They say they're adding another lane for the exit from northbound 71, but I wonder if they'll be changing the traffic light there, too. (I suppose the cycle will change since the light for the southbound entrance and exit will be eliminated.) That exit backs up like a mofo. Occasionally I am stupid enough to use it, such as a couple weeks ago on a Saturday afternoon, when it was backed up for about a mile. I'd hate to see it at rush hour during the Christmas shopping season!
Wow that's still in the city of Columbus??? I always wonder how they can make stuff happen so fast, compared to the† MLK/I-71† interchange in Cincinnati, which may take 2 decades to get done.
That's a really weird setup.† Those coming from the North will have to Exit on Fashion Mall Parkway, but to get back, they have to enter from Polaris Parkway.†
There currently are four Costco Warehouses in Ohio, all in the Cleveland and Cincinnati areas.
I am suprised there has not been a Costco in C-bus until now
"That roadway being opened up is going to create a major artery," said Larry Lehring, vice president of leasing and development for Continental.
Glimcher Realty said last month it wants to tear down the 200,000-square-foot space occupied by Kaufmann's department store and replace it with a 120,000-square-foot lifestyle center to attract a group of retailers that want store entrances outside the mall, said Mark Yale, Glimcher's chief financial officer.
The mall isn't ailing. In its most recent annual report, Glimcher Realty Trust said Polaris' 2005 sales per square foot, an important measure of a mall's health, was $366, only $26 below the national average reported by the International Council of Shopping Centers, a trade group.

"Lifestyle centers are inhabited by upscale restaurants, not a food court," Davidowitz said. "That's the key. It's P.F. Chang's. It's Cheesecake Factory. It's much more upscale fare." -Upscale Restaurants?, I find that kind of amusing.
^You BETTER not be talkin' 'bout QUAKER STEAK N LUBE like that, Michilander!
"This is my first time in a Costco, and I’m so excited," she said.
Retailers, restaurants line up to join roster at Polaris outdoor centerThe Pub, a British-style bar owned by Cincinnati-based Tavern Restaurant Group Inc.http://columbus.bizjournals.com/columbus/stories/2008/07/14/story8.html?b=1216008000^1667527
Wonder what the walk score is at this place?
so that's the same one going into (or that went into by now?) the greene in dayton too, right? it was under construction when i saw it last summer, but from the renderings it looked like a nice pub/tavern joint
With this new lifestyle center development, walkscore.com will have to completely recalibrate its ratings system. Walkers Valhalla.
