The Cleveland Cavaliers are aiming for another playoff run in the upcoming 2023-2024 season. There have been plenty of headlines with the Cavs this offseason, but all eyes are focused on what lies ahead. Now, the Cavs announced plans to build a must-see state-of-the-art training facility on the riverfront, per the team’s official statement:
‘Today, the Cleveland Cavaliers and the Cleveland Clinic, a top-ranked medical center, partnering with Bedrock real estate, unveiled conceptual plans for the Cleveland Clinic Global Peak Performance Center – a first-of-its-kind sports performance center and training facility. Proposed plans include the development of an interdisciplinary training center, which would be located on the Cuyahoga Riverfront in downtown Cleveland. The Center would be the only Cleveland Clinic-backed professional facility to be open to the public. ‘
The facility will be designed by Populous and will sit on the Cuyahoga River in downtown Cleveland. The partnership involves both Cleveland Clinic and Bedrock, which is owned by Dan Gilbert, who issued a statement after the news came, per Drew Scofield of ABC News 5 Cleveland:
“With today’s announcement, we are taking the first step in realizing that vision by joining forces with Cleveland Clinic to design an innovative Cleveland Clinic Global Peak Performance Center right in Downtown Cleveland. This center will not only serve our team on and off the court, but it will create an opportunity for the everyday athlete to receive state-of-the-art care in Northeast Ohio.”
The blueprint for the new facility looks stunning, and it will be quite a sight to see along the river.
