The Village is very excited about a number of projects that have started to take development. Many of these projects will bring new exciting businesses to the Village that we hope will have great success for years to come.
New Industrial Buildings:
• At the old Hostess sites demolition has been completed. The Building Department is currently reviewing permit applications for the two brand new buildings that will be going up over the next year. We are optimistic that the development will bring new and exciting businesses to the Village with an opportunity for job growth.
• Lollipop is a new restaurant/lounge that has opened on Lawrence Avenue. The menu will feature lunch and dinner options. We are excited to welcome the new business into the Village and hope to see it succeed.
A changing River Road
• Work is beginning on the old Atlas-Toyota buildings. The Village is excited to welcome iCombat to the 5050 River Road building and Short Fuse Brewing Company to the 5040 River Road building. Both businesses are helping to change the design of River Road and we are excited to see the completed products! This vision is in-line with our current Comprehensive Planning efforts as we seek to identify greater commercial opportunities along River Road.
