Good feedback from the downtown design review committee. I wish we had a committee like this in Minneapolis. The Minneapolis Planning Commission can be a little meek at times when it comes to reviewing a project's aesthetics and how it will co-exist with the urban fabric in real time.

Here's a rendering from the City Planning Commission meeting of today. It's the first Cleveland undertaking for Columbus-based Avenue Partners.

East 4th Street planning to have an anniversary celebration. It's hard to have much of a party, though; they're too busy with regular business. Initial plans for closing E4th were
announced 20 years ago and today it's hard to imagine there ever was a "before" time.

If the Starks ever get around to building the southern extension (NuCLEus), it will be half again longer.

Metro General has bought another "neighborhood" delelict apartment reaching five blocks west to W30th Street. They are really taking a neighborhood approach to their Clark-Fulton/Villa Hispaņa buff-up campaign,
using the model of St. Ignatius High School, which, after nixing a move to the suburbs, was an early supporter of Ohio City's rebirth through property purchases and rehabs.

The property was built in 1890 and has been vacant for a while. Metro has no immediate plans for rehab; but it's on their to-do list.

You can see one of Metro General's about-to-be-replaced cylindrical towers in the background.

^ Pure opinion: It's disappointing that Metro General apparently plans to tear down this W30th Street apartment fairly soon without any plans to replace it "fairly soon". It's not really an eyesore, just vacant; and the vacancy is a recent thing. It was occupied as of last summer.

It may be that hidden defects prevent an economical rehab, but it's really not a bad looking building without signs of vandalism.

Here's a January 10th screenshot from the City of Cleveland's website of building permits filed in Cleveland for the past 30 days. They aren't all for large projects, but include all construction or repair
requiring a permit. With just a couple of holes, these were spread throughout the city, not just in a few hot spots. It shows the breadth and depth of city's economic revival.

For comparison purposes, during the very bad years (1970-1988ish) there was a year (1976, noted by another site but unverified by me) when a total of NINE permits were filed all year.

Times change:

Hitachi Healthcare will build a new R&D center in suburban Twinsburg colocated with its North American headquarters. This will add 40 people to the 200 people they already employ in the area.

This is a fantastic image that clearly symbolizes the city's renaissance. And its not just localized in a few areas as you mention. It's happening in virtually all parts of the city!

The Beacon apartment says: We're done.

A nice nighttime shot featuring their new marquee:

Chris Ronayne, head of the University Circle Foundation being a tease, with this tweet about things to come in what's being called UC3. Typically, Chris doesn't tease much in advance of real news.



"Taming the beast of Chester" around the intersection of E107th St and Chester Ave:

The final lighting plan for the May Company building goes before the Landmarks Commission this week. Looks good to me.

The Port of Cleveland reported general cargo for 2019 was up 9%, despite a 25% drop in European cargo. The new cargo is coming from Canada and the drop in Europe is said to be tariff-related.

The new bulk terminal has been expanded to handle multiple ships and products simultaneously. Principal cardo is of course iron ore but salt expports are big and growing.

Bulk freighter being loaded at Whisky Island:

The 11-story Baker Building, its latest name, sits on E6th Street between the recently completed Beacon Apartment which faces Euclid Ave. and the Leader Building which faces Superior Ave. This roughly 100 year old building was bought in 2011 for about $450K. Various proposals were set forth but nothing happened. The owner recently sold it for about an 800% profit to some Denver folks who want to stay in the background. Maybe we'll see some new plans.

It's called Fidelity Mortgage Bldg. here:

Ogletree Deakins, an Atlanta-based 900 lawyer law firm, has moved its eastern regional management from Indianapolis to Cleveland. This is a semi-plum for the city, I guess.
The action seems to be personality-driven; the new manager lives in Cleveland; the old one lived in Indiana.

The city invites everybody to the opening of the Glenville/Circle North development and gets a big turnout. The result seems to be popular with everyone, in addition to inspiring a bunch of new projects
in the immediate area, some of which have been shown upthread.

Mixed income apartments plus a seven-business incubator:

MOCA, the Museum of Contemporary Art, opens a new exhibit. There is no permanent collection, it's all temporary and much of it is 'installation' art. Always interesting and, while not free, nicely priced.
Plus, I really love the building - it never seems to look the same twice.

After a couple of design iterations, it appears The Lincoln in Tremont will actually get built. 82-units, it looks like more, will be built at the intersection of Scranton Road and Willey Avenue.
Tremont is pushing onto Scranton Peninsula faster than the Peninsula-end developers are getting their part done.

The design phase, hoping for a summer start:


The same group (Sustainable Community Associates) is wrapping up the Tappan Apartment also in Tremont.

Tappan Apartment and Bakery, slated for June completion:

Kind of surprised at upper-middle class Bay Village home prices declining, however I suspect the decrease was small there as well.

One surprise in my mind. That small green segment in Cleveland. Is that Tremont? I might be wrong , but it appears to be south of that neighborhood.
The small green section is, I believe, Brooklyn, which is an independent suburb.
