SYLVANIA TOWNSHIP, OH (Toledo News Now) -
Township trustees have voted to approve a housing development to be built in
the heart of the township, but some residents are concerned.
development will be built on McCord Road, between Sylvania and Central, but not
everyone is on board.
am really concerned about it due to the market and what would happen to the
market," said Ajaj Nasser, a resident of the neighborhood.
one-acre site, purchased by Buckeye Real Estate Group, sits behind houses at
Monarch Meadows. The plan is to build eight condo units, four buildings total. But
it's not just residents that are concerned.
Haddad is the only township trustee that voted against the development. He says
he would have liked to see, at most, six units, not eight. He thinks the land
will be too crowded.
want to develop the township, but I want it done in a proper manner," Haddad
said. "It's about the builders who have money, and they want to just keep
building and building and building, you know, wherever they can find a spot.
And I am not against that, I just want it done properly and planned."
White, the president of Buckeye Real Estate Group, disagrees. He says his
target residents are empty-nesters, couples aged 50-70. He also says his plan
could keep traffic down in the area.
I hit the market that I am looking for, there is only going to be most likely
two people living in them as an empty-nester, as opposed to building a
two-story home there for a family that might have four, five, six people in it
with many more drivers, as well, which would add to their traffic concerns,"
says he understands the concern, but says this will add value to the Monarch Meadows
neighborhood, not decrease it.
reality is this will be built very well, with high quality, and once it is up
with good, solid neighbors in it, I think they are going to be very pleased
with what they see," he said.
