Is construction about to begin on the new school where Max Hayes stood? The dirt looks freshly disturbed and there's a couple of large construction vehicles on site. I saw it while passing by on the Shoreway so I couldn't get a good look, so perhaps someone else can provide more insight.

Don't know much more, but yes, they've been moving dirt around on this week for the first time in 6+ months. Nothing more than moving dirt around (no foundation, excavating, etc)

I haven't taken pictures. But I live about 1,000 feet away - they're not done, but there are now people living in some of the units. Which baffles me.

Seems somewhat common. OUC had a multiphase lease as she me apartments became available sooner. The Halle build My will as well.

It was just funny, I was walking by the other day, and a man and woman were lounging on their porch reading whilst construction crews carried on two floors beneath them

That is pretty funny. Probably a little noisy.

Tweets by @mjarboe today....

Checked out the @MusicSettlement’s new space in #CLE’s Ohio City this morning, at the Quarter project at West 25th and Detroit. Early childhood education starts in August. Music instruction and music therapy kick off in September.










Also, here are some photos of the residential lobby and apartments at the Quarter. Renters started moving in two weeks ago. Roughly 60 percent leased. Ground floor space will house @MusicSettlement, the Grocery and a furniture showroom. Co-working and food hall across the street.

^ The music settlement is a great asset. I was looking at their layout and on their website. It seems like a fairly large space. I also see that there's a playground? I wonder if that's just for the music settlement or anyone who lives in the building? The area is becoming more attractive to families. With the newly constructed Waverly Elementary and Middle School, upcoming new West Side High School, St Igs, Irishtown Bend and Edgewater the area could really attract millennial families and maybe families who don't live in the city. This is an important demographic that our city needs to appeal to. You always hear people say that they can't raise kids in Cleveland.

People are raising families in ohio city and its making homes in the neighborhood wildly expensive.  Lots of families want to live there but are priced out.

Also, Fresh Brewed Tees is taking over the old Whiskey/Grade location:

^I think the Urban Community School on Lorain is a popular choice.  While its mission is to serve low income students on the near west side I have know a number of Ohio City professionals who sent their kids there.   A client of mine was on the board and I have been impressed by the school for years.

Urban Community School is expanding like crazy and construction has started on the new near westside high school where May Hayes used to be.

Hawken is planning an Early Childhood Center near Gordon Square. They own the property but I think they are still gauging the market.

There's not a ton of attractive optitons for families in the city proper besides OHC, Tremont, Edgewater, Detroit Shoreway area.  University Circle/Little Italy and MidTown has potential and is becoming more attractive. The urban infill homes are relatively affordable, and there's a lot of family friendly things to do over there. There's a few decent schools over there as well. There's always Old Brooklyn, Kamm's, and Shaker Square too. I don't know a ton about those except that Shaker Square can send kids to Shaker Schools, but isn't that mainly apartments? I think that the inner west side and University Circle area are the most attractive for younger people, and for families which will make them really expensive unfortunately. There needs to be more homes being built under 250K. There's not many around in Ohio City.

Campus International on the CSU campus is popular school choice too especially for families that work downtown. A friend of mine who lived in OC sent his son there before relocating to Columbus.

Also prep schools in Shaker such as US, HB and Laurel draw from the near west side. Not huge numbers given the cost but I know several families who use that option

Why is this racist? Is it because the neighborhoods he listed are on the west side?  I've worked with many young people who live in east side neighborhoods such as Hough. They have to deal with things everyday no child should have to encounter. Their families live there because of poverty not because it's a great place to live.  Perhaps I misunderstood your response.

I misspoke. There aren't many attractive neighborhoods for millennial families who value experiences and amenities. It was more classicism than racism, which is is still bad - I admit and I apologize. I guess racism and classicism go hand-in-hand though. Unfortunately many of our neighborhoods are not desirable to many families.

Well UC, Little Italy, and MidTown are east side, but I digress. Wasn't trying to sir anything up.

Looks like they're definitely doing some subsurface infrastructure (waterlines/sewers?) work.

I am bad at images on here, but the Landmarks agenda is out for this week. Knez is proposing to build a pretty cool (and dense!) little development on the small lot at 4241 Lorain. This is the type of stuff that has me hopeful for the numerous missing teeth along Lorain and other commercial corridors

Cool! Here it is.....

http://planning.city.cleveland.oh.us/landmark/agenda/2018/05102018/index.php

Case 18-031
Lorain Avenue Historic District
4247 Lorain Avenue
New Commercial-Residential Building

Ward 3
McCormack

Hannah Cohan Plessner
B. R. Knez Construction





















Update. The graphics quoted look like six residential units are proposed and no parking garage. Has the plan changed?

http://planning.city.cleveland.oh.us/bza/agenda/2018/crr07-30-2018.pdf

9:30
Calendar No. 18-159: 4247 Lorain Ave. Ward 3
Kerry McCormack
18 Notices
B.R. Knez proposes to construct a new “Live-Work” building with 27 residential units, a 30 car
parking garage and commercial space on a City of Cleveland Land Bank lot in a D3 Local Retail
Business District and a Pedestrian Retail Overlay District (PRO). The owner appeals for relief from the
strict application of the following sections of the Cleveland Codified Ordinances:
1. Section 343.01 which states that unspecified “Live Work” use is not permitted in a Local Retail
Business District but first permitted in Live work District per chapter 346.
2. Sections 349.04(a)&(f) which states that 7 off-street parking spaces are required and 2
parking spaces are proposed.
3. Section 355.04 which states that the maximum gross floor area of building in a ‘D’ area district
shall not exceed the total lot area; or in this case 3,217 square feet are permitted and 5,521
square feet are proposed. (Filed July 11, 2018)
