Centric may not be tall, but it is definitely a large development. It should contribute some decent ridership to the Red Line station next to it. Now we just need a couple of these at EVERY rail station... ;)

Van Aken is doing its best imitation.

Centric isn’t that tall, but it’s impressive and really fills in the space, as does the apartment complex going up in Hingetown/Ohio City at Detroit and West 25th.

Hessler's iconic.   If UCI didn't wipe it out during the 80s, it's not going to happen.

If anyone wants a good excuse to check out the CWRU Varsity Club at the Wyant Athletic & Wellness Center, there are two NCAA championship/playoff watch party events going on tomorrow.  Phase I was completely recently, and Phase II for a fieldhouse is on the University docket.

NCAA Championship Watch Party Saturday at Wyant

NCAAl DIII cross country -- 12:00 PM
NCAA DIII football playoffs, CWRU @ Illinois Wesleyan -- 1:00 PM

University Circle's Magnolia Clubhouse completes major renovation in historic home
KARIN CONNELLY RICE | WEDNESDAY, DECEMBER 13, 2017

Since 1961, Magnolia Clubhouse has been a place where people with mental illness can go for friendship, counseling, help finding employment, and even just to get a good meal. Situated in two neighboring early 1900s houses, Magnolia Clubhouse is located at 11101 and 11027 Magnolia Drive in University Circle—and about to enter the final stages of a $3.85 million renovation effort.

Originally known as Hill House, the organization was one of the first psychological rehabilitation centers in the United States. It became Magnolia Clubhouse in 2004, joining a network of more than 300 Clubhouse Internationals around the world.

“Simply put, the difference between the Magnolia Clubhouse model and other mental health centers that help with rehab is we’re not just a drop-in center,” explains Whitney Bohan, Magnolia Clubhouse's development director. “People come here, and they help to run the clubhouse.”

It's likely referenced here somewhere, but what is going up along Fairhill Road between Carnegie and Cedar avenues?  I see it's definitely a building project, in contrast to sewer work or the like.  Val's Lounge was around there for a while, before it folded.

I believe it's the new Centers for Dialysis Care (CDC) Cleveland East.  I presume this means it'll free up that prime real estate of their current location of E.117th and Euclid.

What is that project going up in UC that is located next to CIA and by the lot that sells the Christmas trees?

This isn't for the CIA dorms, is it? I would assume they would have had their property already secured by before advancing into construction right? Or is this just east of the new dorm? The description says "near" East 117th street not "at" 117th street....

ADMINISTRATIVE APPROVALS

Ordinance No. 1460-17(Ward 6/Councilmember Griffin): Authorizing the Director of Capital Projects to enter into a Partial Release of Easement Agreement with University Circle Incorporated, or its designee, regarding certain easement rights in property located near the southeast corner of Euclid Avenue and vacated East 117th Street for purposes of redevelopment, and declaring that the easement interests are not needed for the City’s public use.

Looks like that's for the CIA dorms. The project includes street parking on part of 117th. The vacation is probably for that easement.

IDK if this is your question, but the property isn't actually owned by CIA. Much like the Uptown dorms, the school leases the building from a separate owner.

Today I noticed the rear parking lot, facing Belflower, has been roped off and there are many vehicles/trailers parked there and a large number of big boxes or crates from the same company.  Could they be some sort of workstations being brought in?  Are things being brought in or moved out?  The plans for the building or site have never been officially announced; I wonder if this indicates the building might remain, after all.  The last i had heard was that it was to remain but be turned into classrooms and studios for art and art history students, with the entire CMA library moved over there.  Any updates? 
Also, I had asked what the construction is between Fairhill Road (Stokes Blvd?) and MLK Drive, but I didn't see any responses.  So what is it?  The construction is major, so I'm sure some on you could answer.  Thanks!

^ Your question regarding the building on Stokes Blvd between Cedar and Carnegie was answered above. See Murray Hill's post. As for a parking lot off Bellflower, no idea.

I generally love this project. However I can't help but feel bothered by this whole situation.

The parking lot was used to convince BZA to grant variances for the Happy Dog across the street. The City's zoning code has minimum parking requirements, and UCI/Happy Dog were granted variances because of that lot.

Then this project goes to BZA to get its own set a variances, and not a question is raised about parking for the businesses and the variances they got. Now, I'm not advocating for parking minimums, but it all seems like such a farce and waste of time.

I think the city should do away with parking minimums in certain neighborhoods.  There should be no need for parking variance in UC.

There's just some neighborhoods where walking is a joy, regardless of whether, and cars take so much away from the enjoyment. University Circle is one of those places. I was there last night in the snow and it was so peaceful and beautiful walking in the snow. I will post my pictures from that walk in the photos thread.

I agree. I'm just commenting on how silly the dance the City does appears to be.

Progress on the Nord Family Greenway!


Part of a new sign.


Looking towards the Maltz Center. Many of the trees planted are large-growing oaks, maples or similar.


The walking path straight toward the Tinkham Veale University Center.


Interesting linear, architectural feature. Does anyone know if this serves a practical purpose?


Path and staircase on Art Museum side.


Bike path descending from E.105th St.


Bike path toward Cancer Survivor's Plaza area / CMNH.


Doan Brook exit + new bridge / overlook.


Former location of CMA maintenance facility. In the distance is the CMA + NEORSD project to re-route + stabilize + naturalize Done Brook beneath the Museum's embankment.

This is about something that is technically just outside of UC, but I'll allow myself to post it since it's about something very close to the work going on around the Maltz center posted above.

The other day I took a shortcut on my way home down Newton Ave and was really surprised and impressed by what I saw. Here is a group of single family homes on small lots, with short setbacks, on a narrow, not quite straight street. It's a really charming street and something that I'd recommend checking out. It's just behind the Maltz center and the Innova development.
