If you want to see economic activity in Cleveland, head to University Circle. This one-square-mile powerhouse has added 4,500 full-time jobs in the last five years. The 17 major institutions that call UC home can be expected to add another 3,000 over the next five years. All told, the Circle currently employs the equivalent of 82,000 full-time jobs roughly one-eighth of all Cuyahoga County jobs.

During the same 10-year period stretching from 2005 to 2015, the area, on the city's near-east side, will have undergone over $3 billion in new construction. Among the most noteworthy projects are the Stokes Cleveland VA Medical Center, University Hospitals' Cancer Hospital, and the Uptown project, a large mixed-use development underway on Euclid.

Surrounding the world-famous Cleveland Museum of Art, Cleveland Orchestra at Severance Hall and Cleveland Botanical Garden are the neighborhoods of Buckeye/Shaker, historic Wade Park and Glenville, and Fairfax, home to both the Cleveland Clinic and Karamu, one of the nation's premiere African American cultural centers. Each of these unique neighborhoods offer unrivaled proximity to jobs, culture, and entertainment.

what cities like cleveland can learn from memphis

The City of Memphis is on the rise thanks to a growing startup community, investments in bike lanes, a burgeoning arts district and people moving back to the city. Through it all, the city has listened to its residents and embraced "lean urbanism." Cleveland should take heed.
