One of the more exciting pieces of development news, I think, isn't really news yet, but more of an observation. It's no secret that Cleveland is booming and downtown is thriving. However, one of the sore spots in downtown is the long-abandoned section of Euclid Avenue between East 9th and East 12th Street. Euclid Avenue was once the crown jewel road of Cleveland, but much of its richness fell into decline between the 1930s and 1960s, with Millionaire's Row turning into a couple miles of abandonment. While development east of Cleveland State has been sporadic, Playhouse Square and the East 4th District have been huge factors in bringing this street back to life. But the sector in between has had trouble being anything but abandoned. Now that the Metropolitan at the 9 and a couple of surrounding buildings have come back to life, it appears this life is FINALLY starting to spread east. Below is the scene of some of the scaffolding that goes down Euclid. I have no idea what all these projects are, but I am eager to find out and see this come to life!
