    Restoration is key as construction companies unlock High Street potential.

    Like a missing and long-sought puzzle piece, development of an expanse of High Street from Broad Street north to Spring Street is falling into place with great anticipation.

    Several developers’ plans to add hundreds more apartments to three neglected but strategically positioned blocks will fill a gap between previous projects that stretch from German Village on the south to the Ohio State University campus on the north.

    In the emerging picture, environmental elements color the projects with excitement: A growing vibe of urban cool spills over from E. Gay Street. Welcoming walkability extends west from the newly opened Scioto Greenways. Classic character not available with new builds comes with renovation of historic structures.

    The vision shared by developers and observers alike is that the mixed-use development along this part of High Street and vicinity—combining residential with retail, restaurants and office space—will infuse new energy into Downtown and make it even more attractive for continued improvements. Projects in the works include a possible hotel and five garages—four new and one renovated.
