Lane Avenue Development Proposal Grows to Nine Stories
A seven-story building proposal in Upper Arlington is getting a bit of a revision from the original plan unveiled in 2016. The project’s developers are bringing the updated plan back to the community’s Building and Zoning commission to review an expansion that would take the building up to nine stories in height in order to accomodate new tenant needs.
“Applicant has been negotiating with a national, publicly traded financial institution as a prospective tenant which necessitates modifications to the building and the approved Final Development Plan,” states the revised application, submitted by Arcadia Development. “The prospective tenant requires approximately 60,000 sq. ft. (3+ floors) of Class A office space.”
Those changes are bringing the building’s total amount of office space to 80,000 square feet, up from the originally planned 18,500 square feet. Additionally, more structured parking will go into the building, ramping up the number of parking spots from 275 to 367.
The changes to the building’s layout will also affect the residential configuration of the building. Originally, the developer planned to house 26 apartments and 59 condos. Now, the plan for apartments has been scrapped entirely, and the number of condos has risen to 66 units, ranging from studios to three bedroom layouts.
The building is also slated to include 11,883 square feet of ground floor retail and restaurant space.
The Upper Arlington Board of Zoning and Planning is scheduled to meet on September 18th and review the plans for the proposed 127-foot building, which if built, would be located at 1325-1359 Lane Avenue, replacing two existing two-story buildings.
