MidTown Cleveland Inc. will host a 45 minute panel discussion on the HTC Innovation District & Placemaking, with MidTown Cleveland Executive Director Jeffery Epstein and Baiju R. Shah, CEO of BioMotiv, followed by a 15 minute q&a. Strengthening the connection between people and places, placemaking is a collaborative process that pays particular attention to the physical, cultural, and social identities that define a place to support its ongoing evolution.

The HTC is a 1,600 acre area spanning the heart of Cleveland’s east side, connecting Cleveland’s vibrant Downtown to its cultural hub of University Circle. The opportunities for business attraction to Cleveland by partnering with the area’s leading health & tech institutions are tremendous and have resulted in over 1,800 new jobs, 500,000 square feet of new or renovated office and lab space, and over $4 billion of investment since 2008. 

Building on the success of the HTC, we’re creating a new center for Cleveland’s innovation economy adjacent to the future Cleveland Foundation HQ on Euclid Avenue & East 66th Street, in a partnership with Wexford Science and Technology as the master developer for this new innovation community in MidTown.
