    Latest rumor was a burger place with a golf pro’s name on it. Any golf/burger fans heard any chatter?

    Still nothing new with regard to the Yankee Trader building on High St. We are developing the upper two floors as residential units and the street level will be developed as retail , possibly restaurant space. We have not yet determined for certain if we will be leasing the space to another operator , or putting in our own restaurant . All options are on the table. We are strongly considering doing our own restaurant …but still undecided. Whatever goes in that spot will be high end., to be certain.

    We will know more mid-summer on our plan for the 457 High St building.

    Thank You for checking in.

    Flip Side commits to Yankee Trader site, clearing renovation plan
    Premium content from Business First by Brian R. Ball, Staff reporter

    Redevelopment of the former Yankee Trader building in Columbus will begin this summer, bringing apartments and a Flip Side gourmet burger restaurant to the site near the North Market.

    The property at 463 N. High St. was sold to an affiliate of Triad Architects Ltd. in mid-2011. The design firm plans to renovate the second floor for its offices and the top three floors will be divided into 11 apartments.

    The 20,000-square-foot project has cleared the city’s Downtown Commission review and has resolved all but a few details with the Historic Resources Commission.

    Wow. I won’t have to go to Easton. Funny that the Easton location asked for beer.

    I am sure it will be a hit with the convention crowd, but personally I am tired of all of the chain gourmet burger places popping up. Is it that much better than something I could get at Barley’s?

    Great news to me! Flip Side has great food and a terrific beer selection. I look forward to it opening there.

    The Ohio Department of Development approved a tax credit relative to this development, according to The Dispatch. Hopefully, it can now move forward.

    It would be nice to see Wall St. closed off (which doesn’t serve much of a purpose IMO) and have Barleys and future YT tenants spill out the back with patio space.

    That would be great but I wonder about service access to those businesses. While we are on the topic, I would love to know whether the North Market would ever consider developing the parking lot. My thinking is the additional parking spots being added across the street (and in the area generally) may make alleviate the necessity for the lot. Perhaps Walker, who I believe is on the North Market Board, can shed some light.

    With what seems like the imminent closing of the VV Giant Eagle approaching, I think an expanded North Market with expanded hours could capitalize to a degree on the loss. VV has always prided itself on walkability and though further, I think most would make the effort.

    Sounds like a brilliant idea!

    Given that the parking lot is from what I’ve heard a major revenue stream for the market and that they’d likely go well into the red without it, I doubt it. Not to mention it’s very convenient for their customers.

    The only way I could see it happening is if whatever would be developed would have enough dedicated spots for the market patrons and provide equal or greater income for the market.

    never say never, but the lot is pretty important to the well being of the market.

    The City of Columbus owns both the North Market building and the North Market parking lot. It is a very benevolent landlord but, as has been said, that lot is a breadwinner for the North Market and would probably take s lot of string pulling to alter.

    That is a loading zone. The businesses abutting it pay to use it (and other businesses on the adjacent blocks benefit), the dozen or so meters there are always full, and because of the one way traffic on Spruce there is no where else to go other than High St. That alley is a lifeline.
