Grogan Yard 11th avenue to 13th avenue


The Ohio State University Knowlton School of Architecture CRPLAN 6930 - NeighborPlanStudio Christopher Will

Grogan Yard NEIGHBORHOOD REDEVELOPMENT PLAN Challenges: Once part of the Grogan Yard and used for the storage of railcars transporting coal, this area is known presently as the 'Four Corners' and 'Point of Pride', The plan study area is located in the southern reach of Greater Linden. Bound by 1-71 to the west, Norfolk Southern railroad to the south, a vacated railway to the east and South Linden residential neighborhoods to the north, this area is plagued by poor connectivity, incompatible land uses, and deteriorating urban form which has resulted in poor sense of place and quality of life.

Opportunities: Development pressure for apartments in nearby neighborhoods is rising as many of the expected 1-million additional residents Central Ohio is projected to gain by 2050 desire urban living. Additionally, the site's location along Cleveland Avenue is serviced by CMAX enhanced bus service with potential for future long range high-capacity transit further enhances the redevelopment potential.

Grogan’s Green V

Vision and Strategies: Past plans have been limited in creativity and the scale needed to reimagine this area for significant change. Through urban design principles this plan reimagines the built form of the area in an effort to improve the quality of place and quality of life. Significant components to the program include: the realignment of 11th Avenue's intersection with Cleveland Avenue, remediation of the former Grogan Rail Yard into a 26-acre park providing recreational and open space amenities to urban residents, redevelopment of a 14-acre portion of the Rosewind development, and other significant redevelopment of opportunities.

The 650-foot section of 11th Avenue between Cleveland and St Clair Avenues is a 24' local service street with a collection of 1 1/2 to 2-story single family detached homes. To accommodate the realignment of 11th Avenue with Bonham, the 650' section should be closed to vehicular traffic and replaced with a greenway. Driveway access from 11th is very limited and most parking is provided from back alleys or other off-street parking. 22 single-family homes would remain with an additional 8 townhomes added.

Rosewind is a 230-unit community with 160 townhouses and 70 single-family homes and is associated with the Columbus Metropolitan Housing Authority (CMHA) which helps people access affordable housing. The 38-acre community constructed in 1996 replaced another publicly subsidized community and was financed with a combination of Hope VI funds and 4% Low Income Housing Tax Credit according to CMHA. Rosewind was developed with suburban design principle, curvilinear streets, large blocks, and buildings which are oriented away from public streets. To rethread urban fabric, the 14-acre portion of Rosewind south of Chittenden Avenue, including 116 townhomes should be redeveloped with 177 mixed-income units including a mix of attached and detached single family homes, townhomes, and walk-up apartments. Located only 1-mile southwest in the Italian Village, New Village Place is a 100-unit development affiliated with CMHA offering mixed income 1, 2, and 3 bedroom lofts and townhomes. The building typology and block plan in New Village Place creates built form which is more appropriate for its location and should be used as a benchmark for the redevelopment of Rosewind.
