Rebirth of a factory site in Euclid
Sunday, November 20, 2005
Thomas W. Gerdel
Plain Dealer Reporter


On a bright day, sunlight streams through the factory's windows, illuminating rows of steel columns stretching to the high ceiling. But the once-productive copper and brass plant in Euclid is empty and silent except for the steady buzzing of a small power unit.

A few ceiling lights are still on, but presses, rolling mills and other heavy machinery have been stripped away, leaving deep gashes in the dirty concrete- and wood-block floor.

Vacant for the last seven years, the 63-year-old factory on East 260th Street is now headed for demolition, the first step in remaking the nearly 83-acre site into a modern business park.

Would someone with a subscription to Crains post the article about Visconi looking to redevelop a Euclid PMX factory into retail.

Thanks

Retail could rise again in a desolate Euclid neighborhood that has seen its once-proud shopping mall dissolve into a ghost town. (Link: property listing)

Visconsi Cos., a Pepper Pike-based real estate developer, is interested in building new stores on an abandoned, 83-acre stretch of industrial property at 1121 E. 260th St.

I wonder if Wal-Mart is the angle.  The nearby WM on Vine Street is not a supercenter.

I hope its not another Wal-Mart. They talk about vacant rail lines adjacent to the site I wonder if there could be some development of that to meet up the the red line or at least build the place with that future possibility in mind.

Ray Fogg Corporate Properties is building on its Euclid ties with $6 million project
By STAN BULLARD
March 01, 2015 4:30 AM

A year after finishing its first office/warehouse building at Bluestone Business Center in Euclid, Ray Fogg Corporate Properties LLC already is taking steps for an encore.

Ray Fogg Jr., president of Ray Fogg Corporate Properties, said the Brooklyn Heights-based real estate developer and industrial construction contractor plans to add a building with 127,000 square feet of space at Bluestone as soon as possible this spring.

Plans call for the structure with 32-foot-tall ceilings to be ready for tenants by summer's end. The venture is a more than $6 million construction project. The industrial park is south of the East 260th Street interchange with I-90.

KJP,
I believe this is just the leasing office they use for their properties, which were not built in this decade..

Correct, that is where the Lube Stop used to be. That was demolished and the land remidiated. The leasing office is new construction. Not a re-ues of any previously existing building.

Thanks for clarifying- I thought that was a reuse of the Lube Stop (and if you want to talk about reuses- that would have been a doosey).

I'm just curious, has the Euclid mayor spoken out in favor of RTA's Red Line extension proposal?  If he has, I sure haven't heard him.  And if not, why not? ... especially given the potential for economic, TOD development in Euclid this extension could spawn.

I would imagine that right now, it is still too far away in terms of plausibility.  Although, Cervenik is not running for reelection, so he really could speak his mind as much as he wants now, I would imagine.

But that's the point.  Such a project becomes more plausible the more politicians speak out about it.  Keep in mind, RTA hasn't even chosen the Red Line as its Locally Preferred Option.  If politicians in the impact area of this line, including Cleveland City councilmen, like Mike Polansek and Jeff Johnson (in upper and lower Collingwood, respectively), don't speak out then RTA can quietly opt for buses with little or no pressure.   This should not be what we want.

The consulting team will soon deliver to GCRTA the Tier 1 environmental assessment which will say that the project represents an enormous economic opportunity for Northeast Cleveland, East Cleveland and Euclid, and that the project would generate sufficient ridership in a cost-effective manner, would divert a significant number of vehicle-miles driven to transit, that GCRTA has sufficient Red Line trains to operate it, reduce the region's critical jobs-job seekers spatial disconnect, and that it would generate economic benefits sufficient to attract a full federal funding share to construct the project (about 50% of project construction costs). There are still a couple of options that survived the screening process and would be eligible for federal funds including (locally preferred alternatives-LPAs):
+ an all-rail extension to the Euclid Park-n-Ride (most expensive to build, generates the most new transit trips and benefits);
+ a hybrid rail-BRT option of extending the rail to Noble with a BRT north on East 152 to Waterloo, East 185 and Lake Shore (middle-cost, middle-benefits);
+ all-BRT option east on Euclid to East 152, Waterloo, East 185, Lake Shore (lowest-cost, lowest new transit ridership, lowest benefits).

GCRTA staff will review the consultant's report and make a recommendation to the GCRTA board on what, if any, LPA should be advanced into detailed engineering. Final engineering can cost about 5 percent of the total estimated construction cost. So for the all-rail extension, that could be about $50 million -- about 20-50 percent of that could be from nonfederal funds.

A "Park-N-Ride" type red line station (similar to Brookpark or Puritas) near Babbitt would do great. It would be the only such station in that part of eastern Cuyahoga and would draw interest from Lake County residents who could easily access it from I-90. I know these areas are served by RTA and Laketran Park-N-Ride buses during rush hours but train accessibility would offer much more flexibility in usage time. Perhaps the train station could be used as a catalyst to spur development on the large swaths of empty land occupied by the former Euclid Mall and K-Mart/Twin Value. Not to mention these properties are adjacent to the Babbitt/E.260 highway ramps.

How about that -- a direct rail link to University Circle (rail probably would be the fastest way to get there!), downtown Cleveland and Hopkins International Airport. I could see an advanced manufacturing district in that area, including possibly replacing the mall. If a TIF were instituted, that might provide a significant part of the local funding share for the rail extension. There is also interest by the city of Cleveland of creating an innovation district around a station at Noble Road. Without the rail line, I don't see anything on the horizon that could improve the fortunes of northeast Cleveland and northern East Cleveland -- all right next to Euclid. Such a huge area cannot be allowed to remain neglected and metastasize.

KJP - if the red line to Euclid was selected, along with the costs of construction, would they also add in money for additional cars?  (my real quesion: would a Red line exentension be a back door way to get desperately needed money for train car maintenance and upkeep?)

Euclid Brewing Co. to open soon, bringing needed local-beer option to East Side


Doug Fry, the soon-to-open Euclid Brewing Co. is a giant chemistry kit.

And for Fry and his wife, Kim, opening a brewery is about not having regrets.

"This is one of those things that I don't want to be sitting in my senior-care room 10, 15 years from now wondering if I didn't try it," said Fry, who on March 30 left his job as a principal scientist with Ricerca, a company that focuses on small-scale synthesis and manufacturer of drugs and clinical trials. Kim Fry will maintain her job as director of communications at St. Paul Episcopal Church in Cleveland Heights.

The couple's journey to open a brewery in the city of about 50,000 is a winding one. Fry, 56, said he grew up in New Jersey and has lived in California, Wisconsin, Connecticut, South Carolina, North Carolina and Massachusetts. They have been in Northeast Ohio since 2007. Kim, 55, is from Cincinnati; they met while undergraduates at Ohio University.

Permits are in place, and Fry is ready to begin brewing on the shiny new equipment any day. Hours are not set though they will be limited, at least to start.

The storefront brewery, at 21950 Lakeshore Blvd., is located across Beach Club Bistro and is sandwiched between Lakeshore Coffee and Back Alley Antiques.

The space has 20 or so seats at reclaimed lab tables, plus there's a small bar overlooking the kettles.

HGR announces new national automotive tenant


Nope, HGR Industrial Surplus is not getting into the used car business, but DriveTime, a new national automotive tenant, will be joining HGR Industrial Surplus and NEO Sports Complex at Nickel Plate Station, 20001 Euclid Avenue, Euclid, Ohio, in September.


The company is based out of Arizona and sells used cars. It currently has 139 dealerships throughout the country and is planning to open 10 more by the end of the year. Its geographic region started in the west and is expanding to the East Coast.  It employees more than 1,000 people. The company’s largest competitor in the area is CarMax.


The facility in Euclid will be used as an inspection and distribution center. DriveTime will buy used cars and ship them into Euclid for service and detailing. From there, they will be sent to one of its retail locations for sale.  The inspection center will have more than 20 car lifts, mechanics area, spray booths, wash stations, and other car service features.  The center will be its largest in the country, eventually feeding at least 11 retail locations. The retail locations will stretch from Detroit to Erie, Pennsylvania.


The inspection center will process approximately 56 vehicles per day.  It will utilize the large parking lot for unfinished and finished cars. The center will employee between 85 to 100 people.  The company will be conducting a fit out for new offices and bathrooms within the facility and will be investing more than $2 million into its operation.

I have a fledging Urban Farm in Euclid on the old St. Roberts site.  Check it out: https://www.facebook.com/VeteransCombatingChildHungerFarm/photos/a.652743118196333.1073741828.652643151539663/831717496965560/?type=3&theater

This is a great re-use of this land.  What if all of the unused/underused land in Euclid became urban farm?  Sure, it wouldn't generate a whole lot of tax revenue, but neither is unused land!  Plus, think of all the good an urban farm does; environmental, humanistic, aesthetic.

Thats exactly why we do it.  Utilize vets who want to be used.  Reduce municipal budget spent on maintaining these lots.  Teach kids/community about soil/environment/nutrition/sustainability.  As we get better we will find a way to monetize parts of it to self sustain but first we are learning to work with our soil.  City of Euclid aka Paul Beno have been very helpful obtaining leases/permissions etc.

Simon's Supermarket opening Feb. 4 aims to be fresh food oasis in former food desert
By Janet H. Cho

Simon Hussain didn't want to simply open a supermarket in the Euclid Richmond Shopping Center; he wanted to open a neighborhood grocery store that would draw people now driving miles out of the city to feed their families.

On Feb. 4, when he formally welcomes customers to the grand opening of his third family-owned food market, he will find out if he succeeded.

More importantly, his store will provide an oasis of fresh food in an area that both the city and state had previously identified as a food desert -- a census tract with a poverty rate of 20 percent or higher, where residents live more than 1/2 a mile from a full-service supermarket, but may not drive.

Local and state officials believed so strongly in Simon's Supermarket that they awarded Hussain $775,000 in grants and loans to help defray his startup costs: a $250,000 grant and a $400,000 loan from the Healthy Food For Ohio Program; and a $125,000 grant from the City of Euclid's HUD-funded storefront renovation program.

Roger Sikes, program manager for the Cuyahoga County Board of Health's Creating Healthy Communities initiative, said officials are pleased with how the store turned out, as well as how responsive Hussain has been to his neighbors' suggestions. Hussain has a strong track record of listening to his customers.

Gaining a grocery store, especially a locally owned non-chain, is a great step for this neighborhood.  Frankly, I'm surprised the area turned into a food desert in the first place.  It's less than a mile south of the old Euclid Square Mall, which featured a full service Rini-Rego grocery store in its day.  In fact, the shopping center where the current Simon's operates used to support a decent sized Bi-rite as well.  The neighborhood has extensive built-in freeway access, is very close to the Lake county line, and (as the article states) is a in the middle of a dense residential area with several high-rise apartment complexes to the south and west.  I really hope it succeeds.  This region could use another Marc's- or Dave's-type local grocery company.

I do think it's great, but there also is a Giant Eagle and a Dave's less than a mile away. Within 2/3 more miles you have 2 more Dave's, another Marc's, an Aldi, and Sweetberry Fresh Market, and two more Giant Eagle's not far after that. I get the idea that not everyone can drive- but this is hardly a food "desert" when it comes to grocery stores. The writer is exaggerating a bit.

It isn't the writer exaggerating.  "...both the city and state had previously identified as a food desert -- a census tract with a poverty rate of 20 percent or higher, where residents live more than 1/2 a mile from a full-service supermarket, but may not drive."

Poorly written, yes.
"May I drive to the grocery store?"

No you may not.

It's not surprising to me that this area was a "food desert".  It is a geographically isolated area, with the railroad, dead mall and industry, and the Shoreway to the north, more industry to the west, the 90 spur to the East, and the Euclid-Chardon bluff to the south.  Rini-Rego operated out of Euclid Mall which made sense in the heyday of the mall as the center of retail for the region but once that died it was only a matter of time before this little section of town, which has been the poorest section of Euclid going back at least 30 years, did too.

And part of that 10 percent being an Amazon outlet store of unclaimed merchandise sold at a discount.

Oh, I wouldn't worry about that old mall very much. It has been officially condemned and has been completely vacated. All of the churches that were there are gone.


All of this is about to change very soon though and it will include a complete remake of about 65 acres of the site into something pretty awesome.

Oh they've considered it, weighed it against the alternatives, and would love to recommend it if only for a lack of funding.

Bye, Euclid Square Mall; hello Amazon?
Ken Prendergast
May 3, 2017

After 40 years, Euclid Square Mall is destined to be physically replaced by the latest thing in retailing -- E-commerce. The mall, having closed Sept. 19, 2016 after years of limping along with two dozen churches as its remaining tenants, is vacated and officially condemned by the city for safety violations. Euclid Square Mall had succumbed to the changing retail market and population shifts long ago.

Circumstantial evidence suggests the replacement for the 687,000-square-foot shopping mall will be a massive distribution facility for the online retail giant Amazon. Called a Fulfillment Center, the facility would measure at least 650,000 square feet and possibly be as large as 1 million square feet. Based on similar projects elsewhere in Ohio, it would represent a capital investment in facilities and equipment of more than $100 million and result in the hiring of more than 600 permanent jobs.

Euclid Square Mall, now dead, could be demolished for massive industrial project
By Michelle Jarboe

Another dead Northeast Ohio mall could be bulldozed for an industrial project, under plans being floated by an Atlanta-area developer that has constructed sprawling distribution centers for Amazon.com and other retail behemoths.

On Tuesday, Euclid's Planning and Zoning Commission will consider a request to rezone a 66-acre site, spanning Euclid Square Mall and a few adjacent parcels, from retail to industrial use. Documents filed with the city identify Seefried Industrial Properties, Inc., of Georgia as the potential buyer of the properties.

And those documents show that Seefried wants to construct a massive building - 650,000 to 1 million square feet - where the vacant mall now stands.

Info above says 4 local Amazon facilities are rumored to be in the overall Amazon plans for CLE.

The Euclid mall spot would appear to be a full Amazon warehouse/fulfillment center (not sure if large or small package.. they sometimes build both in an area... to handle different types of products). This is an unusual urban location for an Amazon FC (my company ships to dozens of them, most rural...)

The recently opened Twinsburg facility is a sortation center that merely sorts orders sent from other Amazon facilities down to the post office closest to delivery address.

The smaller, already operating Euclid facility is a delivery center, from which packages from other Amazon locations are sent directly to consumers via couriers, etc

The 4th facility rumored is quite possibly a Prime Now hub from which items could be delivered to consumers within hours of order.
