Hopefully not another CDDC bait-and-switch. They get a good firm to do the master plan (Robert Stern here, MKSK for Columbus Commons), then execute with the worst developers possible (Carter...).
Cols. Commons was designed by EDGE, not MKSK.

Correct. But MKSK (or MSI at the time) did the original plan, which was much stronger.

It was a pretty picture not based in reality or budget. Their plan didn't take into account keeping the parking garage below fully functional. It would have been physically impossible to bring Town St. through the park as MSI suggested and keep the garage below as CDDC required and within the budget. I agree that the Carter project is awful.

Business First's instagram feed also had this older overhead shot of the New Vets Memorial:  https://www.instagram.com/columbusbiz1st/




Last Saturday's Dispatch contained this chopper photo showing the New Vets Memorial and the COSI Underground Parking Garage across Broad Street under construction.  Couldn't locate a digital image, so I scanned the print photo:



And CU had this ground level view of the COSI Underground Parking Garage from February:  http://www.columbusunderground.com/construction-roundup-february-2017

10 developers in 4 teams named finalists for $500M Scioto Peninsula project



The $500 million plan to redevelop the Scioto Peninsula is closer to having a master developer. CDDC has winnowed the list of potential partners to four development teams, made up of 10 companies based from New York to Los Angeles.

Georgetown, Daimler, and Kaufman look like the best pick to me as far as first impressions go, with Crawford Hoying second.

Carter should be banned from the city for life after HighPoint, and Buckingham from Indy seems very cheap/meh from a quick glance at their work.

I like the new-urbanism chops of Crawford Hoying and SunCal.

I like the design chops of Daimler and Kaufman, and the financing chops of Georgetown.

Some image updated form the flurry of work happening around COSI right now too.

How many cranes can you spot? Too bad COSI blocks at least 3 more in RiverSouth.

Veterans Memorial project taking shape on Scioto Peninsula

The country’s first National Veterans Memorial & Museum is taking shape on the western edge of downtown.

With construction about halfway through, I toured the site on Columbus’ Scioto Peninsula where the former Franklin County Veterans Memorial building stood until 2015.

Found this new photo of the Veterans Memorial project on reddit.  Nice view from W. Broad Street, now that the concrete structure has been freed from all the props and forms.  Funny thing about the reddit post was that the poster thought the building looks like a new X-Men HQ:  https://www.reddit.com/r/Columbus/comments/6jklf3/charles_xavier_is_getting_a_lot_less_subtle_about/?st=j4g9gl5h&sh=7842d9e9

Hard Hat Tour: National Veterans Memorial & Museum



The National Veterans Memorial & Museum is starting to take shape on the Scioto Peninsula. The unique building’s concrete shell is now in place and the surrounding land is being shaped to eventually hold 250 trees, a reflecting pool and a network of walking paths.

Amy Taylor of the Columbus Downtown Development Corporation (CDDC), which is managing the project, recently gave Columbus Underground a hard hat tour of the site.

WOW!  That really looks good!

Crawford Hoying would be a good choice.  This looks like a more contemporary version of their outstanding Dublin Bridge Park project.

This looks great. This is a spot that has been begging for a proper urban neighborhood. Columbus's riverfront is turning into a premier area in the state.

It really should have been one a long time ago. Granted it's not a navigable river and the floodwall didn't go up until the Year 2000, but I don't think this exact area had flooding issues or else Central High wouldn't have been there.

Meh, I'm not all that impressed.  They seem to have only just matched the bare minimum of what the city asked for.  They have the few requested towers, but the majority of the development is all exactly the same height and boxy shape. 
It's basically the Arena District or Easton with a few towers.  We've seen that already, let's see something different for Franklinton.  I'd like to see much more variation in style and height.  Not everything needs to be glass and/or brick, and not everything should be 5-6 stories. 
It's boring stuff, and looks like a planned neighborhood rather than having any organic feel.  The peninsula is a blank slate. Going back to the same development styles again and again and again in Columbus has been stale for a while now.  Think outside the box- literally.

That's odd.  It was working last night.

I wonder if they jumped the gun on making this website public, because there hasn't been any local announcements about this.
