Below is the same view from July of 2016.

East 9th and Euclid is hopping!

The Hickox Building was replaced by a very cool midcentury style building for Bond Clothing, which was replaced in the early 1980s for a bank skyscraper. Interestingly, the building in the left foreground, the Schofield Building, will open this spring as a Kimpton Hotel. In this photo, Shorpyites are enjoying the Schofield in its original terra cotta and brick splendor, which was been restored/replicated. The building was tin canned about 60+ years ago, which also resulted in most of the protruding terra cotta ornament being hammered off the building. The replicated pieces look marvelous. Out of the image to the left is the Cleveland Trust rotunda, restored and just reopened as a full service grocery store, connected to a Marcel Breuer skyscraper thiat is now apartments and a hotel. Barely visible at the right edge of the photo is the Huntington Building, with a fabulous bank lobby and more than 1 million square feet of space of office space. It's about to be restored for offices, a hotel, apartments, and a business incubator.
