What Stores Should Open Here?

Ederer Real Estate wants to build a multi-tenant retail store next to Rockne's. What stores do you want in there?

Earlier this year, an abandoned building was torn down next to Rockne's on West Market Street. 

An interested party has come forward and wants to build a multi-tenant retail store on the vacant lot, according to the December 2012 Planning Commission agenda. 

Laura George, assistant to Mayor William Roth, said no retailers have been specifically named to occupy the building. 

Todd Ederer, representative from Ederer Real Estate, said a new one-story building will match the aesthetic of Fairlawn's exisiting buildings. 

"This new building is designed to be compatible with the adjacent Rockne's restaurant," Ederer wrote in a letter to the Planning Commission. "Its sleek contemporary styling with significant masonry, metal, and glass elements will set the future tone for this part of Market Street in much the same way as Summit Mall's new image. These new investments reinforce confidence in and desirability of the City of Fairlawn."

This plan has yet to be approved by Planning Commission, and the next meeting is at 5:30 p.m. on Dec. 13.

So since no one has plans to move in, we want to know what stores you want to see go into the building. Or are you opposed to the building in general? Tell us in the comments.
