Bass Pro Shops Development Update

Unique, rustic materials accent Bass Pro store construction; opening scheduled for June 19
Posted on Perrysburg Messenger-Journal website 2/6/2008


Construction of the new Bass Pro store in Rossford is more than halfway complete, and the countdown until opening day is on.

The 150,000-square-foot building in the Crossroads of America, right alongside of I-75, is about 65 percent complete, according to Mike Keane, construction superintendent for general contractor Rudolph Libbe.

"We have until May 14 to turn the building over, and June 1 to finish the deli/ restaurant area, with a grand opening planned for June 19," he said.
In October 2006, the retailing giant Bass Pro Outdoor World LLC committed to opening a store in the area south of State Route 795 and west of Crossroads Parkway.

Last week, Mr. Keane provided a building tour exclusively for the Messenger Journal.

Unique and historic materials are the hallmark of this construction project, including pine trees from North Dakota and boulders from Oklahoma.

Kroger-Levis Commons Development UPDATE

Perrysburg OKs controversial Kroger zoning
By CHRIS MILLER Sentinel Staff Writer


Donald Jahns and his wife Cheryl believed the view from their Roachton Road home would either remain farm fields or, at worst, a possible apartment complex.

But they didn’t expect a new shopping center.
“It just seems to me that it’s already been decided,” Jahns told members of Perrysburg city council Tuesday night.

By a 4-1 vote, with two council members abstaining, council cleared the way for a new shopping center near the southeast corner of Ohio 25 and Roachton Road.

The new retail development, about 88 acres in total, will include a second Kroger store for Perrysburg together with other retail outlets.
For the project to proceed, about eight acres of the project site needed rezoning from RM multi-family residential to PBP Planned Business Park. That was approved with council’s 4-1 vote.

George Oravecz, consulting engineer for developer Timberstone Group Inc., said the project will meet stringent design standards under PBP zoning. This includes claims of extensive landscaping along Roachton Road to serve as a visual barrier for nearby residents.

But Perrysburg Heights residents have objected to the plan since it was first announced last year. The neighborhood, actually part of Perrysburg Township, includes around 500 residents.

Opponents of the rezoning accused the city of reneging on a promise made in the 1990s that development along the south side of Roachton Road, across from the heights, would always include a residential buffer.

The city in its master plan had designated multi-family residential zoning, a strip about five acres deep.

But the prospect of new business development convinced city officials to alter at least some of that zoning to accommodate Timberstone’s project.
The project is located within the city’s “south employment corridor” along Route 25.

Fred Moor, long-time activist for the neighborhood and member of the Perrysburg Heights Community Association, asked council to honor the commitment made more than a decade ago and not alter zoning.
Jahns, who has lived at his Roachton Road home for 30 years, said he would prefer seeing apartments across the road rather than a large grocery store.
In the end, council members Joe Lawless, John Kevern, Maria Ermie and Mike Olmstead voted in favor of rezoning. Tom Mackin voted against it while councilmen Tim McCarthy and Joe Rutherford abstained because their employers do business with the developer on other projects.
It’s not the first time Roachton Road rezoning has spurred objections.
Two years ago, Perrysburg Heights residents protested rezoning the land for business use, and council voted it down 4 to 3. Prior to that, heights residents objected to a trucking terminal and the company ended up building in Middleton Township.

The proposed Timberstone project not only will bring another Kroger store to Perrysburg — the current store along U.S. 20 will remain open — but also new retailers that will occupy additional buildings on site.
The main entrance will face Route 25 but there will be additional entrances off Roachton Road.

Developers claim the project will generate around $22 million in new construction, bring about $450,000 in property tax revenues, and create several hundred retail jobs.

UT Savage Hall Redevelopment Update

Construction results in detours for pedestrians
By Matt Lockwood Posted on UT News website Feb 5, 2008




Fences surround the construction site of the new Savage & Associates Complex for Business Learning and Engagement on Main Campus.

If you typically enter Main Campus from Bancroft Street, you’re probably aware that construction has started on the 54,000-square-foot, $15.4 million Savage & Associates Complex for Business Learning and Engagement that will extend north from Stranahan Hall up the hill between Gillham Hall and Ritter Planetarium.

Because the building is being built into a hill, dirt is being dug up and moved out by heavy trucks.

The construction means that many pedestrians will have to find alternative routes onto Main Campus. Fences have been put up surrounding the work area to protect everyone from the cranes, heavy trucks and drilling rigs that will be used in the initial construction.

“The long-term gain in creating this high-tech facility to educate our next generation of business leaders certainly outweighs the short-term inconvenience of having to walk around the construction site,” said Chuck Lehnert, associate vice president for facilities and construction. “Safety is our primary objective and that’s why the fences are necessary.”

A new concrete sidewalk has been poured between Gillham and University halls leading to Bancroft Street to make that detour a little shorter and cleaner.

The project is expected to be completed and the fences taken down in fall 2009.

ADS Biotechnology Corp. Development News

New corporation created to take potentially lifesaving invention into marketplace
By Tobin J. Klinger Posted on UT News website Feb 6, 2008


An invention by a group of University of Toledo researchers is now the centerpiece of a new corporation, which aims to take the product out of the laboratory and into the marketplace.

On Thursday, Jan. 31, Michael Glembourtt, the president of the recently formed ADS Biotechnology Corp. who has a track record of developing pharmaceutical products, joined leaders from The University of Toledo to discuss their product and hopes for its future use at a news conference on Main Campus.

“We are tremendously excited by the potential for this invention,” said Dr. Lloyd Jacobs, president of The University of Toledo. “It’s efforts like this that can help to transform the economic climate in Toledo, while improving the human condition through medical innovation.”

The invention, a new liquid compound that is polyethylene glycol (PEG)-modified albumin, has use during various medical scenarios where a patient’s blood vessels begin to leak, flooding surrounding tissue, with all-too-often critical results.

In simple terms, the PEG works with the albumin, a protein found in blood, to expand blood’s volume so it will not escape through holes in the blood vessels.

"ADS Biotechnology is very excited about completing this license agreement
with the University," said Glembourtt, president and CEO of ADS Biotechnology. "This discovery has great potential in the marketplace and more importantly may give physicians a much-needed tool to help desperately ill, trauma, burn and sepsis patients."

Three UT faculty members are credited with the product’s creation: Dr. Joseph Shapiro, professor and chair of the Department of Medicine and associate dean for business development; Dr. Ragheb Assaly, director of the UTMC Medical Intensive Care Unit; and Dr. J. David Dignam, professor of biochemistry and cancer biology.

“The creation of this corporation represents a great deal of work, collaboration and passion in an effort to help prevent the millions of deaths that occur around the globe as a result of these types of leaks,” Shapiro said. “While the solution may seem simple, it will take significant time and resources to maneuver through the process of earning approval by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration. ADS Biotechnology will help us make that a reality.”

“We are at a critical stage in the process,” said Dr. Jeffrey Gold, provost, executive vice president for health affairs and dean of the College of Medicine. “We have the drive and the momentum to get a product into the hands of clinicians around the world and have a significant impact on patient survival. This effort exemplifies what The University of Toledo stands for — our dedication to improve globally the human condition and to support the economy of northwest Ohio.”

I don't know much about the project, but I was leaving Home Slice this afternoon, and when I got to the corner of Lafayette and St. Clair streets, I noticed on the corner a sign that there will be a housing development project.

Has anybody heard anything on this?

I covered this is previous post late last summer, it is being developed by the same owners (Martin + Wood Appraisal Group, Ltd) of who's redeveloping the entire former Toledo Heater building. It will be built as if it is facing Lafayette and attached to the Martin + Wood Appraisal Group, Ltd offices with 4-6 units.

Hillsdale: Independence Grove Development

$85M Hillsdale project moves forward
Posted on Toledo Business Journal website February Edition




Construction of Independence Grove at Hillsdale College, an independent living facility, is slated to begin this spring. The project was initially announced in 2005, but it has been delayed for the past two years. According to Maribeth Watkins, director of marketing for the facility, plans for the project have significantly changed, and the new completion date is set for early to mid-2009.

“We have had so many people that wanted to move to Hillsdale sooner [than what the initial project allowed], and we had a number of people that were saying, ‘I want to come, but I want to see what this is going to look like. I need to see something brick and mortar,’” Watkins stated. “We decided that instead of building the entire community all at once, we are going to build half the community. So, instead of having all 164 homes going up, we’re going to have 62 homes going up [to start] along with a smaller community center, initially. We’re going to build 9,000 square feet of the community center to accommodate the 62 homes. That is probably the greatest change.”

Independence Grove has also decided to partner with Drews Place Assisted Living Communities, a long-term healthcare provider. According to Watkins, the partnership has allowed Independence Grove to lower its entrance fees as well as its monthly service fees.

“The main reason for the lower monthly service fee was that we opened up our amenities package,” she explained. “We have a good number of people that want to be here for part of the year and want to be in a warmer climate another part of the year. So, they really want to choose the amenities they are going to be using and how much they are going to be using them. By opening up that package, it allows them more flexibility and decreases the required monthly fee substantially. They’ll have the healthcare when they need it, and they’ll have the help when and if they need it. But they are also allowed these independent decisions in terms of how they’re spending their money even when they’re in the community.”

Amenities include a gourmet restaurant, cafČ / bistro, private dining room, country store, woodworking shop, card / game room, all-purpose room / theater, creative arts and crafts center, billiard room, library / media room / computer center, fitness center, club room / cocktail lounge, and walking paths and nature trails. The monthly service fee includes indoor / outdoor maintenance; 24-hour security and response system; apartment utilities including telephone and cable service; scheduled local transportation; banking and postal services; concierge services; lecture / concert series; cultural, social, and spiritual programs; a dean of studies on campus; and a wellness program. For an additional fee, residents can receive a flexible meal plan, housekeeping and linen service, cottage utilities including telephone and cable service, dry cleaning service, prescription medication delivery, non-local transportation service, and priority access to on-site assisted living.

Residents at Independence Grove will have many opportunities to interact with Hillsdale College events. For example, it will have visits from professors, guest speakers, and students. Additionally, residents are invited to all the college theater and arts programs, sporting events, and lecture and concert series.

“Independence Grove is a half mile from campus. The property was purchased with funds that were donated specifically for this purpose,” Watkins stated. “Our property connects with the (Slayton) Arboretum, which is owned by the college. So, you could be taking a walking path from Independence Grove up through the arboretum and end up on campus.”

According to Watkins, approximately 50 jobs will be created as a result of the first part of the project, and 100 jobs will be created overall.

The general contractor for the project is New York-based LeCesse Construction and the two architects are TMP Associates, Inc. and AG Architecture.

Apartments and cottages will range from $193,000 to $498,000.

“It’s a lot of change, but it’s a really good change,” Watkins added. “We know that when we start to build, enthusiasm will build with it.”

Spencerville: Charles River Lab Development

Allen County lab begins $16M expansion
Posted on Toledo Business Journal website February Edition




Charles River Laboratories (CRL), located in the Village of Spencerville, Ohio, has begun site prep work on a more than $16 million expansion at its Allen County facility. According to the company, the project will include new machinery and equipment, new building construction, and on-site infrastructure. Marcel Wagner, president/CEO of the Allen Economic Development Group, explained that approximately $12 million will be spent on the building and about $6 million will be used for the new machinery and equipment. Construction completion is estimated for mid-2009.

The Spencerville project consists of a new 58,000 square foot single-level addition to be added on the north side of an existing 55,000 square foot building. CRL will utilize the space as a preclinical testing facility to conduct professional laboratory testing services in the drug development business. Ohio was in competition with Massachusetts, Nevada, and the Canadian Province of Quebec for the project, which is expected to create 80 jobs and retain 204 positions within the first three years of its initial operations.

Wagner stated, “Charles River Laboratories also has facilities in Massachusetts, Nevada, and Canada, and it could have done the expansion there. But, our community stepped up as well as the State to put together a nice package of incentives, which allowed the company to do it here.”

According to the Ohio Department of Development (ODOD), CRL has been awarded a 55% credit for a five-year term to expand operations. The value of the tax credit is estimated at $296,902 over the term, and the company is required to maintain operations at the project site for 10 years.

“Charles River Laboratories is a multinational [company]. It has about 8,000 employees nationwide, and the plant here has always been very profitable. It was formerly Springborn Laboratories, Inc.; [CRL] purchased it in 2002, and it has always been operationally very good,” Wagner added. According to a CRL press release at the time of the acquisition, the firm paid $27 million to obtain Springborn; the attainment was designed to expand CRL's market share geographically and add to its customer base a number of medium and smaller pharmaceutical companies that often rely on outsourcing services to a greater degree than large pharmaceutical companies to develop new products.

Amy Cianciaruso, Charles River spokeswoman, added, “The Ohio expansion is in addition to several other expansion projects at Charles River. A key driver of this growth is the continued investment by pharmaceutical and biotechnology companies in basic research and their increased strategic use of outsourced drug development services. With the life science industry laser focused on replenishing product pipelines and managing price competition from inexpensive generic drugs, biotechnology and pharmaceutical organizations are challenged to quickly and cost effectively introduce new drugs to the marketplace. As a result, many of these organizations are streamlining operations and creating cost efficient practices by outsourcing their drug development process to Charles River Laboratories.”

According to Cianciaruso, the company has designed a footprint for the building. Major equipment is consistent with the needs of modern preclinical testing operations and includes heating ventilation and air conditioning systems and controls, laboratory instrumentation, and cleaning / sanitation equipment.

“It’s been a project a fairly long time in coming,” stated Wagner. “We started working with [CRL] last February, and it’s been a good project to work on; we’re excited about it. The Village of Spencerville lost two automotive companies over the past two years (MacDonald’s Industrial Products and Spencerville Metal Systems), which totaled about 300 people. This will replace about 80 of those jobs. So, for the village it’s exciting, because these are better than average paying jobs.”

Charles River Laboratories, established in 1947, is headquartered in Wilmington, Massachusetts and operates more than 80 production facilities in 15 countries with 8,300 employees worldwide.

CRL's customer base includes pharmaceutical and biotechnology companies worldwide as well as academic institutions and government research centers. According to CRL, pharmaceutical and biotechnology companies outsource drug discovery and development research to it because the outsourcing helps the companies put more drug candidates in the pipeline, move those compounds through the pipeline faster, and at the same time control development costs.

Northern Wood County Port Authority UPDATE

Wood County urged to get aboard port authority
Posted on BG Sentinel-Tribune website 2-6-2008
By JAN LARSON Sentinel County Editor


Since port authorities are no longer limited to sea ports, local officials have found out they may be missing the boat if they don’t expand the organization to cover the entire county.

Representatives of the Northern Wood County Port Authority tried Tuesday to convince the Wood County commissioners that the organization should be expanded to benefit every municipality and township in the county.
The commissioners did not seem opposed to the idea.

“It is simply another tool for economic development,” Wood County Administrator Andrew Kalmar said of the port authority.

The port authority was formed in 1999 by Rossford and Perrysburg Township to help with the arena-amphitheater project, which later fell through. Though that project failed, the authority has been successful helping other projects, and has built bridges between Rossford and Perrysburg Township, according to Rex Huffman, legal counsel for the organization.

The port authority helped with the bond financing of the new Owens-Illinois headquarters in Perrysburg, assisted with the Bass Pro project in Rossford, has studied brownfield issues with Libbey-Owens-Ford in Rossford, arranged for a property purchase to aid Perrysburg City Schools.

“It’s a way to bridge those public and private arrangements,” Huffman explained.

A study of the organization has shown that the port authority should expand to cover the entire county, he continued. While the authority can work on projects anywhere in the county, it takes an extra step in the approval process if the entity isn’t already in the organization’s coverage area. That could be detrimental for some projects that need quick action, according to Wade Gottschalk, associate director of the Wood County Economic Development Commission.

“It would be much more efficient to have a county-wide port authority,” Gottschalk said.

It would make it more difficult for outside port authorities to scoop up a Wood County project, Huffman explained.

Without naming the business or the outside port authority, Mike Scott of the Northern Wood County Port Authority, said the local organization is at risk of losing some “substantial” income to another authority eyeing a project here in Wood County.

“We’re concerned, county-wide we should ensure our borders more,” Huffman said.

By having a port authority that covers the entire county, the likelihood is less of a project being backed financially if it is not backed by the community. The commissioners were told of a mega dairy farm that was supported in another Ohio county by an outside port authority.

Both Huffman and Scott said the local port authority has no plans to use its eminent domain powers.

“I can never envision using the power of eminent domain,” Huffman said.
Though they made no commitment, the commissioners promised to study the idea of entering the entire county in the port authority.

“I think it’s safe to say we will be open minded,” Commissioner Tim Brown said.

Enticed by population growth in western Lucas County and beyond, several groups of doctors and Mercy Health Partners may construct an estimated $73 million specialty hospital and medical office building in Monclova Township - and essentially in the backyard of St. Luke's Hospital.

This sounds like a total waste of money and will probably drive up costs even more. St. Luke's is already there and more than adequate for the population in the area.

Yet Dr. Dull said that, while health-care costs may initially increase, the competition ultimately will help decrease them while improving quality.

Ha! They'll keep going up, regardless.

The group also said they appreciated Sylvania's strong sense of community.

That's one of the funniest things I've ever read in my life. Suburbia is the anathema of community. Sylvania has a strong sense of community destruction, suburban sprawl, and an extreme addiction to trashy consumerism.

Only the historic part has any remote sense of community, but it's wholly overwhelmed by the hellish sprawl.
