Johnson Controls HOF Village

Johnson Controls Hall of Fame Village

Exciting progress is being made every day at Johnson Controls Hall of Fame Village, a massive mixed-use development of the Pro Football Hall of Fame’s campus, under way in Canton, Ohio. It will be the first-ever sports and entertainment “Smart City.” Ten major components will be integrated through technology to subtlety and seamlessly share the values from the Game – commitment, integrity, courage, respect and excellence – with guests in a way that will impact their lives.

Investors believe these efforts will catapult the center, built in 1963, into becoming the theme park destination of the future welcoming NFL fans and players alike; a “Disney World of Football.”

As master developer for Johnson Controls Hall of Fame Village, Industrial Realty Group coordinates support from the combined public and private efforts of the Pro Football Hall of Fame, Canton Chamber of Commerce, Canton’s Mayor, Canton City Schools and the Stark County Convention & Visitors’ Bureau. The venture is expected to become the largest tourism investment in the State of Ohio’s history.

Promenade at Downey

The Promenade at Downey is a new promenade-style shopping center development in Downey, California; it is a community gathering spot and shopping destination, in the historical center for aerospace and entertainment industries. The site was previously home to Downey Studios, one of the largest movie sound studios in the United States (developed by IRG), and NASA, which manufactured components for Saturn and Apollo spacecraft missions on the property. The 450,000 square foot, Promenade at Downey is now a mixed-use development and includes retail space, with a wide array of shops and restaurants, a state-of-the-art movie theater, a health club, and other tenants. Its pedestrian-oriented design incorporates outdoor seating, Wi-Fi, fireplaces, and playgrounds.

Demolition of Downey Studios began in January 2012, and Phase I of construction has been completed, including infrastructure construction and initial site work. Phase II was completed in 2016 and included the remaining horizontal improvements, vertical improvements, tenant improvements, and final environmental remediation.

Throughout their ownership of the property, IRG executed millions of dollars in extensive remediation including 14 years of bio remediation and injections to reduce high VOC levels in the groundwater; removal of more than 1 million square feet of asbestos; and removal of various other toxic substances from the site.

Soon after IRG acquired the Goodyear Tire and Rubber Company campus, Phase I construction began on the new, 642,000 square foot, Goodyear World Headquarters and was completed in 2013. The new headquarters includes a parking structure, as well the revitalization of certain other buildings on Goodyear Tire and Rubber Company’s campus. The Phase I construction, financed in part by EB-5 funding, created significant job opportunities in the region.

Redevelopment nears completion for Phase II, which includes the original 1.4 million square foot Goodyear Headquarters and Goodyear Hall, reimagined as a live, work, play environment known as “The East End.” The East End’s primary use is office space, including large institutional and public government type users and other large office users.

The combination of a hotel, office, medical, retail, restaurants and loft apartments creates a dynamic synergy on the property. The area running along East Market Street has been transformed into a pedestrian-friendly entertainment district, reflecting extensive streetscape improvements and the renovation of Goodyear Theater, a 1,400 seat entertainment destination, adjoined by Goodyear Hall Gymnasium, a center for national, regional and local events. The site recently hosted an event honoring Lebron James’ philanthropic work, and Hillary Clinton made it a campaign stop during the 2016 election.

The East End project has won many awards including: Novogradac Journal of Tax Credits Historic Rehabilitation 2016 Historic Rehabilitation Award – Historic Development that Best Exemplifies Major Community Impact; Northeast Ohio Apartment Association, 2016 Property of the Year Award; NAIOP Northern Ohio, 2016 Mixed-Use Renovation of The Year Award; Cleveland Restoration Society/AIA Cleveland, 2016 Distinguished Adaptive Use Award; and State Historic Preservation Office Award, 2016 Preservation Merit. The project has also gained national media attention from The New York Times, The Wall Street Journal and Forbes Magazine.

McClellan Park

Built on the former McClellan Air Force Base in Sacramento, California, IRG is the developer of McClellan Park, a 3,000 acre site and multi-use business park with approximately 8.5 million square feet of commercial business, high technology, and aviation space. The base once supplied major logistical, repair and maintenance support on the West Coast for World War II, The Korean War, The Vietnam War and Operation Desert Shield/Storm. IRG purchased the facility in 2000 and has invested more than $200 million into revitalizing the site.

Approximately 230 companies moved to the park, including Northrop Grumman, J.C. Penney, California Department of Transportation, Cal Fire, The US Coast Guard, General Dynamics, and Americorp. These companies are associated with employment for approximately 15,000 individuals. McClellan now includes industrial/office space, air museum, chapel, dormitories, hotel, conference center, recreational facilities and an airport. The property also features premier amenities including a luxury hotel, a full runway, general aviation and commercial aircraft capabilities, and a wide array of hangers.

The primary infrastructure for McClellan was funded with more than $100 million in EB-5 investments which experienced full capital repayment. This funding went to sewer replacements and upgrades, environmental cleanup, rehabilitation of former military base structures, new construction, railroad upgrades, street rebuilding, flood control, and other new infrastructure construction and capital improvements. After millions of dollars in renovation and environmental remediation, McClellan Park is now widely considered the national gold-standard for large military base reuse.

Canal Place

Construction on this Akron, Ohio property began in 1871 as the site of Dr. B.F. Goodrich’s first rubber plant. By the end of World War II the site had grown to become the largest rubber factory in the world, encompassing over 90 buildings and 3 million sq. ft. of space. At its peak, the complex was a self-contained city with its own fire, police, and medical services and boasted the first telephone system in Akron.

By 1988, the property’s massive size, multistory layout, deferred maintenance, and obsolete infrastructure led Goodrich, as well as the mainstream development community, to conclude that this property was functionally obsolete. At a cost of $18 million, demolition was planned. Stuart Lichter and his partners could see what no one else envisioned and purchased the “brownfield” property with the goal of returning this historical, yet challenged, landmark to an economically vibrant part of the Akron community.

Canal Place now has a tenant base that includes Time Warner, Bank One, and Donna Karan.

  • IRG has leased over 2,550,000 sq. ft. of space.
  • IRG has created over 5,000 jobs.
  • Canal Place was the first private property development to win the prestigious Arthur D. Little Award for Excellence in Economic Development.
