This looks like some pretty nice infill (riverfront parking!) but realistically it is staring at the garages of the buildings on High:

https://www.google.com/maps/@40.1000362,-83.1131415,3a,75y,332.87h,78.34t/data=!3m6!1e1!3m4!1smkgpGcdeFwPnLvZuop8JXw!2e0!7i13312!8i6656

 

Assuming some further redevelopment of that corner it should make for a nice project eventually, but it would be a little strange initially. And a totally reconstruction of what is now an alley into a real 2-way road with street parking. 

 

Does Dublin have a downtown Master Plan at this point that considers all of the recent investment (i.e. the new library, parking garage, Bridge Park West, etc.)?

I was only peripherally aware of this development until this weekend, when I met my sister and niece for brunch at the Cap City Fine Diner in this Bridge Park area.  I'm seriously impressed with what Dublin has done with the place since the last time I was through this area, which was years ago but not that many years ago for how much has happened here.  Glad to have this thread in existence as a great opportunity to click back through and see what I've been missing condensed into one crowdsourced place on the Internet.

I was at Bridge Park in February (at Cap City, as a matter of fact) and it's the first time I'd been in Columbus and Dublin in 7 years.  I was seriously impressed with everything that's been happening in Columbus and I was loving Dublin as well.  As I mentioned in a previous post after my visit, if there was a light rail line from Dublin to downtown Columbus, it would be incredible.

The new $21.1 million, 41,000 square foot Dublin branch library opened in downtown Dublin at 75 N. High Street last week.  Below are some exterior photos of the finished library.  The above two linked articles also contain slideshows with additional exterior photos and interior photos of the new library.

First Look: New Dublin Library Branch

 

Columbus Metropolitan Library’s Dublin Branch opened to the public June 6. A visit to the site a week later revealed a light-filled space that – judging by the number of people reading, studying, and just checking out the new building – is already being well-utilized by the community.

...

Turner was the construction manager for the Dublin project and NBBJ was the architect. The building was the winner of CU’s annual reader’s poll for Best Architectural Design of 2017.

Cladding progress.

The bridge is finishing up. 

 

Can't wait until all this is finished it's going to be so cool. I went to the Central Ohio Planning Conference a month or two ago (I'm losing my sense of time) and got a tour of the project. The overall development is going to be huge, they also own land south of the roundabout which I did not know.

This whole project is awesome and I'm glad they've been steadily progressing through the phases, but I do wish they had baked in a little more variety both on building height and style. With the exception of the AC Hotel, everything practically looks the same. If they varied the height along Riverside by just 2-3 floors and maybe clad one all in glass I think it would look a lot better. Also, would probably help it not look so dated in 15-20 years.

Bridge Park Expands Condo Offerings with “The Warren”

 

The next phase of Bridge Park is well underway, expanding the mixed-use Dublin development northward with a combination of residential and commercial uses.

 

In addition to the North Market expansion, developer Crawford Hoying is currently building out another 43-unit condominium building called “The Warren” which overlooks the new Riverside Crossing Park.

Is that a skywalk to a parking garage? -_-

 

Yes, there are skywalks between most of the buildings and their adjacent parking garages.

I was talking to somebody who lives in the new condos right down along the river who said he has spoken with some of the construction workers regularly as he has watched the pedestrian bridge project progress.  He said he had spoken with the project manager of that project. He said they wanted to have a ribbon cutting by the end of this year and that somewhere between Thanksgiving and Christmas, you would be able to walk across the bridge, but that there would still be some work left to do after that.  I'm guessing some aesthetic things like lighting.  Take this with a grain of salt.

That matches up with the caption of this bridge construction photo from the front page of today's Dispatch.  So, more grains of salt? 😀

Nice.  I hadn't seen that article yet.  I would consider that a much more reliable source as "some random guy".  Haha. So I'm more confident now he was right.

First 5 Vendors Selected for North Market Bridge Park

 

The first five of North Market Bridge Park’s eventual 19 purveyors have been announced.

 

The historic Downtown market is adding a second 30,000 square foot location at 6736 Longshore St., curating a lineup of vendors unique to the Dublin location. The first five vendors include The Dublin Farmer’s Daughter, Coastal Local Seafood, MoMo Ghar, Dough Mama and Market Bar.

 

Frequenters of the original North Market will recognize one purveyor. MoMo Ghar will bring its Tibetan eats to Dublin, operating stalls at both locations. The Dublin Farmer’s Daughter and Coastal Local Seafood represent the first ventures into retail locations for locally established brands, while Dough Mama will add its second spot in Central Ohio. The Market Bar will be a new concept tailored to the space.

I'll be curious to see the final product and revisions. They weren't able to keep their original vision of the Market because it didn't meet modern food standard code. However, to what extent changes had to be made, I'm not sure. 

 

If they had to update it like Charlotte's, it will be relatively meh.

 

The original North Market is grandfathered into certain codes so they can have the open aesthetic with open food prep and ceilings etc. In Charlotte, and potentially Dublin, they had to have a separated food prep area much like food courts where the only think you see is the counter. I just hope the ceilings are higher than Charlotte's market. 

 

We shall see.

Hypothetical Curiosity. Plausibility of a 20 story (give or take) build or two to bridge park? Seems like there is the potential for a central tower or two. As much as I want to see height in the core, I'm itching to see a small tower or two in Bridge Park as well. Have there been any formal announcements or plans for the northern plots or the SE corner of the roundabout other than conceptual plans?

 

I spent the last month in chicago land and seeing some of the random suburban towers (particularly the ones where there is nothing else above 5 stories nearby and vast amounts of land an hour+ from the city), it struck me as more feasible for Dublin to get one sooner than later. Is traffic going to put local leaders and developers on pause for such a project?

Updated their master plan with the "Block G" highlighted, as well as the previously proposed (in construction?) Field House parcel. Has anything  been proposed for Block F yet?

Bridge Park Lands Large Office Tenant

 

Automotive lifestyle company Hagerty is setting up its new operations center at Bridge Park in Dublin.

Offering its Hagerty magazine, as well as specialty insurance for enthusiast vehicles, Drivers Club memberships, car valuation tools and more, positions will included IT, licensed sales agents, claims and insurance product professionals.

An interesting move, as Hagerty is the specialty/historical vehicle partner for Nationwide Insurance since 2013ish I believe. With Nationwide's continued evolution into a more streamlined company and consolidation and focus on commercial and specialty products, I wonder what influence they had in bringing them to town.

With opening of new pedestrian bridge, Dublin enters a new, more urban era

 

After seven years of planning, residents will finally be able to cross the suspension bridge over the Scioto River.

 

The Dublin Link – that's the newly revealed name of the the $22.6 million, 169-foot-tall, 760-foot-long suspension bridge – opens to the public March 13.

 

Designed by Endrestudio and built by Kokosing Construction Co., it will allow pedestrians and cyclists dedicated path between the two sides of the river, a journey they currently can only make via the sidewalks next to the busy roadway to the south.

https://www.thisweeknews.com/news/20200310/dublins-st-patricks-day-celebration-canceled-bridge-opening-delayed

 

The grand opening of the new Dublin pedestrian bridge will not be held this Friday.  Because of coronavirus concerns, the bridge dedication has been postponed - along with the cancellation of Dublin's St. Patrick's Day Parade set for Saturday and the State of the City address.

 

So for now, these Dispatch drones pics of the new bridge will have to do:

 

High overhead view showing the bridge spanning the Scioto River.

- The historic Dublin town center is in the foreground on the west side of the river.

- The new Bridge Park mixed-use development is in the background on the east side of the river.

Closer view of the suspended bridge deck passing through the keyhole of the center support structure:

View of the west plaza where the bridge lands in the historic town center on the west bank:

- The plaza is located between two buildings recently constructed by Crawford/Hoying - the developers of the larger Bridge Park mixed-use development on the east bank of the Scioto.  The plaza is also located across the street from the new Dublin Public Library (slightly visible in the upper left corner of the image).
