The Clevelander now does have a banner over that old signage that says something like 'pardon our dust, we're under construction'


Saw a "Keith Arian Construction" sign go up in the window at the Picadiilly artisan yogurt in OC.
THen a few days later the old Indigo restaurant-- Prospect ave side of the 5th street arcades -- evidently had some interior demo going on in that long-vacant space... the next day a Keith Arian Construction sign went up in the window. Wondering if there's a connection

This is a guess but I think Sushi 86 is moving into the old Indigo restaurant space.  I know they were one of the 5th Street Arcade grant winners and said they'd be using it to expand, offer classes, etc.  They can't expand their current spot.  Makes sense for them to move to another former restaurant space.  Lots more room in there.

Sushi 86 is not moving, they are expanding though to have more space for their burgeoning catering business and sushi classes.  Current spot will be retained.

From http://www.indiegogo.com/projects/sushi-86-the-chef-s-cut:

"The time for expansion has come and rather than move our new facility off site we have decided to delve deeper into the facilities of the 5th Street Arcades and all it has to offer. We will be occupying a space across the hallway; our whole sale facilities will be in the back; and in the front we will have an all new expanded space for sushi classes, private dining room, and event space. This expansion will allow us to increase our capacity, helping us to sponsor more charitably and community building events around the area."

No real news here but just an update about the new businesses occcupying now-vacant storefronts.
On Prospect, Sushi 86 expansion will go in the Indigo space, and thensome. Of course, Red will fill a sizable front on Prospect.
On Euclid ave, the owner of Pour Cleveland said yesterday he was looking to open in about 3 weeks. And also on Euclid, the build-out of the prepared food/takeout place...CLE (Cmon Lets Eat) has started in the old Quiznno's space.
Great to see these street facing properties become active storefronts

It is going to be in the far east storefront on the Euclid side I believe. There is a tea place inside.

^Ah, got it.  So right near the driveway to the 668 Euclid auto ramp.  Great to hear it will have a street presence.  I'm really excited for another high quality coffee shop downtown.

Lots of new signage coming to the Cumberland arcade, passed by Landmarks today. Sleek new black restaurant will have blade signage consistent with Yum Yums.

A chain link fence was being put up today, somewhat around the historic 310 bldg and partially into the now-closed small pkg lot, at 310 Prospect (Weston Dvlpmt area, i thought there was a thread for that?)

Interesting. County records don't indicate any properties have changed hands, nor has any development plan been submitted to Planning Commission (either Design Review or Landmarks Commission). A building cannot be demolished for parking downtown (especially in an historic district like Gateway) except if the parking is an interim use. In that case, development plan post-parking lot has to be submitted and approved by Planning Commission. And it has yet to be submitted. I watch Planning Commission dockets pretty closely, as do a few reporters in town. They wouldn't written about it had it been submitted to the city for approval.

It has been a while since I checked the docket in the court action and I just did so given the above posts.

A Judgment Entry was issued (after months of motion practice) on Jan. 23 2014 and the case is now listed as closed on the docket.  Unfortunately I cannot tell from the docket (Cleveland Muny court dockets suck) what the disposition of the case was and who won.  Since it has been a couple of weeks I would have thought Michelle might have reported on this by now. 

I could only guess what the fence is all about.  Maybe the court ordered something that mandated the fence (given the condition of the property).  I can't imagine a demolition permit has been issued so quickly, especially with no publicity.

Got a link to that? Good question on what that means "work in accordance with approved plans." I'd love to know what those plans are, where they are posted and when they were approved.

My guess is the "approved plans" are the plans for installing the (temporary) fencing for "pedestrian safety."  Also sounds like some alteration of the building exterior is required to install the fencing.

If somebody is really ambitious (and curious) and is near the Justice Center, they can go to the Muny Court Clerks office and obtain the 3 page judgment entry from the court case.  Journal Vol. 415 Pages 108-111.  I bet it contains some kind of answer.

^Thanks for taking the time to do that.

I am embarrassed to admit that even though I am a lawyer, I find the opinion somewhat confusing.  I which I could look over the underlying pleadings and briefs in support of the multiple motions to better figure things out.

It seems to say they have to demolish the building or repair it but cannot demolish without the approval of the Planning Commission (which apparently they won't get) so that will have to make the repairs.  It seems from the opinion that the city is fighting demolish but again this is not clear to me, especially when the order specifically states the building must be demolished.

Adding to that - it seems Judge Pianka writes a bit of dicta about how property owners may still demolish properties through neglect and it appears the City of Cleveland has no way to stop this practice.  He says the City Planning Commission must allow an emergency demolition if the property poses an "immediate danger to human life or health."  He also mentions a Detroit statute prohibiting such practice, hopefully City Council takes note.

I REALLY hope this doesn't go the way of the Stanley Block, however it appears LR 310 is hell bent on making that happen.  I am praying Weston can get this from these bastards.

It's still not clear that there is any demo permit issued for the site.  The city records indicate there is permit from 12/06/2013 still "pending."  Curiously, this pending permit doesn't list any information on its purpose - weird.  Other than that we have 1/10/2014 permit for the ballast fencing.  Although I hope this ghost permit is for repairs, it seems unlikely this group is interested in anything other than demo.

Does anyone on here work for Building & Housing?  If so, is this building being considered an "immediate danger to human life or health?"  How high is that threshold?

Seems to me that Pianka is telling the City it is SOL absent a change in ordinance.  It actually reads like an advisory opinion... something he is not really supposed to do.  He was able to deny the declaratory judgment action filed by LR 310 simply because LR 310 had not exhausted administrative remedies and (I believe) all 2506 appeals go to the common pleas court, not housing court.

BTW, just down the street, the old May Co. garage that has Tilted Kilt on the ground floor was sold Jan. 24 for $3 million to a new company called Rainbow Garage LLC. This company was incorporated only a month earlier, on Dec. 11, 2013 (see: http://www2.sos.state.oh.us/reports/rwservlet?imgc&Din=201334501541). However the filing doesn't give much insight to the company's purpose or mission. Neither do filings on Dec. 13, 2013 for a similarly named company Rainbow Garage Manager with the same organizers involved (See: http://www2.sos.state.oh.us/reports/rwservlet?imgc&Din=201334701703 or a amendment filed a week later ID'ing the company's sole shareholder, director and president as Robert Danial (See: http://www2.sos.state.oh.us/reports/rwservlet?imgc&Din=201335800726).

So I guess we'll have to wait and see what, if anything, comes from the acquisition of this high-profile property.

Stanley Block land scheduled for sheriff's sale, raising prospect of purchase by casino group

CLEVELAND, Ohio -- A small strip of land where one of downtown Cleveland's oldest buildings once stood will hit the auction block this month, in the culmination of nearly three years of litigation over the now-demolished Stanley Block building.

The Cuyahoga County Sheriff's office has scheduled the property, roughly 0.11 acres on Ontario Street, for a Feb. 18 foreclosure auction. Valued at $300,000, the vacant lot will require a starting bid of at least $200,000.

This might be a great thing.  Now that the owner of the May Company building owns the garage he will have an interest in sprucing up the ground floor retail......which now leaves much to be desired.
