The approximately 585,000 sq. ft. newly constructed development will create an iconic visual accent at the southern end of the existing Greenway and a signature visual “moment” appropriate to the view of commuters and visitors arriving in Boston.
The exciting, new mixed-use development project located in East Franklinton, runs along the Scioto River and recently completed Scioto Greenways. The trade area boasts a high daytime demographic of 119,161 with 39.9% of residents living and working within the trade area, traveling less than 14 minutes to work. Phase I of the project includes +/- 24,000 square-feet of ground floor retail along Rich Street, a 300-space parking garage and over 200 residential units. The two larger buildings, designed by Moody Nolan, face Rich Street. These mixed use buildings include a concrete podium and wood construction above it. The residential units are designed to incorporate large windows and industrial looking balconies that create interest and populate the public streets. The lower level of the buildings incorporate live work units that will open to the street with local artist artifacts and other type of unique businesses.
Together with Encova Realty (formerly Motorists), Moody Nolan developed an overall master development plan with diverse real estate holdings in the Topiary Park neighborhood and near the Encova corporate headquarters. The development creates a vibrant community tied to surrounding neighborhoods and businesses and increase the overall aesthetic appeal of the east side and Topiary Park. Reinforcing this idea, Moody Nolan leveraged the aesthetics and style of Topiary Park as a unique Columbus City landmark and neighborhood identifier. The goal of the master development plan is to develop a consolidated and cohesive campus that provides a neighborhood with convenient amenities to residents and company employees.
Sitting on the east bank of the Scioto River in downtown Dublin, Ohio, the design provides an interesting, walkable setting for urban lifestyles that places value on human scale and a diversity of experiences. In partnership with Crawford Hoying Development, Moody Nolan is serving as the Architect-of-Record and providing design services for this multi-building, mixed-use development.
