Who are the major players involved in the Chesapeake?
Chesapeake Developer: Mid-States
Development of Dublin, Ohio
Project Architect: Tim Welsh, Meyers/Welsh Architecture and Design of Columbus, Ohio
Why is this development so important to Sandusky?
Chesapeake Lofts represent the first multi-unit residential housing
development along the Sandusky
shoreline. Its completion and that of the entire Paper District exemplifies
a strong commitment to the revitalization of the downtown area. Already,
businesses are inquiring about or making plans to return downtown.
What are the different phases of the Paper District?
The Paper District is a brand new redevelopment of historic downtown Sandusky Ohio.
Mid States Development Corp. has the privilege of working with the City of
Sandusky Ohio to redevelop a large portion of the 42 acre tract on the
shores of Sandusky Bay on Lake Erie.
The first phase will consist of The Chesapeake Lofts, which is a 195 unit
"loft style" condominium project. Amenities to include beautiful
views of Sandusky Bay as well as Cedar Point
Amusement Park, a
private pool and covered parking. Public access around the entire site will
be preserved to allow unlimited access for all to enjoy. Included with
phase 1 will be a new transit marina surrounded by retail shops, eateries
and office space. This area is sure to be a destination spot for boaters
from all around the lake.
We hope the first units of the Chesapeake Lofts will be completed in
early 2007 with the marina and associated retail to follow soon thereafter.
Phase 2 promises to include more of the same including up to 3 new
condominium buildings of 100 units each, more retail and boat slips for
both permanent, monthly and transient boaters. Presently we are attempting
to receive grant money from the State of Ohio to ensure the completion of phase 2
sometime in 2009 or 2010. Just like phase 1, there will be unlimited access
around the entire site to enjoy.
