December 20, 2014 1:20 pm at 1:20 pm #1055761
There is a commercial property at 1102 to 1112 (at the north east corner of Oak and Ohio) that was recently sold. This property has been sitting vacant for a long, long time.
It was purchased by Hobbsey 14 LLC, a newly formed entity owned by Edward B Hobbs. Mr. Hobbs also purchased the adjacent property at 119 South Ohio (her purchased this property in his own name along with a co-owner, Krista R. Sparks).

Any details on what they are planning there?December 20, 2014 5:44 pm at 5:44 pm #1055893
Very exciting news! These are the guys who own The Tavern, Cornerstone and their new downtown bar (name escapes me). They have an excellent track record so I can only think good things are in store. At $70,000, they got all three parcels for a song!December 20, 2014 5:49 pm at 5:49 pm #1055894
Awesome! That’s a really cool property, and a huge amount of space. Anything similar to Tavern or Cornerstone would be aces.December 20, 2014 9:32 pm at 9:32 pm #1055897
Looking into it! Details coming! ;)December 21, 2014 2:58 pm at 2:58 pm #1055910
The property at 119 South Ohio transferred in a different transaction; the auditor’s site says it sold for $180,000 on August 18, 2014. This house is adjacent to the three lots at 1092 – 1096 Oak, 1098 – 1100 Oak and 1102-1112 Oak. These lots were transferred in the same transaction in November 2014 for $70,000. The two properties were owned by the same owner prior to the sale. There is a third property within a block. I hope it sells soon because it is a real eye-sore.December 22, 2014 2:02 pm at 2:02 pm #1056031
Historic Oak Street Building To See Retail and Apartment Renovation
December 22, 2014 1:56 pm – Walker Evans
A prominently located vacant building at the northwest corner of Oak Street and Ohio Avenue is slated to get a new lease on life thanks to a plan from new owners (and Olde Towne East residents) Brad Hobbs and Krista Sparks. The husband-and-wife duo have been contributing to the rebirth of Oak Street for several years now, first with the launch of The Olde Towne Tavern, and later with the opening of the Corner Stone Carry Out, but their plans for this new project calls for rehab and not retail.

Here is more information about the owners and the good they are doing.January 11, 2015 3:56 pm at 3:56 pm #1058607
Looks like there’s another retail/residential project on tap further down Oak St at Wilson.
The owner filed plans with the city in December for a two-story new build on the vacant lot at the SE corner, and for a renovation of the existing derelict two-story building next door.
Great to see more activity happening in the area, and development continuing to move further East.January 13, 2015 4:54 pm at 4:54 pm #1058951
Wow… If you were to ask me last year about my ideal development for that corner at Oak/Wilson, it would have mirrored this guy’s proposal almost exactly. I’m pleased to see developers willing to take a chance on the center of the neighborhood east of Ohio and west of Kelton. But this is an ambitious project from what appears to be a one-guy operation. If he can make it work, I’m sure he’ll be rewarded handsomely with eager tenants vying for restaurant space.January 14, 2015 6:03 pm at 6:03 pm #1059085
I live right at the corner of Oak/Wilson, and LOVE THIS. Hoping it can somehow shove that shithole of a “market” across the street on Oak out of business. That place is a nightmare.January 14, 2015 8:52 pm at 8:52 pm #1059102
Great to see/hear about this. OTE is already a pretty great residential neighborhood, but there are far too many empty lot corners like this one sprinkled all throughout the area. It would be great to see many more of them filled in with additions like this one that can add more corner-stores, restaurants and small retail pockets throughout.January 16, 2015 11:33 am at 11:33 am #1059476
I look forward to good things being done with the building on Ohio & Oak. It’s been quite the eyesore for awhile. However, I hope the new owners have a LOT of money for renovation. That building is an absolute mess inside.
I wonder if they bought the vacant lot across the street, too? It was for sale for awhile for like $10K. I’m not sure if it still is for sale (feeling too lazy to look it up).January 25, 2015 9:09 am at 9:09 am #1060600

Historic Bryden Road Building Bought, Apartments Planned
February 4, 2015 9:34 am – Brent Warren
Another historic Olde Towne East building has been purchased by an owner with preservation and renovation in mind. A prominent three-story building at 738 Bryden Road – which has sat empty for years and at one time served as a dormitory for the Columbus School for Girls – was bought in January by a group of developers hoping to turn it into apartments.
