Not everybody, actually only a few, want to renovate old houses. There is small population who do, mostly us on here, but being realistic, the average person does not.

Unless you can do what Northeast Shores is doing (and I think several CDCs, actually)  ... rehab the homes before you sell them. Or coordinate the rehab of a home with the specific build-out priorities of a particular buyer in mind. While I agree not many want to walk through the rehab themselves, surveying I've seen seems to suggest that there is still a ton of interest in historically renovated homes. I think one compelling strategy is to aggressively rehab properties while also seeking out opportunities for in-fill or parket parks on existing empty parcels. Industrial cities like Cleveland have no end of available space (there's 3,000 vacant ACRES of land within Cleveland proper), so I think it would be a real shame to be leveling houses when we don't need to (i.e. when they aren't structurally too far gone to rehab).

For instance, the former mayor of East Cleveland had been exploring leveling the four blocks of houses closest to University Circle for speculative new construction (Circle East). These are houses in pretty good shape selling often for less than $20,000. If houses are sitting vacant at that price point, I question the wisdom of trying to finance a large-scale new construction project in this lending environment; I just can't imagine you would accomplish much more than bulldozing several intact streets.

Interestng.  I think apartments might do very well on blocks near UC where houses aren't selling.  Buying an old house in East Cleveland, at any price point, is very different from renting a modern apartment there while interning at one of the nearby hospitals.  The lending envronment is what it is, but there are housing types for which we have immediate demand here.  I really believe that much of this city, around UC in particular, could be reinvigorated pretty quickly by adding marketable apartment stock.  And much of the land needed for that is currently occupied by distressed sf houses and doubles, if it's occupied at all.

I don't think many people know of the magnitude of these developments.  They go from about E66 to the E30's and about 2-3 block wide.  Here are a few pics:

^ It indeed is.  St. John's Village West Family Homes will be a forty-unit single-family lease-purchase project to be built along East 37th, 38th, and 39th Streets between Cedar and Central Avenues.  The homes will look almost identical to the 300  already built in the Villages of Central between 2000 and 2008. 

All of the funding is in place, and construction should begin around July 1.

Bicycle Ride in the Central & Kinsman Neighborhoods
Thursday, July 14 · 6:30pm - 8:00pm

St. John's Reading Garden
Meet at East 40th Street & Central Avenue
Cleveland, OH

Tour the Central and Kinsman neighborhoods of Cleveland by bicycle! Come see the good, the bad, and the ugly from someone who has worked intimately in both neighborhoods doing nonprofit community development for over seven years.

We'll depart promptly at 6:30pm for a two-wheeled sightseeing tour that explores recently completed developments, sites in which major projects are on the horizon, and areas that have been blighted and are decaying and seemingly abandoned.

The ride is free and open to all intermediate/advanced bicyclists.

Students use art to help attract new retailers in St. Clair Superior
Karin Connelly, Fresh Water
Thursday, July 21, 2011

Students from St. Martin dePorres High School in Cleveland are sprucing up their neighborhood. Thirty three students created 11 murals based on the cultural background and institutions in the St. Clair Superior neighborhood.

The murals were installed on Tuesday into vacant storefronts between East 60th and East 64th Streets as a way to liven up that section of St. Clair Avenue near the school, eliminating blight and creating interest in the corridor ...

$48k first step toward making buckeye cle's first green-certified retail district
Lee Chilcote, Fresh Water
Thursday, July 21, 2011

Over the past year, more than $48,000 has been invested in energy audits and "green" retrofits for merchants along Buckeye Road on Cleveland's East Side.

According to Deepa Vedavyas, Associate Director for Development at Buckeye Area Development Corporation (BADC), this is just the beginning. She hopes to see Buckeye Road merchants become the first "green-certified retail district" in Cleveland.

"We're using this as a learning opportunity, and encouraging them not to stop after the audit and retrofit," she says. "Energy-efficient businesses save on utility bills, which gives them an extra dollar to use towards marketing or expansion" ...

^ Sorry, haven't been too engaged on UO lately.

This is the intergenerational housing that Fairfax (for grandparents raising their grand kids) has been proposing for several years.  They found a partner in CMHA and the project is moving forward.  The office building is a community center. 

I have more east side developments that I'll post soon.  Things seem to be happening down here.

Here's the announcement on the former Tops site at Garrett Square, including a grocery store and an discount apparel store that's making it's Ohio debut at this site (is anyone familiar with this chain?):

Save-A-Lot to anchor Cleveland redevelopment
By jmosscrop


Cleveland -- CenterMark Development LLC announced that Save-A-Lot Food Stores, along with the Ohio debut of discount apparel retailer Forman Mills, will anchor The Shops at Garrett Square. The 65,000-sq.-ft. project is the first phase of a neighborhood revitalization plan envisioned by city officials seven years ago, and plans call for subsequent development of up to two more retail outlots targeting much‐needed retail uses.

CenterMark said it expects to complete its $1.3 million rehabilitation and turn over the retail spaces to tenants in December in order for them to tailor their interior improvements. Grand opening is expected in spring 2012.

“As a value‐minded neighborhood grocer, Save‐A‐Lot is pleased to be part of this neighborhood revitalization project by bringing a new grocery store and more than 20 new jobs to this community,” said Chon Tomlin, external communications manager for Save‐A‐Lot.

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

CMHA, Cuyahoga Land Bank, the City of Cleveland, and Cuyahoga County Break Ground on New Lee Road Senior Building

CLEVELAND, OH (November 10, 2011) – Cuyahoga Metropolitan Housing Authority (CMHA) will be joined by the Cuyahoga County Land Reutilization Corporation (Cuyahoga Land Bank), the City of Cleveland, and Cuyahoga County for a ground breaking ceremony for the Lee Road Building on November 14, 2011 at 11 a.m.

The U.S. Housing and Urban Development (HUD) Midwest Regional Administrator, Antonio R. Riley will join Cleveland Mayor, Frank G. Jackson for the ground breaking ceremony for the Lee Road Project, a new senior development helped by HUD’s Neighborhood Stabilization Program (NSP). The event will highlight the impact of neighborhood stabilization efforts and demonstrate how the American Jobs Act and Project Rebuild can continue to revitalize neighborhoods, create jobs, and grow local economies throughout Cleveland.   

The Lee Road Senior Building groundbreaking ceremony will take place at the old Beehive School site at 4345 Lee Road, just north of Miles Avenue. Lee Road will be a 3-floor apartment building with 40 units, 12 of which will meet uniform federal accessibility standards, designed by Richard Bowen and Associates.

CMHA is using approximately $2.8 million in Neighborhood Stabilization Program 2 funding received from the U.S. Dept of Housing and Urban Development. The NSP 2 funding is part of a $41 million dollar competitive grant award received by the Cleveland-Cuyahoga NSPII Consortium. With the Cuyahoga Land Bank serving as the lead agency, other Cuyahoga Consortium members that jointly obtained the grant are the City of Cleveland and Cuyahoga County. On top of the approximately $2.8 million, an additional $1 million in NSPII funding was awarded to the Lee Road project under a local competitive grant program awarded by other consortium members.

“Nearly $3 million in Neighborhood Stabilization Program funds will help the Lee Road Senior Building become a reality. And NSP funds have been used to rehab abandoned homes, stabilizing and revitalizing neighborhoods throughout the country,” said Antonio R. Riley, HUD’s Midwest Regional Administrator. “This demonstrates the power of the Neighborhood Stabilization Program and the need for the President’s proposed American Jobs Act which will put $15 billion of NSP funds to work creating jobs, stabilizing neighborhoods and helping communities.”

"CMHA is pleased to be partners in this outstanding project that will provide quality senior housing in this community,” said Jeffery K. Patterson, Acting CEO at CMHA. “We thank all of the local leaders and community stakeholders who work with us in the planning process to make this project happen.”

 “This site has long stood as an empty eyesore ripe for redevelopment,” said Gus Frangos, President of the Cuyahoga Land Bank. “We are thrilled to be able to be a part of bringing new vitality to this community in the form of much needed senior housing.”

About CMHA
