Southwyck news from councilman Collins

I just received this email from him-
Dear Constituent:

I am very pleased to report that the principal owners of Southwyck have collectively agreed to move forward with the demolition of the property known as the Southwyck Mall. I firmly believe this decision and ultimate demolition of the property will provide a vibrant future for the property. It is my understanding that the complete project will require between 6 and 7 months, and the initial phase will begin next week. I believe now we must be patient and have the confidence that private industry will, when the market is right, create a new and vibrant outcome to the property.

I would like to end by expressing my heartfelt appreciation to Mayor Carty Finkbeiner, Dave Amstutz and his team in the Economic Development Department and Larry Dillin for all of their effort and commitment to making this day become true reality. I would further express my appreciation to my predecessor, Rob Ludeman, and Dave Lemon, along with all of the residents in the Southwyck / Regan Woods neighborhood, for their steadfast support and unwavering commitment to the rebirth of this gem in South Toledo.

If you have any questions or comments, please feel free to contact me.

Thank you!

D. Michael Collins
District 2 Councilman

Will the City of Toledo Prevailing Wage Laws be complied with during the work at the property ?

By the way, is the City of Toledo complying with the Prevailing Wage requirements at the Marina District Project ?



They are government bid projects, therefore they use prevailing wage.

to the rebirth of this gem in South Toledo

I think a demolition is more akin to a Death instead of a Birth. When we see progress being made with the construction of buildings and roads then we may call it a rebirth. Otherwise, a vacant lot is just dirt over the grave!

We just entered a Great Depression II. That lot (assuming the teardown is even completed) will remain vacant for a long, long time.

The start of the Commercial Loan Collapse will happen this year. Whatever plans DO exist for the rebuild, will just remain in drawers until the banks can recover, which should take about a decade.
