City Center Mall Demolition Underway
The demolition of the City Center mall is officially underway, and the new Columbus Commons project is moving forward. The skywalk over Rich Street connecting the former mall to the parking garage has already come down, and much of the southwest corner of the structure has been stripped away over the past few days. The Dispatch reported last week that the project was getting a financial boost from Franklin County Metro Parks, which contributed $2 million toward the development of the new Downtown greenspace.
Several demolition photos can be found below, and we’ll be continuing to provide updates and the demolition progresses.
