Interesting. Don't recall those plans changing, but it has been super quiet for a very long time.
Is that the one on Broad, across from Franklin Park? If so, it doesn't look like a bank. Note all the little balconies. I'd rather have it be condos than a bank.
Their renovation of the main building (the 'station' building?) is truly amazing. When shopping centers renovate old, existing buildings it almost always winds up looking like ..... a renovated old,...
Looks fantastic. This is a great addition to downtown. I especially like the room pic. Let the larger conventions begin!

The current buildings were know as Alhambra Court, and I lived there in the mid 1980s. Heres why losing these courtyard buildings is sad, the people who live in buildings like form community, and...

Too may people in one place and its going to have a negative impact on the neighborhoods to the west.
I think the site in Bexley is a new bank building, not an apartment - those plans were abandon awhile ago.
For better or worse, I think the ticket tax repeal issue will still get on the ballot. The Dispatch story on this says they have until August 7th, and they would only need 284 more signatures...
*Ohio State didn't get a special exemption*
There's only one school and sport this applies too. Ohio State Football. No one cares about high school or small colleges. Ohio State, by whatever means...

I for the most part support these types of use taxes. You need money for maintenance and operation of facilities and it has to come form somewhere. My biggest gripe with this tax is somehow, some...
I recommend taking a step back from getting too focused on "urban architecture" and think along the lines of a broader urban design. A good resource is Great Streets by Allan Jacobs. It references...
Ambrose and Eve has great cornbread! But agree, good cornbread in Columbus is a rare thing.
According to our good friend Al Gore, we were already supposed to be gone. They have trouble keeping their stories straight. That tends to happen when you lie.
I'm going out on limb here, but my prediction is in 6 months we're all going to be talking about how cold it is.
EDIT: This article talks about warming temps by mid century. Didn't the global...
Oh Giorgio. how utterly uninformed are you. The move was a good one - for the residents, for the CMHA, and for the Short North. I know it's tempting to find a corporate greed conspiracy behind...
Oh if reality were really as simple as your binary oversimplification. the people enjoying the hotel rooftop bar will not be hypocritical if they enjoy the place while ALSO decrying mistreatment of...
