Earlier this month, we profiled construction updates from both Downtown and the Near East Side, but did not get a chance to focus on a few neighborhoods where development is currently most active. So in this installment, we’re featuring photos from Italian Village, Victorian Village, the Short North, University District and Grandview Yard areas.

Check out more projects, information and construction photos below.

    Glad for the photos and Walker did a great job with it. But most of this is bland, boring 2-4 story matchbox stuff per usual in Cbus. Sad. Like architecture to match our overcast skies and blah winters.

      Dude, you are so negative. You complain about these projects being bland but then you complain about Millennial Tower being outdated and boring. Do you complain about everything in life? Try finding the positives in things. You will enjoy life much more that way.

        Yeah, I saw this guy complaining about the Millennial Tower the other day, too. Can’t win with some people :)

      Every city has positives and negatives and each city has its own set of circumstances that drive different things at different times.
      *Be thankful we live in a growing city with its best days ahead of it. Most big cities in our region are headed in the wrong direction.
      Take a deep breath and enjoy the ride…
      Everything is going to be just fine- maybe even great!

    If I could use an emoji to describe this (they are the best way to communicate according to my generation) it would get the in love emoji where the eyes are hearts.

    Do you know what they’re doing behind Harrison apartments there on Lane (not at Tuttle and Lane, a different site behind the apartment complex)? One day there was a building there and the next it was torn down. I haven’t seen anything about what’s going up, I assumed more apartments.

    The midwest, central Ohio and Columbus are lucky to have this construction activity. It improves the region as a destination for work, housing and economic growth. Lets rejoice and celebrate each and every project that brings jobs, population and wealth to our region.

      I agree, Bob… With so many cities in the Northeastern part of the country and in the Midwest losing population, we should consider ourselves lucky to live in one of the bright spots.

    Hey Walker/Brent…
    I noticed the “Stop and Shop” at the corner of North High and 9th has recently closed and they have put up a fence around the property…
    Do you know if they are prepping it to be tore down?
