Five-Story, 219-Unit Apartment Building Proposed for Jeffrey Park
Wagenbrenner Development will present the latest plans for their Jeffrey Park development to the Italian Village Commission tomorrow. The plans call for a five-story, 219-unit apartment building located east of the apartments currently under construction along West First Avenue. A 156-space parking lot and a 267-space, two-level garage would be located between the new apartment building and the railroad tracks that form the development’s eastern edge.
Regular readers of our Construction Roundup feature know that the pace of construction on the north end of the Jeffrey Park development has been picking up in the last few months. This part of the development – stretching east along First from North Fourth Street – will include 270 apartments and a community center building with a restaurant, office space, fitness center and pool.
When Wagenbrenner partner Joe Williams talked to Columbus Underground last fall, he outlined the company’s long-term vision for Jeffrey Park, which he said has about a ten-year horizon.
“The idea generally is that you have dense multi-family on First, along the railroad tracks on the east, and probably along I-670, although that piece could be office, or could be a lot of things,” he said. “And then the center of the Jeffrey, south of the multi-family that’s being built now, would be for-sale product.”
Also on the agenda for tomorrow’s commission meeting is a proposal for a one-acre section of land between Auden and Neruda avenues, behind the townhomes on Fourth that were built in 2006 as an early phase of the failed Jeffrey Place development. This piece of land is controlled by local developer Chad Seiber, who proposed 26 fee-simple townhomes for the site in April, but is coming back this month with a proposal for 24 single-family homes.
