Sandstone Development is a PDD (Planned Development District) located in Amherst Township. It is approximately 264.23 acres and is located between SR58 and Oberlin Road, just south of the Ohio Turnpike.
The development consists of 4 different areas, developed off of a connector road tying together SR 58 to the west and Oberlin Road to the east, to be called “Sandstone Parkway”. Additionally running between SR 58 and Oberlin Road will be a walking trail, constructed to the south of Sandstone Parkway. This trail will tie all four (4) areas together, allowing for easy walkability between developments.
The first area contains about 54.3 acres. It will be commercially development and will be located off of Sandstone Parkway, nearest to SR 58.
The second area contains about 30 acres. It will be developed residentially as “Age-Targeted Rental Units” and will be located to the north of Sandstone Parkway. This area is proposed to contain 205 units and to be developed by Redwood Living, who will maintain all of the units as well as all of the roads, which will be privately owned.
The third area contains about 86 acres. It will be developed and subdivided into 263 “Age-Restricted” single family residential homes to be knows as Four Seasons at Sandstone by K. Hovnanian Homes. These homes will be owner occupied and marketed to the active adult. The roads in this area will be owned and maintained by the township but will have its own Home Owners Association. This association will have the responsibility to maintain all of the common ground as well as a club house and additional amenities.
The fourth remaining area contains about 62 acres. It will be developed and subdivided into 194 single family residential homes. This area will be called Sandstone Mill, and the builder will be Ryan Homes. The roads in this area will be owned and maintained by the township but will have its own Home Owners Association with the responsibility to maintain all common grounds.
The Developer is working with the Lorain County Metro Parks to include a Trail Head in the vicinity of SR58 and the Ohio Turnpike. This trail head will establish an area where bikers in the region can park and ride, either towards Amherst to the north or along a proposed all-purpose trail planned to be located along the “Lake Shore Railroad” which will connect Wellington to Amherst/Amherst Township.
To help traffic mobility and lessen the chance for traffic accidents, there are plans for a north-bound, left turn lane on Oberlin Road, as well as a turning lane and lights at SR 58.
