Just walked my dog by tonight. It is actually looking really nice. I wish I was in town for the open house. Hopefully I can read here how it went.August 23, 2010 3:48 am at 3:48 am #399166
Looks good. I really like parking ‘garages’ like that, they aren’t obnoxiously big but they look way better than surface lots.August 23, 2010 7:48 pm at 7:48 pm #399167

Yeah, better than a surface lot (and half the size of one with equal spaces) but I really wish they would have placed retail in the ground floor of the garage around the outward-facing perimeter. Probably a tougher sell to fill it all in at this point, but would look a lot better than a dark cavernous space like it does now.August 23, 2010 8:31 pm at 8:31 pm #399168
I will def. be at this open house and love this project, but I do have one major concern. If you put the parking garage on the inside, why not open the restaurants to both GY and Goodale BLV? What I mean is, if i’m walking down Goodale I essentially have to walk around the building to go eat at one of the new restaurants. Then, if I eat outside, all I get to look at is a parking garage. I think a lot of my concerns will be taken care of with later phases, but for phase 1 its not quite as pedestrian friendly as I hoped. I also 100% agree with Walker’s point.August 31, 2010 3:24 pm at 3:24 pm #399169

Developers and Grandview Heights officials say the community finally will see the potential of Grandview Yard during an open house set from 6 to 8:30 p.m. Sept. 1 at the site.
Tina Guegold of Nationwide Realty Investors, which is developing the project with Equity Inc., said she thinks it will be a fun and informative evening.
“We hope (the public) will walk away with the quality of the project and what to expect of the future phases,” Guegold said. “Everyone in the community will have a chance to explore the site.”
Grandview Yard is a 90-acre mixed-use development in the southeast corner of the city, at the former home of warehouses belonging to defunct grocery chain Big Bear.
Among the projects in the first phase are Urban Active Fitness Center, Hyatt Place Hotel, a two-deck parking garage with 509 spaces, and a 90,000-square-foot office building, which will house Jason’s Deli on the first floor and M+A Architects on the third.

Will this strictly be an outdoor wandering on our own accord or will there be limited viewing of inside the buildings?August 31, 2010 4:46 pm at 4:46 pm #399171
Might bring the pedicab over. This place adds a new dimension to pedicabbing with the hotel.August 31, 2010 4:53 pm at 4:53 pm #399172

Grandview Yard plans open house Wednesday evening
Project’s first phase opens with hotel, gym and deli in place

The public will get to step into the Grandview Yard project Wednesday, more than a year after Nationwide Realty Investors announced the initial tenants for the $40 million first phase of the mixed-use project on the eastern edge of Grandview Heights.
A Hyatt Place hotel, an Urban Active Fitness and a Jasons Deli will be open for business on the site formerly occupied by a Big Bear supermarket warehouse. The final touches are being put on an office building to be occupied by M&A Architects, while the OSU-themed Buckeye Hall of Fame Grill remains under construction with an anticipated November opening date.
Area residents are invited to a community open house Wednesday evening as a way of introducing the project. The event will begin with a short presentation and a question and answer session with Brian Ellis, president and chief operating officer of Nationwide Realty Investors.
“This will give us an opportunity to tell folks whats there today, and what we expect will be coming down the road,” Ellis said, referring to future plans to add more offices, retail and housing at Grandview Yard. There is currently no set timetable for future expansion.
The open house will take place from 6 to 8:30 p.m. Wednesday, at 775 Yard St. (900 Goodale Blvd.,) with parking behind Urban Active Fitness, north of Goodale Boulevard.
“There is currently no set timetable for future expansion” … that’s a bummerSeptember 1, 2010 5:14 am at 5:14 am #399174
I’ll be over for a preview event in this morning. Anyone have any specific questions about the project for Brian Ellis? ;)September 1, 2010 5:42 pm at 5:42 pm #399175

That was one of the only problems I had from the get-go with the design. It turns its back to the existing urban fabric on Goodale. While the hotel may be a “360-degree” building, as Brian Ellis said in the interview, but why aren’t the other two buildings – particularly the one on the corner?September 1, 2010 7:27 pm at 7:27 pm #399177
Just skimming through WalkerÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s interview and the mentioning of this being a Ã¢â‚¬Å“SPORTS and entertainment focusedÃ¢â‚¬Â area, do you think they may be priming this to be a potential new home for the Crew or some other professional expansion sport? Just wonderingÃ¢â‚¬Â¦
