Columbus: Italian Village Developments and News

Recommended Posts

Man I despise overhead power lines more than just about anything a neighborhood could have. I could never live in one of these apartments with wires three feet from my windows.

I do too, one of my biggest pet peeves.  Maybe once they do the 4th St. Streetscape project they can bury them(and I'm not being sarcastic if they ever do that it needs to happen).

Budd Dairy Food Hall update: 74 applicants so far for 7 spots & breakfast a must, Cameron Mitchell Restaurants says

 

header-renderings-budddairy.jpg

 

The Budd Dairy Food Hall isn’t as much about making money as it is making a career (or two or three or seven).

 

Columbus-based Cameron Mitchell Restaurants LLC announced the project in January and it’s on pace to open later this year or in early 2019.

 

It is taking 14,000 square feet spread across two floors, plus a rooftop deck in the historic Italian Village building. While the Mitchell team will run the space’s large central bar, the food will come from seven small kitchens ranging from 170 square feet to 360 square feet with operators who will be licensing space in the project. There is an eighth stall, but the company isn’t ready to announce its plans for it yet.

New Plan Unveiled for Five-Story Building at Fifth and Summit

 

Borror Properties is bringing a new proposal for the southwest corner of Summit Street and East Fifth Avenue to the Italian Village Commission next week.

 

Borror bought the 0.6-acre site from developer Brad Howe last fall, paying a little over a million dollars for it, according to the Franklin County Auditor’s website. The new proposal calls for a five-story building with 86 apartments over first-floor commercial, including space for a 4,000 square foot restaurant on the corner.

Project Update: Budd Dairy

 

Fourth-Crossing-1150x550.jpg

 

Although renovation work in the former Budd Dairy building in Italian Village is not set to begin for another month or two, the new-build development immediately to its north is nearing completion.

 

Kevin Lykens, owner of the Lykens Companies, said that the 36-unit, four-story building will likely open for residents by the end of September, with rents that will range from $1,150 to $1,690 per month.

New Owner Moving Forward with Italian Village Project

 

A plan to build a 14-unit residential development at the southwest corner of East Fifth Avenue and North Fourth Street is moving forward.

 

A new ownership team brought the project back to the Italian Village Commission last month with some minor tweaks to the design. Those changes were approved, and construction on the project is now scheduled to start this month.

 

Jay DeVore, CEO of DEV, said that he and his partners saw an opportunity to jump onto the project after an informal discussion with the previous developers, a group that had been working on the project since first proposing a brewpub and townhomes for the site 2016.

Site has been cleared.

 

The Borror project has reached it's full height.

The project across the street from it seems to have stalled. The construction equipment has been sitting there for months with no progress.

Condo project planned for prominent Italian Village corner

 

A small group of investors and developers gathered at the southwest corner of East 5th Avenue and North 4th Street this week in Italian Village to break ground on a 14-unit development – the latest in a long list of new housing starts transforming this corridor north of downtown.

 

Jay DeVore of DEV and Brandon Foldes of Shyft Collective are developing the project called Four x Five, with units that will range from 900 to 1,700 square feet with garage parking, outdoor patios and multi-floor configurations.

 

Prices start in the $300,000 range and the land has a 100 percent, 15-year tax abatement.

The Bollinger Tower project has started. You can see the new windows at the top. I'm glad it's moving forward but this isn't how I expected them to do the renovation. You'd think they'd strip it down more and then install the new facade.

Summit & 5th. The project is really visible driving west on 5th from Cleveland Ave. It seems like this stretch of E 5th is ripe for a transforming building boom. It will be nice to have a pedestrian friendly commercial street perpendicular to High St.

Work Progressing on Italian Village Projects

 

Detroit-townhomes-1150x550.jpg

 

Residents have started moving into the first of two new projects from the Lykens Companies on Detroit Avenue.

 

The four townhomes on the south side of the narrow Italian Village street were originally proposed as a for-sale product, but are now for rent.

 

“Those are pretty unique, and we’ve seen a lot of excitement for them,” said owner Kevin Lykens, “we went over and above on finishes.”

The empty church at 285 East 4th Avenue in Italian Village has been patiently waiting for chance to be renovated.  And its owner, Italian Village developer Joe Armeni, announced last year that the church would anchor a redevelopment of this property.  The proposed redevelopment would have 22 residential units - 8 units within the renovated church and 14 units within two new four-story buildings on the property:  http://www.columbusunderground.com/proposal-calls-for-condos-in-historic-church-new-townhomes-bw1

 

Last Saturday, the church caught fire overnight.  CU has a report about the fire and multiple photos of its aftermath at http://www.columbusunderground.com/photos-fire-chars-empty-italian-village-church-building

An update to the renovation of this fire-damaged church in today's Dispatch:

 

Long-planned historic church renovation and new apartments in the works for Italian Village 

 

Kevin Lykens, the developer behind the Wonder Bread and Budd Dairy renovations, plans 34 new apartments in Italian Village.  The developer behind the Budd Dairy project is proposing a new-build apartment project just behind it, on Fourth Avenue.  The Bethany, a 34-unit, four-story apartment building, would be located at 245 E. Fourth Avenue.  The project is on scheduled for review at Tuesday’s Italian Village Commission meeting.

 

Developer Kevin Lykens said the project is named for the Bethany Baptist Church next door.  Lykens also bought that abandoned historic church, which had been planned for renovation by an earlier owner before being damaged by a fire three years ago.  He plans to start renovating it into seven townhomes along with a carriage house within the next month, after receiving final permits.
