The Morgan phase one is finishing up. The demo is on going for The Gemma across the street. The duplex or townhouse to the south of the apartment building is being framed out right now.

I don't know if it's the weather but these look very cheap in person. I think a light beige brick instead of the stucco would have gone a long way. Also if the city would make people screen the damn ground mounted AC units...

I would love to see the Long street development downtown (Neilston , Normandy and the new big building about to be built across from them)extend east on both sides and right into KLB. That would really help connect the areas and really give a boost to KLB. A lot of the area in between could include student housing as well. We need to develop our main corridors with density. We need to replicate at least some kind of version(if somewhat watered down)of High in the Short North on some of these corridors.

 

Heck start on both ends and build towards eachother until the development meets in the middle.

I agree that corridor has potential to be the diverse neighborhood that so many in Columbus are clamoring for(at least on this board).

Historic building in Olde Towne East being converted to coworking space

 

A three-story building at the southeast corner of East Main Street and Wilson Avenue has always been a merchant stand for Olde Towne East but now it's coming back as a different kind of gathering place.

^ More about that new co-working space at East Main & Wilson (1223 E. Main Street) from the Dispatch: (including a rendering below)

New coworking space coming to Near East Side

 

Co-working space is cropping up in hot markets such as the Short North and German Village, but one coming to the Near East Side is seen as a significant step toward the continued revitalization of the historic neighborhood.  The three-story brick building on E. Main Street near Wilson Avenue that opened in 1907 as a grocery topped by apartments will soon be called The Merchant, a co-working space developed by Danielle Rohrbach and Melissa Dickson.

 

In December, Rohrbach and Melissa Dickson were awarded $191,000 in state historic tax credits for the building renovation, estimated at $1.5 million.  The extensive overhaul will include restoring the original brick, woodwork and wood floors, and replacing the windows with new ones that maintain the building’s historic character. ... The partners plan to open The Merchant in the fall.  More details will be available as the project progresses at https://themerchantcolumbus.com/.

 

The partners also acquired two other historic buildings on the same block that will become a small apartment building and retail space.  Those projects, estimated to carry a combined price tag of just under $1.1 million, received historic tax credits of $170,000. ... The Merchant joins several other high-profile Near East Side projects such as Connect Realty’s Trolley Barn historic renovation and a number of smaller residential and retail projects.

Not as much to see yet of the 36-unit, four-story condominium building under construction at 1676 E. Broad Street across from Franklin Park - except for a prominent website sign that obscures the construction going on behind it.  But it is a good-looking project.  More info at https://thefranklincondos.com/

Long-Stalled Project in Olde Towne East Now Under Construction

 

Preliminary construction work has begun at 122 Parsons Ave., a vacant lot in Olde Towne East that has seen numerous development proposals over the years.

 

The latest concept calls for a four-story building that will hold 78 apartments, a first-floor parking garage, and about 1,900 square feet of retail space.

Developers of Shipping Container Apartments Looking to Disrupt Real Estate Industry

 

The developers of a 25-unit apartment building taking shape on Old Leonard Avenue think that they are onto something big, and a quick look at the project’s timeline shows why. After breaking ground in November, it took just five days to stack and weld 54 shipping containers together to form the basic shape of the three-story building. The first residents could move in to one of the 640 square-foot, two-bedroom units as soon as May.

 

“Time is money,” said Derrick Pryor, Principal of AES Development, “that’s one of the major benefits of this way of building.”

https://www.dispatch.com/business/20190422/work-to-resume-on-landmark-cargominium-shipping-container-complex

 

It appears that the Cargominium apartment project went up quickly - but after the containers were wrapped with a stucco exterior, work came to a halt last year.  Now, according to the above linked Dispatch article, a new developer is stepping in to rescue the project on Old Leonard Avenue.  Below is a photo showing how far along Cargominium got before work halted.  The new development group said they will also finish developing the CargoHome sister project - single-family homes built of shipping containers on Bassett Avenue - around the corner from Cargominium.  Construction stopped on that project after one of the homes was framed in.

^The history of this is very interesting to me. Our family purchased several cars from Avery Pontiac (now Dave Gill Chevy at Broad and Hamilton). I didn't know Avery started here. Hope the project is a success!

This affordable housing project helps keep parents in college, and it's growing

 

img6803*750xx5184-2916-0-270.jpg

 

A growing affordable housing development on the Near East Side is seeing success helping underprivileged parents get their college degrees.

 

Stretching down North 17th Street south of East Long Street, Columbus Scholar House is a unique affordable housing concept with a larger mission. Constructed by the Columbus Metropolitan Housing Authority, the King-Lincoln development houses young parents – though not limited to single parents – who need housing while they complete a degree.

 

Nearly 70 percent of the students enrolled are still working part time to support the household, Chad Ketler, CEO of property manager Community Properties of Ohio, said during a tour.
