I heard some talk about this a few months ago. The fact that it’s public now could mean that they’re funded.
Anyway, it sounds cool.January 14, 2010 7:12 pm at 7:12 pm #334763
Is this the new Junctionview space?January 14, 2010 7:19 pm at 7:19 pm #334764
Adam Brouillette will be involved, and there will be artist studios.January 14, 2010 8:07 pm at 8:07 pm #334765
Sounds like a lot of potential to be a very cool spot. How’s parking over there?January 14, 2010 8:09 pm at 8:09 pm #334766January 14, 2010 8:10 pm at 8:10 pm #334767
@MikeReed, Not sure of the exact number of spaces that will be offered but there is a lot on the property. There is also hope that the city will convert 4th St. in proximity to the building to metered parking.January 14, 2010 8:47 pm at 8:47 pm #334768
A 2-way conversion would ultimately help in that, though I don’t know where that issue stands currently for 4th and Summit. Projects like this surely can help make the case for that continued effort- being 2 way and speed controlled, with the addition of meters, would make the area more walkable and livable in general.
I wondered because at a really huge event like Agora the whole neighborhood over in Grandview would get parked up to the hilt. It is amazing how many cars 2000 people bring with them. Wonder how that will go.
A very exciting prospect from the Arts & related commerce. Looks like a mountain of work, for sure, but fun work to be doing with the right team and a reasonable plan. Good luck.January 14, 2010 9:09 pm at 9:09 pm #334769
Oh, that is really near my home and I would love something like Junctionview over there! Please, please oh pretty please don’t turn that building into boring condos. Count me in.January 14, 2010 9:48 pm at 9:48 pm #334770January 14, 2010 10:04 pm at 10:04 pm #334771
Jeffrey Place “development” = more parking than an event could ever useJanuary 15, 2010 12:11 am at 12:11 am #334772
This sounds mindblowingly exciting right now.
I “wonder” if they will keep the neon sign, make it say Wonder City, or maybe even rearrange the current letters into an amusing anagram??
Here’s some fun ones…

+1 those new streets provided an abundance of free parking at the Italian Festival.
Wonderland is the name of a neighborhood just NE of Port Columbus wedged between the Jack Nicholas Freeway and Hamilton Rd.
