The city has a buyer for a piece of land on White Pond Drive and it could mean more than just money for Akron.
Florida company Rendina LLC wishes to purchase the former Zazo property to build a medical office complex. It could create up to 40 news jobs according to city officials.
This would be the first sale of the 70 acres available for development.
Akron Mayor Don Plusquellic will ask for City Council's approval for this purchase tonight.
“We hope that this development will spur more office development within the new White Pond Office Park consistent with our original plan to add more job opportunities for our residents,” Plusquellic said in a city press release.
