Franklinton Mixed-Use Development Proposal Receives Updates
Changes have been been made to the large mixed-use development planned for the former Riverside-Bradley public housing site in East Franklinton. The first phase of the project will now include 230 apartments, over 36,000 square feet of office and retail space, and a 290-space parking garage.
The layout of the development has also been altered, apparently in response to concerns expressed by the East Franklinton Review Board when the project was reviewed conceptually in May of last year. Board members at that time thought more emphasis should be given to the river side of the project.
Although the development still features two five-story buildings fronting Rich Street, two rows of three-story townhomes have been added that will look out onto the Scioto River.
The new proposal will be presented by Casto to the EFRB on June 21st. Casto is collaborating with the Robert Weiler Co., Donald W. Kelley & Associates, Smoot Construction Co., Simco Construction Co. and the Columbus Metropolitan Housing Authority on the project.
“Casto and our partners are excited about the development and think it will have a great impact on the city and Franklinton,” said Hilary Deason of Casto.
