Our latest podcast was centered around housing development in Cleveland, and we had guests Teresa Alto and Chad Jones of Cleveland Bricks, a real estate developer that focuses on the Ohio City, Tremont, and Detroit Shoreway neighborhoods.
After the intros, we delve into an interesting discussion what makes Cleveland unique for homeowners and what the market is like right now. We also discuss the bar and restaurant scene in Cleveland and how that ties into the housing market.
Next, we discuss the Beer of the Week, which included the Irishtown Bend Red Ale, which is a special brew from Market Garden. $1 from every pint sold supports the Irishtown Bend Project, a new green space and park proposal in Ohio City. Our Poll of the Week was if we thought the Cleveland Indians are serious World Series contenders (most agreed they are). We wrapped up sports talking about the Browns and Hard Knocks, focusing on the Corey Coleman trade, the Antonio Calloway drama, and what seems to be a more intense Hue Jackson. Dan also gives some thoughts on who he thinks will start this upcoming season.
The episode wraps up with a discussion of our top five favorite Cleveland architecture, and then a preview of some weekend events happening in Cleveland, including the 120th Feast of the Assumption (Aug. 15-18; Little Italy), The Burning River Fest (Aug. 17-18; Whiskey Island), and the Flats Festival of the Arts (Aug. 18-19; East bank of the Flats).
