Short North developer Kevin Lykens hopes to redevelop another industrial property in Italian Village.
Lykens bought the property at 174 Detroit Ave. in February for $200,000 but has yet to decide whether to redevelop it for residential or office space.

Four-Unit Townhome Approved for Detroit Avenue

At this week’s busy Italian Village Commission, one smaller development was approved after multiple previous rounds of architectural revisions and redesigns.

The development will directly face another from Lykens right across the street with the renovation and expansion of the former E.J. Thomas building into 31 apartment units.
