Making downtown Canton ‘an extension’ of Hall of Fame Village
By Alison Matas
Posted Mar 21, 2017 at 9:45 AM Updated Mar 21, 2017 at 9:54 AM

CANTON You can't see downtown Canton from the Pro Football Hall of Fame campus.

So city leaders are brainstorming ways to encourage out-of-town visitors to make the three-mile trek from Johnson Controls Hall of Fame Village to the city center.

"We feel it's really important to do what we can to not only connect with the Hall of Fame Village, but in time, hopefully, we can make (downtown) feel like an extension of the Village," said Mike King, who chairs the Downtown Canton Special Improvement District. The district has a special "connectivity" subcommittee dedicated to brainstorming ways to link the locations.

The proposed Village consists of 107 acres roughly bordered by Fulton Road NW to the north, Helen Place NW to the south, Interstate 77 to the east, and the avenues of Clarendon, Clearview and Blake NW to the west.

The estimated $600 million development includes a renovated stadium, youth sports complex, a hotel, specialized centers and other mixed use development. Most components have an estimated completion date by 2019, with others under construction until 2020.

Too bad they took down the hotel cam. I enjoyed checking in when they were building the stadium.

Any word on why construction stopped and when things will pick up again?

You can be all but positive construction has not stopped. They have serious deadlines to meet for each phase. Currently it's the hotel.


Looks like a new rendering with a huge hulking "snake" along the highway.

I drove by on Tuesday (northbound 77).  Is most of the construction happening away from the freeway at this point?  I noticed the new stadium more than anything, but didn't want to keep my eyes off the road for too long.  Is that where the hotel and the HOF Village will be located?

^ Correct, the only thing happening construction-wise near the interstate is finishing the fill-in of the end zone of the stadium. The other construction currently underway is up on the hill and somewhat diagonal form the current hall (where the hotel is in the illustration). It can be seen from the interstate but is away from it.
