    7 Uses for Failing Shopping Malls
    AMANDA ERICKSON
    JAN 08, 2013

    If the American-style shopping mall is dying, we could easily be left with an awfully big pile of useless real estate. What should become of these empty retail shells?

    In fact, some innovative ideas are already emerging. Across the country, malls are being retrofitted into doctor’s offices, office space, and call centers. But some developers are taking a more creative approach. Below, a collection of some of the most interesting ideas we’ve heard for what comes next for the shopping mall.

    Wasn’t sure where to put this, but given it’s close proximity to Columbus Commons it could be counted as a spinoff development:

    Capitol Square corner to shine anew under Arshot redevelopment plan

    Arshot signs Heartland Bank to give life to corner of State & High
    Heartland Bank is joining Arshot Investment Corp. in an effort to transform the southwest corner of Capitol Square in Columbus into a gateway to South High Street.

    The Gahanna-based community bank will do its part by moving its downtown office from 65 E. State St. a block east to the corner of State and High, where it is buying space on the first floor of the former Cord Camera Centers Inc. building at 101 S. High St. Arshot affiliate Town Square Ltd. acquired the building for $465,000 in December and the developer will convert the top three floors into office space.

    “Downtown is becoming a community,” he said. “Downtown deserves a community bank.”

    Downtown is becoming a community

    Hey hi. Becoming? That’s like saying “The United State is becoming an influential world power.”

    Pretty cool. I just walked by that corner twice yesterday and was wondering when something was going to happen with that uber-prime ground floor space.

    That makes three corners of Capitol Square containing some type of scrolling marquees. Only one more to go (State & Third!). ;)

    Per the article the top 3 stories are being converted to prospective condo office space by Casto.

    More about the flashy lights …

    Plans for the building call for two digital tickers, measuring about 3 feet tall, one directly above Heartland’s storefront entry and another at about mezzanine height. A 1,400-square-foot LED mesh screen would cover part of the building’s top three floors, wrapping around the corner, according to documents filed last year with the Downtown Commission. The mesh is made up of slats – similar to a venetian blind – that allow those inside the building to see out while producing a solid image to those viewing the board from the street, Schottenstein said.

    Wow this is really exciting! Between High Point, the Lazarus building, Denovo, and the Lifestyle apartments, I feel like we’re finally making a dent with all the empty space on High Street south of the Statehouse.

    I’m excited about increased activity downtown. With more business around Columbus Commons and apartments, we might finally have a complete connected core along High Street from German village/Brewery District, Courthouse Square, Columbus Commons and Apartments, Statehouse, Nationwide/Arena District/Convention Center, and The short North.

    Yeah it really is filling in quite nicely. Just need Casto to announce their plans for the lot abutting the City Cenrte garage and get some infil at the lot between Gay and Long street.

    Snapped a photo of the High Street entrance to the park a few days ago. Now that the buildings are going vertical, you can kind of start to see what the park entrance will look like. I think it still looks very wide and open and accessible from this side (at Town Street).

    Columbus Commons adding two food shops
    By Mary Vanac
    The Columbus Dispatch | Wednesday April 3, 2013 6:38 AM


    The two vacant buildings on the south end of Columbus Commons, top left, will be occupied by Mikey’s Late Night Slice on a permanent basis, and by Jeni’s Splendid Ice Creams during seasonal events.

    Spring will bring two new dining options for Columbus Commons visitors.

    Mikey’s Late Night Slice plans a permanent location at the Downtown park, and Jeni’s Splendid Ice Creams plans a seasonal shop there.

    Mikey Sorboro hopes to open his sixth Late Night Slice store at the former Burgers, Dogs and Fries location on the Commons by April 15.

    They started working on the building today. Lots of interior demolition appears to be happening.
