Amazing. I've been using their stuff since they first started in '12 and am a big fan. If you want to make a very customizable web map, it's (specifically mapbox-studio) is the way to go. They're also doing a lot of innovative work with web maps (hired developer of leaflet a few years ago), also check out turf.js and mapbox-gl if you haven't already. They have also expanded in recent years to routing and satellite imagery that take advantage of the new landsat. I'm pretty knowledgeable about them. 

I just needed a really quick, simple map, so I just used their web interface to make the above map. Access to their satellite imagery in your maps will be $5/month.

The only thing in the geospatial game that they haven't conquered is geocoding (transforming addresses into lat/lon points to place on a map) although they're working on it.

I haven't really used any ESRI products, so I can't compare to that. Another solid alternative to them is cartoDB which is entirely web-based.

Quite a bit already under construction. It's awesome to see. The two houses at Smith and 19th and the group of townhomes on 17th are almost done. And they are digging foundations for another set of houses on 19th further up just before Carnegie/Lorain.

Anyone have any info on this project. Really haven't heard anything about it for awhile. Has anyone seen any demo or signage at the site? I know there were some environmental clean up and property acquisition issues that needed to be done. And the developers reputation has taken a few hits in the past. Hope it can still get done.

Certainly is a large project that would require many different landowners to sell their property to the developer.

And what if the one remaining landowner wanted nearly a million dollars for his property...

Craft coffee, mead, beer and unique vehicle coming to Duck Island

Duck Island, the story of which is hard to nail down, is an unusual neighborhood. At once, it's home to the tony Velvet Tango Room, wherein stepping out for a cocktail is elevated to an event worthy of Gatsby, and the Duck Island Club, which invites customers to "duck in and duck out" for specials such as $3 "mystery beers."
 
A host of diverse beverage options is about to fill in the middle ground when Forest City Brewery, 2135 Columbus Road, comes online in as little as four months.
 
"This was a saloon that was built in 1865 by immigrants from the Alsace region of France," says brewery proprietor Jay Demagall from the Freeman Avenue Entrance of the 10,000-square-foot space. "There was a huge beer garden with an actual bowling alley at the very end of it."

There's been 'demo of signage' meaning the billboard that stood on the site has been removed.

Some photos of the construction around Duck Island:

West 19th and Smith Court:


West 19th:


West 17th and Bradford:


Columbus Road:


For those in the know - what's going on with the former bakery, the adjacent green house (that's been art-bombed) and the brick home facing West 20th? The brick home looks like it got new windows, but if the green home and the bakery are coming down... seems to be taking a while?

I wish I could find the original site plan of this project from 18 months ago. It was probably lost in the server crash some time back. The plan showed roughly 10 two-story townhomes with single car garage next to each unit. So the elevation left to right was 2 story (house), 1 story (garage), 2, then 1, etc all attached. The renderings looked like they were done with crayon.

The wife and I were looking for a house at the time and asked the listing agent about it. He told me the site plan was so bad they fired the architect and took the entire project back to the drawing board. And here we are a year later, I think they aimed a little higher this time:

I really don't like townhouses, but I think I would kill to live in one of those on West 17th and Bradford

Correct. Not that it matters because the new plan is an order of magnitude better but I did a bit of digging (I was bored). There might not have been a public site plan. I remember the project going to the board of zoning for variances (10/14/2013). Exhibit A!:

http://planning.city.cleveland.oh.us/bza/agenda/2013/crr10-14-2013.pdf

Within a few weeks I saw these townhomes pop-up on Zillow with a couple bad renderings. Funny enough, one of them still shows up for-sale on Zillow but the images were removed. Exhibit B:

Knez Homes to seek Cleveland City Planning Commission approval for Duck Island Townhomes
June 18, 2015
STAN BULLARD   
REAL ESTATE

Talk about rewriting the rules for building homes.

Builders usually try to put as many homes as possible on a site to maximize potential profits. Meantime, city planners and zoning codes restrict how many units go on a particular spot of land to comply with local planning rules in hopes of a desirable result.

However, Painesville-based Knez Homes on Friday, June 19, plans to ask Cleveland City Planning Commission to approve the proposed Duck Island Townhomes, a 23-unit townhouse development at 2251-2271 W. 19th St.

Originally Bo Knez, president of Knez Homes, proposed six suites for the same site. However, when the plan went before the planning commission’s Near West Design Review District and others in 2013, it was suggested the site might accommodate more units to help neighborhood goals to support public transit and neighborhood services with more density.

I just drove by, and the siding has been removed from the 'art house' by abbey and 19th. Looks like it's coming down soon or being re-sided.
