    $50 million apartment-office building planned near Columbus Commons

    By Steve Wartenberg

    The Columbus Dispatch Thursday August 8, 2013 5:19 PM

    A 12-story, $50 million office building with apartments and retail space could soon rise just south of Columbus Commons.

    Developers Daimler Group and Kaufman Development announced plans today for the building at 250 N. High, designed to feature street-level retail space, four floors of offices and 156 apartments.

    Construction could begin in late November, with a target completion date of early 2015.

    Kaufman/Daimler Propose New 12-Story Mixed Use Building Downtown

    When the Columbus Commons greenspace was first announced, it was touted as a new Downtown amenity that would spur additional private development. Since the park’s completion, there have already been two major development commitments in the form of Highpoint at Columbus Commons and a Lifestyle Communities building. And as of today, a third mixed-use project has joined them as neighbors.

    And here’s the before, before photo. I would rather move forward architecturally than try and reproduce the past. If the old stuff was still there, like Gay St., then sure, try to reuse the building. But this slate has been wiped clean a long time ago.

    I wonder if this new building will be visible from I-70 East when you are coming into Downtown?

    The new-ish 7-story Franklin County Courthouse is visible from I-70 East, so I imagine a 12-story building next to it would also be visible.

    Good point. Some an actual addition to the skyline. Finally. :D

    EDIT: I believe this building would qualify as a skyscraper.

    I could be wrong but I believe this is what was planned for that lot originally.

    Sounds like they are a little bit late :D I honestly do like the design though.
