Will Friedman, LEEDCo board member and president of the Port of Cleveland, expressed his disappointment at the project’s pause in a statement. In addition, he pointed out that the project permits remain valid and he hopes that it will resume its course in the future.

This pause is necessitated by a confluence of adverse circumstances and numerous delays resulting in a financial climate in which the commercial viability of the project is in doubt ,” he said.

Friedman indicated that LEEDCo’s board of directors is receptive to the idea of ​​other developers or owners taking responsibility for the project. As a result of the pause, a $50 million grant for energy efficiency and renewable energy from the U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) Office will be moved as LEEDCo is unable to meet established development goals. .
