It sits on the only remaining corner yet to be developed — or committed to a plan — at the interchange that includes Austin Landing.
In 2009, Clivus Development LLC had an agreement to bring a proton therapy center projected to bring hundreds of jobs and be worth in excess of $100 million to the area.
That agreement expired in June 2015 without plans being submitted. Pollock has said targeting users may be a three- to five-year project, but may be completed sooner.

The land includes a retention basin, and officials said not all of it can be developed. At this point, 21 acres is penciled in for office use and 4 acres for retail, Pollock told township officials last week.
The township’s “local assets and regional assets in southwest Ohio” are among the selling points Pollock said his firm is promoting about the property. These include Dayton-Wright Brothers Airport, Wright-Patterson Air Force Base and its relative close proximity to major population centers.
Initial electronic marketing efforts will include hundreds of site selectors, developers and commercial real estate brokers.
“So we’re going to be doing a fairly aggressive marketing campaign to not only regional but national site selectors, corporations and also (the) real estate brokerage community to get this site on their radar,” Pollock said, “and to attract corporations, health care users onto the site as well.”
