I'm feeling like there were several projects missed on that map. For example, with the Neighborhood Launch project, the 260 units are only for 2 buildings. There will be at least two more buildings after that, so you can probably add at least 100+ more. Also, where are the 288 units for the Jeffrey site coming from? I didn't know any formal plans for the site had been announced. The last I hear, the site layout was still in planning.
Removal of Fifth Avenue Dam Scheduled This Fall By: Walker Evans, Columbus UndergroundPublished on June 26, 2012 - 1:50 pmAfter a decade of discussion, the removal of the Fifth Avenue lowhead dam will finally be moving forward. The Ohio EPA and OSU have both signed off on allowing the Columbus Department of Public Utilities to remove the dam and restore the flow of this portion of the Olentangy River. Yesterday evening (June 25), Columbus City Council passed legislation that will set the stage for the removal of the dam sometime this fall.(. . .)The project is expected to cost approximately $6.9 million, which includes the redesign of the shoreline and the landscaping of native plants along the river. The river will eventually connect Downtown where the Main Street Dam is also being planned for removal, creating an interconnected navigable waterway.MORE: http://www.columbusunderground.com/removal-of-fifth-avenue-dam-scheduled-this-fall
I wonder if anybody is going to move in here specifically to be able to walk to Kahoot's.
The above two buildings at 620 E. Broad Street and 630 E. Broad Street received an Historic Preservation Tax Credit Award from the state. The two buildings are located on the north side of Broad Street and are immediately west of I-71. Just barely within the downtown district and across I-71 from the Olde Towne East neighborhood. Below is the press release from the Ohio Department of Development:From the Ohio Historic Preservation Tax Credit Awards press release:620-30 East Broad (Columbus, Franklin County) · Total Project Cost: $2,203,539 · Total Tax Credit: $313,145 · Address: 620-30 East Broad Street, 43215Originally constructed as private mansions, 620-30 East Broad was converted to office space in the 1920's to house the Ohio Farm Bureau Federation which later spawned Nationwide Insurance. Now largely vacant, the buildings will be rehabilitated to address deferred maintenance needs and install necessary upgrades to support new commercial office tenants. The project is expected to create 25 permanent jobs.
