CLEVELAND – Although it’s one of Cleveland’s busiest intersections, the East 55th and St. Clair area was downtrodden with vacant storefronts and vacant buildings for years.
Now, new development is breathing new life into this area development plan, dubbed Hub 55, giving people a reason to stop and look around.
The neighborhood is carving a niche.
“Rick Semersky, who is the owner of Hub 55, he has roots in the neighborhood and basically made it his goal to revitalize this area, and we’re starting it with food,” said Hub 55 General Manager Eric Anderson.
Anderson is also General Manager of the neighborhood mainstay Sterle’s Country Place.
The owner of Sterle’s opened Cafe 55, grab and go prepared foods for those in a rush.
