New Arlington Gateway Proposal Calls for Larger Footprint, 11 Stories
A revised proposal for the Arlington Gateway mixed-use development calls for a larger footprint, and for a portion of the project to grow to 11 stories. First proposed as a seven-story building that would replace the retail center at 1359-1325 W. Lane Ave., the project later grew to nine stories and, after several additional iterations, was approved by the city of Upper Arlington last year.
The latest revision, which was introduced at a work session of the city’s Board of Zoning and Planning last night, extends the project all the way to North Star Road. That means it now includes the two-story building containing Half Price Books, the Pizza Hut on the corner, and the apartment building at 2376 North Star Rd.
According to plans submitted to the city, Half Price Books would move back into the new building, taking up one of the first-floor retail storefronts facing Lane Avenue.
The new plan calls for a total of 218 residential units on floors two through six, with 27,000 square feet of retail and restaurant space on the ground level. The apartments would wrap around a seven-story, 843-space parking garage, while offices would occupy 133,000 square feet of space on floors seven through 11.
The previously-approved proposal called for 66 residential units, 14,000 square feet of retail and restaurant space, and 80,000 square feet of office space.
Arcadia Development and Continental Real Estate Companies are developing the project, and M+A Architects is the architect.
The proposal is scheduled to be heard and voted on at a special Board of Zoning and Planning meeting on May 24th. For more information, see www.uaoh.net.
