Townhomes approved for development on 270 acres in Delaware, Ohio

DELAWARE, Ohio (WCMH) — Nearly 150 homes will be built as part of a Cleveland real estate company’s 270-acre development in Delaware.

Addison Properties plans to build a second round of housing inside the 273-acre Addison Farms development.

Addison Properties’ final plan to build a second round of housing inside the 273-acre Addison Farms development was approved by the Delaware Planning Commission on June 5. Once completed, 70 homes will sit in “Section 2” north of Merrick Avenue and near Smith. Park on Troy Road.


The 7.2-acre Section 2 will form part of the development’s ‘Subzone B’, which will also include the 76-home ‘Section 1’ which was approved for construction earlier this year. The two sections will come together to create a 146-unit residential neighborhood in Addison Farms.

“It’s such a great alternative option that doesn’t exist in Delaware,” Jason Friedman, CEO of Addison Properties, said during an earlier commission meeting. “High demand, high price in relation to the new houses that will be built. Just, really excited.”

In both sections, housing will be built in 12 six-unit buildings and one four-unit building. Friedman said the homes will be for sale, not rent, and will mark the only housing development planned for Addison Farms.

The two-story homes will be at least 1,200 square feet with a two-car garage. Section 2 will also include seven parking spaces and 3.14 acres of open green space, while Section 2 will comprise 30 scattered overflow spaces and 7.7 acres of green space.

Friedman’s Addison Farms will also include a “Four Seasons” subdivision, under construction, to include 49 single-family homes on 29 acres and 45 single-family homes on 11 acres. Other parts of Addison Farms include 139 single-family homes that will be built in two sections, with 73 homes on 17.25 acres and 66 homes on 17.78 acres.

The development will also include more than 280 apartment units in 45 single-story buildings. South of Addison Farms, Friedman also wants to build 72 single-family homes on 22 vacant acres in a development called “Rutherford Acres.”
