Downtown Gateway megaproject coming to light

This unofficial massing requested by NEOtrans shows the scale of a
potential Gateway District megaproject. The Bedrock Real Estate
portion alone (portrayed here by the two grayish-blue towers at left)
was described by sources as being larger than what was proposed
for nuCLEus. That doesn’t include the Harris-Blitzer Sports & En-
tertainment portion which could feature an apartment tower, seen
beyond the right field wall of Progressive Field (foreground).
This view looks north from Interstate 90 with Ontario Street
at left and East 9th Street at right (Ian McDaniel).

Although the now-dead nuCLEus plan enticed us with its promise of a large-scale project for seven years, there are growing indications that a potential megaproject in downtown Cleveland’s Gateway District could be even larger. And hopefully it won’t tease Clevelanders for as long only to reach an unsatisfactory conclusion.
