The redevelopment of the privately-owned Severance Town Center as a mixed-use and walkable area consistent with the character of Cleveland Heights is a priority goal for the City. As the largest business district in Cleveland Heights, Severance Town Center’s redevelopment could provide significant amenities and opportunities. In 2017, the City worked with the National Resource Network and consulting firm HR&A to develop a feasibility study for redevelopment of the Center. The City has reached out to and is engaging with the property owners, and we look forward to a collaborative plan for redeveloping this important site.
