“We like the idea of residential along the edge of the Grandview Yard community,” he said. “We’ll come out of an existing residential neighborhood and go into new (residential), then get into the more commercial aspects in Grandview Yard, so I think it transitions real well.”
Bowman said he believes the Grandview school district can accommodate whatever children the homes attract.
The Grandview Heights City Council will take up the plan at its Monday meeting, Bowman said.
All the homes, including the detached ones, will be condominiums. Amicon and Wagenbrenner said they expect the homes to appeal to a wide range of buyers, from young couples with families to empty nesters.
“I think it’s going to be across the board,” Amicon said. “There are people in Grandview who have lived there a long time who want the luxury of staying in Grandview in a new product and don’t want to worry about shoveling snow and mowing a lawn.”
The development will offer a rare chance to buy a new home close to Downtown and in one of central Ohio’s hottest real-estate markets.
