Developer to pay for Paragon Salon move
CINCINNATI (WKRC) -- The developer of the project planned for the corner of Fourth and Race Streets pledges to take on the cost of moving the Paragon Salon. This as the salon's owners said they were prepared to take legal action against the city of Cincinnati.
Paragon Salon is currently located inside a downtown building at Fourth and Race Streets. The city has plans to redevelop the property and create apartments and a grocery store.
Paragon salon's owner has disagreed with city leaders recently over whether the salon should relocate and who should cover the relocation costs. Mayor John Cranley has said the city won't put up any more money for the project.
The developer Flaherty & Collins tells the Business Courier it will take on the cost of moving Paragon, even though it's not their obligation. Flaherty hasn't contacted the salon's owners. Earlier today the attorney for Paragon had said, "Paragon has had enough it needs to take care of its business and stay here through the end of the lease, that's what we have a legal right to do and that's what we intend to do. If we're going to stay, as the mayor has said we're going to, then the city has to be a responsible landlord."
The city of Cincinnati has yet to respond to Flaherty's commitment to pay for Paragon's costs.
