The empty storefronts that run along lower Euclid Avenue in Cleveland stand in contrast to the pedestrian bustle that kept cash registers ringing up and down the street forty years ago. In more recent times, the major activity in these buildings is taking place above street level as dozens of former offices are being turned into living spaces. As part of Making Change: Building the Region's Future, ideastream's David C. Barnett reports that a similar transformation is taking place in other pockets around the city as developers place their bets on suburbanites who see downtown as a place to call home.
