Hopkins is Ohio’s largest and busiest airport, and serves as the hub of a dense regional transportation and business ecosystem that connects Northeast Ohio to the global economy. An innovator since it was established as the country’s first municipally owned airport nearly a century ago, Hopkins facilitates approximately 100,000 flights each year, and has recently undergone a significant enhancement of its passenger facilities.

NASA Glenn has a sparkling history as a federal research lab, and now leverages its considerable resources to help foster innovation in the wider economy. Drawing on its deep technical expertise, unique testing facilities and R&D capabilities, the center engages in ambitious public-private partnerships that create new technologies and help stimulate new jobs. The center has core competencies in:

  • Materials and structures for extreme environments
  • Power, energy storage and conversion
  • Physical sciences and biomedical technologies in space
  • Air-breathing propulsion
  • Communications technology and development
  • In-space propulsion and cryogenic fluids management

The city is renewing itself as an appealing place for business location, with plans to redevelop a former Ford plant into an advanced manufacturing center.

It is also planning to better integrate with the nearby Metroparks.

This city is brimming with cultural attractions that make it a great place in which to live and work. They include the Cleveland Orchestra, the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame and Museum and Playhouse Square, the nation’s second-largest theater complex.

The 267-acre development is geared toward tenants in the industrial, retail, office, R&D and distribution sectors.

Cuyahoga County

Cuyahoga County is home to 1.2 million people and is comprised of 59 unique and distinctive communities, with Cleveland as its county seat. The County is considered to be the economic nucleus of Northeast Ohio.
