The second part of this month’s construction update includes many new photos from the Arena District, Short North, OSU and Fifth by Northwest neighborhoods. In other news, CASTO announced a new 392-unit residential development for Dublin’s Bridge Street District. The Wood Companies unveiled new renderings for their Hubbard Park Place project. Construction work officially began on the next phase of ODOT’s 71/70 reconstruction, which includes the revamp of the 18th Street Bridge. And the University District revisited parking and density guidelines to outline how the neighborhood will continue to grow and evolve.

    Biked down to Buckeye Donuts the other day and was amazed how different the area looked.

    So glad that old Wendy’s was demolished in favor of some housing. One of the worst parking lots in the city, logistically. It’s nice they will still have a business there.

    And just across the road the North Campus area will soon be almost erased. It’s sad because I lived there for two years, but then I remember that those dorms badly needed upgrading.

    Anyway, great pictures! Still a very exciting time to live here.

    The larger dormitory buildings will remain in place on north campus. Most of what’s being demolished are smaller buildings. You can see the final rendering of the transformation here:

    Has anyone heard anything about Jeffrey Place? That seems like such a prime location and now that the urban market is roaring back, I’m surprised it isn’t back in the picture. I’d expect Nationwide or some other big investor to be licking their chops over that land.

    There’s a photo of Jeffrey Park up there (the site formerly known as Jeffrey Place). Utility work has begun:

    Ah, ok, thanks. For some reason I thought that project was just near or adjacent to Jeffrey Place. I saw that they did a little more work on the new streets that were there but still saw empty blocks last time I paid attention.
