I'm surprised to see Downtown Cleveland still retain a good chunk of old buildings. There seems to be blocks and blocks of them. That really caught me by surprise, downtown looks great. I'd say it does a better job at that than Cincinnati, without a doubt. This is definitely the best Cleveland thread out there, that I've seen at least. If you have anymore, please post away!

University Circle, May 24th, 2010. Part One

University Circle is the cultural, educational, and medical center of Greater Cleveland, and is located on the east side of Cleveland, Ohio. University Circle occupies approximately 550 acres (2.2 kmē) around the campus of Case Western Reserve University and the adjacent Wade Park Oval. It borders Cleveland's Little Italy, home to many private art galleries and restaurants, as well as the neighborhoods of Hough, Glenville, Buckeye-Shaker, and Fairfax (also known as Midtown).

University Circle is a major source of employment in the Cleveland area, currently providing more than 30,000 jobs in a variety of fields. Over 13,000 undergraduate, graduate, and professional students attend area institutions, and approximately 2.5 million people visit the Circle each year. University Circle Incorporated, a not-for-profit corporation established in 1957, fulfills many administrative and quasi-governmental functions for the area, including security, transportation administration, and marketing. Nearly 50 cultural, medical, educational, religious, and social service institutions are based in the University Circle area, the largest of which is Case Western Reserve University.


Institutions

University Circle houses a large number of allied and independent institutions, most of which are members of University Circle Incorporated. The Cleveland Museum of Art, a world-renowned art museum situated in front of Wade Lagoon, is currently undertaking a massive expansion project that will more than double its exhibit space. The Cleveland Museum of Natural History is located in the Circle as well. Severance Hall is home to the Cleveland Orchestra, one of the United States' Big Five orchestras. The Cleveland Botanical Garden includes a greenhouse offering two ecosystems: Madagascar desert and Costa Rica cloud forest. The Cleveland Institute of Art, Cleveland Cinematheque, and Sculpture Center are located in the Circle. Case Medical Center is one of the nation's premier cancer hospitals and is closely affiliated with Case Western Reserve University. The Louis Stokes Veteran's Administration Medical Center is another medical institution in the area. The Ohio College of Podiatric Medicine is currently located in the Circle, but will soon move to suburban Independence. The Cleveland Institute of Music and the Cleveland Music School Settlement are also located here. The Circle is home to a variety of smaller museums as well, such as The Western Reserve Historical Society and Crawford Auto-Aviation Museum, the Children's Museum of Cleveland and the Dittrick Museum of Medical History.

Located nearby are a number of other museums, places of worship, and specialty health care facilities, including the Cleveland Clinic and the Cleveland Play House.

Transportation

The Circle area is served by public transportation, including a stop on the RTA's Red Line. The CircleLink shuttle service (colloquially known as the "Greenie") provides free public transportation within University Circle. On October 24, 2008, the RTA HealthLine began operation, introducing bus rapid transit along Euclid Avenue from Public Square to Louis Stokes Station at Windermere in East Cleveland. University Circle is a major destination on the line, and Euclid Avenue was rebuilt during construction, with the installation of public art, new lighting, and sidewalks along the entire length of the HealthLine.

Uptown project

In the spring of 2006, Charter One Bank announced its $150,000,000 "UPtown Initiative". The UPtown Initiative will earmark $100 million in funding for economic development, including financing for the large amount of research, medicine, and technology industries in the area. This funding will be used to create jobs and spur further investment in the circle and areas around it. The other $50 million in funds will be used to upgrade, renovate, and build new housing in the Circle and surrounding neighborhoods. Portions of the funding are earmarked for local retail and other amenities of a successful urban district.

In addition to this investment, Case Western Reserve University, Zaremba Homes, and MRN Ltd have announced a partnernship to develop a new urban "uptown" district within University Circle, to be centered on the "triangle" at the corner of Euclid, Ford, and Mayfield. Anchored by the Museum of Contemporary Art Cleveland, which will be moving to the area as part of the project, the university envisions a $120 million development that will include restaurants, bars, entertainment venues, fashion and specialty clothing stores, general retail, and over 400 units of housing and office space. The current apartment towers of the Triangle development will remain. It will also be the new home of the university's bookstore.

Future plans

There are a large number of future plans for producing growth in the University Circle area. Case Western Reserve University is involved with a large amount of planning in the area, including the creation of a large medical and technological research center, known as the "West Quad", which is to be built on the campus of the former Mt. Sinai Hospital. Future plans for the area include large apartment and condominium towers, and other housing for residents, with projections of 20,000 people living within the University Circle area.

Cleveland Cultural Gardens. Part One.

Chinese Cultural Garden.




The Chinese Cultural Garden (some visible on the far left) and Temple Tifereth Israel. Built in 1923 and designed by Boston architect Charles Greco. It served as the main temple until the opening of yje Pepper Pike branch in 1969. I did a paper for on it for one of my urban classes at CSU. Very interesting building!





























More to come tomorrow!

gorgeous. i love Cleveland. Well, too many photos on the first page!! Anyway, I too was wondering.. is there ever many people walking around in the city? Why don't they seem to? Is it dangerous?? What's the deal?

So, I see those cafes downtown.. so there must be people ON the street to get to that cafe but I don't see them! How do those businesses manage? Do people cycle?

(Again, too many freakin pics... 4 or 5 almost exactly the SAME pics of the fountain!)

I'm glad you liked it. But I'm a bit confused. This is photo thread so yeah, you're gonna have LOTS of photos!

Unfortunately, Downtown Cleveland is not the most active or viberant. Generally, you see people on East 9th, along Superior and along Euclid between Playhouse Square and I-90. Also, it depends on the day and the time of day. You wont see alot of people in downtown on a Sunday afternoon around 3:00 p.m. But if you were there at say 10:00 a.m. on Monday, it would be a different story. Especially on Euclid Avenue. But slowly things are getting better Euclid as they add more residents and businesses. Like most Ohio cities, the flight to the burbs has really hurt Cleveland, along with the lose of manufacturing jobs.

Okay, I think you made your point the first time. And no, those are not the same photo, they are different angles. It's such a work of art, I wanted to get as many prospetives as possible. Again, it's a photo thread so you're going to have LOTS of pics from many different angles.
