So, for those that qualify as accredited investors, there is a new way to invest in local real estate projects.  Vestor, a local start-up, is selling shares of debt for a Brewery project in Duck Island.  You can buy any amount of the 50 available shares for $5,000 each.  If you buy $25,000 or more worth of the fund you get preferred equity in the project.  For the debt holders, your return is 8% with an exit after the 5th year.

This is a very cool funding model that has the potential to get a lot more local investors involved in local real estate deals.  In turn, it's a great tool for developers to raise capital.  Here is a link to Vestor's offering: http://www.vestor.co/Forest-City-Brewery (Add yourself to the mailing list for future offerings)

Here is the location of the brewery (red pin):


For those that are interested in investing or know someone who might be, please feel free to DM me for more information.  Or, feel free to DM me if you are just interested in Vestor.

*Please note that only accredited investors or corporate entities may buy shares.  Definition of accredited investor:
In the United States, for an individual to be considered an accredited investor, they must have a net worth of at least one million US dollars, not including the value of their primary residence or have income at least $200,000 each year for the last two years (or $300,000 together with their spouse if married) and have the expectation to make the same amount this year."

Duck yeah!!!

Cleveland beer garden from late 1800s is being brought back to life as Forest City Brewery

By STAN BULLARD
October 26, 2014 4:30 AM

Two types of equity — old-fashioned sweat equity familiar to the West Side and new-breed crowdfunding that uses an Internet platform to find investors — are going into a plan to resurrect a one-time beer garden as part of a brewery in Cleveland's Duck Island.

Originally, the partners planning to open the Forest City Brewery and beer-tasting pub wanted a different site, but Sammy Catania, a staffer at the Tremont West Development Corp. nonprofit, showed them a subdued gray commercial building on the southeast corner of Columbus Road and Freeman Avenue. In 1915, the timber frame warehouse had gone in atop a site that housed the Silberberg Bros. Beer Garden from 1880 to 1900.

Jay Demagall, a partner in the Forest City Brewery venture, said the group was sold when it found that part of the beer garden — now a grassy yard — still exists.

Forest City Brewery embraces history as it sets to open in Cleveland

By  Marc Bona, Northeast Ohio Media Group   
on November 21, 2014 at 8:00 AM, updated November 21, 2014 at 8:12 AM

CLEVELAND, Ohio – Jay Demagall spends his days thinking about the past as much as the future.

He and his business partners have a spring target date to open Forest City Brewery in the Duck Island part of Cleveland's Tremont neighborhood. It's one of the latest brewing endeavors in a city that has embraced craft beer as a creative industry that appears to be sustaining its growth.

But it's the past that Demagall embraces.

The 43-year-old plays vintage base ball – two words, since we're talking 19th century here – using old-style rules. He has a degree in history from the University of Toledo. He rattles off historical footnotes of old ballplayers and Cleveland history. And the brewery, which will sit at Columbus Road and Freeman Avenue, already has nostalgic connections to an era gone but not forgotten, at least not by Demagall.

A several adjacent parcels (00401045, 004-01-046, 004-01-054, 00401043, 004-01-052) forming a nice chunk of land stretching from west 19th to west 20th sold in early October.

most of the parcels were previously owned by the Haab bakery trust; all of them are owned by URBAN INVESTMENTS CLE LLC;

The parcel where the abbey market is not sold and a parcel adjacent to the abbey market (directly north) - 004-01-046, is by DI DEVELOPMENT, LLC, which is likely owned by Matt Berges (who owns ~12 parcels in duck island), he also owns the Southwest corner of west 19th and abbey which is currently a vacant lot.

see this map that I quickly made for an illustration - https://a.tiles.mapbox.com/v4/skorasaurus.ka0bl058/page.html?access_token=pk.eyJ1Ijoic2tvcmFzYXVydXMiLCJhIjoiaEdGTUZWTSJ9.osOC8tWU3bMaNprVNoEu7g#19/41.48484/-81.69835

KJP,

Has he done any projects, buildings in Duck Island so far with the lots he owns?

Also of note, a new house is going up in Duck Island ; another was demolished yesterday on a lot owned by Berges, on West 19th, just north of Abbey. The house had a very large fire some time in the past couple months. - https://www.flickr.com/photos/skorasaurus/15698627549/

The new house going up - corner of 19th and Smith - https://www.flickr.com/photos/skorasaurus/15698627549/ -
This lot was sold by Berges (DI DEVELOPMENT, LLC) in October for $283K!

The houses going up at the corner of West 19th & Smith are the first houses that Mr. Berges has constructed in Duck Island, though he has built several super insulated, low energy houses throughout the City.  The lots at W19th & Smith were sold to an architect, with Berges acting as the builder.

Noticed last night the home located at 2133 West 20TH Street ( I think) has been torn down. Currently owned by 4400 Development LLC (Owen McBride - and has been part of the McBride family since at least 1997). Does not ring a bell and I don't recall seeing this on any previously scheduled meetings. Anyone else recall what might be happening here?

A puff piece, but not sure how we missed this over from November...

Relocation specialist Ted Theophylactos, with Howard Hanna's Cleveland City office, jumps out of his car at the quiet corner of Lorain Ave. and W. 17th St.
"You won't believe this view," Theophylactos said, waving his arms in the direction he wanted visitors to the Cleveland neighborhood of Duck Island to see.
But pointing wasn't necessary. What resembled a giant postcard of Cleveland's skyline as seen from the west on a bright fall day loomed large.

And the brewery, which will sit at Columbus Road and Freeman Avenue, already has nostalgic connections to an era gone but not forgotten, at least not by Demagall.

http://www.cleveland.com/drinks/index.ssf/2014/11/forest_city_brewery_embraces_h.html


I'm one of the owners of the meadery mentioned in this article.  We're real excited to be a part of all that is happening in Duck Island.  The building is great, and Jay has a truly inspiring vision for this property and for our little group of businesses.  We will have a brewery, a meadery, and a coffee roaster on premise.  There'll be opportunities for collaboration between us- think coffee beers, coffee meads, barley and honey wines, etc.  There's a possibility of a distiller coming into the project as well, which offers additional possibilities (Fermented mead?  Never seen anyone else doing it!)  The building itself is going to be very interesting, with lots of repurposed historic materials.  The ownership group also has the building across the street, and some interesting plans for it that I won't make public yet. I have some pictures of the neighborhood, and of the building in the demo stage.  I'll keep you updated, as well!

The corner of the complex is an 1880's house, it will be part of Forest City Brewery's facility and upstairs will be an apartment.


The two windows on the right will be our frontage, with the left of those two windows coming out to be replaced with a front door.  To the left will be Duck Rabbit Coffee.


Looking south along Columbus Rd. from the front of the building.


The Westside Market, as seen from in front of our building.  One of the things we love about this location!


Freeman Ave runs between the two buildings making up the complex.


With a couple of new walls, this will be our production facility.  We will have a tasting room to the left.


This is looking towards the front of the tasting room, the door will be inserted where the window to the right is currently.  The framing will come out and the brick will be cleaned up. The cast iron radiators, once cleaned, are going to make nice accent pieces.  We might use them as part of the base for our service bar.


The 2x4's are going to come out and the timber ceiling will be exposed.


Let me know if you have any questions on anything!  I'm putting a link to our facebook page in my sig line, too.  Please like us!

Wow, very cool- congrats!  And thanks for the behind-the-scenes photos.  Look forward to seeing some progress shots.  Is the building across the street that the owners bought the Duck Island Club storefront or something else?

^ What do you think of MapBox?  I was playing around with it this weekend.

Amazing. I've been using their stuff since they first started in '12 and am a big fan. If you want to make a very customizable web map, it's (specifically mapbox-studio) is the way to go. They're also doing a lot of innovative work with web maps (hired developer of leaflet a few years ago), also check out turf.js and mapbox-gl if you haven't already. They have also expanded in recent years to routing and satellite imagery that take advantage of the new landsat. I'm pretty knowledgeable about them. 

I just needed a really quick, simple map, so I just used their web interface to make the above map. Access to their satellite imagery in your maps will be $5/month.

The only thing in the geospatial game that they haven't conquered is geocoding (transforming addresses into lat/lon points to place on a map) although they're working on it.

I haven't really used any ESRI products, so I can't compare to that. Another solid alternative to them is cartoDB which is entirely web-based.

Quite a bit already under construction. It's awesome to see. The two houses at Smith and 19th and the group of townhomes on 17th are almost done. And they are digging foundations for another set of houses on 19th further up just before Carnegie/Lorain.

Anyone have any info on this project. Really haven't heard anything about it for awhile. Has anyone seen any demo or signage at the site? I know there were some environmental clean up and property acquisition issues that needed to be done. And the developers reputation has taken a few hits in the past. Hope it can still get done.

Certainly is a large project that would require many different landowners to sell their property to the developer.

And what if the one remaining landowner wanted nearly a million dollars for his property...

Craft coffee, mead, beer and unique vehicle coming to Duck Island

Duck Island, the story of which is hard to nail down, is an unusual neighborhood. At once, it's home to the tony Velvet Tango Room, wherein stepping out for a cocktail is elevated to an event worthy of Gatsby, and the Duck Island Club, which invites customers to "duck in and duck out" for specials such as $3 "mystery beers."
 
A host of diverse beverage options is about to fill in the middle ground when Forest City Brewery, 2135 Columbus Road, comes online in as little as four months.
 
"This was a saloon that was built in 1865 by immigrants from the Alsace region of France," says brewery proprietor Jay Demagall from the Freeman Avenue Entrance of the 10,000-square-foot space. "There was a huge beer garden with an actual bowling alley at the very end of it."

Anyone have any info on this project. Really haven't heard anything about it for awhile. Has anyone seen any demo or signage at the site? I know there were some environmental clean up and property acquisition issues that needed to be done. And the developers reputation has taken a few hits in the past. Hope it can still get done.

There's been 'demo of signage' meaning the billboard that stood on the site has been removed.
