Interesting item on next week's GCRTA board agenda:

http://www.riderta.com/sites/default/files/pdf/presentations/BoardAgenda_11-21-17.pdf
2017-100 - Authorizing the Greater Cleveland Regional Transit Authority to enter into a puchase and sale agreement with Little Italy Development LLC, an Ohio Limited Liability Company, for the purchase of land in fee simple and two permanent easements located at the Little Italy-University Circle Rapid Transit Station and power substation, Cleveland, Ohio for $139,500.00

Little Italy Development LLC is Terry Coyne's company, but also has as partners the Geis and Asher families. They sold 1.2 acres of land to GCRTA for $860,000. I sure hope that Little Italy Development LLC isn't getting all 1.2 acres back for just $139,500! http://www.cleveland.com/metro/index.ssf/2013/08/land_purchase_clears_way_for_c.html

This is what Coyne/Geis/Asher proposed there: http://www.terrycoyne.com/ourproperties/detail_printable.asp?id=271

Wonder how this affects Tim Perotti's proposed 40-unit apartment building next to the station, fronting Mayfield. Perhaps @mjarboe has some insight?

I hope they change it so that it fronts the street better and doesn't completely block off traffic going through that road/parking lot.

Hi,
Interesting item on next week's GCRTA board agenda:
....
Little Italy Development LLC is Terry Coyne's company, but also has as partners the Geis and Asher families. They sold 1.2 acres of land to GCRTA for $860,000. I sure hope that Little Italy Development LLC isn't getting all 1.2 acres back for just $139,500!

First of all, thank you so much for all your posts and sharing your knowledge.
I'm confused with which parcels this agreement is in reference too. Doesn't the Little Italy Development LLC already own the long parcel next to the station?

It looks like Little Italy Development LLC would acquire the grassy strip between the parking lot and the tracks, north of the station headhouse (entry and substation). If so, looks like every inch of land not being used by RTA here is part of some development. Land really is a premium here.

My mistake. I have since learned that GCRTA is buying this land and easement FROM Little Italy Development LLC so that GCRTA can build a new power substation here.

My reaction? It looks like a military-style office building that doesn't want to be a part of the neighborhood.

I didn't realize the bar could get this low for newly designed architecture.  It's like they got the plans from an Ollie's.

I actually like the office-building design. The window pattern makes a very interesting view from inside the units.

http://planning.city.cleveland.oh.us/landmark/agenda/2017/12072017/image/2087_Random_IMG_26.jpg

The street presence is awful though. When I see metal gates and walled-off elevations, I assume they are trying to address security concerns. There has to be a way to "friendly up" the design. Whether that's putting the garage below grade and elevating the first floor above the garage, or simply putting an apartment on the first floor along the sidewalk.

Renderings are usually supposed to help sell/promote a project, so I find that the real thing rarely looks as good as the renderings. That's not a good sign for this project where even the renderings look bad.

If this was on Mayfield or Murray Hill I'd say no way.   But Random's always been kind of.......well, you know.

Fits in as well as the awful Case dorms from the 1960s and 70s nearby.  Would love to see pictures of what was lost to make those monstrous blocks on north and south campus 50 years ago.

That's where I lived for a semester and a half LOL, I had a Murray Hill Road address.  Edgehill/Cornell was always considered the borderline between the campus and LI.

I don't remember seeing these posted anywhere else and I looked back to Pg 21 of this thread. Is this a newly proposed project? This is from a Zillow listing...

^KJP, check page 20 of the thread...it appears the design has changed.

Are these finally ready to go?

By the way, what ever happen to the modern condo proposal for the  Primo Vino site right by this project?

It seems like Little Italy is on the cusp of booming when it comes to residential infill at the current moment.  What does Quattro's site look like now next to Tony Brush Park?  Is 12302 Mayfield Road under site prep?  I know there is a hold up with the project next to the LI Red Line station.  It seems like in the next two years there will be so many more residents on the border of Little Italy and Uptown.
