The landscape on Hyland-Croy Road in Dublin could change soon.

A mixed-use development has been proposed for the 60-acre site where Jacquemin Farms sits.

The Schottenstein Real Estate Group took a proposal to Jerome Township trustees last week for a mixture of residential, retail and an assisted-living facility on the west side of Hyland-Croy Road, north of Post Road.

"We are excited about working with Jerome Township and our co-applicants, the Jacquemin family, who will continue to operate their business, while they create a brand-new market for all of the Jerome- and Dublin-area residents to enjoy as part of this development," Brian Schottenstein, COO and senior vice president of the Schottenstein Real Estate Group, said in a statement.

According to Schottenstein, requests have included bringing a rental community to the area.

One-, two- and three-bedroom town homes with garages are planned. Sullivan Bruck architects, OHM Advisors, EMHT engineers, and Carpenter Marty Transportation traffic engineers are working on the development, Schottenstein said.

Retail also is planned that will keep the Jacquemin farmers market at the site, along with an opportunity to keep strawberry picking, Schottenstein said.

"This Jerome mixed-use development will consist of the new Jacquemin family farmers market, neighborhood retail, medium-density residential, along with an assisted-living care facility, which will provide a much-needed and the ideal land use for this area," he said.

Traffic concerns have come up, but Schottenstein said he's willing to work with surrounding municipalities on solutions.

"This important 60-acre parcel is adjacent to (U.S. Route) 33 and commercial property to the south," he said. "We are committed to developing a very unique and special corridor that will produce revenue to be used to benefit the public roadways and entire area in so many ways."
