Midtown renaissance

Stopped in to visit a colleague at Digiknow this past week. What a great setup they have--cool offices carved out of a warehouse, suffused with light filtered through modern interpretations of the traditional Shoji screen, and furnished sparsely but elegantly. The place even includes a workout center with a view of some of the old buildings not yet touched by the Midtown rebirth.

This time of year is a bad time to look at a city and make a decision about what kind of place it is. The dirty snow, the sooted-up buildings, and the streets that haven't been able to be cleaned all winter, can give a poor impression of even a very lively city. Let's hope the vaunted Euclid Corridor development will bring additional incentives to potential Midtown developers, businesses and residents. Because there's some very cool stuff going on there. Now we just have to play catch-up with the rest of the area.
