Second Mixed-Use Development Proposed for West Fifth Avenue
A new proposal from Elford calls for a mixed-use development at 915 W. Fifth Ave., just down the street from where the company also plans to redevelop a 5.4-acre property owned by Goodwill Columbus.
The new project, located at the southwest corner of Fifth and Delashmut avenues, would require the demolition of a White Castle-owned building on the corner, as well as a separate, one-story commercial building fronting South Avenue.
Although a detailed plan for the Goodwill site has yet to be released, zoning applications submitted to the City of Columbus for the White Castle site indicate that the project would contain a total of 196 apartments, about 7,000 square feet of commercial space, and a parking garage with room for 326 cars.
The proposed development consists of two buildings that would be connected via an elevated walkway over South Street.
White Castle also worked with Elford to redevelop its headquarters site at 555 W. Goodale St., where a new office building opened in 2019 and work continues on the final pieces of what will be a 20-acre mixed-use development.
