Developers propose single-family homes, townhomes in southwest corner of Strongsville – cleveland.com
STRONGSVILLE, Ohio – Three firms have proposed building a sprawling residential development, including clustered townhomes and single-family homes, on more than 100 acres in the southwest corner of town.
North Park Developers LLC and Parkview Homes, which share office space on Royalton Road in Strongsville, are partnering with Tiburon Investments Inc. in North Royalton on the project. They would build the homes between Drake Road to the north, Boston Road to the south, Prospect Road to the east and Marks Road to the west, according to maps submitted to the city.
First, however, the developers need City Council to rezone the land, some of which is now zoned industrial. In Strongsville, rezoning land from industrial to residential doesn’t need voter approval.
The development and rezoning are similar to those proposed in 2017 by North Park and Parkview in the same area of the city. That plan and rezoning request apparently fell through.
One difference is that the 2017 plan and rezoning covered about 180 acres, while this latest proposal seems to involve less land. According to the rezoning application and Strongsville Assistant Engineer Lori Daley, the developers want to rezone about 146 acres, although it’s uncertain whether additional property not part of the rezoning would be included in the development.
Chris Becker, president of Parkview’s Land Division, didn’t return calls to provide project details, including the number of homes
