    Making an impression: Surprised visitors call Arena District ‘something special’

    By Lucas Sullivan

    The Columbus Dispatch

    Saturday March 17, 2012 6:14 AM

    Thousands of fans from California to Brooklyn jammed the Arena District yesterday to capture some of March Madness. By 11 a.m., many of the restaurants and bars around the arena were at capacity.

    “We had heard this was a nice arena, but we never expected this — the brick sidewalks and the brick roads — just beautiful,” said Paul O’Brien, 64, who traveled from near Memphis, Tenn., to watch Belmont take on Georgetown.

    By: Walker

    There are fewer and fewer places remaining for development within the boundaries of The Arena District, but new acquisitions will allow the neighborhood to continue to grow for years to come. New residential development will eventually be planned west of Huntington Park according to Brian Ellis, President of Nationwide Realty Investors.

    Columbus Mileposts | May 4, 1978: Nationwide’s Downtown bet pays off
    By Gerald Tebben
    FOR THE COLUMBUS DISPATCH
    Friday May 4, 2012 5:24 AM

    One Nationwide Plaza, a 40-story building jutting into N. High Street at a 45-degree angle like the bow of a ship, was a gamble for its insurance company owner and a bet on a revitalized Downtown in the 1970s.

    Bit of city green targeted for Arena District offices
    Business First by Brian R. Ball, Staff reporter
    Date: Tuesday, June 5, 2012, 11:16am EDT

    The Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design certification quest by two office buildings in the downtown’s Arena District could earn developer Nationwide Realty Investors Ltd. some city cash.
    Columbus City Council last night voted 6-0 on emergency legislation approving up to $94,000 as a reward for the environmental friendly design of an office building now under construction at 10 W. Nationwide Blvd. and the planned construction of a second office complex west of Nationwide Arena.

    Good for Nationwide. They might even be wise to give back to the community the amount of this money in some sort of public asset…a statue, fountain, etc.

    Woe, glad to see that city council was all over this “emergency” legislation to pass more money on to Nationwide.

    Flats on Vine getting companion apartment project in Arena District
    Premium content from Business First
    by Brian R. Ball, Staff reporter
    Date: Friday, August 17, 2012

    Nationwide Realty Investors Ltd. is preparing to fill its last big piece of development land west of Nationwide Arena with a building of 120 apartments.

    The five-story building would sit on Neil Avenue south of Nationwide Realty’s Flats on Vine apartment complex, which opened in 2010.

    The development arm of Nationwide Mutual Insurance Co. on Aug. 28 will outline plans for the apartment project and its neighboring office complex for Columbia Gas of Ohio to the city Downtown Commission. Construction of the apartments could start as early as September and be completed in a year if the proposal secures the commission’s approval.

    Wow, more great news. Hopefully they’ve included a small portion of retail space….seems like an ideal spot for a baseball themed bar/restaurant.

    I wish there was another pedestrian bridge over the railroad in between Neil and the one by Arena Crossing. I know its not far but it feels like forever if you have to walk down to Neil to get back up and around

    Where do I buy stock in ‘5 story new builds’? Seriously, this is something like the 25th five story building I’ve read about going up in the past year. The landscape is really going to change when these are all finished, and I honestly get the feeling we’re nowhere near being done. Exciting times, Cbus!!
