In The Region:
In the aggregate, Cleveland has about a billion-and-a-half dollars in development projects underway.

Joseph Marinucci (Mar-in-uch-ee) is president of the Downtown Cleveland Alliance, and says the thinking, as well as the planning, may be new for Cleveland.
 
“It’s been a long time in downtown since we’ve had this magnitude of portfolio of projects… between the Medical Mart/convention center, the casino project, the flats East Bank project, some of the things going on at Playhouse Square. … So one of our goals is to work with the community to make sure we connect these projects in a way that maybe Cleveland historically hasn’t connected some of its major investment.”
 
Dennis Madden of Medical Mart says his project has letters of intent from about a third of the tenants it wants to have when it opens in 20-13. And he says it’s already gotten commitments for 14 to 15 medical equipment trade shows.  
Cleveland’s Medical Mart project faces competition from similar developments in Nashville and New York City.
