What's in Store for the Hoover Building? Restaurants, Apartments, Retail on The Way

Ohio Realty Advisors says construction on some of the projects could be completed as early as Summer 2013

The Hoover Company building will be seeing some big changes in the coming months as a realty group works to create retail, residential and office space inside the building.

Tim Todaro, leasing director for Ohio Realty Advisors, said restaurants are also in the mix.

"We'd like to have as many restaurants as we can," Todaro said, adding the restaurant lineup will likely contain a sandwich shop and will be determined by market research. The restaurants will be located on the first floor facing Main Street.

He estimates the new additions to the building will take up about 60 percent — about 1.4 million square feet — of its total space. Todaro said he's unsure at this point how many square feet will be devoted to each individual project.

"We're coming up with creative ways to best utilize the space," he said.

The apartments, he said, will be a mix of efficiencies to three-bedroom apartments that could include balconies, outside garden areas and a courtyard in middle of complex. He said the apartments, which would be located on the second through fourth floors, would include lots of natural light and come with convenient parking for tenants.

Construction is likely to start in the spring, and some projects could be completed as soon as Summer 2013.

Todaro said the concepts around the project are still preliminary and renderings aren't yet ready to be released to media, but Ohio Realty Advisors is now designing a website that will keep community members apprised of the project's progress.

Awesome. I am excited for this project to get under way. I lived in a town that used an old mill in a similar way. It was very cool

I have been waiting two years for residential space to be developed in the Hoover building My husband and I wanted so very much to move there since we were told it would be converted to condos. We are ready to downsize and so wanted to be at that location. I feel appartment will eventually negatively impact the area rather than enhance it. I am so sad.
