Coffee, ice cream, candied yams and beer.

It’s all slated to come to the new East End development in Akron, east of the city’s downtown.

On Thursday, East End owner Industrial Realty Group said Starbucks, Handel’s Homemade Ice Cream & Yogurt, and Marques restaurant are coming to the East End, a 1.4-million-square-foot, mixed-use redevelopment of the former world headquarters campus of Goodyear Tire & Rubber Co.

These, together with a planned brewery, are the first retail establishments that East End has landed.

Marques, which will offer southern eats including candied yams, has signed a long-term lease in the historic Goodyear Hall on East Market Street.

It is scheduled to open early next year, IRG said.

Marcus Harris is behind the venture, which will be a sister operation to his Marques eatery in downtown Canton.

“The historic space at the East End will provide the warm environment I want to create for my customers, in the town where I grew up,” Harris said in a prepared statement.

Goodyear Hall is home to live music venue Goodyear Theater.

The Starbucks and Handel’s, meanwhile, will be in a three-tenant strip center that will be built by IRG at East Market and Cook streets, adjacent to Goodyear Hall and the Hilton Garden Inn.

Construction is to begin this week, and the center is expected to be completed by the first quarter of 2019.

“This is our second store in Akron and our company began in Ohio, so it’s exciting to be part of this growing community,” said Leonard Fisher, the Handel’s franchisee who will open the new site.

Handel’s is based in Canfield, outside Youngstown.

The remaining 2,190 square feet is available for lease in the strip center.

The news about the new East End tenants follows the announcement that Eighty-Three Brewery, a production brewery, tasting room and eatery, plans to open next year at Goodyear Hall.

Chris Surak, an Akron homebrewer, and his wife, Stephanie, are behind this venture. The Suraks are in the early stages of the project.

They revealed the brewery plans on social media last week.

East End so far includes the Hilton Garden Inn, apartments, Goodyear Theater and headquarter offices for SummaCare, the Akron-based health insurer.

SummaCare, with 250 employees, is the development’s largest tenant.

East End is a joint venture between Los Angeles-based Industrial Realty Group and Industrial Commercial Properties, headquartered in Solon.

Industrial Realty Group, headed by Stu Lichter, owns numerous old industrial and commercial properties, including the onetime manufacturing and headquarters complex of the former Hoover Co. in North Canton.
