We have several businesses opening and/or under construction in town… Here is a quick update:
Planet Fitness is open for business at the Towne Mall. Between Gabe’s, Burlington Coat Factory, Mattress Firm and Planet Fitness, Towne Mall now has cars parked out front day and night. We welcome these new businesses to the City.
Construction should begin in the next few weeks on a new out-lot project at the Mall that will include Buffalo Wild Wings and Aspen Dental. The new project includes over $4 million in building construction and $1.25 million in new annual payroll. Watch for progress as they begin construction.
Arlington Pointe has completed their ribbon cutting and is ready to open the 98 bed state of the art rehab and nursing facility off of Cincinnati Dayton Road. The new facility will employ 200 medical and support jobs and should be fully operational by this fall.
NTE Power Plant
NTE continues construction and is expected to be completed in about 30 months. This $600+ million project will generate significant construction income tax and will provide 35 full time positions when completed.
Nicholas Place Apartments
Construction is underway at Nicholas Place Apartments on Towne Boulevard. The facility will feature 216 new market rate apartments in our City with open space, pool, clubhouse, basketball courts, a grill area, dog park and community garden. Apartment models and lease space will begin as buildings are completed.
AK Steel Research and Innovation Center
Construction continues on the AK Steel Research and Innovation Center at the highway with expected completion in October of this year. The $36 million facility will offer state of the art research in support of AK Steel.
Flores Leather Works
Not to forget our smaller businesses, I attended the ribbon cutting recently at Flores Leather Works downtown on Central Avenue. Beautiful craftsmanship of quality products. Stop downtown soon and see what you’re missing!
Have a great day!
