A California company that owns two dozen properties in a warehouse corner of Downtown has submitted plans to develop one of the properties into a large bar, restaurant and entertainment space.
Hackman Capital Partners, based in Los Angeles and with offices in Worthington, plans to convert the 33,000-square-foot office and warehouse at 225 Neilston St. into the venue, which would include a large outdoor patio in what is now an alley on the north side of the building.
The building would be substantial for a restaurant and entertainment space – about twice the size, for example, of Express Live!’s building at 405 Neil Ave.
Plans submitted to the city by Archall Architects of Columbus show a total renovation of the building’s plain brick exterior. The main entrance would be shifted to the south side of the building and oversized doors added on the north side opening onto the patio.
Representatives from Hackman were not available to discuss the project, which is scheduled to come before the Downtown Commission on Tuesday.
