AVON, Ohio — More retail is coming to Avon, as Starbucks, Chipotle and Noodles & Company (all with drive-thrus) are listed as proposed tenants at the new retail complex, Nagel Crossing.
The shopping center is off Nagel Road in front of the Residence Inn by Marriott, near the Cleveland Clinic Richard E. Jacobs Health Center across from GetGo.
According to information on the Goodman Real Estate Services Group website (the leasing agent), Nagel Crossing features seven retail spaces, averaging approximately 2,300 square feet each. A proposed hotel is also on the site map.

A majority of Noodles & Company locations in Ohio are in the Columbus area. For more information on the chain, go to noodles.com.
I reached out to Steve Altemare, senior vice president at Goodman Real Estate, via email for more information. He was unable to provide comments at this time regarding the project, but did note that it’s “still in the planning stages.”
He asked that I check back in a few weeks. Stay tuned.
