I find the best diversity of businesses, unfortunately, to be located in slightly dumpy strip malls in older suburbs. Can't stand the urban form of it, but in this era those are the buildings with the cheap rents and large enough supply to bring all kinds of interesting things.

Pearl Road in Parma Heights is a great example

Exactly. Or Mayfield Rd, which we even had a thread about a few years ago.

Cleveland's had similar in existing buildings - 5th Street Arcades recently, the Arcade (Hyatt) in its heyday but whatever it takes retail marketers to put a new spin on things. One thing I'd love to see go away is the use of the word "curated", outside of an art museum's collection.

5Th Street Arcades is a good space.  More of an 'enclosed side street' than typical indoor retail like a suburban mall.  Again, goes to types of businesses there; individually there are some cool and unique options, together they create the overall appeal.  I know what you mean with "curated."  I can't immediately think of a word to replace it that conveys the same thought.  "Chosen" or "Selected" doesn't do it.  Personally, there is the connotation of: (1) authority based on experience (aka expertise?), and (2)  creativity with "curator" that isn't there with other words. 

From a tenant standpoint, Van Aken is coming together:
http://www.shakeronline.com/assets/downloads/city-projects/vanakenontrackp.10.pdf

It says, "...James Beard Award-winning chef Jonathon Sawyer will partner with them as a tenant and curator of food experiences in the Van Aken District." (emphasis added).  And further down, "Sawyer and RMS are finalizing negotiations with a thoughtfully assembled tenant roster that will complement already-named tenants such as Shinola Detroit, Mitchellís Ice Cream, Rising Star Coffee Roasters, Restore Cold Pressed, and Luna Crepes, as well as Sawyerís restaurant." (emphasis added). 

Two things: (1) RMS is smart to work with him, and his curatorial role (prefer "thoughtful assembler?!") is a good idea.  Thought and planning are important yet often overlooked.
(2)  RMS has some good tenants so far.  Not all local, although there are quite a few, but the mix looks thoughtful and, dare I say, curated?  Hope it continues, good for them.

^ lol nice finds -- curated bugs me too, but on the positive side it does get the point across and it is certainly a buzzword for millenials.

Took a walk around downtown to enjoy this pleasant afternoon and noticed that the old Metro furniture store in the 1717 building is occupied again. At first glance it looks like another furniture store, but reading the window decals it seems to be some kind of furniture rental place. Not like a rent-a-center, but somewhere you rent, frankly over the top, furnishings for one-off events like a big party. The space seems to be more of a showroom, than an actual retail store.

Corner Alley Uptown to close in late May; owner says bowling alley isn't profitable


CLEVELAND, Ohio -- The developer behind the Uptown project in University Circle plans to close the Corner Alley, a major retail anchor in the district.

MRN, Ltd., the family-owned real estate company that also owns and manages the Corner Alley, said the business started off strong in late 2014 but simply isn't profitable. Bowlers will knock down their final pins at Uptown in late May.

The Corner Alley downtown, a smaller venue on East Fourth Street, will stay open.

Large-scale retail has been a bit of a challenge at Uptown, a development at Euclid Avenue, Ford Drive and Mayfield Road, since the first wave of apartments, stores and eateries opened in 2012.

Interesting -- especially in light of the proposed development behind (east) this building.

There is one Tweet from this week saying rumor is they are closing. That's all I could find online.  A shame for the area

At the same time, the downtown Chagrin Falls location is currently closed - but being gutted and expanded out and up with new modern diner look and bar (like downtown CLE).

The Plain Dealer, unfortunately, is no longer a very reliable source these days. They've cut too many writers and editors, I find it painful to read, as I find a factual error or grammar error in just about every single article.

Interesting what's going on at Beachwood. First their planned expansion was halted. A couple of big named stores left (probably because of the national retail climate, or their individual chain-wide issues), now you have tenants like nail salons and barber shops opening up in prime spaces.

I wouldn't say Beachwood Place is declining. I would say right now they are treading water. While there have been national chain stores which have left or moved, there have been other ones which have moved in a opened in the last year or so - Alex & Ani, MAC, Altar'd State, Evereve, and Zara (first in Ohio). Others like Ann Taylor and Ticknors have remodeled and expanded. It's certainly doing better than most malls in the country and region. I think Beachwood Place's biggest issue, even more so than the perceived safety problem which is not unique here, is that retail on the east side is over stretched. With Pinecrest, there are now 4 upscale malls/lifestyle centers  in a 1.75 mile radius. Though a bit different, Van Aken will soon be joining them too. No matter Pinecrest's promises, these centers all essentially poach from and cannibalize each other.

I suspect indoor malls are on the way out in urban and denser suburban areas.   They can't control loitering gracefully.  If indeed retail is stretched (and I suspect that it is indeed), this puts them at a disadvantage.

Yeah, those teenagers sure are scary! The reasons why malls are going away everywhere are many and often stated. I don't deny that security is a real issue for some, but with the sprawling out of wealth, it makes it very difficult to support large concentrations of retail in less wealthy areas.

^ Someone was shot there recently in the middle of the day so it's fair to say there is a security problem. That was after a stampede of kids(who thought they heard gunshots)caused a lock down the day after Christmas. It was also after a fistfight between 2 girls in the food court made the rounds on social media.

As someone who lives near Beachwood Place and still shops there I believe security combined with increased competition is the reason for the mall''s struggles. Why deal with the safety issues when you have multiple alternatives nearby? Also going there after the shooting was like shopping in a prison. They had multiple armed sheriff deputies with bulletproof vests standing at each entrance. Not very inviting!
