What’s with the temporary exhibits? Why can’t we get some of these awesome Pop-Up City events to stay put?
- “We can, it just takes a long time. Development in Cleveland is a slow process, especially with the economy being the way that it is. So temporary uses aren’t intended to replace permanent development, but to complement it. We’ve got this giant amount of vacant property—about 3,300 acres of vacant sites and probably 15,000 vacant buildings, maybe more than that. So if there are ways that we can activate these dead zones in the city for a little while and move things around, that’s what we’re about.”
