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.
