Final piece OK’d for Colliers Way development
WEIRTON — Plans are moving forward for the final portion of property within one of the community’s more active business developments.
The Weirton Planning Commission Wednesday gave its blessing to a proposal from Altair Development for Lot 6 of the Village at Colliers Way.
Mike Chek, co-owner of Altair Development, noted the subdivision plans have been gone before all of the necessary city departments for review.
“We have to separate out this area we are developing for our Phase 3,” Chek said.
According to Chek, Altair Development is working with a company from Ohio to construct an 86-bed assisted living facility at the far end of the Village, which is located just off of U.S. Route 22.
The building will be 70,000 square feet, according to Chek, and feature 70 regular beds and 16 memory care beds.
“It will be soup to nuts, with everything they need,” Chek said.
The property is the final piece of the 41.48 acres which make up the Village development.
“The rest of what we own is not really developable,” Chek said.
Planning Commission Vice Chair Nathan Mazur thanked Chek for the work Altair Development has been doing to bring business development to the city, noting the number of businesses which have located in the Village since it began.
“It’s a fantastic addition to the city of Weirton,” Mazur said.
Jessica Gumm, director of planning and development for the city, noted the proposal complies with all requests from city departments.
Plans for the development have been under way for well over a decade, with the first component, a gas station and convenience store opening its doors in 2010. It now includes several medical offices, restaurants, a hair salon and other professional operations.
In addition to Chek, Altair Development is owned by Mike Heilman.
