The 20- to 30-year strategy sets the stage for historic development of a 15-minute neighborhood and 18-hour city along the Cuyahoga River
September 15, 2021 [CLEVELAND] – Today, Bedrock and the City of Cleveland unveiled a comprehensive proposal to transform the Cuyahoga riverfront in downtown Cleveland, connecting downtown and its residents and visitors to the riverfront through an approach prioritizing sustainability, equity and accessibility. The long-term vision hinges on a public private partnership with Bedrock and the City rebuilding the urban infrastructure with a focus on sustainability and resiliency, including new public open spaces, enhanced pathways to the riverfront, and transit-oriented development conforming to the recently adopted guidelines of the City’s Vision of the Valley.
The public investments will enable additional private investments and create opportunities for downtown property owners and developers at large to develop commercial, residential, retail, entertainment and adaptive reuse projects. In turn these developments will spur job growth and provide opportunities for new affordable homes for renters and owners in a diverse and inclusive riverfront setting. The 20- to 30-year plan will create a 15-minute neighborhood and 18-hour city for residents, investors, professionals, and visitors in Cleveland’s growing city center.
