Franklin County Treasurer Ed Leonard plans to buy $16 million worth of bonds to finance the expansion of a parking garage near the Arena District, an investment he said will both make money and save the Convention Facilities Authority millions of dollars in interest.
The additional 900 spaces at the 37 W. Vine St. garage are expected to help support growth in the Arena District, the Short North and convention and tourism business.February 26, 2012 5:11 pm at 5:11 pm #473349
A construction team removed the metal structure from the top of the parking garage and drove it up High Street. Pretty wild. Here’s a quick photo I took as they got ready to place it on a semi on Vine Street:February 26, 2012 5:19 pm at 5:19 pm #473350
Saturday traffic is usually gridlocked from Convention Center/North Market traffic, but yesterday it was triple bonus gridlock. I ALMOST rode on the sidewalk to escape.February 26, 2012 6:24 pm at 6:24 pm #473351

I’ve never minded it too much. The upper floors are somewhat masked, though the design feels a little 90s-era dated. And the ground floor is mixed-use with Kooma and the offices of the Greater Columbus Sports Commission. ;)February 26, 2012 9:30 pm at 9:30 pm #473353
I seem to recall the garage won a design award when it was built. The expansion will be presented to the Downtown Commission for the 2nd time this Tuesday. I got a glimpse at the renderings – they looked OK to me.April 29, 2012 8:18 pm at 8:18 pm #473354

Vine Street Partially Converting to One-Way for Parking Garage Traffic
Published on September 5, 2013 5:00 am
If you’ve visited the northern end of Downtown during a busy weekend, you’ve likely sat in a traffic bottleneck at some point this summer. Between convention-goers, gallery-hoppers, sports-fans, market-shoppers, office workers, new residents and other visitors, the area can get fairly congested on days where multiple events overlap.
To alleviate some of this congestion, the Columbus Department of Public Services will begin the process of converting the two-way stretch of Vine Street between Front Street and High Street into a one-way east-bound street. In response to the change, the section of Wall Street between Vine and Spruce will reverse to run one-way north-bound, and Spruce will reverse to run one-way west-bound between High and Front. A bonus for visitors to the area will be the addition of seven new parking meters installed on Vine Street.

I really wish they could underground these utilities…September 5, 2013 8:48 pm at 8:48 pm #473361
I really wish there was a way to get rid of the NM parki……ahhhh hell. It’s beating a dead horse at this point. :PSeptember 6, 2013 10:20 am at 10:20 am #473362

Seems that with all of the construction going on along Vine and on High, now would be a great time to do that.
(BTW, speaking of buried utilities and construction in this area, earlier this week the city accidentally dug into a gas line along North Wall, behind Yankee Trader. They had to close that block for hours and they mobilized about a dozen fire trucks to block access. The whole area smelled like nat gas.)
I really wish there was a way to get rid of the NM parki……
Rick Harrison, the new NM director, has mentioned that he would like to expand the NM into part of their lot. That would be a nice development.
