The long-vacant building near the intersection of Warren and Canton Center roads that is the former home of a PNC Bank branch will be demolished and replaced by a 7,418-square-foot shopping complex if the property owner’s proposal is approved by the Canton Township planning commission and board of trustees.
Malik Hider (Vapiano Property Management, LLC) and Najim Saymuah (CDPA Architects) unveiled the site plan for their proposed multi-tenant commercial building at 7219 N. Canton Center Road (the approximately one-acre property that sits on the northwest corner of the busy intersection) at the Nov. 6 Canton Township Planning Commission meeting.
Patrick Sloan, the township’s community planner, recommended that the planning commission approve the site plan at the Nov. 6 meeting, stating that the plan’s details met all of the requirements of the property’s current C-1 zoning status.
Outdoor dining space revealed
While potential tenants of the proposed project were not identified at the meeting, a rendering included in the plans show an area for outdoor dining on the east side of the building.
The developers said the property’s two existing driveways — one leading to Canton Center, the other to Warren — would be retained.
The developers revealed their willingness to provide cross-connecting drives with the existing Westbrook Plaza shopping center, which includes a Little Caesars and CVS, among other businesses), but Westbrook’s owner stated it would not allow the cross-connecting drives, according to the proposal.
The complex would include 34 parking spaces, four more than what are required in a C-1 zoning district.
