...and I'll just put it out there: the fact that no one on here knows anything about the status of this project and/or the land REALLY scares me! no joke!
Rumors have it that this project might be dead for right now.
Eh, I can see why IHOP bailed. How many other urban IHOPs can you name? They are almost like Bob Evans or Cracker Barrel. You know what would work really awesome at this location, though? A Rooster's!
I think any 24 hour eating establishment within a couple blocks from a large university would have to do well. The Hampton Inn would be nice, but I don't know that the Mariott that sits a couple of blocks away is operating at anywhere near full capacity. Hopefully they find some interesting new tenants for the site, certainly something other than a bank.

A Rooster's!No Ihops are allowed within Columbus' city limits from my understanding; it's stipulated in an agreement between the city and Bob Evans!I agree; that's the perfect spot for an ihop. UC needs at least ONE 24 hour place.
Now that I think of it, a Rooster's won't work at this site because current Rooster's policies do not allow restaurants to be located in new buildings, only renovated ones. That's actually a great company policy for making a small dent in sprawl. Well, this is not a sprawly area, though some parts look a suburban.
Building Cincinnati has reported that the boarded up apartment building sometimes known as the 'Florence' has been torn down. You can find images of the building and its demolition with the story link...http://www.building-cincinnati.com/2008/11/wrecking-cincinnati-111108.html
I knew CCMers tasked to work up those designs 5+ years ago.
