Green Council Hears from Acme Developer

9/13/2012 – South Side Leader

By Emily Chesnic

GREEN — A presentation made during Green City Council’s Planning, Community and Economic Development Committee meeting Sept. 11 whet the appetites of officials and residents for a new grocery store and additional restaurants in the city.

Jim Nilsen, president and treasurer of Albrecht Inc., was present to discuss the local real estate company’s request to amend the general development plan of the Heritage Crossings development to better accommodate the Acme Fresh Market planned for the Massillon Road site.

In January, Albrecht announced it would construct a 68,000-square-foot grocery store in Heritage Crossings.

In addition to the Acme, Nilsen said Heritage Crossings will feature about 28,000 square feet of retail and restaurant space. The buildings would be built with the highest quality materials and feature deep sidewalks for enhanced walkability, outdoor patio areas for dining and landscaping, he said.

Nilsen said Albrecht is asking Council to amend the general development plan to better address the visibility and accessibility of Acme.

“We are bringing the residents of Green an additional grocery opportunity and plan for small-shop retail and different and new restaurants,” he explained. “The goal is to have both parties in harmony.”
