Block by Block Around the Square
We’re excited to share that the Block by Block team at Shaker Square is fully staffed. Curb appeal and safety are top concerns for tenants and residents at the Square, and we have contracted with Block by Block to provide improved services from our clean and safe ambassadors seven days a week. Block by Block maintains the cleanliness of the Square and patrols the walks and parking lots.

The Short. Sweet. Film Fest.
Last week, The Short. Sweet. Film Fest. was held at Atlas Cinemas. The unique film experience showcased the works of student to veteran filmmakers across the county, with each film clocking in at less than 40 minutes.

Capital Improvements Starting Soon
According to a recently completed capital repairs assessment, improvements to the Square are expected to cost more than $10M over the next five years. Half of that money has already been raised thanks to the generosity of many donors, so improvements can begin immediately. The priorities for these improvements include roof replacements, façade improvements, electrical and HVAC upgrades, lighting, parking lots, and awnings. Details about these improvements were recently covered in a article.

The Shaker Square ownership team is already working to raise the other $5M needed to complete all of the projects listed in the capital needs assessment, in addition to funds that will support community programming and other activities across Shaker Square. When you see information about fundraising to support Shaker Square, know that these funds are being used to improve the Square for tenants, customers, and residents.
