Took a walk around Hubbard Park Place today. The office portion of the building is about half way to its final height. Won't be long before the townhouses along Park and Hubbard begin to rise.

The townhomes along Park of Hubbard Park Place are beginning to be framed. The office tower is topped out.

Developers behind Manhattan-inspired High Street project start tenant search



The stairways were installed at the Hubbard Park Place in the Short North last week. This week, developers are starting to look for tenants.

With 101 apartments and 12,000 square feet of office space, they aim to fill an eye-catching seven-story development – one of the taller new buildings in the neighborhood.

Took a walk during lunch today. I like the scale of this project along Hubbard and Park pictured below. Scaffolding was being delivered so I imagine we'll begin to see the finish materials pretty soon.

I absolutely HATED this when it was proposed, mainly because of the scale.  Now that the structure itself is complete, I have to eat crow because I like it :).

This is a VAST improvement on the street level and much more fitting for the neighborhood.

I think I preferred the very front of the building in the initial plan, but overall I definitely prefer this update. It fits with neighborhood much better. The initial plan would have been much better for the River South district downtown.

I took a walk around Hubbard Park Place today. Crews are starting to install exterior finishes. It will be interesting to see how it all comes together.

From the park.


The tile looks nice.

The latest I read for this is that it's up to 10 stories, at least in the latest commission notes.

Kaufman Development has submitted an updated proposal for the IBEW site which is in the residential portion of the neighborhood between Price and 2nd near but not on High St. The proposal appears to provide adequate parking and preserves a good portion of the original IBEW buildings. However, the massing and height are substantial and will dramatically impact the residential portion of the neighborhood including several single family homes that abut the development.

The tallest part of the project will be 180 ft (14 stories) making it by far the tallest structure in the Short North. For comparison:
 711 N. High (under construction) = 144.8 feet
 Bollinger Tower = 142.04 feet
 The Jackson = 110 feet
 White Castle = 103.6 feet
 Hubbard Park Place = 84 feet

The Victorian Village Commission will consider this proposal at their meeting on Thursday April 12th, 6 pm at the new Michael Coleman Government Center, 111 N Front St.

^ Wow! I think this is going to be very controversial, but I'm personally a fan based on what I can see here. The height is definitely going to be a huge issue for some people I have to imagine.

Also, where did you get those heights for all of the other buildings?

As a resident of the neighborhood, I follow the Short North Civic Association FB page.  These were quoted there...

Wow! Kaufman is not backing down like Woods did at the Grandview Mercantile site.

800 N High will probably be 130-150 feet tall.

I love this development. They have made pretty drastic changes to the renderings over the course of the proposal, but I think they've landed in a good spot scale-wise and aesthetic-wise. It is very tall, but they've made a good use of setbacks and stepping back from the traditional residential housing. Also, you have to consider that, to keep getting downtown views, with taller and taller buildings going up right along High Street, we are going to be seeing more height from these newer proposals. Also, we are seeing less empty and parking lots available for development in the Short (and growing taller) North so the density is going to be going up with each new development proposal we see. I'm excited for this one and hopefully it gets the height and encourages other developers to follow suit.

Correct. I knew Woods didn't sound right, and the only other one that came to mind was Edwards and I knew it wasn't them. Disappointing from Pizzuti. They were the original pushers of height with Le Meridien and the Joseph. And they backed down QUICK. I feel like the Kaufman project was initially announced not long after the Grandview Mercantile project, and here they are going in with a taller proposal!

Well, I hope it comes true but, as always, this will be Village'd and may be a height of...80 feet :D!

Someone needs to send that height info to places like Emporis.  And I really hope this goes through and helps break down the stupid "too high...we will never see the sun..think of the children!!!!" view that some have about structures along the most important street in the city.

Wow wasn't expecting that kind of design revision for the Kaufman project. But if they can get approval for it, I'd love to see it built

And glad to see the awning marquee for the Garden moving forward too. It's crazy how much is happening along High St

I think peoples' issues aren't with the height itself, it's that this height is not on High St and is set back.  Now you can argue the Park St. development(which I hated initially and now love) is showing us this can be done properly.  However it's nearly half it's height.  If this building was going on the plot of land where the Wood Cos plaza sits then I would have ZERO issues with it.  However it's sitting in-between one VERY narrow residential street and one "normal" sized residential street.  Access is the main issue I have with this because it is going to lead to more and more congestion.  I am and I encourage folks that live in the neighborhood to attend the parking meeting tomorrow morning or Thursday to voice your opinions.

I think it is close enough to High-the 14 story part will start only about 150 feet back. You are just being a NIMBY!  ;)

*of course I don't have to deal with the parking and congestion issues....but never mind about that..lol.

Updated Short North Development Proposal Grows to 14 Stories

The latest proposal revision from Kaufman Development for their “IBEW” Victorian Village project on Price Avenue has grown in height once again. When the mixed-use project was first announced in July 2016, it was envisioned with a maximum height of 10-stories. It was later redesigned and shortened to nine stories, which was actually approved by the Victorian Village Commission at their March 2017 meeting.

Typically, that approval means that the project is ready to move forward, but this one actually returned to the Commission in December 2017 with an updated architectural style. Kaufman Development CEO Brett Kaufman stated that the company made the changes “…so that we have something that really functions, and that we can build – that we can afford to build and get financed – and that works in the market.”
