Construction Projects Top CTW’s Growth Plans

CANFIELD, Ohio – CTW Development Corp. ended 2018 with several awards, plans for expansion and the start of construction projects scheduled for completion in 2019.

CTW, a commercial and residential development company formed in 1987 by Chuck Whitman, offers more than 1.5 million square feet of office and retail space and has developed more than 600 residential home sites in and around the Mahoning Valley.

The Canfield-based company completed the redevelopment of Tiffany Crossings in Boardman with construction of the stand-alone Dunkin’ Donuts. The project received an award from the Boardman Civic Association.

“Born and raised in the area, we invest in projects that will benefit the community and attract people to it,” Whitman says.

At Tiffany Crossings, CTW installed a digital sign to provide tenants with better visibility along U.S. Route 224 and the ability to advertise directly on the sign.

In Canfield, CTW is completing construction of a plaza at Raccoon Road and Route 224. Its first tenant is Do-Cut Sales & Service. Additional spaces are available, Whitman says.

Meanwhile, CTW is expanding its other developments across the Mahoning Valley. In November, the company broke ground on a 26,000-square-foot banquet center, Waypoint 4180, at CTW’s Westford Lifestyle Community in Canfield.

“Waypoint 4180 will be the premier venue for weddings, banquets, conferences, corporate meetings and everything in between,” says Nancy Sullivan, executive director of sales and marketing.

Overlooking Kennsington Golf Club, the 1,000-seat banquet center will include a grand ballroom, several breakout and theme rooms and a golf simulator. It will be attached to the Courtyard Marriott Youngstown-Canfield and open this summer.

The Courtyard Marriott has earned multiple accolades from Marriott International. The hotel, which is owned by CTW Development and managed by Radius Hospitality, received recognition in five categories, including the Platinum Circle Award. This award is given to those hotels who scored in the top 5% of all 1,063 Courtyard by Marriott hotels for overall guest satisfaction. Of those hotels, Courtyard Canfield is ranked fifth.

The hotel works with its neighboring property, Kennsington Golf Club & Grille, on luxury dining experiences and stay-and-play packages.

Last year, the golf course added a fleet of 2019 Elite Lithium E-Z-GO golf carts, complete with GPS, bag covers, sand bottles and custom comfort seats. The eco-friendly carts increase convenience and comfort for golfers, use less energy and produce zero emissions, Whitman notes.

On the agenda this year is expanding Kennsington Grille’s kitchen, says Hank Robinson, who recently was named general manager. Construction began Jan. 14 and is expected to take about a month to complete.
