It's going bye-bye as is everything in the background......

EDIT: here's a better view of the endangered background:

Ugh. I literally just drove by that thinking "what a nice building if it could be fixed up". Very disappointing. It didn't register to me before that this was the site of that proposed development.

Why do these projects always seem to do the most possible damage? There's 3 or 4 large brick apartment buildings in the footprint that would be demolished if this was built.

Can this be blocked by the planning commission if it goes before them? What frustrates me is we continue to fumble a neighborhood that has great mixed use potential. If they built the Chester part of Midtown up with PROPER mixed use developments (apartments w/retail, hotels etc.) they could create a vibrant neighborhood. Once that is built they could shrink the urban highway that is Chester avenue by placing a streetcar (MAJOR pipe dream) on it that feeds the businesses, apartments and retail that goes there. The side streets of Chester avenue have good historical bones that just need polishing and BOOM you have a great all around neighborhood with character.

I don't mind health/tech companies building there but if the stretch mainly includes offices with one or two apartment projects and no ground level activity then the neighborhood is useless after 5pm. I would have figured they could use Midtown as a spillover from University Circle slowly running out of room and build housing for the doctors, students and tech workers. Midtown can be a place where Health/Tech companies live but buildings with all around use and late night (safe) activity need to outnumber the 9-5 office buildings that are slowly popping up.

Putting this here since there is no thread for Woodland Hills neighborhood. This is a pretty big project across the street from St Luke's Manor along MLK Drive between E.111th and E115th. 76 single family homes, about half market rate and half subsidized. The site plan is good. The houses themselves won't be anything to look at, if they look anything like the ones built next door, but they will probably be affordable.

I had the pleasure of touring St. Luke's a few weeks ago - here's a view of the site from the rooftop, with a bonus skyline view.

Calendar No. 18-113: 2345 East 83 Street Ward 6
Blaine A. Griffin
28 Notices
Catholic Diocese of Cleveland, owner, and Saint Adalbert’s Catholic School, propose to erect a new
Pre-K through first grade, 12,800 square foot school building, including play areas and a 27 space
parking lot on a parcel that is zoned B2 Two-Family Residential District and Multi-Family Residential
District. The owner appeals for relief from the strict application of the following sections of the
Cleveland Codified Ordinances:
1. Section 337.02(f)(3)(A) which states that in residential districts, a school and its accessory
buildings and uses are permitted if approved by the Board of Zoning Appeals after public
notice and public hearing., and if adequate yard spaces and other safeguards to preserve the
character of the neighborhood are provided, and if in the judgment of the Board such
buildings and uses are appropriately located and designed and will meet a community need
without adversely affecting the neighborhood.
2. Section 337.05(f)(3)(A) which states that a public or private school must be located not less
than thirty feet from any adjoining premises in a Residence District; the proposed new school
building and accessory playground is approximately 10 to 14 feet from adjoining premises in
Residence District.
3. Section 357.14 which states that parking is not a permitted encroachment in the required front
yard area on East 83rd St.
4. Section 341.02 which states that Landmark Commission review and approval is required.

Why is a cosmetic surgeon from Newport Beach, Calif. buying up a ton of property around Harvard and Lee roads?

Dr. Robert W. Kessler, MD, FACS is a Newport Beach Plastic Surgeon specializing in cosmetic surgery and has a company called ECP COMMERCIAL IV LLC http://www2.sos.state.oh.us/pls/bsqry/f?p=100:7:0::NO:7:P7_CHARTER_NUM:2382320

He spent $9,375,260 on Aug. 19 buying up about five parcels near that intersection. Those five parcels appear to be the entire Lee-Harvard Plaza shopping center.

Google Earth's time machine shows an apartment building that was torn down in about 2006.  Driveway was at about 1915 Cliffview and there's some online records of that address.

Glad to see that the focus is moving out of the core of Cleveland, some places just need it more.
