Playhouse Square wins award for urbanredevelopment


Recommended Posts

Playhouse Square Foundation has won a major national award for urban redevelopment, which has put it in the company of internationally famous building projects such as architect Frank Gehry's Walt Disney Concert Hall in Los Angeles.

The Urban Land Institute, a national, nonprofit education and research organization, announced Friday at its annual awards gala that Playhouse Square was one of nine winners chosen from 19 finalists nationwide.

The institute's announcement stated the Playhouse Square's "two decade-long, $55 million restoration of five architecturally and historically significant theaters is now the shining star in Cleveland's downtown revitalization."

The institute praised Playhouse Square Foundation for developing and owning nearby commercial properties, including a hotel, restaurants and retail space, which "make the Playhouse Square Center virtually self-supporting."

This was out today in the cleveland plain dealer.
