New Five Story 101-Unit Apartment Building Proposed for Victorian Village
A new 101-unit 100,000 square foot five-story apartment building is being proposed for development on a large 1.2 acre surface lot in a rapidly changing section of Victorian Village. Borror Properties is proposing the construction of two connected buildings at 991 Dennison Avenue, located between Second and Third Avenues just south of the Specialty Select Hospital Center.
“We’re very excited about this project, but it’s very, very preliminary at this point,” explained Jeff Baur, Executive Vice President of Borror. “We’re looking forward to what the Victorian Village Commission has to say on the project.”
The southern portion of the site would contain the five-story building while a four-story building would sit on the north side. A two-story lobby and meeting room area would connect the two buildings in the middle. Most of the ground floor would be devoted to parking garage space to accommodate 109 vehicles with access from the back (west) side of the building from Ewing Alley. A small section on the north end of the property would remain empty for now with a future addition possible, but not yet planned.
The proposed unit mix of the building is slated to include 30 efficiencies, 59 one-bedrooms and 12 two-bedrooms.
The proposed development site sits diagonally across Dennison from Aston Place and Aston Row, which are both currently under construction and adding a combined 69 residential units to the neighborhood. Borror has also recently proposed a new 24-unit four-story building in Italian Village.
“We’re excited about this whole area — from Downtown to the Short North,” added Baur. “Finding an empty 1.2 acre site is very unique and attractive to us.”
The application, siteplan, drawings and photos have been submitted for review to the Victorian Village Commission, which will discuss the proposal at this Thursday’s meeting.
