Springfield parking garage closer to reality



A long-sought-after parking garage for downtown Springfield is looking hopeful after some of the funding for the idea has landed in the Ohio budget.

The garage would help provide parking as several downtown employers have upped their presence and number of employees. It has been a high priority for economic development officials who see it as essential to supporting the continued growth of major downtown sites like Clark State Community College and Ohio Valley Surgical Hospital, who have cited a need for more parking as they bring people into the city.

Hospital sparks resurgence in downtown Springfield

It was a new hospital that led to a much healthier downtown Springfield.

“What was the catalyst and continues to be a catalyst was clearing property for the construction of Springfield Regional Medical Center,” said Tom Franzen, assistant city manager and economic development director. “Clearing blight to recreate a 50-acre area is an opportunity not many communities get in a lifetime. We made a decision as a community that we were going to fight for the hospital to be downtown, knowing it would really turn the tide.”
...
The city is completing the financing for construction of a new 460-space, four-story public parking garage. New housing options and locally owned businesses also are opening downtown.

Some of these new options are putting once-vacant buildings back into productive use. For example, family-owned microbrewery Mother Stewart’s Brewing Company will include a tasting room and outdoor beer garden. It will open soon in the heart of downtown.

That's great! I toured the new hospital after it first opened and it's a huge improvement in terms of navigation and logistics over the old hospitals (both since torn down).

Edward Wren Company building receives $2 million



Elsewhere in the Miami Valley, two other area projects were granted Ohio Preservation Historic Tax Credits. The Edward Wren Company building in downtown Springfield, located at 31 E. High St., was granted $2 million.

The Edward Wren building was first built in 1921 as a department store and bank, and later became a warehouse and office space before falling vacant. The building has been empty for many years and was nearly demolished.

It looks like Springfield has almost torn down its entire core to create parking, but they need to build another parking garage? Springfield: Nothing to do or see, and no reason to visit, but parking is a breeze!

Historic Springfield building to be transformed into commercial, co-working space



A historic building that was once a thriving marketplace in downtown Springfield is getting a revival.

Myers Market, located at 101 S. Fountain Ave., will be turned into a mixed-use facility that is set to include a year-round farmers' market, shared commercial kitchen, food hall and co-working space for entrepreneurs.

The project is a joint effort between SpringForward, a private equity organization focused on the redevelopment of downtown Springfield, and COhatch, a Columbus group that helps establish co-working, event and office space for businesses and individuals.
