    It really looks great and also does a lot for improving the urban ‘feel’ through that part of the SN. Excellent addition to the neighborhood!

    Great developement; it even cleverly carries the theme of the buildings across High Street. One concern: parking. Recognizing there’s some spaces within and beside the building, I assume that can’t be enough.

    Isn’t SNBA working on an initative to cobble together enough parcels to build a garage? That can’t happen soon enough.

    There’s two garages in development, one at The Joseph and one at the Hubbard, each with some private and some public parking.

    Columbus is getting to the point where better public transportation could lead to more development without a 1-1 ratio (or sometimes 2-1) of parking to units.

    Rode by here the other day, man do I love the look of the building. Really fits in with the neighborhood and enhances the urban feel.

    Something needs to happen with the massive White Castle parking lot next door. Happy to have them in the neighborhood, but what a terrible site plan for that prime lot.

    I’m surprised White Castle hasn’t tried a more “urban” restaurant concept here. Sell the lot to a developer and put in a storefront White Castle. Might be too classy for them….

    I’m aware of these additions but wonder if that’s enough. Also, timing is important. I assume the Wood’s building will soon be ready to lease. That’s going to bring, what perhaps 60 more cars into that area of High Street every night? With Northstar and all the other existing activity, where will those cars go? The Joseph and Hubbard garages are years away opening.

    But where will those old guys park their van and hang out?

    Actually, I believe they both open next year.

    Given that WC’s HQ is only blocks away, they must be well aware of the potential of that site. Similar to Fireproof, it’s probably only a matter of time before they redevelop it (again). Perhaps they lack experience creating a more urban development so there a lag in the conversion. It is curious how that WC, despite now being in an much for affluent market, hasn’t changed its customer base.

    BTW, the Fireproof development seems behind schedule. Once that gets underway, that parking also disappears. That’s will bring another 15 or so cars per night on to the streets.

    I hope you’re right. I haven’t timed most of these developments, but they seem to take longer than a year.

    Where are you getting the number 60? The retail is already there, and the build out includes 24 new apartment units and 24 new parking spots:

    Columbus needs more parking challenges if we ever want to see a real need for building out better transit systems. It’s hard to justify if there’s wide roads and ample parking everywhere.
