Downtown Cleveland is a collection of five unique neighborhoods that collectively create one large community with all the amenities at your doorstep. The Downtown neighborhood has world-class theatre at PlayhouseSquare, riverfront access in the Flats, nightlife and entertainment in the Warehouse District, professional sports in Gateway and a new college town over in Campus District, formerly known as the Quadrangle. Don't forget about the eclectic mix of some of the region's finest restaurants, affordable residential and office opportunities and easy assess to transportation.
As a neighborhood that is beginning to experience a new era of investment and progress, there can inly be one word to describe Downtown: Thriving. From the ongoing revitalization of the Flats East Bank to include a public park, beach, and a boardwalk, to the West Sixth Street public realm improvements and the redesign of Public Square to making it more pedestrian and green friendly, Downtown is on the move. Walk down Euclid Avenue and notice the transformation of the streetscape with the installment of the planters and storefronts that are gradually being filled with long-term, unique tenants that appeal to the business and residential communities. Farther down Euclid, PlayhouseSquare is welcoming new tenants into the District of Design and student- and residential- housing transformations are taking place at cleveland State University in Campus District.
The Old Stone Church is the longest-standing establishment on Public Square since 1820, earning its name from the gray, rough-hammered sandstone of its original 1834 construction. Over the years, the church has withstood two devastating fires, due to dedicated and historically influenced members who refused to let the church close its doors. The church was restored in 1884, creating the version that is essentially what is standing on Public Square today. The church features four stained-glass windows by Lois C. Tiffany, a triple window by John La Farge and a 1976 organ built by the Cleveland Holtkamp Organ Co. As part of a 2.4 million renovation in 1998, a new steeple was installed to replace the one that was removed in 1896. Today, the Old Stone Church maintains a strong presence in Cleveland, attracting some of the key business and political leaders to its membership. The church still offers extremely beneficial services to Cleveland, including a school to help at-risk-mothers graduate high school.
Being in close proximity to restaurants, sports venues, the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame.. anywhere you want to be, you're right next door."
