Cleveland's Lakefront ReDevelopment

Recommended Posts

Here is a link to the lakefront redevelopment plans for cleveland... I spoke with a planner from the CPC and she said this project is supposed to take up to 50 years to complete. Personally i think this is a rediculous timeline. and the uses and lack of convention center/ hotel/ entertainment on the lakefront itself make it basically useless as an asset to the city. One should note when looking at the plans that there is a blough running east/west that must be bridged or graded in such a way to make a flowing connection from the lakefront to the city. so what do you people think?

I dont like the timetable either but it seems like a nice plan. When I was in Cleveland a few years back I thought it was great what they were doing with the waterfront and this is a continuation of that. You may not like the fact that there is no convention center or hotel but all that parkland near the lake is a greater asset IMO.

It looks like Cleveland keeps trying to regain its footing after decades of decline. I know a lot about Cleveland, a lot of my family lives there. I've been there twice and I just love its site on Lake Erie. I truly hate the bad reputation it has as a declining rust belt city, but the truth is, it's metropolitan population is growing, and the city's population decline is halting. I hope it revives, and it once again becomes a great lake front city.

I look at this plan and see a lot of green space, but how much is actually usable parkland and how much is just green on the map?

To me a lot of it looked like usuable park land. I dont know if you really want a convention center right on the water anyway. Detroit did it and it really hasnt panned out so great. It blocked off the city from the river and just now is the city realizing what an asset the waterway is. Im sure they can find another spot in the city for a convention center. I say leave the water open for the people.
