I'm sure many folks have seen this already, but I don't think it was posted.  The KS CUDC conducted a charrette focusing on Duck Island last fall and produced this master plan:

Very cool. The stormwater terrace on p. 10 is a superb example that should be emulated all along the river and lake.

Stormwater Capture

The northern slope of Duck Island, close to the Cuyahoga River, could be used for terraced or switchback stormwater capture in order to slow or
halt stormwater before it flows into the river, reducing the overall load on the watershed. (Schematic Drawing for the Cistern Steps on Vine Street in Seattle,  WA. Source: Growing Vine Street)

The stormwater system could be attractively planted and designed in such a way to allow public access and use.

^ $370k for the 3 bedroom units. They have been on zillow about a month. And a real estate agent sent me info about 2 months ago. Last I heard only a couple of them were left. But that was a couple weeks ago. They may be all sold by now.

I'd say $365K-$370K is fairly up there for most Ohio folk...I believe this is the new build being discussed:

Yes, and no. I couldn't afford it right now, but I don't think it's that out of the realm for some. Hopefully this will bring some suburbanites back in.

I believe that price-point is definately there for the dual income no kid (dink) demographic.  That being said, I think it would have been an easier sale on them 10 years ago when the thought or need of selling something in the future due to career change or lifes moments didn't even factor into the "cons".  I think today, younger folks are much more conservative in their home purchase then they were 10 years ago esentially due to the crisis we just went through, hence the robust rental markets.  A few units here and there, sure, but a condo development in the city of large proportions, I would be hesitant to put on the market...right now at least.

Three new plans designed to update specific neighborhoods on the East and West sides of Cleveland aren’t about to become reality overnight.

But by winning unanimous approval on Friday from the city’s planning commission, all three visions gained an important measure of validation and took a step toward realization.

duck island poised for redevelopment with completion of draft neighborhood plan

Duck Island, a pocket neighborhood between Ohio City and Tremont that has long been inexplicably walled off from the revitalization that surrounds it, might be poised to see a surge of development -- on its own terms -- if a new plan has anything to say about it.

Tremont West Development Corporation, with support from Cleveland Neighborhood Progress, hired the KSU Cleveland Urban Design Collaborative to conduct a community planning charrette last month. A draft plan is now complete. It will be presented at a community meeting in Tremont this month, and once finalized approval will be sought from the Cleveland Planning Commission.

Columbus Road is a path for growth

Area is home to residential development

By STAN BULLARD
Originally Published: June 22, 2014 4:30 AM  Modified: June 23, 2014 11:54 AM

Sam McNulty plans to build a townhouse for himself as part of a residential development he's working on at Columbus Road and Abbey Avenue. He bought the long-empty, gravel-covered site earlier this year because it's less than a five-minute walk from the office next to the West Side Market where McNulty and his partners run five nearby beer-centric businesses.

Brian and Muriel Storrie have bought a three-story townhouse that is under construction on the slope of Columbus west of the bridge. For now, it will be a getaway location from their home in Little Rock, Ark. Later it will be a full-time home after Brian Storrie eases into retirement from college teaching.

Such disparate motivations are starting to help rejuvenate Columbus Road, which has played a central role in Cleveland historically but has been bypassed by more recent redevelopment action nearby in the Flats and adjoining city neighborhoods and downtown.

The Ohio Burial Case Co. building at 1720 Columbus is a great building. I hope Brian Fabo, through Fabco Flats LLC, can do good things with that building.

And Cleveland Centre was intended to be a European-based town center. It was laid out in the early 19th century with a starburst of streets from a central focal point that became a common market place. Remember that streets back then were places for people, not vehicles, so vendors, merchants, commodity brokers and mercantilists all gathered at confluence of streets to buy and sell things as they came in from the hinterlands of America on Ohio Canal packets before being placed on ships for Great Lakes port cities -- the most prominent of which was Lockport, NY where goods would be sent east on the Erie Canal. Cleveland Centre is where this trade happened until the canal business outgrew this area and began moving up the hill into what is now the Warehouse District -- which some claim is Cleveland's first central business district. Not true. Cleveland Centre was Cleveland's first central business district back when water transportation had little competition -- including for the mass transportation of of goods across the land!

Found on the BZA agenda for August 18 2014: http://planning.city.cleveland.oh.us/bza/agenda/2014/crr08-18-2014.pdf

Richard Vanpetten and Dale H. Smith, owners, propose to erect a 28’ x 76’ 2 story frame and single family
residence on a parcel that is 66.70’ x 120’ in a B1 Multi-Family Residential District. The owners appeal from the
strict application of Section 357.09 (2) (C) of the Cleveland Codified Ordinances which requires an interior side
yard of 8 feet and 5 feet are proposed (filed July 15, 2014).
