Cleveland: Lakefront Development and News
« on: June 05, 2004, 01:19:20 PM »
Green areas are proposed housing, blue is under construction, yellow is completed, and red is the original downtown housing.


Three new districts will be in place when the lakefront development is finished


Near term and long term plans for the harbor front


The Harbor Campus District


btw the new ferry could possibly look like this


The new main street called "Rock'n'Roll Blvd" with street cars in the center lanes. (not sure if ODOT is going to support the street cars, but we'll see)



The final look to the downtown residential districts


Cleveland needs this more than it needs anything else.  While only about half of the lakefront will be developed in the near future its still a major asset to keep this city alive.  3 new downtown districts would spur so much more growth in the city.

i think thats going to be the tourist street that leads to north coast harbor... lol

See what i dont inderstand is why they dont expand eastward towards Burk Lakefront Airport.  Theres huge pieces of land (and parts being filled in) around the small craft run ways(to the north of them, not in the plane's path or anything) .  It isnt like its a noisy airport... heh unless you count SkyFox lifting off from there every morning...

Council OKs deal to take dock for public space
Thursday, August 12, 2004
Olivera Perkins

Cleveland City Council Wednesday approved a deal with the port authority that allows Mayor Jane Campbell to move forward with her plan to redevelop Cleveland's lakefront.

The lease arrangement with the Cleveland-Cuyahoga County Port Authority allows the city to turn Dock 32, just north of Cleveland Browns Stadium, into public space.

City Council last month put off a vote on the deal after the longshoremen's union argued that losing a dock would reduce storage space and lead to fewer ships coming to Cleveland.

But city officials and the director of the Port Authority have said there would be enough space for cargo, even after eliminating Dock 32...

well good, i was hoping this lakefront area would be developed.  Theres just a surface lot and a underused warehouse just sitting there.  I hope more than a park comes of this since theres so much land.  Arent condos planned for this?  They should build some 30+ story condos right behind the browns stadium.  That would be awesome.

y'all should check out FerrariEnzos links.  Cleveland has a really aggressive planning effort underway for its waterfront.  

If they pull it off Cleveland should easily equal Chicago and Milwaulkee for a nice parklike lakefront (I see they are using Milwaulkee as a model a bit).

I hate this reporter.  his articles are pessimistic as hell and in his picutre he looks like a smug sob.

Lakefront plan has many flaws
Sunday, October 24, 2004

After working more than two years and consuming many yards of yellow tracing paper, a team of consultants is nearly finished with the first major plan for Cleveland's lakefront in half a century.

We should be ecstatic, right? Well, sorry, but this is not the moment of elation it should be.
 
     
The plan, which is headed for one more round of public hearings in November before heading to the City Planning Commission and City Council for approval and adoption, isn't a disaster.

But it's hardly a triumph, either...

I'll say this much about Steven Litt:

1. I've made attempts to contact him but he never returns emails. For someone who writes that not enough "young" (aka under 60) people care about Cleveland's built environment, you'd think he'd be proactive to contact those of us who give a rat's ass.

2. Paul_In_Cleveland from SSP sent him an email for info to help his "Downtown Cleveland Building Projects" site - Litt chastized him and asked him if he contacted the PD for permission to use the images of the projects.

3. Comes off as smug in his articles? Yeah, I suppose he does.

But, having said all that, he's grown on me - I've learned to appreciate the fact that he does try to get Clevelanders out of the "well, we can't demand too much - after all, this IS Cleveland" mentality. As far as this article, I'd say he makes good points about moving the port just to move it. I think that a lot of thought has gone into the lakefront near downtown, but that the areas near Edgewater are treated like afterthoughts - I mean, putting the port (with all the truck traffic) on a 35mph boulevard?

This is the only district that will be both on the west and east sides.  Lots of potential, but its shitty that this is gonna take decades, if it ever gets completely finished

What are the components to Cleveland's lakefront plan? How much will it cost? Are there renderings? Is it like Chicago's lakefront? Will it happen or not in your opinion?

Here's a couple of other links. The first is the city's page about it, including PowerPoint presentations of what is being considered. The second is from the PD, offering news updates and analysis of the plan plus more graphics.

I saw an interesting blurb in the news today about the new sewer project. It says that we will be digging new tunnels and that we will have enough dirt to fill dump trucks that would form a chain from Cleveland to Seattle.  Ronayne says that he hopes to use the dirt to fill in parts of the lake for the park extensions that were proposed by the new lakefront plan.  The article didn't say that a deal was completed to use the dirt in such a fashion.  Anyways, I am glad that there is hope for those plans.

It's getting harder and harder to not view these unveilings as "Look what Mayor Campbell did, and don't forget to vote!" events, but good news is good news even if it's not really "news," I guess.

I understand what you mean...but it's still exciting!  The real stuff will come into play at the debates that have been taking place at least once a week.  The next one's tomorrow at the Levin College Forum at CSU.

Unfortunately, I forgot my camera today, so there will be no pics from me from this "announcement."  I'll post my review, though, once I get back!
