Brite Winter 2020

Progressive Urban Real Estate has been an active member of the community in the city of Cleveland since being founded in 1986. With deep roots in downtown Cleveland and the first suburbs, Progressive Urban has been an advocate of urban revitalization and contributing to the growth and development of Cleveland's urban neighborhoods. Not only do many of our realtors live where they work, our agency also supports local organizations such as the Brite Winter festival. Progressive Urban Real Estate is proud to be a bronze level sponsor of this year's Brite Winter festival; an annual outdoor music, arts, food, and beer festival hosted during one of Cleveland's coldest months.  

So how did the Brite Winter festival come to be? It all began when a couple of friends were sharing a pitcher on a patio at the end of the summer. Conversation turned to two things: what can younger people do to get more involved in the community; and what are things you've always wanted to do? We decided that Cleveland really needed to embrace winter and have fun with it. They ended up finding an enormous amount of support in the community and found that there were way too many things to show off in this town. Their first event consisted of 800 people listening to music, building snow forts, and sliding around on ski-bikes in an urban park. The second year lead to even more partnerships and fun. Since then, the event has grown to one with over 20,000 visitors, tons of community partnerships, and over 3 dozen musical acts.

The team at Brite Winter wanted to contribute to the Cleveland cultural landscape with a free/low cost, and accessible events during underserved times of the year, like winter; an event where anyone can experience our city through traditional and innovative activities. Brite Winter marries fire, participatory art, food, music, and games to build community while helping Clevelanders embrace the cold winter months.

Brite Winter embraces their core values of positivity, community, creativity, artistic excellence, and accessibility contributing to the Cleveland cultural landscape with a free/low cost, and accessible events during underserved times of the year, like winter; an event where anyone can experience our city through traditional and innovative activities. We at Progressive Urban Real Estate are proud to be a community partner of the Brite Winter organization.

The Brite Winter festival is scheduled for Saturday, February 22nd from 3p to 1a in the West Bank of the Flats and is a FREE event. For more information about the event, click here. We hope to see you there!

Also known as the Archwood-Denison neighborhood, Brooklyn Centre is located about ten minutes from downtown, accessible from Interstate 71 at the West 25th Street Exit. A historic district in the Ohio and Erie Canal National Heritage Corridor, the neighborhood is roughly bounded by 1-71, Pearl Rd. and Big Creek Valley, in Cleveland. The Upper Flats creates the eastern edge of the district while Daisy Avenue, Sackett Avenue and I-71 defines the northern edge. Big Creek Valley and Brookside Park provide the western border. The historic homes and landmarks of Brooklyn Centre are nestled along the edge of Lower Big Creek Valley, close to the Cleveland Metroparks Zoo and Brookside Reservation. The neighborhood is anchored by MetroHealth Medical Center, one of the area's leading trauma centers. 

Established in the early 1800s, the neighborhood acted as a small trading post within the area once known as the township of Brooklyn. One of the older residential communities in Cleveland, Brooklyn Centre features a variety of architectural styles including Greek Revival, Italianate, Queen Anne, Colonial Revival and Bungalow. Located just south of the Medina Freeway (also known as I-71), Archwood Avenue is a particularly good example of the type of broad streets found in this district that have large houses with spacious lots.

One of the neighborhood's hidden gems is Art House.  The organization was founded in 1999 by local artists and residents dedicated to the belief that the arts enrich lives and help create better communities. Our 3,000 square foot studio facility is housed in a 1948 domed Quonset building. Their mission is to make art accessible to Brooklyn Centre and the Greater Cleveland community by providing instruction, encouragement, and facilities. They provide high quality visual and creative arts classes for people of all ages and skill levels. The organization strives to enrich the lives of those who live in the Brooklyn Centre community, to encourage and strengthen the careers of local artists and to promote learning through the arts.

Brookside Park

Steelyard Commons

Located in the southwest corner of the neighborhood, Brookside Park was the site of many games of the Cleveland Amateur Baseball Association. The Association was formed to organize local amateur players in 1910 at a time when the professional Cleveland "Naps" were not doing so well. The stadium drew 6,000 to 8,000 fans regularly and up to 100,000 for special events. The stadium was natural in that the fans would sit on the hillside to watch the games. The stadium can still be seen today at the foot of Fulton Road hill, at the corner of Fulton Road and Denison Avenue.

In January 2007, the Steelyard Commons opened as the first shopping center to be built within the city of Cleveland in several decades. The site, which once housed the LTV Steel finishing mill, combines retail, restaurants, and recreation facilities. The design pays homage to the site's industrial background and makes use of reclaimed steel framing as well as a variety of salvaged artifacts. The shopping center is located

Old Brooklyn was organized in 1818 with roots in the original Brooklyn Township. Annexation to the City of Cleveland occurred in stages, beginning in 1905 and continuing through 1927. Greenhouse gardening began on Schaaf Road in 1887 and in the mid 20th-century gave the area the title of "Greenhouse Capital of the United States".

Recently, the Old Brooklyn neighborhood has been a popular location for redevelopment and revitalization. Established in 1975, the mission of Old Brooklyn Community Development Corporation is to develop and revitalize the community by uniting and empowering residents, business leaders, and government around plans and initiatives and achieve social, economic & civic improvements. The organization was created to serve neighborhood locals, provide local news, and educated community members on how to get involved. 

Located just a few miles from downtown Cleveland, the Old Brooklyn neighborhood is a vibrant community just south of the city. The Old Brooklyn neighborhood features popular clothing stores, brunch spots, restaurants, coffee shops, and low-key neighborhood bars. Old Brooklyn is Cleveland's accessible, family-friendly neighborhood where business and people come to grow.

Old Brooklyn is also home to the Cleveland Metroparks Zoo. Connected to the zoo is the Brookside Reservation with nature trails through wild and open parkland.  The Reservation was one of the City of Cleveland's oldest neighborhood parks before its acquisition by Cleveland Metroparks in 1993. The land was purchased in 1894 and has been a center for recreation since the early 1900s. Still a recreation hub, the area now boasts baseball and soccer/football fields. The 132-acre reservation serves as a refuge for diverse wildlife in an urban setting. It is also an attractive spot for area picnickers and a resting site for walkers, cyclists and others who use the All Purpose Trail. The reservation also features mitigated wetlands, mature forests, and managed meadows, which provide diverse habitats for urban wildlife viewing.
