Pizzuti to Begin Apartment Redevelopment Project in Columbus, Ohio
COLUMBUS, OHIO — The Pizzuti Cos. has purchased the former Grant Oak Apartments in Columbus and is scheduled to begin construction immediately on the redevelopment of the site. Located at the southeast corner of Grant Avenue and Oak Street in the Discovery District, the project will include a combination of renovation work, new construction and site improvements. Phase I will include a renovation of the four westernmost buildings and will result in 70 market-rate studio and one-bedroom units. Completion is slated for spring 2020.
Phase II will include a new-construction, five-story building with a mix of studio, one- and two-bedroom units. The 80-unit property will include walk-up units along Oak and 9th streets. Pizzuti expects to break ground on Phase II in the fall with completion slated for late summer 2020.
Sullivan Bruck Architects oversaw the design of the renovated portion and Lupton Rausch Architects Inc. designed the new-construction building. Elford Inc. will serve as the general contractor on both portions of the project.
