    Sorry, but it gets bitterly cold here in the winter, so that’s a very useful amenity to provide for both office and residential tenants. I’m sure folks will be more than happy to come out onto the street in the spring, summer and fall, especially at lunchtime, after work, and when there’s activity on the Commons. I work in the complex of office buildings that runs up High Street across from the Statehouse, and honestly I did not go outside during the winter because I did not have to. Now that it’s warmer, I’ve gone out for lunch 3 or 4 times in the past 2 weeks alone. That’s anecdotal, of course, but I still think the point holds: a skywalk is not going to affect street traffic except when it’s below 20 degrees outside.

    Not only that, but at that location, plenty of people will be taking public transportation, walking or biking to work and not even using the garage. I think a great question is whether they will be able to secure a CoGo station nearby.

    FYI…there is already a CoGo station right across the street between the Commons and the Parking Garage.

    Hilarious that the skywalk returns After being demolished. But will that garage have any space left after all those buildings go up at high and rich?

    It’s a wonder the Northern states were ever colonized at all given the present-day belief that going outside in winter for more than a few minutes is considered to be a traumatizing ordeal.

    I love that Ohio has cold winters and hot summers. I don’t think I’d want to live in a place that was missing one or the other.

    Bundle up, wear an extra layer, and the winters here are fine.

    Yep, I love being outside and walking around in the winter, especially when it was snowing. Those were the best Gallery Hops, imo.

    Is nice to be out when the weather is crap. Everyone else stays home. Fewer lines, smaller crowds, less hassle.

    Any news on this? Was the proposal ever accepted? If so, is there a timeline?

    From the original announcement in March – “Construction could begin as early as late this year, with completion expected sometime in either 2017 or 2018.”

    I believe the first pass at the Downtown Commission was just for conceptual review. I don’t think it’s been back for approval yet.

    It hasn’t hit the dtown commission yet from what I can remember reading… My guess is the that the announcement was made to see what sort of additional interest there might be before submitting anything for conceptual approval, hopefully to add a few more stories :)

    I remember from one of Walker’s interviews that they wouldn’t be doing anything until they wrapped things up on High Street.

    I guess it’s still a bit too early to get excited about it then, haha.
