    420-Unit Tuller Flats Apartments to Break Ground in Dublin This Summer
    March 23, 2015 4:02 pm – Walker Evans

    Large scale urban redevelopment continues to make progress in the historic center of the city of Dublin as the Tuller Flats project from Casto is expected to break ground this summer. When we first wrote about the development last year, the original proposal called for 392 apartment units housed in 30 new three-story buildings, arranged in a more traditional perpendicular street grid than what much of Dublin is used to.

    The project has now grown to now include 420 apartment units, though the configuration of the site remains mostly the same.

    While I would love to be the one to take this on, it is just too much financial risk for me…but….

    Somebody needs to put a nano-brewery right in the heart of all this development. Just a brewery and tasting room with a a bar, a couple TVs and some comfortable seating. Get their parking lot approved for food trucks. Fill growlers out of the tasting room and focus on self-distribution of their products in the craft beer focused bars and restaurants in the Dublin region such as Matt the Millers, The Pint Room, 101 Beer Kitchen, The Daily Growler and a few others.

    With all the walkable mixed use development going on that is supposed to cater to the young professional….this type of venture could be a gold mine.

    There are roughly 15 breweries in Columbus and the near downtown area? I think a small brewery in the north side could see really good business from all of us in Dublin, Powell, and the other outlying areas that can’t readily go to Grandview or the Short North if we want to get this kind of experience. I think the beer aficionados up here would love to support a truly “local” establishment.

    Just my opinion.

    +1 to all of that.

    I’d be incredibly surprised if there’s not some type of brewery/brewpub/growlershop that goes into one of the retail spaces here:

    Demolition Begins at Future Bridge Park West Site in Dublin
    April 30, 2015 7:00 am – Walker Evans

    Earlier this week, work officially began on the Bridge Park West development in Dublin, which includes the demolition of two medial office buildings at 94 North High Street on the west side of the Scioto River. Once completed, the Bridge Park West development will include 41 condos, 15,000 square feet of office space and 15,000 square feet of retail/restaurant space. The condos are expected to be a higher-end for-sale product, ranging in price between $300,000 and $1.7 million.

    Was hoping for something more like this

    but oh well..

    This doesn’t look that bad

    Kinda reminds me of rural Ireland.

    Those renderings seem a bit optimistic about the ratio of pedestrians to cars. Dublin doesn’t seem to be much of a walking city – from this development’s location, would people walk to a store or to work? Or would they drive five minutes?

    That scope/scale of development is planned for the other side of the river:

    To each his/her own I guess. I think the layout of phase one has a lot of potential:

    Walker, this type of development is pure socialism. :-D

    I prefer the more oldworld style design but I think this project is a huge step even if it isn’t my favorite astetic . Right now Dublin isn’t particularly pedestrian friendly but this will vault it forward. I know it also makes their city much more attractive to people like myself who prefer walkable environments.

    For example if say the lady and I were going to have kids, well in a few years from now when this is done and they would be approaching school age Dublin could now offer me a walkable environment and a good school system (assuming there isn’t some huge shift in overall quality in CPS in that time). That to me screams of good foresight by the city. They know what assets they have, they know what assets they need to stay relevant to new generations and they’re taking steps to realize both. I think this project could be the start of something very big for them; a good move away from a classic suburban sprawl. Toward a cool backfilled pseudo-urban environment.

    I agree with this completely. I really enjoy living in an area that’s walkable and don’t have a desire for a big house out in the suburbs. But I also don’t see myself sending my future kids to Columbus Public so this would be a great compromise. As you said I think this is an incredibly smart move for Dublin.

    (assuming there isn’t some huge shift in overall quality in CPS in that time)

    I agree with your assessment of the Dublin development, but I just wanted to point out that you don’t need the entire CPS district to have a huge shift to get a good education for your children. There are several good schools already within the district and others that are improving quickly thanks to grassroots initiatives.

    While I’d love nothing more than to see the entire district soar, I feel like it’s always worth pointing out that an individual child attends an individual school… they don’t attend an entire district. ;)
