A ribbon-cutting ceremony celebrated the opening of the first completed cluster home in Pepper Pike’s newest residential community, Edgewood Trace, on July 11. Developed by The Orlean Co., Edgewood Trace is off of Cedar Road, between Brainard Road and Lander Road, east of Windy Hill Drive.
The Orlean Co. principal David B. Orlean, COO Kenneth S. Lurie and vice president Cameron S. Orlean welcomed about 100 visitors to an open house of the first completed unit, and cut the ribbon with the help of Pepper Pike Mayor Richard Bain. David Orlean and Lurie grew up together on Edgewood Road in Beachwood, and created Edgewood Trace as homage to their childhood homes.
“We’re very excited to see this development come to fruition,” Bain told the Cleveland Jewish News. “They’ve done a wonderful job. It’s every bit the quality we hope to see in Pepper Pike. It’s a wonderful addition to our community and it’s going to provide a great option for people who want to live in Pepper Pike and don’t want to have a 1-acre lot, but still want to have a beautiful home and this address. So this works for everybody.”
David Orlean also said it was exciting to be able to cut the ribbon on the development.
“We’ve put a lot of hard work and effort into making it happen,” he said.
David Orlean, Cameron Orlean and Lurie also all praised the city of Pepper Pike.
“It took a lot of people to envision all of this, working with the city,” Lurie said. “(Pepper Pike) was pretty strict on design guidelines, but it’s all for the better.”
“Mayor Bain and his staff have been wonderful to work with, they’ve really helped move this project along,” Cameron Orlean said. “The city of Pepper Pike is a great place to develop in.”
