This thesis explores the effects that new sports facilities in a downtown area have on the surrounding city, using Cleveland's Gateway complex as a case study. In this study a total of six people from the area were interviewed on the possible impacts that the complex had on the community. Results of the study were mixed, and no definite conclusions could be drawn. However, the study did provide excellent insight into the views that people had of the project. More research is suggested, especially with a focus on possible ways of making the research more reliable.
