The New Cleveland

One cannot help but be captivated by the ongoing construction projects in Cleveland. The city is in the midst of a transformation, with new developments and renovations shaping its future. Propped Productions has had the privilege of photographing these changes from above, giving us a unique vantage point to witness Cleveland’s evolution.

The Flats East Bank, for example, has undergone a stunning transformation in recent years. What was once an industrial area has now become a thriving hub of activity, boasting luxury apartments, dining options, and green spaces along the riverfront. From our drone, we’ve seen the Flats come alive, with people enjoying the scenic river views and vibrant atmosphere.




Lakefront and Beyond

The shores of Lake Erie are another highlight of our nighttime adventures. Cleveland’s lakefront is a sight to behold after dark, with the city’s skyline extending to the water’s edge. The Rock and Roll Hall of Fame, a Cleveland icon, stands prominently, illuminated against the dark waters of the lake.
