    I think it all depends upon infrastructure changes. slow down the traffic and widen the sidewalks and I would love to live there. Arena Crossing has a train that comes by and rattles the windows and that place is 98% full all year round

    ??…..almost every development of this size proposed or under constuction are in the Short North, downtown or Grandview Yard, all of which are walkable (or currently semi-walkable for the latter) and considered neighborhoods…..or am I reading you wrong.

    My point was that A) a residential community of this scale and price range should be within walking distance of more amenities and have that ambiance that comes with being within a neighborhood and B) in my opinion as an appraiser, the highest and best use of this site would have been for an office building given the exposure to the highway and various easy access points. Plus, office workers don’t really care about that constant hum of traffic whereas someone who is paying or thinking of paying good money for an apt. here will. It just looks really out of place to me.

    The design does look great and I wish for more modern architecture in a city that severely lacks it. I hope they do well.

    I guess I was thinking of all the Edwards-like apartment developments. I think this has more of that feel rather than, say, the Abigail or Flats on Vine (however, I have gripes about that project).

    I agree with both your points, A and B. I find it an odd use of the site too. However, kudos for them developing the project, but I could see this residential project doing much better on Spring Street, near COSI, or somewhere not smothered by train tracks, busy streets, and highways.

    I’m still shocked a project like this is being built at this location.

    Are you saying you’d rather see some other use of that site (commercial? industrial?) rather than residential?

    Because otherwise if you’re just saying that you’d rather see it some other location of choice, then you’re getting into SimCity territory. ;)

    I think the trains would be more of an issue than the highways. I live about 100 yards from a very busy highway, and the constant background noise is rather soothing, and not invasive at all.

    I agree I think the biggest issue is the trains. It may not even be an issue because I am not sure how loud they are from right there. I live near West Broad and I can hear the Vallyview train loud and clear in the middle of the night which leaves me wondering how the hell the people living next to the tracks can stand it.? I know after a while some sounds just blend into the back ground but that track line is crazy loud.

    There is nothing wrong with SimCity :) and you’ve been using that line a lot latey…

    I don’t think this is anymore isolated than something like the Watermark apartments down the street. This has the advantage of probably being in the city’s eye for infrastructure improvement (biking & walking) between the new Grandview developments and the AD.

    I’m pretty sure there is a plan to connect the Olentangy bike trail to Goodale at some point. I can’t remember where I saw it though…

    Sim City is a great game. But it’s not reality.

    It’s a nice thing to say that it would be cool to see one building moved to another area, but that’s a make believe scenario and does nothing to further realistic discussion on a topic.

    Construction has begun, if you haven’t already noticed. More photos, here:

    There is a new trail by this, I can’t remember exactly what it is called but its like the “Riverside Railroad Trail” or something like that. Has anyone else seen this or know more about it?

    Not sure if it’s the same thing but In one of the earlier articles/interviews they had plans for connecting the apartments to the bike path.
