Downtown Cleveland is the central business district of the City of Cleveland and Northeast Ohio, United States. Reinvestment in the area in the mid-1990s spurred a rebirth that continues to this day, with over $3.5 billion in residential and commercial developments slated for the area over the next few years. While much of the city’s population decamped to surrounding suburbs in the second half of the 20th century, downtown Cleveland gained population in the first decade of the 21st century, growing from 7,261 in 1990 to 9,599 as of the 2000 Census. In 2005, the Brookings Institution called it one of America’s “Emerging Downtowns” because of its 32.2% growth over the period. As of the 2010 Census the population of Downtown Cleveland was 11,693 making it the biggest downtown district in Ohio.
Downtown Cleveland workforce numbers over 100,000, and the central business district contains over 16 million square feet of rentable office space. Both these commercial statistics lead the state of Ohio.
The heart of downtown and the city’s first settled area, Public Square was laid out by city founder Moses Cleveland in 1796 and has remained largely unchanged. It consists of a large open space, cut into quadrants by Ontario Street and Superior Avenue. Public Square is the symbolic heart of the city, and has hosted presidents, vast congregations of people, and a free annual 4th of July concert by the Cleveland Orchestra.
Notable buildings on Public Square include the Terminal Tower home to Tower City, 200 Public Square – the former BP Building (renamed in 2005), as well as Key Tower, the tallest building in Ohio and one of the tallest in the United States. Public Square is also home to the historic Old Stone Church completed in 1855. The classic Higbee’s department store building is home to the Cleveland Horseshoe Casino, since its opening on May 14, 2012.
