Tons of new pictures of the Q renovation on the CPC agenda this week -- interior, exterior, programming space, etc. Interested in how the bollards are installed? You're in luck.

On The Q Transformation site it states work is being done to the south side facing Progressive Field. Has anyone seen a rendering of that is planned?

Initial Phase of Construction on Quicken Loans Arena to Focus on Exterior of the Arena
CLEVELAND, OH - Construction on The Q Transformation, the renovation project to update and modernize the 23-year-old Quicken Loans Arena, will occur in mid-February with barriers to define the construction zones going up on February 5th. The initial phase of construction will focus on the exterior of the building and will impact the way fans enter and exit The Q for events, as well as vehicles traveling on Huron Rd. in the Gateway District.

Work will start on the north side of the arena along Huron Rd, and the south side of the arena facing Progressive Field. The north expansion will span from the corner of Ontario St. and Huron Rd. to the corner of Huron Rd. and E. 6th St. The expansion of the north side of the arena will add a 42,530-square foot atrium space along Huron Rd. that will be enclosed by a glass facade. The south expansion will add 6,350-square feet to the arena’s main concourse.

There are renderings on the City Planning Commission website: http://planning.city.cleveland.oh.us/designreview/drcagenda/2017/12152017/index.php

Thanks. I am underwhelmed by the south facade transformation.   Also the entrance locations on the north facade do not match up to any street crosswalks.

I just noticed that the renderings submitted to The City Planning Commission back in December had Gensler Rossetti as the architects.  What happened to SHoP Architects? They were the ones originally attached as the architectural team with Rossetti.

Just went down for a Monsters game and parked in the E. 6 garage right across. They basically have Huron closed down to a one way right in front of the arena. Before events, traffic goes north, but the afterwards traffic is routed south towards Ontario.

Correct, I'm guessing they were just the design architect. The design has not changed. Gensler is probably doing the Construction Documents. Rosetti is probably helping with the planning and is most likely the direct tie to Gilbert.

Actual work has started out in front of the Q.  They were digging the sidewalks and steps up this morning.

I hope a construction webcam is installed to watch the progress.
