Richmond Heights officials on Monday night passed the first reading of five bills related to approving a hotel plus mixed use — the Crossing at Richmond Heights — to be built on 6.4 acres at Highway 64/40, South Hanley Road, Dale Avenue and The Heights. Summit Development Group president, Scott Reese, said after meeting the five-story Courtyard Marriott is the only piece that’s determined; they’re negotiating with retailers and restaurants. The 16,000 square feet of retail will be geared toward business travelers. He said they hope to close on the property in January and start construction in mid-February. The retail is set to open in fall 2017, the hotel in spring 2018.
