Why is the Lakeview Terrace an attractive residential site? The old river channel is some old, ugly industrial/water filtration scenery. And even if it wasn't, how does CMHA justify demolishing and selling this large public housing site for market rate homes? I can see something more like Tremont Pointe (mixed income housing) going here. But the public housing complex that preceded Tremont Pointe was a humanitarian disgrace.

I remember that as a kid, @KJP. Leaving church at St. John Cantius, hopping on the highway and seeing what appeared to be an entirely different world.

Also, the windows on Quarter look incredible. I really like what I am seeing thus far.

Ah, thanks. I get why the one building is called Church, since Church Street is just south of Detroit Avenue. But why is the other, smaller building dubbed "State"?

It is a play on the phase "A separation of church and state." That is what the path between the two buildings is being referred to as.

Which is what I was attempting to humorize upthread to cover my ignorance about what project this was. Ok, so I was close! :)

Another apartment development in Ohio City, this one at Lorain and W. 41st. I like the somewhat-classic design and think it'll fit in well on the street. Though if this goes anything like the proposed apartments at W. 44th, they'll come back a month from now looking like this mess.

I love that "mess"! It's more of the modern architecture Cleveland needs.  Lots of buildings with similar designs going up here in LA and, by and large, they look great.

Any of you guys see the architectural renderings in one of the storefronts by Platform Brewing? They are nothing official, but I really dig the design. I'll try and find a pic of them somewhere.....

Love the Snavely remodel plans - especially the solar panel covered parking. If we have to have parking lots, that's the way they should be done. Not a fan of the colored accent lighting though. I feel like that is getting overdone now in the city. It seems like every historic building now either has or is getting the same lighting. Even the top of the standard building now has it. The special-ness has been taken away and has now become ordinary.

This section of Detroit Avenue is popping. This brick building (Schaefer Printing) is coming along in its apartment conversion. The vacant lot in the foreground (with the horse trailer) is the proposed site of  the Church and State apartment buildings.



Getting some decent density along this stretch of Detroit Avenue between West 25th-28th...

^ I'm pretty sure the Schaefer building finished up the conversion awhile ago. I remember walking by Labor Day night and you could tell people were already living there.

Montlack said his father, Malcolm Montlack, had advocated for property in Ohio City for years because he felt the market there was improving.

I don't know, it really isn't that large of a building.  I didn't see a total sf in the article.

Based on this page about the Heyse Building (Mark Fremont Architects), it looks like the building is a little over 24,000 square feet total. I'm not sure if the posted plans on that site are still accurate (or if this architect is, in fact, working on the project), but it does outline 31 units.

That building is a block away from me. I find it so beautiful. Additionally, it looks like there are some sizable terraces on the top floors. I believe they'd have close to an unimpeded view of the skyline.

$208/sq ft.  How does that compare to recent historic renovations?
