mention Gallucci's.

I saw up-thread that the building for rumi's market is being sold, I hope this does not affect the grocery store....  I also had no idea vienna distributing was a retail butcher shop....   the neighborhood is changing, maybe better signage and windows facing carnegie ave...  same for gallucci's...   IMHO

Rumi's has been publicly for sale for over 2 years now (with a mention of "CONFIDENTIAL - please do not contact tenant") and still no buyer.

Not a huge fan of this.  With the so-called Med Mart center of innovation sitting largely empty and the upcoming blockland - do we really need another innovation center?  Maybe I just don't understand the purpose of each center, but c'mon.

Has nothing to do with med mart (totally different neighborhood). And if you read the article, heavy hitters are already a part of it. This isn’t speculative. Also, MidTown Cleveland aren’t any slouches. They aren’t going to be part of a dummy mission. They know what they’re doing

Note that there is a tech incubator/co-working space at the MidTown Tech Hive just two blocks away. I met with MidTown Director Jeff Epstein at the Tech Hive a few weeks ago and he gave me a tour. He said the co-working space is pretty full. Sounds like this innovation center will help add more co-working capacity to the neighborhood.

The more the merrier. There is a lack of proper co-working space as it is. And anything that helps incubate more startups is a good thing.

The big building at 6510 Euclid Ave is being demolished. Preparing the area for upcoming developments.

I just google street viewed the address.  That area of Euclid looks like it must have in 1840.🙄

That's not really such a big loss.  The facade on it is ok 1900's commercial architecture, but nothing special.  Behind that it's just a long featureless one story building.  This clears up a large, contiguous development site.

so when do you stop trying to be innovative...   maybe build some additional steel mills or gas powered automobile plants...??

But that's just steps away from Terdolph park!

 

All of the recent activity there and closer to the Agora start to paint the picture of the overall neighborhood vision @KJP keeps nodding to. The Midtown Cleveland CDC has been very busy it seems.

Cleveland Foundation buys planned headquarters site in Midtown as legal dispute continues

Updated 6:05 AM;Today 5:00 AM

By Jordyn Grzelewski, The Plain Dealer

 

CLEVELAND, Ohio — The Cleveland Foundation, despite a pending lawsuit challenging the move, has purchased the Midtown property where it wants to build its new headquarters.

 

The $600,305 sale of 1.2 acres on East 66th Street between Euclid and Chester avenues closed Nov. 25, according to Cuyahoga County property records. The seller was Dunham Tavern Museum, a historic former stagecoach stop and tavern at 6709 Euclid Ave. The foundation purchased the property through an affiliated LLC.

 

Plans for the new headquarters call for a three-story building at the northeast corner of East 66th and Euclid, just west of Dunham Tavern. The campus is being designed by New York-based S9 Architecture.

Anyone seen any renderings of what this will look like? They’re completely stripping this building down. Will basically be a brand new build.

No idea (sorry), but it kind of reminds me of the an old state building in Buffalo (if anything, it shows how much is possible when stripped down to the bare bones), curious to see any renderings of this build.

Anything that's 50 years or older qualifies for historic tax credits. 3101 Euclid was built in 1959.

I do like the idea of retail on the first floor.  This area seems under served in that respect.


I’m really excited for this and hope we get something good (crossing my fingers for a coffee shop / cafe or restaurant). Selfishly: since I work across the street and having a convenient, walkable dining option here would be amazing. Generally: because this area needs retail anyway and would benefit from added street life and activated ground floors.

You haven't tried the Mediterranean place that recently opened just west of 3101? 🙂

I'm excited to see that AHF has opened a wellness center on Euclid, offering free HIV/STD screening and counseling for the community. They're a highly reputable, LA-based national organization, that serves communities in need.

They bought AIDS Task Force. Same place, just more resources now.

Having worked in Infectious Disease/Immunology, including CT/GC/CA/TV, HBV, HCV, HIV and HSV, since the 90s in NYC, I have a thorough understanding and appreciation for the need to provide these services to underserved communities. It's a great addition by, as you mention, a tremendously-resourced, not-for-profit organization.

125 jobs from Richfield to Midtown!

 

January 03, 2020 01:11 PM updated an hour ago

Food manufacturer plans move to a Cleveland headquarters

Stan Bullard

Consumer foods product maker Eagle Family Foods Group LLC is preparing to land in the Phoenix Building, a 1918-vintage building at 1975 E. 61st St. in Cleveland that Hemingway Development has updated inside to serve as a contemporary corporate headquarters.

Legislation to provide incentives to Eagle is pending before Cleveland City Council because the company would bring a $14 million annual payroll, producing an estimated $225,000 in municipal income tax from bringing 125 jobs to Cleveland, according to a briefing document the city's economic development department filed with council.

Cleveland Cyclewerks, a local motorcycle manufacturer plans to locate its new headquarters in midtown. They're not 100% set on a property but it looks like the current plan is for acquiring and redeveloping the abandoned structure at 6512 Carnegie.

This is also in conjunction with their upcoming announcement for a new motorcycle. It will be their first electric bike and the first one they will be manufacturing in Cleveland. On the announcement:

Sad to see them leaving Gordon Square. Wondering if that complex on West 65th is being targeted for a residential makeover.

That's a bad location for a bike shop or any manufacturing.

 

Residential makes much more sense there.

Not surprising. The building at 6512 Carnegie used to be the Accurate Plating Co. Across Carnegie you have Tempo Products Co., Pierre's Ice Cream plant, American Sugar Refining/Domino's factory and a block west of here you have Haus Malts' malting facility. Interestingly, most of the land around here is zoned as Midtown Mixed Use District, but 6512 Carnegie is one of the few parcels in the area zoned for General Industry.

^That's a great mix of industrial uses already there. If we can get the mixed use developments Midtown Inc. is pushing for at Euclid and 55th and maybe some streetscape upgrades along 55th, then we can reclaim a great little pocket neighborhood like used to be there.

Nice finds! Despite the similar vantage points, I was having a hard time comparing these so I cropped, scaled, and changed the perspective and overlaid them so you can slide back and forth. It's a little distorted, but it made comparing a lot easier for me:

Possibly more of a Fairfax than Midtown comment, but looking south of CCF, you can really see how many houses CCRLC has demo’d over the last decade.

Indeed, tremendous demolition.

 

When I was born at Mount Sinai MC in 1956, we lived in a rowhouse on E. 100th Street and Cedar Ave. It is now home to CCF Lerner Research Institute and everything that was on Cedar, Quincy and Carnegie is gone.

The Stockbridge Apartments building is for sale.  I hope this one falls into the right hands.  It's now a chopped-up 77 units.  I have read that it was originally built to offer multiroom suites for use by residents of Euclid Avenue whose houses became temporarily unusable.
