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.

Thank god

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.

Just saw today that one or both of the homes on this site have been demolished.

While riding my bike a week ago past by Lorain and W20th, I noticed that a couple more houses were being demolished on the north side of Lorain where the Brickhaus apartments/condos were proposed. Does the developer now have full site control now, and is he close to breaking ground? My friend was looking at buying a condo nearby and was wondering about that large vacant parcel.

Looks like these two lots between the white house at left and the curved part of West 18th/overhead part of Lorain Avenue would be consolidated per architect Horton's application...

On Sam Mcnulty's Facebook he has a sneak preview of the townhomes he's building next to VTR (at Columbus & Abbey).
Right now just a gravel lot.

Not on Facebook? OK, here......
______

here's a very preliminary sneak peak of the seven duck island townhomes we'll start building later this year right next to the Red Line Greenway and The Velvet Tango Room. duck island is the perfectly situated neighborhood that connects ohio city and tremont and sits at the top of the columbus road hill. since the design is evolving, we don't have pricing or timeline or any more details but we do know they're going to be super fun when they're finished...

I think that is the building on the south west corner of 25th and lorain.  catty corner to the market....not the cold storage building.

The one that has Crop on the ground floor.

-edit-

saw the cold storage building as well.

No, first picture.  Bottom left-hand corner, with the water tank on top.  The view is from Columbus Rd. looking east along Abbey Avenue.

All confusing.  I thought the big project (mixed use with residential, offices, etc.) described in the PD last year, if not 2013, was to go from Columbus Road up the hill to the Lorain Avenue level.  But when that big announcement came, it was just the time that long-vacant restaurant right on Lorain was demolilshed, and the article said it was for this project, but that restaurant was to the east of Columbus Road.  So were the houses that were just demolished.  If the big project were to go from the west side of Columbus road up the hill to Lorain Avenue level, then aren't the new townhouses right on Columbus, nearly finished part of that project?

Okay - I walked across the Hope Mem. bridge the other day and I now have it straight, noting there are two bridges west of the Hope bridge: the one over Columbus Road and and one over the railroad tracks.  The big project described in the PD over a year ago would go from the west side of Columbus Road up the hill to Lorain Avenue.  This area includes the acreage of that demolished long-vacant cafe, the demolished bunch of houses near Lorain, and the new townhouses on the west side of Columbus Road. :oops:

^ Great article. Some comments from Berges allude to opposition to these developments. I've heard the same thing. Like the townhouses south of the animal clinic are basically dead in the water because of the residents across the street.

There's a lot of NIMBYs and to put it crudely, more 'I support the NRA' door stickers and confederate flags in duck Island than you'd think (more than one or zero).

I hate it when it's inserted where it shouldn't exist - which is, here.  By principle, democracy shouldn't interfere with property rights.  But just practically speaking, what the h*ll kind of system have we created that cranky Duck Island residents get to make the decision, as a group, what exists goes on vacant lots?!  Really?!  You couldn't conceive of a system more ripe for abuse.

Zoning was created as a downward ratchet to de-densify areas and exclude people.  It's just operating exactly as it was intended, here.

My guess is that some of them were a part of the general Appalachian migration that came here but mostly settled in what's now the stockyards and Denison, Clark/Fulton areas.


Of course, I should talk to some of them and find out...

Eventually they'll get squeezed out by the free market. Their vacant lots will soon be too expensive to keep vacant. If they truly are right wingers, then they should respect the will of the free market and not violate their own beliefs by welcoming government interference in the market -- even if it is to preserve their own self interest.

West 19th south of Abbey project is not dead in the water.  It's moving forward with a zoning change to allow for density.  While the neighbors are dead against it, it will most likely get done.
