The Historic Warehouse District Development Corporation (HWDDC) was formed in 1980 to coordinate and stimulate redevelopment and create a unique, mixed-use neighborhood for downtown Cleveland. The nonprofit local development corporation was formed from two groups: downtown business interests and architects who believed in the economics of historic preservation and the people who had moved into one of the under-utilized warehouses, creating their own loft living spaces. This newly formed "neighborhood organization", with the help of the Cleveland Landmarks Commission, had the Warehouse District declared a Cleveland Landmark District in 1982.
