If IRG fails to do so, the lawsuit will proceed, which would almost certainly mean the Hoover building being seized by IRG's creditors, as well as any other assets Maple Street Commerce might have (likely $0). The creditor that issued the original loan and brought the fraud lawsuit is CMB Regional Centers. They have expressed interest in finishing the Hoover Project themselves if IRG/Maple/Lichter can't, but it's far from clear that they'd be legally obligated to do so.

This sounds like a lose-lose proposition for North Canton. If IRG obtains another loan, they still have to pay the original creditor. They'll still be just as deep in the red, with little or no money to complete the project. If CMB seizes the Hoover complex, then it's totally up in the air what happens next. They say they want it in receivership so it can be finished, but how long it would take (or if it would happen at all) is not certain.
Enter also the owed money to the City of Akron for the GoodYear project. The Hall of Fame village project is in grave jeopardy of never being completed.

9.3 million is owed to the steel manufacturer before the steel for the East Endzone is released for Benson Stadium.

I'm with you on the North Canton deal if it is seized or not completed then the Hall of fame village project will be halted as well then if it resumes it may be up to 2 years before it is restarted.

My cousin is one of the contractors at the Hall of Fame village project his company is owed 2.7 million. I am very much in tune with this project.
