Seven Story Mixed Use Development Proposed for Lane Avenue in Upper Arlington
A new proposal for a seven-story building on Lane Avenue in Upper Arlington calls for 42 apartments and 38 condominiums on top of ground-floor retail and second-floor office space. An attached five-and-a-half story parking garage would fit 277 cars.
The new development, dubbed Arlington Gateway, would replace the building that currently holds Darrons Contemporary Furniture as well as the retail strip center immediately to its west. The existing Half Price Books store is not part of the proposal and would remain.
The proposal was presented to the Upper Arlington Board of Zoning and Planning at their February 1st Work Session – an informal meeting designed for general feedback before an applicant files a formal application.
Developer Scott Patton (who recently has been working on a plan to redevelop a half-acre parcel in German Village) and Don Brogan of M+A Architects presented the concept. Patton has not yet responded to a request for comment at the time of publishing.
Upper Arlington Planning Officer Justin Milam said that the board expressed concerns about the scale, height and density of the proposal, so significant changes could be made to the project before it is brought back to the board.
