Here you can see the progress of Jeffrey Park and Weinland Park.

 

Thanks for posting these for me. I meant to get to these as well but got sidetracked by work.

Report from CU about two proposals heard by the Italian Village Commission yesterday afternoon.  Both of these proposals are in the block east of Fourth Street between E. 3rd Avenue and Detroit Avenue.  This 3rd-to-Detroit block is also located just south of the on-going Budd Dairy Building renovation that is north of Detroit Avenue:

 

1)  1020 N. Fourth St. – Three-story hotel to replace the existing single-story building and surface-parking lot at the corner of N. 4th & E. 3rd.

 

2)  1040 N. Fourth St. – Replacing the existing single-story building (former Durable Slate building) with a four-story apartment complex that is part of the Budd Dairy redevelopment project being done by the Lykens Companies.  The plan calls for a 66-unit building with commercial space on the first floor.

 


(P.S.: My favorite part of the story was this comment in the CU comments section:  "Not the historic fabric of the community for a greedy developer's boutique hotel! .... oh... this is IV.... GOOD TO GO!")

I love those little cellar windows they've included along the base -- I wonder what the basement uses are? Additional prep space? Storage?

The Beeker building from the Summit bike lane, just north of 5th.

In the far left of the image you can see a new COTA bus shelter for the #4 and #12. It isn't much, but looks more welcoming than prior conditions, and is the only shelter on Summit AFAIK. Only ~ 7 buses during peak (4 off) per hour though.

I've noticed a few new COTA shelters around town. Hope they keep installing them.

 

Can you imagine if this had proper striped crosswalk markings? Ugh....

 

Great pictures, btw.

The apartments are being built on the right side, correct?

Correct. The rest of the garage will be covered with a facade making it look like a warehouse. Hope it turns out solid!

175-Unit Apartment Complex Proposed for Italian Village

 

A proposal to build a 175-unit apartment complex on a surface parking lot in Italian Village got a first look from the neighborhood’s review board earlier this week.

 

The proposal calls for two separate buildings at the southeast corner of Second Avenue and Sixth Street – one five stories tall and the other four. A free-standing garage would be built behind the buildings to provide parking for residents and for the commercial tenants of 274 E. First Ave., the large warehouse-like building that holds the State Library of Ohio and a NAPA auto parts store.

 

The new apartments would sit directly across Second Avenue from the Station 324 development.

It's interesting they bring up the massing. To me, the massing is appropriate given the content of the industrial buildings adjacent and generally on either side of the tracks. It's a nod to what was there.  Even in these renderings they show existing buildings with similar massing. If it was somewhere else, i can see that argument but not here.

Seems like the commission isn’t opposed t the massing as long as it looks good architecturally. 
 

I like it!

I suppose I missed this in all the hubbub but the lots on either side of Budd Dairy are pretty disappointing. And they don't seem to be short term lots either in terms of overall longevity if use. The drainage, curbs, islands, lighting, etc is all pretty legit and built for long term it seems. You'd think with all the delays and growth, they would have been able to commit to developing them in the near term rather than long term.
