    Looks like this project might be revived according to a Dispatch article today, though developer says admittedly that it is in preliminary stages. May also be more dense than original proposed.

    It looks like most of the “controversy” on density in that Dispatch article is about the specific proposal for apts on King Ave and ongoing single-family home conversions in WP, which is understandable. I think focusing larger developments on High street is much more widely supported, as it relieves some of the demand pressure which is causing students to encroach deeper into the surrounding neighborhoods.

    The blurb about reviving the 7th/High proposal is certainly good news in that regard,

    “Developer Kohr Royer Griffith is trying to revive a plan to build student apartments at the northeast corner of N. High and E. 7th Avenue.

    This development could be even taller than the planned five-story, 86-unit building that generated controversy two years ago. The city’s Board of Zoning Adjustment had approved a variance in 2012 for that project to allow the height to be at least 75 feet in an area zoned for buildings no taller than 35 feet.

    ‘I think it will fit in nicely with the area, certainly a denser development than what is there now,” Royer said.”

    University District development: High-rises, high density on High?
    By Mark Ferenchik
    The Columbus Dispatch • Wednesday April 16, 2014 5:02 AM

    The future of the University District might look a lot like the project rising along N. High Street across from the Ohio State University campus.

    The View on High apartments — a five-story, 50-unit complex with 170 bedrooms geared toward juniors, seniors, graduate students and university staff members — illustrate the developments that a draft plan for the district envisions along N. High.

    I like how they include university staff members as the target for the view. No staff member is going to want to live with several others and around many 5-bedrooms in one complex. It just sounds better to say they are the target. Same thing with the King Ave site and their idea of grad students along with a few 6 bedrooms.

    Such great news; with everything that is going on along High Street it is hard to imagine that the second time won’t be the charm for this project.
