Looks like pricing from $2.20/sf/month to $3.85/sf/month (I didn't check all of them so that might be slightly off). That's pretty pricey. I hope it does well since it helps with lending to have projects like this successful in Cleveland.

Opening next month...One University Circle:

Full circle: One University Circle prepares to open its doors in April
KARIN CONNELLY RICE | THURSDAY, MARCH 08, 2018

Soaring 20 stories into the Cleveland skyline, One University Circle is almost ready for its close-up. In April, the building will welcome its first tenants as the neighborhood’s first high-rise apartment building community in more than 40 years.

When general contractor Panzica Construction prepared to break ground on the project in January 2016, University Circle Inc. president Chris Ronayne likened the project to similar apartments in New York’s Central Park and Chicago’s Millennium Park. To make it happen, University Circle, Inc. partnered with First Interstate Properties and Petros Development.

View from near E118th down Euclid towards One University Circle (right edge of photo). Seeing a building with this height at the end of straight, dense section of Euclid is great. It helps demonstrate the effect a building on the Jacobs Public Square lot would have on downtown.

I wouldn't say that this is a fair demonstration of Jacob's lot. This is more of a 515 Euclid or PHST deal... Its actually one of the more renaissance buildings of UC breaking the major height barrier. IF there were more density and more height in UC, I would definitely say that 1UC was a waste of space. So in my retrospect, no way is this project comparable to Jacob's lot.
There are still some HIGH hopes for that lot.

I know people haven't moved in yet... but...earlier articles mentioned a potential "Phase 2", which could include potential condos and office space.  Since this project has been delivered, I would consider even a potential phase 2 to be more than just talk.

..."And they aren't in a rush to tackle phase two, northwest of the tower.

First Interstate and Petros Development Corp. have just under an acre left to play with on the site, which they control through a long-term land lease with nonprofit neighborhood group University Circle, Inc. They're talking about more residential construction - including, possibly, condominiums - and exploring whether it makes sense to put offices on the lower floors of a second building.

"We're just not there yet," Mitchell Schneider said. He hopes to figure out the make-up of the next project next year, with the goal of breaking ground in 2019."

I wish this had some sort of retail on the ground floor. This stretch could use this type of activity.

The new UC3 development across the street will hopefully rectify this.

Hopefully because right next to this development is where UC begins to tail off a the Cleveland Clinic/Suburban effect takes hold. Interestingly enough if you really pay attention, UC is split into three areas; Arts, Medical and now Uptown. I feel like if we want to see the mixed used, Uptown style development, it's going to be east of Uptown under the bridge going toward Lakeview Cemetery.

Fences are off at One University Circle. My daily trip down Euclid is always an amazing snapshot of new construction – at RTA Healthline - Stokes/Stearns station

Had a client in today from Philadelphia. Told me University Circle made him feel like he was in a worldwide cultural hub. That's the second or third time I've had out of town friends / clients tell me they loved UC

If only some of our own local suburbanites would take their blinders off and get to know the area and come and visit. A very dear friend of mine, who is a great person, lives in the east suburbs, referred to the area as "University Heights" when talking about a visit to the Corner Alley and I died a little inside. Had to stop myself from correcting him.

I can be a know-it-all if I don't check myself so I try to stop myself correcting in general - I just try to use the proper term next time I say it.

One University Circle opens its doors
http://www.crainscleveland.com/article/20180503/news/160326/one-university-circle-opens-its-doors

Very calming natural tones inside. I'm wondering, how much room is there in UC for more developments of this scale?

Look across the street -- to the planned UC3. The first building of which is planned to rise atop the new MLK branch library (to help defray foundation construction expenses).

Will any of of UC3 be for-sale units or just more rental units? I know for-sale units are harder to finance, but there is demand among buyers--and the lack of for-sale housing is keeping a lot of people out of these neighborhoods. I for one would be interested in buying a place Downtown or in Ohio City, but there's no way in hell i'd blow $24-36K away in rent each year. I'm sure its the same with many others for UC.

Took these today, just a few days after the building's official opening. But you can see it's not done yet -- balcony railings aren't installed and it looks like there's boxes/materials for interior buildouts stacked inside apartments near the upper floors. BTW sun roofs are great for getting photos of high-rises....


But windshields are not....

Redirect, your honor.....

Here ya go, @YABO713. This would be at the corner of Euclid and Stokes. Seems it would block views of downtown from phase one.....


And they aren't in a rush to tackle phase two, northwest of the tower.

First Interstate and Petros Development Corp. have just under an acre left to play with on the site, which they control through a long-term land lease with nonprofit neighborhood group University Circle, Inc. They're talking about more residential construction - including, possibly, condominiums - and exploring whether it makes sense to put offices on the lower floors of a second building.

To add to my post above, I found this early site plan for One University Circle. Note the site for Phase Two......

From the article:

"It's not just a building," said Mayor Frank Jackson. "What does the building mean? What statement does it make?

"The statement it makes to me is that it creates the expectation that things can happen in any neighborhood in the City of Cleveland," Jackson said.


What's he talking about? Does he think University Circle is like Glenville or Kinsman, that its an equally challenged neighborhood for investment?

^yeah, I like it, it just wish it had ground level retail that would better connect the clinic area to Uptown. I hope the bldg that is adjacent to it in the plans will be all for-sale units.
