Revitalizing East Akron
In 2004, EANDC transformed a brownfields site at the corner of Exchange and Arlington into Middlebury Marketplace, bringing a full-service Dave’s Supermarket to an urban area that had lacked access to fresh produce.
Middlebury Marketplace includes several neighborhood amenity businesses, and the most recent addition is a clinic operated by Akron Children’s Hospital. More than 160 jobs have been created through this single development
EANDC works to strengthen East Akron by bringing new investments in housing and commercial development to the neighborhood. We address the problem of vacant land by implementing the East Akron Neighborhood Revitalization Plan.
We also work to build a sense of community in East Akron by sponsoring neighborhood events and opportunities.
