Winter Can’t Slow Down Development in the HTC
While it has admittedly been one of the warmer Cleveland winters on record, current developments in the HTC continue to make progress.  The framing is up on the Link59 project in Midtown and renovations are underway in the neighboring Phoenix Building. Dealer Tire is putting the finishing touches on its new headquarters and parking garage.  Construction continues on Case Western Reserve University’s new Health Education Campus in the middle of the Cleveland Clinic campus.  Developers broke ground on the mixed-use Centric project in University Circle that will include 272 apartments and 27k SF of commercial space and site work is now underway.  More new housing will soon be available in the HTC with One University Circle adding 270 apartments and the Innerbelt Lofts adding 56 new units.

New Report Provides Insights on Biomedical Growth in Cleveland
