Library expansion on current site is in the works
BY JENNIFER NOBLIT, THIS WEEK NEWS
Wednesday, May 20, 2015 - 11:08 AM


The Dublin branch library will get a new building within the next few years, but it will stay put.  Columbus Metropolitan Library officials have been planning to replace the Dublin branch, which is not big enough for the demand placed upon it by its patrons. ... The Dublin branch library is currently 20,147 square feet and the plans are to increase the size to 42,500 square feet, said Ben Zenitsky, Columbus Metropolitan Library marketing and communications specialist.
( . . . )
Plans are still in the works, but Zenitsky said architects NBBJ are "exploring all options" for fitting a larger building on the current site. ... Dublin officials are working to fit the new building into the Bridge Street District vision.  During a May 11 work session, Dublin City Council members discussed the possibility of building a parking garage on the library site.

According to Terry Foegler, Dublin's director of strategic initiatives and special projects, putting a parking garage on the site would add another 200 to 250 parking spots to Historic Dublin and could cost $4.5 to $5.5 million.  "To be able to leverage the opportunity for additional parking spaces ... is significant," City Manager Dana McDaniel told council May 11.  "It would be an additional 250 spaces to support the west side of the river and the library."  Zenitsky would not confirm a parking garage for the site, but said conversations are ongoing.

Meanwhile, on the western side of the Scioto River, north of Dublin's historic downtown - demolition for the Bridge Park West development has begun.  The Bridge Park West development will include 41 condo units, 15,000 square feet of office space and 15,000 square feet of retail/restaurant space.

More about the Bridge Park construction schedule from Business First: "Construction ready to begin for first section of Bridge Park in Dublin": http://www.bizjournals.com/columbus/news/2015/06/12/construction-ready-to-begin-for-first-section-of.html



According to the above linked article, here is the construction schedule for Bridge Park as it stands now:

Block C: Approved and ready for construction.  This section consists of 93,000 square feet of office space, 43,000 square feet of restaurant space, 9,000 square feet of other retail plus 154 apartments and an 850-slot parking garage.

- The developer, Crawford Hoying, said the next six phases would have construction starts through March 2016, driven in part by market demand for the product types.  The article did mention Block B and Block A - which are the next two development blocks south of Block C along Riverside Drive to the new roundabout:

Block B: Final plans have been submitted for commission review.  That section has a fall construction start and consists of 46,000 square feet of offices, 50,000 square feet of restaurants, 13,000 square feet of retail and 218 apartments.

Block A: Won't start until later this year or spring 2016.  That section has a 150-room hotel and conference center for 500 attendees, plus another 89,000 square feet of office space and another parking garage.

Crawford Hoying ready to move on Bridge Park with Dublin deal in hand
By Brian R. Ball, Staff Reporter
Columbus Business First - Aug. 11, 2015, 4:44pm EDT


Crawford Hoying Development Partners LLC has secured an agreement with Dublin that will allow it to begin construction of its massive Bridge Park project.  “It’s the last piece needed,” Principal Brent Crawford said. “... We needed that piece to close our construction loans, which will now happen in the next few weeks.”

The public financing and development agreement unanimously passed Dublin City Council Monday night.  The deal calls for the city to contribute $43.1 million toward the construction of two parking garages and roadways for the project's initial phase, with Crawford Hoying and its investors picking up the remaining $290.5 million project cost over the next several years.

That includes $155 million for Phase 1, which will include eight buildings on 12.5 acres east of the Scioto River and the mixed-use Bridge Park West project on the other side of the river in Dublin's downtown historic district.

Dublin city manager: Bridge Park will 'set the tone' for future development
By Brian R. Ball, Staff Reporter
Columbus Business First - Aug. 12, 2015, 2:40pm EDT


The approval of a development deal for Crawford Hoying Development Partners LLC should give Dublin guidance on how to approach future projects along the city’s emerging urban corridor.

Dublin City Manager Dana McDaniel told me the city carefully crafted the deal city council approved this week to leverage $300 million in private investment during the next several years.

The city has worked on the broader Bridge Street vision for more than six years while Crawford Hoying unveiled its vision for the development in October 2013.

Dublin’s vision for walkable Bridge Street District fits with emerging trends
By Evan Weese, Staff Reporter
Columbus Business First - Aug. 14, 2015, 2:59pm EDT


Dublin’s planned Bridge Street District may become one of the country’s best examples of a suburb retrofitted for walkability, but it certainly won't be the only one.  For this week's cover story, I reported on the city's aim to woo young professionals, empty nesters and businesses by creating a walkable, urban-style corridor, starting with the massive Bridge Park mixed-use development spanning both sides of the Scioto River.

City leaders told me they are responding to a demographic shift that will see most growth from singles living alone and households without children, on both ends of the age spectrum.  It’s a trend most cities and suburbs are recognizing, said Ed McMahon, a senior research fellow at the Urban Land Institute, a nonprofit advocating for sustainable land use.

^ The above blog post references last Friday's Business First cover story about Dublin's Bridge Street District.  The full article will be behind a paywall for the next month.  But here's an excerpt that gives you the gist of that article - which touches on development density, evolving office location trends, and the impact of older empty-nesters and younger non-nesters on future residential demand:

The hip new Dublin – city poised to add an urban touch in a generational change
By Evan Weese, Staff Reporter
Columbus Business First - Aug. 14, 2015, 6:00am EDT


Dublin has been the epitome of an American suburb for more than 40 years, and a successful one at that.  The tony community quickly sprawled northwest of the Columbus outerbelt in the 1970s as housing developments sprouted around Jack Nicklaus’ famed Muirfield Village Golf Club and businesses put stakes down with new buildings and highway frontage.

Dublin continues thriving, with 14,000 households commanding median income of $113,000 and 3,000 businesses calling it home. ... But it’s time for a change of pace.

The city’s quaint historic downtown along High Street and an underperforming strip center across the Scioto River to the northeast are being overhauled into a dense, walkable district of shops, restaurants, offices and residences.  It is part of a master plan that developers and city leaders say is necessary if Dublin hopes to remain competitive over the next half-century amid a nationwide shift in demographics, household formation and business location trends.

Dublin really could set the tone for future suburban development in outer-belt Columbus.  And yes, I know Bridge Park is technically inner-belt but you know what I mean!

Crawford Hoying: 1st phase of Dublin's Bridge Park could open in a year
By Evan Weese, Staff Reporter, Columbus Business First
Updated: Sept. 16, 2015, 7:16am EDT


Dublin officials, Crawford Hoying Development Partners LLC employees and others gathered Tuesday to mark the city’s Bridge Park “groundbreaking,” a term used loosely as heavy trucks were rolling by during the event, moving plenty of ground.  The first phase of developer Crawford Hoying’s $350 million mixed-use development along Riverside Drive is well underway.

150-room, upscale hotel to anchor convention portion of Bridge Park in Dublin



An upscale AC Hotel by Marriott could anchor the convention and hospitality section of the Bridge Park mixed-use project at Route 161 and Riverside Drive in Dublin.

Developer Crawford Hoying Development Partners' expected choice of the AC flag marks the second time in six weeks that an area developer has formally selected the upscale Marriott International Inc. (NYSE:MAR) brand for a Central Ohio project.

Another hotel approved along Bridge Street.  But its not in the "Bridge Street District" area east of the Scioto River.  This one is in the Bridge Street/Rt. 33/SR 161 area between the historic downtown and the Rt. 33/I-270 intersection - location map.  Rendering from http://www.indushotels.com/NewProjects.aspx and http://www.indushotels.com/Home2Suites.aspx:



Home2 Suites, offices are coming to Salvi's Bistro site
Four-story, 80,481-square-foot hotel and two-story, 14,000-square-foot office building are planned
BY JENNIFER NOBLIT, THIS WEEK COMMUNITY NEWS
Wednesday, August 5, 2015 - 9:56 PM


The former Salvi's Bistro will soon be demolished to make way for a hotel.  Dublin developer Crawford Hoying got the OK last week for the demolition of the former restaurant at 5000 Upper Metro Place.

Last Thursday, July 30, the Administrative Review Team approved the teardown and forwarded to the Dublin Planning and Zoning Commission a development plan for a new four-story, 129-suite hotel at the 2.57-acre site, which sits on the west side of Frantz Road, south of state Route 161.
( . . . )
Along with an 80,481-square-foot hotel, a two-story, 14,000-square-foot office building also is planned for a future phase.  Crawford Hoying is proposing to build 122 parking spaces to service the site.  According to information in the plans, the hotel will be a Hilton brand: Home2 Suites.

Inside the Grand of Dublin, a nursing home designed to get people out of bed – PHOTOS
By Carrie Ghose, Staff Reporter - Columbus Business First
October 9, 2015, 4:46pm EDT


People who recently toured the massive Grand of Dublin nursing home and senior living complex likened it to an indoor Easton Town Center, or even Disneyland.  The first residents move in to the Vrable HealthCare Co. complex on Oct. 23, after some eight years of planning, permits, zoning, plus construction delays during two brutal Central Ohio winters.
( . . . )
The Grand of the title applies in both luxury finishes throughout and the scale: The 133,000-square-foot complex is built as five separate buildings connected under a single roof, enclosing a replica town square including pharmacy, salon, theater, chapel, general store and ice cream parlor.  There's even a small replica of Vrable's former Digger & Finch Pub, which had to be torn down as part of street relocations surrounding the Grand and the Bridge Park development under construction immediately to the south.

Big Sandy Superstore buys site in Dublin, plans to open in the spring
By Brian R. Ball, Staff Reporter - Columbus Business First
November 16, 2015, 2:55pm EST


Big Sandy Superstore has completed its purchase of the long-vacant BJ’s Wholesale Club site in Dublin. ... Big Sandy Chairman Robert Van Hoose Jr. confirmed the household furnishing’s retailer had closed on the 109,958-square-foot retail space at 6825 Dublin Center Drive.

The move of the retailer of appliances, electronics, furniture and mattresses should further bolster the comeback of the adjacent Dublin Village Center.  In fact, Hoose said that center's revival during the last year proved a big selling point for Big Sandy.  “We think Dublin Village Center is poised to make a comeback with the (city of Dublin’s) redevelopment of the Bridge Street District,” Hoose said in reference to the redevelopment corridor from Sawmill Road to Frantz Road.

Dublin’s proposed Riverside Park to offer ice skating, rock climbing, river access



Dublin is showing off a final draft of plans for a $44 million Riverside Park that would bring outdoor ice skating, rock climbing and kayak access points to the heart of the city.

Stretching along both sides of the Scioto River, the park would anchor the suburb’s walkable Bridge Street District with public plazas and outdoor activities all tied together by an iconic pedestrian bridge.

Condos and retail eyed in new Bridge Street District project in downtown Dublin
By Evan Weese, Staff Reporter - Columbus Business First
Updated: March 7, 2016, 2:39pm EST


Dublin’s Bridge Street District may be getting another large mixed-use development.  A group of investors has acquired the site of several ranch-style homes and a Sunoco gas station at Bridge Street and Monterey Drive, with plans to redevelop the 6.2-acre site with a mix of retail and residential components.

Scott Walker, owner of Olympus Homes Inc., said he and his fellow investors in Dublin Development LLC are weighing options for what they’re calling Monterey at Bridge Street. ... Dublin Development paid $3.78 million for 12 parcels making up the site, according to three separate transactions recorded by the Franklin County auditor.  Walker said he and two Nashville-based investors plan to use the entire site for the mixed-use development, from the Sunoco at 201 W. Bridge Street to Monterey Park on the southern edge.  It would stretch west to a neighboring Marathon service station on Bridge Street that's not a part of the project and east to the Dublin Cemetery.

Although a more detailed proposal is expected by year’s end, the developers know they want to include luxury condominiums on the southern portion of the site and a retail component facing Bridge Street. ... "In the last few years there have been different folks who have looked at this site," said Terry Foegler, Dublin's director of strategic initiatives.  "What’s encouraging now is there seems to be a developer ... that has gone ahead and taken the risk to close on key expensive sites.  It's the first real expansion of the Bridge Street District west of the historic downtown," he said.
