    But, that makes for lots and lots more excited discussion on the site!

    Wonder which design trends we’ll be ranting about in 2016. ;)

    Hmm. Buildings too far from the ground?

    Of course, they will have to put in the moving sidewalks, to make it more pedestrian friendly…

    Will those sidewalks use oil or methane? :)

    Todays update on this

    http://www.dispatch.com/content/stories/business/2012/10/17/old-landfill-site-to-sprout-homes-retail.html

    They are working on this already, lots of trucks in and out and I think they have bulldozed a big spot alreay. 200 residential units and 265k ft2 retail/commercial. Access road is most of the way from Grandview Ave to the water plant.

    They were floating a Home Depot and Wal Mart right there in the original plan. Wonder who the tenants would be? A Walmart supercenter is 265k ft2 all by itself. A regular sized Home Depot is 100k ft2.

    Not much new in this article from Tri-Village news with the exception it may resemble the Grandview Yard, From Mayor Degraw “It will be similar to Grandview Yard, but on a smaller scale” – perhaps it won’t be as bad as previously expected.

    Grant of $3 million targets shared brownfield tract
    Kaplin Tract, split between Columbus and Grandview, to be cleaned up, developed
    By ALAN FROMAN
    ThisWeek Community News

    Franklin County commissioners Oct. 16 approved the use of a $3-million Clean Ohio Revitalization Fund grant for remediation of a 36-acre site at the northeast corner of Dublin Road and Grandview Avenue.

    Wagenbrenner Development Inc. plans to redevelop the brownfield site, known as the Kaplin Tract, as a mixed-use project expected to include 200 residential units and more than 265,000 square feet of commercial and retail space.

    It’s another nice large-scale project for our community,” Grandview Mayor Ray DeGraw said. “It will be similar to Grandview Yard, but on a smaller scale.

    From here: http://www.columbusunderground.com/wagenbrenner-continues-urban-infill-development-in-2013

    A large portion of the Kaplin site has never been filled, and Wagenbrenner anticipates the need for around 350,000 cubic yards of dirt. They’ve been taking in dirt from their other construction projects in 2012 and moving it there to keep the costs down for filling the site.

    “We’re sitting right now on about 200,000 cubic yards at our other projects, so that’ll allow us this Spring to really get somewhat far along on our big fill operation there,” said Wagenbrenner. “Within the next two years we’ll able to really focus on being ready for development.”

    Now that Steak Escape has already closed their doors, what is planned to go into that disaster of a building. Do they think that design will actually work? It was built for foot traffic. There is no foot traffic in that area.

    There’s parking in the back, right? I’m sure the right concept could do well there.

    I believe the steak escape has been filled since the day it was vacated. It’s the kitchen area for the preschool that is next door. Perhaps I’m wrong

    Signage still says Steak Escape and it’s fairly dark there most times I have been through there.

    Yes there is a parking lot behind, but very small it seems if that building was a max capacity. Akward enterances for it too.

    They cut down all of the trees from the corner of Dublin Rd to the Franklin County Engineer building. It gives the viewer a great shot of Downtown and how large the tract is. You can see Mt. Grand View off in the distance. LOL
