There seems to be some action going on in the Fifth Street Arcades. The Euclid space, east of Colossal Cupcakes is a pop-up shop called Collective Upcycle. It is up and ready to go, but the photo I took was super blurry...here's their sign.

There were a few places I'd not seen before such as this one:

with many other spaces covered in the black paper.

Across from Progressive Field, we are getting a better taste of the design of the sidewalks...

I just saw new signage for Goodfellers this week:

^ You noticed our new City Beautiful space I see. We just got done painting it last week.

City Beautiful is the organization that will be evolving out of Save Lower Prospect Avenue from the Columbia building fiasco. Dick Pace is lending space to non-profits to bring interest to the arcades until he can find real leases for the spaces, and we were able to secure a space, and will be holding our meetings and doing planning work in there.

Our organization worked on the Wolfe Music building after the Columbia (where although we lost the building, we did get some concessions thanks to councilman Johnson) and now we are working on a Slavic village project.

I always thought the Gateway District was odd as it is vastly undeveloped which you see when you are coming off the freeway and is a surprise because of what is around there....

I'll save you the trip. It's going to be called Stonetown. I believe there was an article posted in another thread. It's going to be Soul Food. And they aren't using the back space. It's being leased to someone else.

That's the view outside my window every day. Some of the scaffolding has been up for a couple months now, but they recently added more. The only work I've noticed is from Coon Reconstruction. They've been scaling different sides of the building doing some type of concrete/mortar work. My guess is just checking for cracks and sealing. The scaffolding is probably for protection from falling debris.

Colossal Cupcakes will either be getting signage or an art piece by Feb 1st. Per Facebook: "A six foot 3D cupcake would look pretty cool on Euclid...don't you agree?" and then in the comments: "By February 1, Cleveland will own the worlds largest cupcake!"

Also...Chocolate 76 will be opening up shop on January 21, where they will be selling the city their handmade chocolate in the 5th Street Arcades.

How can you say that without even seeing the venues?  Without seeing them, they are unique to the area and something that residents and visitor to the are would patronize, not to mention daytime office workers.

It was a joke MTS. I've been to her restaurant in Savannah. It was nothing special. There are very few places I would legitimately say keep out of the area.

Someone should photoshop a Sherwin Williams skyscraper somewhere in that  banner and email it back to them. Maybe they'll get the hint.

My only critique: why are the lights of Progressive field were so dominating in the image - why not add the wind spiral thing instead?

The turbine is supposedly only temporary. Probably a good idea to leave it off the banner if it won't be there in a year or two.

http://www.cleveland.com/metro/index.ssf/2012/09/cleveland_state_university_win.html

Quote
The turbine is expected to generate about 40,000 kilowatt-hours per year, roughly the amount of energy needed to power four homes, Indians officials said. The ballpark uses about 17 million kilowatt-hours a year.

Rashidi plans to test the turbine for a year.

He said he has spoken with a company interested in replicating his turbine on a much smaller scale – a six-foot spiral and 18-inch turbines. It would be mounted on top of telecommunications towers like a weathervane, removing the need for electrical components.

The lights are fairly iconic and unique when it comes to ballparks.

CLEVELAND - After Friday’s massive storefront addition, it’s going to be hard to miss a downtown Cleveland cupcake store.
