Cleveland Turns Uptown Into New Downtown


This comment is very interesting:


<< <i>“There are 5,000 more jobs here than in 2005,” said Chris Ronayne, an urban planner who is president of University Circle Inc., a nonprofit community service organization that has helped manage the area’s development. “About 50,000 people work here. The number of residents grew 11 percent since 2000. And there are 10,000 people who live here now.” >>



Emery Mae Holden's (Norweb) grandfather Liberty Holden was probably the most important person in selling and gifting land in 1881-1882 to Western Reserve University (Adelbert College) in University Circle, Cleveland, Ohio which allowed the University to move from Hudson, Ohio to Cleveland, Ohio in 1882-1883.


The Holden Farm was purchased, providing 46 acres of land on which the new University Circle campuses of Case School of Applied Science and Western Reserve University were built.

The University is now known as Case Western Reserve University or simply Case. Both Cardinal, a poster here and myself are graduates of Case.

    No....that is the School of Management that is a really modernistic design... no it is not falling over.
    i graduated from Case Western Reserve School of Management with an MBA back in 1977.

    Interesting architecture....Imagine, if you can, how such a building would have been received in the late 1800's....If it could have been constructed.... :o:D Cheers, RickO

    Oreville, I ran an NCAA National Cross Country Meet at Case Western in November 1977. We had six inches of snow the night before the race. The campus was very pretty as I remember.
