    An application, site plan, and elevation drawings have been submitted.

     Demolish the existing one-story, frame building. Based on a review of Sanborn Fire Insurance maps, the building

    Install New Pizza Stand & Landscaping
     Install a movable shipping container-style pizza trailer, per the submitted example photos.
     Stripe rear of lot for car parking, per the submitted site plan.
     Install new tables and landscaping.

    Looks like they’re gonna tear down the original Mikey’s as well.

    I think the biggest story here is that Barrel 44 is changing it’s name to Barrel: Spirits on High

    So wait… replacing a historic, albeit small and 1-story, building for some picnic tables, more parking and a shipping container? This should be laughed out of the commission meeting.

    ^ I’m not actually sure about that.

    That shack will probably be replaced by a building at some point anyway, so the removal and replacement with a temporary structure (and shipping containers are trendy right now) gets them one step closer to the most desirable solution.

    It will be interesting to see how they respond…

    I’m just not a fan of demolition without some bigger replacement plan in place. Who knows when, or even if, a larger project would ever be built there by the business in question.

    I think Mikey’s owns the building that holds Oddfellows as well as the parking lot with the pizza shack. The shack’s a scrubby dump, not something that’ll be looked upon fondly for any sort of historical value. Hell, when exactly was it built, anyhow?

    If it was scrapped, and the appearances of the current lot area were improved (by an owner who could easily just do nothing with impunity) then what’s not to like? The alternative is not ‘build something bigger’ unless the money and the will to do so were with Mikey’s… which, per the submittal, I’d surmise they’re not.

    I find it interesting the shack being demolished is even called a building.

    Mikey’s Considers Shipping Container Replacement for Original Late Night Shack
    December 13, 2014 9:47 am – Walker Evans

    LNS owner Mikey Soroboro says that the wear and tear on the shack has brought the structure to the edge of functionality, and he thinks a shipping container with a beer-garden style patio replacement is the best solution to keep the business running while fixing some of the other issues with the site.

    Mike Maloof is the owner of the building and lot. The shack construction has been estimated to be sometime between 1901 and 1922.

    The building was first used in 1900 by John C. Hatfield. He was a painter (houses, signs, etc.)

    This is a tough one. I mean, I love history, and historic buildings in historic neighborhoods. But I hate surface lots. But using Shipping Containers is pretty trendy in “big” cities right now, and I’d like Columbus to be a “big” city. And I love Mikey’s LNS and they seem to know what’s good for their business. The landlord thinks it’s ok. They’re prepared to go to the IVC to get the approval. And pizza shouldn’t be served out of a building that is totally dilapidated. And everyone calls it a shack, but a shack can’t possibly ever be Mixed-Use, so how could they fix it up anyways?

    This is a tough one.

    I wouldn’t call it a historic building. It’s more of a lean-to. Literally. To continue to serve food from that thing is impractical. Not everything old is worth saving.

    With a building of this size, couldn’t it be saved by carefully moving it to a museum/cultural center or someplace similar? Though personally I don’t think that is completely necessary. IMHO when it comes to saving structures in historical neighborhoods, pick your battles wisely. (cough) White Castle (cough, cough).
