CLEVELAND — The concrete sidewalk that showed up outside Euclid Grand in downtown Cleveland is temporary, according to the building's owner, Alto Partners.

The temporary replacement got a lot of attention over the weekend after downtown resident Pete Marek posted a picture of the newly-poured concrete.

Alto Partners CEO Michael Sabracos tells News 5 Cleveland the concrete was the best temporary solution to complete the sidewalk so that it can be opened back up to foot traffic soon. Euclid Grand is waiting for the proper brick so that it can replace the sidewalk with the proper pattern and colors. Sabracos says coronavirus delays have kept suppliers from having the right replacement bricks until summer 2021.

Euclid Grand's first tenants are scheduled to move in this week onto some of the lower floors while construction continues on the higher floors. Construction is expected to be finished by the end of 2020, which means the sidewalk is expected to reopen for pedestrians in early 2021.

The full project is expected to cost about $80 million dollars, creating 240 residential units, 200 parking spaces in two levels below the building, and 18,000 square feet of retail along Euclid Avenue.
