I accidentally deleted this the first time, whoops, let’s try again
It was barely a mention during the Downtown Commission meeting earlier today but during the Vets presentation they mentioned plans for Broad St. to go on a diet in the memorial area, with the addition of bike lanes and a grassy median. Hopefully the impact will be dramatic enough to push through the plans for the rest of Broad through downtown and beyond.December 30, 2014 12:42 am at 12:42 am #1057076
I came across this the other day regarding the new Vets Memorial. I don’t recall seeing all of these renderings in past news stories.December 30, 2014 9:59 am at 9:59 am #1057094
that looks amazing! Did you check out the park going next to it? BeautifulDecember 30, 2014 11:04 am at 11:04 am #1057116
I know it’s just architectural design license, but I like the tall look of the buildings behind it on the Peninsula. It gives an idea of what things might look like in the upcoming years and how it could become an extension of Downtown.December 30, 2014 3:48 pm at 3:48 pm #1057166
I generally do not like modern architectural designs, but I will say these renderings look pretty amazing. The aerials are particularly cool.December 30, 2014 3:52 pm at 3:52 pm #1057168March 29, 2015 1:58 pm at 1:58 pm #1069425
Vet’s is no more…October 23, 2015 7:19 pm at 7:19 pm #1098758
Does anyone have information on when the Scioto Peninsula will be finished?
I heard “late fall” but no specifics.
Thanks!October 28, 2015 3:47 pm at 3:47 pm #1099420
I understand the ribbon cutting for the Scioto Mile is planned for November 10th. Now that the riverfront is complete, it would be nice to hear an announcement about the further development of the peninsula. Even an announcement regarding the planned underground garage would be nice. My expectations would be a Bridge Park like development, though hopefully with a little more height.October 28, 2015 4:28 pm at 4:28 pm #1099426

I’m not sure there’s any development about which I’m more hopeful/excited/nervous than this one.October 28, 2015 6:28 pm at 6:28 pm #1099443
Would love to see a complimentary mini-Downtown so to speak, with several mid to high-rise mixed-use buildings, but I suspect it’ll be more like 3-6 stories. Regardless, I am definitely looking forward to some proposals popping up soon. It’s been very quiet in terms of proposals/discussion about the peninsula beyond Vets since the redevelopment plan was first announced. Considering all the activity across the tracks, I would’ve thought some things would’ve come up by now.October 28, 2015 7:18 pm at 7:18 pm #1099445
We haven’t heard anything about Nationwide Realty’s plans for the old Graham Ford plot, and there haven’t been any updated plans on the development south of COSI along the riverfront–and certainly, nothing in between 315 and COSI.
Safe to assume there’s wheels in motion.October 28, 2015 9:23 pm at 9:23 pm #1099451
I’d like to see a number of mixed use 8-10 story buildings, all with ground floor retail and all with a walkable street grid. Any parking structures should also have the ability to have ground floor retail space at least to built out at a later date if there is no immediate need for it.
I’m hopeful that the completion of the mile will be quickly followed by announcements of plans for the peninsula.October 28, 2015 11:10 pm at 11:10 pm #1099458
hopefully the peninsula will stay a greenspaceOctober 29, 2015 12:31 am at 12:31 am #1099462
hopefully the peninsula will stay a greenspace
It’s actually more of a grayspace with all the surface parking that’s there, and a couple of grass lots that are primarily used for goose poop storage and not much else.
If greenspace is what you’re looking for, you just got 33 acres of it installed right next door, which appears to be much better programed for recreational activity than the goose poop lawns. ;)
