City of Akron Press Release
Published: 06-28-2016

Akron, Ohio, June 28, 2016–   The City of Akron has obtained the deed to Rolling Acres Mall. Last week, no bids were submitted for the second and final sheriff’s sale for the property. When no bids were submitted June 21, Summit County Assistant Prosecutor Regina Van Vorous filed the order of forfeiture and the paperwork to transfer the deed to the City of Akron, with all back taxes cleared; a transaction that is estimated to be completed late in July.

Mayor Horrigan is pleased there is movement on this property. “This property has been stagnant for far too long. The next step is to work with my administration to devise steps for a long-term plan of first most likely demolishing the structure, which will assure the safety of Akron’s citizens in the area, and then determining a productive and profitable use for the land.”

He added, “We’re open to all possibilities. We’ll need solid plans for development presented to us, when the time is right. I see this property as a great opportunity for thinking big. This is a very large plot of land with great highway access, a great commodity near the heart of the City.”

There has been some developer interest in the property, but no formal presentations have been given or scheduled.
