  1. Allegiant is adding a twice-weekly seasonal flight to Charleston SC. The flights will run June 7th till August 12th with tickets starting at $49 each way. This addition means Allegiant now connects LCK to 11 different cities. https://www.bizjournals.com/columbus/news/2019/02/12/allegiant-announces-nonstop-flights-to-charleston.html?iana=hpmvp_colum_news_headline
  2. I drove past Easton yesterday on 270 and noticed they were putting up a tower crane in the new expansion area. They seem to working full steam ahead now.
  3. Government buildings in the state capitol are going to happen. Get over the "helping the excitement problem". It's a huge part of the city's economy. The entire River South district, just two blocks away, has popped up out of nowhere as a mixed-use neighborhood in downtown. One government building next to an already existing cluster of government buildings - one of which is a prison - is not going doom downtown Columbus. The inferiority complex is getting old.
  4. It probably doesn't seem like it carries that much height because it is directly next door to the 465 foot Franklin County Courthouse building. https://www.google.com/maps/@39.9525827,-82.9987376,3a,75y,319.74h,101.68t/data=!3m6!1e1!3m4!1smOIEU9Vt-px284FFW2TEzA!2e0!7i13312!8i6656?hl=en It would definitely be great to get something built on that grass lot, especially if it's a building of substantial height.
  5. I think the large footprint of that lot is what kept the height down. I wish it could have been broken up into two or three lots for different people to develop. I think the Edwards development is going to be a great addition to that stretch, but if we wanted height it was much too large. It's the same issue that happened at Highpoint and the Normandy developments on Long. When you have one developer working with that much land, they are not going to be very likely to go vertical. It just doesn't make financial sense. These developments are really equal to about a 12-15 story building with a footprint the size of a normal city block. Highpoint is actually probably closer to a 20+ story building.
  6. I'm honestly still impressed it's going to be over 25 (assuming there isn't ANOTHER reduction at some point).
  7. Surprisingly, this part of Columbus is more dense than any of those places.
  8. These figures are pretty surprising to me, especially Block Group 11213 in Columbus with a density of 71,531. It's also surprising that all of the Block Groups in Columbus are more dense than all of Cleveland's (at least of the ones listed here obviously) and are more dense than most of Cincinnati's. I'm assuming the majority of these Block Groups in Columbus are focused around campus and the Short North? It's also surprising that the top Census tracts in Columbus outweigh the top tracts in both Cleveland and Cincinnati. These figures seem to suggest that Columbus is pretty top heavy in terms of high density in some areas being offset by low density in others while Cleveland is more even keeled across the board.
  9. I'm not upset. I was simply questioning why you were comparing apples to oranges. It's all good.
  10. If estimates are correct, and the current rate of change continues, Franklin and Cuyahoga should be pretty much equal in about three years.
  11. I'm not sure walk scores can prove or disprove that one area is more dense or more urban than another area. I think any city that matured at the time Cleveland did is going to beat just about any city that matured during the time Columbus did in terms of walkability scores. Columbus is built for cars and, therefor, can hand much more density without improving walkability than a city like Cleveland could. Again, the whole conversation around density and what is more "urban" is very subjective. Two different cities can both be dense, or lack density, in completely different ways and you can measure it in completely different ways. As a result, we are pretty much going to talk in circles in the thread for all of eternity lol.
  12. It wouldn't surprise me if they changed it. Take a drive up 23 from 270 to downtown Delaware. It's pretty much completely lined with neighborhoods, offices, or strip malls. The suburbs are spilling out from there on either side and pretty much forming a continuous giant suburb from 270 to Delaware.
  13. Interesting data, thanks for posting. I find it odd that the Short North received a "Walker's Paradise" classification, but the University District did not. The University District might actually be more walkable than the Short North due to the number of actual useful amenities (grocery stores and whatnot). Regardless, it's still interesting to look at. Pittsburgh definitely has a ton of walkability, likely due to it's hilly terrain pushing everything together.
  14. What could possibly be gained by comparing the population density of the Columbus city limits to the population densities of Cincy and Cleveland? The situations are so different you can't even compare them effectively. Columbus encompasses 217 square miles of land while Cleveland and Cincinnati only encompass 77.
