I liked the idea of having something close to work – not having a long drive to work and cultural activities. I’m close to the museums and sports events. I just bought Browns season tickets.
It’s a great place to live. There are a lot of professionals in my neighborhood. It’s a central location. I can get to a grocery store easily. I’m close to downtown – and the east or west side. It’s an ideal location.
University Circle has so much to offer. When I walk to work, I look around at the beautiful historic buildings and it reminds me of Europe. When I need a loaf of bread, I can get fresh baked bread right in the neighborhood, rather than getting in my car for a loaf from the grocery store.
It’s always been one of Cleveland’s treasures. I don’t think you can go anywhere in the country and have so many wonderful institutions in one area.
To be three minutes from work is amazing. It’s especially beneficial when I have to work late. I feel safe getting home.
I live 2.9 miles from work. I like to say I roll out of bed and into work. I’ve ridden my bike to work and I could walk to work. It’s convenient and it saves on gas, too.
It’s a good opportunity for employees. Without this help, we wouldn’t have considered buying a house.
The program is fabulous. I’m so glad it was available to us. We did more on the outside of our home than we would have if not for the loan. The difference between when we bought the home and now – the value’s increased 90% due in large part to the program.
Neighbors have noticed a difference in my home since the improvements. It makes my home stand out, even though it sits way back from the road. That’s been nice.
The growth and renewal that are happening with many of the institutions and their building campaigns is extending into the neighborhoods. It’s fantastic. I hope we have more people spending time in the neighborhood and living in the area so the neighborhood will be sustained. That will improve the neighborhoods. It increases the value of your home and the neighborhood, too.
