    Love the fact that there’s so much construction going on now that each month’s “construction roundup” has multiple parts!
    Progress, progress, progress!

      The crazy thing is the two construction round up stories that were posted yesterday and today don’t even document everything going on. It’s unbelievable just driving up High Street and seeing how many construction cranes are up with more likely going up the near future.

      • traviscols

        I totally agree!
        I like to drive around and check out construction progress throughout parts of the city at least once a week… One day recently I tried to come up with a number on just how many projects are currently underway.
        We counted (mostly) everything from German Village, through Downtown and Short North (IV and VV included) and also the campus area. We counted every project as one (even if there are multiple buildings involved) and I only counted projects that have started, with at least dirt moving on-site.
        We were able to come up with over 100! (I wasn’t going to mention this on CU, because I thought it may sound as if I was exaggerating) but including it in response to your comment seems like the perfect place to bring it up.
        If you are pro-development as much as I am, it’s certainly an exciting time to live in Columbus!!

  • I was just downtown and surprisingly steel is already rising at Two25 Commons. Perhaps even more surprisingly is the stairwell and elevator cores for the second Lifestyle Communities building are starting to grow above street level.

      Was there a crane base in place at Two25 yet? I drove past a few days ago and also saw some steel rising but no crane. Kind of interesting.

      Those elevator shafts have been in place at the second LC building for about two weeks now. It seems like they have been doing quite a bit of work on the foundation. Hopefully they start going up soon. The Swan Cleaners next door has also been demolished so hopefully we see that start to go up soon.

      Speaking of elevator shafts, I noticed the Park’s Edge elevator shafts are already up to about 8 or 9 stories. That one seems to be going up very quickly.

      • I did not see the crane base yet. I find it really weird too how the steel that is there is pretty much right in the center of the building and looks like it is about 20′ high now. I don’t think I’ve seen that before on any other buildings.

        Yes, I also saw the shafts for Park’s Edge but I expected them to go up fast considering how fast its twin was built. I was just more surprised by the LC building because the first one has been under construction for over 3 years now I think and has only just recently topped out.

          That first LC building definitely took WAY too long and it’s still not done yet. I would imagine the second one will go up much quicker, but who knows.
