Construction Roundup: June 2013
It’s hard to believe that 2013 is nearly halfway over, but a quick glance back to December’s Construction Roundup reveals that a lot of progress has been made throughout the city so far this year.
In June alone, we’ve seen several interesting development announcements and updates. The demolition of Poindexter Village started at the beginning of the month to mixed reactions. New planters were installed around Capitol Square. A 324-unit apartment complex was announced in Dublin near the AMC 18 Theater. Pre-leasing for apartments began at The Lane mixed use development, which also landed a Cameron Mitchell restaurant. CASTO began renovation work on a Downtown warehouse that may become a residential development. We checked in on the Fifth Avenue Dam Removal project to see how that has been progressing. We spoke with folks at the City of Columbus Land Bank to find out how they’re salvaging, repairing or deconstructing properties in their ownership. And last but not least, the City of Columbus officially announced a $842 million bond package that will appear on the ballot this November, which would mean even more construction and development throughout the city in the future.
Some of the photos below also feature updates on the I-70/71 Highway Project, The Flats II apartments and the new Columbia Gas HQ building in the Arena District, The Hub mixed-use building in The Short North, the Harrison Park Apartments in Harrison West, Aston Place in Victorian Village, new university buildings at OSU, The Lane mixed-use development on Lane Avenue, and Downtown apartments at both 600 Goodale and Neighborhood Launch.
