A proposal to build a ten-story apartment building above the Axis Nightclub in the Short North will be heard by the Victorian Village Commission this evening.

The proposed structure would occupy the entirety of the rear parking lot of 765-771 N. High St., the three-story mixed-use building that contains the Columbus Running Company, Karavan Treasures and other stores.

It would be constructed in such a way that a portion of the new building would extend over the existing, two-story Axis building, which is located along the alley in the rear of the lot.

Brad Parish, President of Architectural Alliance, is listed as the applicant for the proposal, and CMH Midtown Properties, LLC as the owner. The project was submitted as a conceptual review, meaning that no vote will be taken.

Parish, in an email to Columbus Underground, described the submission as “more of a massing and capacity study to see if the commission/city would be open to a development like this.”

He added that a more detailed design will be developed in the future, based on feedback received from the commission and the results of a preliminary site compliance meeting with the city.

The Victorian Village Commission meets at 6pm at 111 N. Front St.
