Surprised this isn't already a designated landmark. I'm also surprised this is still a going concern, considering the decline of the surrounding neighborhood. I've always wondered what this looks like inside....

^ Sachsenheim is a hidden treasure. Check it out on Taco Tuesday’s or Wing Wednesdays. They also have $1 burgers on Thursdays. Specials on Fridays can be a surprise. So much character. It’s fun to roam around that place, inconspicuously of course ;-)

Ps the cook there is Grumpy, from Grumpys Cafe fame in Tremont.

Some very nice city views up there by Sachsenheim, Denison/Ridge. Could only imagine how impressive it would be from some mid-rise apartments. That's years/decades away, if ever, though.

Developer plans to revive old bakery as apartments

Efforts are underway to rejuvenate a one-time bakery building at 2707 Barber Ave. in Cleveland as 69 rental apartments.

The sprawling, four-block long structure dates to 1900 when it was constructed for the J. Spang Baking Co., which was acquired by the former Laub Baking Co. in 1958, according to "The Encyclopedia of Cleveland History." The local history said Spang's roots go back to 1888 when founder Julius Spang opened a "small bake shop" using skills as a baker he learned in Germany before coming to the U.S.

http://www.crainscleveland.com/article/20180411/news/157951/developer-plans-revive-old-bakery-apartments

This is at the northeast corner of the MetroWest CDC service area just north  of I-90:

Cleveland antiquers are living their Googie dream

Margaret Daole and Dave Crider of Googie Style are hunters.

Clawing their way through garage sales, flea markets and estate sales, they find treasures with which to fill their galleries, carefully curated with vintage and mid-century furniture; art and unusual décor; as well as Crider's handmade furniture.

In November, Googie moved from a small Madison Avenue storefront in Lakewood to a 2,500-square-foot warehouse space on West 33rd Street in Cleveland's Clark-Fulton neighborhood on the city's West Side.

I grew up on the West side of Cleveland in the 60's & 70's and it's nice to see one of the older  neighborhoods that's NOT a Hot Spot for development get some much needed TLC!

I drove by the new DOLLAR GENERAL store under construction at Fulton and Walton, just north of Clark Avenue earlier today.  It look like it's mostly completed at least with the brick walls.  That former parking lot has been there since the 70's and has slowly been getting bigger over the years.......

A "recovering mobster" owns that property. Allegedly.

Really?

Do tell us more if you can.......

I know that the guy who started Tony's Market at Clark Ave near McDonald's many years ago. has bought up a lot of the properties along Clark Ave including what's now the Save A Lot. Near West 25 St.....

He owns most of the lots along Clark from  the drivethur beverage store just west of Fulton to West 25 Street.

Anyone know what kind of restaurants these would be?

From BZA's June 25, 2018 agenda...
9:30
Calendar No. 18-128: 2886 W. 25 Street Ward 14
Jasmine Santana
21 Notices
Norma Castro, owner, and Northeast Ohio Hispanic Center for Economic Development, lessee,
propose to establish two eating places and two retail spaces in a C2 Local Retail Business District and
a Pedestrian Retail Overlay District. The owner appeals for relief from the strict application of Section
343.23(i) which states that nine (9) off street parking spaces are required no parking is proposed.

I wish they would throw in some evergreens so it would look less barren in the winter.

And the local pols will pat themselves on the back for replacing the once walled off Metro campus with a mile of green space, still separating it from the neighborhood. Only now figuratively walled off instead of literally. On West 25th no less, where the city and RTA should be looking for TOD, not parks.

I posted that confused puppy GIF because that would probably be the reaction of Metrohealth staff if confronted with the idea of building TOD along West 25th.

I thought there was a decent amount of scholarship concluding park-like settings help the recovery process in urban hospitals?

The only patients you ever see outdoors at a hospital are the ones looking for a place to smoke.  Nobody is going to use these park areas except maybe employees on a sunny day during lunch hour. 

This whole thing looks like it could've been designed for a suburban highway interchange area, not a city neighborhood.  It's about as urban as Eaton's corporate campus in Beachwood.

(although at least it's not surrounded by a sea of surface lots...)

I agree. It’s all about the healing environment. HGA designs hospitals all over the US, and are very in tune with the current design trends in healthcare. We may not like it from an urban perspective, but it’s about the patients and their families.

I don't know what the scholarship actually says, but my guess is there is a better way to implement it in an urban environment then just "big suburban lawn on all sides".
