    Eight Central Ohio artists commissioned to create work for a major installation in the Goodale Street Garage.
    http://www.shortnorth.com/Cooke.html

    “Reese Brothers Productions, a pair of consultants who assisted the county with the Hilton’s collection, are now assisting with the art curation for the Greater Columbus Convention Center. The scope of the project includes the eight original works being created for the Goodale garage, the Hyatt’s garage, and installations in the Vine Street garage that are facilitated by local arts organizations that engage the creative contributions of children and young adults. Several other pieces will live in the exterior and interior of the convention center, totaling over 100 works by as many artists.”

    I remember the old Short North Donatos

    Cheers to that! With Yousef’s eventual gin bar down the way, Oak Street is really becoming the walkable corridor of OTE!.

    So about that. It’s not happening. Since planning that he has moved away.

    it’s actually going in next to the new location of the old Short North Coffee House. It’s in the former Blazer’s Pub, next door to the Royal Factory clothing store.

    A couple of weeks ago they actually had the door open and it looked like the interior rehab was pretty far along.

    ^I believe that used to be a book store in the 90s – An Open Book.

    It was an Open Book in mid-2000s. I do believe it was their last location after a few moves.

    I think it’s being used for plasma storage. I’m pretty sure the plasma place is paying rent on it. Not saying this isn’t equally depressing.

    The blood/plasma place is no longer there. It moved up north of King Ave.
    Also if Corso owns these properties, then it is not the same landlord that jilted Little Brothers and was reportedly using it for plasma.

    ?

    In the second rendering, much of the current terminal, which they are spending $80-million to renovate, no longer exists? The parking structure and the main concourse are there, but terminals A,B & C are gone. The renovation was touted to “Ensure the functional lifespan of the Port Columbus terminal for at least another 20 years.”

    I get it is conceptual, but really, the want to raze most of what they’re spending 80-million on in 15-years?

    Also, it does not look like much net gain in gates.

    Anyone know what is going on at Fred Beekman park? Particularly, that large grassy area on the west side of Kenny Road, between Carmack and Lane? There is fencing around it and it is all dug up.

    perhaps this?

    I saw signage that implies Canes is moving into the former potbelly space. Any confirmation on that?

    that is also true

    there is a sign up on the space in between Game Stop and Five Guys announcing it as the first OH location of Pizza Rev
    http://pizzarev.com/locations/pizzarev-columbus/

    the most significant thing is that this particular space is one that I do believe has never been occupied since construction.

    Couple of photo updates from around the neighborhood this weekend on some of the infill projects…

    Walker, what intersection is the first photo at?

    East Third Avenue and N 6th Street
    The three are facing south on Third to the east of 6th.
    The two furthest east are custom design/builds.
    The first one is a Joe Armeni home that is reportedly already under contract.

    The lot is fenced off and it looks like they are removing parts of the old building in prep for demolition.

    Timken lot is almost entirely spoken for by the Rogue project (unless I missed something about that falling through).

    That’s……actually…….kind of ugly.

    Maybe it is attractive, as in “this is an attractive institutional medical facility where I go to get my prostrate checked.”

    Let’s hope it looks better off paper.
