921 is separate from the rest of the strip center though, no?November 3, 2013 1:59 am at 1:59 am #261598
921 is separate from the rest of the strip center though, no?
There are two buildings, but the lot is one parcel with one owner according to the auditor’s site.
Now, if he could only get the Brotherhood of Electrical Workers to sell their lots behind the center along Price. ;)November 3, 2013 3:13 am at 3:13 am #261599
Would make sense that Wood Co will duplicate the development they just finished on the High/Price side. They left a blank wall on the end of the building, which confirms as much.November 3, 2013 3:26 pm at 3:26 pm #261600
^ It’s my understanding that the Brotherhood will be relocating. I’m definitely sad to see them go. On the bright side however, they do have a large parcel of underutilized land behind their buildings.November 13, 2013 2:20 am at 2:20 am #261601
I noticed tonight that equipment was nearly set up inside the Snap Fitness and work was well under way on the Paper Daisy Flower Boutique too:November 13, 2013 2:13 pm at 2:13 pm #261602
Melt Bar & Grilled Opens Friday in the Short North

Who doesn’t love cheese? Affection for this treat runs deep, especially in Central Ohio, where our love for the dairy staple has caused us to integrate it into just about anything we can. It’s the hidden treat in the middle of a burger, the secret ingredient for awesome cookies, and it even makes ice-cream better.
But the most popular incarnation of cheese is still the grilled sandwich. Of all the purveyors of the decadent dish, Melt Bar & Grilled (which hails from Cleveland) stands out among the rest. Melt is the brainchild of Matt Fish, a chef for 18 years, who came up with the idea to expand on his love of grilled cheese sandwiches after culinary school as he toured the country (he’s also a musician).

Does the crane show up at all coming from Hilliard, or Gahanna. Or is it to small?November 22, 2013 3:43 pm at 3:43 pm #261604
Just want to give a shot out to the Hub garage for being awesome. I forgot my hat at melt and had to drive back to pick it up. Well the garage doesn’t charge anything if you’re in and out in 15 minutes, which is great. Bonus feature, this is the first parking structure I’ve seen with motion sensing lighting to save energy. Great job design/build people.November 26, 2013 3:56 am at 3:56 am #261605
While most of the attention lately has been at the front of the building with Melt, the back end of the building has been progressing a lot with work on the townhomes…December 23, 2013 3:52 pm at 3:52 pm #261606
Best Urban Development of 2013: The Hub
Published on December 23, 2013 8:00 am
When we asked our readers to select the best urban development project of the year, they picked out one highly visible and nearly completed project that represents mixed-use through a combination of apartments, street level retail and a much anticipated Short North parking garage. That project would be The Hub, the long awaited replacement to the failed Ibiza project that never managed to break ground on this prominent corner in the heart of the neighborhood.

I thought I’d put this in here since the Hub inspired it. This would be a very similar project located in Westerville at the northern end of their uptown. It is currently a parking lot for the church across State St. and used for the farmer’s market.
The uptown plan Westerville came up with showed infill here and it got me thinking. Here’s the lot (the building in the upper right is no longer there):
Its location relative to uptown:
My plan calls for a 40′ building (that’s Westerville’s limit) fronting State and Home streets. There would be a first floor grocer the size of Trader Joe’s. 2 floors of apartments would top that with 12 units. There would be a rooftop patio with a garden or pool.
Attached would be a 4 level garage with approximately 150-200 spaces. 2 townhomes would front the garage along Home ala the Hub’s townhomes along Hubbard. Across the alley would be a new single-family home with garage facing the rear alley.
A hand drawing:
The church owns these lots and has limited parking behind their building, making the garage a necessity. If any developer out there wants to hop right on this, go right ahead! ;-)February 25, 2014 2:33 pm at 2:33 pm #261608
Looks like the townhome units next to the garage are just about done.December 10, 2014 1:28 pm at 1:28 pm #1054170
Does anyone know why The Hub did not do any street scape along High street. There isn’t one street tree along the entire lenght of High St. it’s realloy a sea of concrete. I think street trees play an important part of the entire street scape as well as the pedestrian experience.December 10, 2014 2:18 pm at 2:18 pm #1054202
My understanding is the City has a High St. streetscape project coming soon. The Fireproof and Pizzuti projects are equally bland. My guess is the City told the developers not to do anything more than relatively cheap concrete sidewalks in the meantime.December 10, 2014 2:43 pm at 2:43 pm #1054205
