    There’s an interesting article in the current issue of the Short North Gazette which talks about the “Where’s Our Sidewalk Signs.” There seems to be a groundswell of interest in the subject of walkability in Grandview Yard which has resulted in, uh, pretty much nothing.

    The walkability within Grandview Yard is/will be outstanding. The railroad bridge is a pinch point. It will be fixed. You can really see the shape of the Yard with the roads open. Wait until all the Nationwiders arrive. Wait until they extend 1st ave, that will make it supremely walkable to Grandview proper.

    That railroad isn’t even in the Grandview Yard. The walkability of the Yard itself is great. That’s just the City of Columbus and wasn’t part of the Grandview Yard plan, but it’s definitely spilling into the area.

    There is no safe way to get to Grandview Yard via foot or bicycle from the East. Considering the ga-billions which have already gone into the project, one can’t help but wonder why this situation continues. Grandview Yard is walkable once you’re in it, but the scale is for cars. It’s like Easton, only without a Pottery Barn. Whether one thinks this is a good or a bad thing depends on one’s reaction to the marketing materials (“suburban living with urban style!”).

    It’s a totally separate project area, the Yard ends before the railroad in Columbus and Grandview. Columbus is responsible.

    Also, there’s not really a way to get to Yard from the west either.

    I’m not sure anyone on foot is meant to get there. The site is a castle and everything around it is the moat.

    Why is not safe by bike? There are no bike lanes/sharrows/etc., but it doesn’t seem any more dangerous than any other road without those bike features.

    Not safe for bikes because the lane narrows beneath the bridge and there’s no berm. Not safe for pedestrians because there are no sidewalks and no berm, which means walking on the road while dodging cars and bikes. One can navigate the sloping pile of rocks which line both sides of Third Ave but, sorry to say, this is best reserved for the young & sprightly. Completely inaccessible to the disabled and those pushing strollers.

    Yea the Yard Giant Eagle site is a HUGE fail imo as well. The side street should’ve been the main feeder into a rear parking lot and the loading docks facing the railway rather than 5th; kind of similar to the King & High Kroger but with Panera, Wright-Patt and the Get-Go all fronting 3rd or Edgehill.

    If it’s completely not pedestrian friendly why do I see people waiting at the bus stop across 3rd everyday? These people must be coming from somewhere?

    (and yes i know, going under the bridge is not pedestrian friendly)
