Upper Arlington OKs $100M Arlington Gateway, largest development in city's history

Upper Arlington has green-lit the $100 million Arlington Gateway project – a contentious proposal for Lane Avenue that ended up at 11 stories after several revisions.

 

After two hours of discussion Monday night, city council voted 5-1 to authorize a development agreement with the project team, Continental Real Estate Cos., Arcadia Development of Ohio and Kohr Royer Griffith. The approval came despite continued opposition from neighbors worried about the size of the development and the impact on traffic.

 

“I committed to ensuring the long-term financial stability of our community and this is too big to jeopardize," councilwoman Michele Hoyle said. "This land was annexed specifically for dense development. I don’t believe we can afford to wait another 13 years for a viable development to come forward."

Good to see UA move that forward.  Landlocked inner suburbs like this need to figure out the best ways to keep growing, and densification is really the only way to do it.  UA probably has the best chance to do this going forward given that it's the biggest inner suburb by land area by far.  Grandview Heights and Bexley have far more challenges.  I think Grandview Yard had the potential to be much larger in scale, but that opportunity was squandered IMO.

Six-story development pitched at Upper Arlington shopping center

A developer wants to put up a six-story mixed-use building up at the Golden Bear Shopping Center along Riverside Drive near Fishinger Road in Upper Arlington.

 

Arcadia Development of Ohio filed plans with the city for a 270,176-square-foot building at 3700 Riverside Dr. Those plans call for 30,000 square feet of ground-floor retail and restaurant space, 37,000 square feet of second-floor office space and four stories with 108 residential units. 

 

The developer told the city it hopes to retain the existing tenants there, including Colin’s Coffee, the Figlio restaurant and the U.S. Post Office.

Six-Story Development Proposed for Golden Bear Shopping Center in UA

 

A proposal to redevelop the Golden Bear Shopping Center in Upper Arlington will get its first hearing on Monday. The plan, from Arcadia Development, calls for demolishing the 1960s-era center and replacing it with a six-story mixed-use development.

 

Located at 3700 Riverside Dr., the one-story center is currently home to Colin’s Coffee, Figlio Wood Fired Pizza, Basil Upper Arlington, Rozor’s Edge and a post office. A summary of the proposal prepared by the city of Upper Arlington suggested that some of the existing tenants could return in the new development.

6-story replacement proposed for UA's Golden Bear Shopping Center

 

screen-shot-2019-03-07-at-42919-pm*1200x

 

"Arcadia has reduced commercial space and added a few more residential units to the planned complex, which has grown to 278,100 square feet. The building will have about 28,300 square feet of ground-floor retail and restaurant space, 33,700 square feet of second-floor office space and 112 condominium units.

 

The 75-foot-tall, E-shaped development would front Riverside Drive, and behind it would be a two-level parking garage with 427 spaces total on the site. Plans now include demolishing a bank building on the site but keeping the McDonald's and Arby's restaurants on either side."

Golden Bear Redevelopment to be Heard by Board

 

Screen-Shot-2019-03-15-at-1.32.59-PM-115

 

Arcadia Development will present its plan to redevelop the Golden Bear shopping center to the Upper Arlington Board of Zoning and Planning on March 25.

 

The proposal, which is similar to one that was presented conceptually to the board last fall, calls for a six-story, mixed-use building to replace the one-story shopping center. The existing McDonald’s restaurant (at the corner of Fishinger Road and Riverside Drive) would remain, as would the Arby’s at 3650 Riverside Dr.

I would not want to pay Upper Arlington prices only to open my window or go on my balcony to smell McDonald's and Arby's cooking. It will be interesting to see how this project evolves based on the staff memo as they're asking for a lot of variances that don't seem to be supported. I got bored and read through their zoning code and it's really good. It's pretty much everything the Columbus code should be trying to do.
