Construction to Begin This Fall on New 10-Story Short North HotelJune 13, 2017 7:43 pm Walker Evans
Editor’s Note: A previous version of this story indicated there would be no parking in the building at 800 North High Street. It has been fixed to include the building’s parking information.
Final plans for the new 10-story Moxy Hotel building were unveiled this afternoon, which will replace the former Haiku restaurant building at 800 North High Street. Local developers Crawford Hoying first unveiled the plans last September for the new building, and worked through various iterations to get to the final version.
“We are excited to contribute to a place like the Short North,” stated Crawford Hoying President Brent Crawford. “With the diversity of people and businesses, we are eager to elevate the experience for those who love the area as much as we do.”
Once constructed, the new building will house a 7,000 square foot ground-floor restaurant space, a hotel lobby on the second floor of the building, 45,000 square feet of Class A office on floors three through five, the hotel rooms on floors six through nine, and a second restaurant with a roof-top bar on the 10th floor.
Parking is 100 percent valet with room for 144 vehicles to be parked within the building. A U-shaped valet drop off area is located in the rear of the building with access off of Pearl Alley. Vehicles will be stored on one underground level and portions of the second floor, and vehicle lifts will be utilized to maximize efficiency. This allows for a building design with parking that is largely hidden from pedestrian view.
The new Short North Parking Ordinance requires 189 spaces for the building, leaving them 45 spaces short. Per the ordinance, they’ll pay a fee of $10,000 per space, or $450,000 total. That money will fund efforts to mitigate parking and transportation issues in the Short North.
The project has already received final approval from the Italian Village Commission, construction is slated to begin this Fall, and a completion timeframe is scheduled for Spring 2019.
“After reviewing the concept, we knew 800 North High would offer a new mix of uses in the corridor, contributing further vibrancy to the Short North,” stated Italian Village Commission Chair Jason Sudy. “Crawford Hoying was very collaborative in working with the Commission while taking this project from paper to life.”
