    It’d also be nice to restore some of the street grid but that’s a bit of a pipe dream. No matter, so glad to see some of those mid-century squat office buildings with huge parking lots start to go!

    Both were built in 1966 as part of the Galbreath/Nationwide’s Urban Redevelopment Corp. “Market Mohawk” urban renewal project.

    I agree that restoring north and south 5th streets would be nice. It would be beneficial to the overall development of downtown, especially that part of town and the growing south 4th street area.

    There is a nice Dispatch article today on this. http://www.dispatch.com/content/stories/local/2015/08/25/Apartments-and-hotel-are-planned-for-Downtown.html

    ….but…it also includes info on an extended stay hotel at 382-404 East Main that is a horror show-looks like a five story mini-prison! Not so nice comments about it from the Downtown Commission either.

    *and this dog design is from Alliance Hospitality, and David Patel, while the crapper design for the 12 floor Nationwide Blvd. Indus Hotel was Ohm Patel. Any connection I wonder(besides having crap cheap looking designs)?

    There is also this article from August 14th http://www.bizjournals.com/columbus/print-edition/2015/08/14/extended-stay-hotel-on-tape-for-east-main-street.html

    ^^ Thanks I completely missed it and did not see any articles on it under ‘Development’.

    Why do these things always have to look so awful?

    This one is designed by M+A Architects while the 12 story hotel on Nationwide is by OHM Architects.

    I am glad the Downtown Commission apparently is not too happy with the priso..er..hotel.

    And regarding the apartment building in the Dispatch article:

    Nate Caplin, who markets condominiums in the building to the south at 199 S. 5th St., said neighbors are concerned that the new apartments would block their view of the Downtown skyline.

    Oh well. Nobody has a right to certain views as far as I know. If everyone thought like this there would not be a skyline to view.

    Took a few photos of the two buildings that are proposed for demolition, just for the sake of posterity. ;)

    What ever happened to the transit hub proposed many years ago that would encompass Greyhound, local and regional transit (i.e. trains) in one area (which I believe was to be in the vicinity of the land under the bridge on High St just north of Nationwide Blvd)?

    Town Street Apartments Downtown Moving Forward
    October 2, 2015 1:07 pm – Brent Warren

    A proposal from Bluestone Brothers and Crawford Hoying to tear down two small office buildings on Town Street and replace them with a five-story mixed-use building is moving forward after being approved by the Downtown Commission.

    The project was back in front of the Downtown Commission this morning for an update to the streetscape plan around the building. Nothing major, but wide sidewalks, large planters and tall trees are being approved for the area. Should look really nice.

    It looks like the old buildings are finally being prepped for demo, I drive by this area every day so I’m excited to see how this turns out!
