This begs the question...how do universities grow to become an OSU or UC in size and prestige? How does CSU become a more academically elite university? I would imagine the answer involves numerous factors and hopefully CSU is heading in the right direction. It would be amazing for CSU to one day be one of the premiere state universities in Ohio, and right in the middle of our downtown core! Is that even possible?

No, not for this thread it doesn't.  You're more than welcome to refer that conversation to this thread, though:

"They should work on a quality faculty and better academics first."
"bolstering the visibility of our already way-too-locally-prominent community college is what the region's taxpayers should be asked to directly support? "
"Studies show that given a sound roof and basic sanitation facilities, the school building itself has little or no effect on the quality of education."
"And if they want a tax increase for routine maineneance, they have mismanaged their facilities."


For the first time in my time on UrbanOhio i had to walk away from the computer.

First, A large metro region should have both a strong, modern, functional CC and a mix of state universities and private colleges. They can all co-exist, they won't hurt each other. Not everyone is going to go for a bachelor's right away, and not everyone SHOULD be at a four year. The trends are showing that more jobs will require at least an associates' or some training and these are decent paying jobs, and that people will be "thinking twice" before sending their kids off to college for 50K in debt. We're already seeing it in Pennsylvania with our state university enrollment (I am aware this isnt the ONLY reason).

Second, I pointed out earlier in the thread that there is STILL a frightening level of disdain for Community Colleges in this part of the country, which has an effect on retention and graduation rates, something that the south and west are killing us at. Why? They have modern facilities, modern programs that fit their areas, and fantastic matriculation agreements and partnerships with their local universities and colleges. We need to get on board with the rest of the country.

Luxury' student housing opens in downtown Cleveland

The lights are going on at the newest downtown Cleveland residential project, the 11-story student housing project called The Edge on Euclid.Early move-ins — before the fall college year — began July 1, according to the developers of the 240-suite complex, CRG, a St. Louis, Mo.-based design-builder, and Koman Group, a real estate developer and owner with offices in St. Louis, Mo., and San Diego.The structure at 1750 Euclid Ave. is described as "luxury student housing" as it offers …

First Off-Campus Student Housing High Rise in Downtown Cleveland Opens for Its Doors
JULY 17, 2017   

CLEVELAND, OH - CRG and The Koman Group have begun leasing for The Edge on Euclid, a luxury housing complex with top-of-the-line amenities and private community spaces. Located directly across from Cleveland State University, the new development neighbors the Playhouse Square District.

The building includes 240 residential suites with a fitness center, lounge, café, study areas and a 163-car secured garage. Each of the one- to four fully furnished bedroom suites include a living room, kitchen, granite countertops, spacious closets, washer/dryer and a private bath for each bedroom.  Outside, tenants can enjoy a private outdoor amenity courtyard and the 11th floor sky deck with spectacular views of University's main campus and the downtown Cleveland area.

More Edge news....

Moving on up: The Edge on Euclid is downtown's first off-campus student housing high-rise.
KARIN CONNELLY RICE | MONDAY, JULY 24, 2017

A 262,000-square-foot, 11-story luxury apartment building is not only the newest addition to the skyline, but the first of its kind in downtown Cleveland—meeting demand for both high-end off-campus student housing and affordable urban apartments for the young professional crowd.
 
Enter the Edge on Euclid (1750 Euclid Ave.), which sits just adjacent to Cleveland State University and Playhouse Square. Along with close proximity to campus and culture, the building also offers a quick commute to schools like Case Western Reserve in University Circle and a central location for recent graduates just launching their careers in Cleveland.
 
The Edge is the first new residential construction project in the Campus District in more than 10 years, according to developers St. Louis-based CRG and San Diego-based Koman Group, which began eyeing the former Jewish Federation property around 2014.

Global X Rehab of 2101 Superior Underway!

Global X has begun their extensive rehabilitation of the historic K.K. Holmes Building on 2101 Superior Ave., also known over the past 25+ years as the “Daffy Dan” building. Once a part of Cleveland’s historic garment district, the building is now being renovated for Global X’s corporate headquarters with two floors to house other businesses.The project is expected to be complete by December 2017. A statement on the project reads: “It is estimated that 139 construction jobs and 15 permanent jobs will be created as a result of this redevelopment project, in addition to the 20 jobs being moved to the Superior Arts Corridor as a result of global X’s relocation.”

While the rehabilitation goes on in 2101 Superior, Daffy Dan’s has moved temporarily into a separate building across Superior. Once completed, Daffy Dan’s is set to return to the building on the first floor, with Global X utilizing the majority of upper floors.

That's such a great looking building.  I'm always amazed at how much lighter the real color of the brick is on these buildings, too.

I forgot all about this development, amongst all the bigger developments in the heart of the CBD. So when I drove past it, I couldn't remember what the project was.

It really is amazing how much is going on in the city right now, especially considering where things were just a few years ago.

I go to Columbus often and it's really impressive seeing all those cranes in the air. Upon further investigation though, a lot of those buildings are only six stories. Similar in size to the majority of new apartments/developments getting built here.

Imagine if there was a crane over every midrise building going up here. That would look pretty cool.

I didn't realize Daffy Dan was still a thing. I remember one of his suburban stores near me growing up but it's no longer. He has been lax with his marketing of recent - he probably was ahead of his time now that you have Homage, CLE Clothing Company, etc.

I've noticed that same thing in Columbus. A lot of mid-rise buildings that you look at and wonder "why is there a crane? It's only 5-6 stories high". Are there regional building methods/codes that would drive a developer in Columbus to use a crane where if the same building was built in Cleveland there wouldn't be one?

There was a good conversation going on in the Centric thread about "4 over 1" and "5 over 2" construction for these 5-7 floor apartment buildings.  Note that in the photos there's a crane for that one as well.

Is there prefabrication? If so, you'll need a crane to haul the components. It's also easier to just lift materials up by crane than by a service elevator.

It's not about the height as much as it is the site size, and the constraints of staging a crane, and being able to boom out.  If you rememebr, Stonebridge in Cleveland was 12 stories, but was still able to go without a tower crane.  There was plenty of room to move a crane around and boom.  You could have a super tight site however with building on either side that require a crane to be above the site versus on it.  Snavely project on 25th and Detroit had to be darn close to needing a tower crane as the utilized that whole site.

Site constraints are what I believe it comes down to. Most of the Columbus sites are right on High Street, which is their main thoroughfare and right in the dense university district and busy downtown area.

And for this reason I give Cleveland all the credit in the world for the flowering and exciting CSU campus district.  Unlike Short North and University District, Columbus is the near 150-year old home to internationally-renowned OSU which has 58,000 students who have historically been residential.  Cleveland/CSU created something out of pretty much nothing.  Until only a decade or so ago, CSU was a cold, concrete commuter-student jungle.  It was a dead zone of fast foods and honky-tonk rip-off joints not really catering to students immediately after Playhouse Square.  Those converted mixed-use apt/retail buildings a decade ago at 1900 Euclid was a start... Now it is a lush residential college town of green grass, lots of budding student apartments and dorms and bright, increasingly lively commercial district of old and new mixed use buildings.  The movement between PHS and CSU is becoming almost seamless (save the gaudy archway screaming Playhouse Square).  The Edge is already up and running and soon (X your fingers) we'll have the 32-story PHS apt tower which will further spill over into Campus District... It's all good!

It amazes me to see the transformation at CSU from when I was a freshmen there in 2010.  We had the annual Ohio Land Bank conference at the Wyndham (Crowne Plaza) last week and I took a walk that way just to check out the changes I knew occurred.  It was packed, pedestrian activity everywhere, and not just from classes letting out.  The places that have filled in along Euclid and the added density that is taking place, it was so nice to see.  It's obviously not just Euclid as Chester has changed so much as well with student housing and eateries and the new engineering building, and it seems like Chester is about to see a lot more growth.  I remember we would always head down to University Circle to that former Mexican restaurant that is now a 5-story? apartment building, and it's hard to think in just 6 or 7 years it was all just massive surface parking lots along the Healthline stops in Uptown, but that's discussion for another area and another thread.  Walking back to the hotel it was nice to see continual activity from CSU, PHS, all the way down to 9th.

I actually showed a friend from out of town around Cleveland this weekend and took him down both Euclid and Chester in the campus district. He's used to gorgeous campuses so I was surprised when he started talking about how pretty CSU's campus was and how active/alive the area seemed. He was puzzled by the giant empty lot in such an important location across from Burgers 2 Beer but other than that he seemed very impressed. It was good confirmation that I'm not just looking at the recent changes in the area with rose-tinted glasses.

I actually showed a friend from out of town around Cleveland this weekend and took him down both Euclid and Chester in the campus district.

Lol you mean the circular gravel path? That isn't beautiful to you?

We need to get rid of those concrete/plastic pyramids, and just completely redo the communications building... It's an eyesore and it looks like prison from the outside.
Don't waste my development money...

The site of a beautiful historic building that the school tore down.  But hey the gravel path looks great .

I graduated from CSU in 2000.  I had classes in the following buildings:

Urban Affairs College- torn down and replaced by Glickman-Miller Hall
Corlett Building (pictured above) - also torn down and replaced by Glickman-Miller Hall
Main Classroom Building- completely gutted and renovated

When I attended, the only official dorms were Viking Hall.  I lived in unofficial student housing at Heritage Suites, above the Y.  Other students thought I was weird for living on campus.  Now that is official student housing, Viking Hall is gone, and about 2-3000 students live on or near campus.  It's like a whole different school.  And I haven't even touched on the fact that when I attended there were almost no foreign students.

I might be wrong but I believe your numbers are actually low.

When Berkman arrived at CSU, 900 students lived on campus and another 600-700 in the campus district.

As of last year (unless I am wrong, which I could be), I believe of CSU's 17,500 full time students, approximately 4,500 live in the Campus District. Berkman has said openly that he would like to get the enrollment of the school to around 25,000 with at least 10,000 living "on campus."

^ That 4,500 number seems high to me. It could be right but it just seems off.
