^Isn't it a 4 story building now? I would think that's too short for a tower crane.

I still wouldn't be shocked if they use one mainly because of how tight and expansive the site is at the same time.  The layout is actually similar to the High & Lane development and that got one.

^ I thought it was going to be six stories back off High Street a bit.

The High St. building is four-story and the office building just off High is six.

A little add-on to show those skeptical folks that we have a ton of growth going on in our city  ;)


I was looking at that great pic and wondering just how all the new stuff would fit in.
Now get a little more creative and have a color or something for (should be filled in) parking lots, like the ones along and just off High in the Short North! ;)

It has gotten to where seeing a surface lot near High is disturbing to me lol.

*also you might squeeze in the 8 story building on Long, and the new convention center parking garage behind that hotel. And that does not even show the stuff that can't be shown like some of the Riversouth stuff and the 15 floor building to go up by the Holiday Inn. Lots to watch go up!

The UDF building has certainly been setting a great pace. Puts most others to shame.

Has GOT to be a typo because at that price, good luck!  That's almost double what the mortgage would be on a new build at the Jeffrey and 1,000 less sqft.

Their website says $3,300 I think. Was looking at it the other day. And they had a cheaper option I thought.

*Edit. They do have a two bedroom for $4,450. Not sure why it's so much more than the $3,300 two bedroom.

Latest Design for Bollinger Tower Hotel Approved



The Italian Village Commission approved the latest design for the renovation of Bollinger Tower last night, clearing the way for the 11-story building to be converted into a hotel with a two-story addition in front.

The project has been through numerous iterations since the Columbus Metropolitan Housing Authority first agreed to sell the building, located at 750 N. High St., in early 2016. Residents were offered vouchers to move to affordable housing elsewhere, and by mid-2017 all of the nearly one hundred former residents had moved out of the building.

I had to see for myself and my guess would be penthouse and that those are VERY limited like maybe 2-4 units in total.

So I know they are going to be doing a 2nd floor restaurant/bar which is clear from the renderings however the new overall rendering shows all this glass on the top of the building, that currently does not exist in any form, which would almost suggest adding a floor and by my count I'm seeing 12 floors on this view, and could be a true roof top location for a restaurant/bar.  Anyone else know anything about this possibility based on this pic?

Wow...pleasantly surprised Bollinger was approved without a pedestrian plaza. It will be nice to have a street wall along High once this is completed.

I don't think you're far off, more than likely a restaurant or event space.

A rooftop bar was proposed on top of the 12 story tower. In March the IV Commission was concerned about that bar. Maybe that program item has changed? They were OK with the rooftop spaces on the new, lower addition. https://www.bizjournals.com/columbus/news/2018/03/21/italian-village-commission-sees-updated-plans-for.html

Parkside on Pearl is back with a revised design, and with increased density - 65 units up from the previously proposed 47

I actually like this design better (minus the IMHO unnecessary building signage), and the new renderings also show how it relates to the neighboring Moxy Hotel/office project under construction on the Haiku site,

Those are really nice renderings. I agree that this is a great improvement over the previously approved design. I like the signage though. Wish they'd have actual balconies facing the park though. They seem to be Highpoint (gasp!) type "balconies".

*Edit. Also, according to the Short North Design Guidelines map, this is in the Short North.

The street frontage part where the green space was does seem to connect the building to the street and makes it less of a "Lane Avenue high rise" type of a look. And the rooftop space on the 12th floor would be an great thing. The views! :)

*re: the rooftop space...DO IT! If some drunk does happen to tumble over the side it will be their own stupid fault!

An improvement and will go very well both with the Moxy and the Hub. Love the rooftop space and the higher density/smaller unit/hopefully a bit smaller price units. That it was delayed so long was a blessing in disguise.

Well if they fall off of a balcony on the 12 story, they won't be able to sue you because they are dead. But those pesky relatives are a different story(no pun intended).
