  1. I'm with you on the little strip mall, but I like the Greystone building, it's a neat ivy covered contrast to some of the newer structures going up on that corner.
  2. My guess is that they would use the existing garages and lots which service Huntington Park and Nationwide Arena. That's one of the things I like best about this location, you don't need to have massive lots surrounding the stadium due to the existing parking infrastructure that's just a short walk away.
  3. I'm not saying it is either. I think the greater good here is to allow the development of the HQ and all its variances. I'm particularly glad to see a development that utilizes the river as an asset. I'm just saying that I don't think it's fair to dismiss the valid concerns of a 90 year old family owned business as NIMBYism. They aren't complaining about traffic or parking or some other nonsense. I think it's valid to say that their business doesn't align with the future development that's gonna take place here and they're gonna have to spend millions to move.
  4. In addition to the concerns on taxes, which I'm sure is a part of it, I think the concern is more that future high tech office workers (or residents as development continues) aren't going to want a dusty, smelly, unattractive chemical/industrial complex next door to their new world class HQ and that the existing companies will be forced out 5-10 years down the line. GFS Chemicals Inc. has been there since 1928 and I think their existential concerns are justified. Columbus Business First had a an article on this Weds or Thurs. As an example, near where I grew up there was a speciality chemical company that was out in the middle of nowhere when it was built. Then years later its surrounded by a golf course and upper middle middle class suburbs and suddenly it had to justify it's right to be there.

  6. I'm going to jump in on the dislike side. I liked the first rendering and really liked the random one that was found on the Schooley Caldwell site, but this newer version is my least favorite. It's not because I dislike modern architecture as it can be done well, I think 250 South High is great and fits its site perfectly. But on the flip side I feel like modern architecture can sometimes just be a lazy excuse to stack boxes and offset windows. And to use the cheapest materials possible (i.e. 600 Goodale, which was apparently made with papier-mâché) . At the end of the day I'm not going to be sad if they build this version, but I think it's the most boring of the 3.
