Cleveland Flats peninsula finally coming back to life

One of the largest vacant tracts of land near Cleveland’s urban core
moved closer to development this week with City Planning Com-
mission’s approval of schematic plans for Silverhills at Thunder-
bird. The project is located on the mostly undeveloped Scranton
Peninsula across the Cuyahoga River from downtown Cleveland.
That huge peninsula, once home to steel production facilities and
lumberyards, sat mostly vacant for 40 years and is finally coming
 back to life (Dimit). CLICK IMAGES TO ENLARGE THEM

Friday was a big day for Scranton Peninsula in Cleveland’s Flats. A new brewpub opened in a repurposed industrial structure next to the Cuyahoga River. City Planning Commission gave conditional approval to plans for a new neighborhood that would add more than 300 housing units to the city’s riverfront. And the commission approved new zoning for a large area of the Flats to support additional development.
