The Cleveland Cavaliers, Cleveland Clinic and Bedrock Real Estate revealed the first official renderings of the Cleveland Clinic Global Peak Performance Center on March 26. Situated on the Cuyahoga River in downtown Cleveland, the center will focus on enhancing athletes' overall performance and serve as the Cleveland Cavaliers' new home. The more than 210,000-sq.-ft.-facility is slated to be one of the world's largest training facilities.

Designed by architectural firm Populous, the Cleveland Clinic Global Peak Performance Center will be the first vertical development of Bedrock's pioneering Cuyahoga Riverfront master plan, a $3.5 billion vision for the city of Cleveland that will advance 35 acres of the riverfront, prioritizing accessibility and sustainability. This latest evolution in the partnership between the Cavaliers and the Cleveland Clinic will create a lasting community asset that invites elite and everyday athletes from around the world to Cleveland. It also aims to position the city as a global sports science and wellness destination.

"This project is the first step in creating a more vibrant and growth-oriented neighborhood, transforming the look and feel of downtown," said Dan Gilbert, Cleveland Cavaliers chairman and Bedrock founder and chairman. "We are grateful to our partners at the city of Cleveland and the Cleveland Clinic for their support with this very important and exciting project that will ignite our new vision for the riverfront."

The Cleveland Clinic Global Peak Performance Center is a substantial investment in the long-term sustainability and success of the Cavaliers franchise. When completed, the center will bring together a unique hub of resources to help extend the lifespan of players' careers and help athletes attain their highest potential.

"The vision and functionality of this facility will be a generational game changer for the Cleveland Cavaliers. The overall investment in this project speaks to how much the franchise prioritizes the well-being of our players, while also delivering exceptional resources to enhance their skills to an elite level," said Koby Altman, Cavaliers president of basketball operations. "We have a championship-caliber culture, and this is another example of that commitment to our players, coaches and support staff to continue elevating the organization into the league's best. The community engagement with the Cleveland Clinic, coupled with the downtown location, will provide another impactful destination offering to northeast Ohio."

The Cleveland Clinic Global Peak Performance Center will offer comprehensive care for the public, including athletes of all sports and levels, with access to testing and high-tech training equipment and devices, along with expert professionals from a variety of specialties, including orthopedic surgery, sports medicine, cardiology, pulmonology, exercise physiology, neurology, nutrition, psychology and genetics. Using big data repositories acquired through key partnerships and The Cleveland Clinic's global footprint, the center will leverage cutting-edge artificial intelligence technology to gain novel insights about human performance to maximize every athlete's potential and give them a physical and mental competitive edge. The performance center also will translate these unique insights to populations beyond athletes, including medical and healthcare patients, first responders and the military.

"This project will not only enhance the landscape of Cleveland but also will provide new approaches and applications to improve the health of our community through multidisciplinary care for patients of all athletic abilities," said Tom Mihaljevic, CEO and president, and Morton L. Mandel, CEO chair, Cleveland Clinic. "The Global Peak Performance Center exemplifies the impact we can have when like-minded organizations come together. We are proud to be working with Bedrock Real Estate and continuing to grow our relationship with the Cleveland Cavaliers."

Since 1993, the Cleveland Clinic has served as the Cavaliers' official healthcare provider, offering healthcare and medical services to Cavaliers' players, families, employees and fans. More than 30 years later, the Cleveland Clinic Global Peak Performance Center represents the most ambitious project these two organizations have ever pursued together.

The Cleveland Clinic Global Peak Performance Center's architectural design was led by the global design firm Populous Studio in collaboration with the Cavaliers and Bedrock. The design was inspired by three principles:

  • Embrace the River — the center takes inspiration from the colors and curvature of the Cuyahoga River and the surrounding valley, creating core-to-shore connectivity that adds new dimension to the coastline. The center also will include a public kayak launch point that will give the public the opportunity to enjoy the waterfront for the first time in nearly a century.
  • Create a Local Icon — just blocks from the Gateway Sports Complex and Rocket Mortgage FieldHouse, the Cleveland Clinic Global Peak Performance Center will bring renewed energy and beauty to downtown Cleveland and join the FieldHouse as a vital part of the city's vision of being an 18-hour, 15-minute neighborhood to live, work, play and stay.
  • Elevate Athlete's Experience — Through a holistic and revolutionary approach to training, treatment, nutrition and recovery from The Clinic's professional medical specialists, it will be the only Cleveland Clinic-backed professional facility to be open to the public. It also will provide a platform for the Cavs Academy program, which serves more than 50,000 youth athletes across northeast Ohio every year.

Pending approval, groundbreaking on the Cleveland Clinic Global Peak Performance Center is anticipated before the end of 2024.
