I don't like the big reduction in commercial space.

The revised plans for the Olympic Swim Club development are coming before the Clintonville Area Commission on Thursday, May 7.  In anticipation of a large crowd, the CAC has moved the meeting to a larger venue:

And that's that.

Olympic apartment, retail project in Clintonville gets final OK



The project replacing the former Olympic Swim Club in Clintonville has gotten its final zoning approval.

Columbus City Council on Monday unanimously approved the zoning for developer Kyle Katzís plan for 114 apartments and 5,000 square feet of street-level retail, ending a year-long saga for the 3450 Indianola Ave. site.

The original proposal was better IMO, but I'm glad this is finally happening. Now we only need about a dozen more projects like this along Indianola...

It looks like the apartment building that will be replacing the Olympic Swim Club has some updated renderings and a new name: The Deco.

The old facebook page still has the old name in the url:  https://www.facebook.com/theolympicapartments/.  But it's now titled "The Deco" and has a link to a new website for the project: http://livethedeco.com/

It's funny they put the pool up to the street on Indianola.  Nice little homage.

New name, updated look for Olympic project in Clintonville

The apartment-and-retail complex on the site of the former Olympic Swim Club in Clintonville has a new branding.

With groundbreaking this week, developers announced a name change and released updated renderings of the project, which had been known as the Olympic through more than 16 months of planning.

Plum forgot about this separate thread for Olympic Swim Club apartment development (aka The Deco).  So here's the construction photo from the Clintonville thread:

^ A little more about this Indianola road diet/bike lane project from the Dispatch:

This article had a photo of the The Deco apartment building under construction just south of the proposed Vision apartment project (which is #2 on the above posted map).  More construction photos of The Deco (formerly called The Olympic Apartments) are available on the project's facebook page at https://www.facebook.com/theolympicapartments/:

Looks nice.  We have a couple old apartments like that in Cincinnati; unfortunately the one in Hyde Park was torn down about 4 years ago for condos.
