Highland Park, the reimagined City View Center in Garfield Heights, lands first industrial tenant
by Michelle Jarboe

A rendering shows the former Walmart store at City View Center, reimagined as an office and industrial building. The onetime shopping center, under new ownership, has been renamed Highland Park and is being pitched to corporate tenants.

Highland Park, the redevelopment of the former City View Center retail site in Garfield Heights, has landed its first new tenant - a growing business that makes packaging machinery for everything from cereal to craft beer.

Mpac Switchback recently inked a lease on 58,000 square feet of the former Walmart store near the northern end of the 75-acre site. The company, currently based in Richfield, is scheduled to move into its new offices and warehouse space in late spring or early summer.

Real estate developer Industrial Commercial Properties LLC acquired City View in mid-January, cleaning the slate for a property that spent more than a decade tied up in receivership and litigation. Workers have removed the ornamental facades from long-empty stores, installed exterior LED lighting and repaved the parking lot, where landscaping will fill the driving aisle where shoppers once pulled up to PetSmart, Jo-Ann and OfficeMax.

The Switchback deal is a major milestone for ICP, which has been marketing reimagined buildings to office tenants, light industrial users and technology firms.
