|Heinen's Cleveland, left, future Kimpton Hotel center.|
Okay. I admit it already. I fibbed last week when I posted all those photos. I wasn't downtown on a whim, I was covering the opening of the new Heinen's grocery store for Fresh Water.
Here's my article.
|Heinen's grand opening|
I write a lot about CLE in these hallowed pages, but there is something about the Heinen's project that marks a turning point. The grand opening was simply thrilling.
I love that the Heinen family has elevated their family business to unprecedented heights: yes, a local grocer is worthy of selling hamburger, canned corn and paper towels in the grandest of spaces. Yes, every shopper, deserves to browse aisles in a building fit for royalty.
Between this, the new Kimpton Hotel going into the historic Schofield Building across the street and the Metropolitan at the 9 in the center of it all, the corner of Euclid and East 9th Street in Cleveland is soon to be one of the premier addresses in the country.
This is Cleveland, people. There is no stopping this town now.
