City Campus - Renovation of Downtown City Offices

I recall reading that the city bought the parking garage across the street so they would no longer need that surface lot.
Good to hear. They may likely be using that parking lot as a transition and lay-down space for the construction. I think the park will add nice relief from all the asphalt and blank parking garages on Front Street.April 29, 2012 8:22 pm at 8:22 pm #451617
The glass is filling in and looking nice… from here: https://www.columbusunderground.com/construction-roundup-april-2012April 30, 2012 2:12 pm at 2:12 pm #451618
First time I saw this coming down Gay St. it brought this to mind.

Wow! I worked outside of there for a month straight back in August-September, and I can’t even recognize that it’s the same building.April 30, 2012 8:14 pm at 8:14 pm #451620
I’m glad that they’re getting a new building. The old one looked very “80’s”. Hopefully this one will have a more timeless look. Speaking of the old building – my dad had an office there right after it first was built and said the first good hard rain they had after they opened it – the whole place leaked like a sieve. He said there were buckets everywhere and just puddles on the floor. The wet suspended ceiling tiles were turning to mush and just falling. He said at one point it was so bad there was a stream running down the steps. Hopefully the new place will be better sealed.April 30, 2012 9:17 pm at 9:17 pm #451621
This is a renovated building, not a new one.
But yeah, hopefully it’s properly sealed up. ;)August 20, 2012 7:10 pm at 7:10 pm #451622August 20, 2012 8:56 pm at 8:56 pm #451623

Very cool looking building!! I believe there was talk before of combining the renovation of the Police building and the building that sits next door to (not sure of what the name is) into a complex removing the parking lots and closing off the section of the street that is in between them and adding a large green space there. Is this still happening? Or I a mistaken?August 20, 2012 9:33 pm at 9:33 pm #451624
The green space is still happening and the buildings will be conncected, I believe, by a tunnel.August 21, 2012 2:18 am at 2:18 am #451625

Does anyone know if any renderings of the new city building have been put out?April 28, 2013 8:54 pm at 8:54 pm #451627
Very pretty new building. I like it a lot mixed in with the older buildings around it. Took some photos last weekend.May 3, 2013 3:28 pm at 3:28 pm #451628
I don’t know if this should be split off from this since it is technically a separate project, but I keep reading about the building at 109 N. Front being torn down to be replaced with a new office building. It will cost up to $60 million and be 100,000 square feet or so. No height has been given that I’ve seen, but how tall would a 100K sf building potentially be? I remember seeing something similar for the space at Columbus Commons and people talking about that being 20 stories minimum. Anyone have more details on this?May 3, 2013 4:03 pm at 4:03 pm #451629
100,000 isn’t all that big. To give you an idea, the office building at Grandview Yard is 96,000sf. I do think the site a bit bigger, so 100k at to be demolished city building could be 4 or 5 stories (maybe?).May 3, 2013 5:55 pm at 5:55 pm #451630

The last thing I wanted to see is another 5-story building Downtown, but you’re probably right.
