Solar Tech Boom Development Update

Perrysburg to Offer Solar Plant Incentives
Job Creation Grant Expected
Posted on WSPD 1370AM website 3-24-2008


The city of Perrysburg plans to offer incentives to help a new solar company move into the former Delafoil plant. City administrator John Alexander says Perrysburg splits payroll income taxes with Toledo and will use a part of its share as a job creation grant.

No word on when the Willard Kelsey Solar Group will begin operations, but it would be Northwest Ohio's fourth solar company joining First Solar, Xunlight, and Calyxo U-S-A. The company has told city leaders it will generate an annual payroll of more than $12 million.

Warehouse District Development Update

I've been told that the Cityboyz Fashion Menswear will be relocating their business from the Westgate area to the space (former Fastenal Hardware and Obama Campaign headquarters) next to Downtown Latte on Saint Clair/Lafayette Streets. Here is the direct link to their site: http://www.cityboyzfashions.com/index.html

IMO, I think it's a great location to fit with the area and with other existing businesses (wellness center, coffee shop, retail, commercial, clubs and restaurants) and certainly for the neighborhood. Also there's a store called "Honey I'm Home" and I would think they would make a nifty addition to the neighborhood in the ongoing redeveloped former Toledo Heater building on St. Clair. Here is their direct link: http://www.honeyimhomeonline.com/aboutus.htm

Willis B. Boyer moving to Marina District?

From WTOL.com:

New marine passenger terminal to welcome the Boyer

Posted: March 25, 2008 03:51 PM EDT

TOLEDO -- The wheels are in motion at the Toledo-Lucas County Port Authority to pump life into the new marine passenger terminal.

Construction on the $3 million facility wrapped up last year in Toledo's Marina District, reports News 11's Rob Wiercinski, who says that new facility may soon have an "old" look.

Activity at the marine passenger terminal involves both short- and long-term planning. The Willis B. Boyer may be moving down river from its current resting spot along International Park to be part of a long-term vision at the Marine Passenger Terminal.

"To create a Toledo Maritime Center, to relay our past, present and future of Toledo's waterfront, which is essentially the foundation of our community," explained Paul Lamarre, the Boyer's executive director and special assistant to the Port Authority president.

While moving the Boyer is still in the development stage, Lamarre says lake ferries docking at the terminal will be taking center stage in the near future.

"We will, without a doubt, be doing some trial runs to potentially service the islands as well as the Detroit community, and that could start happening as early as the late Spring," Lamarre said.

The Port Authority is ready to bring on board Gladieux Enterprises to market and operate the building as a banquet and catering facility. An agreement on that will be presented to the Port board for approval on Thursday.

Franklin Park mall feels dead once you venture outside the new wing. The other 3 wings don't have the pedestrian traffic they used too, and of course the center is no longer a gathering place.

wow you really must be kidding

interesting new fitness club in Maumee


Urban Active, Diabetes Care Center Among Others To Open Soon In Maumee
BY KAREN BERGER — MIRROR REPORTER

The Maumee Chamber of Commerce, including nine new members, learned of business changes and heard from new St. Luke’s Hospital president and CEO Daniel Wakeman during the March 11 luncheon.

Wakeman, who joined St. Luke’s in January, said the relationship between Maumee businesses and the independently owned hospital is one of economic interdependence.

“We need to feed each other to make each other stronger,” he said. “The way to survive a short-term downturn is reaching out to each other.”

Prior to joining St. Luke’s, Wakeman was CEO of Mercy Memorial Hospital in Monroe, starting a $60 million renovation project with new emergency and surgical facilities. He was also president and chief executive of War Memorial Hospital in Sault Ste. Marie, Mich.

While frustrated with the health care wars, which he believes cost consumers more money in the end, he pointed out positive changes at St. Luke’s, such as the May opening of The Diabetes Care Center, which will provide diabetes management services, and the da Vinci robotic surgical system.

Maumee city administrator John Jezak also updated the audience about changes in town.

The retail portion of The Boulevard, a development that runs between Ford Street and Arrowhead Drive, is complete. Serenity Nail Salon has moved in and Tomahawk Development is negotiating leases with several other tenants. The Marriott will be opening in May of this year. The boulevard will be paved and open to traffic next month.

Omnicare, a pharmaceutical care provider, is renovating the Opinion Research building on Longbow and will bring 125 new jobs to town.

The Buehrer Group is expanding into the former Woodard Photography building at 316 Conant St. The architecture and engineering firm purchased the building in May and began renovations in December.

Mezzmerize, a 300-seat Mediterranean restaurant, will open in September at Holland Road and Dussel Drive.

Urban Active is finishing up work on a $10 million, 46,000-square-foot fitness center in the former Lincoln-Mercury location on Conant.

The Holiday Plaza, currently home to Value City, which is closing as part of a company restructuring, has no future tenants identified, Jezak said.

Burlington Coat Factory – once thought to be a viable replacement for the Holiday Plaza location – announced plans to move into the Best Buy and Pharm locations at Airport Highway and Reynolds Road in Toledo by August 29.

The lack of a tenant for Holiday Plaza may be a catalyst for redevelopment, Jezak said.

“Because of the absolute indifference of the owners of Holiday Plaza, I think that the market is indicating that the property has become so obsolete that many would-be tenants view it as an unviable location,” Jezak said later in the week.

The next Maumee Chamber of Commerce lunch is at noon on Tuesday, April 8 at Brandywine Country Club.

yeah, I agree. Last time I was at Franklin Park, it hardly seemed dead to me. I personally can see that hot mess out at Fallen Timbers dying first. It's a poor attempt at a wannabe Levis Commons that's more suburban, less classy, and has nowhere near the food offerings. Fallen Timbers is the mall that sucks most. Talk about a friggin dissapointment. It looks nothing like the renderings promised. Where's the lake, boardwalk, and chiminea? Where's the housing? Where are the f-ing food venues?

I'm not an architect, but I do believe that is the start of some vertical construction. The Blade reported that vertical construction would begin here shortly. I imagine with the good weather we'll really start to see some construction take place here in the next couple of weeks.

Downtown Festival Developments

New downtown ribs festival announced
Posted on WTOL CBS 11 website March 27, 2008


With CitiFest now history, what will happen with those downtown Toledo traditions like Taste of the Town and the Rib-off?

Citifest hosted rib-tasting events at Promenade Park after the original Rib-off event moved out to the rec center. Today it was announced a new partnership has been formed to keep that tradition alive in downtown Toledo.

People enjoyed themselves at Ribs on the River most recently held last August. The big draw is to be able to sample ribs from different vendors and be entertained along the riverfront. Now, the American Red Cross is teaming up with Columbia Gas to hold a similar event on August 1-3. It's going to be called Smoke on the Water -- Ribs for the Red Cross. While there was no mention of which vendors or bands will be there, event sponsors are hoping for big crowds and a successful event.

Jodie Tienvieri of the Red Cross tells News 11, "We believe this is a win-win situation for everyone involved. Not only is it going to help us continue the mission of the Red Cross, but it's going to raise needed funds for community members who may be experiencing disaster or emergency."

As far as filling the void left by CitiFest, a spokesman for Mayor Finkbeiner says the city is getting close to lining up some sort of agreement for downtown event planning. Just who that'll include, or if city funds will be involved, is not known at this time.
