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.

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??

The former First Methodist Church at 3000 Euclid Ave. was put up for sale. A beautiful building, hopefully gets a full adaptive re-use.

Historic Euclid Avenue church headed to auction, with minimum sale price of $250,000 (photos)



CLEVELAND, Ohio - The sanctuary at the historic First Methodist Church on Euclid Avenue is poised to draw a crowd Thursday unlike any in the building's 113-year history.

Real estate investors, not congregants, will fill the gently curving pews at 11 a.m.

Their calling won't be to pray, but to bid.

The church, at Euclid and East 30th Street, and the adjacent school building are up for auction. They'll sell as long as someone offers at least $250,000 - the "reserve," or minimum, price set by the congregation.

It's possible a Cleveland landmark with a berth on the National Register of Historic Places will be purchased for less than the median sale price of a house in Beachwood or Rocky River.

Of course, auctioneer Michael Berland and the church's leaders, now merged into the University Circle United Methodist Church, hope the bidding will yield a much higher figure.

"We're very confident that there will be a winning bidder at or above the minimum bid, so the property will go under contract ... Thursday," Berland said, adding that the sale then will occur by March 29.

Developers have looked at the buildings, on just shy of an acre, for apartments, offices, schools and other conversion projects, said Berland and Mark Abood of Hanna Commercial Real Estate, which has been marketing the property. But the combination of the dramatic sanctuary, with a ceiling that approaches 100 feet, and the school building, constructed in the mid-1960s as offices behind the church, has proved daunting.

Both structures are empty. The First United Methodist Church congregation left in early 2010, after merging with the smaller Epworth-Euclid United Methodist Church and moving to Epworth-Euclid's higher-profile building - often referred to as the "Holy Oil Can" - at Chester Avenue and East 107th Street.

Don't be surprised to see a distillery. Misgivings aside, he's a smart businessman. I've talked to his counsel on numerous occasions and they always note that he's wanted to do a distillery.

MidTown is abuzz with the March opening of Tech Hive


Banking on the growing coworking trend, the hope is that when the MidTown Tech Hive opens on Thursday, March 1, it will become a cooperative gathering place for great minds to bring innovative ideas—offering a sense of community and an emphasis on tech education.

“We’re really excited about the Hive coming to the neighborhood,” says MidTown Cleveland executive director Jeff Epstein. “It will bring a lot of energy [and] a lot of people to the neighborhood. It’s been part of the plan for the area for several years.”

The Tech Hive is the brainchild of DigitalC co-founder and former CEO Lev Gonick and director of place Joan Chase. Last year, the two began dreaming of a community-driven coworking space where technology-focused businesses could form and blossom in the Health-Tech Corridor and beyond.

The $2 million project (of which the City of Cleveland is providing $744,000) is designed to create a digitally literate population in MidTown and bring the city to the forefront in technology and innovation.

a distillery in there is a decent idea for an awkward space like that actually.

before i got married i was going to buy a pretty little church in the heart of uptown westerville to live in. that would have been a different path taken for sure lol.
