Real Estate Development

The City of Akron’s Development Division sells commercial and residential land for development. The Development Division solicits proposals from private and nonprofit organizations for City owned land in targeted areas in accordance with development standards (provided within each Request for Proposal or RFP). Industrial Zoned land is available in each of our industrial parks.   

Active Request for Proposals (RFPs) 

Our RFPs are announced via press release, listed below, advertised on CoStar for a period of 1-3 months. 

There are no active real estate RFPs currently. 

Industrial Parks 
One of Akron’s primary goals is to assist businesses looking to expand or relocate. To facilitate this effort, the City of Akron has established an ongoing program to purchase available land and develop fully improved industrial park sites. The City makes this land available in lots of two acres or more for manufacturing or related industrial development through sale or capitalized ground lease arrangements. Presently, the City offers sites for business development in four industrial parks.
