    When you bought your house you should have had a survey included in the title work. The survey should tell you what you need to know.

    I had heard that the deal is off for now. The developer could not come to final terms with the land seller. It could come back around again but for now its dead.

    From reading letters sent to UA City Council by nearby residents, the “traffic” concern is more about the number of accidents that already occur in this stretch of Riverside drive due to people turning in and out of the existing condo projects. I think a reduced speed to 35 mph (currently 45mph) in the stretch between Fishinger and Lane Avenue makes some sense.

    I think its important to note that LC is doing something that has never been done in downtown Columbus. The size, quality and cost of these projects are taking urban Columbus living to another level and are on par with the type of development you would see in a Nashville. If it takes a little longer to get it right is fine by me.

    May have been discussed previously but has anyone noticed the “We Want our Sidewalk” yard signs that have been placed along 3rd Ave near the Giant Eagle? Didn’t have time to snap a photo when I drove past last week.

    In late 2014 ownership was transferred to a group of investors which includes Continental RE and Echo (the RE arm of Giant Eagle) so sadly, it is unlikely that another grocer like Trader Joes would come into this space.

    I had the patty melt at DK Diner in Grandview Heights last week. I don’t eat them very often but it was solid.

    The catalyst for this to get going is finding an anchor tenant or two for the office portion. Once they have some tenants committed I would expect things to get started.

    As it relates to the Biz First article, anyone notice that Evan Weese is now reporting on commercial real estate and not Brian Ball?

    The ownership shown on Franklin County Auditor is a bit confusing but if you notice there was a transfer in December 2014 which adds the name Echo to one of the entities that is the telling name. Echo is the real estate arm of GE. And they did the sale via an entity transfer as opposed to an outright sale (which is a common tactic to hide the true sale price and thus attempts to keep the RE taxes at the old sale price).

    Unfortunately, the real estate arm of Giant Eagle now owns the building. I think it would be unlikely for them to lease the space to another grocery store chain.

    This is a desperate attempt by a few residents that don’t want to see their country club-style tennis courts relocated in the Northam Park master plan.

    I walked past this today and it looks like it is already closed?

    vestanpance, what section of NW Blvd?? I drove it last night on my way home from work but didn’t see any chairs but I turned off at Lane Ave. Must have been the section North of Lane. And yes, UA people be crazy for their 4th of July.

    As another frame of reference, UA’s 4th of July “Party In the Park” as we call it is open to everyone. There is a large section that is fenced off close to the performing stage where people can purchase tables that seat 10 people. The cost of the table is lower for members of the UA civic association but “non-members” can still purchase a table. This year we had someone as far away as Hudson, OH purchase a table. However the rest of the park is free and open to anyone. We don’t get nearly the caliber of music act as Dublin does but then again, the City of UA does not pay for the 4th of July. Its completely funded by the UA Civic Association which gets its money from donations from the community.

    Interesting…after doing some digging in the public records I found out the owners. Also saw that they took out a $12.2MM construction loan so this will be a fairly decent-sized project.
