Demolition of the former Medic Drug Store/Pick-N-Pay building at Noble and Glenwood roads in Cleveland Heights began March 29. The building had been empty for years. The demolition project was a collaboration between the City of Cleveland Heights and the Cuyahoga County Land Bank.

Mayor Ed Kelley said that once demolition is complete, “the city will issue a Request for Proposal to determine interest from developers. The city is interested in proposals that will serve the neighborhood and the community well.”

On April 12, the city issued Requests for Proposals (RFPs) for four city-owned properties. Links to the RFPs for new development on Euclid Heights Boulevard near Lee Road, at the intersection of Cedar and Coventry roads, on Noble Road near Greyton Road, and at the Turkey Ridge site on Edgehill Road can be found at
