    I’m sure it’s way cheaper to buy a house and build surface parking than to create a parking garage.

    There’s already a parking garage as part of this development, so a lot of the cost is already invested. Depending on what they’re paying for those houses, the demo, etc….it may be pretty close.

    Rule of thumb: 2k for a surface spot and 20k for garage spots.

    60 additional surface spots = 120k + two houses at probably approx 250k/ea = 620k + additional property taxes

    Vs

    60 garage spots x 20k = 1.2 million minus already realized cost of the garage since they are already building one

    It might be pretty close.

    Okay. Didn’t see a garage in the plans.

    I believe the garage is supposed to be on the southside of the street behind the existing development.. if that’s the case with the hotel being on the northside and the garage being about 100/200 yards away I can see why they would need more surface parking.. and the neighborhood on that side is more stereotypical UA as well which may also factor into why they will not make the garage bigger.. the northside of this development has much cheaper land value

    Good morning,

    In follow up to our May 18 message below, the developers have asked that we forward on some additional insight to you on their behalf, as follows:

    1 – These proposed changes are still preliminary in nature and are being proposed to help address neighborhood concerns regarding the need for additional parking.

    2 – The proposed additional parking areas would incorporate the extensive landscaping and fencing buffer developed with neighborhood input and supported by BZAP last year. We will continue to utilize fully shielded parking area light fixtures to eliminate light tresspass on the adjacent properties.

    3 – The proposed traffic calming revisions on Wellesley, including the location and configuration of the drive on Wellesley are still being developed. The Developer stands ready to work with City Engineering and the residents on the final design and location.

    We are looking forward to working with our neighbors and the City to try to make the proposed project even better! We will move forward with site clearing in coming weeks per the Development Plan approved by BZAP and City Council last year and will incorporate these additional changes during the project if the necessary approvals are granted for these changes.

    Best Regards,

    Nelson G. Yoder, MBA, AIA, NCARB, LEED-AP

    The hotel project is well underway. The buildings are gone and the site is crawling with workers.

    Agree. It’s pretty late for residents to complain. There were several meetings held earlier where residents were asked to voice concern if they had any.

    Will Upper Arlington Vote On Wet/Dry Issue?
    By: RICK REITZEL | NBC4
    Published: August 13, 2012

    The Lane Avenue Community Entertainment District is shaping up with construction in full-swing. The Lane Avenue Baptist Church was demolished and developers plan new businesses, some needing liquor permits. The problem is that the church site is dry and now the city may be asking residents to vote in November on allowing alcohol sales in the whole district. That potential vote concerns several established businesses that already have liquor permits. They worry that the issue might be rejected, making the whole district dry, and they could lose their current liquor permits.

    Good grief….I would hope UA residents would vote to allow this area to be fully wet. I personally have not noticed too many bar fights, stabbings, or robberies due to unruly Rusty Bucket or Piada customers!

    Maybe the city can put out a survey to determine the likelihood that a wet entertainment district would pass?

    Upper Arlington Voters To Decide On Liquor Sales Along Lane Avenue
    By: DENISE YOST | NBC4
    Published: September 05, 2012

    Upper Arlington voters will decide if businesses in the city’s entertainment district will be able to serve liquor. At a meeting Tuesday night, Upper Arlington City Council did not object to an issue on the November ballot which will decide if the Lane Avenue businesses will have to go dry. A no vote would mean that new businesses could not serve liquor, and 11 existing businesses that already have liquor licenses would lose them.

    What a terrible idea. Imagine going to a nice restaurant and not being able to have a glass of wine. Dumb.

    I can’t imagine it won’t pass. If UA residents really think people go to the Rusty Bucket or the Wine Bistro to get smashed, they have no clue.
