Emerging Neighborhoods

Broadway/Slavic Village

Once widely known for Polish culture, and now ably served by Slavic Village Development, this historic neighborhood is still home to a diverse population that places family and tradition above much else. Life here is dominated by school, church, and recreational activities. Residents have their choice of housing, from dying-to-be renovated Victorians to carefree condos.

Considered by residents as a true hidden gem, Broadway/Slavic Village enjoys close proximity to greenspace, including a true rails-to-trails multipurpose path, a nine-hole golf course, and views of Cleveland's tallest urban waterfall.

Central/Kinsman

Nearly 20,000 people call this neighborhood home. And that is precisely why developers are beginning to take strong notice of this emerging market. Kinsman is home to the world headquarters of the Orlando Baking Company, and new green businesses and urban farms are flocking to this centrally located neighborhood.

In the last few years alone, several hundred newly constructed single-family homes, townhomes and condominiums have been built, sold and occupied. And why not? Central/Kinsman is ideally situated between University Circle and Downtown, giving residents easy access to the two densest employment centers in the county.
