    Commission meets on the First Tuesday of each Month at Holy Trinity Lutheran Church, 2001 Northwest Boulevard, Rm. 110, Columbus, Oh, 43212 at 7:00 pm.

    Personally, I doubt anyone will be interested enough to attend.

    Sadly, you’re probably right.

    Wonder if 3rd will be open in time to close 5th for construction.

    I guess I shouldn’t be surprised to see people whining about traffic on Facebook and Twitter. It just still surprises me that people choose to live in an area like 5xNW because of great proximity to amenities, and then complain when new amenities and neighbors arrive because they prefer lower levels of car traffic and would rather this site remained an undeveloped dirt lot.

    This project did not go to the 5thXNW area commission it meet all the requirements of the urban commercial overlay along Fifth Ave. and did not have any variances. The commission approved the overlay a couple years ago to encourage this type of development.

    Also, as a note, the city of Columbus will not allow anyone on the commission that does not live work or own a business within the boundary of the 5thXNW area.

    I read, but don’t believe it, the 3rd is to reopen in late July.

    Right; I’ll believe it when I see it.

    I had seen Holly was corded off for construction months ago and had asked about it. So glad to finally find out what’s happening. How exciting, especially after the loss of Johnson’s Catering.

    So according to the dispatch article from today (http://www.dispatch.com/content/stories/business/2013/06/29/apt-address.html) more information has come out.

    *Rents will range from $850 for the lower-end, one-bedroom units up to $2,000-plus for three- or four-bedroom penthouse units.

    *The projected cost of the venture is about $42 million: about $28 million for the 5th Avenue building and about $14 million for the Holly Avenue structure

    *The plans call for 377 parking spots, “so we’ve allowed for restaurant and retail parking as well,” said Mike Balakrishnan, a principal at JSDI Celmark.

    This is interesting:

    “They’re all going to be fully furnished, which is rather unique for Columbus,” Balakrishnan said. “We’re seeing that trend in Austin, where we have a presence. Ohio State is not just local, so we’ll be marketing overseas — Hong Kong, Singapore, Europe — to the kids and their families who are looking for a better product.”

    ETA: Wow. Apparently futureman broke CU. Guess posting something about parking caused servers to assplode. ;)

    Smooth move, Ex Lax!

    I bet furnished apartments will get more popular over time. Seems like there’s a whole cohort of Millenials that don’t want to own anything except items associated with their hobbies and interests.

    I was excited when I thought this was a condominium project.

    lol…rent-a-center

    I think they are targeting a very specific student demographic and I think it will be very lucrative for them. Those aren’t the students flocking to South Campus.
