How can we ensure this new development embeds naturally into the current culture of the surrounding area?

I think this project is a beautiful addition to the neighborhood with both single family townhouses and affordable apartments. The design is well thought out and fits in well with the surrounding buildings.

Great look from the developer. High end materials (standing seam and hardie board aren't cheap) and built at a very complimentary scale to the neighborhood. I'm excited to see this project move forward... Read more...

"Along W. 43rd Place will be four smaller townhomes, known as mews, with an eye towards affordability." I love the focus and intentionality of this project on affordability. I strongly welcome this project... Read more...

The overwhelming majority of comments from within the block group are positive. Keep up the great work! Get it built and then build about 50 more of these around Cleveland :)

What other questions or suggestions do you have about this project?

As density increases, it would make sense to add a red line stop at 44th so that we can continue towards a less car-dependent city. It's about a mile from 44th and Lorain to either the W. 25th or W. 65th... Read more...

I worry about boxing in the existing homes along W 44th and adding more illegal hotels. The current space operates as a full-time airbnb, not an apartment building. If they're going to run a hotel, they... Read more...

I'm supportive of this project- we need more density to continue to support small businesses in the area. It's also great that all of the apartments will include balcony or patio space!

What other questions or suggestions do you have about this project?

I think we need more affordable housing in the neighborhood. Maybe studio/efficiency style apartments.

Great project, aesthetically strong. Trailblazing projects for this corridor need community support.

Where do you think medium-density housing (townhouses and apartment buildings) make sense in the neighborhood:

A. Too much high density in OC, focus on medium density. Cleveland is not growing, let’s stop acting like it is the fastest growing city. More balconies and greenery needed!

100% agree we should focus on quality of life! I’d like to stay in the city if we decide to raise a family (humans or fur babies) and we desperately need to start designing with women and young kids in... Read more...

They absolutely make sense in the area. Further, the median density is an ideal transition into a single family neighborhood.

What other questions or suggestions do you have about this project?

Overall, this plan looks fantastic. The diversity of housing options and price points is great. Would like to see a little more landscaping and trees. There are several older trees that will likely be... Read more...

What other questions or suggestions do you have about this project?

Overall, a great diverse project for different types of residents and families. I wish that more than half of the lot space in the apartment block wasn't dedicated to parking, but until we increase walk-ability... Read more...

Both on commercial and secondary corridors, but on commercial corridors there should be more mixed used by adding commercial uses to the ground floor of buildings.

Certainly, there are examples of where medium-density housing could fit in any of these areas, but Secondary Corridors (b) probably makes the most sense.
