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.

I got tear-gassed on 9th back in my heyday.

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.

One of my buddies poke a guy's eye out in front of one of the meathead bars in the early 2000s.

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.

I don't see how that's possible unless portions are pre-fab...

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.
