The retail hub of Detroit–Shoreway is Gordon Square, a series of retail buildings on the four corners of Detroit Avenue and West 65th Street. Named for W.J. Gordon, considered a "city father", Gordon Square is currently the central focus of efforts to remake Detroit–Shoreway into a cultural and artistic hub for the west side, including the renovation and re-opening of the Capitol Theatre, a new building for the Near West Theatre, and renovations to the Cleveland Public Theater complex, as well as a complete rebuild of the Detroit Avenue streetscape from West 58th to West 73rd streets, including burying of utility lines. Additional plans include rebuilding the Lorain Avenue Streetscape within the Lorain Avenue Antiques District, from West 52nd to West 82nd. oWOW Radio is located at the 78th Street Studios in Gordon Square.
Detroit–Shoreway is serviced by various bus routes, and includes its own rapid transit station, West 65th–Lorain. The Greater Cleveland Regional Transit Authority, in conjunction with the City of Cleveland and the Cleveland EcoVillage, is working on plans for transit-oriented development in the area around the station, and Detroit–Shoreway is additionally the site of a brownfield redevelopment of an old Eveready Battery Plant, known as Battery Park. The city is working with the Ohio Department of Transportation on plans to rebuild the limited access West Shoreway (SR-2) as a low-speed, 35 mph boulevard, reconnecting the long-split neighborhood with access to the lake.
