Uptown demolition approved for mixed-use project
The Toledo Plan Commission on Thursday approved the proposed demolition of three dilapidated add-on buildings on Madison Avenue near the main Toledo Lucas County Public Library downtown to allow for a new retail and residential development.
During a public meeting at One Government Center, the commission members voted 5 to 0 to allow Crane Development Ltd. to raze the structures at the back of the buildings at 909-915 Madison. They also unanimously approved a developer’s plan to modify and — if necessary — to replace the windows on the buildings’ facades.
The add-on buildings to be razed “are not original to the historic structures, nor visible from the right-of-way,” according to the commission’s staff analysis.
Matthew Rubin, Crane Development president and chief executive officer, said the project will create several retail units on the ground floor of the buildings and 10 residential units upstairs, as well as a 13-spot parking lot.
No timetable was presented to the commission.
