Burn...

The district investment has seen $100 million+ in the past 2-3 years within a 3 block area. This piece the OP posted about is the externel beautification to the square itself.

Take a visit to Playhouse Square and tell me if you still consider it subpar.

I am so excited about the improvements. I'll be in Cleveland next Friday for the lighting ceremony. It should be a fun time.

LMAO! Cleveland (all three Big C's in Ohio actually) has been kicking A$$ and making a huge comeback right now. You strike me as someone who needs to be told what to like. You're missing out on the party.

It opened last night. The lighting ceremony was amazing, with performances from Hot Chelle Rae, Dee Roscioli--the person who plays Elphaba in Wicked, the famous Shaw High School marching band, and others followed by an incredible fireworks show. It's officially the world's largest outdoor chandelier. Way to go Cleveland! $16 million well spent.

Cleverfield, did you go last night? I was present for this absolutely awe inspiring and unforgettable event ... It was so completely "off the charts" with the music, the tap dancers, the flappers ... the fireworks, speeches and pyrotechnics displays, I was overcome with raw emotion ... Tears of joy and PRIDE streamed down my face! I will never forget last night's BIG EVENT for as long as I live ... Oh, the chandelier has exceeded even my loftiest of expectations, too!

I did go last night, and it was spectacular, aside from the part where I was literally sandwhiched between 8 people

Very impressive

I've always liked the so- called rust belt cities and 'the Cleve ' is getting back to being oiled and shiny like the tin man in the wizard of oz !!

I hear there's lots of artists moving in - be careful , you guys might be turning into little N.Y.
