LSB Seven Hills development team clears final zoning hurdle to keep Rockside Crossings project moving forward.

The City Council of Seven Hills has approved the Rockside Road South PUD zoning needed to move the development project forward.

Held on September 20th at Seven Hills City Hall, surrounded by a large group of Seven Hills residents, the decision serves as a critical victory, clearing a large roadblock for a project that has stalled a few times prior.

For years there have been several developers who have attempted similar projects with little success. However, in a 7-0 vote, the Commission gave the green light to developer LSB Seven Hills, LLC, who purchased the land from Fifth-Third Bank in October of 2015, by granting the zoning it needed to move forward with the project now known as Rockside Crossings.

The development of LSB’s 52-acre site, located along Rockside Road at the northeast edge of the City of Seven Hills, will include a mix of Luxury apartments above various retail shops and restaurants, a hotel, attached homes and a Senior Living Campus.

Jeffrey Graef, President of Focus Development Group and project lead says, “Our team and I must commend the current City Council, Planning Commission as well as the city’s administration for their steadfast determination to work collectively with us while keeping the best interest of the residents at the forefront. This has given my partner and I much comfort that we made the right decision in making such a large investment in the City of Seven Hills and we look forward to continuing that working relationship with its leaders for years to come.”

The LSB Seven Hills development team is made up of Partners Jeffrey Graef and Louis Beck, along with Alan Ritchie of Thompson Hine LLP, Paul Deutsch of Bialosky Cleveland, Jeff Markley of Atwell, LLC, Ryan Sommers of PMC and Steve Altemare of Goodman Real Estate Services.
