New owner could turn Harrison Park Apartments into condos ‘down the road’
Brian R. Ball
Staff reporter – Columbus Business First
The new owner of the Harrison Park Apartments in the Short North could convert the units into condominiums in a few years if there’s a market for them. Jack Cassidy, the president of the America First Real Estate Group fund that bought the property on Perry Street, said the owner has the ability to sell off the multifamily property but has no immediate plans for such a move.

What a coincidence, I was curious what the status of this was so I drove by last weekend and snapped a couple pics… Nothing spectacular to look at yet but progress nonetheless.December 2, 2014 9:31 am at 9:31 am #1052803

I live close by and am glad these will be owner-occupied units with residents who have a greater stake in the area.December 2, 2014 2:37 pm at 2:37 pm #1052884
I’m curious how the units that face the park will look. It’ll be interesting to see, I imagine they’ll at least put in a sidewalk or something.December 2, 2014 2:44 pm at 2:44 pm #1052888

Looks like they’ll be nearly identical just a few feet less in depthDecember 2, 2014 6:02 pm at 6:02 pm #1052925
Thanks for posting, I think the park frontage is an interesting idea. Just like having a big front yard I guess.
I also love the cars they put in the garages. But I guess if you can afford a condo with 4 floors, 5 baths, and a two car garage maybe you do drive a convertible porsche and a lamborghini?December 28, 2014 1:02 pm at 1:02 pm #1056640

Harrison Park Townhomes – Park Place Two and Three Bedroom – $453,000:

Mulberry Design & Build plans to erect the four-story, 26-unit building at 840 Michigan Ave., at the northeast corner of Michigan and Buttles avenues. The one- and two-bedroom units would feature full kitchens.
The building also would offer 1,638 square feet of retail space, which could include a small restaurant.
It would be a boutique hotel, with monthly rates of $1,800 to $2,000,
The developer is asking the city for zoning variances to reduce the building setback from 25 feet to 9 feet along Buttles and to 14 feet along Thurber Drive W., while reducing the required parking spaces for the retail space from seven to zero and eliminating a loading-zone space.
“We met with Harrison West. It’s a fairly modern-looking building. They asked us to make it a little more traditional,” he said.
Tim Price, president of the Harrison West Society, said the group wants the building to fit in with others in the neighborhood. “Just make it look in line with the Harrison West plan,” he said.
He said the units really are apartments, and calling the building an extended-stay hotel simply helps the developer get around zoning rules. The lot, less than 1 acre, is zoned for manufacturing.
“It’s a way for them to build apartments where they want,” Price said.
I suppose you have to start getting pretty clever if you want to build apartments in some areas.September 12, 2015 12:43 pm at 12:43 pm #1093005
I don’t understand why in Columbus they build apartments as “extended stay hotels” in areas zoned for manufacturing instead of simply requesting a rezoning. That area is already full of residential so it seems like it would be an easy rezoning decision.
