In about two years, I'll have been an SSP forumer for 20 years and it's interesting to look back and see how our community (architecture/skyscraper/urban geeks) and our outlets to connect with each other have grown and evolved.
Not really.

Philadelphia has its own dedicated message board, Philadelphia Speaks, but it's kind of dead. A lot of urbanist discussion has moved to the UrbanPHL Facebook group. I'm not sure what-all Pittsburghers have. Or peeps from the many smaller cities in the state.

Not that I know of. The SSP development thread is the most interesting and informative Pittsburgh thread online for daily information. City-Data has a lot but I can't deal with the level of stupidity and ignorance on that site. I never joined. SSC never appealed to me.
I kind of oversee page 1 development like you do and assist with other forumers in trying to steer the conversation in a productive direction. I am about to create a new development thread with updated projects and info in the next few weeks since it is overdo.

Added quite a few updates, most notable is One University Circle is officially under construction with the base of the tower crane in place:


The Cleveland Clinic/CWRU Health Education campus is coming along nicely:


Added two sizable office buildings that are being redeveloped into residential use - the Standard Building (287 units) ...


... and the Garfield (123 units):


On the Proposed side, added the proposed project for the 22-acre site next to Nautica on the West Bank of the Flats. Pretty ambitious but who knows:


And the big updates for the Completed section are Public Square:


And the Hilton hotel and Drury Plaza:

Cleveland was ready for her closeup during the RNC, and looked great. All of the media coverage I saw portrayed the city in a positive light, usually with a 'comback kid' type of narrative.

Here's a link to the Cleveland.com story with some images. Not 100% sold on the exterior, but it probably is time to upgrade the Q a bit.

This is proposed for the area around West 28th and 29th near Detroit Avenue. Love the overall massing but reserving judgement on the facade for now.

From cleveland.com:

Ohio City apartment proposal would fill gap along Detroit Avenue



By Michelle Jarboe, The Plain Dealer
on February 27, 2017 at 8:33 AM, updated February 27, 2017 at 2:29 PM

CLEVELAND, Ohio - A pair of Ohio City parking lots is earmarked for a mixed-use project called the Church and State apartments, as part of a broader push to build up major corridors west of downtown Cleveland while preserving houses at the heart of the neighborhood.

Plans for the $50 million project show 161 apartments over 20,000 square feet of retail and 211 indoor parking spaces along Detroit Avenue, on roughly an acre between lower-slung, existing buildings at West 28th and West 29th streets. Named after historic and current Ohio City streets, the buildings will reach five floors - the Church, to the east - and rise to 11 stories - the State, to the west.

I'm a very big fan of Cleveland, as is my father who's an architect. I truly enjoy reading the updates when they are posted and look forward to seeing more in the future.

Your city is a fantastic comeback story!

At some point I'll try to update the main page but this was good news to hear. I've heard the Beacon tower has been pushed back to August for construction start.

Playhouse Square plans 34-story apartment tower in downtown Cleveland's theater district

CLEVELAND, Ohio - After years of behind-the-scenes planning, Playhouse Square Foundation is getting ready to stage its biggest real estate act: Building a 34-story apartment tower at the edge of downtown Cleveland's theater district.

The nonprofit organization will own the project, a $135 million investment comprised of a 319-unit rental building and an adjacent, 550-space parking garage at East 17th Street and Euclid Avenue. Hines, a global real estate firm, will serve as the development manager, shepherding the project without holding a stake in it.

Playhouse Square's decision to push forward on a long-held development dream comes during a rental renaissance for Cleveland, which is seeing proposals for new construction pick up as the supply of potential conversion projects - older buildings primed for residential makeovers - thins.
