Cuyahoga County Council has introduced talk of ditching its digs at the corner of Lakeside and Ontario.
At a work session last week, members said they might tap into Med Mart and convention center backup funds to enhance the property’s future value.
The plan would make it easier for a developer to knock down the current administration building and invest in, say, a hotel connected to the convention center across the street. Thus far, no such developers have been identified.
Several council members believe the site of the current administration building would be better suited to convention center expansion than county business. “Common sense tells you that five years from now, this building won’t be here,” says councilman Dan Brady.
