The building, slated to open in October, will sit behind the Walgreens drugstore about one-eighth mile west of the current location. The former Fairlawn Bowling Lanes will be razed after the first of the year to make room for the adoption center, said Georjette Thomas, director of organization advancement for the group.
I've never understood the entire concept of "traffic calming." These kinds of measures would have the exact opposite effect of "calming" me when I'm trying to get around.
Driving along Euclid is absolutely nightmarish; I've had one near-death experience (literally) with the Rapid and once almost got out of my car in the middle of the street and walked because of gridlock (true gridlock) at Euclid & 9th ... I was trying to get to the Fifth Third building, barely three blocks away, and it took me almost fifteen minutes. It should have taken two, tops.
Fair point. Next time, when I need to get to Cleveland, I'll just take the train ...... wait, whoops.
I think you'd need more colors for Tetris. Monochrome Tetris kind of defeats the point.I'd much rather see the Hoover factory still making sweepers, or anything involving taxpaying and job-creating commercial activity, but I guess this is better than the building standing vacant.
An awning outside the branch will have a ticker electronic display showing marketing messages and rates.''We think that'll get additional flair,'' Tulodzieski said.
Any word on what, if anything, might be moving into the old Key space at Bowery & Main?
I don't think there's anything particularly unusual about that. Many marquee tenants don't own their own office buildings; professional management companies do. I'm pretty sure the Advanced Elastomer Systems building just a couple of blocks to the south, for example, isn't owned by AES.
Too true. Though I think the larger problem is the empty space on the inside of the buildings, not the outside.I don't know the official figures, but just from walking around downtown at lunchtime and in the evenings, there are way too many "Space Available" signs up, including some on buildings that look to be in pretty good shape. In addition, many of the largest buildings don't put up such signs, so if any of the towers in the Cascade area
Havnt been on here in awhile..so heres my two cents..I like whats being down around lock 3.. The new Key building is nice.. Akron needs more steel and glass structures.. (could have been taller though) I would love to see the area around gojo and spaghetti warehouse built up a bit more.. Oh..and when are we going to see that new downtown hotel? I would love to see an art museum hotel like the one in louisville,ky..
The hotel should be officially announced in about 1-2 months.

Mostly though I had heard that hotels were reluctant to do anything without a commitment from the city to get more people downtown (meaning shows, expos, arena?)
