    I believe they are just adding surface parking lots. I recall reading about it in the tri-village news.

    I hope to god there isn’t plans for a Best Buy. Last thing that area needs is another asphalt graveyard, big box store.

    Ummmm, so where do you actually get to look at electronics/appliances in the central city area? I really think something like this is sorely needed. I always feel like a schmuck wasting gas to drive out to best buy. Personally, I would like it to be a Microcenter but Best Buy has more variety. There are a lot of consumers in this area (5XNW, Campus, Harrison West, Arena District, Grandview, Franklinton, Victorian Village). Target just doesn’t cut it.

    What I would like in a big box store is hardware, such as Lowes or home depot. I hate having to drive to the North Side or Grove City just to go to a hardware store bigger than Ace or Zettler’s.

    That area (Grandview Yard) is home to zero big box stores as of right now.

    Even the area around it has very little of that. Unless you’re talking about the Lennox Town Center?

    I think you are forgetting that BestBuy is Amazon’s showroom….;)

    I meant area in general, but yes, was also referring to the Target at Lennox. I was just stating that I personally don’t want to see Grandview Yard turn into a huge asphalt park.

    From Grandview Yard, there is a Lowe’s, MicroCenter, Best Buy, Target, and Wal-Mart less than 10 miles away.

    I almost always hear ‘Mini-Easton’ when people refer to the Grandview Yard. I really don’t think that would be a bad thing for the area. There is not a tremendous amount of space. I think that the stage one, 2 story garage shows that they are being smart regarding the parking situation. They also intend to jam apartments into there.

    I don’t believe that’s the plan, though I imagine some typical big-box retail names (along the lines of Best Buy) will be a part of the project when all is said and done.

    Though I would think that if Phase 1 of GY is any indication, they’re going to be very smart and very urban with accommodations for parking in a very non-suburban manner. Phase 1 has only one parking deck that is shared between the hotel, offices, two restaurants and gym. A similar parking deck for a Best Buy would likely be shared with other tenants as well.

    Try the one in Hilliard. Not too far from Grandview.

    Get most of my gear at Goodale Pro, though.

    It would be nice to have an electronic store like Best Buy closer to central city. Imagine all the OSU students and all the residents who live within 5 miles that would use it.. Im sure Best Buy could come up with a more urban footprint for the store.

    My computer as been on the fritz lately and I needed to take it in to GeekSquad. The trip took 2 hours to and back. I would appreciate a location closer to campus…
