The prestigious Cleveland Arts Prize is normally reserved for folks whose work has somehow enriched life in Northeast Ohio. So, it was without precedent when the Gordon Square Arts District (GSAD), the arts-focused economic driver of the Detroit-Shoreway neighborhood, nabbed the 2010 prize.
Like many inner-ring suburbs, this once-thriving community hemorrhaged residents over the past few decades. But thanks in no small part to GSAD and the well-run Detroit Shoreway Community Development Organization, the neighborhood is again one of the fastest-growing areas of Cleveland. Long-standing anchors like Cleveland Public Theatre and the recently restored Capitol Theatre are now joined by new retail, bars, restaurants, and entertainment outlets.
The Cleveland EcoVillage is a national demonstration project for ecologically responsible urban living. Incorporated into its design are principles of energy efficiency, transit-oriented living, eco-friendly construction and sustainability. Nearby, the Lorain Avenue Antiques District is the largest concentration of antique dealers on the West Side.

all aboard: urban transit stations redeveloped as neighborhood amenities
Rachel Kaufman and Joe Baur
Thursday, January 30, 2014
Even as the economy recovers, Americans are driving less and taking public transit more. With all that demand comes congestion and backups at major rail hubs. But smart cities are anticipating and adapting so that the transit station of tomorrow is a true neighborhood amenity.
