Published: December 20, 2015 - 10:06 PM

A building that started as a Studebaker car dealership in 1928, but in recent years has been the target of graffiti, has come down near downtown Akron.

The vacant building and lot at the corner of West Market and West streets has been owned for many years by the St. Vincent-St. Mary High School foundation, said school Principal Tom Carone.

When 47 civic and business leaders took a three-day visit to Greenville, S.C., one person not on the trip, but watching closely, was Akron mayor-elect Dan Horrigan.

Greater Akron Chamber of Commerce Chief Executive Officer Dan Colantone had said it was decided after some discussion to invite current leaders on the trip, which was designed to see how the South Carolina town redeveloped its downtown, among other things.

Huntington to keep regional headquarters in Akron after FirstMerit merger
By John Harper, cleveland.com
on February 22, 2016 at 10:53 AM, updated February 22, 2016 at 12:19 PM

AKRON, Ohio -- Huntington Bank will operate a regional headquarters and foundation in Akron after it completes its merger with FirstMerit, the Akron Beacon Journal reports.

Huntington, which is on the hook to keep at least 1,150 people employed in Akron through 2018 per a job-creation agreement with the city, told the newspaper that it could add even more jobs at the FirstMerit tower in downtown Akron. It will also run a charitable foundation similar to FirstMerit's, specifically for Akron and Summit County.

This is what I've been wondering since the merger was announced. What will it mean for the jobs in downtown Cleveland? Isn't that Huntington's regional headquarters right now?

PNC wants its name in lights on downtown Akron building
By Betty Lin-Fisher
Beacon Journal business writer
Published: May 4, 2016 - 05:43 PM

PNC Bank wants people to look to the Akron skyline and think of the bank.

The Pittsburgh-based bank or its predecessors — the bank bought National City in 2008 — have had a downtown Akron presence for 47 years.

Yet, while other tall buildings in downtown’s skyline including FirstMerit Bank and FirstEnergy Corp. have their names emblazoned on their buildings, PNC’s 23-story, dark brown building has had no branding on top. It has some limited signage at street level.

Stage Left building next to Akron’s Civic Theatre faces final curtain

Other than acknowledging Main Street Partners remains interested in its remaining properties next to the Civic, Crews said he could not comment on any plans.

“I know it’s important. People want to know,” he said. “I really can’t talk about it at this minute.”

Akron looks to spark long-delayed development project on Main Street
June 25, 2016 Updated 17 hours ago
By JENNIFER CONN

An April 1 letter from the mayor to the developer detailed a final series of cures for the retail buildings. To avoid default, Main Street Partners also must pay all past due property taxes within 120 days (Aug. 1); begin construction within 90 days (July 1); and complete construction within 180 days (Oct. 1).

In meetings following the April 1 letter, the mayor and Main Street Partners agreed to reduce the number of buildings in the project from the Landmark and the five retail spaces to only the Landmark and the two buildings just south of it. The remaining three retail buildings will be put out for bid to other developers, the mayor said.

Jack Crews, Main Street Partner principal, said he anticipates the project will move but could not yet disclose the contractor for the project nor details of its funding. Crews said under the project, the Landmark will be redeveloped to provide 76 one- and two-bedroom, market-rate residential units, while phase two of the project would create 30 additional residential units in the retail buildings.

Akron receives federal grant to help it embark on Downtown Promenade project
July 27, 2016 Updated 17 hours ago
By Sue Walton

The city of Akron long has been looking to transform Main Street, and now it has the federal funds to help it do it.

The U.S. Department of Transportation has awarded the city a $5 million Transportation Investment Generating Economic Recovery (TIGER) grant to support the Downtown Akron Promenade project, according to a Wednesday, July 27, press release.

I'm curious to see how the Downtown Promenade investment turns out, plus the roundabout that they are talking about as well, something that seems rather unusual and unexpected for Downtown Akron. The funny thing is, I could see it working though, and that it will probably wind up becoming the first of dozens of additional others to be installed around town at key places in various communities. Who knew that Tallmadge Circle would ever become a sort of model to be duplicated, even if on a smaller scale?

Between this and the Better Block demos--Middlebury this weekend (East Market & South Arlington)--it does seem like Akron is trying to jump start its redevelopment, even if it is a painstakingly slow process. But we are starting to see the outward flow of ideas and also the seeding of new potential within the city under Horrigan's administration, processes that were really stagnant for years during Plusquellic's administration. Perhaps by the end of the decade, we will be able to see something in the way of genuine fruit growing out from these renewal efforts.

A parade of bicyclists on Thursday christened Akron’s new cycle track — a loop that runs along South Main Street and the Towpath Trail downtown.

The path is part of the city’s effort to become more bicycle friendly and to encourage people to leave the Towpath Trail and experience downtown.

Akron wants to move Lock 4 redevelopment forward; files complaint against developer
By Jennifer Conn, Akron reporter, cleveland.com
on October 11, 2016 at 10:57 AM, updated October 11, 2016 at 12:33 PM

KRON, Ohio -- The city of Akron wants the deeds back to key properties in the heart of the central business district.

The buildings, intended to provide much-needed downtown residential housing, have sat stagnant despite a development agreement inked years ago.

The city recently filed a complaint in Summit County Common Pleas Court and wants Main Street Partners and BTE Enterprises, both headed by Jack Crews of Kent, and Greg Kaser of Terramark Partners in Georgia, to respond by the end of the month.

The AAA Akron Auto Club has moved into its new home in downtown Akron, just across the street from the Metro regional transit station on South Broadway.

“We definitely have a transportation theme here,” President and Chief Executive Officer Brian Thomas said as he looked out of his office window to the Metro station across the street. “We have the bus depot and trains passing by behind it.”

Akron redevelopment plan outlines steps to a vibrant downtown
November 15, 2016 Updated 2 hours ago
By CRAIN'S AKRON BUSINESS

It's no secret that residential housing has been a key talking point for plenty of Akron officials about how to invigorate downtown. Now that issue — and focusing on a revitalized Main Street — is front and center in Phase 1 of the Downtown Vision and Redevelopment Plan Akron Mayor Dan Horrigan unveiled Tuesday, Nov. 15, at a news conference.

"To compete regionally and nationally, Akron must have a thriving and prosperous urban core," Horrigan said in a statement. "We have remarkable potential for growth in Akron, but we need a long-term vision for our downtown and a deliberate, realistic plan to create conditions that will spur catalytic private sector investment."

Akronym Brewing hopes for fall opening in downtown Akron
By Rick Armon Published: February 14, 2017

 The street-level property, at 58 E. Market St., is across the street from the Crave restaurant and around the corner from the Akron Art Museum and Akron-Summit County Public Library. The Akronym partners hope to be an anchor in the area and spur additional development there.

“We found that spot through the city and couldn’t be more excited about where we’re at,” Adams said.

I always wondered if they'd ever find a tenant for that space. I expected an agency office or maybe a small law firm. Never thought it would be a brewery! I'm impressed.

Too bad we lost 3 Point at the same time, though. It would be nice to see that section of downtown reach some kind of critical mass of vibrancy.

Akron plans to make 4 downtown one-way roads two-way
By Emily Bamforth, cleveland.com
on February 21, 2017 at 2:56 PM, updated February 21, 2017 at 2:58 PM

AKRON, Ohio -- Driving downtown in Akron might look drastically different soon, as the city looks to convert four major one-way streets to two-way traffic, Mayor Dan Horrigan said.

Work on W. Exchange Street is expected to begin in the spring. Converting it and its pair, Cedar Street, to two-way traffic could slow down traffic, said Mayor Dan Horrigan. That would make the area more pedestrian friendly, attracting businesses.

I don't see much more happening development-wise downtown until all these big construction projects are done on I76, innerbelt, sewer project, updating main st which includes State st bridge, and this exchange and Cedar update. 
  The innerbelt project/road diet will give First Energy the option to build a new HQ on reclaimed land should they want to. That decision is probably a year or 2 away.

There is still a great deal of development potential downtown even without the completion of the Innerbelt or the sewer project, though of course the sewer project greatly handicaps the ability of the City itself to do much other than offer tax abatements (which the mayor strongly intends to do) for residential development.  But downtown Akron is not at all land-poor even without the availability of reclaimed land from the Innerbelt diet.  If anything, downtown Akron's weakness is that it is so spread out that there is not an obvious place for development to concentrate.  It's actually a surprisingly long walk even from Cedar to Market, which is really only the "heart" of downtown, not the full thing.

My guess is that the city and developers will begin to look towards reactivating the neglected East Market/Perkins-MLK corridor, which has the potential to become a mix of residential and commercial space (plus Summa and UA) if done properly. This area needs density in the worst way.

The City is aware of this and like many is surprised there are not more amenities in that area for the largest private employer in Summit County.

"With the many changes occurring to the streets around the hospital and the increased activity in the downtown area, making Exchange Street two-way will help slow traffic and make it safer and easier for patients and families trying to navigate our campus," she said, in the press release. "The enhanced connection with downtown will also make it easier for our families and staff to enjoy downtown businesses and activities."

The release also notes that the change could make it easier for safety vehicles to navigate the area, especially from Ohio Route 59.

Developers working to reopen vacant Akron hotel
Amani Abraham, WKYC 11:25 PM. EST February 24, 2017

AKRON - Developers in downtown Akron are jumping into a new venture with hopes of creating more living space in the area.
 
The sky-high plan includes $25 million in renovations to the vacant 19-story Akron City Center Hotel that would make space for about 80 hotel rooms, and between 80 and 100 apartments (one and two-bedroom apartments.) Testa said the price to rent one of the apartments would range between $900 and $1,200.
