    I was thinking the same thing. The only time people even go down that street, is to attend a Clippers game. I could easily see maybe more apartments, and food options down there.

    NRI does have plans for more residential units down that way…

    Even then, I don’t think I’d consider it a more important Gateway than say… Nationwide Blvd & Front Street.

    From the original Business First article:

    The FBI will occupy 44,926 square feet in the planned 51,300-square-foot building as it consolidates its regional operations. Its commitment will leave 6,300 square feet for retail or office tenants on the ground floor.

    Maybe as more office and residential development occurs in the area the ground floor retail will fill in…

    6,000 sf sounds about the size of two coffee shops. That would be great to have a little retail down by the baseball stadium. Maybe a good place for a Clippers themed bar. I just can’t see the foot traffic, until, as you mentioned, the area gets a little more developed.

    While most of the negativity about the new FBI building has been directed at it’s lack of retail and setback from Nationwide Boulevard, has anyone seen the back side of it? This is a view of the south side of the building from Spring Street:

    Was this picture taken in Downtown Columbus, or in Polaris?

    What an awful misuse of prime land.

    its really not as bad as that looks …. the building is on the street and for now it has a back parking lot but i could see that going away once more development happens

    What really matters is ‘street presence’, that back lot could easily turn into anything. That is why projects like that piece of crap Edward’s Tribeca really hurt Columbus. It really isn’t that hard to grasp though some developers aren’t getting it or don’t care.

    To their credit, parking lots in the Arena Distirct aren’t built to last forever. Most all of them have been filled in, or have plans to be filled in soon.

    City to Partner With Three Developers for Office and Residential Projects on West Nationwide Blvd
    December 5, 2014 3:24 pm – Brent Warren

    The City of Columbus announced today a plan to add retail, multi-family housing, and significant office space to the far western end of Nationwide Boulevard. What started last spring as a call-for-proposals from the city to redevelop the historic Columbus Municipal Light Plant building at 555 West Nationwide Boulevard has expanded into a multi-faceted plan with the potential to transform what is now an out-of-the-way pocket of downtown into a full-fledged extension of the Arena District.
