This looks the same as those pics from a long time ago...still not doing much of anything for me.  Although, I'd love to see them build it!

Wow, it actually sounds like this tower might actually get built

"why is the tower offset from the main parking structure?"

The elevator core is located closer to the southeast corner of the garage. My guess is that the tower would just continue from that.

It would be interesting to see this building in the skyline - it would be at a distinct angle from 5/3rd since it would front Euclid.

Is there some sort of height restriction for buildings next to the arcade?  I just noticed that the BP garage and the 515 garage are the same height as the arcade.  Maybe that is why the tower is offset.
Just a thought

i think it looks interesting which in a way is outside of good or bad -- it grabs your attention. best of all it's forward thinking which we need to see more of. i hope everyone read that propertiesmag article mayday linked it was very informative to hear the inside story. i liked the inspirational quote at the end from daivid goldberg, co-chair of ohio savings bank:

“This building, the Business Improvement District (BID) that's underway and House of Blues are each a small part of the solution for downtown Cleveland,” Goldberg says. “I look at this building as 1% of the solution, but if there are a hundred of these sorts of projects, then you have New York City or Chicago. You can do it. When you put the BID, the House of Blues and the 515 building together with housing and controlling the panhandling, they all add up together. Each party basically has to put in its 1% and take the risk. You put them all together and, no question, Downtown Cleveland will become spectacular.”

From the article, it doesn't seem like the condo project is going to happen anytime soon.  Yet, I think that it will happen sometime.

“All utilities have been sized for the addition and the core support is already there,” he says. “So now when a developer comes through, it can basically just start construction, raising the steel frame. All the tricky issues involved have been resolved. The elevators and stairwells are installed. Everything has been engineering to support this tower.

“With the Euclid Avenue Corridor project two years from completion, the timing is right for a developer to take over and have the 515 Euclid high rise completed at the same time. It's available as soon as someone comes in with a proposal that we will accept.”


I  think that construction on a tower may start this time next year. Judging by the Pinnacle project, it would probably take at least 1.5-2 years to build, which would coincide with the completion of the ECP. With the tower not covering the entire width of the garage I think it would be cool if they made the open area into a green space for the residents.

Word is that the residential tower will not be happening anytime soon. The market precludes a developer from getting a high enough price per square foot.

How long was the Pinnacle garage there before Pinnacle.

By the way, they must have put up another piece of glass, what happened to the updates??

I believe the Pinnacle garage was a former warehouse, converted for parking. It was not built with Pinnacle in mind.

^The garage had to have been built with the Pinnacle in mind.  THe inner core of a warehouse could never support a 12 story addition atop it nor could the conventional spread/footer/column pad for a warehouse support the addition.

depending on when these buildings were built, it was fairly common in cleveland during the growth years to actually size the buildings to support upward additions.  Obviously, many of the buildings in the warehouse area were not built this way b/c they are old and meant to be 4 story or 6 story buildings, however it wouldn't surprise me that this warehouse/parking structure may have been built with upward additions in mind. 

i haven't seen the inside of the garage, but it almost appears that in the pinnacle case, they may have transferred most of the weight to the new steel skeleton, in which case, the garage itself would not have had to be built with upward additions in mind.  Any insights?

Urbanlife, I believe you're correct -- the Pinnacle's support is independent of the warehouse. Its skeleton kind of "wraps around" the exterior of the warehouse to anchor at street level.

Unfortunately, I'm not too confident that we'll see any tenants until the Euclid Corridor construction is wrapped up.  I wouldn't want to open my business here with the amount of heavy machinery that's out front right now and nothing to separate us but a big sheet of glass!

I hope I'm wrong, though, cause I walk by here every day and I could use some new shoes...Camper, perhaps?  Kenneth Cole?  I could even buy my girl some makeup if there was something in a...say...Sephora?

I would agree that leasings on Lower Euclid may be sparse until the completion of the Corridor.  I talked to someone close to the leasing operations for one of the buildings in Playhouse Square, and potential tenants are paying for options to the storefronts in that building that would allow them the opportunity to lease after the completion of the Corridor. 

I also heard from a non-profit currently headquartered in a storefront on Lower Euclid that they will likely be forced out at the end of their lease, due to cost projections for the space based on a completed Corridor.

you have to dig deeper.  they have updated the timeline in only certain sections.  i have emailed a few times regarding conflicting data and lack of updates - check out the press release and recent update sections.  very slim pickings here.  In good RTA style, no response or corrections made. 

Hello?  this is one of the biggest construction projects in cleveland now.

What I also don't understand is why the Public Square to Innerbelt portion was slated to be completed AFTER the Innerbelt to E.79th street section.  This never made any sense and is actually penalizing downtown by keeping merchants away from the storefronts even longer than needed.

Type: Mixed-Use
Project Name: 515 Euclid Avenue Parking Garage & Tower
City: Cleveland
State: OH
Client: Ohio Savings Bank

Features: 524-car spaces on seven supported levels plus grade with 11,000 sq. ft. of ground level commercial/retail space, 20,000 sq. ft. ballroom and 240 residential units.

Description: The 515 Euclid Building is situated on the northwest corner of East 6th Street and Euclid Avenue. It is a mixed-use development designed to house 524 parking spaces beneath a 240 unit high rise, luxury condominium tower. It will also contain a 20,000 square foot ballroom and 11,000 square feet of grade level commercial retail. The urban site has dictated an architectural solution conducive of a downtown office building. The structural framing system is cast-in-place concrete with a combination of glass and cast stone panels as the architectural facade material. The pictures above show the completion of the 524 space parking garage and the rendering on the right shows the next phase of this project, a 19-story vertical condominium addition.

DESMAN is the prime Architect and Structural Engineer of Record and Parking Consultant. Richard Fleischman Architects are the Design Architects.

DAMN IT! So we're stuck with Spookytown Avenue until at least 2008??

I walk by the 515 storefronts and think of all the cool stores that could go in there. But it'd be pretty stupid to open something knowing how hard street/sidewalk construction hurts a business.

And while these vacancies suck now, the delay does give the Design District time to get off the ground. If the District can get at least a dozen showrooms lined up, ready to open with the completion of the ECP, it will certainly up the ante for neighboring retail along lower Euclid.
