The opening of Industry Columbus this spring will mark the latest milestone in the ongoing transformation of Downtown’s Long Street corridor.

The new mixed-use development, located at 230 E. Long St., will hold 234 apartments, a 205-space garage and 4,400 square feet of space for a restaurant or retail tenant. Amenities include a dog park, a rooftop pool and hot tub, as well as a full floor of co-working space.

Nicholas Gerli, who is working with developer Charles Street Partners on the project, said that they expect the building’s first residents to be moving in by early May.

“We’re filling in a big vacant space, and we’re excited about the potential of this area,” he said, referring to the fact that the new building is going up on what was for years a surface parking lot.

Recent development projects (like the Normandy and Neilston apartments across the street) and nearby businesses (like Pins, Roosevelt Coffee and the Hills Market), all contribute to the attractiveness of this particular part of Downtown, Gerli said, adding that, “we think the area has the potential to keep transforming into a walkable, urban neighborhood.”

As for what attracted the Denver-based developer to Columbus in the first place, Dean Dominguez, Senior Investment Researcher for Charles Street Partners, said that there were several factors.

“We spent [about] 24 months doing research across country, touring a bunch of markets, and this is one of places we ended up liking, for a plethora of reasons,” he said. “The multi-family market is strong, employment is great, and it’s anchored by a lot of strong companies, including a tech startup scene.”

Studio apartments in the building will start at $1,150, one-bedrooms at $1,400 and two-bedrooms at $2,200. A leasing office – outfitted with VR equipment to allow virtual tours of the building while construction work continues – is located across the street from the project, on Fifth Street.

NBBJ and ArchAll collaborated on the design of the building, with Schlegel Design Group handling interior design. Village Green will be serving as property manager.
