At Studio West 117, we aim to provide opportunities to LGBTQ+ businesses and entrepreneurs, trying to help remove as many obstacles as possible for folks in our community to start businesses and thrive economically. Leasing is managed in an inclusive and thoughtful manner and we aim to provide resources that go beyond the provision of space, whether that is connecting to other organizations that can provide funding or technical assistance or highlighting Studio West 117’s businesses as part of a more comprehensive marketing effort. Located in a specifically LGBTQ+ affirming neighborhood, commercial tenants can expect additional foot traffic generated by our entertainment and events, as well as widespread recognition through the connection to our neighborhood. At Studio West, you can build your own brand within a broader LGBTQ+ ecosystem that provides organizational support and helps grow and raise awareness for the community.
This popular area on the border of Lakewood and Cleveland features high traffic from public transit and major vehicular arteries as well as a walkable and bikeable neighborhood with plenty of local street level retail all along Detroit Ave. Studio West also remains committed to preserving the historical character of our commercial spaces, embracing the unique charm of these properties.
LGBTQ+ entrepreneurs can collaborate and thrive in this walkable and inclusive shopping area that the LGBTQ+ can be proud to call our own. The synergistic impact of having all members of the Studio West neighborhood located in close proximity results in the creation of an entire shopping district, where businesses can support one another and build a true sense of community.
