    I noticed that the Weir Arend Funeral Home has been demolished at 4221 N. High (just south of Northstar/Jeni’s/etc) It is on the same parcel as the Clintoville Chamber of Commerce building and the total site size is 1.01 ac. I would assume the CoC building will be demolished as well to clear the site, but don’t know.

    The property sold in December 2015 for $1.1 MM to High Deland LLC II, which has a mailing address of 110 Polaris Pkwy, Suite 301 in Westerville.

    Anyone have any insight?

    Just doing a quick google search, my guess is condos.

    It’s a one story retail center similar to the building next door (North Star and Jeni’s). Same owner I believe

    I’m sure they’ll have no problem finding tenants, but kind of underwhelming. Par for the Clintonville course I guess…

    Once again, fear of the wrath of the CAC results a substandard project that avoids their involvement completely.

    It just seems backwards that there is more density along the residential side streets in Clintonville at 2-2.5 stories than there is on the city’s main commercial corridor through the neighborhood. Plus parking is now legal along both side of High Street along this stretch during non-rush hour periods, so density should be encouraged. I understand it’s the developer’s time and money, but come on Clintonville!

    And while I’m at it….Clintonville, especially south of North Broadway, could use a centrally-located municipal parking garage to encourage redevelopment.

    Most of northern Clintonville doesn’t want anything better, I think that’s been pretty obvious. They like being a bedroom neighborhood.

    Condos would be better than this.

    As much as I hate to admit it, you’re probably correct. As long as we’re staying car-centric, parking garages are a viable interim solution. Just take a look at Kent, Ohio. Development stagnated there for decades until they built a large municipal garage/bus terminal. Then it just exploded.
