Exactly, as far as I've always read and seen, Miranova is the tallest residential building in the sate at 26 floors and 314' tall.
I honetslyl remember when Cincinnati's now scaled down 4th and Race tower was announced, it was mentioned that it would beat out Columbus' Miranova for the states tallest residential building. Ill go digging or that article to see if I can find it.


https://www.emporis.com/buildings/122091/edgecliff-point-cincinnati-oh-usa

I had intended to say Edgecliff Point as Edgecliff is the older, shorter residential building next door to Edgeliff Point. It's listed here as 98.43 meters tall, or just shy of 323'.

Unless Emporis is just wrong, but that's rare. This was the height listed by building management when I worked on a few units and two of the penthouses in it when I was in Cincy. Not that it matters as height isn't really that important.

This project is sort of enviable. I really want Cincinnati and Cleveland to get a potentially game-changing development like this. It's more than just a tower, but an entire street-activating development that incorporates high quality design into both street level and the skyline. We need more of that in Ohio.
Not that it really matters, but EdgeCliff Point is listed as 284 feet, built in 1990.  The Emporis listing is an estimate.

http://www.skyscrapercenter.com/building/edgecliff-point-condos/23352 

The older one(built in 67)is listed as shorter.

But I agree-all Three C's need more good proposals. I wish Cbus was getting a SkyHouse. I don't know why but I really like those.

I wish Cincy was STILL getting a SkyHouse. It's a shame that fell through. Although it's even more of a shame that the prior proposal for that site fell through.

That was never actually publicly announced but it's a proposal from a local developer that couldn't make the numbers work before the SkyHouse developers tried and also couldn't make the numbers work.

Hmm. That's weird. Emporis actually notes Miranova as the tallest residential building in Ohio (https://www.emporis.com/buildings/119117/miranova-condominiums-columbus-oh-usa) which is why I even mentioned it to begin with, but I don't doubt @jmicha either on the other tower in Cincy.

But yes, regardless of all that, it's exciting to see new proposals starting to exceed the scale of anything we've seen up till now in the 3Cs. Hopefully this gets going on schedule, and is a sign of more good things to come in the future. I agree that the street-level interaction is really game-changing. Wood/Schiff being in charge also means that the materials and detailing will be very high quality.

Although I have a deep love for Cincy, the developers there really don't do a very good job on new construction. There are some small developers starting to get into the game that do really good work, but the big guys in town are all pretty bland. Columbus does seem to do a really good job with local developers when it comes to quality of infill. There are some duds for sure but most of what's being built is in the good-to-excellent range.

I'm really hoping that now that this current wave of residential towers in the 3Cs prove to out-of-towners that these cities can support this type of development. Sometimes someone just has to be first before more similar projects come along.

^I've been saying for a while now that Columbus probably "gets it" the most when it comes to doing really good, proper infill. I wish the cities would be more open to interchange of what works in each, because they're all strong in their own way and have so much they could learn if they cooperated a bit more.

What're the chances of this one actually happening? Or at least happening in a timely manner. We see tons of proposals on here that looks great and exciting, only to either see them majorly delayed, scaled down, or scrapped all together. NuCleus, Skyhouse Cincy, Millenium Tower(?) idk not as familiar with Cbus projects.

Well, if the city of Columbus actually hand-picked the design, I'd say it's a VERY good chance.

North Market's 35-story tower backed by developers with deep experience



The Market Tower high-rise proposed by the North Market downtown will be a calling card for Columbus – and also for its developers.

So I got bored at work and figured you all may be curious about something like this... so here is a rendering I whipped up this morning. The scale I'm sure isn't quite right but I just wanted to get some perspective of what it could look like in pieces of the skyline.

I'm actually pretty excited about how it fits into the skyline leading into the SN.

That's awesome! If you get bored tomorrow you should add Millennial Tower (I know I know, it probably won't happend) and the two proposed 30 story towers for the Franklinton development.

An interesting (if somewhat creepy) historical sidenote to the North Market Tower project from WOSU Radio:

A Tower Will Rise Above North Market. Below, A Graveyard Awaits
BY SAM HENDREN, WOSU RADIO
APRIL 27, 2017


Early on a sunny April morning, the North Market parking lot is still empty.  It’s on this spot that developers plan to build a 35-story high rise.  There’s just one problem, says archeologist Ryan Weller, "That whole parking lot that you're looking at was completely contained in what used to be the North Graveyard for Columbus".
( . . . )
Over the years, construction crews discovered not all the bodies were indeed removed.  In 2001, an employee of the archeological firm Weller & Associates, Inc., was watching the excavation for a sewer line (on Spruce Street) when he spotted human bones in the dirt.  Weller says he was shocked to find so many bodies had been left behind.
( . . . )
As today's city leaders plan new developments, they say they're aware of the situation.  "We are standing on a former public cemetery," says Columbus’ director of development Steve Schoeny.  "There may be remains that are dug up. There’s a procedure that we work through how to appropriately dispose of those remains."  Those procedures are outlined in a letter from Ohio’s State Historic Preservation Office, which was sent to the developers ... and the developers are obliged to follow them.

North Market Tower developers add architecture firm to team

The development team for the highly-anticipated North Market Tower is getting bigger.

The project’s developers — The Wood Cos. and Schiff Capital Group — announced Wednesday they are adding architecture firm NBBJ into the mix as contracts with the city are finalized. Columbus-based Schooley Caldwell Architects already is part of the project. The companies hope to have the tower’s design finished in 10 to 12 months, with construction beginning shortly after.

Moving slowly

Rick Harrison Wolfe, executive director of the North Market, said he is asked about the status of the [Market Tower] project “every day of my life.”

Wolfe said lots of communication has gone on behind the scenes, and progress is being made. Both he and Cynthia Rickman, assistant director of development for the city, say they expect to have more details to share in early 2018.

Well-known national architecture firm NBBJ was added to the team in June, joining Columbus-based Schooley Caldwell. Wolfe said changes are likely based on NBBJ’s input, but he doesn’t expect dramatic revisions.

One thing he insists won’t happen: The envisioned 35-story office and residential tower won’t be reduced to a midrise, as the originally proposed towers in the Scioto Peninsula project were.

I posted this comment over in the Hilton Canopy thread on accident, but it's reassuring to hear that we will hear more about this project in early 2018 and that it won't be reduced in size to a mid-rise. Hopefully we will get a groundbreaking for this tower by the end of the year and also find out the final decision on Millennial Tower.

The new state capital budget includes "$1 million for an atrium that would connect the new 35-story office and residential Market Tower with the nearby North Market"

I read some time back that the "goal" was to break ground in Fall of 2018, however I'm sure with permits and other things that take time it will be slightly delayed, but you never know, perhaps it will be on time.  There are folks mad that the asphalt grave yard will be desecrated with a tower though.....so proper removal may take time too

Update from the Dispatch,

Cynthia Rickman, assistant development director for the city of Columbus, which controls the North Market property, said details of an economic-development agreement between the city and the developers are being finalized. They are expected to be presented to City Council by early summer for approval, with an anticipated groundbreaking for Market Tower planned for fall.
