That vantage point tells me how much we are in need of a May Company building conversion/rehab.

Looks like someone is going to have a front-row view to this construction project! By sharing that picture from that vantage point, you do realize that we're going to count on you to provide us with regular photographic construction updates? ;)

What is the “Play Euclid”?
• “Play Euclid” is a three-day event taking place during lunch hours – from 11 a.m. – 2 p.m. – while Euclid
Avenue (between East 4th Street and E Roadway) is closed to vehicular traffic for construction.
• The street will be open for pedestrians, offering different activities and live music entertainment. Locals
and visitors will also still be able to stop in the businesses in the area while the street is closed.

Why is this being done?
• As a result of Euclid Avenue being closed for the start of construction on The Beacon (515 Euclid Ave.)
during the week of September 11, local organizations wanted to utilize this opportunity to do something
fun and interesting in the area.
• Groups also wanted to leverage this opportunity to offer more visibility for Downtown Cleveland
businesses.
• By making this portion of the street accessible for pedestrians, it not only offers entertainment during
lunch hours, but it gives people the opportunity to explore the businesses in the district, as well.

What kind of activities will locals and visitors find at “Play Euclid”?
• There will be a variety of activities offered at “Play Euclid” for locals and visitors.
• LAND Studio is providing lawn games and Crackling Art frog sculptures.
• Destination Cleveland will offer photo opportunities with its mini #ThisisCLE sign, as well as Giant Connect
Four and Giant Jenga, outside of the Cleveland Visitors Center.
• UH Bikes will set up a temporary bike station where visitors can obtain a card for a free 30-minute bike
rental.
• Live music entertainment will also be provided while guests walk around the area.

Who is involved with “Play Euclid”?
• This collaborative effort was spearheaded by the Historic Gateway Neighborhood Corporation who
engaged the following groups organizations that worked hard to put together this event in two weeks’
time: City of Cleveland, Downtown Cleveland Alliance, Destination Cleveland, Bike Cleveland, UH Bikes,
LAND Studio, Cleveland Urban Design Collaborative and Trust for Public Land.

When and where is “Play Euclid” taking place?
• “Play Euclid” is taking place Wednesday, Sept. 13 – Friday Sept. 15, 11 a.m. – 2p.m. It will be held on
Euclid Avenue from E 4th Street to E Roadway in Downtown Cleveland’s Historic Gateway District.

Watching the Indians game today, the construction crane is very visible in most views. When they do the downtown panoramic view from the upper deck, the crane dominates.

Looks like it will be a horizontal jib crane afterall.

Looks like the construction crane is within the boundaries of the building. That creates a shaft within the building that must be put to use after the crane is removed. Could be the itility uptake and maybe an elevator bank.

Looks like a decent amount of the tower crane has been set up.  It's now visible above some of the downtown buildings!!!

So nice to see this on the skyline!!!

Even without the tower crane, that's just a really cool shot of downtown. I don't think I've ever seen it from that angle before.

Thanks.  It definitely is an interesting perspective of the city (and it'll be a different angle to view the new construction).  I'll try to keep the pics coming to update the progress!!!

Awesome. Crazy how the tower crane is literally sitting on the parking deck with just a stack of counter weights to keep it steady.

Even though one of these cranes is just temporary, it's nice to see 2 of them up in the air.  Hopefully fairly soon we'll have at least one more crane up over the city to continue the building!!!

No.  There will be another section added once they reach the max height of the current crane

It's close to 200,000 lbs of counter weight

I wonder if there are supports under the crane on the other floors of the garage.  That is a lot of weight to support.

Yes, there is. When we were looking at the project, the crane needed to be re-shored all of the way down the garage to the basement slab.
