    Construction workers on site today working as they have for the past few months.

    At this rate they might be finished by 2010 lol.

    Time traveling construction site? I’d be fine driving past tomorrow to find out the building was finished 6 years ago.

    Oops! lol I wish it was finished in 2010. I meant 2020, when everything proposed so far for Riversouth would be done. As long as it is progressing I am fine with it- it will get there eventually and they will be a nice addition to downtown.

    They seem to be working in fits and starts. They come build a story or two, then disappear for 6 months – rinse, repeat.

    So, we get on jbcmh sometimes for being passionate about height, but I am suddenly feeling that passionate about this concept of ‘as long as it gets done, what does it matter how long it takes’ concept. If indeed, the rumors are true and we’re talking about a fall start, that means it will be almost 3 years to go vertical from the time of demolition. Pushing 4 years without proper sidewalks at a prominent intersection downtown. The idea that it may be because it’s urban vs suburban also seems absurd. Again, the plans are completed, the permits and variances obtained. There is not much more than to just build it. I may be wrong, but I just don’t see any additional hurdles simply because it’s an urban project. Each month this gets pushed back, that likely pushes back the other plans LC has for River South pushing back the vibrancy of the district by potentially years at this pace. Columbus needs this River South push for infill to move much more quickly so developers can begin to focus on other areas of downtown. They tend to focus on clusters from my observation and once this cluster is done, we can see another cluster develop.

    If the river project had barely even started when is was supposed to have been completed, would we be as complacent about the fact that it will eventually be a good thing?

    Absurd is the perfect way to describe the pace of this build.

    Maybe one day our childrens children will see this structure completed…

    Ironically, I didn’t really have anything bad to say about this project when it was proposed. While I would’ve liked to have seen even taller projects here, they are at least much closer to matching the High Street standards than other stuff getting built/proposed recently. I also liked the proposed design, which compared to HighPoint, looked like an architectural masterpiece. Figures that there would be issues with getting the damn thing built.

    Did you hear the joke about the new LC RiverSouth building?

    Have they made any progress or is it still 3 stories of concrete?

    They started to build the elevator shaft so I guess that’s progress?

    Interestingly, they’ve bulldozed the buildings and are ripping up the parking lot where the 3rd LC building is supposed to go. I have also seen a few more construction workers on building one, though there is still no steel going up. Absolutely nothing is happening at the building two site.

    I mean, they were using it as a staging area for the cinder blocks for the elevator (or stairwell). That counts as something, right? Aha! Maybe that’s the hold up. They were waiting on the cinder blocks to build a stairwell so they can get to the upper levels to start building taller!

    Maybe they’re realizing they know how to build that scale of building… Though I’m suprrised they would both site prep this far ahead of schedule, especially since that parking could continue to be making money up until they’re actually really ready for demo… Interesting to see what happens next
