  1. That is not correct. You are looking at the TRAC list that includes all approved projects (including projects in previous TRAC cycles). All of District 6's applications were not funded. I-270/US 23 and Far East Freeway phases 2&3 received no funding for example.
  2. When you factor in the tax credits, reusing the buildings could very likely be more economical than demolishing and rebuilding behind the facade. With the state credit ($4.2 M) and federal credit ($3.4 M), there is substantial equity brought to the project by doing a rehab. If you demolished everything but the facades, you would lose the credits and have a significant cost to reinforce and preserve the facade. Given the height of these buildings, the latter would not be cheap.
  3. While the new Parsons exit doesn't replace the 3rd Street entrance ramp, the opening of the Parsons ramp does mean 3rd Street must close because they are so close together.
  4. ^Traffic will be detoured down Livingston to Miller/Kelton or Alum Creek entrance ramps. Of course, you can also get on parts of 71, 670, and 315 and make your way to 70 East as well.
  5. They did not have a design contest. They issued a development RFP. The city was evaluating the scale and impact (including financial) of the project, not just its design.
  6. I walked by about an hour ago and thought there was no way it would be ready by October 10th. I’d go with the Graduate or Joseph if you want to be in the Short North.
  7. I believe the latest plan only keeps the buildings on King (corner and rowhomes).
  8. I agree that the current design is better than the original, 1980's-inspired PoMo proposal.
  9. ^There is a Fifth by Northwest area commission, which likely has similar concerns. Chambers jumps in and out of city limits on both sides of Northwest, so the condition is not too surprising.
  10. Companies have to suggest they are exploring others regions and states to get the most lucrative incentives. Bob Evans was never leaving Ohio, but they had to claim looking at Texas so the state could justify incentives to keep them here.
  11. Boston and San Francisco also have vertical convention centers (Hynes and Moscone Centers); I'm sure there are plenty of others.
  12. ^^^I think Corpus Christi, Texas was actually the largest, and Hamilton was the second or third. SR 4 was one of the options considered for routing of I-75, but was more expensive than going through farmland in Eastern Butler County. There's a story that ODOT held an open house about the routing on a Friday evening when Hamilton High School was holding a football game and a city council election was being held the following Tuesday, so all the local officials were at the game and ODOT went with the cheaper alternative. I don't know if SR 4 routing would have been good for Hamilton or Middletown's urban cores, however. Connecting SR 129 between I-75 and I-71 with a toll and no interchanges would have been interesting, but probably even less desirable to locals in Warren County.
