“Buckingham’s experience creating vibrant new neighborhoods is a natural match for the impressive vision that Columbus has for the Scioto Peninsula,” Scott Travis, senior vice president of development for Buckingham, said in press release.
The project is also looking to incorporate the personality and flair of the Franklinton neighborhood, by working with local business owners and artists.
The hotel will have 171 guestrooms, 4,000 square feet of meeting space, and two food & beverage outlets. Additionally, the ground floor of the hotel will be extended out to North High Street, in order to offer retail space.
Construction on the Graduate Hotel in Columbus will begin this Spring.
The building will be home to residences, as well as retail and commercial spaces. The proposed timeline for this build is ambitious. After breaking ground in early 2018, the building is slated for partial occupancy by fall 2019.
River & Rich
Builders, planners, and even the Mayor broke ground at River & Rich in East Franklinton last spring. Although the plans for River & Rich have been in the works for years, residents have actually been able to see this development come to life.
The 6-acre site will now be home to 230 one and two bedroom apartments, both garden and townhouse style. In addition to housing, River & Rich will also provide a 292 space parking garage and 25,000 sq. feet of retail space.
The first buildings in the project are nearly completed, with an expected finish date of early summer 2018.
Crawford Hoying and Marriott International Inc. are teaming up to bring a new, 118-room hotel to the Short North.
Located at 800 N. High Street, the 10 story building will include the Moxy Hotel, a ground floor restaurant, office space, and a rooftop bar. Since parking is always on everyone’s mind when it comes to the Short North, it should be noted that the Moxy Hotel will be valet only.
