    from the article:

    The city’s Downtown Commission will allow two linked buildings with a combined 76,000 square feet at 109 N. Front St. to be demolished this year. The Department of Finance and Management will review design proposals from nine architectural firms for a project expected to cost $40 million to $60 million.

    David Bush, the city’s assistant finance and management director, said the development could offer up to 100,000 square feet of office space and begin to fulfill a decades-old plan to consolidate the city’s downtown offices within the two-block stretch along Front Street.

    The current building is 4 stories, so I’d think this would put it in the range of 5-6 for the new building.

    The west end of Gay Street is looking all streetscaped and nice. Open to pedestrian and bike traffic, but pylons are keeping auto traffic from driving all the way through:

    (Lu Ann Stoia/Kate Liebers)

    This winter has not been good for the Columbus Police Headquarters, apparently exacerbating the mayor’s frustrations surrounding it. “The CPD building is the worst building ever built in the city of Columbus,” Mayor Michael Coleman told ABC 6/FOX 28.

    Strong words for a city that built the Dioxin Production Facility (aka the trash burning power plant) and the original Maloney health center on Parsons (the one where they forgot to seal the roof).

    It sure is a dog of a building. Seems like they are slightly hinting they would like to demo the building and put something in its place…

    maybe they could build a soccer stadium or an arena after they demo the building.

    I remember seeing the water rushing down the front steps of the building on TV when I was a kid.

    Could this be the new design for the City Service Building going in at Front & Long? Where are the windows facing Front??

    I believe DesignGroup won the contract. I don’t know if they’re teaming with the architects listed in that video.

    Man, I hope not. We have enough blank facades already that need eliminated.

    That’s pretty hideous. The 1960s are calling.
