I noticed that they updated the Stonebridge website. There isn't any new information, but kinda interesting to check out and nice to see that the site has been updated:
http://www.stonebridge-condominiums.com/plaza/index.htm

Here is what it says for phase 5:
UNDER CONSTRUCTION – JUNE 2007 OCCUPANCY
-Affordably priced, starting at $146,000.
-Choose from 1-bedroom, 2-bedrooms or penthouses ($300,000 - $1 million).

Phases
Stonebridge has been carefully planned in 12 distinct phases.

Phases 1-3
Stonebridge began in 1999 when ground was broken for the first Stonebridge apartment building—Stonebridge Waterfront. Office/retail space was added as part of Phase 3 with the completion of Stonebridge Center, which hosts a number of commercial tenants, including the award-winning Ponte Vecchio Restaurant.

Phases 4-6
Phase 4 added condominiums to the mix with the advent of The Towers at Stonebridge. Currently, The Plaza at Stonebridge (Phase 5) is under construction with its 108 luxury condominium units, and work is underway for 35,000 square feet of additional office/retail space to be known as Stonebridge Square (Phase 6).


About Stonebridge Square
Currently under construction, Stonebridge Square represents 35,000 square feet of newly renovated office and retail space. Adjacent to The Plaza at Stonebridge, the new Stonebridge Square promises to be home to a number of retail shops designed to cater to the day-to-day needs of Stonebridge residents, including a deli, gourmet grocery store and coffee shop.

A focal point of the project will be its expansive skylight and foliage-filled atrium that will provide shoppers with a peaceful, out-of-the-way place to sit and enjoy a cup of coffee along with a good book or the morning newspaper. A glass skywalk will also connect Stonebridge Square with direct access to the historic Superior Viaduct Bridge—another scenic location for walking or reading.


Phases 7-9
Reaching out along the banks of the Cuyahoga River, Riverfront at Stonebridge (Phase 7) is projected to break ground in 2008 for its 30 riverfront townhomes. Each of these custom-built units will be set in a triplex building featuring a two-car garage with direct access to the unit. Large balconies, rooftop terraces and spectacular views of downtown and the river await the future residents of Riverfront.

Shortly afterward, Phase 8 is scheduled to begin with the development of 68 loft townhouses. Of course all of these new downtown residents will require additional retail sources for dining, shopping and servicing, so Stonebridge Commons (Phase 9) will become a massive 285,000-squre-foot office/retail complex.

Phases 10-12
The final three phases of development, scheduled for completion by 20??, will connect Stonebridge with Lake Erie via the construction of 1,200+ new housing units and another 650,000 square feet of office/retail space. All of the supporting service amenities, as well as the necessary infrastructure will be in place so that, upon completion, Stonebridge residents can live, work and play in the same thriving area that's just walking distance from downtown.

I'm not sure what phase this is, but it has a very interesting look to it:

Comparing it to other images on the site, I'd say that's a model for phases 10-12. Fortunately, it looks as though those have made accomodations for first-floor retail/offices.

There is an updated site plan.  Notice the proposed change to Center St. as it gets close to the Old River channel.  I agree that the picture from above is probable phases 10-12, judging from the shapes on the site plan.

See the older site plan posted here and then look at the area around Main Avenue Bridge.  You'll see a proposed pedestrian connection to the East Bank.

Bob Corna, partner and architect of the Stonebridge development, is a big proponent of redeveloping the downtown lakefront with publicly accessible parks. He doesn't agree with Stark's vision for the lakefront.

I have no doubt most, if not all of this will get done; and not that far in the distant future.  Corna-Price have near-perfectly engineered a carrot-stick approach with sexy current development fanning desire (and projected home-sales) for just around-the-corner development...

I can't quite tell from the schematic, but are they planning on keeping the old Spaghetti Warehouse loft apt building?  I sure hope so.  Melding old + new has made Stonebridge amazingly interesting, intriguing.

OK.  So when do we start phase 6?  New thread....yeah!! :lol:

Yeah, so now that Stonebridge Phase 5 is essentially complete, does anyone have news on the next phases of Stonebridge? I think that this last spring we heard that when Phase 5 was complete, they would announce plans for Phase 6 and 7 together (the office conversion of the Tenk Building and the townhouses that fill in the "hole" next to the viaduct and Washington St. I think).  But there hasn't been much news since.

boy from all this PR released press it makes you believe Cleveland is the only place booming when the rest of the country has come to a near halt with new residential contruction. Lets see SB 5 get even close to selling out first.

I'm not saying everything is all sunshine everywhere but "near halt"? Don't get me wrong - the market has definitely slowed, but it really depends on who you talk to...

Just an example - Chicago has seven residential towers over 700 feet tall (taller than the Terminal Tower) under construction (as in, cranes are in the air, floors are going up). I highly recommend the following section at the skyscraperpage.com forum - a rundown of most North American (and a few European) cities construction.

Is there a crash in the future? Who knows, but as nice as the development in Cleveland is (especially during a real estate turndown), it's a blip on the radar compared to its peers.

So what are the sales/occupancy number?

I don't think Cleveland will crash, we have been smart and not overbuilt like many cities.  We don't have a glut of NEW homes/condos/townhomes sitting on the market. 

Currently in the city itself we do not have the type of housing first time and young people want.  I think that, that factor plays in our favor.  In the next three years when several project are completed I think the interest in city living will continue to rise and be more popular than ever.

I'm hearing rumblings that all is not perfect in Camelot. Possibly K&D has stretched themselves too thin...trades being delayed extensively with payments, etc. Maybe it's just a blip, but he hasn't always operated this way, so it's getting some people's attention.

Machine leaving longtime Flats home
Workers join new Strongsville employer; developer mulls Stonebridge expansion
 

By STAN BULLARD
4:30 am, May 12, 2008

Tenk Machine & Tool Co. is disappearing from Cleveland's Flats in a deal that has reopened the closed Demag Plastics Group plant in Strongsville and might allow the Stonebridge mixed-use complex to expand.

A skeleton crew last week arranged drill bits, lathes and cranes for an equipment auction at 10:30 a.m. tomorrow, May 13, at Tenk's 2111 Center St. location. However, most of the 35 workers who were Tenk employees already are working at the former Demag plant that newly formed parts and equipment maker JSM Cleveland will use to serve Tenk customers and others, said Mike White, JSM Cleveland's sales and engineering manager....

The Left Bank building is owned by Mr. Newman, who is the executive director of the Flats Oxbow Association, a CDC for the Flats area.  The building is the most poorly maintained residential building in the area except for CMHA, but the views from the units must be awesome.  Mr. Newman has been delinquent paying his taxes for the last few years: http://auditor.cuyahogacounty.us/repi/taxbill.asp?txtParcel=00319007

He's smart: collect rent, don't pay taxes, don't maintain your building, and as the neighborhood sprouts new condos and apartments (and someday a towpath trail), sell the place!  Just what we all want from CDC directors.

The Tenk building IS awesome. I am confused though since I thought K&D acquired the Tenk Building last year...or that is what they publically said. This deal is not complete? At the time my understanding the plan was for KD was going to raze it to put up more glass or  faux brick stuff (what is there is fine, but enough already-lets keep some diversity, something that makes me love the flats). I feel my recollection is correct b/c I was immensely disappointed it would be knocked down. It may not matter b/c  a a while back word was new  development on the west bank was on hold indefinitely.

The Left Bank building is amazing but needs work. I love the top floor space. It looks right out on the iron ghost and has a spectacular city view. The Superior Viaduct would be your patio.

^I agree. All the plans that I saw showed that Tenk was going to be reused. They were going to expand a bit with some glass and steel. K & D, like any smart developer, sought control of the land via purchase options. If the market goes sour, then they don't have to exercise those options.

I think a saw the super duper crazy plans that had a water park and star ship. Kidding a little, but in all seriousness, I was told face to face by someone quite involved with this project that TENK was a goner. I do not remember who, but someone such as price or corna.  I only remember b/c I was really upset and could not understand why it could not be rehabbed for a new use.  While it is not like it is a spectaculat building, it is an example of a classic flat warehouse and should be preserved.
