I'd love Squirrel Hill Tunnel bike lanes for Peter1948.

And I love the deep history that's almost shrugged off...murals by Jules Guerin are kind of a big deal (famous works done in Washington DC (Lincoln Memorial), San Francisco, and Chicago).

You can basically do an art / architecture around that intersection with the hands of famous names who contributed to these buildings ...George B. Post, Karl Bitter, Francis Davis Millet, Victor David Brenner, Marcel Breuer, Nicola D'Ascenzo, Levi Scofield

But although its a neck-and-neck race, my winner at the moment is the new, drop-dead stunning Marble Room a block down the street in the old National City Bank (now apts) lobby. It doesn't get better than that.

A friend and I were in Tremont yesterday and drove past those new buildings one finds in every other city that look like a giant child piled blocks of giant square plastic blocks one on top of the other. Boring and cookie cutter appearing.

Good to see these monstrosities haven't taken over everywhere and there is still character in Cleveland architecture.

So true. Its nice that Cleveland has some of these great spaces left. There are a few recent spaces (CMA) that are in this league. But not many.

Cleveland is reasonably rich in elegant indoor spaces. Here's the Euclid Arcade, my fav. Would have loved to seen it in the 20s. https://www2.colliers.com/en/Propert...114/USA1006903

Unfortunately it was only in place less than ten years in the new building built in 1924) before being wiped out in the great depression.

Other tidbits, the rooftop where the long standing Metropolitan Restaurant was, was intended as a dirigible transit stop. There was additional upper floors built along the Chester avenue south wing in the 1960s to fulfill continued office space demand. There were some great old photos all along the hallway leading to the metropolitan. It still has the telephone booths and would make great place to film a Film Noir period movie. I can see the chase scene now coming up the Chester side marble steps through the banking hall and down the marble steps to the lower arcade....

Before its construction, there was a large indoor 'cyclorama' in its footprint (i.e. velodrome), and a street, East 10th was there. The adjacent John Hartness Brown building (now under renovation into the Euclid Grand Apartments) had curvilinear corner along East 10th like the Carson Pirie Scott building in Chicago. The JHB building was renovated and added onto which eliminated E. 10 Street and the curved corner.

That stretch will be really nice in a few years in reinvigorating the heart of the downtown core with another 1800 plus residents.

The 720 Euclid site next to the City Club Building is having soil drill tests samples taken the past week. There is an out of town developer looking to build an apartment tower about 20-24 floors with ground floor retail. Ironically the developers name is City Club Apartments (no relation to the City Club of Cleveland).
