    The VVC has held the neighborhood (and indirectly downtown) back time and again, which is quite tragic really, since this is one of our most vibrant areas.

    Or the VVC has responded to the charge for which it was founded and guided development of the neighborhood balancing the concerns of the neighbors and the integrity of the area’s character.

    You whole post negates itself. The neighborhood has become the city’s most vibrant neighborhood while the whole time being under the purview of the commission. If the VVC has held it back, how has it reached such a peak of vibrancy?

    By this you mean the VVC prevented developers from doing whatever they wanted and in many cases knocked down the height of a building by a couple stories, but still Maintained storefronts, restaurants, and lots of residential and now office space. Sure, there could have been a few more residents if all those projects hadn’t been reduced, but do you really think the loss of maybe a couple hundred residents has truly affected the vibrancy? Let alone affected the development of downtown in any way? That second one is really a stretch.

    Without the VVC/IVC, the Short North would have been demo’ed long ago for cheap, generic shit like what Edwards is doing now up by campus.

    Yes the process is more involved, complex, and takes more time, but often projects ultimately emerge on the other side much improved from the initial proposal.

    How small minded and peevish can we be? What about the wonderful Pay Days Loans building and the Family Dollar and the UDF? Wish the Short North were Buckhead in Atlanta. But then, Atlanta is Atlanta, and Columbus is, well.. enough said.

    Not that I disagree entirely, but the VVC has a reputation the IVC does not…

    Do you honestly think there’s going to be any issues with those buildings?
