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.

Artists are often the first to move into urban neighborhoods, and also the first to move out when rents escalate. Yet in the post-recession landscape, many communities are working with artists to transform blight, engage residents and reimagine their neighborhoods.
from bust to boom: how the city's brand is on the rise, within our borders and beyond
Thursday, June 19, 2014
There has been a flood of new businesses that tout the city through an assortment of Cleveland-themed apparel and products or by integrating the city name right into the company’s branding. Many point to the recent recession as the dawn of this entrepreneurial movement, which coincided with a newfound pride of place.
now schooling: cooking up a solution to the growing culinary talent gap

Thursday, June 05, 2014
As our restaurant scene continues to thrive, local chefs and owners increasingly are finding it difficult to fill all open positions. Institutions in town, including an accredited culinary school, have their merits, say local restaurateurs, but they also have a way to go before they reach the point where they'll plug the culinary talent gap.
