I'm embarrassed to say that I've never actually been to Sterle's. Last time I was in Cleveland I drove down St. Clair and thought how great it would be if they developed the area around 55th. Glad to see there is some movement on that.

Nice. At this rate Ohio could very well reach Michigan as brewing mecca!

More great news in St. Clair Superior...very cool project with KSU to redesign abandoned houses.

KSU students get credit and construction experience in the design/build renovation of a vacant house in St. Clair Superior (slideshow)

Using hammers and muscle, a half dozen hard-hatted architecture students from Kent State University College of Architecture and Environmental Design tore rotting plaster and lathe from the studs of a vacant, 82-year-old Cleveland house as part of a gut-and-remodel job.

It was the second Friday in June and members of a new KSU summer class in construction were digging into the dirty work of making architecture happen.

They're also exploring ways in which at least some houses abandoned in Cleveland after the mortgage foreclosure crisis and recession in the last decade could be re-used instead of demolished.

Over a two-month period, two groups of a half-dozen students each will get credit for remodeling a vacant but structurally sound two-story brick house in the St. Clair Superior neighborhood on the east side of East 67th Street, just south of St. Clair Avenue.

CLEVELAND, Ohio - Cleveland's first creative reuse center opens for regular hours this week, after a special weekend launch. Fittingly, the Upcycle Parts Shop is in one of Cleveland's most exciting neighborhoods in transition.

"I have been a reuse artist for a couple years and have gotten connected with a broader community of upcyclers," says director Nicole McGee. "It's about caring about the environment and wanting to be creative.

"I was trying to come up ways to bring this to Cleveland, and that's when (Executive Director of St. Clair Superior Development Corporation) Michael Fleming and I talked about doing this in St. Clair Superior."

At Upcycle, you'll find: a selection of upcycled parts for low cost to transform into art; workshops, open studios and craft parties.

Business are encouraged to donate their unwanted scraps and waste materials in the cause of art.

"This is really exciting," says McGee. "The dream is coming true."

The Upcycle Parts Shop is a part of St. Clair Superior Community Development Organization's Upcycle St. Clair project. Upcycle St. Clair was funded in June 2013 by the ArtPlace America funding collaboration

Hours: Noon – 6 p.m. Wednesday and Friday, noon – 8 p.m. Thursday and 10 a.m. – 4 p.m. Saturday.

The Upcycle Parts Shop is at 6419 St. Clair Ave., and online at upcyclepartsshpo.org.

This didn't get posted back in September, but there's a new bi-weekly market event in St. Clair Superior, at the site of the future Hub 55 Project.  Two market events have already been held, with another this Thursday.

CLEVELAND, Ohio – Rick Semersky and the St. Clair Superior Development Corporation's dreams for East 55th Street are one step closer to reality.

Semersky, owner of Sterle's Country House and the upcoming Hub 55 market-brewery-restaurant complex, and Michael Fleming, executive director of the St. Clair Superior Development Corporation, revealed plans Monday for the first concrete step towards Hub 55's opening. A bi-weekly pop-up food and artisan market will begin Thursday, October 9.

More than a dozen vendors are already lined up for the market, which will launch at Sterle's (1401 East 55th Street) and move next door to its permanent home at Hub 55 (1361 East 55th Street) in January.

"The Thursday market is a way to tie the whole Hub area to the future market that will be there," says Fleming. "We want to start to get people thinking about the Hub as a place where people can get fresh produce and food and locally made goods."

"There will be a food focus, but also hyperlocal focus to it. This is a very small beginning we can ramp up over winter as the completion of the Hub gets closer."

The St. Clair Market, as it will be named, will be held from 4 to 8 p.m. every other Thursday.

...and out today is more information on Hub 55, specifically who has been tapped to be head brewer for the brewery going in.  It's Joel Wagner, Pub Brewer at Great Lakes.  This should bring instant excitement to this project and to this growing area of the city!

Much-anticipated Hub 55 project in Cleveland's St. Clair-Superior area reveals plans for brewery

CLEVELAND, Ohio – Hub 55/Sterle's Country House owner Rick Semersky looked nationwide for a brewer for his developing Goldhorn Brewery – but he found who he was looking for right here in Cleveland.

On Monday, Semersky announced that Joel Warger has been named Head Brewer for the 10,000-square-foot brewery with a 100-seat tap room slated to open in 2015 at Hub 55 on East 55th Street. Warger is currently the Pub Brewer at Great Lakes Brewing Co., where he has worked for 14 years.

"I couldn't have found a better Head Brewer for Goldhorn then Joel," says Semersky. Warger will also be a minority owner in Goldhorn, with a hand in every aspect of the brewery and restaurant as well as the beermaking.

"I was looking everywhere, I had talked to people outside the Cleveland market, but Joel is just a great find. He's very excited about what we're doing for the neighborhood. We're on the same page for the brewery and the restaurant and he's very passionate about area."

"The styles of beer and the overall concept for the brewery along with Goldhorn's presence in the St. Clair-Superior Neighborhood, made it an easy decision to sign on," says Warger.

Goldhorn Brewery is slated to open next spring, with plans to brew 500-600 barrels in his first year.

The brewery will concentrate on traditional European-style beers, says Semersky - lagers, pilsners, ales and Hefeweizens.

the cleveland flea thrives as small business incubator
JACQUELINE BON | TUESDAY, NOVEMBER 18, 2014

Here in Cleveland, our thriftiness is a large part of our charm.
 
It seems that at some point in the gradual course of our renaissance as a city, we made the collective decision to embrace the term “Rust Belt.” It doesn’t seem long ago that the phrase was thrown around to categorize us as a postindustrial city with a chip on its shoulder.
 
Now, it almost comes as a relief that “Rust Belt” is ingrained into the titles of dozens of thriving, local, independent businesses as a term of endearment and a testament to our authenticity.
 
Although thriftiness is one of our defining characteristics, a little over a year ago, Cleveland lacked a monthly flea market that unifies handmade items with vintage vendors, upcycled goods, antiques and local food.

If St. Martin de Porres builds new, it means they vacate the old St. Vitus school building that they lease from St. Vitus.  I hope  the church can find a new use for the building.  It will be hard for them to keep it maintained without a tenant.

Federal investment in St. Clair Hub 55 food market is well warranted: editorial
By Editorial Board
on December 23, 2014 at 7:00 AM, updated December 23, 2014 at 7:19 AM

The federal government is helping to create an oasis amid one of Cleveland's food deserts -- an area with a shortage of fruits and vegetables because of a lack of vendors to provide them.

The Department of Health and Human Services has extended an $800,000 grant to the St. Clair Superior Development Corp. to help establish a new farmer's market for locally grown produce, an affirmation of the private dollars already invested toward that end.

The market will go inside Hub 55, a complex being developed on East 55th Street, just south of St. Clair Avenue, by Sterle's Country House owner Rick Semersky.

Wow!! This is a significant investment in the neighborhood and an amazing re-use of an amazing building! I'm mildly disappointed they are demolishing more than the rear half of the existing building. But I think they are making up for it with the rest of the project's investment.

Across the street from the Plain Dealer, eh?

developer forsakes chicago for the 216, snaps up vintage space in campus district

erin o'brien | Monday, January 26, 2015

Twenty-year development veteran Chris Matan is buying into Cleveland in more ways than one.
 
 Not only did he leave the Windy City -- his hometown -- to marry wife Ivana three and a half years ago, he closed just last month on a 25,000-square-foot building at 2104 Superior Avenue.
 
 "When I first moved here, I'd drive around the area and it shocked me -- the product that was here, the warehouse buildings so close to downtown. Nothing was happening," he says. "I kind of saw the future in some of these buildings."

CLEVELAND, Ohio - The wheels of progress continue to move forward at the ambitious Hub 55 project on East 55th Street. Developer Rick Semersky, owner of 60-year-old Sterle's Country House and the visionary behind the Hub, has hired a new GM and executive chef. Jeff Jarrett, formerly executive chef of Amp 150, will head up Café 55, The Taproom at Goldhorn Brewery and the soon-to-be-announced restaurant that will occupy the historic former LakeShore Banking and Trust space at the corner of East 55th Street and St. Clair Avenue.

"With Hub 55 coming online, I knew that I needed someone to join me in making sure that our growing portfolio of restaurants stays true to themselves while also working together to be successful," says Semersky.

"After meeting with Jeff and sharing my vision for St. Clair, knowing of his past successes and his love for the city, I knew I had found the right person."

"It's a fantastic opportunity and a logical next step in my career," says Jarrett. "Rick offered me the opportunity to do so much more than just running another restaurant. His passion is addictive, and I'm excited about being a part of that."

Jarrett will also be overseeing Sterle's restaurant, food truck and catering business.
