    Campus Partners seeking developer input on High Street holdings

    Business First – by Carrie Ghose

    Friday, February 18, 2011

    Developers are getting their crack at suggestions for rebuilding a section of North High Street near Ohio State University’s campus, including the former Long’s bookstore site and 5 ½ acres adjacent to the South Campus Gateway complex.

    Campus Partners for Community Urban Redevelopment, the university’s real estate arm, on Wednesday sent out a long-promised “request for information” soliciting ideas from various developers.

    I’m glad to read that Campus Partners is being clear about OSU’s plan to eventually house all sophomores on campus. At this point, I would not like to see any student housing being added to that area south of the Campus Gateway. I would much rather see more pressure put on landlords to improve the student housing that already exists in the area. Code enforcement has been reduced lately, despite its being sorely needed.

    I am not a big fan of forcing sophomores to live on campus. It does not seem necessary and blurs the focus of the University. Being able to find inexpensive off campus housing was very important when paying for my education.

    “Campus Partners assumes that all existing structures will be demolished by the selected developer, although we may consider proposals that re-use all or a portion of existing structures.”

    I sure hope so. I don’t think the gateway is ugly, but I don’t really want to see a lot more buildings of its style all over High St. either.

    Another architectural opportunity. This could be pretty exciting. And it’s nice to see the arts being included at the Long’s Bookstore site.

    I think moving sophomores onto campus, or closer to it would be beneficial for everyone. Students add very little to a neighborhood except for trash and noise.

    What stops OSU’s campus from moving east across High St?

    +1. OSU will need to address the affordability and flexibility of on-campus housing options. Do they require campus food plans for all students living on-campus? That’s usually the big money-maker.

    Technically nothing but the master plan has them moving west.

    They also provide excellent opportunities for burglars to ply their trade, since they (students) typically have more expensive things lying around their houses than do other neighborhood residents.

    Zoning variances?

    bad history is more like it. The Big U likes its side of the street where it makes the rules. Cooperation has always been a struggle with OSU, rhetoric yes, action sometimes when it’s necessary.

    The UAC has consistently voted not approve any zoning changes East of Indianola.

    Gateway’s developer solicits proposals to build on 5 nearby sites
    Sunday, February 27, 2011
    BY MARLA MATZER ROSE
    THE COLUMBUS DISPATCH

    The South Campus Gateway development has had some success, but Doug Aschenbach knows it’s still a work in progress. Gateway opened in 2005 and features 184 apartments, an independent movie theater, a dozen modestly priced restaurants/bars and about 10 mostly student-oriented stores, including the Barnes & Noble-run Ohio State University bookstore.

    Good to see the south Wendys remain. Hate to lose another inner city Wendy’s.

    An expanded “northside” library would be nice as part of a development.

    wow. so this is what all of the talk about osu trying to eliminate prevailing wage on campus construction projects is for? so that they can bring in the cheap immigrant labor and extremely poor craftsmanship on these new upcoming projects.
