Fred Geis, developer of the Diamond Business Center in Glenwillow, tried to alleviate the concerns of Solon residents about the development. He said that the company will screen the industrial park from its residential neighbors and will attempt to place heavier industry away from residential areas.

Solon officials will meet with Mayor Payne of Glenwillow and a representative of developer Geis Companies with the hope of purchasing a portion of the Diamond Business Center industrial park that directly abuts Solon. "I doubt Geis will sell it, but we're going to ask," said a Solon councilman.

Some Solon residents are displeased by the start of construction of the Diamond Business Center industrial park in Glenwillow. They are concerned about tree removal, runoff, and noise and light pollution.

Construction of the new Diamond Business Center industrial park in Glenwillow will begin this week when work starts on a 400,000 square foot building. Developer Fred Geis described the 212 acre site as "the last large land tract that we know of in Cuyahoga County."

Geis Companies purchased 212 acres at Cochran and Pettibone Roads in Glenwillow from Browning-Ferris Industries for $4.3 million, where they plan to build an industrial park with a mix of industrial, office, and light manufacturing tenants.
