280 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.

The next procedural meeting will be held virtually by the Columbus South Side Area Commission on October 31. Visit Schumacher Place Civic Association for more information.

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.
