Cleveland Arts District Master Plan

Cleveland, Ohio    map
Status: Plan

Building on the firm's decades of involvement with Playhouse Square Center, Westlake Reed Leskosky is currently working with a developer to master plan an urban arts district in downtown Cleveland. The area in question encompasses approximately 1 million square feet at the nexus of several important educational and cultural institutions, including: Cleveland State University, Playhouse Square Center Theatre District, Cuyahoga Community College, Gateway Sports and Entertainment District (including Progressive Field), and historic Lakeview Cemetery. The goal is to redevelop this key section of downtown into a vibrant destination featuring music,
theatre and entertainment-related venues as well as housing, retail
and office uses that complement the adjacent facilities and neighborhoods.
