    Yup. Hammer, meet nail. The Bush/Obama twin presidency was much closer to fascism than the current one; all its issues notwithstanding. Hello bank bailouts and Pharma-care, oops I mean Obamacare? Modern corporatism started during the 1860s-70s reconstruction era. It's ramped into overdrive since the "anti-trust" age. Which was a hell of a long time ago. It's so ingrained in our culture now people don't even question it. That people think it's any worse under Trump than other presidencies just shows their biases.
  2. Catty corner across US23 from here is the DuPont plant. They're expanding with a $220million investment: https://www.manufacturing.net/news/2019/03/dupont-expands-operations-circleville-ohio-invests-220-million
  3. The apartment building behind the Grandview Mercantile site is underway:
  4. Same here. And the forums were incredibly active and informative with quality posters. Who are these people reading Columbus Underground movie reviews? Really, you're getting your movie reviews from a local rag? Concert reviews of local concerts I get, but movie reviews? Then you have the immature opinion pieces; some of which have nothing to do with Columbus specifically. It's really become a clickbait site, and that's sad. I've thought about starting up a site for just construction updates, and development proposals, but these forums do well for that. And more Columbus people are starting to file in so it's become more active than a few years ago. It's also cool to be here so you see how much ass Cincinnati and Cleveland are kicking too. Glory to Ohio! haha
  5. Or just going out for 2-3 drinks over the course of 2-4 hours.

  7. Burlesque club to open at Easton "Nightclub developer Ivan Kane will bring his latest concept, Ivan Kane’s Forty Deuce Cafe and Speakeasy, featuring a burlesque show, to Easton Town Center’s $500 million expansion now under construction. Kane’s clubs have gained fame for having celebrity investors Sting and the late David Bowie; reinvented “world-class burlesque” on weekends, as well as a variety of other live entertainment; and high-profile clientele including Carmen Electra, George Clooney, Christina Aguilera, Britney Spears, Brad Pitt, Justin Timberlake, Ryan Gosling, Ellen DeGeneres, Leonardo DiCaprio and Mick Jagger. Expected to open late this year in partnership with Columbus-based venture capital firm LOUD Capital, Forty Deuce will be located next to the new RH Gallery — the high-end version of Restoration Hardware — and will be similar to the original location in Hollywood and its second location at Las Vegas’ Mandalay Bay. Kane hadn’t planned to expand the concept to the Midwest. “I was called by Easton’s developers,” he said. “When I came to Easton and Columbus and saw what they were doing, and saw how incredibly vibrant and relevant Columbus was, I was blown away. I really was. It’s a very sophisticated city, everyone is very nice and welcoming. I literally couldn’t find a way to talk myself out of the deal. It fit really well in my wheelhouse. “I’m excited to see how my concept works in this Midwest flagship.” Kane is so enthusiastic about the project that he plans to buy a home in Columbus “and become part of the community,” he said. 'I take very seriously opening a venue — I’m an owner/operator.'" https://www.dispatch.com/news/20190313/burlesque-club-to-open-at-easton
  8. Although Hubbard Park Place is in Victorian Village, it had to adhere to the Short North Design guidelines. Thus, I consider it a Short North property.
  9. Short North apartment complex has premium amenities, premium rents "Hubbard Park Place, 776 Park St., rents two 1,553-square-foot, two-bedroom units on the fifth floor for $4,850 a month each, making them the highest-priced apartments in Columbus. “We’re delivering a product that hasn’t been seen in Columbus,” said Tyler Puhl, leasing manager for the developer, Wood Cos. Wood Cos. and Schiff Capital Group developed Hubbard Park Place, one of three complexes in the city with monthly rents that reach $4,000 or more. The Brunner Building, also developed by the Wood Cos., has three penthouses that rent for $4,000 a month. “We spared no expense at Hubbard Park Place,” said Michael Schiff, owner of Schiff Capital Group. 'It has all the nicest finishes possible.'" https://www.dispatch.com/business/20190308/short-north-apartment-complex-has-premium-amenities-premium-rents
  10. 6-story replacement proposed for UA's Golden Bear Shopping Center "Arcadia has reduced commercial space and added a few more residential units to the planned complex, which has grown to 278,100 square feet. The building will have about 28,300 square feet of ground-floor retail and restaurant space, 33,700 square feet of second-floor office space and 112 condominium units. The 75-foot-tall, E-shaped development would front Riverside Drive, and behind it would be a two-level parking garage with 427 spaces total on the site. Plans now include demolishing a bank building on the site but keeping the McDonald's and Arby's restaurants on either side." https://www.bizjournals.com/columbus/news/2019/03/08/first-look-6-story-replacement-proposed-for-uas.html?iana=hpmvp_colum_news_headline
  11. 'Open fire' concept will anchor $200M Hilton tower "Downtown's new hotel tower is a chance to spark a new, fiery trend in Columbus dining, according to its designers. Hilton Columbus Downtown officials are putting together the concept for the "signature" restaurant that will occupy the prominent High Street location next to the Greater Columbus Convention Center. The $210 million, 28-story hotel tower is expected to break ground this year. Plans are in place for an "open fire" restaurant unique to Columbus, said Chris Coffin, general manager of the hotel. That means a restaurant built around a wood fired grill where a variety of foods can be cooked on an open flame and in front of customers. It's a trend seen in highbrow eateries opened in New York and Chicago recently, prompting Michelin-starred restaurateurs to add this type of establishment to their portfolios, he said." https://www.bizjournals.com/columbus/news/2019/03/07/exclusive-open-fire-concept-will-anchor-200m.html?ana=twt
