Recently, Forbes named Cleveland one of 15 U.S. Cities’ Emerging Downtown areas. Clevelanders are used to being a part of lists, for better or worse, and it seems that patience has finally paid off. U.S. Census data shows nearly doubled population growth, in turn leading to an increase in housing and community investment. Our downtown area is no stranger to adversity, however it truly seems things are beginning to turn the proverbial corner.
In recent years, additions such as the Aquarium, the Horsehoe Casino and the planned Global Center for Health Innovation join the ranks of the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame, the Q and more! Hotel and housing revitalization projects are leading to residential and visitor growth in record numbers. Our diverse area, rich with unique destinations is definitely something to write home about- or to make it home altogether. Wineries, winter attractions, beaches and recreational activities give us much to enjoy, and only for a short drive. Culturally rich neighborhoods are overflowing with great food and entertainment, each visit different from the last.
As an advocate of the local areas, and a true Clevelander at heart- it is inspiring and enforces exactly what I do every single day- which is sell the Cleveland version of the American Dream. Undoubtedly each town across the country has its draw, but Cleveland and all it has to offer is undeniably unique. Keeping up with all things Northeast Ohio isn’t easy, but it’s worth it- If you are considering a new neighborhood, or relocating to Cleveland- let’s get together and start planning! I would love to share everything I know about this hot growing area we call home!
