Urban development in Columbus is showing no sign of slowing. In the past month we’ve heard about plans for new projects at the White Castle in the Short North, a historic church building in Italian Village, a prominently located vacant building near OSU, a big expansion at the main Library Downtown, even more new residences in Italian Village, and the potential of a warehouse conversion Downtown… just to name a few things.

Of course, those are all brand new announcements, and some are likely to not see completion for a year or two to come. Today we’re taking a look at the current batch of construction sites for projects that were announced last year or the year prior, of which there are many.

This month’s roundup features photos and updates on some of the following projects under construction:

  • Jeffrey Park – New large-scale residential community in Italian Village.
  • Battery B – New apartments under construction in Italian Village.
  • The Fireproof – A historic building being renovated and expanded in the Short North.
  • The Joseph – An 11-story hotel and six-story office building located in the Short North.
  • Downtown Bike Lanes – New bike lanes have been added to Spring and Long Streets.
  • Grant and Long – A three-story historic building is being renovated in the Discovery District.
  • Columbia Gas HQ – A new office building at Neil and Nationwide in the Arena District.
  • The Columbus Museum of Art Expansion – A new modern wing is being added to the side of the building.
  • Bishop’s Walk – New condos added on Gay Street to Neighborhood Launch.
  • 250 High – An 11-story mixed-use apartment/office/retail tower at High & Rich, Downtown.
  • LC Riversouth – Two new eight-story apartment buildings in RiverSouth, Downtown.
