Whenever I see renderings of people in them, I chuckle. 'Look how lively it looks'. Yeah well if you knew a thing or two about cleveland we only come out at night and in the summer. Also I don't really like the color palette.  Its too 'vanilla' as vanilla was big in the 60's and 70's with oak... Really not too fond of it.

Good God. That's supposed to be the same place?! Man, you all got sold a dream! Brought to you by Syke Development Corp.

That should warrant serious fines but they probably have the city in their pocket, anyway.

It looks exactly like the rendering... The skin of the building hasn't been put on obviously, but it is still under construction. Your comment makes no sense, though I'm not surprised by that.

What are you talking about?  It's not even close to being done.  They clearly still have to do the outside, so how about a breath and let them finish.

Downtown Cleveland office structure renovated into stylish 1900 Euclid Lofts: Apartment of the week
Updated on Mar 28, 2018 at 07:07 AM EDT
By Anne Nickoloff, cleveland.com

CLEVELAND, Ohio - Back in the day, 1900 Euclid existed as an office building in downtown Cleveland across from Cleveland State University. In 2002, the building was renovated to house 80 apartments.

The building is located directly across the street from CSU's Drinko Hall and just down the street from Playhouse Square. Public Square is a 20-minute walk away.

Public Square is a 20 minute walk away?   The writer must be one of those slow-walkers I'm always dodging around!

You can always tell the walkers from the non-walkers by how they walk -- or write.

Or she has never actually completed that walk and is relying on Google Maps, which I find is set to "Grandmother Speed" for walking directions.

Actually, I typically budget 20 minutes to walk the same distance from my office to the courthouse.  Sure, it would be less if I just factored in the time it took me to walk from the front door of my building to the front door of the courthouse, but most people aren't.  And I'm a fairly quick walker. 

Google maps says that it is exactly 1 mile from 1900 Euclid to Public Square.  Most people walk between 1-2 miles per hour, so that 20 minutes seems accurate enough.  It's far enough that a bus ride would be welcome many days.

It's about 4500 feet from there to the center of public square.. At 3.1 mph which is not exactly slow, it would take 16:31 to go that far and that's if you never have to stop at an intersection. Google gives 18 minutes for the trip. Seems reasonable.

The finishes in those apartments are really bad and beige. How did the designer drop the ball on that.  :(

I'm guessing beige was in for 2002.  Hard to believe these are already 16 years old.

Ick - that carpeting!  And the tiny kitchen with crappy cabinets and laminate countertops is hardly "lush"

Where is MTS to comment on this?  I miss his snark.

Does anyone know what ever happened to MTS. He hasn't posted for awhile.

This area has huge potential.   It looks like things are happening.   Btw, I've seen the plans for 2125 Superior.   It'll be a cool project and it's nearly fully funded.

2101 Superior, GBX's new hqs, is pictured in the cited gallery. It looks oddly incomplete at the roofline. Is it missing its original cornice?
There's nothing wrong with optimism, as long as you don't get your hopes up.

It looks like there is a cornice one story below the roof line.  Maybe cornice isn't the correct term but it is a horizontal element.  I should've paid more attention in my design class.

Prospect Avenue to gain new apartments
June 17, 2018 4:01 am UPDATED 36 MINUTES AGO
By STAN BULLARD

Columbus-based Woda Cooper Cos. is starting to rebuild the five-story Stuyvesant Building near Cleveland State University as 42 apartments in a $10 million project, but it's taking a different tack from the plethora of rentals being added downtown.

The building at 1937 Prospect Ave., to be called Prospect Yard, is being financed with low-income and affordable tax credits so it will provide downtown housing for $354 to $860 monthly far less than the going rate of $1,000 monthly. Prospective tenants will be people with annual incomes ranging from $15,000 to $40,000, although actual rents and income will vary due to the number of people in the household.

Joseph McCabe, vice president of development for Woda Cooper, said in an interview that the project will benefit workers in downtown hotels, restaurants and bars, and other businesses who want to live near work, especially if they do not own a car.
