Cleveland Development Could Connect Food Wholesalers With Public

A proposed development on a vacant lot in ailing Cleveland could connect locals with a little-known asset of their community - a cluster of food wholesalers.

While produce is flowing in and out of the Cleveland neighborhood around East 55th Street and Woodland Avenue, little of it is feeding the community. Maingate Market Place could open up that access.

Steven Litt writes that the project "is very much back-to-the-future. In the 1940s, before explosive growth in the city's suburbs, East 55th and Woodland was a dense, vibrant retail district."

The idea is currently just on the drawing board while the non-profit Maingate Business Development Corp seeks a developer.
