    If so, they misplaced the dot. The dot is on the east side of the tracks north of Rich, whereas the project linked to is on the west side of the tracks and south of Rich.

    We need to step up our game. What we’re doing just isn’t enough, and we lag seriously behind our peer cities.

    We are growing at a conservative, steady pace; more isn’t always better. Yes, there have been several “ooh & ahh” proposals in cities like Nashville, Cleveland, etc. But they are exactly that, proposals, we’re extremely lucky in that what gets proposed in our city gets built.

    We have come a long way and have a long way to go.

    We have to keep growing smartly, and avoid the problems that come with growth that outpaces thoughtful planning.

    I think there’s still a lot of room for growth along 4th, along Main, and I assure you, pressure will keep building for the Greyhound station to either rebuild or relocate.

    Having spent time in places with these ooh and ahhhhh factors, I can still say that the best neighborhoods in these cities are the ones growing like Italian village, short north, soon to be river south. Oohs and ahhs create great skylines but the restaurants and shops and bars you like to go to regularly aren’t going to always be found among the 40 story buildings. IMHO.

    Columbus is an overwhelmingly positive city. But we’re too often satisfied with little or nothing. Sometimes,that can be a mistake.

    I hope this is the case. Isn’t this the one where the city actually requested more height because of the possible views?

    I do not recall them pushing for height, but I do recall them expressing dismay over the lack of any orientation towards the river other than parking lots. I could not have agreed more with their dismay.
