Grandview Yard. That’s the name of the commercial, retail and residential development planned for the old Big Bear site in Grandview Heights.
“(Grandview Yard) will have significant similarities to the Arena District,” Ellis told members of the Columbus Metropolitan Club at their meeting at the Columbus Athletic Club yesterday afternoon. The development is estimated at $600 million to $650 million on 80 to 90 acres.
It’s the sort of multi-use development Grandview Heights city officials want to see in the 100-acre site bordered by Goodale Boulevard on the south, 3rd Avenue on the north, railroad tracks on the east and an alley near Northwest Boulevard on the west.
The project, which Ellis called long term, would include 600 to 800 residential units. That could add 1,200 to 2,000 residents to the city, Grandview Heights Development Director Patrik Bowman said.
