COLUMBUS, Ohio (COLUMBUS BUSINESS FIRST) – White Castle and Elford are teaming up on another mixed-use real estate project, this time in Columbus’ Fifth by Northwest neighborhood.

The fast food chain’s former district office building on West 5th Avenue will be transformed into 196 apartments and 7,000 square feet of retail and commercial space. There will also be a 326 space parking garage.

The mixed-use project at 915 W. Fifth Ave., dubbed the Blakely, will open in late 2023.

Elford broke ground on the project earlier this year. ArchAll Architects is the architect. The building is next door to Endeavor Brewing & Spirits and Rye River Social.
