    Apartments eyed at Wonder Bread, Fireproof Records sites in Italian Village
    Premium content from Business First by Brian R. Ball, Staff reporter
    Date: Friday, November 18, 2011, 6:00am EST

    Short North developer Kevin Lykens wants to redevelop the former Wonder Bread bakery at 697 N. Fourth St. into a mix of 39 one- and 18 two-bedroom apartments.

    He said the project offers 71 on-site parking spots for residents, and eliminating loading zones around the former bakery would create 22 on-street parking spaces. He also has arranged for 100 off-site parking slots at a nearby property.

    Lykens’ plan also calls for a 2,000-square-foot retail space along North Fourth Street for a cafe or delicatessen and an event venue that could host up to 200 guests for wedding receptions and other gatherings.

    The commission voted to delay a decision on the project while Lykens works further on the plan.

    The big sign says ‘wonderbread’. I am hoping they are referring to something the wonderland folks may have put up around the building. It would be really disappointing if they messed with that iconic sign.

    I also think they are not talking about the main sign.

    Well they had bright vests, very fancy tools, and a professional looking truck. So pretty sure.

    It is a neat building in one of the defining areas of Italian Village. I am excited that something decent it happening there. I am sure it will rent out quickly and I hope the restaurant is something new to the area.

    Wonder Bread Lofts will be Home to Mixed-Use Redevelopment
    May 18, 2012
    By: Walker

    Three years ago, Wonder Bread closed their Columbus bakery located at 697 North Fourth Street in Italian Village. For a time it looked like the proposed Wonderland art studio redevelopment project would be located in this space, but those plans fell through last summer.

    Yep, some friends who live right by it just had their rents raised $300. It wasn’t that long ago when that was a relatively inexpensive place to live. That section is the coolest residential area in the SN, imho.
