More exciting to me is the redevelopment of the historic old buildings (including the Watermark restaurant location) south of the Main Ave. Bridge.  Coupling this new activity with what's going on in the newer FEB footprint to the north will make FEB a total happening.

^Agreed. I only wish there was talk of  a new streetscape for that area. Remove the utility poles and widen the sidewalks. With that you could then extend the FEB boardwalk not along the river but over to Old River rd. which would connect to Settlers landing and eventually to Canal Basin Park.

Bingo. I actually had this same idea last year, and even posted a rank amateur photoshop of what it would look like. It's really a good idea that would help out existing businesses and facilitate more development. The boardwalk extension would help compel people to venture. Canal Basin would link it to the Towpath, it's got to happen. The current incarnation of the boardwalk looks nice, but since it doesn't go anywhere it doesn't function properly as a connector.

If anything the article points out that businesses like Big Bang, with multiple locations (in relative boomtowns like Nashville and Columbus) are doing more business in Cleveland.

Part of this sometimes comes from developer's relationships.  Not saying that is the case here but often times a developer will have a tenant sign agreements at several properties even though some may be in Cleveland or some other non boom town

I don't think Collision Bend (old Watermark) is open to the public yet, but they did have some sort of event going on last week. Lots of people were inside

They're open.  Went a couple weeks ago, good beer and an amazing patio.  I think this place will be getting verrrry popular this summer.

I stopped by a few weeks ago, too.  Though a much different kind of place, I couldn't help thinking about the classy Watermark that used to be here.  Collision Bend though has retained Watermark's configuration almost totally despite an obvious difference in décor.  Bruell and Purcell have done a nice job; CB is a classy place.  And its so good to see life seeping back in outside of Fairmount's FEB footprint.  These old Victorian buildings are awesome and let's just say it without a hint of arrogance: Milwaukee and other riverfront café settings are very nice, but the Flats are simply unique.

I've been three times already. Although I can't say their beer is that much to my taste, the food, space and location are all excellent. It's been busy too. A group of us went at 6.30 this past Weds and they couldn't seat us for dinner.

The ONLY  downside to my trip to collision Bend was the two hour wait to get a table. But, I would rather see that then the place be empty

I wonder if this will free up enough equity to open the door to financing for Flats East Bank phase 3?

Bellwether Enterprise Real Estate Capital closes $80 million refinance loan for Cleveland’s Flats at East Bank

Bellwether Enterprise Real Estate Capital LLC closed an $80 million refinancing loan for the Flats at East Bank Apartments, a multifamily and mixed-use retail property in downtown Cleveland.

Thirsty Dog Brewing Co. expanding to Cleveland's Flats East bank
Updated on May 24, 2017 at 7:25 AM Posted on May 24, 2017 at 6:30 AM
BY MARC BONA, CLEVELAND.COM mbona@Cleveland.com

CLEVELAND, Ohio - Thirsty Dog Brewing Co. - the oldest and largest brewery in Summit County - is expanding to the Flats.

Thirsty Dog is planning to open a 12,000-square-foot taproom, brewery with 10-barrel brewhouse, restaurant and patio in August. The space formerly held Crop Rocks, Crop Sticks and On Air, a production studio, said brewery owner John Najeway.

He said a banner will hang beginning this weekend. When up and running, the Flats location will brew "some of the same core and seasonal beers we're known for now," he said. "Having the flexibility of a small system, we'll brew some stuff specific to the brewpub."
