Commission Hears Three Proposals for Westerville
Columbus-based developer Casto is proposing a 248-unit apartment complex for a 16-acre parcel of land near the intersection of Sunbury and Central College roads in Westerville.
The development would consist of a series of three-story residential buildings, a central clubhouse, and one commercial building that would front Sunbury Road.
The proposal, which was heard earlier this week by the Westerville Planning Commission, is an update to a previously-approved plan for the land. That plan had called for two commercial buildings instead of one, and a different configuration and design for the apartments.
Also heard at the meeting were two other significant development proposals.
The first, from McGill Development, calls for renovating two large warehouse buildings at the corner of East Broadway Avenue and Broad Street. The mostly-vacant land to the east and north of those buildings would be developed with a live-work concept, featuring two to three-story buildings with office uses on the first floor and residential units above.
The final proposal calls for a two-story, 122-bed skilled nursing facility on about nine acres of land located east of Cleveland Avenue and south of Cooper Road. It’s part of the larger, 95-acre Braun Farm tract, which the city hopes to eventually see developed as a walkable, mixed-use community.
All three proposals were classified as conceptual reviews, meaning they will need to be brought back to a future meeting for a vote from the commission.
