250 New Apartments Could Be on Tap for Harrison West
More apartments could be coming soon to the western edge of Harrison West. Developer Michael Schiff of Schiff Property Group is in contract to buy the seven-acre Superior Beverage site at 871 Ingleside Street.
Schiff told Columbus Underground that he is working with Scott Pickett to acquire the parcel, which sits at the western edge of Buttles Avenue. Schiff and Pickett were also partners in Trotters Park, a 144-unit apartment complex built on 3.4 acres at the southeast corner of Buttles and Michigan Avenue.
Although Schiff said that it is “still very early” in the process, the plan is to build between 250 and 280 units on what he called “a magnificent site” adjacent to the Olentangy River. He added that while most of the units would be rentals, a portion could also be for-sale condos.
Development activity in this particular corner of the neighborhood shows no sign of slowing. Just south of the Superior Beverage site, a proposal to build six one-story storage buildings at 555 Buttles Avenue was recently taken to the Harrison West Society. Also heard by the neighborhood group was a proposal to build 33 for-sale townhomes on the site of the APCO Siding Company building at 815 Michigan Avenue.
