Big commerce park planned for Slavic Village

A large warehousing, distribution and logistics development called
Commerce Park 77 is planned for Cleveland’s Slavic Village neigh-
borhood. It could add hundreds of jobs and hundreds of thousands
of square feet of new warehousing space on the east side Interstate
77 that’s accessible to labor including from the Broadway Avenue
transit corridor. This image is an example of the type of large-
scale warehouse structures planned for the site (ULI).

Due in part to the explosive growth in e-commerce, developers can’t build warehousing, distribution and logistics centers in Northeast Ohio fast enough to meet demand. The challenge for shippers, investors and community development officials is to find sites big enough and close enough to existing transportation routes and customer markets, as well as to an existing workforce.
