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.
Nice pictures - very impressive development.But, it should be called the rounded alley.
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.
^ 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.
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.
Even a five story apt building would be better and you don't need an elevator for 5-6 stories.

^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?
Pretty sure the ADA doesn't apply to purely residential construction. Any requirement in an apartment building would be from state or local codes.
Does anyone know when the Inchin Bamboo Garden restaurant is going to open?
