As recently as last year, the historic Colonial and Euclid Arcades downtown suffered from 40 percent vacancy. But oh, how fortunes have changed. The once-moribund properties, rebranded as 5th Street Arcades
, have gone from half-empty to almost completely full. Much of the thanks goes to Dick Pace of Cumberland Development, who has lured numerous new tenants boasting fresh concepts.
Some of the new tenants include Chocolate 76, Olive and The Grape, Natural Effect, Soulcraft Gallery, Studio 33, C’mon Let’s Eat, Pour Cleveland, The Tea Lab and The Artist Shop, to name but a few.
Fresh Water photographer Bob Perkoski spent some time in the arcades window shopping with his camera.
