    Revised Olympic Plan Reduces Apartment Density, Increases Parking
    April 3, 2015 10:34 am – Walker Evans

    In August, local developer Kyle Katz announced plans to replace their family-owned property in Clintonville that formerly housed the now-closed Olympic Pool with a four-story 152-unit mixed-use apartment project. The plan faced some neighborhood opposition that thought that the development would cause a negative impact to the area, and it was officially placed “on hold” in October.

    And this:

    $18 million project.

    Just a gut reaction, but I’m guessing this project now goes through. Doesn’t hurt at all that the former Olympic pool site now looks like a WWI battleground.

    Now all they have to do is build it and buy the ninja house and their victory will be complete.

    Looking forward to an Indianola featuring more than crumbling concrete.

    April 22, 2015 3:00 pm – Brent Warren

    New renderings showing the latest, revised plan for the former Olympic Pool site in Clintonville were revealed last night at a neighborhood meeting. Developer Kyle Katz, whose initial proposal for the site faced criticism from some in the neighborhood for its density and potential to cause traffic and parking headaches, said that he was pleased by the response to the new design from those in attendance.

    Great news! I hope the developers of the High/West North Broadway project were taking notes on how Katz and Crawford Hoying shifted their original proposal in order to move ahead with the project. I know some will bemoan the loss of some of the apartments (from the original 150 to 115) and the smaller square footage available for first floor retail in the final proposal. Still, this is a big step forward for Clintonville.

    Construction likely to start in November, “Columbus City Council on Monday unanimously approved the zoning for developer Kyle Katz’s plan for 114 apartments and 5,000 square feet of street-level retail, ending a year-long saga for the 3450 Indianola Ave. site.”

    Also, Clintonville/Beechwold/Old North Residents are recieving a survey about pool use including a question or two about the old Olympic Pool. Most are have you used, which one did you use, would you use, a new indoor/outdoor pool in the area. The survey is very clear in saying no new taxes with this pool so it seems like maybe another developer is considering a local replacement of the Olympic.

    Especially the east side of the section between Cooke and Morse. They would also need to introduce a cross-walk or two in that zone.

    I’ll try to grab an image of it when I get home.

    So the survey was complete and sealed already by the time I got home. But here is the cover letter. Again, the questions were mostly about whether or not you used a pool, how many times, which one, and would you use a new pool, how many times, etc.
