    Sbarro LLC has named its new fast-casual chain Pizza Cucinova – and already has two Columbus eateries in the works.

    Pizza Cucinova (“new kitchen”) will be setting up this fall in an Easton Town Center outparcel at 4044 Morse Crossing, in addition to a new strip center that will be built near Grandview Heights.

    I guess Columbus is the launching point of new restaurant chains now!

    Because nothing says “old-world feel” and “long-term staying power” like parking lot outparcels and strip malls.

    For a more old world feel you’d need horse excrement, superstition and antisemitism. Perhaps throw in some lice and plague for good measure.

    Land exchange will lead up to third phase of Grandview Yard
    By ALAN FROMAN

    ThisWeek Community News Wednesday June 5, 2013 2:00 PM

    Grandview Heights City Council is considering a series of ordinances that would enable Capital Wholesale Drug Co. to remain operating at its current location within the Grandview Yard development and the Yard developer to build a parking lot for Phase 3 construction.

    Council’s economic development committee reviewed and discussed the five pieces of legislation Monday night, June 3, prior to the regular council meeting. Council held second readings of the ordinances.

    Capital Wholesale and NRI have reached an agreement on a land exchange that would allow the business to remain operating at 873 Williams Ave.

    So awesome that they decided to remodel Grandview to make it look like Easton. I can’t wait until they finally get around to leveling that bank block of Grandview Ave.

    What does the Grandview Yard phase 3 have to do with Bank Block on Grandview Ave?

    Grandview was so much cooler when it had the abandoned Big Bear warehouse sitting there all unused and stuff.

    I agree. I’ve been pretty disappointed with Grandview Yard. NRI really pushed the bar (at the time) with the Arena District.

    NRI really didn’t up their game with GY. In fact, I’d say they stepped it down quite a few notches and are in the process of creating a glorified Lennox Shopping Center with some crappily done apartments mixed in.

    Truly it epitomized the transitive nature of life through it’s ad-hoc deconstructionist design. Now it’s serves only as yet another monument to commerce. If only the purity of artistic expression could have been maintained.

    Now, people will sully the area with their presence. Oh, woe.

    I know that you’re being equally snide as I was, but real talk here for a second: in terms of coolness, you’re right. Junction View is cooler than Sbarro. just is.

    That being said, I’m not anti-change or anti-development. I never said that something shouldn’t have been done with empty space. However, two things. First, they’re also doing a lot with space that wasn’t empty. Secondly, and more importantly, if you’ve got permission to slash and burn an entire quadrant of a city/neighborhood- start from bare fucking earth- you should be able to come up with something more innovative and creative. You know they could have done better.
