Cleveland, Ohio is an amazing place to visit and experience, and the city is still thriving after years of economic stagnation.
But that’s about to change.
The city’s skyline is getting some serious attention, thanks to a $1.5 billion renovation project to improve the area around the city’s downtown.
The plan includes building new parks and parks surrounding the Cleveland Clinic, which has been in the heart of the city for decades.
Here are some of our favorite photos of the project.
