First Phase of “The Reach on Goodale” Residences Unveiled
Construction officially broke ground on the new White Castle headquarters building in May, but the second phase of the larger project known as “The Reach on Goodale” is already moving forward. Local firm Architectural Alliance presented plans for the first three residential buildings on the site to the Downtown Commission this morning, seeking input on the design.
“This phase focuses on the first three buildings of the five,” stated Architectural Alliance President Brad Parish. “This includes 82 units with a central amenity area featuring a pool deck and outdoor space for bocce ball and grilling.”
The three buildings would all be three stories in height, located on the western edge of the site against the Olentangy River. The remaining two buildings are slated to be five stories in height, stepping down toward the river.
Members of the Downtown Commission raised some concerns with the surface lot configuration offering the future residents of the buildings mostly views of surface parking lots, and criticizing the form and function as being too suburban in design. Parish stated that landscaping would be implemented to mask the surface parking as much as possible and compared the density and format to Grandview Yard.
Once fully completed, the 15-acre “The Reach on Goodale” site will include a total of eight three-to-five-story buildings that will include offices, residences, structured parking, and other amenities with new greenspace and pathways that connect to the riverfront.
No vote was taken by the Downtown Commission, as the project was only submitted for conceptual review this month.
