Wood Companies Unveils Hubbard Park Place Renderings
The Wood Companies brought new renderings for their Hubbard Park Place project to Thursday night’s Victorian Village Commission meeting. The development, which was first presented to the commission in October, would have approximately 100 apartment units, 10,000 square feet of office space and 155 parking spaces.
The project would sit at the corner of Park Street and Hubbard Avenue and feature brownstone-style townhomes in front of a seven story apartment and office building. Plans still call for one level of underground parking to extend across most of the site, while a second level would be above-grade and covered by a courtyard.
Commissioners at the October meeting praised the design in general but expressed concern about the height and appearance of the apartment tower. Wood Companies President Mark Wood said that the larger tower remains a concern of the commission, and that he plans to return to a future meeting with tweaks to the tower’s design.
In other Wood Companies news, the Italian Village Society voted at their February 11th meeting to send a letter to the Columbus Recreation and Parks Department recommending approval of an easement necessary for the Parkside on Pearl development to proceed. That development, which would sit at the corner of Hubbard and Pearl next to Italian Village Park and has stirred controversy in the neighborhood, has been approved by the Italian Village Commission.
