Middleburg Heights, Ohio: Retail Development Sparked by Goodman Real Estate Services Group
“The Middle of Everything” slogan perfectly describes the City of Middleburg Heights. With its proximity to Cuyahoga County’s most densely populated communities, Cleveland Hopkins International Airport, active Metroparks and Emerald Necklace greenway path, downtown Cleveland, the Cuyahoga County Fairgrounds, excellent hospital systems, and high-traffic interstate and highway systems, Middleburg Heights is an excellent base for all that Northeast Ohio has to offer.
Retailers are drawn to the City because it is situated along the busy I-71 corridor, just a few exits south of I-480, and is easily accessible from Berea, Strongsville, North Olmsted, Parma, and Brook Park. It boasts a strong daytime population with numerous businesses, 16,000 affluent residents, and Baldwin Wallace University Campus. Middleburg Heights has nurtured its strong economic base and market-friendly community, making it an exceptional environment for businesses, resulting in strong commercial growth. Over the past 25 years, Goodman Real Estate Services Group LLC has successfully completed seven new developments in the area and currently has six active listings in the City.
18055 Bagley Road (2006) - Richard Edelman, Senior Vice President/Principal, at Goodman Real Estate Service Group LLC, represented a developer acquiring the property to construct a new two-tenant retail building for Chipotle and the first Caribou Coffee drive-thru in northeast Ohio. In 2013 Caribou rebranded all the Cleveland area stores to Peet’s Coffee, however subsequently closed the remaining locations at the end of 2014. In 2015, Steve Altemare, Senior Vice President with Goodman Real Estate Services Group LLC, represented Starbucks' leasing of the drive-thru endcap and the building is currently 100% occupied.
