New Tower on Rosa Parks Circle?


Recommended Posts

According to the permit, 169 Monroe Ave NW is getting structural reinforcing "in anticipation of a future addition of new occupiable floors." Mlive vacated its space, and I hear there's a 10-15 story tower in the works.  Has anyone else heard about this?

Man I hope they put in apartments or condos with balconies. It may sound stupid, but I think residential buildings with balconies in downtown make the streets so much more interactive

That would be a great space for a tower! I'm surprised as it went through a major renovation about 10 years ago. But I can definitely see smaller buildings getting squeezed out as space is harder and harder to find.

Where did you hear this? This would be fantastic.

 

I hope it's 15 to have a little variation between the other buildings nearby. 

 

Also, Subway is long gone too.

169 MONROE AVE NW INTEGRATED ARCHITECTURE 06/21/2021 Structural Reinforcing of existing three-story building in anticipation of a future addition of new occupiable floors (to be executed under separate permit) and infill of existing floor opening between the first and second floors. 

So it sounds like they'll build on top and take out the three story lobby on the SE side? That's exciting, even if the taller portion happens at a separate time.

Also, where did Mlive move? Smaller offices? Still downtown?

Interesting that it's Integrated Architecture. I think that rules out any of the Devos's who primarily use VIA design I believe, or Orion/Wheeler which primarily uses Ghafari Group. And they have that project on Fulton that they haven't kicked off yet. 

Will be interesting to see who the prospective developer is. Who owns 169 Monroe now? Sam Cummings?

If you want to put anything in the paper copy of the Press you talk to someone in Cleveland. The paper gets  printed there also. The building in Walker has been either optioned or sold.  I heard that from 2 different reliable sources. I know there has been an estimate of a proposed improvement to the property
