That's a good use of an abandoned RR bridge! Is the trail going to cross Goodale and continue south along the RR to the Arena District?
@Pablo, I didn't hear anything about that, but that would be a great way to get to the arena district. Not sure who owns that land.
Harrison West Rail Trail is open and ready to ride on:
Also, I talked to someone about future trail improvements in that area and a lot are coming in the next 12 months!!
Is there a map showing where it is and where it goes? thanks
Thanks for the updates, everyone. So far we know that the trail will run in front of 600 Goodale and extend over the Olentangy river, connecting the existing path going north to OSU, south to Downtown and west to Grandview. Construction will begin in early 2013. We hope to share ODOT and city plans as soon as they're complete and made available.
Construction on 600 Goodale is moving along. We've begun framing on the north end, as pictured below.

Couple new photos of the development & the rail trail, here:
Here's a photo of where the trail ends on the other side of the bridge...

Yeah, very cool to see the skyline from up high!
Thanks to everyone for your interest in our project and sorry for being delayed to join the conversation.
We are aware of the location and believe that a quality product with the proper emphasis will do very well, located in between Grandview and the Arena District. In other words, this will not be a typical apartment living experience, this building will look and function in a unique and more meaningful way! Although I'm sure there were other product type options for the site, our group is focused on building developments of high design with an incredibly strong sense of community in locations exactly like this. We specifically emphasize, wellness, philanthropy, sustainability and innovation through local partnerships, programs and events going on daily to bring our vision for work and life to communities.
We will be happy to share the exciting bike path extension ODOT and City of Columbus are building on Goodale as we see the final design. We know this will make both areas more bike-able and connected. We also are available anytime to answer any questions or concerns.
Don't hesitate to reach out to me directly. Brett@kaufmandev.com
Thanks again, Brett
Regarding your statement above on wellness, what kinds of measures are you taking for sound proofing and air quality? I understand that anyone living/working within a quarter mile of major highway arteries, rail yards, loading docks etc are living in high risk air quality "hot spots".
I'm also curious about the specific types of sustainable attributes and innovations you suggested.
Construction on the trail should be finishing in the next couple of weeks with more planting and the lasts bits of fencing and signage. Currently it will temporarily stop at Goodale street. The trail at the north end continues on street into the Harrison West area. This trail was developed as a connector for the Harrison west and surrounding neighborhoods. There will be plenty more trail development in this area in the coming months and years...this looks to be just the start.

Social welfare platform Besa announced yesterday a new partnership with Kaufman Development, the company building the 600 Goodale apartment community in Downtown Columbus. Beginning in March, Besa will manage volunteer opportunities specifically designed for Kaufman communities, which includes The Gramercy, a 322-unit apartment development in New Albany, in addition to 600 Goodale, which will begin accepting residents this Spring. This partnership will allow residents to easily sign up online for volunteer opportunities and track hours volunteered through Kaufman initiatives.

a view from the bike path of the roof going on:
I saw a window going in yesterday too.
Looks like the building is just about topped out:
Have there been any updates on the bike path that's supposed to go down Goodale and connect these apartments?
Thanks again for the interest in our project. 600 Goodale is really starting to take shape, and we just released floor plans and pricing on our website (livekaufman.com/communities/goodale).
We're excited to share more information about the bike path extension near 600 Goodale. Here's an image of the proposed extension on the west side of the Olentangy and the north side of Goodale. The path will connect the Arena District, Downtown, Grandview and OSU.
