While I love the stadium village idea, and the importance of the Fairgrounds staying put and being improved/renovated, the arguments for the stadium to come downtown are still more persuasive to me–especially the long-term viability piece.
These next 5 years will see so many changes in our city, and I suspect this will be another one. The considerable chunk of land along 71 where the stadium and historical center and fairgrounds sit are ripe for refreshing and redesigning for more efficient and effective use. If there is room for a soccer stadium downtown, a “stadium village” may work there as well. It’s not dissimilar, broadly, from what the Arena District was intended to be and has largely become.
We have come a long way and have a long way to go.
We have to keep growing smartly, and avoid the problems that come with growth that outpaces thoughtful planning.
I think there’s still a lot of room for growth along 4th, along Main, and I assure you, pressure will keep building for the Greyhound station to either rebuild or relocate.
The Biz First article has been updated; Nationwide is not the buyer.
Another large (2.9 acre), well-located parcel has been purchased in Franklinton, but the buyer is presently unknown.
Khaleesi/Daenerys is eventually just going to march a massive horde onto Westeros and push the white walkers back to the wall and crush all the petty, warring factions. That scene also made me wonder if we’re going to see a scene where John Snow walks out of fire.
Fire and Ice and all that eh?
Donald Trump is a calamity in waiting.
His lack of policy awareness–nevermind experience, which could be compensated for with thoughtful demonstration of critical thinking skills or reasonable decisionmaking ability–is bad enough. It’s his forthright demonstration of a willingness to target women and children in the war on terror, ban Muslims from entering the U.S., demonize Mexicans, and subjugate women, all in defiance of decorum and/or law, that makes him an immediate threat to our nation.
Secretary Clinton has flaws. Many. Her flaws are, at least, conventional, as were the flaws of many (but not all) of the GOP nominees that Donald Trump outmaneuvered during the campaign.
Of all the buildings that have changed dramatically–at least, superficially–that ain’t the one to highlight.
Perhaps you’re right that it was built with cheaper materials, but I’m not sure that’s something an untrained eye–i.e., the vast majority of folks–could notice.
I feel like a green wall would work better than those video screens on the exterior. Those will be heavily dependent on the programming. If they’re abstract like in the renderings they could work, but they better commission some really solid video/design work for them in that case.
Hell, Spacejunk would be a great fit for that! ;)
They would. They do great work. :)
Just like the projects across from Highpoint, you can have a large portfolio of successes, but you mess up a large, visible, well praised project and your reputation, understandably so, is going to take a hit.
Won’t argue with that!
Isn’t Arshot the same developer that’s in charge of Cooper Stadium?
Yes. They are also responsible for many strong builds downtown.May 10, 2016 10:03 am at 10:03 am in reply to: Cleveland's beautiful, modern apartment proposal for downtown #1126078
Another big project announced in Downtown Cleveland:
The owner of the Nautica Entertainment Complex envisions a $405 million, residentially-driven development that could start in 2018 and take seven years to finish. The master plan calls for 664 apartments spread across four buildings, including a linked pair of tall towers set into a man-made lagoon leading into the Cuyahoga River.
Renderings also show an office building, a hotel, three parking garages and reconfigured streets.
Large portions of the development would replace parking lots near Windows on the River, but the renderings show that Jacobs also could demolish existing buildings along Main Avenue and Center Street, including the Apartments at Nautica and the Harbor Inn, often described as the city’s oldest continuously operating bar.
That’s really encouraging news. Excited to try it out.
