Stark and J-Dek's nuCLEus project wins unanimous conceptual approval from Cleveland planning commission



Quote:
CLEVELAND, Ohio – Developer Robert Stark wowed the city's planning commission Friday morning, easily winning unanimous conceptual approval for a proposed, $250-million to $350-million development he calls nuCLEus that could transform a moribund part of downtown near the Gateway sports complex.

The commission voted 6-0 to approve Stark's early diagrammatic plan and a proposal for tax increment financing in which the city would allow the non-school portion of increased real estate tax revenue from the project to help finance project debt.



The nuCLEus project - whose name is a play on the idea of the central role it intends to play downtown - would be located primarily on two blocks sandwiched by Prospect Avenue and Huron Road, just north of the Q and east of East 4th Street.

It would encompass 120,000 to 140,000 square feet of retail, a 150- to 200-room hotel, 200,000 square feet of office space, 500 residential units and 1,500 to 1,600 parking spaces in garage levels stacked above street-level restaurants and stores.

Colored diagrams describing the shape, or massing, of the project, show it could include several towers, the tallest of which could reach 500 feet, or roughly 30 stories.

First look: nuCLEus project renderings show 54-story tower in downtown Cleveland















Quote:
CLEVELAND, Ohio -- A residential tower at the nuCLEus project in downtown Cleveland could stand 54 stories -- or 647 feet -- high, making it the city's fourth-tallest building.

The developers behind the skyline-changing nuCLEus proposal filed their first crop of renderings with the city Thursday. The images show how Stark Enterprises of Cleveland and J-Dek Investments Ltd. of Solon hope to fit apartments, offices, stores, restaurants, hotel rooms, parking garages and -- possibly -- a few dozen condominiums onto a 3-acre site in the Gateway District.

J-Dek and Stark also confirmed that they've hired NBBJ as the lead architect on the project, which now carries an estimated price tag of $380 million to $400 million. Bialosky + Partners Architects, a local firm, will assist NBBJ designers from Columbus, New York and Shanghai. [...]

"We believe downtown Cleveland is in the middle of a renaissance and will need buildings of this height to meet future demands," lead designer A.J. Montero, a partner at NBBJ, wrote in an email Thursday. [...]

At the southeast corner of East Fourth Street and Prospect Avenue, the building would include street-level retail wrapped around a parking garage. Apartments would line the Prospect side of the garage.

Partway up the tower, a six-story bridge would break up the column of residences. That bridge actually is a hotel, which would link the apartment building to an office building to the east. Above the hotel, the tower would hold more apartments and, at the top, potential condominiums.

"We wanted to create a design that would be a contemporary landmark, and yet drew parallels to Cleveland's rich history," Montero wrote in a response to emailed questions. "The design of the bridge in nuCLEus parallels the iconic bridges that cross the river, while at the same time creates a building that people all across the country and even the world will recognize as 'only in Cleveland." [...]

The entire nuCLEus project could include 500 residences, 1,600 parking spaces, 200,000 square feet of offices and 140,000 square feet of retail, plus the hotel. Stark has waxed poetic about the opportunity to create "laneways" -- alleys lined with small shops, bars and outdoor dining -- as intimate spaces between the development's tall buildings.

J-Dek and Stark plan to seek schematic design approval for nuCLEus from the Cleveland City Planning Commission next week. The project is slated for discussion at a city design review committee Jan. 15, before the commission's Jan. 16 meeting. The project clearly will require zoning modifications and other public approvals.

It looks fantastic, and last I knew, downtown residential vacancies were in the low teens if not single digits, but I'm still not keeping my fingers crossed for a project of this scale.

The new proposal is just short of the skyscraper category. This is a spectacular expansion of the previous plan; presumably Mr. Stark has the market surveys to back it up and support the financing.

The initial design invites some changes, although I like the 'bridge'.

I find it ugly. Other than the sky bridge incorporated in the complex, this project is a fail design wise. Too bad for a great city like Cleveland.

Looks like a NYC condo jammed into the Rust Belt! Would be interesting to see how it pans out.

Slightly old news

City review panels unanimously approve Stark and J-Dek nuCLEus development concept

Quote:
CLEVELAND, Ohio – Amid warm praise and a few caveats and suggestions for improvement, the city's Downtown/Flats Design Review Committee and Planning Commission unanimously approved plans for the massive nuCLEus development for downtown in meetings Thursday and Friday. [...]
Quote:
The development, for which the developers have not yet said they've completed financing, would include the city's fourth-tallest skyscraper and could have a transformative effect on downtown.

Designed by the Columbus-based architecture firm of NBBJ, nuCLEus would cost $380 million to $400 million, and would include 500-plus apartments, a smattering of condominium penthouses, 1,600 parking spaces, 200,000 square feet of offices, 140,000 square feet of retail and a 150-room hotel.

The early stage or "schematic" design contemplated for the project calls for inserting the five-level hotel in a bridge over East Sixth Street that would connect a 54-story apartment tower to the west and a 23-story office tower to the east.

Also unusual is the glassy skin for the apartment tower, which would have inset balconies, creating rectangular hollows spaced irregularly across the facades. [...]
Quote:
Steven Coven, director of development and senior real estate counsel at Stark, said demolition of two buildings, including an outmoded, 600-space parking garage, could begin this spring on the 2.9-acre project site, which occupies parts of two blocks from East Fourth Street to East Sixth Street and slightly beyond, and between Prospect Avenue and Huron Road.

He said that if the development team can close on public subsidies by June, the goal is to complete the first portion of the two-part garage by the summer of 2016, in time for use during the Republican National Convention in Cleveland.

Coven said the developers would then hope to open retail spaces in the project, which would wrap the garage at street level, in the fall of 2016 and to proceed with other stages of construction. [...]
Quote:
In comments during the meetings Thursday and Friday, members of the Design Review Committee and Planning Commission mainly offered compliments.

Coyne on Friday emphasized his praise of the developers' decision to "wrap" the corner of the multistory garage at Prospect and East Fourth Street with apartments to mask the concrete layer cake inside.

"Far too many garages downtown create dead spaces," he said.

Jennifer Coleman, who chairs the Design Review Committee and sits on the Planning Commission as an alternate, said she wanted to hold the developers to their promise to provide public access to the roof of the garage off East Fourth Street.

"I love the idea of having a public space that not just the high-end, chichi people can go to," she said in Thursday's meeting. "It's a strong statement, and I'm going to hold you to it."

Members of the design team said after Friday's meeting that they'd also consider whether the public could access a second outdoor space where the hotel would rest atop the office tower to the east of the apartment tower.

Neither the Planning Commission nor the design committee raised any questions over the type of permitting needed to build the hotel in a bridge 243 feet over a city street. To the contrary, they seemed to love the idea for its iconic potential.

But Coleman said in Thursday's and Friday's meetings that she was concerned about what she viewed as the abrupt termination of the tall apartment tower with a flat roof.

She said she wanted the designers to consider modifying the design to create more of a visual dialogue with the tops of the city's three existing skyscrapers – the 1931 Terminal Tower, the 1985 BP Tower and the 1991 Key Tower, the tallest U.S. building between Philadelphia and Chicago.

"It was one of the first things I thought" about the design, review committee member Thom Geist said at Thursday's meeting. "The top is flat and it just stops. Otherwise, I love it."

Geist said aside from that observation, "I think it's a fantastic proposal; the hotel [bridging East Sixth Street] is imaginative and unique."

And yet, referring to the lack of an announcement about financing, Geist asked the project team, "Is this going to be one of those projects that we see once and we don't ever see again?"

Coven and the architects from NBBJ assured him that wouldn't be the case.
Let's hope not

Benesch will take 1/3 of the planned space in the office tower. The proposal of an additional 100,000 ft of space for office portion of the project is interesting if it means the hotel "crossbar" portion of the project goes higher. To keep the current proportionality, the taller apartment tower would also need to grow.

FROM THE REAL ESTATE SECTION OF CLEVELAND.COM

Cleveland Live! will anchor nuCLEus project retail; Shake Shack, HopCat, Starbucks.
February 08, 2017

CLEVELAND, Ohio - A nearly 50,000-square-foot entertainment venue called Cleveland Live! will be a major anchor for the planned nuCLEus project in downtown's Gateway District.

Stark Enterprises has inked deals with a cluster of retail tenants new to this region, with Cleveland Live! taking a marquee space. The Cleveland-based developer also announced leases with Shake Shack, a burger joint opening its first Ohio location; Starbucks Reserve, an upscale coffee-bar concept making its Ohio debut; and HopCat, a large restaurant and craft beer bar.

News of the retail roster comes as Stark and its partner, J-Dek Investments Ltd. of Solon, are trying to knit together public and private funding for their ambitious project.

First proposed in late 2014, nuCLEus would be a $540 million endeavor marrying 400 residences - mostly rental, but condominiums also are a possibility - with lower-level retail, an office building, a 120-room hotel and a 2,100-space garage. The core of the development site is a parking lot that sits just north of Quicken Loans Arena, east of Tower City Center and steps from East Fourth Street.

If the project gets off the ground this year, nuCLEus might open in 2019.

Cleveland mayoral candidates on whether to divert tax dollars for downtown project



Quote:
Whoever wins the Cleveland mayoral election likely will face the hot-button decision of whether to divert tax dollars that would otherwise support the city's schools to help finance a downtown construction project. The deal involves nuCLEus, a 54-story building proposed for property near Quicken Loans Arena. Developers want to tap future tax dollars on the building - including millions that would go to city schools - as part of the financing for the project.
Any tax deal would have to go through Cleveland City Council and win approval of the mayor. And while developers have said the tax incentives are critical for the $540-million project, nothing has reached City Council yet.
