4000+ posts and I have yet to contribute a single photo thread to this site. I’m not much of a photog, so I try to leave it to the pro’s. I never realized how much work goes into it, so many thanks to the members who consistently create these threads.
Anyways, this thread covers current and recent developments along Euclid Avenue through University Circle. I was originally planning to do a thread covering the Healthline’s impact on all of Euclid (including the Clinic, MidTown, CSU, and Downtown)… but there is so much to cover, my camera’s battery (and my availability) only made it a few hundred yards on what was supposed to be a few mile tour.
As planned, I’m going to start on the “eastern frontier” – Coltman 27 – which is encircled by Lakeview Cemetery, University Circle and Little Italy. The Cemetery offers a nice “buffer zone” to the East. The development is built to flow into the Little Italy neighborhood and has wonderful access to both the current (E 120) and future planned (Mayfield Rd.) RTA stations, not to mention the Healthline.
1. The view from Euclid
2. Rowhouses… Townhomes. Tom-ay-to…. Tom-ah-to
6. I believe this is the last set currently under construction
8. As I said, it flows nicely into the LI neighborhood
9. I believe we learned recently that the legal dispute over this land has been settled and development is planned. Of course, we will hear the usual moan from the PD and its commentators about how parking is already a nightmare in LI and this will only make it worse…
10. Say goodbye to Coltman as it peers out over the redline’s tracks onto Euclid and beyond…
11. Say hello to “the other side of the tracks” and Circle 118 (as seen from Euclid)
13. From E. 118th
15. Again… good job weaving it into the existing urban fabric
16. A bit pretentious?
17. There certainly is not a lack of transportation options right at your doorstep. Keep in mind that the redline uses the same ROW as the freight line you can see in this picture and the current E 120th station is right under that overpass (Coltman 27 is on the other side of that station).
18. Say goodbye to Circle 118 as we continue to inch west on Euclid
19. I really have to give CWRU credit for the way it has been developing its campus, with respect for the surrounding neighborhood
23. And it has a great, dense urban neighborhood to work with…
24. The Cleveland Institute of Art
25. Nothing is imminent, but talks continue regarding an expansion/renovation on this side of the building.
26. The recently completed Cleveland Hearing and Speech Center
27. Say what you want about the design, but it was “woven” nicely IMO
29. “Uptown” is chugging along at a nice pace
41. Don’t you just love seeing these in your City
43. I’d say we can call that “built to street”
44. Plenty of land left for “Phase 2”
46. Some shots of the future “Alley” – Uptown’s version of E. 4th
49. From the east…
50. Bye-bye Triangle building…. you won’t be missed
52. This corner is going to look very…. ummmmm…… “different” once MOCA is built
53. The back of the Triangle building getting torn down
55. Crossing over Mayfield/Ford, we come up on UH and all its recent and ongoing developments. First, of course, is the Ireland Cancer Hospital
56. A lot of people criticize this building, but count me as a fan
57. See the prism effect
58. See it with its sibling, the new parking garage
59. Not so much of a fan of the garage, but nothing worth throwing a fit over…
60. Who said it lacks “street presence”?
61. Seems like it will have multiple entrances
63. And it will help frame the new main entrance, which will front but not clog Euclid
65. Future site of a ‘bland’ Courtyard Marriot… but good infill nonetheless
66. Same lot… facing the new cancer hospital
67. Just some quick observations on the beautification efforts along Euclid which came along with the Corridor project
69. New ER entrance I think.
72. On the other side of Euclid…. CMA is looking niiiiiiice
74. Close-up on the atrium skylight
76. I like this
79. Not bad
80. I got “lost”…. The future site of the West Wing
82. While I am over here, I’m going to give a little love to a recent development which I feel doesn’t get enough attention. The beautifully renovated Park Lane Villa, seen here just beyond Judson Manor
83. Some other angles
87. Looking toward Wade Lagoon
88. Kind of a crappy shot, but you get the idea
89. Here’s the bottom line. There’s a lot happening on this little stretch of Euclid
