U.S. Bank Plaza

U.S. Bank Plaza, located in the area bordered by Euclid Ave., E. 14th Street and Huron Road, is considered Playhouse Square’s unofficial 10th stage. It was completed in 1996 as a Cleveland Bicentennial Legacy Project.  The Plaza is a tree-lined city haven featuring ample seating and used year-round for entertainment and activities.  Both residents of the Theater District and community visitors alike enjoy a variety of outdoor concerts,  a farmers’ market and classes at the Plaza, and find its peaceful greenspace an ideal place to bring their lunch and relax. In 2014 the crossroads of the Plaza became home to the world’s largest outdoor chandelier, the GE Chandelier.
