City View was the first major commercial development in Ohio to be built on top of a landfill. The project initially was meant to lure businesses to Garfield Heights.
We see how well that worked:
Meanwhile, Wal-Mart pulled out of the center, citing concerns about the safety of its employees and customers. PetSmart followed. Other tenants, including Jo-Ann Stores Inc. and Circuit City, also have closed during the past year. In December, the property’s owners told their lender that City View was not bringing in enough money to cover its expenses, and that City View Center LLC planned to close the shopping center.
It’s in receivership now. Personally, I never saw the point, given that nobody in Garfield Hts has any money, and all the stores were replicated no farther than 15 minutes away.
