Columbus: Short North Developments and News

Recommended Posts

I'm unable to see that whole article (paywall....I really should subscribe, lol). That looks/sounds like more than a "garage". What exactly is it? And where is it being proposed to be built?

From the article: "Plans call for a 5,000-square-foot two-floor restaurant and 16 apartments wrapping around the 260-space parking garage."

 

It's being built at 36-40 E. Lincoln St.

 

Sometimes on CBF if you stop the page from loading quick enough you can read the article 😉

Thank you! I'll try that in the future : )

 

Just Google streetviewed that area. I haven't been behind these buildings on High in a long time. There's a lot of room for growth right now according to the 2016 streetview, lol. A couple more of these type of projects could replace some surface lots. back there.

Another Wood Cos product I'm sure will break the curve on my development quality gauge. I cannot believe how much of a gem Wood is for this city. 

 

Same. Honestly, if more companies built to the quality and attention to detail that Wood Cos. builds, I think more projects would get approved, regardless of height or location.

And still more CU photos of the Moxy Hotel project at 800 N. High Street - especially interior construction photos.  Here are two really interesting views from one of the rooftops at the 10-story building.

 

View looking north up High Street toward Ohio State.  The venerable Greystone apartment building and newer Dakota condos are in the foreground across the street from the Moxy:

View looking south down High Street toward Downtown.  The former Bollinger Tower (currently being renovated as a hotel) and the new 711 N. High Street building are visible in the foreground with the downtown towers - like the Nationwide HQ Tower - visible in the background:

With new parking policy in place, Short North braces for first warm-weather Gallery Hop

 

dji0178-2*750xx5472-3078-0-0.jpg

 

The first sunny and warm Gallery Hop of 2019 will take place Saturday, and that means two things to Betsy Pandora: more people and less parking.

 

Pandora is the executive director of Short North Alliance, which oversees the exploding stretch of buildings along High Street that has hosted the monthly event in Columbus for 35 years. She said that on an average weekend, around 10,000 patrons attend Gallery Hop, and that with spring weather in the forecast, it might be even more this weekend.

 

"It almost feels like this be the first gallery hop of the year instead of the fourth," she said. "It's been a rough winter, so we are excited."

 

But big crowds mean big challenges.

The Yoga on High building is being demolished. Interestingly, the entire block from 3rd to 4th is fenced off including the former Family Dollar store and its parking lot. Is the entire block being cleared? Or is the Family Dollar site being used as a staging area for the new building replacing Yoga on High?

^Some more information about the Bollinger Tower renovation into a Graduate Hotel and about the tenants going into the ground floor addition:

 

Another Shake Shack is coming to Columbus

By Dan Eaton – Staff reporter, Columbus Business First

April 9, 2019, 2:13pm EDT

 

Columbus will get a second helping of Shake Shack.  The popular New York-based burger chain hasn’t yet opened its first Central Ohio restaurant, but already has a second in the works.  It is slated to be part of the Graduate Hotel project at 750 N. High St. in the Short North.

 

Signs for the restaurant will go before the Italian Village Commission Tuesday night for approval.  Shake Shack has not yet commented on the plan, while Chicago-based AJ Capital Partners, owners of the property and operators of the hotel chain, declined to comment.  Shake Shack last year announced plans to open at Easton Town Center.

 

Graduate is going into the 11-story, 82,000-square-foot former Bollinger Tower building.  It will have 171 rooms and is expected to open in the fall.  Poindexter Coffee, a coffee shop that is part of other Graduate hotels, also will be on the ground floor, according to the documents filed with Italian Village Commission.

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.

Cool pictures, thanks for sharing. Really loving what they're doing to Bollinger Tower. Bigger windows looks SO much better than the prison windows that were there before, lol.

 

Also, they completely destroyed the new (!!!) sidewalk that was put in right in front of it. I'm hoping that when they repair it, they keep it uniform to the color/texture of what they spent all last year putting in, lol.

 

And what's funny is that the new sidewalk in front of the Moxy Hotel looks completely fine (albeit covered with wood slate things). Wonder why one was able to be protected and the other one destroyed during construction, ha. Just thinking out loud. I'm sure there are reasons.

You got it. The developer for Yoga on High is leasing that family dollar lot for equipment storage.

I wish more of our downtown towers and new builds in the SN would put more of an emphasis on exterior lighting. It can really enhance the build! That lighting is eye-grabbing! Maybe the Moxy and graduate hotels will follow.

Has there been any word on a tenant for the old RAM Restaurant? I have noticed in passing that some demo work has been occurring on the lower level bar. the only other assumption i had was that they sold some of the brewing equipment and required some demo to get it removed.

^^^ Like actually removing part of the walls to outside? Yeesh.......I really like the building and liked RAM upstairs. I can't believe nothing has moved in yet. It's a neat space.

 

Also, yesterday I noticed that Delmar restaurant (I think?) is open on the lower level of the new Lincoln Building. Didn't even know that was close to opening. Is that building largely done, then? Inside on the upper levels looks like they are incomplete, though.

Indoor demo -- no exterior walls being removed. The lower level bar looks to be almost completely disassembled. I agree, it is such a cool two story space with rooftop patio. I think another brewery/restaurant is destined for the spot due to the set up. I thought maybe Watershed could bring their restaurant there and be successful..  

 

 I am sure the rent is crazy which leads me to believe the Donatos/black brick concept wont be around much longer. I never actually see the place buzzing. Zest may be the only spot to survive.

I believe Donatos owns and developed the building, I think they and Black Brick are probably sticking around in that spot. However it is confusing that the old RAM spot hasn't been snatched up yet, it's quite possibly one of the most prime locations in the SN.

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.

^^^Haha, that's pretty funny. Kudos to however did that 😛

 

Also, anyone know when they're going to be filling the new planters in the Short North? There's supposed to be a bunch of new "green space" and what not.

Last week's High St Streetscape update included this:

 

Quote

From Poplar Ave. to W. Starr Ave.

With temperatures rising, soon crews will begin to remove old utility poles at intersection corners and fill these spaces back in with finished concrete. Expect to see activity in the next one to two weeks. Additional greenery will also be planted following pole removal.

 

 

They're still working to remove the old poles, so the remaining plantings are probably still a few weeks out.

Any idea why the sidewalk on the east side of high at the buttles intersection (across the alley from the graduate hotel site) and near Mikes Bar has yet to be completed? Where the curb pops out has been done but up close to the building it is still rough concrete of old.

I noticed they were removing the old poles and was happy about that. The only intersection remaining that hasn't switched to the new traffic lights and signals is High & 1st / Price.

 

.justin, where can I sign up for these update emails? I'm always just checking here for updates about tiny stuff like that and I don't want to keep stupidly asking if it's readily available like that. Here is the only official outlet I know to check for updates: https://www.columbus.gov/Templates/Detail.aspx?id=2147501680

Not sure, been wondering that myself! I wonder if there was an issue with removing the existing sidewalk in front of that building; there could be a basement beneath the sidewalk there that needed to be closed off.

And I was wondering about that spot by Buttles as well!! I thought maybe it had to do with something for the construction of Bollinger. It's really weird and bothers me 😛

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!!

I was kind of shocked by this picture, I don't think I have ever noticed this was just a large blank gray wall. Im guessing not being visible from the street is the reason it's never gotten any treatment, but I think it does call for something now that more and more structures are being built where this will be routinely seen. I think that means it's time for another living wall or bold mural (I can wish right).

 

I always thought it was strange that the Joseph Hotel side got such a large blank wall too, though it seems they attempted to dress it up a but with the brick pattern.  I wish they would consider a large  installation in the brick pattern like the Citizen M Building in Manhattan did a few years back in its windows.

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.....

First Look: Hubbard Park Place

 

Hubbard Park Place, the new mixed-use development at the corner of Park Street and West Hubbard Avenue, was first brought before the Victorian Village Commission in 2013. The design proposed at that time – which called for an underground parking garage, a raised interior courtyard over a second level of parking, and three distinct sections surrounding the courtyard designed to blend in with the neighboring streets – very much resembles what has now been built on the site.

 

Schooley Caldwell was the architect for the project, which was developed by the Wood Companies and Schiff Capital Group.

 

About 70 percent of the 101 apartments are now spoken for (with around half of those renters coming from out of town), and half of the 12,000 square feet of office space has been leased, according to Tyler Puhl, Leasing Director for the Wood Companies. He and company President Mark Wood recently gave Columbus Underground a tour of the development.

I really like the material selection on the new Pizzuti building. It's nice to see something other than red brick.
