If people in Cleveland, would start looking to get businesses to move to Cleveland - things would begin to turn around. Without jobs - Cleveland will end up like Detroit.

This is just more bad news from Cleveland. I fear that Pittsburgh will continue to dominate Cleveland, this just gets worse. Pittsburgh is booming, while Cleveland continues to hault construction or drop projects all together. This project is currently haulted, but in typical Cleveland fashion, it will get canceled and not go through.
