The Chinese development firm Dashing Pacific completed the purchase of 69 acres of Marina District property on July 1, marking the first major milestone in the development of the East Toledo property.

The $3.8 million purchase agreement includes additional options for Dashing Pacific to purchase and develop more land in the 127-acre Marina District. Dashing Pacific already owns The Docks restaurant complex near International Park.

Northwood Mayor Mark Stoner has proposed an Advanced Life Support (ALS) system in the city that promises 24-7 coverage by a paramedic in the volunteer fire department.

Stoner made the proposal at a council meeting last week.

Currently, there is no such guarantee that a paramedic will respond to EMS calls in the city.

Northwood’s former fire and Emergency Medical Service (EMS) medical director had concerns for years about whether the Northwood Fire Department met the “standard of care.”

Dr. David Miramontes, who was Northwood’s EMS medical director for nearly 10 years before taking a job as the full-time EMS director in Washington, D.C., last month, told The Press he spoke to former Fire Chief Tim Romstadt in the past about problems he saw in the fire department.

Chinese developers broke ground on the Marina District Saturday morning with investors Wu King Hung and Yuan Xiaohong of the firm Dashing Pacific Group in attendance.

East Toledo District 3 councilman Mike Craig expected the sale to the developers of 69 acres of Marina District property for $3.8 million to have closed late last week before the groundbreaking. The sales contract is to include options for the Chinese to purchase more property in the 127-acre Marina District.
