Edwards Cos. plans 14 more downtown housing units



Edwards Cos. has signaled its intent to build even more housing as part of its Neighborhood Launch condo and apartment community.

The developer's Eclipse Real Estate Group division has filed an application with the city's Downtown Commission for the 0.41-acre development site in the middle of the North Sixth Street block that backs up against the Hills Market at 95 N. Grant Ave. The project involves 14 units.

More below:
http://www.bizjournals.com/columbus/blog/2015/02/edwards-cos-plans-14-more-downtown-housing-units.html

The first picture here shows the site of this small condo development on 6th. Recently the pavement there was removed so hopefully we are seeing the start of construction.

The pictures after that show that interesting side condo that crosses the alley in the second phase of Bishops Walk.

The last pictures are of the new storage building.

Yeesh. That rendering of the storage building is pretty dreadful.

Great to see everything else progressing though. I really like those little condos that bridge over the alleys in this development.

Yeah, but I never expected much for a storage building. Hopefully the lots on each side of it will be developed and the storage building will become one of those buildings you just don't really notice when you pass. I'm also glad one more surface parking lot disappears.

CU had an earlier conceptual rendering of the storage building at http://www.columbusunderground.com/neighborhood-launch-plans-to-add-six-story-storage-building.  I think the final version that Eridony posted is improved with the brick added to the Long Street pedestrian front - but otherwise this rendering fairly accurately shows the storage building's impact on Long Street.



Fortunately, only the short side of the storage building faces Long Street.  And the construction of the six-story Neilston apartment building (which is next to the finished six-story Normandy apartment building) will help conceal the much plainer long side of the building. --- The other long side of the building is already partially blocked from the busier Fourth Street with the previously built five-level parking garage and the previously existing two-story Telhio Credit Union building.  But building something at the Fourth & Long corner parking lot would conceal it better.

The six-story self-storage building is finished at 195 E. Long Street.  This was not built by the Neighborhood Launch developer (Edwards) but it is directly adjacent to NL.  Business First has a slideshow of the exterior and interior of the Tri-Village Self Storage building that was built by Brexton LLC, just after it opened in May:  http://www.bizjournals.com/columbus/blog/2016/05/first-look-long-street-self-storage-facility.html

Here one of the exterior views of the six-story self-storage building from the corner of 4th & Long looking southeast.  IMO, it looks better than the project rendering (which, unfortunately, is not huge praise).  And it goes without saying that this 21st-century warehouse building doesn't have the character of its 19th-century counterpart.  But it is a decently handled background structure that serves a vital need for the many new residents moving downtown:


View from the Long Street sidewalk looking east toward part of the Neighborhood Launch development.  Visible in the background is the recently completed five-story 130-unit Normandy apartment building and the construction site for an identical 130-unit Neilston apartment building.  According to the Business First article, the Tri-Village Self-Storage building has over 700 storage units of varying sizes available throughout its six above-ground levels which are accessible 6 a.m. to midnight.  But the building also includes a below-grade wine-storage cellar.  This part of the building has a separate side storefront (shown in the previous photo) that has a testing lounge with 24-hour access to the wine-storage cellar, accessible only by fingerprint scanner: http://www.bizjournals.com/columbus/blog/2016/05/first-look-long-street-self-storage-facility.html

Some more May 2016 construction updates on Neighborhood Launch, this time from http://www.columbusunderground.com/construction-roundup-may-edition:

The five-story 130-unit Neilston apartment building construction site, as viewed from Long Street looking southwest.  The previously mentioned Tri-Village Self-Storage building is visible to the right in the background:


Couple of views of the five-story 130-unit Neilston apartment building construction site from a side street (Fifth Street).  This is near Fifth & Long with the recently completed identical 130-unit Normandy apartment building in the background:


This view is also from Fifth Street, but further south and closer to Gay Street.  One of the buildings that pre-existed the Neighborhood Launch development is visible to the right.  To the left, but not visible in this photo, is an earlier three-story townhouse phase of NL:

New 28-Unit Condo Development Proposed Downtown

The build-out continues of Neighborhood Launch, the Edwards Companies’ seven-and-a-half-acre residential development in Downtown Columbus.

With construction wrapping up on the first phase of Sixth Street Mews — a 13-unit condo project that sits just south of The Welsh community center — plans for phase two have been submitted to the Downtown Commission.

For those who enjoy history and old photos of the area, I ran across this photo below of the Normandie Hotel at 259 E. Long St. The comments from the facebook group are as follows - "The Normandie Hotel originally opened in 1891 but suffered a large fire on September 4, 1907. The rebuilt hotel opened on April 1, 1908 and closed on September 29, 1970 and was razed. The old hotel was considered haunted by some". The New Normandy Apartment building now resides on that location.

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.
