After a year of unsuccessful negotiations, the developer seeking to reconstruct the Golden Bear Shopping Center says he now intends to abide by Upper Arlington officials’ demands to include 26,000 square feet of office space in the project.

Scott Patton, Arcadia Development of Ohio LLC managing partner, said Jan. 29 he is ready to transform the 55-year-old shopping center on the southeast corner of Fishinger Road and U.S. Route 33/Riverside Drive on the city’s terms.

The change comes after Upper Arlington senior planner Justin Milam informed Patton by letter Jan. 29 that the city’s Board of Zoning and Planning Commission would not review his proposal to redevelop the center into a five-story mixed-use building with 10,000 square feet of office space until at least June 16.
