Revised Proposal Going Back to German Village Commission
A revised development proposal for a prominent stretch of Livingston Avenue will be presented to the German Village Commission next week.
It will be the seventh time that the project has been before the commission, whose members have previously expressed concern about the height and scale of the project.
The current plan calls for three new buildings on the south side of Livingston Avenue, between Dixon Alley and the former Happy Dragon restaurant (which is now slated to hold a new Philco location). All but one of the existing buildings on that block will be renovated, resulting in a total count of 42 residential units and 52 parking spaces, according to documents submitted to the City of Columbus in advance of Tuesday’s meeting.
The one building that would be demolished under the plan is a two-story office building at 251 E. Livingston Ave. that was built in 1981.
Since the last time the project was reviewed by the commission, the proposal has shrunk from four to three stories, and from 43 to 42 units. When it was first brought before the commission in February of last year, it was submitted as a 74-unit project, with 54 parking spaces.
