“Cleveland a New Brooklyn” - Fortune Magazine

The making of a creative capital.

Ohio City is a “makers” neighborhood replete with historic storefronts and one of the world’s best public markets. TWIST built positioning that aligned traditional neighborhood values with those of a new generation of artisan entrepreneur who chooses to produce and sell handmade goods. The big bang moment happened when the neighborhood first attracted business tenants that were a value match and then converted those business owners to homeowners.

Ohio City is now at 100% business occupancy.

Gritty, hard working and welcoming, here we do things the Ohio City way; this is Cleveland’s makers capital.

Celebrating 100 years of food, family and tradition as Cleveland’s Public Market in the heart of historic Ohio City.

“Ohio City is Cleveland’s only ‘complete’ historic neighborhood. TWIST turned infighting into celebration via an attraction strategy that leveraged the emerging economic trend of “artisan economies”—the work is beautiful. The results? WOW! Everyone wants to know our secret. It’s TWIST.”
