The View on Fifth - New Mixed-Use Development in 5xNW
June 28, 2013 5:40 pm at 5:40 pm #545571
For those interested:
Commission meets on the First Tuesday of each Month at Holy Trinity Lutheran Church, 2001 Northwest Boulevard, Rm. 110, Columbus, Oh, 43212 at 7:00 pm.
Personally, I doubt anyone will be interested enough to attend.
Sadly, you’re probably right.June 28, 2013 6:19 pm at 6:19 pm #545572
Wonder if 3rd will be open in time to close 5th for construction.June 28, 2013 6:23 pm at 6:23 pm #545573
I guess I shouldn’t be surprised to see people whining
about traffic on Facebook and Twitter. It just still surprises me that people choose to live in an area like 5xNW because of great proximity to amenities, and then complain when new amenities and neighbors arrive because they prefer lower levels of car traffic and would rather this site remained an undeveloped dirt lot.

This project did not go to the 5thXNW area commission it meet all the requirements of the urban commercial overlay along Fifth Ave. and did not have any variances. The commission approved the overlay a couple years ago to encourage this type of development.June 28, 2013 6:43 pm at 6:43 pm #545575
Also, as a note, the city of Columbus will not allow anyone on the commission that does not live work or own a business within the boundary of the 5thXNW area.June 28, 2013 6:45 pm at 6:45 pm #545576

I read, but don’t believe it, the 3rd is to reopen in late July.June 28, 2013 7:03 pm at 7:03 pm #545577
Sure. Look at all the people whining about people complaining about possible traffic problems ;)June 28, 2013 7:05 pm at 7:05 pm #545578

Right; I’ll believe it when I see it.June 29, 2013 3:14 am at 3:14 am #545579
I had seen Holly was corded off for construction months ago and had asked about it. So glad to finally find out what’s happening. How exciting, especially after the loss of Johnson’s Catering.June 29, 2013 6:07 pm at 6:07 pm #545580
So according to the dispatch article from today (http://www.dispatch.com/content/stories/business/2013/06/29/apt-address.html) more information has come out.
*Rents will range from $850 for the lower-end, one-bedroom units up to $2,000-plus for three- or four-bedroom penthouse units.
*The projected cost of the venture is about $42 million: about $28 million for the 5th Avenue building and about $14 million for the Holly Avenue structure
*The plans call for 377 parking spots, “so we’ve allowed for restaurant and retail parking as well,” said Mike Balakrishnan, a principal at JSDI Celmark.June 29, 2013 6:13 pm at 6:13 pm #545581
oops, broke the formattingJune 29, 2013 6:15 pm at 6:15 pm #545582
This is interesting:
“They’re all going to be fully furnished, which is rather unique for Columbus,” Balakrishnan said. “We’re seeing that trend in Austin, where we have a presence. Ohio State is not just local, so we’ll be marketing overseas — Hong Kong, Singapore, Europe — to the kids and their families who are looking for a better product.”
ETA: Wow. Apparently futureman broke CU. Guess posting something about parking caused servers to assplode. ;)June 29, 2013 6:48 pm at 6:48 pm #545583
Smooth move, Ex Lax!
I bet furnished apartments will get more popular over time. Seems like there’s a whole cohort of Millenials that don’t want to own anything except items associated with their hobbies and interests.June 29, 2013 7:33 pm at 7:33 pm #545584
I was excited when I thought this was a condominium project.June 29, 2013 7:47 pm at 7:47 pm #545585

I think they are targeting a very specific student demographic and I think it will be very lucrative for them. Those aren’t the students flocking to South Campus.
