    Noticed this item on the agenda for tomorrow’s UARB meeting:

    Application for Zoning, Code Enforcement and/or Conceptual Review

    2020 North High Street Mixed Use Development

    Bhakti Bania (BBCO Design)

    conceptual review of development proposal

    2020 North High is currently the home of a very suburban-style Wendy’s which occupies a large, prime lot right at Woodruff/High.

    BBCO Design is also the architect for the new Jeffrey Place development.

    There’s not much detail on the agenda at all however, so I was wondering if anyone had any info about this?

    Or maybe would be in attendance tomorrow and could fill us in afterward? ;)

    Heard some light details 2 weeks ago. We’ve got Brent on the case of researching what is proposed! ;)

    I thought it was crazy that they were able to get a drive thru built on busy, busy High St, but I guess White Castle in the SN also has one. Times have changed.

    It will be interesting to see what gets built and if a Wendy’s has a place in it. It is a great location and Wendy’s is updating to their new store concept. A modern mixed use apartment building would be a nice addition.

    At one point, I used to live right behind it. Last I heard the tiny one room efficiencies (with shared kitchens) at the Ohio Stater Apartments were going for $725 a month. I can see the Wendy’s franchise owner wanting a piece of that.

    I really don’t know what student wouldn’t want to live right on High Street. If you could get 5-6 stories of studios/1 bedrooms I’m sure they would rent quickly.

    Interesting. I noticed the drilling rig in the parking lot taking soil borings. At one time there was a plan to align Woodruff through the north side of the Wendy’s parking lot (keeping the building to the north intact).

    It also is a little bit better of an area than a couple of blocks south (more of a north campus feel). It was a great place to be on OSU gamedays if you are in to that thing.

    Actually, thinking about it ….. 2 or 3 bedrooms prob. make more money and cost less to build. They only need one kitchen per 3 bedrooms.

    Mixed-use Development Proposed at Site of Campus Wendy’s
    Published on February 28, 2013 2:15 pm
    By: Brent Warren

    Two local developers are interested in constructing a five-story mixed-use building at the current site of the Wendy’s at 18th and High. Solove Real Estate, in partnership with Celmark Development, will present the project for conceptual review at a meeting of the University Area Review Board tonight.

    Looks like a much better use of the site than what’s there now! ;)

    Yep, it is practically a no-brainer with its location. I imagine one day McDonalds will have the guts to give up its High St campus parking lot and do the same.

    I guess I’ll have some fancy, shiny surroundings when I get my Buckeye Donuts then!

    I’m concerned about the impact this will all have on the towing companies. ;-)
