^You sure that's a rendering?  The dorm portion of Phase II opened with CIA in August.

Yeah, I feel as though that particular pic is a rendering.

You may be right; it looks like a rendering, although photogs do a lot of funky things digitally with photos nowadays so it's often not easy to tell what's real and what's not... I do know, though, that the CIA kids have already moved into the Phase II dorms ... which led me to believe the photo is real... but maybe it's not.

That is exactly what that is, a photograph that has been redone.

Uptown has received an 2014 TOD Best Practices score from The Institute for Transportation and Development Policy. Now, I just learned about them 5 minutes ago and from what I can tell they are a lobbying group for BRT. But it puts Uptown on the map regarding TOD.

Another phase? Horrible rendering artistry-wise, but great to see the street presence coming to this corner of the intersection...

Hmmmm, I was at the CPC meeting last year when Russell Berusch presented his plans for plans for that corner.  It was much more inspiring than that rendering - a tower matching the height of 115 Euclid.  But then I heard Case had an option on the property and they had their own idea of what should go there - never found out what that was.

That's pretty ridiculous that they are only proposing retail. All the major players are separately stating that the area needs more residents and that the retail is not thriving due to the lack of residential on Euclid.

Unless they are putting their money where their mouth is, it's just talk. 

It's one thing for random people to say "somebody ought to....",but when investors do,they should include the word "else" in there.

Which means it wouldn't be very profitable.

^ Considering the rate of Uptown's rents, and the continued growth of CWRU, I don't see any reason why apartments on that site wouldn't be profitable.

I hear you, but I don't see why none of the major players aren't proposing them themselves if that's the case.

My guess is they'd have to do structured parking, elevators, and more expensive mid/high rise style structural work to make apartments work in a small site like that.  All of which makes for very high rents.  Unless they make a very tall building, they won't make much money for all the trouble and expense.

Not sure how much of the overall cost they would account for, but since they show a second level in the rendering, doesn't it seem like they're already putting in elevators?

Even a five story apt building would be better and you don't need an elevator for 5-6 stories.

In this era of ADA, I suspect you might.

^That's really prohibitive for builders.  What does the code say, it is by stories or number of units per floor? How about for hotels or office bldgs? Also is this ADA or City of Cleveland code?

I'm also curious what code this is codified in.  I've seen quite a few new-build 4-5 story walk-ups in Chicago recently.

Pretty sure the ADA doesn't apply to purely residential construction. Any requirement in an apartment building would be from state or local codes.

yes the ada does not apply, but the fair housing act does:

The Fair Housing Act, as amended in 1988, prohibits housing discrimination on the basis of race, color, religion, sex, disability, familial status, and national origin. Its coverage includes private housing, housing that receives Federal financial assistance, and State and local government housing. It is unlawful to discriminate in any aspect of selling or renting housing or to deny a dwelling to a buyer or renter because of the disability of that individual, an individual associated with the buyer or renter, or an individual who intends to live in the residence. Other covered activities include, for example, financing, zoning practices, new construction design, and advertising.

The Fair Housing Act requires owners of housing facilities to make reasonable exceptions in their policies and operations to afford people with disabilities equal housing opportunities. For example, a landlord with a "no pets" policy may be required to grant an exception to this rule and allow an individual who is blind to keep a guide dog in the residence. The Fair Housing Act also requires landlords to allow tenants with disabilities to make reasonable access-related modifications to their private living space, as well as to common use spaces. (The landlord is not required to pay for the changes.) The Act further requires that new multifamily housing with four or more units be designed and built to allow access for persons with disabilities. This includes accessible common use areas, doors that are wide enough for wheelchairs, kitchens and bathrooms that allow a person using a wheelchair to maneuver, and other adaptable features within the units.

^Yeah, good point. 

No doubt the developer here has his reasons and his architects/builders know the law, so we should probably just wait to see an actual proposal come before design review before we fret too much.
