Westgate Development Project Update

The Westgate Village is taking some steam as they are about to complete the first of the two phases of reconstructing the popular shopping center in west Toledo on Central Avenue and Secor Road. You can see numerous of past posts with pictures and renderings in this thread in regards to this project's progress:

New Westgate Village gateway sign:


New Rite Aid which will open later this week:


First part of the phase with Chipotle making its debut in Toledo later this month along with Starbucks which is opening at the other end of the strip with a drive-thru:


Here is the last phase of the project which many of the tenants have moved into the new first phase of Westgate or have moved elsewhere up the road in other shopping centers and Westfield Franklin Park. This picture shows what is left of the center infrastructure which will make way for the new Costco department store:


Here is an example of some former Westgate Village tenants that have moved out and moved into a new strip that was constructed on Secor Road in front of the Elder Beerman Department store:

Warehouse District Development Update

Here are a couple of photos (1-7-2007) of some recent changes in the Warehouse District in Toledo which is on the southside of downtown.

A couple of months ago this building was rehabbed and opened up with a new Irish Pub called "The Blarney", they have a great atmosphere inside with details, food, and drinks. On the second floor of this building is now the relocated office of one of our local paper which is the Toledo Free Press:


I mentioned this before in past post of this thread in regards to this progress of the rehabbing/retrofitting the old warehouse into Swan Creek Candles Distribution Center and residential lofts. You can see the far right side of the picture will be the lofts developments and the far left which is painted is the new Swan Creek Candles Distribution. The renovations is still ongoing because in most warehouses development the process takes a little time:

University of Toledo Health Campus Development Project

Since the University of Toledo and Medical University of Ohio campuses have merged this past summer. There has been some new developments on the University of Toledo Health Campus (the former MUO campus). You can read previous posts in regards to the University of Toledo news of this thread.

The expansion to the hospital which will be moving and increasing the capacity of the pharmacy school from the main campus of UT. This will involve multi-million dollar investments to the research and expansions of new jobs in the high-tech job market of our region:


On the UT Health Campus there is a huge land that is being developed into a large office park with a park-like setting; there is a new office building that is about to be completed housing an engineering firm that will be expanding with new jobs as well:

Secondly, what is that project located across the street from the new gas station they are building on Auburn and Monroe..Theres a sign that says somthing like Auburn business district coming soon and theres alot of dirt dug up. Is there a new building going there or is that in reference to the gas station going up?

Vader, in my understanding the Artomatic419 will be held every couple of years which they did their first this past September and will not come back until 2008. This building is owned by the Mano's Greek Restaurant and they loaned the building for Artomatic to use for the entire month of September in agreeance of them renovating and cleaning the building at no costs to promote local artists.

That is in reference to the gas station, it's a similar concept to Family Video where they have a building along with annex spaces for other businesses to open up. There will be more developments to my understanding on this corner after this gas station/annex building will be completed.

At this time not that I am aware of, however, if we consider high-rises to be 10+ floors then there is one being proposed but nothing's definite. This photo is the rendering of a mulitple mixed use of a tourist-hotel/condo/retail/boat docking high-rise next to the new I-280 Bridge. A 14-floor high-rise was proposed by a developer about a year ago who is currently seeking additional investments to make this project a reality.

If 5-9 floors, we have one which is in the post such as the Toledo Hospital expansion. With the Marina District I do anticipate some high-rise condominiums to be proposed but it's more of "wait-and-see" because the level of this project is a huge undertaking for the size of our region.

Fifth Third Field Project Developments

Hallelujah! Thank goodness there's a new owner on this piece of property adjacent to the Fifth Third Field. I cannot wait to hear the plans from the new owners once it's revealed. This location is by far the best site anywhere around the baseball stadium. As you've seen previous post about the Irish Pub called The Blarney and the offices of Toledo Free Press. They are right across the street from this property.

I have not heard anything in regards to the Bay Park Community Hospital. Nice to hear about new and existing developments in the Oregon area; I don't travel much in that part of the region unless I go visit my parents out in the sticks. Here's what I know as of now, the U.S. Coking plant will be breaking ground on the Toledo/Oregon border, Menards will be opening a new store on the site in between Brown and Curtice Road, and Mercy Partners (which runs St. Charles and St. V's) bought a huge parcel of land in Rossford near Crossroad Parkway near the proposed site of Bass Pro Shops but haven't revealed any plans.

I have to agree especially when you put it all on a list and consider how active the Toledo region is. I firmly believe all this ongoing and future developments will pay-off very well for this region due to massive economic cycle that has been milling for the past three decades.

Yes, it's the new Penta Vocational School and I'm curious if Rossford/Perrysburg Twp. is considering upgrading the Lime City and Buck Road along with turning lanes and traffic lights. It is an upcoming busy road especially since they've upgraded the Buck Road interchange with I-75. The current Penta Vocational School building is located next to the Owens State Community College campus and the vocational school will be selling the building to OCC as they expand their campus to the west. Good to see redevelopments instead of vacancies.
