These are the current pictures of the Southwyck Mall that I took on 11-12-2005, this mall opened in the early 70s and was very popular from 1970s to the early 90s until the big box stores took the reigns of the shopping war:

Town Center at Levis Commons Pictures

Here are some current pictures of the Town Center at Levis Commons development which I took on 11-12-2005; you can see the magnitude of retail and residential development that is being built in Toledo's southern suburb of Perrysburg. You can see previous posts about this development in regards to the developmental process:

Northern side of the development is the Showcase Cinema:


The retail and restaurants' "Main Street" development:




Residential development on the south side of the "Main Street" of Levis Commons which consists of homes, condominiums, and apartments:

Maumee Theatre

Here are some pictures and an article in regarding to the $3-million refurbished Maumee Indoor Theatre that was completed and opened in May of 2004. I love this theater and I've got to give props to the Maumee community for polishing this jewel. Maumee is a suburb right along the southside of Toledo's city limit.

I took these shots on 11-12-2005:

Special Bonus

I took this bonus shot for this thread on 11-12-2005 right off the I-75 freeway ramp as it turns right into the downtown. The fall weather was crisp and sunny as the skyline looks great from the south view:

Sports Arena Development No. 3

The city bought the Sports Arena infrastructure and property to put together the Marina District development. The Sports Arena was built in 1947 and it's long overdue for a brand-new one to be built for Toledo which is underway for planning:

Marina District Development No. 3

Good news for the progress of the Marina District as getting fundings for the boat slips and ferry terminal project. Right now the plans with the ferry terminal will have ferries go from Toledo to Windsor and Toledo to the Erie Islands with Port Clinton and Sandusky. I've always loved the ferry trips as it adds a lot of ambience to the Great Lakes environment. This article was in this morning's local paper:


Grant will pay for slips at proposed marina

The U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service has announced a $226,500 grant to the city of Toledo to build transient boat moorage at the proposed Marina District’s public marina along the Maumee River.

The Boating Infrastructure Grant will pay for construction of 20 boat slips at the marina that will be reserved for use by boaters visiting the Marina District and the rest of downtown Toledo.

The proposed Glass City Municipal Marina will have a total of 100 boat slips, with the other 80 available for long-term rental.

The Marina District project plan includes a mix of residential and commercial development and a marine passenger terminal capable of receiving Hovercraft as well as conventional passenger vessels, such as cruise ships.

Shops at Fallen Timbers Update No. 2

This news caught my eyes this morning. After delays and stalling for the past 8-years--I'm kind of hoping this project is dead duck in the water. I'm against urban sprawl and against development in the outer ring of the urban areas. Infill developments and redevelopment is the key to urban growth as far as protecting the rural/agricultural/environment areas.

Here is a few pictures of the plans which I posted very early on in this thread:




Landowner files lawsuit over Fallen Timbers plan

The owner of land near the Fallen Timbers shopping center project in Maumee yesterday filed a lawsuit in Lucas County Common Pleas Court to stop a new site plan that recently was approved for the project.

Isaac Land Investments, which owns and plans to develop 310 acres next to the Fallen Timbers center, said changes in the revised site plan were unlawful and asked that the plan be reversed, set aside, or vacated.

The approval came on Oct. 24 to accept a site plan that turns Jerome Road into a cul-de-sac, removing an intersection with Russell Road. The change was designed to eliminate mall traffic on Jerome.

However, Isaac Land Investment claims the plans would hinder its ability to develop land near the project.

The lawsuit was assigned to Judge Thomas Osowik.

Special Bonus Pictures No. 3 taken on 11-26-2005

I took varies of pictures around Toledo today (11-26-2005) while the Downtown Holiday Parade was happening and you can tell we had quite a bit of snow in the past couple of days around the Thanksgiving holiday. Some of these pictures are from the Vistula neighborhood which is right on the northside of the downtown, Uptown District, and Warehouse District:

Adele Funeral Home Building on Cherry Street which was built in 1937:


This building in the Uptown District on Adams Street was renovated as offices filled up this beautiful building:


This Ashland Avenue Baptist Church is on the end of the Uptown District heading into the Old West End neighborhood:


Central Catholic High School on Cherry Street:


An old house that was renovated into a law firm office right on Cherry Street which is a few blocks from the Central Catholic High School:


A spanish-style missionary building which is the Fire Station on Erie Street that is located in the Vistula neighborhood north of downtown:


Erie Street Market (opened and renovated in late 1990s) located in the Warehouse District south of downtown--it has a Libbey Glass Outlet, a huge antique store, restaurants, and many varieties of vendors with food, wine, bakery, accessories, gifts, arts, and etc. It also has an outdoor Farmer's Market behind the main street market building; notice the Frog statue in the market lobby which the city had over 200 statues of frogs around the city (happened in the year of 2000) just like Chicago did with cows and Vancouver did with killer whales:





The old Hillcrest Hotel was renovated for apartments and condomimiums in 1996 and opened for residents in 1998 which I was glad this building wasn't demolished--it's located in the Uptown District:



Pictures around the Vistula neighorhood north of the downtown area--this area is undergoing a huge gentrification of homes and buildings being restored and renovated:













St. Mary's Church of the Assumption located next to the St. Vincent's Mercy Campus off of Cherry Street:


Catholic Diocese Regional Office--they went under a massive renovation back in 2000-01 by restoring/cleaning exterior bricks, adding an elevator, all new windows, and renovations inside--this building is located near Cherry Street:


This old building used to be "Fire-Police-Alarm" building which was used for safety services back in the 1800s to early 1900s--now it's used for Administrative offices for the police department:


The building in the middle (more to the right) of the picture is the Toledo Building which was the very "first" skyscraper in Toledo built in late 1800s located on Michigan Avenue; the building is occupied with offices:


These buildings along Ontario Street which is in the Warehouse District has been renovated for art gallerys, antique shops, and condos; the Willis Day building in the back is now Xerox Corporation office on the first three floors:

jesus christ, its damn nice to know that something good is happening uptown at the Vistula. That was once known as one of the most dangerous hoods in the midwest at a period of time.

Thats where my parents grew up, and is still where a large chunk of my family lives. Nice to see the gentrification.

Note: The Vistula was the site of the Neo-Nazi riots about a month and a half ago.

With the "actual" site of the riot from where I took the Vistula neighborhood pictures--it was more up north near Woodward High School at Stickney and Central Avenues on the other side of the GreenBelt Parkway (1.5 miles away). Vistula tends to occupy the first 4-5 blocks all along the Maumee River going north away from downtown to the new I-280 Bridge.

UT & MUO Development News

The merging of University of Toledo (20,000 students) and Medical University of Ohio (3,000 students) as one school to be named as "University of Toledo" is quite undertaking yet exciting. With the long-range plans to develop "Science Technology Corridor" which is a light-rail project connecting Owens State Community College, Bowling Green State University, MUO, UT (both Main and Scott Campus), the Toledo Hospital campus, and downtown; this project strengthens the engineering, bio-tech, and medical field industries to have connections with schools and hospitals. There's an article in this morning's paper that the Board of Regents has approved the merger which this has been the story for the past couple of months I felt it was appropriate to annouce the news until the merger was closer to reality. This merger is going to spur a lot of infill developments in between the two schools. I'll keep posting for more future planned developments as the story keeps coming.
