Downtown Columbus could see another parking lot replaced with an apartment building if a new proposal moves forward.

A Detroit-based developer wants to build a 220-unit apartment building at the northeast corner of Grant Avenue and Mound Street downtown.

The guitar store German Village Music Haus, which occupies a small brick building at 350 S. Grant Ave., would not be a part of the project – the new development would be built around it.

The rest of the site is currently owned by Franklin University, which uses it as a parking lot.

The proposal, from Broder & Sachse Real Estate, will get a conceptual review from the Downtown Commission on August 27.

Site plans and renderings submitted to the city show a seven-story building featuring a central courtyard and a three-story, internal parking garage. The ground floor would hold a lobby and “possibly some retail space,” according to a letter submitted by the developer.

The Downtown Commission meets at 8:30 a.m. Tuesday, in Room 204 of 111 N. Front St. Also on the agenda for the meeting is the new soccer stadium and mixed-use development proposed for West Nationwide Boulevard.
