THE SENECA

NATIONAL LANDMARK RENOVATION

This project consisted of the renovation of the historic Seneca Hotel, a national historic landmark situated on an urban site in downtown Columbus. This project has created a significant impact on the downtown Discovery District, since the existing landmark facility had sat vacant for nearly twenty years. The facility had deteriorated to a point that the city had ordered that the building be demolished, and the current owner purchased the building in an effort to save the landmark. The design includes retail spaces on the first floor and market rate-apartments on the remaining nine.
