The Grandview Mercantile building is one of the few large-footprint single-story structures located on High Street in the Short North, but that could be changing soon if a new development proposal is approved. The Pizzuti Companies have submitted a proposal to the Victorian Village Commission that aims to replace it with a new 12-story mixed-use building.

Plans for the building call for the construction of 41 condos on the upper floors, a 102-space parking garage with 40 spaces dedicated to retail customers, and 11,185 square feet of ground floor retail space, which would be dedicated to non-restaurant retail.

The existing 20,394 square foot building at 881 North High Street that currently houses Grandview Mercantile was originally constructed in 1945. Questions submitted to Grandview Mercantile about a business relocation have not yet been answered.

Pizzuti’s proposal will be reviewed during a special neighborhood meeting with the Short North Civic Association next Wednesday, June 8th at 6:30pm at The Joseph Hotel. Representatives from Pizzuti will be on hand to answer questions about the plans. The proposal will then be conceptually reviewed the following day at the June 9th Victorian Village Commission.

This proposal is not the first from Pizzuti in the Short North, who recently completed the 11-story Le Méridien Hotel, the six-story Joseph office building, a five-story attached parking garage, and The Pizzuti Collection contemporary art museum and gallery.

Representatives from Pizzuti were not available for comment as of the time of publishing, but additional information will be added to this story as updates are made available.

UPDATE — June 3rd 1:55pm — Renderings added to article.
