Downtown Cleveland



Moses parted the waters of Lake Erie and climbed out of the Cuyahoga River onto the East Bank of The Flats. No, he did not find any industry or bars, only a forest-covered landscape ripe for developing. He built this city on the flat top of the bluff that overlooks both Lake Erie and the Cuyahoga River.

Downtown Cleveland today is something old Moses Cleaveland could not have imagined. Anchored by its tallest building Terminal Tower, completed in 1930, downtown fans out into a series of attractions and mini-neighborhoods. They range from the North Coast Harbor with the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame and Museum, the Great Lakes Science Center and the Browns Stadium to East 4th Street, with its block of restaurants featuring every cuisine you can imagine, tucked in the shadow of Quicken Loans Arena, where the Cavs and major touring bands play.

Increasingly, downtown has become a real neighborhood, with its resident population doubling in the last decade, as new apartments have gone up and classic office buildings and warehouses have been converted to living spaces. New residents have attracted new amenities such as the shops in the 5th Street Arcades and the new Heinen’s grocery in a spectacular old bank building.
