It’s been a very long time since we had regular Construction Roundup photo updates, which means a lot of progress has been occuring if you haven’t been out “crane spotting” during the pandemic.

Below, we’ve got some photo updates from Downtown Columbus, The Discovery District, The Arena District, Franklinton and some other nearby hot spots.

Make sure to subscribe to our weekly newsletter “The Urbanist” so you don’t miss out on future construction, development and urban planning updates.
