Keeping up with construction projects in Columbus is no easy task. New sites break ground on a regular basis without much fanfare, and with prominent projects in nearly every neighborhood, it can take hours on a sunny Sunday to travel around town to view and photograph them all.

Instead of going for a comprehensive look, we’ve decided this month to check in on a handful of sites in a handful of neighborhoods, split into two parts for your viewing convenience. Part one, below, includes updates from Downtown, RiverSouth, Olde Towne East, Parsons Avenue, Bexley, Franklinton and other surrounding areas. Stay tuned for part two!
