The Olympic Development Approved in Clintonville
After a year of public meetings and design revisions, The Olympic mixed-use development has now been approved by the Clintonville Area Commission, the Clintonville Zoning Committee and Columbus City Council.
The project was originally proposed with more units, less parking and a bolder design, but neighborhood concerns about all three put the project on hold until it could be redesigned to address concerns. The end result is a four-story 115-unit apartment building with 5,000 square feet of retail space.
“We’ve always had the support of the Commissioners, but not the support of a small vocal minority in the community,” explained developer Kyle Katz when discussing some of the heated debate during public meetings about the project. “But we feel that in the end we have a very good project to develop and deliver.”
Katz said that the next step for The Olympic is to finalize construction drawings with plans to break ground in November. He said that the construction process would take approximately 12 to 14 months to complete.
