Columbus has renewed its search for a tenant in the former Snappy Tomato Pizza location inside The Commons.
The only applicant, local businessman Philip Roggow, had planned to open a coffee shop adjacent to the 30-foot-tall Luckey Climber playground.
But Roggow's proposal to open Dancing Goat Coffee was turned down over questions about his company's business plan.
Roggow applied to lease the 678-square-foot space May 19 after the city sent out a request for proposals March 11. But after an evaluation by the Columbus Redevelopment Commission tenant review committee, Roggow was notified last month that his application was denied.
