A Cleveland Community with a Vision

Detroit Shoreway is a vibrant mixed-use community and one of the fastest growing neighborhoods in Cleveland. The neighborhood experienced a period of decline beginning in the late 1970s, but has since been transformed thanks to strategic investment by neighborhood stakeholders.

Working with the Detroit Shoreway Community Development Organization (DSCDO) and other nearby partner organizations, Enterprise Community Loan Fund, Inc. (Enterprise) concentrated its affordable housing investments in Detroit Shoreway along Detroit Avenue – the main thoroughfare for Cleveland’s Near West Side. Enterprise also made strategic investments in the creation of the Gordon Square Arts District (GSAD), providing the critical early stage capital needed to move the economically catalytic effort forward.
