I had a ball penning this article for this week's Fresh Water. I invite all of my Clevo buddies to give it a look, as well as you unenlightened souls from across the nation.
Writing this one, which summarizes the most exciting projects in the area, I felt an unmistakable energy bubbling. Something is afoot. It's our time to take the spotlight and the powers that be know it.
So, as a Marcel Breuer "brutalist" building (once slated for the wrecking ball) is transforming into an upscale urban entertainment complex, it became obvious that the associated residents would need a grocery store. Why not put it in the adjacent classical style bank rotunda that lay fallow for years (image of both here)?
We can do that.
A few of the other projects in the article: They're turning a failing urban mall into gym. A new skate park is under construction in the Flats, a pedestrian drawbridge is moving closer to fruition in Northcoast Harbor and 1000-seat beer garden is sent to open next month.
So take a peak at the article and as Rachel Maddow says, watch this space.
