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).

I was taking my dog for a walk after work yesterday and took this shot of the UDF development from where the Grandview Mercantile building was just leveled for the new Pizzuti project.  I actually really have liked the UDF building as there is variation a bit to it, not just one plain box building.  There are set backs and what not.  It will be nice to have a quick and easy convenience stop again once UDF re-opens.  In the distance, you can also see the White Castle building coming along.

Some renderings of the currently under construction streetscape projects through the Short North. Some have renderings of completed buildings that are currently under construction.









Here is an overhead rendering with certain private projects outlined as well. A good sense of all (some) that is going on in the Short North.

I was walking to a friends cookout the other evening and snapped a few updated photos of the Short North construction.  Obviously a lot of different things going on all at once, will be amazing in about a year when so much of this end is finished and just smooth to move through.  I will say the sidewalks they are building and the bump outs are huge!!  I'm really looking forward to a more pedestrian friendly High Street!!

Uggh. Where to begin?

Would it kill NBC4 to show the renderings that I assume 99% of their viewers haven't seen so they can see what this will look like when it's done? And why doesn't the city engineer talk about the fact that we will have hundreds more trees when it's done, not to mention rain gardens, etc? Also, the bump outs are described as protection for parked cars? OK. But they're mainly there to maximize pedestrian space and make crossing the street safer. Can we not emphasize that?

I mean, NBC4 could have even just shown b-roll of the finished Phase 1 right up the street so people can get a sense of how this is going to look when completed. Oy. ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

Also, props to the camera guy using a telephoto lens to compress the streetscape to make it look as f***ed up as possible. ;)

Multiple updates about The Castle from CU:

Late May construction photo from https://www.columbusunderground.com/construction-roundup-may-2018-we1


News that Penzone Salon + Spa will be joining White Castle and Orangetheory Fitness as retail tenants in the mixed-use development:  https://www.columbusunderground.com/penzone-salon-spa-opening-in-castle-development-in-short-north-sp1

The parking garage in The Castle development quietly opened its 105 public parking spaces yesterday.  These 105 public spaces comprise half of the 210 total parking spaces available in the garage:  https://www.columbusunderground.com/new-short-north-parking-garage-open-to-the-public-we1


If you notice at the above photo, there is a drive-thru entrance lane located next to the public parking entrance off W. 2nd Avenue.  This is part of an unique drive-thru system for the new urban-style White Castle that is replacing the former suburban-style White Caste previously on this property.  Below is a photo of the drive-thru ordering setup inside the parking garage:

^ The Dispatch article on the Penzone salon also mentions that an unnamed women's clothing store will be opening in the building as well. With those four tenants, I believe the ground floor is fully leased

Close-up photo of the "Castle" sculpture at the corner of The Castle development at W. 2nd & High.  The "Castle" sculpture uses the tile from the previous White Castle restaurant that was on this site:

I haven't been through the Short North in about a month. Has the 800 N High building started going vertical yet?

I live in the Short North (Italian Village), and they are starting on the 3rd floor now.  They aren't building the elevator/stair shafts all at once like other developments I've seen go up, they are just doing them floor by floor.  I'm excited to see this one take shape though, quite the addition to the area!!  I'll try to snap a picture next time I'm by it.  Also, the new WIDE sidewalks on the new street scape project are taking shape finally and the extra pedestrian space and bump outs are going to be amazing!!!  The construction is thick down in the neighborhood lately but the finished outcome is awesome!!  Growing pains for progress I suppose....

Columbus Won't Punish Developer That Failed To Meet Tax Break Agreement

Quote
City officials say developer Pizutti promised to create 217 new jobs while building a Short North parking garage and nearby office space. In return, the 2012 agreement granted Pizutti a 10-year, 75 percent property tax abatement.

The developer, though, created just 20 jobs that paid more than $12 an hour, which was the city’s minimum in order to count toward abatement deals at the time. The city has since increased that minimum to $15 an hour.

The wages associated with those 20 jobs came in at about $1.2 million per year, far below the expected amount of $13.3 million.

Columbus - "Come sign any tax abatement agreement and you won't have to abide by it, but we'll still honor the tax abatement!"

(Feel free to move to a different thread if it belongs elsewhere.)

In all fairness to the developers, the city's method of accounting is what's screwing with the numbers here. The Joseph development has wayyy more than 20 people working there across a restaurant, bar, 11-story hotel, 5 floors of fully-leased office space, 2 retail stores, a parking garage, and an art museum. By any truly objective measure it's a massive success

Exactly. That article by WOSU oddly leaves out a lot of very important details.

Short North parking changes postponed until January



Short North parking rules that were supposed to be implemented by Thanksgiving now are targeted to take effect Jan. 22.

The city announced the delay on Tuesday, and said: "Transitioning of timing implementation will create an opportunity to further educate the public on the parking plan, more in-depth training of the city's enforcement staff, and allow for more time to install the necessary signs for the parking plan."

The 711 building seems to loom over Italian Village. I'm interested to see how the masonry looks on the lower levels. No activity yet on the parking garage portion of the project.

Anybody know how many floors are up now? I drove by about two weeks ago and it looked like they were working on the fifth floor.

I took a stroll through the Short North last night grabbing a drink with friends and then my drive to work this morning.  I included a picture approaching from Italian Village where I can see the White Castle building pretty much complete.  View is approaching behind the Fireproof building.  Regarding the Moxy Hotel site, they are currently working on floor 5.  The streetscape project obviously is moving along, I personally love all the extra wide sidewalk space and bump outs.  Once complete with all the trees and plantings it will be beautiful!!  It also appears they are putting on the stone details on the 711 High building as well as the glass on the retractable rooftop.  Apologizing in advance if the pictures are a bit large, I'm not tech savvy on how to reduce them for this site, anyone who can feel free to edit!!
