Activating Franklinton with the Scioto Peninsula Hotel
JOHNSON NATHAN STROHE recently designed the 180-room Scioto Peninsula Hotel on the Scioto Peninsula, located at the east end of Franklinton, Ohio, just across the river from downtown Columbus. The hotel is part of the city’s masterplan to create an active, mixed-use development on the peninsula, once an industrial area.
The hotel takes inspiration from the historic context of Franklinton, a neighborhood nicknamed “The Bottoms” because much of the land is subject to flooding at its position below the level of the Scioto and Olentangy rivers. Thanks to revitalization efforts from city leaders and local residents, Franklinton is slowly emerging as a charming and artsy town. Drawing from the rich history of the town’s train station, which served as the main arrival hub into Columbus, JOHNSON NATHAN STROHE incorporated the authenticity and grit of the area into the hotel’s modern design.
