This was a great post for April Fools Day. The Progressive proposal has been dead since the board of directors vetoed it back when Al Lerner was chairman of the board - that info comes directly from Peter B. Lewis' people. And the only proposal from the Jacobs Group was for a 21-story office tower but that's been dead for quite some time.

Im very excited for Flats East. That is a game changer for the entire East bank. I regularly jog down there and dream about the amazing lofts that could be made inside those buildings on Old River Rd. If I had a million dollars...Yes Im referencing the Barenaked Ladies song.

Not exactly in Cleveland, but some good news from the little sister of the CSA here. Plus its all happening a few blocks over from my house and i think people need to know about it all

Bridgestone unveils $100 million tech center as Akron celebrates investments by the tire industry
By Robert Schoenberger, The Plain Dealer 4-11-12

Quote:
AKRON, Ohio -- Unless you drive a racecar, your tires weren't made in Akron. But Rubber City still houses the heart of the U.S. tire business. The city on Wednesday celebrated that heritage with the grand opening of Japanese tire company Bridgestone Americas' $100 million, 450-worker tech center. Community leaders and the company have been working on the project for more than four years.



While workers there celebrated, construction crews across town worked on the Goodyear Tire & Rubber Co.'s new headquarters that's scheduled to open next year.Between the two projects, tire companies, real estate developers and government agencies have announced more than $1 billion in investments in Akron - all centered around keeping high-tech research and development jobs in the city.

Stuart Lichter's Industrial Realty Group is handling that $900 million project. IRG plans to redevelop Goodyear's existing buildings into new office in retail space after the tire company moves into its new building.

You know what, I seem to remember that whole area being a big construction site when I was little. It was DEFINITELY shovel ready!! Aaaugh!!
Hey! Clevelanders are happy about the under construction 18 story Ernst Young tower:



The Mellon Client Center in Pittsburgh is pretty comparable. 14 stories, 750,000 sq ft and you can drive right through the middle of it so it doesn't mess up the street grid. Not bad.

The FEB tower is definitely exciting, and it's shaping up to be much more visually impactful than I had originally thought it would be. It's especially impressive when you're traveling down the shoreway.

Honestly, I'm much more excited about phase two. Office towers are nice, but what Cleveland really needs to make its comeback more substantial is an influx of residential to help transform downtown into more of a 24 hour neighborhood.

was on a plane yesterday coming in to land at hopkins. we passed right over downtown. it was SO cool getting to see all the projects from the air, and being able to pick out the different construction sites. FEB is really coming along, and seeing such a nice new office tower rising over the city is great! i only wish my phone didnt freeze up and i could have taken some pictures. they would have been awesome

The lakefront plan has already started becoming a reality!

Cleveland envisions a floating office park to lure the creative class
Robert L. Smith, The Plain Dealer 4-25-12

Quote:
CLEVELAND, Ohio -- Jon Stahl, a flip-flop-wearing CEO, stood on the deck of his future office on a recent afternoon and drank in a boater's view of downtown Cleveland.
Waves lapped at a shoreline that rose toward office towers gleaming in the sunshine. A brisk wind snapped the flags heralding the nearby Coast Guard Station. A sailboat coasted toward the breakwall and the big blue lake beyond.
"Being on the water. In a boat. Downtown. We love it," said Stahl, co-founder of a young and growing software company called LeanDog.
One deck below him, construction workers were tearing out the guts of the former Hornblower's restaurant to turn a 19th century steamship into bright, open offices for computer programmers. The $600,000 project will create the headquarters of LeanDog and its collaborator, Arras Keathley, a marketing firm moving two dozen jobs up from Akron.

The three-year-old company, which develops software and smart phone applications for businesses, saw sales more than double last year to $5.3 million, sparking a hiring tear.
While the flagship is being renovated, 55 LeanDog staffers work out of the Burke airport terminal next door, in offices that include a climbing wall. The company has 25 openings -- mostly for software developers and engineers -- and it's on track to employ 100 people next year.
Not bad for a start-up that aspired to a staff of 20.
"We're booming," Stahl said matter of factly, adding that about 80 percent of his customers come from outside the region. "Now we want to make a bigger presence here in Cleveland."

Great fourm...

I'm a native Clevelander in exile in the DC area, and I've become a sort of champion for C-town over the last six years. Pictures of downtown on my exam room walls bring surprise from clients... usually asking "is that Baltimore?" Then after saying "no, it's Cleveland" they typically reply "Oh, I didn't realize it was that big" or "Oh, how unfortunate!"

Juxtaposing Cleveland to they type of city that we'd love to see it become (DC, Baltimore, Boston, or 'jewel south' types like Atlanta, Charlotte) I think what are missing are a) downtown population and b) hotel space.

The idea of high quality down town living has somehow missed Ohio for years... Baltimore is a similarly sized city, but it's downtown is much more vibrant because it is populated. And the waterfront is highly developed with high rise condos and hotels.

The lakefront is a HUGE asset... and it's sad that in Cleveland it is so under-utilized.

Any way... great thread... thanks for the project run down... it's always nice to know what to look for next time I'm in town!
Can't wait to see what develops around the flats east bank project... hope it doesn't stall like the Avenue District did!

Cheers... go Browns!
mike

Two great stories here from the PD

I find all the crying suburbanites in the comments section pretty hilarious, especially all their complaints about the mayor's push to focus on PEOPLE and not cars.

Downtown Cleveland parking tightens up due to casino, other projects, but experts see no shortage
Michelle Jarboe McFee, The Plain Dealer 4-28-12

Quote:
CLEVELAND, Ohio -- To an urban casino, a new convention center and other Cleveland projects, add one more downtown development: It won't be as easy, or affordable, to find parking next door to your destination.
In a downtown replete with parking -- 56,000 or so spaces -- major operators aren't predicting a shortage.
Still, new attractions, more housing and a few additional office tenants promise to boost occupancy at parking facilities. Higher demand, plus the glitz of a new casino on Public Square, already are pushing rates up in some parts of a downtown that has grown comfortable with cheap parking.
Craig Purnell pays $3.25 a day to park next to the Cleveland Grays Armory, a short walk from his office on East Ninth Street.
With AmTrust Financial Services Inc., a New York-based insurer, moving 1,000 jobs to the district and several apartment projects planned, Purnell worries that parking will become harder to find, and pricier.
"I really think that parking is going to become more of a premium in the months to come, over the next year or so," said Purnell, who commutes from Akron to work as a database administrator for the Baker Hostetler law firm. "In the past six to eight months, I've really seen a lot more traffic and a lot more people than I have in the past."

And this one here is just all around awesome news

Cleveland's inner city is growing faster than its suburbs as young adults flock downtown
Robert L. Smith, The Plain Dealer 4-27-12

Quote:
CLEVELAND, Ohio -- When a new job brought Stacey Brown to Cleveland from San Francisco two months ago, she went looking for an apartment downtown. Her manager told her that's where young people were flocking. Sure enough, she found a full house.
"It was soooo hard finding an apartment," said Brown, an upbeat and single 26 year old. "I mean I looked for three weeks, all over downtown."
Thanks largely to young professionals, the inner city is growing faster than the outer city and the county for the first time in modern history, a recent Case Western Reserve University study found.
Neighborhood life is blossoming on blocks once dominated by office workers and commuters, and people are clamoring for dog parks.
Richey Piiparinen, a researcher for Case's Center on Urban Poverty and Community Development, sees a more powerful force than a casino or a medical mart.
"It's a youth movement," he said. "This could be a huge thing."
Not to say anyone will mistake downtown Cleveland for Chicago. Even after two decades of unprecedented growth, the population within walking distance of Public Square approaches only 10,000 people (compared to 29,000 in Chicago's Loop). Many urban planners see 20,000 to 25,000 residents the threshold for creating a natural, self-sustaining downtown neighborhood, one that attracts grocery stores and schools.
