A Proposed 15-Story Tower In Franklinton Will Add Hundreds Of Residential Units To The Neighborhood

Plans for The Mondrian by Berardi + Partners.

A proposed 15-story development could bring 200+ residential units to Franklinton.

The parcels at 567-595 W. Broad Street will be connected together to house a large, 15-story mixed use building called the Mondrian. The Mondrian will be roughly 300,000 square feet, combining existing historic properties on the site with a new modern tower.

The tower would be 166 feet tall and would include over 17,000 square feet of commercial space, 206 residential units, and a three-story parking garage with enough space for 219 vehicles. The top level of the parking garage would also serve as an amenity deck for Mondrian residents.

On the top floor of the tower, there will be a signature restaurant with sweeping views of downtown Columbus.

Some existing historic structures will be incorporated into the new structure.

The L-shaped tower will include affordable housing. There will be 56 studio units, 98 one-bedroom units, and 52 two-bedroom units. The plan is for 70% of the units to be affordable to those making 80-100% of the area median income.

The exterior of the building will have brightly colored panels, inspired by Dutch artist Piet Mondrian. The initial proposal called the new building The Mondrian in honor of him.

In order to move forward, the architecture of the tower will have to be approved by the East Franklinton Review Board. If all goes according to plan, the development would break ground in 2022.

The project joins a variety of new structures in Franklinton, including the massive Scioto Peninsula project that aims to bring add a variety of new businesses and residents to the area.
