Timken Co’s new, open headquarters a bump up

By Jim Mackinnon
Beacon Journal business writer
Published: November 10, 2014 - 10:31 PM

JACKSON TWP.: Timken Co.’s Chief Executive Officer, Richard Kyle, was involved in a “casual collision” early Monday inside the bearing company’s recently finished headquarters.

It was all good. There were no injuries, just an exchange of pleasantries.

Actually, so-called casual collisions — basically, informal and unexpected encounters — are an intentional consequence of the building’s design.

I am working in Canton this week and we just got lunch at Deli Ohio. What an awesome place! There actually was what appeared to be a high school class on a field trip eating while I was, and the owner of the place was speaking to them, so I got to learn all about their history and future plans. Nearly everything is local, and they are very focused on being involved with revitalization of downtown Canton. He also said that next summer, they are going to jackhammer a huge parking lot behind their building and create a urban garden/farm/park with public spaces to try to add some green space to the overly-concrete area. Just wanted to give them a shout out/recommendation. The pic I've attached is just from google streetview, but it shows the lot that will be converted, including cool "rust belt" mural.

Deli Ohio is wonderful. I usually try to stop in there at least a few times a month. :-D Did not know anything about the back lot conversion to a garden, but I'm glad to see it happening. It's definitely inspiring to see people taking an active interest in Downtown Canton.

It would definitely benefit from having more green space and trees in place of some of the crumbling asphalt and concrete lots.

Agreed, Deli Ohio is great.  We just had my sisters baby shower there last Sunday.  I think everyone was really happy with it.  The mural (which is my favorite in town) was done by Steve Ehret.  He is working on one in the former mother goosland now.  http://www.steveehret.com/

Tax breaks weighed for Bliss Tower in Canton
Canton City Council on Monday discussed a potential real estate tax break for developer Steve Coon so he can turn Bliss Tower into luxury apartments.

CANTON
The developer who’s seeking a tax break for a $12.5 million downtown renovation heard more kudos than questions from elected officials Monday.

Canton City Council discussed a potential tax abatement for Steve Coon so he can turn Bliss Tower, at 217 Second St. NW, into luxury apartments. Most of the conversation centered on whether Coon will use local labor on the project and on his success with the Historic Onesto Lofts.

“We really need to invest in him so he can invest in downtown,” Councilman Thomas West, D-2, said.

I wonder what's under the glass and metal. It would be great to see them go after historic preservation credits and restore the original facade.

PLAIN TWP.

    If you’ve missed shopping at a local Stein Mart store, you’ll be happy to know the retailer has plans to return to Stark County next year.

    It’s one of four tenants lined up for the Venue at Belden, under reconstruction on the northeast corner of Everhard Road and Whipple Avenue NW. The property is co-owned by DeVille Development and Rodney Napier, who has been using it as home to several businesses.

    JACKSON TWP. Belden Village Mall will soon have a new look and new restaurants.

    • Burntwood Tavern, a Chagrin-Falls based eatery, will open in early 2017 in the former Max & Erma's location. The upscale restaurant chain has seven locations in Northeast Ohio.

Are the Onesto lofts worth $11 million or just $1 million?
By Alison Matas Repository staff writer
Posted Sep 18, 2016 at 6:06 AM

CANTON The Historic Onesto Lofts reopened its doors nearly two years ago and hosted an event in the grand ballroom, giving the public a first glimpse at a multimillion restoration effort that spanned a decade.

A month later, a private appraiser hired by the city of Canton walked through the 13-story building and decided its new market value was close to $11 million. The renovation was almost finished, he wrote in his appraisal, and residents would begin arriving in early 2015.

Fat Head's Brewery eyes Canton and Charlotte, N.C., for expansion
By Rick Armon Published: October 27, 2016

 The Ohio-based brewery is eyeing a brewpub at 3885-3893 Everhard Road in a Plain Township plaza that also has an Earth Fare and is located just down the street from the Westfield Belden Village mall.

At 10,000 square feet, the brewpub would be slightly smaller than the Fat Head’s location in North Olmsted but would feature an outdoor patio. Fat Head’s also operates a brewpub in Portland, Ore., a production brewery in Middleburg Heights and a restaurant in Pittsburgh.

Plant expansion turns Canton into a hub for Ball Corp.
October 22, 2016 Updated 18 hours ago
By Dan Shingler

Canton is fully living up to its name, thanks to Colorado-based Ball Corp.

Ball — known to cooks everywhere for its home-canning supplies and to food and consumer-product makers as a major packaging company — is doubling the size of its plant on Warner Road in Canton and more than quadrupling its staff to over 100.

Market Square plans taken to new heights
The new plans for the square - including the sculpture, a covered stage, a video screen, restaurant and restrooms - would cost about $9.4 million.
By Kelly Byer 
Repository staff writer

CANTON Plans to transform Market Square into an "iconic" attraction have grown considerably - along with the price tag.

Canton City Council were presented Monday with revamped designs from architects for the one-acre green space in the downtown area. To see designs, click here.

http://www.cantonrep.com/news/20170109/market-square-plans-taken-to-new-heights


WOW, this project went from about $1mil. to $9mil. +
Check out the images from the link in the article. Pretty ugly, IMO.

Ugh. Not everything needs to be football themed - although I found the football themed power poles to be cute.

But... this is staritecture at its worst. While it is iconic and unique, it doesn't seem to serve the public.

The architects claims the interior will be hollow so people will climb a ladder to the top? I'm sure the city will jump right in on the liability insurance for that one. And who will supervise the patrons that will climb this hollow football? Will there be an observation deck at the top? And how many will do this? It's not accessible to most of the public, and certainly not to the disabled, and if the Purple People Bridge Climb is any indication, the vast majority will simply not take up the offer. It's no higher than other nearby buildings and offers no unique viewpoints.

And it will be closed in windy weather? And in the winter? You've eliminated about a third of the year.

An integrated landscape with a large gazebo, splash pad, fountains, playground and countless other ideas, replicated in other cities to great success, could work better.

It has more of a "Huh?" effect on me. So they are going to build a 160ft shower in the grassy square. Are people in Canton trying to get wet before they go into a restaurant? Just because it will look pretty for stupid promotional flyers of Canton doesn't mean it should be moved forward. i would suggest they have a firehose shoot straight up on the square and see if that is good enough or see how long that amuses people. That would save $9 million. You're welcome, Canton.

Right, and they had exactly that with the first design that was only $1mil. I think it's more functional as well.

Hercules development could give Canton more strength
 Posted Mar 19, 2017 at 12:30 PM
By Charita Goshay

Because Hercules is listed on the National Register of Historic Places, it was eligible for Federal Historic Preservation Tax Incentive program, which provides a 20-percent credit for restoring buildings that meet the criteria. The Hercules site has been occupied since the 1870s. One of its earliest occupants was Cornelius Aultman's "thresher" company, Timken said. Current buildings range from the 1900s to the 1940s. The last occupant was Hercules Engines, which opened in 1915 and closed in 1999.
