“We are thrilled to welcome Amazon and Seefried Industrial Properties to the City of Euclid,” said City of Euclid Mayor Kirsten Holzheimer Gail. “The Euclid Square Mall site has been a prime target of our redevelopment efforts. While some saw a vacant mall, we saw an opportunity for growth and development. This project is a fantastic addition to the investment we are seeing in our industrial corridor and will provide valuable employment opportunities for our residents. I truly appreciate the support and professionalism of Team NEO, Greater Cleveland Partnership, Cuyahoga County, the Ohio Department of Transportation, Euclid City Council and my administration for helping make this transformative project a reality.”
