  • A long-awaited project is finally about to move forward after a several month delay. Green City Council recently approved the final plan for Heritage Crossing, which will be constructed along Massillon Road.
    “We are trying to get into a position to begin site grading and infrastructure work so that the Acme Fresh Market building can be under roof before winter weather,” said Jim Nilsen president of Albrecht Incorporated.
    In addition to the Acme building, three separate buildings will be constructed. They will house retail, services and dining options. The total square footage of the additional retail buildings will be 31,178.
    The first building will attach to the south wall of Acme and face Massillon Road. Design of the building will consist of stone walls and a two-sided stone tower. Decorative awnings are also planned for the front of the building.
    Building two will face north and be located in the southwest corner of the property. The third building will be located in the northeast corner of the property and face Massillon Road. Plans call for outdoor patios and storefront windows to help create the front look of the building. There will also be an option for a drive-thru to be constructed on the side of several of the buildings.  
    “The plan remains to open Acme in late spring or early summer of 2014,” Nilsen said. “We are still also working with a good group of potential small shop retail and restaurants tenants, but none yet are ready to announce.”
    Lighting for the plaza calls for poles throughout the parking lot along with poles lining areas where pedestrians walk in front of the buildings.
    The main freestanding sign to identify retailers within the plaza will be placed on the south side of the Massillon Road entrance to the plaza. A sign for the Graybill Road entrance was proposed also. Both signs would feature a space for 12 tenants.
