POWELL, Ohio — The City of Powell is seeking bids for the demolition of a former carryout building on North Liberty Street.
According to bid documents, the project entails the demolition of 35 North Liberty Street, a two-story 60 ft x 80 ft block and wood siding building. The building, built in 1984, most recently served as a carryout store with offices above. It has been vacant since early 2020.
The project is funded by the Ohio Department of Development (ODOD) Building Demolition and Site Revitalization Program. The city estimates the cost of the demolition project to be $200,615.
Demolition will not include the adjacent asphalt parking lot.
The building is owned by STZ Ventures LLC. The owners are proposing that the land should be used for temporary parking, with a future mixed-use development planned. That development would likely include other nearby parcels owned by STZ Ventures. The city estimates that $10 million will be spent on that development.
