Columbus: 600 Goodale

Wagenbrenner lands $3M grant for Kimball project

Business First of Columbus - by Brian R. Ball

Thursday, May 27, 2010, 6:15pm EDT

 

A Columbus real estate developer has landed a $3 million state grant to assist in the redevelopment of the former Kimball Midwest Inc. property off Goodale Street into an 110-unit apartment complex.  The Ohio Department of Development’s Clean Ohio Council on Thursday approved the grant Wagenbrenner Development Inc. and the City of Columbus applied for to assist in the partial demolition and an environmental cleanup of the 4.2-acre property at 582 W. Goodale Street.

 

Wagenbrenner Development President Mark Wagenbrenner said the $11 million project calls for turning the lower level of the former distribution center into parking.  The second and third floors of the 80,000-square-foot building would get converted into loft apartments with the possibility of building two more floors atop the structure.

An update and more information on the Kimball renovation project from Business First.

 

Kimball Midwest project backers stoked with Clean Ohio support

Business First of Columbus - by Brian R. Ball

Friday, June 4, 2010

 

A trio of developers have their hopes raised over plans to build at least 120 apartments at the Kimball Midwest Inc. property between downtown Columbus and Grandview Heights after the project received a $3 million state grant.  Apartment developers Group 90 LLC and Metropolitan Holdings Ltd. will join Wagenbrenner Development Inc. to renovate and expand the 80,000-square-foot former industrial building at 582 W. Goodale St.

 

The state Department of Development’s Clean Ohio Council on May 27 approved the grant to eliminate environmental hazards and demolish some ancillary buildings at the 3.5-acre site, which has a 120-year-long history of industrial production and distribution operations, including a foundry in the late 1800s.

 

“We think this is a fabulous location,” said Ted Foster, Group 90’s managing member.  “You can get to downtown and Grandview quickly. You can get to Ohio State (University). It’s very appealing.”

From Sunday's Dispatch, an update on two more apartment projects.  One is a 154-unit, three building project at Grandview Yard.  The second is a 180-unit project at 582 W. Goodale in Columbus.  Both are within a mile of each other in what has been termed "the golden triangle between Downtown, Grandview and Ohio State University."

 

More about the Grandview Yard project in the Grandview Heights: Grandview Yard thread.

 

More about 180-unit project at 582 W. Goodale in the Dispatch article below.


 

300-plus apartments in works near Downtown

By Marla Matzer Rose, The Columbus Dispatch

Sunday, August 28, 2011 - 6:43 AM

 

Wagenbrenner Development and Brett Kaufman took final steps toward getting the go-ahead for a 180-apartment project at 582 W. Goodale Street.

 

The 3.5-acre site, which formerly housed factory and warehouse operations, was cleaned up over the past year with aid from a $3 million Clean Ohio grant.  Demolition is under way at the site, with late summer 2012 targeted as the opening date for the first units in the complex.  With apartments ranging from studios to 1,200-square-foot two-bedroom units, Kaufman expects rents to range from about $780 to $1,550.  He said he isn’t able to estimate the project’s cost yet.

 

The influx of new rental units isn’t expected to drain demand for apartments in the Downtown core, said Ken Danter, who leads real-estate market-research firm Danter Co.  He said the vacancy rate for Downtown apartments is averaging less than 4 percent, “the lowest we’ve ever seen” for the area.

Excerpt from a Business First article about a Columbus developer branching out on his own after working at Schottenstein Real Estate for 11 years, including the last five years as its president.  The article covers his first two projects after leaving Schottenstein.  One is a 322-unit apartment complex planned for northeast Columbus near New Albany.  The other project is something more interesting to us at Urban Ohio.  It is a five-story, 180-unit apartment project at the former Kimball Midwest distribution center at 582 W. Goodale Street to be known as The Goodale.  This is on the northern edge of downtown across from White Castle's headquarters on Goodale Street.

 

Kaufman jumps out of gate with pair of Columbus apartment projects

By Brian R. Ball, Business First staff reporter

Date: Friday, November 25, 2011, 6:00am EST

 

Columbus developer Brett Kaufman this year agreed to buy the former Kimball Midwest distribution center at 582 W. Goodale Street from Wagenbrenner Development Inc., which had cleaned the property using a Clean Ohio Revitalization Fund grant.  Kaufman is planning to build the Goodale, a five-story property with 180 apartments that should be ready in mid-2012.

Very strange location for this, basically in between highways and exit ramps, but the apartment project looks pretty nice.  174 new units in a 5-story building across from White Castle's HQ.

Put some windows in that ground floor (and maybe even some retail) and that's a great building.

I'm all for ground-floor retail but in this case, I don't think it would work.  It's between highways/exit ramps and not really connected to any sort of urban fabric.

The 600 Goodale apartment project has begun construction.  This is a new 174-unit luxury apartment development at the northwest edge of downtown located across Goodale from the White Castle Headquarters Office.  The 600 Goodale project has an estimated completion date of Spring 2013.  Below are two photos of the 600 Goodale construction taken in late July 2012 in Columbus Underground: Construction Roundup — July 2012:

Interesting new view from a recently completed bike trail just east of the 600 Goodale project.  The bike trail uses an abandoned rail line that goes over the SR315 to I-670 freeway lanes in the area to connect Goodale with the Harrison West neighborhood to the north.  More info about that bike trail here.

What I am surprised with was how clean the bike lanes were in the recent snow storm (from December). I was visiting Ink in the Short North and remarked about how... unclear the side streets were after several days of clear weather, whereas the bike paths were seemingly salted and bare. Good for Columbus!

More construction photos for 600 Goodale.  The first two are from Columbus Underground's Construction Roundup: January 2013.  The first is a view from Goodale Street looking at the southern side of the project.

The second view of 600 Goodale is from a spot north of all the freeway ramps in the area.  This view shows the back side of the project (i.e. the north-facing side).

This aerial view of the 600 Goodale project is from the Kaufman Development facebook page.  The view is looking westward toward the Olentangy River.  Goodale Street is to the left in the photo.  The new city bike trail is to the bottom in the photo.

The Kaufman Development facebook page also contained some information on another City of Columbus bike trail project near the 600 Goodale project.  It is a ramp that connects the higher-level Goodale Street sidewalk with the existing lower-level Olentangy River Bike Trail.  Below is a rendering of the ramp project from the Kaufman facebook page.  This would go on the opposite side of the river across from the 600 Goodale location.  If you look at the aerial photo from the previous post, you can see the Olentangy River Bike Trail at the top of that image.  This is the ramp project location.

Developer Encouraged by Early Interest in 600 Goodale

By: Brent Warren, Columbus Underground

Published on February 14, 2013 - 4:30 pm

 

Kaufman Development began leasing 600 Goodale at the beginning of February and has been very encouraged so far by the level of interest.

 

The five-story, 174-unit apartment building on the banks of the Olentangy River is currently under construction, and Kaufman hopes to have the first apartments completed and ready for tenants by June of this year.  The majority of the building (about 70%) will be made up of one-bedroom units, which will start at $825.  The floor plan options also include two- and three-bedroom units and a handful of larger penthouse units on the fifth floor.

 

Amenities within individual units include a washer/dryer, walk-in closets and stainless steel appliances, while the building will feature a second-floor terrace and courtyard, a swimming pool, and a parking garage with electric car charging stations.  Kaufman is also promoting covered bike parking for those hoping to take advantage of the recently-announced bike improvements on Goodale.

Construction to Wrap Soon on 600 Goodale

By: Brent Warren, Columbus Underground

Published on December 13, 2013 - 10:00 am

 

Kaufman Development’s 600 Goodale project is on track to be completed soon; the final units were turned over to renters last week and the last finish details should be complete by the end of the year.

 

CEO Brett Kaufman said that interest in the project, which was initially strong, has continued throughout the year and translated into a building that is now 96% leased.  The first residents moved in over the summer.
