Work continued in August on a wide range of construction projects spread throughout Downtown, The Short North, German Village, the University District and many other neighborhoods. As always, we’ve documented the announcements, the progress, the milestones and the completions in both written and photographic form for your review.

The biggest planning news of the month came in the form of the unveiled Scioto Peninsula Master Plan announcement, followed by the Southeast Downtown Plan in a close second. Construction officially began on The Joseph development in the Short North, following the closure of the second surface parking lot that it will replace. An impressive modern mixed-use Downtown building was announced by Kaufman/Daimler, just across the street from where LC is adding a new apartment building, which received a much-praised updated rendering. Worthington is growing denser with the announcement of apartments at The Shops at Worthington Place. The old Barrett Middle School in Merion Village may also be getting the residential conversion treatment thanks to Homeport. And in smaller-yet-still-significant news, another Short North surface lot will disappear for infill development, AEP is planning a new workspace building on Goodale in Grandview, and a new apartment development is under way in the University District on Neil Avenue.

Additionally, our construction photos below feature updates on the I-70/71 Highway Project, The demolition of Poindexter Village, The Flats II apartments and the new Columbia Gas HQ building in the Arena District, The Burwell condos in The Short North, the lobby renovation of LeVeque Tower,  The Hub mixed-use building in The Short North, Aston Place in Victorian Village, the resurfacing of High Street (pictured up top), and Downtown residential developments at Neighborhood Launch and Highpoint at the Commons.
