I debated putting this in the restaurant thread, but it's more of a neighborhood development story....

Café 55 part of larger project to create new core in St. Clair Superior neighborhood
September 08, 2015
LEE CHILCOTE 

On a recent Thursday during the lunch hour, the newly-opened Café 55 in the  felt like a bit like a cafeteria for all of Cleveland.

Downtown office workers and neighborhood employees chatted at shared tables in the bright, airy room, which has concrete floors, large windows looking out over East 55th Street and high ceilings with exposed ductwork.

Diners munched on build-your-own lunch bowls that were made to order with fresh ingredients, sandwiches and salads, clearly enjoying the new healthy, fast-casual restaurant. Part of the appeal of the setting is that it is at once accessible and urban yet removed from the hubbub of downtown.

Seeing Café 55 bustling with customers makes Rick Semersky, the 42-year-old owner of the café and CEO of VIP Restoration, very happy.

“We knew we had a great concept, but were people going to show up?” he said. “Our lunch business has been fantastic, even better than we expected.”

Events are helping fuel the resurgence of the St. Clair-Superior neighborhood
September 19, 2015
By KATHY AMES CARR

Night Market organizers expected about 2,500 people to show up and celebrate Asian heritage at the inaugural open-air event held in June in Cleveland’s AsiaTown and Campus District neighborhoods.

Actual attendance doubled those projections. Subsequent social media photos showing the bright-colored costumes, crowds swarming ruby red tents and vendors dishing up xiaochi (small eats), all beneath strings of white lights, enticed event followers. Attendance surged to 11,000 in July, and then to 15,000 in August.

“We were pretty surprised,” event organizer Brendan Trewella said. “I needed a couple people’s hands to count how many times I heard, ‘Cleveland has an AsiaTown?’ at each event. But we drew the downtown office crowd leaving work, and then later into the night, we saw more families. There were strollers all over the place.”

Night Market is the latest fusion of culture and small business to pop up in Cleveland’s resurging St. Clair-Superior neighborhood.

If you are comparing it to Tyler Village, they have the same owner; Graystone Properties.
At least that is the last time that I was interested in Tyler.

Funny, cause I have thought the same thing for a long time.  Even south of St. Clair in sections.  I would love to see a street scape plan developed here, because there is some decent commercial stock.

This study will look at St. Clair from East 55th all the way to the Euclid border.  The first round 2 public meeting was held in Collinwood last week.  There will be a future meeting in the St. Clair Superior neighborhood.

In regards to the large factory do you think it would be possible to tear down the blue wall and add Windows to add potential life to that street?

Wish Fat Head would ditch North Olmsted for Downtown/Tremont/Ohio, not sure why they wouldn't do more business there.

All that corrugated metal was windows at some time, and the blue portion of the wall looks like a recent addition, so I would bet you'd see windows installed and that blue portion of the wall probably removed and replaced with something historically accurate- though what that is I wouldn't know for sure.

Really exiting stuff going on in this part of town.  I can't wait for more!

Hub 55, Sterle's owner launches new development in historic St. Clair-Superior building
Laura DeMarco, The Plain Dealer

CLEVELAND, Ohio - Cleveland developer Rick Semersky is extending his reach in the St. Clair-Superior area beyond East 55th Street.

The developer of the Hub 55 complex and the Lakeshore Banking and Trust building and owner of Sterle's Country House has purchased the historic American Gas Association building on East 62nd street.

Long-term plans call for turning the 50,000 square-foot-warehouse into a small-business incubator, in conjunction with Cleveland's Snap Digital company. Designs call for permanent anchor tenants on either end of the building, and flex space for smaller business in the remaining space.

6235 St. Clair is being auctioned by Chartwell on November 16, with a reserve price of $75,000.  The property is partially leased to Citizens Bank and was nationally advertised in the WSJ today, the first Cleveland property I've noticed in a while in that paper.  It should be a nice test of the neighborhood.

I agree--that entire area bounded by St Clair, the tracks, 55th and the Innerbelt would make some amazing lofts.   There are actually a few sprinkled in there--if you drive around at night I've seen some that look like people are doing a live-work thing.     Unfortunately, very few of the buildings are abandoned and most house long-functioning businesses.

East 55th and St. Clair Avenue fast becoming an up-and-coming Cleveland neighborhood
Paul Kiska
3:08 PM, Feb 28, 2017

CLEVELAND - Although it's one of Cleveland's busiest intersections, the East 55th and St. Clair area was downtrodden with vacant storefronts and vacant buildings for years.

Now, new development is breathing new life into this area development plan, dubbed Hub 55, giving people a reason to stop and look around.

The neighborhood is carving a niche.

Steel is up at the St. Martin de Porres high school expansion.

View from a car at St. Clair and E. 62.


What appeared to be a strip club opened just across the street about a month ago. I wondered if this was legal so close to a school. The wording of the sign has changed to indicate the establisment is now a video store. The silhouette of a lady with her legs in the air remains.

View from down Norwood.

This bears watching.... A large number of properties were sold in May on the north side of Payne Avenue, from 4601 Payne to East 49th, to a guy named Dan Pritchett. It includes three parcels just west of West 47th that sold May 3 for $575,000. The warehouse/factory was previously operated by Yuan Feng Enterprises Inc.

Then, on May 25, Pritchett bought all seven contiguous, vacant properties along Payne between East 47th and 49th. They were purchased from Louis Tanski who is CEO of Uncle Ben's Pawn Shop/Loan Co. which has been in business since 1946 at 2600 St. Clair.

What a change from a pawn shop owner to this....

Dan Pritchett is Executive VP of Faithlife Corp. of Bellingham, WA. Faithlife, an e-commerce firm, also owns Logos Bible Software. It is a large, fast-growing company.

He also is a partner is a company begun in 2016 called Storybox Cinema. According to LinkedIn....
