  1. I know you haven't actually done the interview yet, but during your quick contact, were you able to get a feeling of whether they are looking to get this rolling quickly or if this is some far off thing down the line? I'm wondering if we're going to see a bit of "keeping up with the Joneses" as Polaris and Bridge Park are building up.
  2. I remember they said that the time to pull the trigger would be 8.8 million passengers per year or 2028, whichever came first. So, we should hit that next year. It's nice to see we're about 7 years ahead of schedule from when they first started talking about the new terminal. I wonder, will they want a couple of years at that number or will they pull the trigger as soon as they hit that number once?
  3. Yea, and don't we have that 15 building "mini Easton" starting soon? Has there been any more movement on that?
  4. Wasn't sure where to put this, but it talks about growth in employers, so I'll put it here. Construction Dive's 'mini megacities' to watch: Columbus, Ohio When it comes to construction, Columbus, Ohio, is hot and getting hotter. For nearly a decade, the capital of the Buckeye State has enjoyed an influx of employers and residents that culminated in a year of construction like none other in the city’s history. Construction starts in the metropolitan area were estimated at $6 billion in 2019 — 18% more than the year before — and industry watchers say they could go even higher for 2020. The jobs driving this growth come from a range of well-known public and private sources: Ohio State University, Google, Facebook and corporate headquarters for companies like Victoria's Secret, Cardinal Health and Nationwide Insurance. ...

  5. Springhill Suites is currently under construction in Block F. Mentioned here: https://forum.urbanohio.com/topic/685-dublin-bridge-park-developments-and-news/?do=findComment&comment=872442
  6. I agree with this. The way he worded it will definitely not help his cause, though.
  7. He says that "not everyone comes to our city with the spirit of being part of our city" and mentions new arrivals to neighborhoods that "were once waking up to gun shots and not alarm clocks." I'm confused at what he's saying there. I might be completely missing his point, but is he suggesting that you are only welcome if you take part in the spirit of "waking up to gun shots and not alarm clocks"?
  8. Me whenever there is a new post in the Capitol Square thread: Me after it isn't a new tower:
  9. It really sucks that one of the first things you see when heading into the Short North from the convention center is a boarded up building.
  10. Yea, dedicated lanes would definitely be the major step in that direction. Hopefully it's not just wishful thinking. Also, don't they want to figure out a way to connect all the way to Broad as part of the Olentangy Corridor transit study? Imagine how awesome it would be to have transit going north into the OSU Innovation District and then connecting to Broad St with CoverMyMeds and other tech companies in the area. Could be an awesome hub of tech and research. Nationwide Children's just announced a new gene therapy biofactory that will be going to the Innovation District as well.
  11. The CU article has an image from the report showing Broad St with two dedicated BRT lanes. Article here: https://www.columbusunderground.com/plan-lays-out-vision-for-the-hilltop-bw1
  12. Awesome shot! I really despise that weird triangle no-man's land between the tracks, though.
  13. That's West Franklinton. East Franklinton is already "going." Just wait until Gravity 2 and the next phase of River and Rich are done and it will going even more. And, I agree, West Franklinton has a long way to go. But, it's definitely going to "go." It will be unrecognizable in 20 years. There's too much planned and big money heading that way for it not to.
  14. Yep. East Franklinton is already booming and once CoverMyMeds moves into their HQ, I imagine it won't be long before West Franklinton is booming as well. Especially including the planned redevelopment of Mount Caramel and the old Graham Ford lot.
