Great job of keeping us updated on what's going on in Toledo! Nice to see that it's got a fair amount of stuff going on.

Shouldn't this thread be stickied?

Toledo Hospital Development Update News

I went to take pictures of the most recent construction project of the Toledo Hospital Campus right before going to work on a fall morning and you can see this huge crane from all around the city. This crane is to construct the 8-story hospital:

Southwyck Mall Redevelopment News Update

Despite of the mayoral race--both the current mayor and candidate mayor they support the redevelopment of the Southwyck Mall which is located in the southwest corner of Toledo. This mall was a very popular 1970-80s mall before the onslaught of big box stores. Here is an article and some pictures of the redevelopment of Southwyck which will become an open-air mixed residential and commercial mall. This project is being done by Larry Dillin who opened an open-air mall called Town Center at Levis Commons in our southern suburb Perrysburg.

This is the current aerial shot of the Southwyck Mall:

Warehouse District Development No. 3

Here are some pictures around the Warehouse District that surrounds the Fifth Third Field (opened in 2002) where the Mud Hens baseball play and some news in regards to more developments. Warehouse District is the southern side of the downtown area and this coming winter I will be moving there as we purchased a new home at the River West Townhomes. We fell in love with the place with the view and amentities:

Berdan Building Pictures and Development Article:





Picture of the Huron Lofts which opened up few years ago--it's a block north of the Erie Street Market and Farmer's Market:


This building used to be an antique store which they moved to another building in downtown and this was rehab to house the expanded Paula Brown Shops which consists of kitchen supplies, bathroom/linen supplies, home accessories, clothing/shoes stores, salon, and art gallery. North of this building on the same block they have full occupancy of other existing stores so this shows downtown retail is doing good:


St. Clair Street Shops was rehabbed and renovated couple of years ago about the same time as the new ball stadium opened up. It now has restaurants, salons, ice cream store, grocery store, hardware store, coffeehouse, and offices. This is one block north of where is going to be my new home:



Swan Creek Candle just opened up this past spring and the famous Tony Packo's is opening a second full-service restaurant which is right across from the stadium by next spring before the 2006 baseball season starts. Tony Packo's has an original restaurant on the east side of the river--they have great Hungarian cuisine and ambience to their establishment:




Here is our new home as we move in later this year. Our home unit is the last of the second phase of this project and will be ready for us to move in by then. River West Townhomes is a multiple 4-floor townhomes with rooftop penthouse with full-deck selling in between $200-$275K each and there's about 50 units. Right now they sold over 70% of the units overall with first and second phase. The River West developers began construction for the first time in fall of 2002 whereas the first phase completed in spring of 2004 and the entire first phase of the units are now completely sold. This is located right in the heart of the Warehouse District which is in walking distance of the stadium, river, shops, restaurants, markets, and many other amenities. This place is so gorgeous as we toured the place first time around this past summer we knew we wanted to buy a place to call home:

wow! when i lived in toledo until about 7 months ago, there were holes through those bartley lofts (of course it wasnt the Bartley Lofts back then).

I never would think that they'd be livable.

The area still needs a face lift though.

Once the Marina District is completed, the new sports arena, and population influx into the downtown area--things will shape up with small businesses opening up, older buildings being rehabbed for mixed-zoning use, and new jobs will be created.

Not at this time--but I certainly would love to have a new tall building to be built in Toledo. Right now the city is focusing on new arena, population increase in downtown, high-tech jobs, developments along the river, and repairing/replacing costly infrastructures (bridges, major corridors, etc.). I'm sure once all these projects being underway something such as a tall building(s) will come into reality.

Update on the I-280 Bridge Project

^ I have this posted on the very first page of this thread down half-way and you can see that I re-posted it at the bottom of this post. I also posted new pictures from the construction webcam that shows the progress of the construction project.

Maumee River Crossing Bridge Pictures Update

Here are some pictures I took of the Maumee River Crossings bridge project on 11-12-2005:

These shots was just north of the downtown area on the west bank of the Maumee River:




This shot shows that I'm driving onto the old ramp going to the freeway/bridge which will show you the main pillar of the new bridge:


This shot shows you one of the many new bridges in part of this whole project and from where I shot is where I'm driving on the old bridge which you can tell how high the new bridge is:


I took this while driving southbound on the old bridge of I-280 which you can see the new bridge right above me:
