This study outlines the economic and fiscal impacts of the redevelopment of the Variety Village District, comprised of the Variety Theatre Complex, a new public parking lot, and 40,000 square feet of new retail along Lorain Avenue. In addition, as shown in the full report, a portion of the location decision for at least three local industries which are moving to, or expanding their enterprise in, the immediate Westown neighborhood, can be attributed to the catalytic effect of the Variety Village District redevelopment.
