New Apartments and Parking to Support Redevelopment at Ninth and High
Two three-story apartment buildings wrapped around a parking structure on West Ninth Avenue will support Buckeye Real Estate’s plans to redevelop two historic buildings further down the block.
The new buildings, which would sit at the northwest corner of Ninth and North Wall Street, will hold 18 units between them and serve to conceal a two-level parking garage with parking for over 70 cars. That garage would provide additional parking for new units in the reconfigured row house and long-vacant apartment building at the corner of Ninth and North High Street.
The project appears to be quickly making its way through the neighborhood approval process, having received positive votes from both the University Area Review Board (UARB) and the zoning committee of the University Area Commission (UAC).
Wayne Garland of Buckeye Real Estate said that they hope to receive full approval from the UARB and the full UAC later this month, which would allow them to move on for City Council approval in February.
“We have always tried to exceed parking requirements with our projects,” said Garland, adding that the parking garage – which would be accessible from both Wall and the alley to the north – would be similar in look and function to those in Nationwide Realty Investors’ Grandview Yard development.
Development activity is definitely picking up in the area; across High Street from this proposal, Edwards Communities recently submitted plans for a seven-acre mixed-use development.
