    Because the area under and around a railway bridge is paradise?

    Not the most exciting news, but a new 2 story 68K sf rehab hospital is being proposed. If I’m not mistaken this would be at the empty grass field next to the surface lot recently built going up to the old auto shop at goodale and NW blvd.

    Though the taxes from the 120 high paying jobs would defiantly help Grandview out.

    An Alabama-based operator of rehabilitation hospitals wants to build a 42-bed center at Grandview Yard.

    Documents filed with the city of Grandview Heights identify HealthSouth Corp. as the proposed owner of a planned two-story, 62,800-square-foot building at Northwest and Goodale boulevards. The Grandview Heights Planning Commission has scheduled a meeting Aug. 2 to consider the proposal.

    Does anyone know if the cities of Columbus and Grandview have had any discussions about alleviating traffic congestion on the major roadways through the area (Northwest Blvd., King Ave., 5th Ave., 3rd Ave., and Grandview Ave? I understand they want to redevelop old buildings and develop Grandview Yard but they haven’t even really gotten going yet and traffic is already a nightmare in the area. At 5:00 it isn’t unusual on 5th to see traffic backed from Grandview Avenue down to Olentangy. Those roads and traffic signals weren’t designed to handle the traffic and as growth continues, it will get worse.

    Probably not much. 3rd is going to reconfigured near the Giant Eagle. Frankly, I don’t think the traffic is all that bad, especially since it’s only one hour a day.

    I agree. It’s poor form to plan roadways around peak usage.

    Instead, these new developments should be planed to maximize walkability, bikability and public transit.

    Traffic isn’t bad. there may be lines but you aren’t sitting in traffic, you’re moving. It’s a lot better than the Broadway/High St. intersection, for one.

    For everyone who doesn’t have a business first subscription they added an article about the new hospital here that is outside the pay wall –

    Thanks for the article link, I was wondering when this project was gonna be made public. I’m just finishing up architectural renderings for this. Hopefully they will be released publicly after next weeks planning commission meeting, guess we’ll see.

    It isn’t that bad now, but it gets congested and it is for more than 1 hour a day. Most of weekends it is like that. Congestion will continue to get worse as more development happens and the roads aren’t designed for it. Maybe they aren’t planning to do anything, but it is poor form to assume everyone will be miserable in a car so they will switch to a bicycle.

    Are you a road contractor or something?

    Would have to disagree regarding 5th Ave traffic.

    I travel those roads everyday at morning and evening rush hours and rarely have a problem getting through. The worst I run into between the 5:00 to 5:30pm time frame is maybe waiting through a couple light cycles if I’m turning left from 5th to Grandview Ave. Our auto shop is just East of Kenny on 5th and traffic flows fine all day long. Throughout the day we have deliveries from parts suppliers coming from Grandview Ave. (NAPA), Dublin Rd. (Advance), and 5th East of High St. (Auto Zone). Their drivers almost always arrive only 10 minutes or so after we place an order, even at the end of the day. Never had one say they couldn’t get through.

    I don’t think traffic is all that bad in that area at all.

    +1, if you want to see bad traffic, try going from Worthington to Delaware on US 23 in the afternoon.
