Further north the elevated slab is being poured at Edwards' Wellington project


Greatly appreciate these updates Pablo.  I noticed that your Wellington project construction photo (above) was almost exactly one month after CU's Walker posted this nearly the same angle photo at http://www.columbusunderground.com/construction-roundup-february-2017.  Walker's photo shows the underground parking level before it was covered.  Pablo's photo shows it being covered over by the ground floor slab:

15th and High Update: More Demolitions, Utility Work on High Street Starting Soon

Itís been a little over two years since OSU first unveiled its 15th and High plan, calling for a transformation of the area that would include multiple new mixed-use buildings, a boutique hotel, a parking garage, a redesigned Pearl Alley, and a new public square.

^ WOW!  This is gonna be a ton of work in High Street between 13th and 17th.  But at least its being timed for March to August, when OSU gets less busy during Summer Semester.

More retail announcements for new High Street development under construction across from the OSU campus.  Updated rendering view from Lane & High below:



Chipotle, Starbucks and CoreLife Eatery coming to Lane and High by Ohio State
By Evan Weese, Staff Reporter - Columbus Business First
Updated: March 15, 2017, 4:21pm EDT


Chipotle Mexican Grill, Starbucks and CoreLife Eatery will be among the merchants taking space in a new apartment complex being built at a main gateway to Ohio State University.  Schiff Properties LLC has signed the trio of tenants for the ground floor of its Wilson Place project at the southeast corner of Lane Avenue and High Street.
( . . . )
The project, on a former gas station site, is underway and expected to be completed by early 2018. ... Wilson Place will have 65 rental units and 142 beds, each with its own bathroom.  There will be a garage with about 150 parking spaces, supporting the residences and 10,000 square feet of street-level retail.  Schiff said one 1,839-square-foot storefront has yet to be claimed.

The second Chipotle will be great to relieve the mile-long lines that plague the other one, and the same could be said for Starbucks... But this will also mark the third Starbucks along the campus stretch of High, which seems excessive. I like the addition of the CorePower which is a healthy-eating option and not a huge national chain yet. But with all of these storefronts getting eaten up by national chains so rapidly there are going to be so few spots left for the local businesses and demolished campus haunts to return, which is really unfortunate (but also completely as expected)

Will the existing Chipotle stay? I assumed the one at 13th would be replaced by this one.
