Stoney Pointe developer drops request for zoning variance

December 06, 2016

Stoney Pointe Commons, a development that will provide housing for Akron’s homeless and disabled, withdrew a request to build a parking lot that was smaller than required by Akron’s zoning laws. In doing so, the developers, Tober Development and Community Support Services, removed an obstacle that could have delayed the start of construction. The renovation of six buildings in Downtown Akron on Main Street also took a step forward Monday when Council approved selling the city-owned buildings to Bowery Development Group. The key piece in the sale was the Landmark Building, which the developers plan to turn into a high-end loft apartment building.
