Here's hoping Morgan Linen Services decides it wants an efficient new facility on the Opportunity Corridor in a few years and offers its space for redevelopment.

Unfortunately very unlikely.

Such a cool and insulated little neighborhood. My only gripe with it is its relative isolation - but even that is really a stretch, considering the WSM is a 10 minute walk. Duck Island Club is a treasure, in my opinion, and the new homes fill in the neighborhood very well.

Hmm...the description in the article is more promising than the picture shown.  Looks like something you would find in Beachwood (at least from the pic).  Trying to understand from the pic where all that retail mentioned in the article is going.  Is third time a charm?  Still does not have financing and Brickman definitely has other stuff on his plate.  I thought this was going to begin way before many projects which have broken ground and are well on the way.

If Brickman's project keeps shrinking like this, soon it will be underground.

What's with the big curving drive running directly into the side of the building where there's no door.  I think this rendering isn't ready for primetime.

"It will be an architecturally significant building ..." said Brickman.  Ok, but it sure doesn't look it. Still, the current occupancy rates cited in the article remain encouraging.

In all fairness, I think we're seeing the "back" of the building- or really what will be an interior courtyard once phase II comes around.  The architectural interest will be along the bluff, and hopefully along Lorain Ave.

The disappearance of tall buildings sure seems like a cave to the 'we don't want shadows on our houses' crowd.  As CMHA's Riverview Towers demonstrates, the location on the hills overlooking the Cuyahoga can be majestic -- whatever you think of Riverview, there's no question you can see it from miles away and, no doubt, the reverse is true for residents in the upper floors.  As it stands now, the more squat Centric over in University Circle seems more impressive than this Brickman Phase 1.

^ I think the change in plans has little to do with community push back but has everything to do with ' sticker shock'. That thing he was floating out there last year looked to be north of 150mil.  This looks more in line with what Brickman does. I like the choice of Vocon they do nice stuff. Depending on the budget and the finishes I think we will see more of what is described in the article then the current render. I'll save my hope for a mixed use high rise for the Market Square retail strip if that ever happens.

This seems like a fair compromise to me.  There was definitely some neighborhood pushback against the height, but could be some sticker shock as well.  If there is an entrance on Lorain and retail as mentioned, I think it works pretty well for the neighborhood setting.  Looks like the drive pictured is West 20th.

By the way, the Crain's article posted above was updated with a rendering from Vocon.

http://www.crainscleveland.com/apps/pbcsi.dll/storyimage/CC/20170528/NEWS/170529754/AR/0/RENDER2.jpg?MaxW=880&v=201411210943

It's great most of the recent apartment buildings have (or will have) their parking below grade. This one would be unique in that it has 2 levels buried. I wish NRP would have done better with the Edison

The design calls for a four-story building with two floors of underground parking on the site on the north side of Lorain Avenue on the opposite side of a hill that the project shares with G
Grove Court Condominiums.

Fortunately, I'd say Duck Island is hotter right now than the apartment areas of Beachwood!

As to thos thirteen Bldg. Permits mentioned above, the addresses on W. 20th are way to the south - not even in the main part of W. 20th, near Abbey and Lorain, so I don't think that would be considered Duck Island.

Saw the townhouses down on the south end of W19th are listed again, with new looking renderings this time.   Maybe signs of life for this project.  Wouldn't be surprised if Knez is encouraged by the sales of their other homes in the area.

On the south side of Abbey Ave. between Columbus Rd. and W. 21st Pl. They have a map on their website with a yellow star for the location of the project.
