Hey OHIO!

Here is a posting of some central city developments that have taken place in Columbus this decade.... play by play run down baby.


This condo tower is in the finishing phase, it sits in the Arena District
North Bank Tower, there is an attached loft building as well (to the right).





This is a 22 story condo tower, Miranova (on the right):

The mid-rise category
Carlyle’s Watch Condominiums/ Retail

Early Century High Rise
8 on the Square
Located at Broad & High
The building on the corner will feature NYC Times Square styled ads and dressings.



This is a condo infill in Columbus' Short North, along N. High St.
The Dakota


More Short North Infill to the right, seemingly matching an existing building on the left


Now condos (small one bedrooms) and retail, on the ground floor
The Yukon Building


A retail freeway "cap"



And then you have massive infill projects, that take up whole city blocks like this one called the "South Campus Gateway" This is located in the University District, near Ohio State. It was completed in 2005/2006.

The Arena District is sq. miles of urban infill that's based around Columbus' downtown NHL arena, its very mixed use.

Apartments to the very back, retail to your right, and offices above, and the arena to your left, with ground floor retail.

Of course Columbus has many warehouse conversions on going...

The Brunson Infill






Connextions Lofts


The Historic Seneca Hotel is being converted into upscale apartments, retail, and offices

This one's actually a 70s office conversion into condominiums.
199 S. 5th St.




There is a lot of brown field rebuilding in central Columbus, this entire mining and industrial site is now rehabs of old warehouses into lofts/apartments and a complete new build mixed use project (retail, residential) , there's a lot of this going on in central Chicago too, and other previously, industrial areas.

Jeffery Company Warehouse into apartments straight back, infill to your left and right




This entire industrial site is becoming a new neighborhood


Another Industrial Site Conversion
Liberty Place

Original Brewery District Buildings leading to Liberty Place Infill





Another industrial site conversion
Harrison Park

Ohio Loft, mixed use
BEFORE

AFTER



And as you tell i have stuck to only some of what has been built, this is some of what's coming
Time Tower, next condo tower infill over 20 stories
http://cll.bizjournals.com/story_image/82939-400-0.jpg?rev=2 (broken link)



As you can tell the list can go on and on, I have barely scratched the surface of Columbus' urban infill of today, and it's the same with many other central cities around America. I hope everyone enjoyed a catch-up on the central city development in Columbus the last few years.

Thanks for the pics! It's very interesting to see the new developments. I have looked at online pics of Columbus, but would love to see more from current residents. It would be great to have pics of the various suburbs also.

Well thank you for looking at them. These are just pictures of some larger scale developments in the central city. Of course, there is always new development in Columbus' suburbs and more suburban areas.

I will try to put together some pics of those too.

Great pictures.

Not sure about the giant soccer ball coming out of a building, but I'm a little surprised how hip C-bus looks.

Default Doing it right?

Growing up in Columbus I can remember when the new mall opened downtown in the 80's and was suppose to be the beginning of downtown revitalization. Unfortunately, that never happened and it is pretty much shuttered. The Short North and Brewery districts which focused on housing and lifestyle seem to have got it right this time.
