Back in August we first learned of developer Wood Companies proposal to build a mixed-use building, dubbed ‘The Brunner,’ on N High St in the Short North.

The site for the 5-story retail and residential project is on the East side of High just north of E 1st Ave, in between Donatos Pizza and RocketFizz Candy Shop. Currently, it’s home to two non-descript single story mid-century buildings.

Since the initial announcement in August, the two businesses which occupied those existing structures, The Co+Op Shop and Flora Home and Garden, have both closed or relocated.

Now, it appears the proposal has moved closer to reality and is set to soon begin construction.

Plans submitted to the City of Columbus show the developer is seeking to start demolition of both buildings currently on-site, and begin excavation and foundation work for the new 5-story structure.

In total, the new building would contain around 4,000 sqft of ground floor retail space, 24 apartments on the next three floors, and 2 penthouse units along with a residents’ amenity deck on the top level.

Parking would be provided in a concealed at and below-grade deck accessed from Pearl Alley.

The exterior design of the building, (shown in the rendered elevation above), is intended to emulate and evoke the traditional language of the many historic brick buildings which line N High St through the neighborhood.

This approach contrasts with the more contemporary design being pursued across the street at the site of Borror Properties proposed White Castle redevelopment.

Both projects are located in the midst of a flurry of other recent and proposed development also happening in the Short North – including the FireproofStonehenge Cos. micro apartments, and the Wood Cos Parkside on Pearl and Hubbard Park Place projects.

    This is the type of building we should be having more of in the Short North! Not things like the modern monstrosity proposed for White Castle across the street!

    Preserve the historic character of the neighborhood!

      Jessica, we’re the 15th largest city in the country, and growing. High St is our main corridor.

      There are going to new buildings. There are going to be larger buildings. And these should be edgy, modern designs that reflect the time we live in.

      Point is, we’re a big city. Get over it!

      If you wan’t to live in a historical park, move to the Ohio Village.
