CLEVELAND – Dec. 18, 2012 – Jacobs Real Estate Services announced today that it represented the property owner in the sale of 47 acres of land in Mentor, Ohio, to the Cleveland Clinic for $7.6 million. The property is located at the intersection of Interstate 90 and State Route 615. The deal closed on Dec. 14, 2012.

“At this time, we have no immediate plans for the land. We anticipate that we will begin discussions in 2013 to determine what possibilities we’d like to consider,” said a Cleveland Clinic spokesperson. According to Ron Traub, Mentor’s director of economic and community development, the Clinic had approached the city with a proposal to rezone the land to accommodate a medical campus.

Easy highway access and the recently built Norton Parkway make Newell Creek an ideal location for businesses. Avery Dennison, an international conglomerate known by consumers for its paper products, and CT Consultants, an engineering and architecture firm, have offices in the development.

An additional 24 acres adjacent to the Clinic’s newly purchased property are available for sale for office and medical-related uses.
