Seeing them mention the issue with parking being across the street at the current store being a problem, in combination with the suburban style vision of Midtown, I hope that they still build the building up to the street and tuck the parking in the back.

CPD's been known to advise developments in the city not to hide the parking, especially if they will be open after dark.

Making the city less walkable leads to more criminals and more crime.  This is the sort of corrupt stupidity we need to wipe out. 

We need to design for the people we have, not hypothetical ones.  We're also short on police.   If the parking is visible from the street, the passing cruiser can keep a better eye on it.

And police can't be there 24/7, but residents can.   Maybe Dave's would be willing in a public/private situation to put a couple floors of residential on top.   Would be a great situation for senoirs:  transport access and above a grocery.

^ There will be no residential above.  The design and financing is basically done.

I'd like to have more police, we all would, but Cleveland seems to have a relatively solid amount right now.

As for hypothetical population, I would place a higher priority on that since we are supposedly in growth mode.  I don't think anyone believes the population we have is sufficient, certainly not in the vicinity of midtown.  The question then is what sort of development would entice more population to settle there.  Hard to argue with a flagship-quality grocery store.  Next question is how to build it, and I would rather account for modern trends than ignore them.

I don't understand the lack of police statement. Cleveland has the most police per 10,000 residents in Ohio.

A city designed to based on fear ends up looking like a very scary place. You build out of vision and hope for the future. The settings that result from that approach tend to be very uplifting and inclusive.

Have you ever called the police after hearing gunfire in an East side neighborhood and the police don't come for hours? That's where the comment comes from.

I've called them and gotten laughter in response, which suggests the problem isn't staffing.

Start with Steve Loomis.  He has the rank-and-file dragging their feet on calls to increase pressure for more officers (and be a pain in the a$$ to the city under a consent decree).

Group has high-level hopes for Midtown
June 04, 2017
By JAY MILLER

Thirty-five years ago, Midtown pioneers Morton Mandel, chairman of Premier Industrial Corp., an automotive and electronic parts supplier, and Thomas Roulston, president of the Roulston & Co. financial firm, decided it was time spruce up the ragged industrial district between downtown Cleveland and University Circle that was home to their businesses.

So with other nearby businesses, they created and funded a nonprofit corporation, Midtown Corridor Inc., to clean up trash-strewn vacant lots, plants some flowers and rid Prospect Avenue of its prostitutes. By 1997, the cleanup was well underway and businesses like Applied Industrial Technologies Inc. and State Novelty Co. had moved in. But it was still not a neighborhood. Crain's Cleveland Business reporter Stan Bullard described it at the time as "an industrial park surrounded by some of the city's poorest residential neighborhoods."

In the two decades since, however, Midtown's business base has grown, spurred by biotech spinoffs of University Circle's health and medical institutions, and the conversion of older, lower-rent downtown office buildings into apartments is making Midtown more attractive for service businesses and nonprofits.

Midtown Tech Hive will blend coworking, digital education on Cleveland's Health-Tech Corridor
By Michelle Jarboe, The Plain Dealer
on June 06, 2017 at 3:46 PM

CLEVELAND, Ohio - A nondescript, largely empty building in Cleveland's Midtown could become a hub for roving office workers and digital education, melding people at the forefront of the region's tech economy with city residents who fall on the other side of the digital divide.

DigitalC, a local nonprofit organization, is planning a late-fall opening for the Midtown Tech Hive, a $1.5 million transformation of the Frost Building at 6815 Euclid Ave. The project will fill 90 percent of the three-story, 15,000-square-foot building, which sits at the eastern edge of the Dunham Tavern Museum's campus near the center of a 1,600-acre district known as the Cleveland Health-Tech Corridor.

The project draws inspiration from similar buildings - most notably, perhaps, a blended coworking and event space called Impact Hub Oakland in California - that cater to a more mobile workforce while trying to elevate the broader population's digital know-how.

The Inspiron Group Ltd.,owner, proposes to change use from office use to 80 apartment units on the upper level, store and restaurant on the first floor in a C5 General Retail Business District. The owner
appeals for relief from the strict application of the following sections of the Cleveland Codified Ordinances:

Section 357.09(b)(2)(C) which states that an interior side yard equal to one fourth (1/4) the height of the building or in this case 28 feet where 25 feet are proposed.
2. Section 357.08(b)(2) which states that a rear yard equal to one half (1/2) the height of the building is required and no rear yard is proposed.
3. Section 355.04 which states that the maximum gross floor area of building cannot exceed lot area therefore 20,625 square feet are allowed and the appellant is proposing 96,115
square feet.
4. Section 349.15 which states that five bicycle parking spaces are required at the rate of one per twenty car parking spaces and none proposed for 92 required car parking spaces.

I thought I've been kerping up with projects around town, but I drove down Euclid today and allof a sudden I came across a 3-4-story building going up justeast of E. 57th, where I hadn't noticed construction at all in recent months.  And also sizable construction job on Euclid between E. 55th and E. 57th.  I've been reading about some project proposals around there but I thought they were where I had been seeing the steel frame assembled, between Euclid and Chester, and the the vintage brick bldg. bear there being remodeled.  In any case, this Euclid and E. 57th seems to be going up awfulky fast!

One is the Link59 Geis building and the other is the UH Rainbow Center for Women and Children. They are mentioned in the midtown thread.

Campus, MidTown districts considering addition of SIDs
June 18, 2017 UPDATED 2 DAYS AGO
By JAY MILLER

Two more Cleveland development corporations are planning to create special improvement districts, or SIDs, within the areas they serve.

Campus District Inc. and MidTown Cleveland Inc. see the SIDs as a self-help way to polish the appearance and the image of their prime commercial areas and to attract more development. They have seen how SIDs have worked, most recently, to spiff up Ohio City and the Gordon Square Arts District.

The Campus District neighborhood runs between East 18th Street and East 30th Street from Interstate 77 on the south to the Shoreway on the north. Midtown covers the commercial and industrial blocks that run from the Innerbelt Freeway on the west to East 79th Street on the east, between Payne and Carnegie avenues.

It has to be paid for by the property owners.  And maybe we're getting too fragmented with 3 SIDs adjacent to each other instead of expanding the DCA to cover the Campus District and Midtown.  It seems inefficient in terms of overhead, though each SID can be tailored to the needs of it's constituents more closely, I guess.
