Downtown Cleveland Mall Will Most Likely Host Med Mart/Convention Center The $425 million medical mart/convention center project was first publicly announced over three years ago. Where, exactly, to put it though has been a tough decision. Early Thursday evening, after several hours of closed door talks, Cuyahoga County Commissioners announced their decision: Cleveland's downtown mall, including the area now occupied by the current Convention Center. Monday morning, we'll talk about that decision with the people who helped make it and find out what's next for the med mart plan.
