Columbus City Schools Auctions Three Sites; Chicago Developer Among Buyers

Columbus City Schools auctioned off three prominent properties on Tuesday. Nationwide Children’s Hospital bought the former Africentric school on Livingston Avenue, local company Galbreath Properties bought the Maennerchor building in the Brewery District, and Chicago-based developer Clark Street Holdings bought 1300 Forsythe Ave., a three-acre site on West Fifth Avenue that most recently held the music industry career center Groove U.

The 7.5-acre Africentric site went for the appraised value/starting bid of $15.025 million. It marks the latest in a long string of real estate purchases for the hospital. The result has been a rapidly expanding campus, particularly along the Livingston Avenue corridor.

Here's an update on the Schottenstein proposal at 3rd and Long St, along with a nice, shiny rendering. I think this is a really interesting project, and love how it incorporates the existing historic buildings, complementary contemporary design, and plenty of ground floor retail.

Mixed-use project with 82 apartments eyed at Third and Long downtown

They couldn't pony up they money to buy that Budget building!? Disappointing.

I'd guess that in time that the market will demand a taller structure at that location.

Developer plans huge mixed-use project west of Riverside Drive

Preferred Living has drawn up plans for a huge apartment project with commercial space in the fast-growing Dublin-Trabue Road corridor on the west side of town.

Plans submitted to the city of Columbus show what the luxury apartment developer has in the works for a 28.7-acre tract on the west side of McKinley Avenue, just south of Trabue Road, including as many as 481 units.

From that article it looks like that trailer park(with over 100 trailers) is doomed. Getting rid of the poor people so more luxury housing can be built, while virtually no new affordable housing is being built anywhere. smh.

Hell they are getting rid of at least a third of what is left of San Margherita. Most of the houses on the south side of Trabue are going too. Disgusting.
Just to put in another fucking luxury development while helping to destroy an historically significant village. I wonder if any of those houses still have the grapes and figs(they would overwinter them and they would survive). Just a damn shame. And nobody gives a damn.

looks like 7 or 8 of the 22 or so homes remaining will be lost.

Screw this development.

Large Apartment Complex and Commercial Development Planned for Trabue Road

Columbus City Council will weigh in next week on a plan from developer Preferred Living for the corner of Trabue Road and McKinley Avenue on the west side.

A 480-unit apartment complex would be built on an 18-acre site south of Trabue and west of McKinley, while a 15-acre site adjacent to the apartments would be reserved for commercial development.

Literally one of those house has grapes or figs or whatever you're angry about.  The businesses along McKinley have fallen in disrepair and the trailer park has zero historical significance and most of those lots are leased anyways(that's how they typically work).  It's history is not in-tact and they're at least keeping Johnnie's so that's a positive.

^^ I never said the trailer park was historically significant. And San Margherita is not intact because we are looking at the remnants. And thanks for getting the whole point of what I said by the 'one grape or fig' comment (/sarcasm).

The tabletop and card gaming store in the strip mall there is very popular and well-run.
