University Circle could see parking lot become $100 million tech, office and apartment complex | cleveland.com

The ambitious proposal would fill a gap in a market that, though flush with hospitals, museums and schools, lacks modern office buildings to house multiple tenants and enough places for visitors and residents to park.

Named Intesa — an Italian word meaning “understanding,” “agreement” or “accord” — the development would be one of the largest in University Circle, where construction has flourished despite a rocky economy.

"We’re the first to admit that in the Cleveland marketplace, the aspiration of this - it’s a significant aspiration," said Chris Ronayne, president of University Circle Inc., the nonprofit group that owns most of the project site. “But we’re being aspirational here. We think this is a one-of-a-kind site that has tremendous potential as a tech center.”

America’s Prettiest Neighborhoods - University Circle - Forbes Magazine

University Circle, Cleveland, Ohio

With a symphony orchestra, an art museum, a natural history museum and planetarium, and a botanical garden, Cleveland’s University Circle offers a wide and exciting array of ways to pass the time, enjoy some high-end food, or consume world-class culture, all within a walkable area of town that features three notable colleges. “People from the neighborhood kick off summer with Parade the Circle, a cool mishmash of people wearing artfully made costumes and paper-mache masks,” says Williams. “It is beautiful any time of year, but I was there last October, and the fall color was astounding.”

We couldn’t agree more and UCUMC is happy to be a part of it.

Architect Ralph Johnson’s new Tinkham Veale University Center at CWRU will bring 21st-century flair to University Circle | cleveland.com

Born out of the union of Western Reserve University and the Case Institute of Technology in 1967, CWRU has grown over the decades without a strong campus center to unify its two halves.

That’s about to change. The university plans to break ground next spring on the $50 million Tinkham Veale University Center, a centrally located building intended to give CWRU a 24/7 student hangout, a home for student organizations, a jumping-off point for campus tours and a big community gathering space.

The design for the 82,000-square-foot building, released to The Plain Dealer by the university, has a decidedly 21st-century look, with thrusting, wedge-like shapes and sloping green roofs rising two stories out of the ground.

Given its location northeast of Severance Hall between Bellflower Road, Euclid Avenue and East Boulevard, the center will be a highly visible new landmark in University Circle, Cleveland’s cultural, educational and medical hub.

Case Western Reserve University: Trendiest “School that Flies Under the Academic Radar…But Shouldn’t - HuffPost College

Ranked the #41 best national university by the U.S. News, this school definitely flies under the academic radar. But with a student body whose top majors include biomedical engineering, there’s no denying that Case kids are smart. Very smart. Yet we rarely hear about Case in the news. Until, that is, the numbers for 2011 applications came rolling in. Case’s applications had sky-rocketed by 44.51%. Rick Bischoff, vice president for enrollment at the Ohio university, attributed the dramatic rise to recruitment. He said counselors visited 900 high schools, compared with 300 high schools three years ago. In addition, the university reached out earlier and more frequently to potential applicants through increased email and other communications. Still, with an increase that large, we think word of Case’s beautiful campus, fiber-optic gigabit Ethernet (for all those future Case engineering majors out there) and expansive academic and research opportunities finally began to reach the masses, drawing in more and more of the goal-oriented, self-motivated students that typify the Case student body.

Congrats to our neighbor!

University Circle United Methodist Church Palm Sunday Service on USTREAM. Now streaming every Sunday at 11am.

Dr. Chalker’s Sermon: “A Mitigation Investigator”. For the last month our great University Circle UMC video crew have been doing what I’d call an Alpha version of streaming our services on USTREAM. It’s still Alpha and a little rough due to our poor AT&T DSL connection but it will be getting better as we refine our techniques and get our new HSD line installed. We recommend listening with headphones. Enjoy! Leave a comment and let us know what you think.

For God’s sake, blog!, pope tells priests - Yahoo! News

Priests are thus challenged to proclaim the Gospel by employing the latest generation of audiovisual resources — images, videos, animated features, blogs, websites — which, alongside traditional means, can open up broad new vistas for dialogue, evangelization and catechesis,” he said.

Looks like Dr. Chalker was way ahead of the curve.
