High Buttles Apartment Building to be Renovated
May 16, 2014 12:52 pm – Walker Evans
In a recent interview, developer Michael Schiff told CU Writer Brent Warren that plans to renovate the apartment building located at the southwest corner of Buttles and High are moving forward soon. The building currently houses several retail businesses including Two Fish, Red and Kingmakers Board Game Parlour as well as 40 apartments on the upper floors.

Interesting – another parking lot might bite the dust.May 16, 2014 9:03 pm at 9:03 pm #1016696
Yeah, I have to imagine that the city wouldn’t be opposed to letting that lot go for the right type of replacement development. Granted, they may require that a certain number of public spaces be allotted as well, but that might not be a bad thing for that spot.
Would love to see a tall modern addition there though. Two stories of ground-floor retail topped/backed with a 3-4 story garage topped with another 10-15 stories of residential. ;)
Just throwing ideas out there. ;)May 17, 2014 2:29 am at 2:29 am #1016738
I think the Short North could handle another hotel with all the visitors into the neighborhood..this lot is right in the heart of the arts district. I envision something around 12 to 15 stories also with ground floor retail, 6 floors of hotel and 6 or more of residential with a rooftop garden overlooking the skyline. OOH the Possibilities!May 17, 2014 9:29 pm at 9:29 pm #1016821
Glad to see interest in taking another surface parking lot out of the equation.September 9, 2014 10:17 am at 10:17 am #1040330
We are getting ready to renovate the Diplomat, which is what we’re calling the building at Buttles and High. We are expecting to start that in a couple months. We’re hoping to go in for final approval for Hubbard Park Place at the next Victorian Village Commission meeting. We’ve got conceptual approval of that, and we have our finishes in place that we’re going to be submitting.November 28, 2015 1:11 pm at 1:11 pm #1104297
Project Update: The Diplomat
November 28, 2015 1:08 pm – Walker Evans
While The Wood Companies are currently wrapping up work on The Dennison in Victorian Village, construction is in full swing inside The Diplomat — the four story building at Buttles and High that the company is redeveloping in collaboration with Schiff Capital Group. The second, third and fourth floors in the building are getting a total renovation, converting the existing 37 apartment smaller units into a slightly larger set of 34 apartment units.
