While on the HealthLine at the East 36th station, I noticed fencing around a couple of buildings and snapped this picture. Why is the lovely 3-story building on the right being demolished and not rehabbed! The Stockbridge Apartments (just beyond it) isn't part of whatever is happening here -- thankfully.

The plans were explicitly for a parking lot.

^ A small update to the sale of the Masonic Temple last spring. Dancing Wheels is moving out to another building up the road on Euclid. Not much new information about the redevelopment of the complex, however.

Dancing Wheels sets in motion plan to relocate after sale of Masonic Temple

CLEVELAND, Ohio - Cleveland's Dancing Wheels is rolling down the street. Six blocks west, to be precise. On Sunday, the company announced plans to relocate from the Masonic Temple and Performing Arts Center to a ground-level facility at 3030 Euclid Ave.
...
Last spring, Dancing Wheels was informed that Masonic Temple had been sold to a private developer and that it, along with other resident groups including the Singing Angels, would have to leave its headquarters of nearly 20 years. The initial deadline to move was February, but Verdi-Fletcher said she negotiated for May.

And lastly, the Warner & Swasey complex is going up for sale again, this time without $13 million in federal funds that were earmarked for redevelopment. What are the odds this actually gets rehabbed without that money? Seems like it's fate was sealed when the city redirected the money to the Geis development a couple blocks away.

Warner & Swasey complex in Cleveland's Midtown hits the market again



CLEVELAND, Ohio -- The city of Cleveland is taking yet another run at finding a developer for the vacant Warner & Swasey complex in Midtown, four years after the last potential deal fizzled.

On Wednesday, the city issued a request for proposals from potential suitors for the 221,727-square-foot cluster of buildings, located at 5701 Carnegie Ave. The deadline for submissions is March 23.

The Warner & Swasey Co., which built telescopes and machine lathes, occupied the site for more than a century. The company constructed a five-story, reddish-brown building just east of East 55th Street between 1904 and 1910. The city purchased the property in 1991 and demolished the westernmost part of the complex.

Most of the buildings have been empty for almost three decades.

In 2010, Cleveland-based Hemingway Development stepped forward with a plan to transform the buildings into offices and labs, along with warehousing and possible manufacturing space. At the time, the city was willing to sell the complex for only $1, in exchange for making something happen on the prominent, 3.1-acre site.

If there's no development money/incentives attached, the RFP will be met with yawns. Too bad, since it's built like a brick sh!thouse.

^ Even beyond the usual incentives? The RFP explicitly mentions the common ones - historic preservation credits, TIF, NMTC, etc.

It's a great building, no doubt, and at least it's not on the demo-list (at least I hope it isn't!).

OK, but why are you saying you "found this" sign when the real thing already exists??
