    This is incredibly exciting. 25 stories is nothing to sneeze at.

    Now let’s just work on that name…

    yeah… that name…. I’ll support the name if there is a GenX tower and Baby Boomer tower… otherwise, a petition for a name change sounds good.

    Isn’t Arshot the same developer that’s in charge of Cooper Stadium?

    They can name it the spoiledrichtrustfundsh*t tower and I would not care as long as it gets built. Names can change.

    Yes. They are also responsible for many strong builds downtown.

    I’ll reiterate what I said in the article

    As for the other projects, I had not realized Arshot was behind those. My Bad. Regardless, it is not unreasonable to be cautiously optimistic when one of their largest projects is years upon years delayed with a promise that something is coming. When they throw out another ambitious project with an equally ambitious deadline for completion, one can be understandably skeptical.

    Just like the projects across from Highpoint, you can have a large portfolio of successes, but you mess up a large, visible, well praised project and your reputation, understandably so, is going to take a hit.

    I feel like a green wall would work better than those video screens on the exterior. Those will be heavily dependent on the programming. If they’re abstract like in the renderings they could work, but they better commission some really solid video/design work for them in that case.

    Hell, Spacejunk would be a great fit for that! ;)

    Won’t argue with that!

    They would. They do great work. :)

    The problem with green walls in Central Ohio is that very few things that could be incorporated into a green wall stay green for more than 6-7 months of the year. The other months you have a brown dead looking wall. Even a mass of the hardiest English Ivy would brown out/windburn in an exposed location on a building.

    These kind of developments are exactly what downtown is starving for.
    I couldn’t be more excited about it.

    Hopefully this is just the beginning of more of a aggressive type of architecture for downtown.

    I just hope it doesn’t get shortened. I like it just the way it is (unless they want to go taller).

    Good point. I already have some visual ideas for those screens. Would love to see something like this:

    I won’t either as I’ve been one of the few to give LC the benefit of the doubt.
