Three More Apartment Developments Proposed in Clintonville
Over 550 new apartment units have just been announced for various parts of Clintonville — spread across three individual development proposals.
The first is a 52 unit three-story apartment building from Preferred Living, planned for Indianola Avenue, just north of East Cooke Road. The new building would replace two single story structures, currently home to a gun shop and a used car lot. 78 parking spaces are planned behind the building and on the north side of the property.
The second proposal sits at 3632-3640 Indanaola Avenue, just north of Weiland’s Market, and contains 300 apartment units, 12,000 square feet of office space, 10,900 square feet of restaurant and retail space, and a total of 577 parking spaces in both surface lots and a parking garage. The new development would replace current warehouse/logistic buildings. The proposal comes from Vision Development, a Columbus-based apartment community builder.

The third development is being proposed by CASTO, which would add 200 rental units to the southwest corner of the Graceland Shopping Center. The land is currently unoccupied, sitting in between an LA Fitness Center and a Kroger Marketplace. Instead of one large building, the apartments would be broken up into six smaller three-story buildings.
Both projects on Indianola Avenue are technically being proposed as extended stay hotels, which allows developers to bypass certain reviews from the Clintonville Area Commission. The City of Columbus reviewed zoning rule changes last year, which would limit the possibilities for apartment developers to build as extended stay hotels, noticing a trend with other developments including Preferred Living’s Madison Park on Henderson Road and Taylor House on Bethel Road.
Columbus Underground Urban Development Writer Brent Warren is speaking soon with representatives from the three development companies for more specifics on each individual proposal. Stay tuned for updates.
