  1. Site Work Underway for $170M TJX Project By George Nelson | June 18, 2019 LORDSTOWN, Ohio – Heavy rains late last week and over the weekend has put a damper on work at the site of TJX Companies Inc.’s $170 million distribution center in Lordstown. But work is still underway, reports Mayor Arno Hill. The village of Lordstown issued zoning permits in April to site developer Independence Excavating Inc. in Independence. The contractor is preparing the site, nearly 300 acres, for the warehouse and distribution warehouse, guard house and pump house. https://businessjournaldaily.com/site-work-underway-for-170m-tjx-project/
  2. Thanks! This has been up for a couple weeks at least but I have not had a chance to grab a photo. Northside is not a technically an area defined by the city. It is considered part of Cascade Valley. This proposed development is across the street from the newer Cascade Lofts. The developer of that is calling the area NoHo for the street it sits on, North Howard. And, as you can see, they are calling this project the NoHo Commons.
  3. You can see the folding in person. The photo is not a great representation of what the final product will be.
  4. Need to see what the numbers are that total to that $1.2 billion. The business school is $72 million. The parking deck is $23 million and is not using any state funding. So you have $100 million right there.
