Thoughts on this? I'd need to know more details, but I was always hoping someone would come through and make TC a cool place for the general public, not turn it into an office building. Also, if this hurts the CIFF then I'm all the way out.
I always thought that if they made the downstairs with the fountain into a indoor version of East 4th with seating for restaurants and bars around the fountain would be cool.

With how Cleveland winters are, I would think a indoor space that people could go out have dinner, bar hop, go see a movie, etc at would be a big draw. Pair that with it being connected to the casino and the skywalk to the Q, I'm surprise Gilbert hasn't try to develop it that way.

Bring some of the restaurants from the upper floors downstairs and make the 2nd/3rd floor into the offices and shared workspaces like is suggested in the article.

Isnt Tower City one of the most well known sex trafficing locations in Ohio outside of I-75? Way too much trash there on a daily basis to turn it into something nice.

I think instead of more dining locations that will end up canabalizing another, we really need to bring companies back to downtown. Leverage that into more people moving back downtown.

Side note: does anyone go out downtown this time of year (dinner or clubs)? Also how had West 6th handled the Flats resurgence?

Giving Blockland an identifiable home would be a huge win for our city. Blockchain technology is still young enough that Cleveland can be a midwestern hub. Putting all of that in one building would be great so long as the main floor does have some commercial use since it is the central station for the RTA.

Interesting read. I gotta say, the entire blog site itself is rather cool. Lots of great information about development happening around the Cleveland area. Exciting news.

Stark Enterprises' nuCLEus project is back in the news, with a scaled down version now being proposed.

Here's a link to a PDF with detailed information about the project:

I keep track of skyscraper development.

Seeing the struggles of Midwestern cities to build even one new 50-story building contrasts with places like Seattle where they have a few being completed soon and another 15 50-40 story towers to be completed by 2022.

Cleveland needs to get some of that Amazon lovin' and take more of that new economy stuff from the West Coast.

Hopefully blockland does it.

Amazon has 2 DCs and own a small company here in Mayfield.

What was the yellow building they (I think?) just completed downtown? Pretty decently tall for Cleveland standards.

I think I answered it myself. The Beacon.

I know this is the wrong place, but lots of cool things going on in Phoenix too, and I work next to most of it. A Renausance times, wolf ledges, the aquarium was just built (best in the southwest, really awesome been to Clevelan one, much better)

Also they are building a multi billion dollar theme park in casa grande about an hour from phoenix that is to compete with Disney World. Its an extreme sports park with rock climbing, water slides, racing, a wild life park, etc. Supposed to be really awesome

https://www.abc15.com/news/region-central-southern-az/casa-grande/dreamport-villages-massive-amusement-park-slated-for-casa-grande-finalizing-any-day-now

But don't get me wrong, really happy for the Cleveland development, but excited to see Phoenix become an even more world class destination city.

I was born in Glendale and grew up all around the valley (outside Litchfield, Peoria, Glendale) and I really don't recognize Phoenix anymore . I wanted to move back when I was in my 20s but not anymore, if Phoenix turns into a Reno ill be pretty bummed. Hate to go all eco-fascist but the desert wasnt designed to handle this kind of population or this type of infrastructure; saddens me to see the Salt River Project effectively being used to turn the surface of the sun into this. I spent my early childhood in the boonies with our animals, a couple acres of dirt, 4 grapefruit trees, sonic booms and miles of desert tho so my AZ youth was a little different than the Bill n Ted area of my later childhood.

BTW Is this the same Casa Grande?
