Didnt really know it was that far along. Lots of new businesses out that way. I was also wondering about that Westfield expansion. i was out there last night getting the new Halo 3 and remembered herein about them tearing down the apartments to expand the mall even more. so thanks for that update... i saw theres an article about it in the paper

Yet the newly designed logo doesn't match Cincy, but rather Toledo. What do you think 5/3's plans are for their Cincy HQ?

They're not about to leave Cincinnati or anything like that, though they do have a hell of a lot of office workers in downtown Toledo.

If anything, Fifth Third would move to a white collar suburb of Cincinnati before Toledo.

Then again, stranger things have happened and banks are constantly merging/buying each other out. The more likely scenario would be a large banking corporation like Keybank, Huntington, or National City would merge/buy out Fifth Third. That could move the corporate HQ to Cleveland or Columbus. Toledo's big banks have mostly merged with National City, and the formerly independent Skybank is now merged with Huntington. The Skybank merger actually won't hurt downtown Toledo, but the suburbs will lose some jobs.

Southwyck Redevelopment Controversies

I have two local TV media chiming in about the controversy in regards to the redevelopment project of Southwyck Mall, there is three seperate articles on it:

Southwyck Dillards controversy
WTVG 13abc.com--September 27, 2007


In less than a week, the new Dillard's store at Fallen Timbers opens for business, but not without controversy. 13abc's got a sneak peak at the new store, that some hope is not a place you choose to shop, at least not yet. The main reason is there are still hard feelings over what's not happening at the Dillard's store at Southwyck.

A lot of care goes into a new store opening. The new Dillard's store is a jewel to the company and they showed it off today.
Dillard's store manager Chuck Thomas says, "Offering really compelling merchandise and offering the latest in fixture and design, hopefully they will check us out and stay for the day."

Councilman Rob Ludeman knows Dillard's does not need three stores in the Toledo area. He is frustrated Dillard's refuses to let a developer take over the Southwyck property. So he believes the threat of eminent domain may be Toledo's best play.

"I think that we could move him off dead center and finally make Southwyck go."

Making Southwyck go again would be good for people like Robert Lagger who lives near what's now a dying mall.

Councilman Frank Szollosi goes so far as to encourage a boycott of the new Dillard's store. He says if the storeowner insists on acting irresponsibly at Southwyck, Dillard's shoppers should fight back.

A boycott may be a tough sell to shoppers, but all agree something needs to be done about a mall site.

It might be Dillard's is just delaying a decision on Southwyck until the store at Fallen Timbers is up and running. Official opening therefore Fall Timbers is next Wednesday. Meanwhile, the Southwyck store is still open, but for how long.



Dillard's at Fallen Timbers opening this week
Sep 27, 2007 07:18 PM posted on WTOL CBS website


Dillard's employees are keeping busy....setting out the jewelry, the cosmetics, the clothing. Getting ready to open at fallen timbers.

Chuck Thomas said, "Location, location, location. I think it's great you come off the road and look to your right, and there's Dillard's. That's a good place to be."

Dillard's is planning for a "soft opening", starting on Saturday, to give the staff time to smooth out operations at the new store. The old store at Southwyck is targeted for closing, and councilman Frank Szollosi says he's frustrated with the company for not selling off its stake in the struggling mall so it can be redeveloped. He said, "The citizens of Toledo, and really the citizens of this region who care about and have a vested interest in the success of Toledo, shouldn't shop at Dillard's until they become a more responsible corporate citizen."

Speaking with shoppers at Southwyck, many say they're holding no hard feelings about the move. Nick Bierlacki said, "It's sad to see this go for me. At least it's convenient, but what can you do... business is business. I do plan to shop at the new store."

Jane Raab also plans to shop there. "Absolutely. I think they'll have the same name brands that I love, and absolutely I'll give them my business."

That's exactly the attitude the Dillard's management at Fallen Timbers is hoping for.

Dillard's spokesman Chuck Thomas said, "I think we have a loyal customer, and I think they'll see that we're very committed to the area. Hopefully they'll see that and give us an opportunity to prove it again."



WTOL Editorial: The situation at Southwyck
Sep 28, 2007 05:15 AM EDT posted on WTOL CBS website


The mess at Southwyck is complicated and may not be resolved anytime soon. That's too bad. This area of Reynolds road is a gateway to the city for drivers getting off the turnpike. The first impression of Toledo is not pretty.

It's clear the Dillard family and the owners of the mall are not going to cooperate. Even an offer of $11 million dollars from developer Larry Dillon did not get them to the negotiating table.

They have very little incentive to end this deal. They can sit on the property, pay the taxes and watch the city squirm. What they want is for the taxpayers to bail them out at a nice profit. They have done so in other cities, and made a lot of money.

So the mayor is threatening to acquire the property through eminent domain. That's a tricky option. It can be tied up in court. The legal fees add up quickly, and Toledo will have a tough time justifying its case.

I'm Bob Chirdon. Long ago, mayor Finkbeiner promised to resolve the Southwyck situation. Well, he hasn't. And he seemed so sure it would happen. I think he may have overestimated his ability and underestimated his opponents.

St. Luke's Diabetes Care Center Development

St. Luke's Hospital breaks ground for northwest Ohio's only comprehensive, fully-integrated diabetes care facility
Posted on the The Messenger Journal website 9-28-2007


When a patient is diagnosed with diabetes, his or her life changes from that moment forward, said Dr. Stephen Bazeley, family practitioner and chairman of the St. Luke's Diabetes steering committee.
Last Thursday, St. Luke's Hospital broke ground for northwest Ohio's only comprehensive, fully-integrated diabetes care facilityÐthe Diabetes Care Center. The 5,300 square foot, $1.5 million facility, located on the St. Luke's campus, Monclova Road in Maumee, will offer medical services, support facilities, wound care and function as a clearinghouse for education and information.

St. Luke's Hospital CEO and President Frank Bartell III told the more than 100 guests attending the ceremony that it is an exciting day for St. Luke's and the community of northwest Ohio.

"As we began talking about a diabetes center a few years ago with our physicians and staff who treated our patients with this disease, it became very clear that our patients needed more than what was currently available to them. They needed one place to lean on as they faced the facts of this disease and learned to live with it. They needed a reliable source of information and some big shoulders to lean on, especially early in their diagnosis. And they needed services of a hospital they trusted to help them as they confronted some of the complications they can experience with diabetes," said Mr. Bartell. "Today's groundbreaking will directly affect the lives of thousands of people in our communities."

He stated that by the end of 2007 approximately 21,000 people in northwest Ohio will be diagnosed with diabetes.

NexGen Biofuels Development News

Ottawa County is the most eastern county of Toledo MSA district and the county has a population of over 40,000 residents. This proposed site is located about 20 miles east of downtown Toledo along State Route 2.

$200M ethanol company considers Ottawa Co.
Posted on Toledo Business Journal website September edition


NexGen Biofuels Inc. is considering a 60-acre Ottawa County site in Port Clinton’s Lake Erie Business Park for the location of a $200 million ethanol production plant. According to Jamie Beier Grant, director of the Ottawa County Improvement Corporation (OCIC), her organization has been working with NexGen for the past year and a half in efforts to bring the company’s multi-million dollar investment to northwest Ohio.

NexGen Biofuels representatives have confirmed that the company has been in discussions with State and local officials regarding a financial incentives package for the project and has begun the permitting process with the Ohio EPA. The Erie Township site is one of several being considered by the company, which will make its decision once State and local incentives have been confirmed and proper permits have been issued.

“I believe that once [the proper permitting, financing, and incentives] are secured, the company would make the decision to locate here,” Beier Grant added. “The State and local incentives have not been negotiated or approved. My estimation is that by the end of this year, we’ll know an answer from the company.”

The plant would create an estimated 45 jobs at startup with average pay rates ranging from $15 to $18 per hour. According to the company, corn that is used as the feedstock – or input – for the ethanol refining process will be purchased mostly from within a 60-mile radius of the plant. At full capacity, the plant is projected to produce more than 100 million gallons per year (MGPY).

NexGen Biofuels Inc., with offices in Tampa, Florida and New York City, is a renewable fuels company that plans to develop four 100 MGPY ethanol plants and two 50 MGPY biodiesel plants in six states, according to the company. The plants will be built in two phases with the first phase yielding two ethanol plants and two biodiesel plants and the second phase yielding two more ethanol plants.

The plants will be located in Arkansas, Alabama, Indiana, Iowa, Ohio, and Wisconsin. The intended plants will have an initial annual capacity to process 36.4 million bushels of corn each for the ethanol plants and 500 metric tons per day of vegetable oil / animal feed each for the biodiesel plants. The ethanol plants will also produce 275,000 tons of distiller dried grains (animal feed), 15,000 metric tons of corn oil, and 270,000 tons of raw carbon dioxide, each per year as byproducts. The biodiesel plants will produce over 16,500 tons of glycerin each per year as a byproduct. The plants will take from 12 to 18 months to build – from design to operation; the first phase is scheduled to commence construction this year.

Ram Ajjarapu is president and CEO of NexGen Biofuels. He most recently co-founded two 100 MGPY ethanol projects, including obtaining all necessary permitting and raising all of the debt and equity. In addition, he also negotiated the Engineering, Procurement, and Construction (EPC) contracts for both projects and set up procurement and off-take agreements for each site. He obtained Tax Increment Financing (TIF) of $10 million each along with securing sales tax refunds and community grants. He then sold the two projects (Wahoo and Sutton, both in Nebraska) to American Ethanol, Inc., which later announced its merger with a public shell. He has a B.S. in Electrical Engineering and an M.B.A. in Finance from the University of South Florida. He has more than 15 years of experience in a range of management aspects, including sales, finance, and administration.

Western Union Redevelopment News

I'm going to provide my insight of what's going on in downtown, there is a huge banner put on the historic Western Union building recently on Jefferson and Huron indicating they are going to be redeveloping this 5-story building. It will be housing the non-profit regional law firms of Legal Aid of Western Ohio, Inc. and Advocates for Basic Legal Equality, Inc. which will be making its move from the Spitzer Building to expand their firms according to several of my sources.

I think this will be announced during the downtown arena press conference on October 1, 2007 in regards to surrounding redevelopments around the new arena.

Warehouse District/Arena Update

The redeveloped former Toledo Heater Company building on St. Clair and Lafayette Street now house the Martin Wood Appraisal firm which they've done a great job with the new St. Clair Village clock tower, restoring the original bricks, new windows, etc, etc...they had a grand opening this past Thursday night and it sure was a busy event. Now the other end of this soon-to-be redeveloped building will be finished soon with the Paul Sullivan Architect firm and other use and also will be building a 4-6 unit three-floor townhouses anchoring to the former Toledo Heater Company facing Lafayette in between St. Clair and Depot Streets in the green space portion of the block.


Downtown Toledo sports arena
Posted on the WTVG 13abc.com--September 28, 2007


Demolition is nearly complete at the site so Monday construction crews begin work on the new downtown sports arena. While that's happening, there is an effort to attract new businesses to that area. 13abc was at the new arena site where there is a model of success to follow. That model naturally is Fifth Third Field. The success there could mean success here. Who can argue, Fifth Third Field has not made a huge difference in the warehouse district.

Kathy Steingraber from the Toledo Warehouse District Association says, "I think it created a lot of excitement."
Excitement that enticed restaurants and nightspots into vacant buildings just steps from the ballpark that will help turn St. Clair into a vibrant neighborhood again.

"In the early 90's we said we could do it and it's coming around."

It came around last night when an old warehouse reopened as the new appraisal firm with 31 employees spending time down here everyday.

President of Martin Wood Appraisal, Ken Wood says, "There's been a lot of other companies that have already made the move and we hope a lot more continue to come."

Toledo has another shot of replicating the success at Fifth Third Field once the sports arena is built; right across from the arena, and all around the arena, is a lot of available space. Space where restaurants, clubs, and even small retail stores could thrive. The vacancy rate is roughly 20 percent. By keeping downtown streets clean and crime free, the Toledo downtown improvement district hopes business owners will seize an opportunity.

With Fifth Third Field its guide, the sports arena could enhance a growing entertainment district and change how we feel about our city.

The groundbreaking for the new arena is Monday morning. Work has already begun to get businesses thinking about moving down here.

Titan Tire Expansion Development

Bryan, Ohio is about 40 miles west of Toledo right close along I-80/90 Ohio Turnpike and it's part of Toledo and Northwest Ohio region. It is also the home of the famous Ohio Art Company, think Etch-A-Sketch and Betty Spaghetti Noodle. It's a good thing 200 new jobs is planned to be created with the expansion of this company. They are opening a Menards Distribution Center for the eastern Midwest region nearby Bryan as well.

Marina District progress?

Isn't Mr. Dillin obligated to announce nearly $50 million in development commitments by tomorrow? See this article: http://toledoblade.com/apps/pbcs.dll...030346/-1/NEWS

Hopefully the news outlets won't let this deadline pass without a follow-up. If the Marina District doesn't get going soon, there won't be any retail to put there. With Fallen Timbers, the Downtown in general and new Arena, Southwyck (IF it ever moves forward), Levis Commons, Perrysburg Point (across 475 from Levis Commons), Bass Pro and Rossford area, etc. we're fast running out of first-to-market retail and restaurants that aren't here already. Don't get me wrong, there are plenty of higher-end retail stores, etc. that are not here yet (Saks, California Pizza Kitchen, Cheesecake Factory, Whole Foods, Apple, Crate & Barrel... and why can't we get a Zingermann's store here, they're in Ann Arbor!), but we do seem to be close to having one of everything. It's like Noah's Ark around here.

Hopefully, Larry Dillin will come through and secure some tourist-attracting stores for our beautiful waterfront some time in my lifetime. Yup, I'm an optimist.

Love the idea of having California Pizza Kitchen , Cheesecake Factory, Whole Foods, Apple, Crate & Barrel, Zingermann's to be part of the Marina District but I could do without Saks. Adding to the list Eddie Bauer Home Store, IMAX theatre, Border's or Barnes & Noble, and Trader Joes would be a huge plus for me.

I think Dillin will be making the Marina District announcement very soon even though it stated Oct. 1st or soon afterwards. IMO, I think they will be making the news sometime once the new Ferry Terminal is near completion. If you notice, the Arena groundbreaking press conference took the thunder of today's news.

By virtue of the developments of Marina District, I want to see high-rise structures of residential developments along the river which would bring in additional population and income into the core of the city.

I guess we'll have to stay tune...with much anticipation......
