    Willis insurance brokerage heading to Grandview Yard
    Business First – by Adrian Burns
    Date: Friday, August 12, 2011, 12:17pm EDT

    Grandview Yard has scored a major office tenant in insurance brokerage Willis Group Holdings Plc.

    The British company is moving its approximately 100 area employees to Grandview Yard’s main office building at 775 Yard Street. Willis, Central Ohio’s largest insurance brokerage, has signed a 10-year lease for about 23,000 square feet, taking nearly the entire second floor of the building. It expects to move in by the end of the year.

    Review: Buckeye Hall of Fame Grill
    By: Morgan Kelley

    The Buckeye Hall of Fame Grill opened last November, and was one piece of the first phase of the much-discussed Grandview Yard development. Despite what the name might imply, the Buckeye Hall of Fame Grill has absolutely nothing to do with the Buckeye Hall of Fame Cafe which closed in 2009 and was demolished to make room for a new Springhill Suites hotel on Olentangy River Road.

    If Grandview Yard were built in the suburbs it would look less like this:

    And more like this:

    Very nice! I could see development like this in the Discovery District also!

    I was looking around the G.Y. website for the maps they used to have that showed where different parts of the development would be built. Nothing like that on the G.Y. website now. I recall something similar to Easton, with a central shopping district surrounded by offices, then housing on the outside edges. The website still says, “The master plan for Grandview Yard includes 1.5 – 2 million square feet of commercial space.”

    So these new apartments are being built in the interior area of the G.Y. space. Where is the big shopping area going to be? Right up along side the residential area? I don’t see how these apartments fit into the “master plan”.

    While that would be great, I hope rent is kept reasonable. I live just south of Discovery (E Town) and I have a feeling that in 5 years, barring a sizable income increase, I’m going to be facing a choice between keeping an apartment here and having disposable income.

    $800 for a 1BR in the Yard with parking sounds reasonable, though. Hopefully its a decent size and not an Arena-Crossing-esque “1BR”.

    I think the apartments will be nice and will rent out quickly as most of the apartments available in Grandview are pretty old with hit or miss updating. Though I believe that NRI may also be responsible for Arena-Crossing; I will hazard a guess that the 1 bedroom for $800 will be a pretty small studio apt.

    Meh. That’s about as inspiring as McDonalds. Surely they can bring in something better.

    Chik-Fil-A is delicious. We’d love to have one closer to Downtown than Stringtown Road.
