This recent Dispatch article about the downtown apartment boom also had a video showing drone views of some of the projects:  http://www.dispatch.com/news/20180225/downtown-sees-flood-of-new-apartment-buildings

Here is their drone view of The View on Grant project as seen across from Mt. Vernon Avenue:



I will admit this is looking better than I thought it would.

Update and photo-tour of the View on Grant project from CU:  https://www.columbusunderground.com/project-update-view-on-grant-bw1

According to the article, work on floors 1 thru 3 will be wrapping up next month.  The first residential move-in is scheduled for mid-April.  The top floors will be the last to be finished, with a target completion date of June 1.  A new Stauf’s coffee shop will open on the ground floor by early April.

Here are a few exterior photos (apparently taken during one our recent morning flurry storms):






And here is a view from the rooftop patio area on the new addition to the building.  More interior photos of the View on Grant are available at https://www.columbusunderground.com/project-update-view-on-grant-bw1

I did the Urban Living tour and was VERY impressed by the units (and view) of that building.  It was easily in my top 3 for all the buildings on the tour.

If you want to do a full review of your top favorites I'm sure many (myself included) would appreciate it!

I'm probably not going to do a full review but the  View on Grant and Lear Block Lofts were the winners, for me.  Many of the units on the tour were u/c so there was more conceptualization more so than visual (Brunner, Hubbard Park Place, 44 N. High).  I highly recommend doing it next year.

DesignGroup Announces Groundbreaking of Culinary Arts Building at Columbus State

Architecture and design firm DesignGroup has announced the groundbreaking of a state-of-the-art development to house Columbus State Community College’s School of Hospitality Management and Culinary Arts.

The $33 million project is set to be complete in 2019 and will be named after Columbus native and restaurant developer Cameron Mitchell, who has given $2.5 million in support of the project.

Located at 250 Cleveland Ave., the Hospitality Management and Culinary Arts building will double the school’s enrollment capacity to more than 1,500 students and feature seven new kitchens, a full service teaching restaurant, bar, bakery and café, and a 100-seat culinary theater. Students will also get to make use of a beverage and mixology lab, food production gardens, and outdoor classrooms.

That Culinary Arts Building (aka Mitchell Hall) is the start of some great improvements for the Columbus State downtown campus.  The Culinary Arts Building is being built on the large triangular surface parking lot just south of the Center for Technology and Learning at the corner of Cleveland Avenue and Mt. Vernon Avenue.  Below is an aerial view of the triangular parking lot and a 2013 Master Plan for the same area: https://www.columbusunderground.com/columbus-state-president-presents-vision-for-revitalized-discovery-district-bw1






Here is a late May view of the parking lot being torn up for the Culinary Arts Building at the corner of Cleveland & Mt. Vernon from https://www.columbusunderground.com/construction-roundup-may-2018-we1



Here is a view from across Cleveland Avenue of that same parking lot area.  Note that the portion of Mt. Vernon Avenue that currently runs just south of the Center for Technology and Learning has been removed and replaced with campus green space:

Vernon Avenue are in the background:
