How can cities balance the interests of homed and unhomed residents?
Research question: How can cities balance the interests of homed and unhomed residents?
The Public Square you see today has gone through many, many changes since it was laid out in the original plans for the city of Cleveland in 1796, but it has always been intended to be a civic space open to all. There have been monuments, statues, arches, plans for a large city hall, and many other developments and additions to the space over the years. Its most recent renovation opened to the public on June 30th, 2016.
On three sides, it is surrounded by Cleveland's three tallest buildings. Key Tower, occupied by KeyBank, 200 Public Square, occupied by Huntington, and Terminal Tower, once the 4th tallest building in the world. Cleveland has a history of large corporations and industry, and the wealth that followed business has contributed to many of the city's public spaces and cultural institutions.
