Banyan Tree looks to have closed their shop in Uptown. Hopefully retail will do a little better once the new apartments in the neighborhood get built. It appeared as if ground was already being broke around the corner for the Centric Project this afternoon.

That's the second small women's apparel shop that's failed in that location.  'Ann Von H' (or something like that) was the first.

Anyone know what's going on at 11702 Euclid the old food co-op site across from the speech center. There is a case report at design review listing Vocon as the company which I assume is the architect. Was that the site for CIA student housing maybe?

Can someone post a pic of the Construction projects underway in University Circle? I'm live out of town and enjoy keeping up with the construction projects. In the mean time. I'll search for active web cams.

Thanks in advance.

Looks good. Much better than the concept images from a couple months ago.

Love the density, terrible building

Well those are...small windows...the facade materials, which will undoubtedly be low quality, will be so much more on display.

^have to agree.  Also, remembering my college days, that room rental idea is asking for more problems than they can anticipate.  As a private landlord do you really want to put yourself in a position where you might have to be a conflict resolution counselor?
It's becoming a common business model around college campuses.

Being that you have some insight into this type housing, do you think it's a good investment? Increases the up-front costs and makes it harder for first timers I would assume.

(sorry for the late response, but had to jump back in...)

Regarding this being a good investment... Euclid 116 advertises its 4 bedroom apartment as their "best value". It's 1,228 sq ft and $950/month per bedroom. That's a total of $3,800/month or $3.09 per square foot. That's the most expensive residential real estate in the city! Yes, it's furnished, but I doubt it's that high end considering this is student housing. So yes, I'd say it's a good investment.

^^^Function over form.  I love the high-density residences this building brings -- this area needs them -- and the way the building crowds the sidewalks on Euclid and E. 116th.  Not every project is going to be perfect.

It looks as if the window size is in deference to the existing building across the street.

^I drove by this project today.  You guys might like the density but I don't know how this piece of s@$t got pass design review.  The windows and doors look even cheaper in person and there is now this awful red brick at the base going up about 1 1/2 stories which is flat and lifeless, almost fortress like.

Yeah it is to the sidewalk unlike what was there before but it is going to be a wart on Euclid for years to come.

I grew up in a 1970's "colonial" tract house that had storm windows attached to the outside of the primary window frame, causing them to protrude and look generally kind of weird. The windows on this building look very similar.

It looks like they've pushed the windows out so they'll be in plane with whatever the exterior materials are (isn't it a mix of brick and stucco?). Which is a crap design choice as far as aesthetics and is asking for those cheap windows to leak the moment the cheap flashing fails or is installed wrong which it likely is since that is consistently a major problem for these new buildings. It's a shame it couldn't be built to better standards. Plenty of high quality buildings are going up all over town of this scale but this one is falling way short.

Blech.

I remember making comments about this building when it was just a couple elevation renderings and stating it would turn out terribly and receiving some pushback. I really hope it's more clear now that it is a truly trash building. Everything about it is wrong or off.

Hopefully some "world class" retail signage will be placed in that blank area between the first and second floors, which could improve the overall look a bit.
