Bigg’s has signed a lease to build its eighth Greater Cincinnati store at the former El Rancho Rankin motel site on Beechmont Avenue, developers said Monday. Bigg’s will build a 68,000-square-foot store to anchor the site, which will be called Skytop Pavilion, said Mark Fallon of Mayerson-Anderson Development Co. The company is developing the site with a partnership called Skytop Properties.
The store will sell food only and construction should start this summer with the store opening late this year, Fallon said. Mayerson-Anderson has leveled the motel that stood on the site. Bigg’s operates seven stores in Greater Cincinnati, two in Louisville and one in Denver. It has been looking for a presence in the lucrative eastern side of Cincinnati.The store will fill about half the space in the new development. Fallon said other committed tenants include restaurants: Tumbleweed, Asian Buffet and Great Steak and Potato.
The El Rancho Rankin was founded in the 1940s by Rankin Harrison, who owned it until his death in 1995. The 106-room motel was known for its garish, giant plastic animals and green neon lighting.It was cited for violations of fire, health and building codes and condemned in mid-1996.Mayerson-Anderson is also developing an expansion of its successful Rookwood Pavilion development in Norwood. Called Rookwood Commons, it could include 300,000 square feet of retail space, slightly bigger than the existing shopping center, and 100,000 square feet of office space.
The developer still has to acquire more property, including some private homes, for the expansion, and probably won’t start construction until next year, Fallon said. He said tenants at Rookwood Commons would include upscale ‘lifestyle’ retailers.John T.
