0 E Whittier – Pizzuti Development

Pizzuti Companies has filed a zoning request with the City of Columbus to being the process of redevelopment at the Giant Eagle site in Schumacher Place (Jaeger & Whittier). The German Village Society is working proactively with the Schumacher Place Civic Association and the Merion Village Association to ensure that the resulting development is an appropriate and positive design for all three affected neighborhoods.

We agree with the Schumacher Place Civic Association that we would support a project that follows the guidelines set forth in the City’s own planning documents – South Side Area Plan and/or C2P2 – particularly those related to density, scale, and parking.

McGown Hotel Development Wickford Holdings has proposed a hotel for a site at Livingston & City Park. The last iteration seen by German Village Commission was not approved. We anticipate that the developer will return to GVC in the future with an updated design before filing any appeals with other government bodies, and we continue to monitor the situation closely.

Columbia Gas of Ohio Columbia Gas is in the process of installing new, safer, more efficient main lines throughout the City and German Village. The project will impact about 120 customers.

The 5th & Lansing project will affect the German Village neighborhood bordered by
Sycamore Street on the north, Mohawk Street on the west, Lansing Street on the south
and 6th Street on the east.

The work and clean-up, weather permitting, is expected to be finished in early 2022.
