I have a friend slated to move into the Shoreway building.  They are giving new residents staggered times throughout this coming weekend of when they can move in and they are providing some movers to help everyone.
I looked at several units about a month ago and he promised they would be ready by August 1. I didn't know how they'd make it because there was so much work to be done still. I'll never cease to be amazed how fast these guys can work. The windows in this building are incredible.

If this is the 1898 station, it's where my great great grandfather may have immigrated to Cleveland in 1901. At the time, you could buy a combined B&O/Atlantic crossing ticket in Hamburg. You came in through Fell's Point Baltimore and immediately got on a train.

I think what the study is showing is how happy the students actually are with what the apartments provide.  They could care less how it looks on the outside.  The older we get, the more we criticize how architecture looks.  An 18-22 year old kid won't really give a crap.

I did give a crap at that age, I loved Cincinnati (coming down from South of Dayton) from when I was a kid for its unique architecture, and while in college I literally was seeing the city destroy that for really really piss poor designed student housing, it was heartbreaking.  I also thought that kind of mass destruction ended in the 1960s and was blown away that the city didn't have a Historical Society that was up in arms about it!

I understand why the housing is rated well though, most people going to school are suburbanites from SW Ohio with little appreciation of historic architecture - and frankly the new housing is better than a lot of the slumlords in terms of basic maintenance.

My understanding is that this substation is only for the southern (CBD) loop. Where will the northern loop substation be located? I hope they can put it in the maintenance building on Race/Henry.

there will be one under FWW; one in the Findlay Lot and another in the MOF

Findlay, Court, and 2nd St stations are all parallel fed to the same DC circuit...  MOF is seperate.

P.J.'s Luncheonette is probably the best cheap place to go for breakfast that is in the heart of downtown and doesn't require driving or a long walk

In the Buffyverse, there is a hell mouth in Cleveland

We should keep an eye on this construction to make sure no other demons escape.
I'm not sure anyone on this board would pay much attention otherwise.

Just read the article (if you could call it that)...very lame....just a bunch of ill informed babble to accompany pictures.

cleveland.com has the absolute worst slideshow layout I've ever seen.
