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!

Located just west of downtown Cleveland, Edgewater is a lakefront neighborhood with ample outdoor space, restaurants, and retail including the Clifton Boulevard Historic District. The neighborhood extends from West 117th, where Lakewood begins, to the Detroit-Shoreway neighborhood to the east. With excellent beach access at the nearby Edgewater Beach and Park, Edgewater truly is lakefront living at its best.

Edgewater is a vibrant neighborhood with a unique mixture apartment buildings, duplexes, triplexes, and individual homes. A walkable neighborhood with tree-lined streets, Edgewater is also a bike-friendly community with access to the Cleveland Lakefront Bikeway at Edgewater Park. The bikeway extends a total of 17 miles along the city's Lake Erie shoreline, between Euclid and Edgewater Park. The neighborhood is also known for its grand, stately homes with unique architectural features located on both Lake Avenue and Edgewater Drive as well as Harborview Drive. Many of these homes are located just a short walk from the water with some even having private access to Lake Erie and views of downtown Cleveland.

Edgewater is close to other popular neighborhoods including Lakewood, Ohio City, Tremont, and downtown Cleveland. With access to the Shoreway, Edgewater is only a short drive to the other surrounding eastern neighborhoods and suburbs including last week's feature, North Collinwood, just east of the city.
