Plans approved for Boardman plaza landscaping

With all the work going on near U.S. Route 224 and Interstate 680 in Boardman, those driving through that area soon will be seeing some other renovations taking place at a nearby shopping plaza.

As was first reported last week, developers want to give a significant makeover to the Tiffany Square shopping center. On Thursday afternoon, Boardman Township’s Site Review Committee gave its approval to plans to update the plaza’s landscaping, which will include adding hundreds of new trees, shrubbery and other green space.

Construction crews already started removing some of the old façade from the now-closed Value City department store in the Tiffany Square plaza. It was announced last week that a Good Cents store, a subsidiary of Giant Eagle, planned to take over the space.

However, Giant Eagle spokesperson Daniel Donovan denied those plans via email on Wednesday.

“We are continually evaluating opportunities to expand all of our banners, but we have no current plans to open a new store in the Youngstown area,” the email read.

The township zoning department said no permit applications have been filed by the Pittsburgh-based corporation.

Developers said last week three segments of the property will be parceled out for individual businesses, like banks or restaurants.
