CLEVELAND HEIGHTS, OH, October 22, 2020 – Cleveland Heights continues to move forward with new, transformative redevelopment projects.  As a desirable, inner-ring suburb, Cleveland Heights is a prime location for development. The City is committed to enhancing its economic growth by attracting new residents and businesses.

On Monday, October 19, Cleveland Heights City Council authorized the release of a Request for Qualifications and Preliminary Development Proposals (RFQ/RFP) for the redevelopment of the City-owned Cedar-Lee-Meadowbrook (CLM) site, located in the vibrant Cedar Lee business district.  

This action comes on the heels of the City’s release earlier this month of an RFQ/RFP for Phase I of the City’s Neighborhood Redevelopment Program (NRP), providing up to 42 infill housing sites in the City, as well as the start of construction this past May of the highly anticipated Top of the Hill mixed-use development atop Cedar Hill.

The Cedar-Lee-Meadowbrook site is located on land consisting of surface and covered parking areas and vacant land, situated in the heart of, and within easy walking distance to, businesses in one of the City’s most popular and vibrant commercial districts, including the renowned Cedar Lee Theatre, which is adjacent to the CLM development site, Dobama Theater, and the City’s own cultural gem, Cain Park. 

Cleveland Heights seeks to partner with a qualified developer or development team to create a dense, vibrant, pedestrian-friendly and unique potentially mixed-use development that leverages the placemaking opportunities of the site and the Cedar Lee District.
