Developers selected for downtown lakefront mixed-used development

Recently, rumors circulated that the city and county were planning to develop/redevelop the space between Cleveland Browns Stadium (now "First Energy Field"), the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame and Burke Lakefront Airport. Finally, something has materialized in the form of a blog post on Cleveland City Hall's website, and a developer has been chosen to carry out the plan.

The land to be developed is now owned by the Port of Cleveland and is used for industrial shipping purposes. The plan is to include housing, a new pedestrian bridge connecting the Great Lakes Science Center with Voinovich Park, and a new permanent marina.
“Development of the Lakefront is important for the continuing economic growth of our city as well as providing amenities for residents and visitors to enjoy,” said Mayor Jackson.  “I thank the Lakefront Advisory Committee members for their hard work in reviewing the submissions and their recommendation of Trammell Crow and Cumberland who have exceptional development skills, a willingness to invest, and a shared vision for a lively waterfront and I look forward to taking the next steps in the process.”
  • Phase 1: Retail and restaurant development between the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame and the Great Lakes Science Center and along the East 9th Street Pier; and an office, retail, and residential development on Dock 32.
  • Phases 2 and 3 would entail mainly apartments and public waterfront amenities on Docks 30 and 28B.
