(Dublin, Ohio) Christoff Land & Development has completed construction on a new retail development on 6465 Sawmill Road in Dublin, Ohio. The redevelopment project required demolition of an existing vacant home, compacting of soil/gravel for basement fill and extensive sitework. In addition, the commercial building was the first to be completed following the adoption of the Bridge Street District zoning regulations.
The modern retail building known to Dublin Planning as the “Christoff Building" has incorporated all of the unique and important design elements of the new Dublin BSC code requirements (e.g. walkable destination, bicycle parking, receptacle, pocket plaza, storm water management, etc.).
With an eye toward high design, the smart new retail center is a handsome minimalist scheme, which aims to recapture the tradition of leisurely destination and bring a renewed dignity that is an extension of the minimalistic design that the Piada building recently brought to this corridor.
The 3,254 square foot building consist of glass and black metal storefront-style facade on all four sides of the contemporary modern building with canopies (protect pedestrians from the elements), energy efficient LED/Fluorescent lighting with building entrances facing Sawmill Road to the east & the parking lot to the west. The wood-steel frame structure supports the horizontal box clad surrounded in unique manganese iron-spot brick with 9-foot high glass storefronts that admit ample daylight and put wares on full display.
To break up the scale of the development, which sits on a .045 acre site, an open area was established to the south of the building that includes a 300 SF pocket plaza and spaces for bicycle parking. In addition, the building is surrounded to the south, east and west with sidewalks extending the length of the building inviting pedestrian access to both the front street entrances and the rear parking. The dumpster is screened by walls consisting of clean lined manganese iron-spot brick, matching the building’s materials.
