Steve Barry Buick RIP. This site on Detroit Ave in Lakewood has been a car dealership since the 1920s.

I remember it as DeBarry Oldsmobile.

How old are you?? A friend of mine bought a Buick from Steve Barry in 1980, so that's going back a ways!!

Lakewood to purchase Hilliard Square Theater land for $10


https://www.cleveland.com/lakewood/index.ssf/2018/05/lakewood_to_purchase_hilliard.html

Another huge opportunity.  I wish the city could gain control of all the land going east up to the intersection.

One point of contention. I think calling the theatre "an eyesore" was a reach.

Lakewood Ohio's new residential boom times

Lakewood's primary commercial district, Detroit Avenue, is becoming a lot more residential. The changeover in land use is due in large part to a change in business preferences, resulting in opportunities to offer contemporary housing in a stable, walkable community. The last time the city had so much land available for development was before the Great Depression of the 1930s.

There are eight large properties along Detroit Avenue that were or are in play for redevelopment. Most developments are for new uses, primarily residential. They include:

1. Fairchild Chevrolet -- Forest City Enterprises/Ryan Homes & Knez Homes
2. Educator's Music (and Spitzer Chrysler-Jeep?) -- Liberty Development
3. McKinley School -- Liberty Development
4. Steve Barry Buick -- Unknown
5. Lakewood Center North office tower -- Lakewood Center North LLC
6. Lakewood Hospital -- Carnegie Management
7. Trinity Lutheran Church -- Unknown
8. Phantasy Cleveland -- Unknown

Nice work.  Although, is an apartment tower still in the works for the hospital site.  i thought they were looking at the mid-rise office.
