Construction on the Cleveland Medical Mart and Convention Center began in January of 2011. The project, scheduled to open in 2013, is located in downtown Cleveland near St. Clair Avenue, Ontario Street, and Lake Erie. When completed, the four-story, 235,000-square foot Medical Mart will showcase the most recent technology available in today's healthcare market and solidify Cleveland's place as a leader in health care.
