6) 34 W. 9th Avenue - new construction - 3-story, 18-unit apartment building (still under construction)



Two vacant houses were demolished for this project.  The September 2016 streetview has a smaller view of the demo'd houses (one looked pretty good, one not so good)  This project is located just across an alley from the rowhouse renovation:



Here is a rendering of the front facade that will face W. 9th:



Here is May 2017 construction photo of the backside of the 34 W. 9th building.  This view is from the neighboring Taco Bell property which is also now a construction site.  The backside of the rowhouse renovation is the other building in the photo:

7) Taco Bell site - six-story, 95-unit apartment building with ground-floor retail (with a new Taco Bell as a tenant) and structured parking (began construction spring 2017)



Here is a rendering of the project that will replace the suburban-style Taco Bell.  It is being developed by Skip Weiler and David Ruma.  More about this project at https://www.urbanohio.com/forum2/index.php/topic,9206.msg787479.html#msg787479 and http://www.columbusunderground.com/south-campus-taco-bell-bw1



This is a May 2017 view of the construction site from 9th and High:

Definitely a lot happening in a small area. It's a shame the quality of architecture isn't better.

The City is currently reworking utilities on High between 7th and 9th with the streetscape improvements planned for 2018. My commute down High is certainly interesting.

The Bier Stube was my social life and one of my employers the 7 years it took my to get my 4 year degree. 
I am SHOCKED Campus partners renovated buildings rather than bulldozing them.

Does it still have all those satellite dishes on the roof?

Craig owns it now, and I think one of them is still up there.  The old owner, Doug, was an early adopter of satellite TV for sports.

Fun fact:  The Stube and the convenient store there is owned by the owner of Varsity Club, the businesses just rent.  Every few years Campus Partners offers to buy the land, he says no.

Lots of turnover at SCG recently. Aveda (which took up a huge spot in the west building has moved out), as have Pizza Rev, Fusian, NutritionX and Yoga Six.

Hopefully the completion of nearby projects and streetscape work next year will bring some stability and beef up the roster of tenants.

Had to be a typo, just look at any of the big builds in the Short North and you can see that this will be almost impossible.  It would've said in the approval if they were prefab or not but judging by the steel framing that doesn't seem like a possibility.

Proposals for High Street and 11th Avenue to be Reviewed

The University Impact District Review Board (UIDRB) will hear two new proposals from Buckeye Real Estate this week. One calls for a new three-story building that would sit in front of an existing apartment building on North High Street. The other would require the demolition of five existing houses on East 11th Avenue.

That proposal calls for a new four-story building at 99 E. 11th Ave., as well as a second, three-story building behind it. Each would have parking on the first floor and residential above, adding up to a total of 24 apartments and 55 parking spaces.

Scrapped. The five houses will remain, but in a different form, likely without the party porches. The additional units at the rear will be built though.

Glad to hear. The current houses have a lot more warmth and character than the proposed building.

Sounds like an ok compromise to me. I was in favor of this, but improving the existing houses while still adding the building (and more units) behind it sounds good too.

Drone view of Luxe Belle from http://www.dispatch.com/business/20180318/swanky-student-apartments-near-ohio-state-flood-market

The six-story, 95-unit project is being built near 9th & High across from the South Campus Gateway on the site of a former Taco Bell.  The Dispatch Drone starts in the courtyard of the South Campus Gateway across High Street from the Luxe Belle.  The Luxe Belle building is mostly hidden by the Gateway sign, while the former 7/11 next door is being used as a construction staging site:


As the drone rises, the Luxe Belle building under-construction emerges:



View of the Luxe Belle along High Street next to the recently renovated apartment building at 9th & High.  It looks like nearly two full stories have been framed in since our last update from about a month ago.  The Dispatch article this update came from - http://www.dispatch.com/business/20180318/swanky-student-apartments-near-ohio-state-flood-market - restated that the Luxe Belle developers do expect to open this coming August.  We'll see!!

Another Luxe Belle construction photo - the six-story, 95-unit project being built near 9th & High across from the South Campus Gateway on the site of a former Taco Bell - from https://www.columbusunderground.com/columbus-construction-photos-march-2018-we1.

Looks like the framing is moving pretty quickly.  And it better, since the developers say they will be opening Luxe Belle in August!

After 14 years in business, the Ugly Tuna Saloona is shuttering its doors at 1546 N. High Street in the Gateway building.  The popular nightlife spot was one of the original operating tenants of what was originally known as the South Campus Gateway when it first opened in 2005, but an expiring lease has led to the decision to close:

Another Luxe Belle construction photo - the six-story, 95-unit project being built near 9th & High across from the South Campus Gateway on the site of a former Taco Bell.  This photo is from the Columbus Navigator at https://www.columbusnavigator.com/free-taco-bell-for-a-year/ and hi-lights a new sign on the building.

The sign advertises that Luxe Belle will offer "Free Taco Bell every week for 1 year - for the first 20 leases", presumably in the new Taco Bell that will be going in the ground floor of this building.  With three big off-campus luxo-dorms coming on the market for this Fall, it looks like the competition for leases is heating up!
