Proposal for Long Street Downtown Calls for 234 Apartments



A new proposal presented to the Downtown Commission this morning would bring an additional 234 residential units to the East Long Street corridor downtown.

The six-story building would take the place of a large surface parking lot at 230 E. Long St., between North Fifth and Neilston streets.

Seeing as how the Neilston is nearing completion and the 6th street mews have sold out, I wonder when Edwards will begin construction on the next phase of townhomes?

The parking lot between the last phase of Bishop's Walk on Gay St. and The Neilston has been dug up so I'd have to think that's the next development. But I never saw news about what they plan to put in there. Are they putting in another round of Mews or townhouses?

^Good news that it's already dug up! I haven't been by there in a while.

And yep, it will be another phase of the 'mews' style townhomes, basically extending the 6th street project all the way through the site.

For what and where it is, I actually like it a lot. The design is very Dutch contemporary, and fits well with this part of downtown IMO

I like it, and it is a height and density increase to eight floors.  I hope they use good materials for the facade.

I think it's interesting that the developer is from out-of-state. Our local developer's good old boy club is going to have a bit more competition.  :)

They also chose an out-of-state developer for the Scioto Peninsula, but in that case I wish they hadn't.  Their design is so painfully dull and too short.  Way too safe when the local designs were actually better and had more varied height levels.

^ Always like to see aerial views of that Neighborhood Launch development.  With the 6th Street Mews project starting, the only remaining spots left open are the future Mews project across Normandy from it and the northeast corner of Gay & 6th.  There was a five-story modern loft-type building proposed for Gay & 6th about 5 years ago.

The recent Dispatch article about the downtown apartment boom also had a video showing drone views of some of the projects:  http://www.dispatch.com/news/20180225/downtown-sees-flood-of-new-apartment-buildings

Here are a couple of drone views of the finished Neilston and Normandy apartment buildings as seen from East Long Street:

Work begins on high-end Downtown condo project

Work has begun on the first phase of a Downtown condo development behind Hills Market.

The Mews II – mews is another word for a carriage house – has begun initial ground work. The 28-unit urban redevelopment will go up on a surface parking lot on Grant Avenue between 6th and Normandy streets.

Inside the newest downtown apartments on Long Street

The latest addition to Long Street is nearing completion.

The Lear Block, 288 E. Long St. at the corner of 6th Avenue, is the latest residential project by developer Don DeVere, with work "about 95 percent done" to convert the two buildings into 26 loft apartments with ground-floor parking. After about two years of work, the first resident has moved in and the developer is looking to lease out the remaining units.

"The prospects we've seen like the grit in the buildings," DeVere said during a walk-through Thursday.

First Look: Lear Block

The latest apartment project to open downtown features one- and two-bedroom units heavy on charm and historic details. The Lear Block – located at 288 E. Long St., but with a second entrance at 145 N. Sixth St. – is the result of an extensive renovation from local developer Don DeVere.

The oldest part of the L-shaped structure was built in 1910 to hold the Oscar Lear Automobile Company. Although the Long Street frontage of the building likely held a show room at one point, most of the square footage was dedicated to production – cars were made there, and could be moved from floor to floor via a huge freight elevator.

The aluminum panels on the building at Long and 4th have been removed revealing nice stone and brickwork.

Latest Phase of Neighborhood Launch Proposed



The latest phase of the Edwards Companies’ seven-and-a-half-acre Neighborhood Launch development could be described as a two-unit residential project, but that wouldn’t really do it justice.

One of those units is a three-story townhouse similar in size and design to the buildings that currently line Gay Street, but the other is a large single-family home with a three-car garage that is surrounded by a pool, a series of formal gardens and a two-story guesthouse. The guesthouse is connected to the main house through a basement level that extends the length of the property.

I'm sure there is a certain buyer/client behind this... I wonder who it is
