2210 E. Dublin-Granville Road was the site of a former strip club. In addition to the exterior challenges of the façade and location, John Mally was tasked with finding a buyer and representing the ownership group in selling this 10,000 square foot asset in 2016.
Due to crime issues with previous clubs, the Northland Community Council, Village of Minerva Park, and City of Columbus, did not support interest received from other club operators. The community emphasized this desire by putting a hold on the liquor license for the address and communication with the owners. John was tasked with targeting and recruiting a user with a concept that could utilize the large space and parking lot, while winning approval from the surrounding communities.
Due to the size of the property, dollars stores, night clubs, and churches made up the initial interest. Interested parties were only offering a purchase option with a desire for a quick close, ultimately not working for the property sale.
The owner of the Dunkin’ Donuts across the street showed interest in the property with a desire to turn it into a laundromat in order to service the many rental units in the surrounding area. Architectural and structural meetings were set to examine the possibility of creating a single flat foundation as well as adding windows around the entrance. Multiple details included in the buyer’s diligence were worked through in a matter of 30 days and both parties agreed on a closing date. An SBA loan was approved to acquire the property and fund a portion of the construction.
A new laundromat concept, Laundry Max, very popular on the East Coast, will now be opening up in 2017. The entire neighborhood is excited for a new clientele to come into the area.
