Developers in Columbus focus on apartments near Downtown | The Columbus Dispatch

A general article on the developments going on near and in Downtown. There is a related chart that shows how new construction permits have grown every single year since 2007, from 5,571 in 2007 to 8,438 in 2011. However, there wasn't really a corresponding large increase in annexation, strongly implying that most of the new construction going on is infill and density increase.

A good article on the West Side area around the new casino being built and how it is beginning to spur development.

I've only lived in Columbus for about 4 months but I'm encouraged by the significant development interest in central Columbus. One thing that really sticks out about Cbus is how spread out it's downtown area is. More infill will really help enhance the vitality of the city. I'd really like to see a large mixed-use development fill in the vacant block at High and Long. A significant project there could help bring the energy of Short North/Arena District into downtown.

The surface lot just to the north of that intersection will be getting developed soon. The historic Atlas Building on the northeast corner is now under renovations to convert it into 100 residential units with ground floor retail. The large lot just to the north of the Atlas will be getting a new building built by the same developer doing the renovations. I haven't seen any plans or designs yet, but afaik, it's been approved for at least 5-stories, and from what I understand, will move forward once the Atlas is finished.

The large lot to the southwest of that intersection, I don't believe, currently has plans, but it's in a prime location and given the redevelopment going on on High and Downtown in general, it's hard to imagine that space staying there. Pearl Alley, which runs on the west end of it, was in the 2010 Downtown Plan to develop a market area with cafes, etc. Not sure when that will happen, though.

Architects see promising decade ahead for Columbus | The Columbus Dispatch

There definitely seems to be a sense that the urban core neighborhoods are the future and that the far suburbs will either slowly decay or not grow nearly as much as in the past. This, to me, is great news. The urban core has been largely ignored in cities nationwide for the past 50 years in favor of the suburbs, and it has proven to be a huge mistake. It's great to see that emphasis changing. It seems the areas to watch are Franklinton, the West Side along Broad, and the area around Parsons.

New Hilton hotel to become gallery for central Ohio talent | The Columbus Dispatch (http://www.dispatch.com/content/stories/life_and_entertainment/2012/02/26/artful-lodging.html - broken link)

Great story about how the new $140 million Downtown Hilton, currently under construction, will feature locally produced artwork in every single one of the 532 rooms, as well as around other parts of the hotel. It's good to see a national chain personalizing a big project like this.

This is a variance request from Riverside Methodist Hospital to build up to an 18-story additional tower as well as adding 5-stories to the parking garage. This hospital is right off of 315.

American Addition Neighborhood Gains Six New Homes, More Soon to Come

An update of what's going on in the American Addition neighborhood redevelopment. This is a strange area. It's very isolated and very suburban in nature, and only had about 50 houses left. The plan is to build more than 100 new infill homes to help revitalize the area. My concern is that they need to go further with it and add other features to make it more walkable given its isolated location. The developer is only building homes, so perhaps once people start moving in, there will be more incentive to see other types of progress, such as sidewalks and retail. It will be interesting to see how this area evolves. Right now, it's basically a blank slate.

This is the page for the new Joseph Gallery that is now being built behind the lot near Marcellas in the Short North. It is the first part of a larger project that will include a boutique hotel, retail, offices and a parking garage. Both lots on both sides of High Street will be taken up by this infill.

There were two development updates from the Victorian Village Commission.

First, the Leafy Dale project on Dennison will include a renovation of the building, and now will have an addition added that will be 4-stories of residential and 2 stories of garage parking.

Second is the reference to the Joseph boutique hotel project, that will be built just north of Marcellas on both sides of High Street. The project has been fully approved now. The related art gallery is already under construction, as referenced above.
