    Well, if you were carrying a gun… they probably had a good reason. ;)

    Only applicable if they would have seen it. Figure it’s more my sunny disposition ;)

    Not like this is a high traffic message board anymore. Figure Walker is just glad people post at all.

    A lot of the every day chit-chat and rampant complaining has naturally shifted to Facebook and Twitter. Which is fine with me, as I’ve always preferred quality over quantity. That’s also why we pivoted years ago to primarily become a news outlet. Our website traffic has continued to grow year-over-year… it’s just that the messageboard has become secondary.

    Sure; figure with that a little off topic here and there is fine.

    Which is good. Since we’re talking about message board traffic that’s the third ( at least? ) topic for this thread.

    Ahem. Sorry. ;)

    To bring it back around… Jeff Baur told me that they’d send us renderings and site plans as soon as they had something to show. No timeline, but I’m interested to see what they come up with for the site.

    I’m still a big fan of Mike Beaumont’s Columbuslandia video last year…. ;)

    Great design… I like the 4 story tower paying homage to the White Castle, just hope they put some giant blue pennants on the top too!

    Wow! I really think they need more than just white though to break up such a large building.

    I never expected 11-stories though! I wonder how that will go over at the neighborhood commission?

    On a somewhat related topic, I’ve been wanting to tailgate at a Crew or OSU game with a Crave Crate for some time and this year will be the year dammit!

    It works for 600 Goodale.

    Really a drive through in the parking garage we take one step forward and two steps back I wonder how many parking spaces it is displacing

    I’m not sure that including a drive thru taking away a handful of spaces in a 266 parking space deck with 140 apartments, office space and retail nearly qualifies as two steps back. From what I’ve seen, this White Castle still relies heavily on drive through traffic and I bet the numbers support that if they are keeping a drive through. If they had the foot traffic like campus, I’m sure they would have been ok with getting rid of the drive thru like Wendy’s.
