New design review case in midtown!

"7107 EUCLID AVE PARKING LOT REMOVAL"

The building at 7107 along with the empty parcels north of it along E 71st have, since September, all been owned by "EUCLID 71 LLC" which is associated with Berusch Development Partners.

EDIT:

Here's the link. Currently not much info on it.

 

Is Berusch the group behind One Midtown, which is immediately east of 7107 Euclid?

Nope that's the Vazza Real Estate Group. Berusch helped with uptown and developed Euclid 116

Cleveland Foundation acquires Midtown land for new HQ

 

Despite a cloud of legal action hanging over it, titles to two Midtown properties were transferred last week to the Cleveland Foundation for its proposed new headquarters.

A 50,500-square-foot HQ is proposed to be the first phase of a civic and mixed-use district along both sides of Euclid Avenue and on both sides of East 66th Street led by the foundation.

 

The Cleveland Foundation said it is leading multiple partners and investors in a direct real estate development approach to bolstering Midtown to enhance the vibrancy of Cleveland’s neighborhoods and public spaces.

EDIT: Updated with additional information and a quote.

 

Glad to see this moving forward. Read the article again—Midtown Cleveland’s executive director has a very unfortunate name!!

Restaurant to be opening at 3915 Carnegie Ave?

Gihad Zayed, owner of Speedy's Grub Shack (a Lakewood restaurant in a gas station with overwhelmingly positive reviews) has filed a building permit for use of the property.

Especially awesome news considering there aren't many options outside of big chain restaurants (mcdonalds, subway) in this part of midtown

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...

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.

Cant recall if someone has already brought this up, so apologies if I’m rehashing anything. Just passed the Coliseum and it says sale pending.

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.

Nor can it be if they're using historic tax credits.

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.
