The month of May has been a busy one in the realm of urban development and construction, and we’ve decided to change things up a bit with our Construction Roundup format to reflect that. Instead of just providing information about what’s pictured below, we’re going to give you more of a recap to all types of development news from the past month for a more well-rounded review.

New gateway features were publicly proposed for Town and Rich Streets in the eastern portion of Franklinton, which aren’t too far from the new Columbus Idea Foundry location, which landed a $350,000 grant last week. We checked in on the status of iconic Leveque Tower (picture below) to see how renovation work is coming along. Homeport revealed more information about their ongoing work in revitalizing the King-Lincoln District. Work continued on the development of the “City Campus” plans where multiple city government office buildings reside. Nationwide Realty Investors announced that they had begun pre-leasing their Flats II Apartments (pictured below) in anticipation of a Fall move-in date. And last but not least, OSU continued working on multiple construction projects (pictured below) on their main campus while we checked in with OSU Planning Professor Jennifer Evans-Cowley for an extended interview.

This page only contains half of the development news from May, so once you’ve browsed the photos below, CLICK HERE to jump back to Part One of the May 2013 Construction Roundup.
