Klutch Cannabis wants to relocate its headquarters to White Pond Drive – Akron Beacon Journal

An Akron-based medical marijuana company wants to buy 2.6 acres from the city to construct not only a new drive-thru dispensary and headquarters, but also additional retail buildings that would be available for rent on the Wallhaven property.

Klutch Cannabis is proposing purchase of the 2.6-acre lot at the vacant corner of White Pond Drive and Naify Boulevard, just south of Sikich LLP and opposite the FirstEnergy West Akron Campus.

The property is adjacent to the 68 acres the city sold last year for luxury housing off White Pond Drive. That decision was controversial, as many in the neighborhood wanted the land preserved as green space.
