Almost 10 acres on West Goodale Boulevard in Grandview Heights would be transformed into a residential, office and restaurant complex under a proposal announced last week.
The development would be built at 799-913 W. Goodale Blvd., on the south side of the street across from the Grandview Yard development.
Elford Development of Columbus is teaming with the land owner, Tri-W Group, for the project.
Tri-W formerly was affiliated with the W.W. Williams Co., the century-old heavy equipment repair company located on the site and now owned by One Equity Partners.
Elford President Mike Fitzpatrick and Tri-W President David French said the project is in its planning phases, but partners envision a mix of buildings and uses on the site.
“We’re looking at a combination of ground-level retail and restaurant, some offices and some multifamily, with shared parking,” Fitzpatrick said. “It’s exciting for us to have such a large site and in such a great area.”
Fitzpatrick and French said they have not determined whether any buildings now on the site, including the W.W. Williams building, will remain.
“We are exploring all options and will know more over time,” French said.
Fitzpatrick said he expected the buildings to be three to five stories tall, similar to other new projects in the area.
“We’re really getting ready to start working with the city of Grandview to begin that sort of planning,” he said.
French said no time frame has been set for construction but “we are hopeful to start sometime in 2018.”
