Project Core put on hold

D.J. Bice

OTTAWA — Project Core, a plan for proposed development near the intersection of Champlain Street and Etna Road in Ottawa, has been put on hold.
Ottawa Mayor Bob Eschbach today identified the project as being led by Jim Schiefelbein and a group of investors. Schiefelbein is the founder of Clover Technologies, located on Dayton Road, and has since also located the Bone Collector in Ottawa.
“For some reason, the project fell through,” Eschbach said. “Someday it may be renewed.”
Schiefelbein could not be reached for comment by deadline. He had assembled a group of investors to acquire several out-of-state companies and move their operations to Ottawa, calling the plan Project Core.
“Jim Schiefelbein has a record of bringing an incredible amount of investment and a large number of jobs to our community,” Eschbach said. “The city of Ottawa looks forward to working with him in the future on this and other endeavors.”
