West Bay Plaza

Our adaptive strategy is exemplified in the recent redevelopment of West Bay Plaza, a 158,000SF retail property located in Westlake, Ohio, an affluent suburb of Cleveland. Situated in close proximity to Crocker Park, a mixed-use center with over 1MSF of retail, residential, and office space, as well as the American Greetings headquarters, West Bay Plaza benefits from high daytime populations and a regional draw of 229,000 people with average household incomes exceeding $100,000.

The center was formerly anchored by Kmart and Marc’s, a local grocer, with the balance of the center housing shop tenants. With the recapture of the Kmart space and subsequent expiration of the Marc’s lease, West Bay Plaza became a prime opportunity for redevelopment given its direct visibility and exposure to I-90 and positioning central to a bustling retail node. Staggered lease expirations made way for a staged redevelopment, the first phase of which opened in 2018 and included a complete scrape and rebuild of the former Kmart building. Phase I tenants included Fresh Thyme, ULTA, and the first HomeSense location in the state of Ohio.

SITE Centers has now recovered possession from Marc’s and is in the process of securing final tenants for the last phase of the redevelopment.
