Significance: The Cleveland Arcade is a particularly noteworthy example of the skylighted arcade - a building type that is one of the most unique contributions of the nineteenth century to the urban scene. Functionally and commercially this prominent Cleveland structure is an arcade, for it provides a passageway between two large urban thoroughfares and it contains many shops and offices rented to individual companies. But its tiers of galleries and dramatic use of interior space make it architecturally more akin to the light courts of the multi-storied commercial structures which were developed before the introduction of sufficiently brilliant interior artificial lighting. In construction the Arcade is mixed in technique and materials and reflects the rapid changes in high buildings construction which occurred in the 1880's and 1890's - an era that saw the birth of the skyscraper.
