Project to Add Apartments and Offices to Shops at Worthington PlaceAugust 1, 2013 12:50 pm Brent Warren
Local developer Crawford Hoying received approval last week from the city of Worthington to move forward with a mixed-use development adjacent to The Shops at Worthington Place mall. The project, dubbed Worthington Place Apartments, consists of two buildings and will feature 200 apartments, 23,000 square feet of office space and 300 structured parking spaces.
One of the buildings will be located on West Wilson Bridge Road in the empty lot that formerly held the James Tavern restaurant, while the other will be built on what is now a parking lot on the west side of the mall. The apartments will consist of 90 one-bedroom units, 107 two-bedrooms and three three-bedrooms.
Marketing Manager Stephen Brothers-McGrew expects the apartments to attract a mix of empty nesters and young professionals.
“Because the project is in such close proximity to the recently re-imagined Shops at Worthington Place, residents will have walkable access to a number of high quality restaurants and retail shops… even to a grocery store and pharmacy,” he said. “Anyone who locates their business in the commercial part of the development will have access to those same great amenities from the workplace.”
Brothers-McGrew says that construction should begin in the next month, with a targeted completion date some time in the fall of 2014.
