The Property is situated in the heart of the region’s primary retail corridor directly across from Belden Village Mall and one exit north of both the Pro Football Hall of Fame and the new $800 Million mixed-use development known as Hall of Fame Village. When completed, Hall of Fame Village will be a mixed-use center of entertainment, residences, offices, research and health care and a year-round destination with indoor rides and attractions. The 96.7% occupied Property is anchored by Kohl’s, Dick’s Sporting Goods, Value City Furniture, JoAnn Fabrics, DSW, Fresh Thyme, PetSmart, World Market, Arhaus and Party City and includes numerous other national and regional tenants. The Property is also shadow-anchored by a 115,504-square foot Target store.
