  1. The local tourism company, Experience Columbus has really expanded their reach and in my opinion continues to grow and make all of what the area has to offer accessible and known. At the bare minimum, I'd recommend requesting the free visitors guide magazine. They have a great format within this publication that you might find very useful. https://www.experiencecolumbus.com/travel-tools/visitor-guide/
  2. And imagine this view in a few years with the Hilton 2.0 tower and North Market tower in this vantage point....
  3. Also don't forget that this view will eventually have the Hilton 2.0 tower and Market Tower in it's future. I feel being against the highway, and with how much the convetion center business is growing, as well as the future Crew stadium not a horrible walk away, I would incorporate some significant parking garage options for the bottom 3-4 floors, and build above that, to get the windows and views to look over the highway and power substation across the street. You'd have a great view into Goodale Park across the freeway, as well as the surrounding area. Just my thought though. I know many people who still have to park in these lots just to work at their Nationwide offices each day who don't have the luxury of the company spaces, there aren't enough right now.
  4. That was the impression I got. He made it sound like he saw new ones that were just updated within the last 2 weeks.
  5. Over the weekend, I was at an event, where I was able to pick the brain of a friend of mine who is heavily involved with commercial real estate in Columbus. I brought up this project, and asked if he had any inside details, and although he couldn't go into a ton of specifics, he said the height will be at least 32 stories, and that the most recent updated renderings he was allowed to see within the last few weeks were "sick".......in a good way. Not sure if we will get any public release/update soon, but this source is pretty reliable.
  6. The new rooftop has been quite the hit lately. I'm pumped that this is the first of several more to come in the very near future!! Adds a great perspective and vibe!!
  7. I think you're spot on. From street level, you never see this wall, but as it does become more visible from new heights, it's a great opportunity to dress it up. Given that this is the building that connects to the beautiful Pizzuti Collection Art Museum, which is officially in partnership with CMO, this could be a great opportunity for them to advertise or promote "art" on this huge "canvas". Just a thought.....
  8. I had some friends who attended a pre-opening of the Lincoln Social lounge/club occupying the new retractable rooftop space of the 711 building. Not the most polished of photos but good shots of High Street both looking North and South. It's crazy how in the last decade it has filled in to almost a completely non stop row of buildings now. This has all filled out quite nicely. The view of the new Hilton Hotel expansion looking towards downtown will be fun to see as well in the future!!
  9. So regarding RAM, there has been no official announcement about specifics, however they are removing all the tanks and brewing equipment. Someone peaked through the windows and tried to take some pics of the blueprints laying out hahahaha From what I can tell, the one page looks to be the 2nd floor layout. Looks to possibly be some sort of club/lounge based on the seating and what not. Time will tell, I'm sure we will all know very soon.
  10. A few recent pics I was able to snag recently strolling through the neighborhood recently. I've peaked in at the 711 N High Building for the new Del Mar restaurant, and I must admit the space looks amazing!! Very excited to see Cameron Mitchell's take on Southern California dining as well as the rooftop bar/lounge. I'm also liking the exterior lighting taking place. The Graduate Hotel (former Bollinger tower) window expansion and front addition is also very much along. News of another Shake Shack is going into this space, along with a coffee shop. I'm pretty sure they are going to be putting another rooftop feature/space onto this building as well. And a random view from the back of the new Moxy Hotel progress. Crazy to think these 3 projects alone will add 3 rooftop experiences to the area.....next thing you know they'll be connecting them by zip line!!! (kidding of course) A friend of mine who moved here from New York City about 8 years ago for work but has spent much time in and about the East Coast cities, felt that the vibe of the Short North is very much starting to trend towards the U Street District in Washington DC. Having family there and visiting that area a bit, I can see the assimilation.
  11. https://www.dispatch.com/business/20190213/google-to-go-ahead-with-600-million-data-center-in-new-albany Google to go ahead with $600 million data center in New Albany Google confirmed Wednesday that it plans to develop a $600-million data center in New Albany this year. The project is among $13 billion in investments in data centers and offices that Google plans this year, the company said. Last December, Google affiliate Montauk Innovations said it was considering New Albany for the project in the New Albany International Business Park. Property records show the company has bought 447 acres in Franklin and Licking counties for $54.5 million.
  12. New York Times' 52 Places to Go In 2019 No. 47 Columbus OHIO Is this the American city of the future? "With a revitalized riverfront and booming downtown, Columbus is already one of the nation’s fastest-growing cities. Now, it’s poised to become the model for the future of innovative urban transportation, with self-driving shuttles carrying travelers along the Scioto Mile, which recently completed a massive revitalization, adding 33 acres of riverfront green space for festivals, water sports and outdoor art. (The newly opened National Veterans Memorial and Museum also sits on the Scioto Peninsula.) Among the newest dining options are Veritas, which specializes in small-plate offerings; Service Bar, run by the young chef Avishar Barua, a veteran of New York’s Mission Chinese and WD-50; and in the North Marketneighborhood, veggie-forward Little Eater. The ultracool Short North Arts District offers access to the city’s notable local businesses like the new fashion store Thread and the originalJeni’s ice cream store. But don’t skip Italian Village and German Village neighborhoods, where innovators and dreamers have opened destination shops like Stump Plants and Vernacular and bars like Cosecha." https://www.nytimes.com/interactive/2019/travel/places-to-visit.html?smid=fb-share&fbclid=IwAR2Yk7nz4WHTn-qdw7yi8a5blDslnzBc6jJFpAdlVWWhfcXdenuPTlN_D4w

  14. I apologize, I should have emphasized the "adjacent" aspect of this. It is not the Family Dollar site, rather the lot right next to it at 3rd and High. And again, it has not fully been approved to move forward, I think Corso has been busy with other projects too, but I also don't think it's completely dead.https://www.columbusunderground.com/more-details-unveiled-for-new-five-story-short-north-building-we1
  15. I don't mind the design for the proposed Family Dollar site, or what's adjacent to it, the renderings look like a slightly nicer more spruced up Hub with better finishes. Regarding the CashSmart site, I've always been told that might be one of the last lots to go only because supposedly the site will be costly to prepare due to left over underground gas tanks?? I could be wrong on this, but if it's true, I can see why developers have been hesitant to develop quite yet when there was so many other open lots previously, which now have increasingly become filled in over the last 5-9 years.
