Shopping Amenities

Belle Oaks at Richmond Road, a carefully curated marketplace, will replace the existing Richmond Town Square Mall and will offer local shops, restaurants and amenities selected specifically to cater to the needs of our residents.  Within the development, you may find local brew-pubs, restaurants, bakeries and specialty shops providing a unique one-of-a-kind living experience.  Coupled with these culinary options, Belle Oaks will also be home to many fine local retailers featuring clothing, accessories and home goods to enhance your living experience.  Additionally, Belle Oaks plans to also offer many additional amenities such as a beauty salon, barbershop, fitness center, grocery store and a newly renovated 20-screen theater complex!

What also makes Belle Oaks at Richmond Road unique among its peers, is its unsurpassed walkability to surrounding amenities including a best-in-area Candy Shop, two major-chain pharmacies, a Fedex-Kinkos, ethnic restaurants, churches, a hardware store, gas stations, automotive service facilities and additional stores, banks, shops and salons.

Best in Class Amenities

The Belle Oaks at Richmond Road living experience will further be enhanced by some of the best community amenities found in all of Ohio.  These enhancements will include a private, pet-friendly, 5-acre nature/hiking/jogging park, a 20,000 square foot community center and a Class A indoor, climate-controlled self-storage facility which will provide additional support for residents and retailers. No other development in Northeast Ohio can offer these amenities.

An Outstanding Central Location

Even as Belle Oaks at Richmond Road offers most of what one might need; all within walking distance – there will still be those occasions where one will want to travel beyond its borders.  Belle Oaks at Richmond Road, and Richmond Heights in general, are centrally located to an unparalleled number of retail shopping, dining, recreational, personal wellness offerings and logistics.

Richmond Heights is home to a best in class Hospital in University Hospitals – Richmond Heights, as well as numerous doctors, dentist and holistic practitioners’ offices. The City hosts three recreational parks featuring ball diamonds, a soccer field, tennis courts and a swimming pool, along with a Community Center housed in the city’s Kiwanis Lodge.  Richmond Heights has also its own branch of the Cuyahoga County Public Library, and a new, state-of-the-art facility is currently under construction attached to the City’s new high school and middle school (also under construction).

Additionally, Richmond Heights shares ownership of the Cuyahoga County Airport (Robert D. Shea Field) with two surrounding communities; although repair and terminal operations are in Richmond Heights and are only 5 minutes from Belle Oaks.  Robert D. Shea Field is home to the largest private plane repair facility in the United States. What’s more, if you are employed by University Hospitals, Swagelok, or Progressive Insurance, three of Northeast Ohio’s biggest employers, Belle Oaks at Richmond Road is less than 10 minutes away.  Eaton Corporation, another Cleveland Top 10 employer is less than 20 minutes away.

Richmond Road itself, is a State Route (OH-175) connecting North and South from Lake Erie to the outermost ring suburbs.
