Strategic development key to future growth

Commercial development with new stores and apartments that has recast University Circle the last four years is encountering its next challenge: a dearth of available empty sites that are under the control of University Circle Inc. and ready for development, or sites that are underutilized within its square-mile domain.

Consider Fairview Park-based WXZ Development Co.’s next project on East 118th Street in University Circle. WXZ already has built the Circle 118 project at East 118th and Euclid Avenue and just north of there has just finished 17 units at what it calls the 118 Flats project.
