Commission to Weigh in on Design of Stadium-Adjacent Apartments
The Pizzuti Companies will present the latest plans for the residential portion of their Confluence Village development to the Downtown Commission next week.
The project, which calls for two five-story buildings that together will hold 449 apartments, will get an initial review from the board at its meeting on February 23.
In December, the developer presented plans for a five-story office building on the site that were generally well-received.
The proposed office building is located on the north side of Nationwide Boulevard – between the currently under-construction Crew Stadium and the Olentangy River – and the two proposed apartment buildings would sit just to the north of the office building. A city-owned parking garage that will serve the overall development has not yet been reviewed by the commission.
In addition to the apartment buildings and the office building, a future phase of the development will fill the portion of the property that sits to the north of the stadium.
An incentive package approved by City Council last year specified that 20% of the units in the development will be affordable to those making between 80 and 100% of the area’s average median income.
Also on the agenda for this month’s Downtown Commission are two proposals from the Edwards Companies – one to build a 13-story building on East Broad Street, and another to convert a covered, elevated walkway into an open air park.
