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!!
Above 5-stories and you’re in to a whole ‘nother ballpark when it comes to building codes….based on the idea of a 5-story ladder on a fire truck. 5-stories equals much cheaper construction. 5 stories is also a very acceptable/comfortable density of people.August 17, 2012 1:10 pm at 1:10 pm #487321
Whether it’s 5 or 15 stories, surface lots are disappearing. Big thumbs up!August 17, 2012 1:11 pm at 1:11 pm #487322
This really is great news and the location was totally unexpected. I do hope some retail is available (might be a great spot for a small upscale convenience store). The other thing that I love is the timeline …. breaking ground in September!August 17, 2012 1:13 pm at 1:13 pm #487323

+1 Retail would be awesome, especially with the residential development west of huntington. The area would need it the way they are building.August 17, 2012 1:14 pm at 1:14 pm #487324
Another Downtown surface lot filled in. Keep it up, NRI! ;)August 17, 2012 1:16 pm at 1:16 pm #487325
Still not quite Buffalo, but we’re getting there. :)August 17, 2012 1:50 pm at 1:50 pm #487326
NRI Adding 120 More Apartment Units to Arena District
Published on August 17, 2012 9:40 am
Nationwide Realty Investors (the development arm of Nationwide Insurance) is filling in yet another surface parking lot in the Arena District. A new five-story 120-unit apartment building has been proposed to sit facing The LC Pavilion across Neil Avenue. The apartment development is being called Flats on Vine Phase 2, which will compliment two similar buildings located just north on the other side of the railroad tracks.

I doubt there’s retail on Neil. The image shows the same landscape treatment as the Flats on Vine just to the north.August 17, 2012 2:24 pm at 2:24 pm #487328
Great news, I think this will aid in attracting retail to the Grandview Yard.August 17, 2012 2:29 pm at 2:29 pm #487329

How so?August 17, 2012 2:55 pm at 2:55 pm #487330
One thing I think it will add …. interest in graduating professionals to stay/come to Columbus. If I was told “Come work for Nationwide and live directly next to the new Ballpark and NHL Stadium” I’d give some serious thought to living here.August 17, 2012 2:59 pm at 2:59 pm #487331
More people living in the the area to buy stuff? NRI has already stated it is targeting the Yard for retail, though it is having trouble attracting retail due to the recession. 120 more market rate units plus all the other stuff within 2 miles can’t hurt.August 17, 2012 2:59 pm at 2:59 pm #487332
also, was just looking at the Flats on Vine’s website …. it states “222 space under-unit parking garage” … I don’t think that’s true.August 17, 2012 3:21 pm at 3:21 pm #487333
I’m curious how they plan on sharing the amenities between Flats 1 and 2. Are they going to build a walkway over the railroad tracks or just make renters from Flats 2 walk outside then underneath the railroad tracks?August 17, 2012 3:28 pm at 3:28 pm #487334
