  4. You called Barberton and Kenmore "...one of the most depressed corners of the metropolitan area..." They are actually quite the opposite of the progress that has / has not happened in Greater Akron.
  5. Sounds like you haven't been following any of the work in Kenmore and Barberton that's been done the past couple of years.

  9. July 07, 2019 04:00 AM updated 5 hours ago Neighborhood Watch: University Park is finding its identity Dan Shingler Development underway That may be wishful thinking, for now, but there is some development taking place near campus. The Martin University Center, a 40,000-square-foot former private club that opened in 1918 and has been vacant since 2013, is being redeveloped into a 73-room boutique hotel by an investor group led by Tom Chema, who is probably best known for spearheading the development of sports venues in downtown Cleveland. "We expect to spend something north of $14 million in hard dollars on the project. That does not include the acquisition, so we'll invest a total of about $19 million," he said. Chema added he expects to complete financing and begin construction in October, with hopes of opening by the end of 2020. https://www.crainscleveland.com/akron-news/neighborhood-watch-university-park-finding-its-identity

  11. Looking at the site plan, there are apartment buildings on the back of the site. How would one access those?
  12. 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.

  13. 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.
