However, other prospects already are knocking on the door about land controlled by the trust, which traces its ownership of property back more than a century, including a corporate headquarters he refused to identify.

Amazon is looking to build a new HQ in another city. Does anyone else think that Scranton Peninsula would be a great spot for it? With their new amazon locker downtown and the new fulfillment center coming to North Randall I think this could be something that's actually possible! How do we go about making sure that Cleveland submits a good proposal for this?

For that many employees, Scranton Peninsula needs more infrastructure to improve access, such as restoration of the Eagle Avenue bridge, a rail line to downtown/airport and significant new sewers/waterlines.

^ I discussed in the other thread that the city could create a TIF district for public infrastructure improvements.  The increase in value from 8 million square feet of office should generate enough to improve the infrastructure.  Looking at a map SP is not far from the Red Line at W25th and directly across the river from Tower City.  Perhaps a spur loop off of the red line, or trolley buses could make the connection to W25th.  I think pedestrian bridges could connect to Tower City as well which provides access to all rail transit and parking.

I could be wrong, but those are the reasons we'll see SP develop in stages, rather than in one full swoop. There are positives for that approach, ie more time and flexibility for planning and reassessment.

Interesting ideas. So you're envisioning a much more mixed-use plan then?  I suppose I had this area at say 90 percent residential, probably based on some 20 year old proposal by FCE.

I was envisioning a mixed use development anchored by Amazon's 2nd HQ in which case i think we can build out a huge section of SP all at one and use a TIF to assist with rail, infrastructure and road construction.

I doubt there's enough room for Amazon, let alone other uses. We're talking about an HQ with a number of employees that's nearly double that of the Cleveland Clinic main campus.

According to the article from Crain's there's just about 45 acres down there although much of it is already taken up other buildings and tenants. 45 acres is just under 2M square feet, meaning 8 million sq ft of office would only be four floors of building... much too small for many of the posters on here  :-P

In all seriousness though, as a resident of Cleveland what can I do to ensure that someone from the city is submitting a proposal? Perhaps that is a discussion for another thread though.

As far as putting together a proposal, GCP and TeamNEO are the ones that need to be on top of this.  Amazon wants only one package from each MSA which can include multiple sites from multiple jurisdictions.  I don't care if this ends up in the burbs or Summit County. I'd love to see it NEO.  Anywhere else in Ohio is my second choice and Detroit is third. I'm a dreamer.

Great Lakes Brewing Co. is looking at Scranton Peninsula for possible expansion project (photos)

CLEVELAND, Ohio - Strapped for space at its longtime home in Ohio City, Great Lakes Brewing Co. is talking about building a second production facility a mile away, on long-barren Scranton Peninsula in the Flats.

The homegrown brewery hasn't made any decisions. During an interview, Bill Boor, the company's chief executive officer, said there's no guarantee Great Lakes will pull the trigger on an expansion - regardless of the site. But he confirmed that the company is "very interested" in Scranton Peninsula, where a recent land sale has opened up new development possibilities.
