MidTown

This two-square mile tract between downtown and University Circle is fast becoming one of the hottest regions for economic development. Indeed, it was recently designated by the State of Ohio as an official Hub of Innovation and Opportunity. Dubbed the Cleveland Health-Tech Corridor, the district is home to numerous biomedical and high-tech companies. But many more are on the way thanks to a collaborative effort between public and private organizations like the City of Cleveland, Team NEO, Cleveland Foundation and the Greater Cleveland Partnership. Together, these partners are working to remake MidTown into a global leader for health and medical innovation.
