First & Main, Hudson, Ohio

Regularly voted one of northeastern Ohio’s most attractive and livable suburban communities, the city of Hudson is home to the Western Reserve stylings of the mixed-use development of First & Main.

Hudson has traditionally been a popular exurban community for the affluent of Cleveland and Akron. Its town square, historic Main Street shopping district, two-lane tree-lined streets, and high quality school system make it a strong draw for residents. The city was the original home of Cleveland’s Case Western Reserve University and is still home to Western Reserve Academy. One drawback of Hudson’s strong appeal to homeowners is its tendency to be perceived as primarily a bedroom community.

The opening of First & Main in 2004 was an attempt to solidify and enhance Hudson’s traditional commercial core, and to offer greater opportunities to its residents. The development encompasses eight small city blocks along the western flank of Hudson’s Main Street, Route 91. Its entire frontage along Main Street consists of the restored and maintained retail edifices of years past. As one moves westward to First Street and then to Library Street, the development unfolds to new structures designed in a small town Western Reserve vernacular — brick and lapboard exteriors, painted wood trims, a scattering of sloped shingled roofs, multipane windows and doors, and a sprinkling of late Colonial embellishments and detailing.

First & Main’s mix of uses includes a Village Green, a new central Hudson Library, several parking garages, a new Heinen’s Village Market, and eventual development of townhomes and other peripheral structures. Retail offerings are heavily slanted to restaurants and specialty stores, with women’s and children’s apparel well represented. Retail names that appear at First & Main include Ann Taylor Loft, Chico’s, Coldwater Creek, Talbot’s and Gymboree, while its restaurants and cafes include Caribou Coffee, Cold Stone Creamery, Vue, D'Agnese’s Tomato Grill, and Aladdin’s Eatery.
