Groundbreaking for the second hotel in Crawford Hoying's Bridge Park development is expected to happen in the coming weeks, according to Ted Orr, director of development experience with Crawford Hoying.
The 145-unit, six-floor hotel will be built on Bridge Park Avenue, and Orr said the facility is projected to open in summer 2020.
The hotel is one example of the recent construction in the Bridge Park development. Work being done now is expected to lay the groundwork for more restaurant and entertainment options and a permanent indoor public market.
That market is slated to go in Bridge Park's next block of development -- four buildings that will sit between Tuller Ridge and John Shields Parkway from south to north, and Riverside Drive and Mooney Street from west to east.
Orr said the buildings would be a mix of residential units that would be a combination of for rent and for sale, as well as commercial office and retail and restaurant space. Those buildings are expected to come online spring 2020, he said.
As the Bridge Park development continues, more options for food and drink are expected as well.
One of those, Condado Tacos, opened in early March at 102 N. High St.
REBoL, which features organic, non-GMO bowls, tacos and broths, is set to open in early summer at the southeast corner of Park Avenue and Longshore Street, Orr said.
The restaurant also has a location in Cleveland. This will be its first location in central Ohio.
Other food and entertainment venues coming on deck include the Pearl and No Soliciting.
The Pearl is Cameron Mitchell Restaurants' newest offering in the Bridge Park development. It is slated to open in the fall at 88 N. High St.
No Soliciting, a private, members-only bourbon bar from Rise Brands, will be accessible via private elevator next to the Pearl.
Both entities, Rise Brands and Cameron Mitchell, have other establishments in the Bridge Park development: The former has opened Pins Mechanical Co. and 16-Bit Bar + Arcade, and the latter has opened Cap City Diner, the Avenue Steak Tavern and the Exchange at Bridge Park.
