You should be able to open this link - showing all the houses with addresses 1411-1499 East Boulevard and multiple photos of some:

The first house shown was quite distinctive - probably unique in Cleveland.  The others look like many that are or were on Magnolia Drive, Juniper Road, Hazel Drive, Wade Park Avenue, East Boulevard in Glenville, streets between Euclid and Forest Hill Avenue or Terrace Road, etc. I think they were all up a slight rise from the street which gave them a more imposing image.

Some of the houses on Juniper and Magnolia ended up being fraternity houses.  I'm not sure if they are there anymore.  I know some of the ones on Bellflower are gone.

Thanks for posting that link, lafont!  I had previously only seen aerial views of those houses.

Regarding the Brutalist long, serpantine apartment building along East Boulevard between Wade Park and Ashbury Avenues - I had heard it's to be replaced by some other sort of residential structure or structures - condos, townhouses, or whatever.  Does anyone have information on this?  The concrete building, planned a luxury apartments facing the park, replaced some ten substantial houses that had mainly fallen into less-than-ideal uses/condition.  I have photos of them all, if anyone wants to see.

Market rate? This property would be a great opportunity to not only extend University Circle north, but to create new market rate housing along Rockefeller Park and the Cultural Gardens. It could even lead to the renovation of several of the apartment building just north of it.

developer breaks ground on only for-sale residential project in university circle
WEDNESDAY, JANUARY 22, 2014

The developers behind University Place Townhomes, a 19-unit project on E. 118th Street in University Circle, have broken ground on their new project. With two sales in hand, they're laying the foundation and intend to start vertical construction in the spring.

"The demographic is pretty much what we thought it would be," says Russell Lamb, a principal with Allegro Realty and partner in the project, which includes several Allegro principals. "The buyers are either people who work in the Circle, particularly medical institutions, people who want to move back to an urban environment who are downsizing, or young professionals."

Projects popping up that we never even had threads for.  Just buried in an overall UC Construction thread.  8 years ago, we would have had a separate 10 page thread for the above project throwing out terms like "silver bullet" and "Chicagoesgue".  Great news overall!

^ These units were announced about 9 months ago and have been in MLS almost as long. Developers must be pretty patient if they only sold 2 units in that time.

By "for-sale project" I assume they mean a project with units currently for sale?  If they mean a project of homes to purchase, rather than to rent, I'm certain that isn't correct because both the townhouses along the railroad tracks, and the colored section of the complex at the corner of Euclid Avenue and East 118th Street are individually owned townhouses.

A for-sale housing development/project means housing units that people can buy rather than rent only.

I think they should figure how to get listed on this website: http://www.highrises.com/cleveland/university-circle-condos/

But they did make it on the official UC website: http://www.universitycircle.org/locations/category/condominium-townhomes

So aren't the two projects I mentioned "for-sale projects?"  I'm sure they are and, if the writer meant salable housing, how could Freshwater Cleveland get it wrong?  :roll:

They were finished a few years ago and have been sold out and even resold for awhile now. I think when they say they are the only "for sale project" they mean currently under construction and for sale for the first time. Once a project has been completed/sold out it is no longer a "project", just like the 100 year old houses are no longer "for sale projects".

Okay - I suppose the word "project" should be replaced by "complex" once the construction is completed.  That's what I thought the article meant - available real estate. 8-)

What happened to the project to add special lighting to those median strips along Euclid from around East 107th eastward?  It looks like wires were buried and that's it.  What will the lighting be like, if they every install it?

^Well technically it'll probably be in its own thread, but yeah, we'll be discussing it if anything happens. It was a proposal by UCI, but right now it's just a proposal.

Last week a sidewalkshed/scaffolding went up outside the Commodore apt bldg for facade repair to the Euclid Ave side.
Saturday, a man evadinng police jumped out of an 8th floor window but did not immediately perish because his fall was tempered by the Subway awning and the sidewalk shed.
Bac (restaurant from Tremont) will put their eastside spot on the ground floor of this building (b/t Circle Conveinence and Subway, i've been told)

Does anyone know if the exterior will be restored at all - e.g. more historic looking windows?  This was, after all, one of the five luxury apartment-hotels built around the same time in the University Circle area and it used to look a lot better.

The exterior of the former Sovereign, which also is not regular market-rate apartments, has been entirely restored and looks great.  I know - not the same entity was behind it, I suppose.

I dont know the answer though about his fate

Has anyone heard anything recently about the proposed pedestrian bridge connecting this building with the art museum? I haven't heard it mentioned in a couple years.
