I love this. It did say too that a garage was under consideration too. Or maybe at a later stage we could see more apartments over a garage where the lot is now planned

Bestest quote from the PD:

Brickman also would need a rezoning, since most of the property is designated for industrial uses. That includes a hilltop garden, cultivated by residents at the Grove Court Condominiums, that Brickman intends to maintain as a public green space.

He's exploring ways to tie that garden and the new residences to walking and bicycling paths, including the planned Lake Link trail in the Flats. Switchbacks down the hillside, for example, might provide better public access from Ohio City to the trail, along with rowing facilities at Rivergate Park and a planned skateboard park.

"Whoever buys here better have an RTA pass," Eric Wobser, executive director of Ohio City Inc., said of Brickman's project. "They better have a bike. They better have a kayak. They better have a skateboard."

But, he added, they won't necessarily need a car.

Looks like a great project!  Isn't this in Ohio City though or is it Tremont once you pass Columbus Rd?

Duck Island is really neither Ohio City or Tremont.  But it is claimed by TWDC.

^Tremont and OC have these agreements about this type of stuff. When it comes to the CDCs, OCI handles the area of Duck Island that is north of Lorain. So, this development should be in the Ohio City thread. Also, it is almost in the shadow the of west side market.

This development had way more to do with ohio city than tremont, so I agree it should be there.

Thanks for making the new thread. I added the earlier stuff I discovered about the Abode project as well as the information Berges' infill housing south of Lorain. So I changed the thread subject to "developmentS" to reflect all the projects that are going on in Duck Island.

Long-time lurker, first-time poster...

I'm very excited about this project. I think it's the beginning of a longer-term vision to regenerate the area that connects Tremont with Ohio City. Down the line, a safe, walk-able stretch between the two neighborhoods would help cement inner Cleveland as a great destination for young professionals.

^ Welcome! To me Cleveland's biggest obstacle is that every "good" section of the city borders, or is even in some cases surrounded, by a "bad" one. Bridging the gaps (making them safe and walkable as you've said) will be a tremendous catalyst for further growth.

making sure the train avenue greenway extension happens would help.  as would a plan for wiley and train avenue.  The Fairmont Creamery team is trying to see if the city can re-pave/sidewalk/light up willey so it feels like more of a connector.

Check this small development out. Very nice looking townhomes. More interestingly, look at the address. Between this and the Fairmount Creamery development, it is nicve to start seeing some bleed over development. The push across the highway had to be made at some point.

The map they give on that website is wrong.  The 8th image shows that development is going onto the corner of W. 17th and Bradford on Duck Island.

duck island poised for redevelopment with completion of draft neighborhood plan

Duck Island, a pocket neighborhood between Ohio City and Tremont that has long been inexplicably walled off from the revitalization that surrounds it, might be poised to see a surge of development -- on its own terms -- if a new plan has anything to say about it.

Tremont West Development Corporation, with support from Cleveland Neighborhood Progress, hired the KSU Cleveland Urban Design Collaborative to conduct a community planning charrette last month. A draft plan is now complete. It will be presented at a community meeting in Tremont this month, and once finalized approval will be sought from the Cleveland Planning Commission.

The above is for more than just Abode's development. This is also for another development listed below for five townhouses, which is across Lorain Avenue from Abode's development and perched above Scranton Road! Duck Island is HOT!

I'm sure many folks have seen this already, but I don't think it was posted.  The KS CUDC conducted a charrette focusing on Duck Island last fall and produced this master plan:

Very cool. The stormwater terrace on p. 10 is a superb example that should be emulated all along the river and lake.

Stormwater Capture

The northern slope of Duck Island, close to the Cuyahoga River, could be used for terraced or switchback stormwater capture in order to slow or
halt stormwater before it flows into the river, reducing the overall load on the watershed. (Schematic Drawing for the Cistern Steps on Vine Street in Seattle,  WA. Source: Growing Vine Street)

The stormwater system could be attractively planted and designed in such a way to allow public access and use.

^ $370k for the 3 bedroom units. They have been on zillow about a month. And a real estate agent sent me info about 2 months ago. Last I heard only a couple of them were left. But that was a couple weeks ago. They may be all sold by now.
