NEIGHBORHOOD SPOTLIGHT: HOUGH
Perfectly situated between Downtown and University Circle, the Hough neighborhood is host to an important stretch of the Euclid Corridor HealthLine. It offers a wide range of housing, from new to historic and affordable to upscale opportunities. A redeveloped League Park, where the Cleveland Indians and Major League legends like Babe Ruth once played, is now completed and serves as an attraction to both residents and visitors. Just down the street from League Park is Chateau Hough, an urban vineyard that also includes the world’s first bio-cellar (pictured). Learn more about Hough at www.LiveCleveland.org/Hough

CITY LIFE: MEET YOUR NEIGHBORS
St. Clair Superior
David Sharkey has lived in and around Cleveland his whole life. As the President of Progressive Urban Real Estate, David loves the city and has made a career out of helping other people fall in love with its neighborhoods too. He has lived in St. Clair-Superior for over 18 years, helping develop the St. Clair-Superior Development Corporation and raising his children on the AsiaTown’s excellent culinary scene, especially Siam Café and Superior Phở. To David, St. Clair-Superior is the ideal community. He calls it an “old-time neighborhood”, where neighbors know each other and a good bite to eat is a short walk away from everything. Even better, Downtown and Progressive Field are both within easy walking distance, a trip he makes regularly for Indians’ games. He loves the community’s diversity, its architecture, and its eternally positive energy.
