The Avenue at Tower City Center

Opened in 1990 by Forest City Enterprises, which acquired the Terminal Tower and Terminal complex in the 1980s, The Avenue at Tower City Center was originally an upscale multilevel shopping mall intended to add to downtown Cleveland's revitalization. In its early days, the mall, like the rail terminal sixty years before, was a novelty and a point of tremendous civic pride. Unfortunately, over the next three decades the mall lost most of its tenants, mirroring similar difficulties faced by downtown malls in other cities. In 2016, Forest City sold the mall portion of Tower City Center to Bedrock Detroit.
