Homes to sit on Taylor Chair site

BEDFORD - A 53-unit housing project with a scenic view of the Bedford Reservation of the Cleveland Metroparks will become a reality.

The project will be on Taylor and Willis streets at the current site of the Taylor Chair Co., which will relocate to Egbert Road in Bedford.

"The setting is the best thing about the entire project," said Rob Namy, director of development for the Cleveland-based Rysar Co.

"It is nestled in a corner of the Metroparks with paths that reach out to the waterfalls and to Viaduct Park," he said. "It will be close to downtown Bedford and all the shops."

Namy and architect Richard Siegfried of R.S.A. Architects in Chagrin Falls made a presentation to Bedford City Council.

The plan must be OK'd by the city's planning commission and council, but city leaders do not foresee any hurdles.

He said as many silver maple, red oak and pine trees on the east side of the property as possible will not be touched.

Rysar paid about $900,000 for the property in July.

Namy said homes likely will start at about $190,000. He hopes construction will begin in late 2006 with the first homes finished in late spring of 2007. Each one will be about 1,500-2,000 square feet.
