Grandview Heights: Grandview Yard

Recommended Posts

Looks like a 4 or 5 story building is under construction at Yard and Williams. I went for a run today through the grandview yard and saw stairwells being built out next to the under construction Nationwide building. Looks like it's probably apartments with maybe commercial on the first floor. It doesn't look like the stairwells are apart of the new Nationwide building or the new parking garage.

More Office and Retail Coming to Grandview Yard

 

Nationwide Realty Investors (NRI) has announced the latest new addition to Grandview Yard – a two-story, 32,000-square-foot building which will hold office and retail users. The new building will be located at the northwest corner of Yard Street and Junction Way.

 

Groundbreaking is scheduled for January, with the first tenants scheduled to move in sometime in the fall of 2018.

Two stories?  Meh.

 

It "fits" with that section of the development; I don't mind it as it means another lot is filled.

 

 

Also I'm curious about a few things:

 

 

1. No word on the former HealthSouth lot on Goodale(labelled in yellow)

 

 

2. Apartment demand should be high enough to build the large yellow label, what's the word on that?

 

 

3. Will Wagenbrenner completely takeover the red labelled section and create a transition into the neighborhood?

Re: #3, I used to live directly to the west of the far right hexagon.  There is (was?) still a business or two operating in some of those old warehouse type buildings.  I was hoping I could stick it out to enjoy the entirety of GV Yard and be able to just walk over there (I did all the time to the Giant Eagle) but I decided I needed to get some equity rather than losing everything to rent.

 

That 3rd Ave stretch under the rail road tracks is terrible for bikers and pedestrians.  I know they have a plan to eventually shore that up, but man that's such an awful stretch.

That warehouse you lived by is now gone, everything in the "hexagon" area is being demolished and graded for development.

 

The shoring is up on third getting ready for the new bridge to eventually create the sidewalks on 3rd finally.

CU has some more Grandview Yard construction photos.  These were posted Nov. 30 at http://www.columbusunderground.com/construction-roundup-november-2017-part-2

 

The above link has multiple pics of single-family and multi-family buildings under construction in the Pullman Way section.

 

The 828 at the Yard condo building looks complete.  Project website is https://www.828attheyard.com/

The unannounced apartment building continues to come along nicely. Also the two office buildings next door for Nationwide's campus are just about done. The Manchester building apartments are occupied, but no sign of any ground floor tenants yet. And Chick Fil A is complete as well

Sidewalk/site prep work is being done on the east side of Yard St. and the building going up looks much larger than I expected.

CU posted a report (linked above) about two new buildings under construction at Grandview Yard.  The previously unannounced project – now dubbed the Dorchester – consists of two four-story apartment buildings that will bring the total number of residential units in the Grandview Yard mixed-use development to over 800.

 

The first building of the pair - Dorchester East - will be ready for its first residents by July.  It is located at the northwest corner of Yard Street and Williams Avenue and contains 86 apartments.

Work began in March on the second apartment building - Dorchester West - which sits directly behind the first one.  It will have 150 units and is scheduled to be completed by next summer:

Dorchester-5.jpg?resize=1024%2C630&ssl=1

 

 

Both buildings will be connected via tunnel to an existing four-story parking garage, which is also utilized by Nationwide employees working in one of the four office buildings clustered along Yard Street.  With a final group of office workers moving in last week, the total count of Nationwide employees at Grandview Yard is now up to 4,000:

Dorchester-8.jpg?resize=1024%2C630&ssl=1

 

 

The new apartments mark the fifth development phase at Grandview Yard.  The first phase was completed in 2010, when Hyatt Place Columbus, Planet Fitness and other businesses opened on the southern edge of the site near Goodale Boulevard.  The project developer, Nationwide Realty Investors, declined to provide any details about plans for filling out the remainder of the 90-acre site, but did say that the goal is to have a total of 1,500 residential units at Grandview Yard by the time the final development phases are completed:

Looks like Grandview Yard is growing to the south. The WW Williams redevelopment that previously announced several months appears to be growing in scope. While it isn't completely clear if it's NRI or another developer, there is a new $15 million TIF that is going through negotiations to expand Bobcat and Yard streets south of Goodale and connect it to a expanded swain street that will also extend into Twin Rivers drive.

 

Tentative plans for site include 400 residential units, a hotel and potentially commercial office space.

400 residential units is quite a bit in the relatively small area, especially when you will also have a hotel and office space. Maybe we will actually get something over 5-stories.

Grandview Yard could expand its footprint

 

With new development proposed near Grandview Yard, the city of Grandview Heights is examining its existing agreements.

 

Grandview Heights is considering modifying its compensation agreement with Grandview Yard's developer, Nationwide Realty Investors Ltd. and the Grandview Heights City School District, to increase the cap on the bonds that can be issued for projects there.

 

The proposal would add 14 acres south of Goodale Boulevard to Grandview Yard.

Did they finally finish the work at the RR bridge? Do the sidewalks connect yet?

That aerial is probably over one year old. It's missing several under construction and even completed buildings. Also, 3rd Ave has been one way westbound for at least six months now for the RR bridge construction.

^ If you look closely that 'aerial' is actually a rendering for the two-story office building on Yard St, at center, which is now under construction

Does anyone know what is being built directly to the north of where all the single family and town homes have been built so far in Grandview Yard? I was there the other day and there's a bunch of utility work and streets and alleys laid out. I'm guessing it's probably more of the same but it would be nice to know exactly what is going on.

Drove by over the weekend and on the northern end of the property, bordering 3rd Ave, there was signage to indicate a mini storage facility was being built.  Just to the south of that, it appears more town-homes are going in.

Mini storage?  I know they're building a Goddard School there but I don't remember seeing mini storage, what part?

 

The alley's and streets are for the new neighborhoods that are being built with Wagenbrenner.

79 Single Family Homes To Fill in Western Edge of Grandview Yard

 

Although we’ve known for some time that the western edge of Grandview Yard would eventually be filled in with some type of for-sale product, an announcement today from M/I Homes tells us more about what those units will look like and who will build them.

 

The Columbus-based developer will build 79 single family, 2,000-square-foot homes west of Bobcat Avenue and north of the completed Homes on Pullman Way (that portion of the development, built by Wagenbrenner Development, includes a mix of single family homes and attached townhomes).
