Racetrac, fire training tower lead city building


A new 25th  Street fuel distribution center by Racetrac Petroleum, upgrades at the Keith Street Walmart, and the city of Cleveland's construction of a new fire training tower are the top items on Jaunuary's building permits issued by the Cleveland Planning Office.

Racetrac, with headquarters in Atlanta, is in the midst of a relocation of a Raceway convenience store on 25th Street, on the site of the old Raceway store for 24-hour service to local and interstate consumers.

Preliminary clearing and upgrades for the location are nearing completion, and large fuel storage tanks have been placed on site.

The corporation has been issued a $900,000 building permit for the store and a second, $130,000 permit, for construction of a canopy covering the location.

Racetrac paid a $2,600 fee for the larger permit, and $590 for the canopy permit.

J.C. Curtis Construction Company of Chattanooga is the contractor for the project expected to be complete in June.

The city's construction of the fire training tower is virtually finished. Steve Williams Construction Company has the bid for the work at 3059 Fulbright Road, valued at $60,000.

The fire tower is something Fire Chief Ron Harrison has long urged for the Cleveland Fire Department.

Three commercial building permits issued in January totaled $1,090,000 – the two for Racetrac, and one to the city.

There were 12 permits for alterations and/or additions for $512,000. The 31 permits for residential development were valued at $3,898,400.

Walmart's renovation plan at 4495 Keith St., is primarily the store's plan for a grocery pick-up area. The project is valued at $80,000, and Rick Shipman Construction has the contract for the work.

Other permits for additions and/or additions:

• Andre' Richardson is making renovations to the Tea & Coffee Shop at 1122 Wildwood Ave., a $4,000 project.

• Curtis Construction is adding a bathroom for the Church of God at 140 Wildwood Ave., expected to cost $11,000.

• Ronald Barker received a permit for the addition of walls at 4000 Keith St., the job valued at $45,000.

• Robert Roberts is getting a structure evaluation for property at 2850 Westside Drive.

• Joe Pesterfield has a $35,000 contract for alterations to the Center for Sports Medicine at 2400 North Ocoee, the work valued at $35,000.

Residential building permits were the most plentiful, as developers are getting prepared for spring construction.

Projects include single-family homes, four-unit apartments, townhomes, duplexes and triplexes.

Developers include Pratt and Associates, Greg Calfee Builders, Ron Renner Construction, Brett Witte, Triple E. Construction Company, Cornerstone Constructions, Dennis Epperson, and Habitat for Humanity.

Locations are Timber Creek Road, Southern Heights Circle, Cottage Stone Lane, 11th Street S.E., 22nd Street N.W., Stone Creek Trail, Franitza Way, Springhouse Road N.E.,Tasso Lane N.E., and Morrison Lane N.E. 

There were also a number of land disturbance fees, totaling $794.
