Yeah, it’s going to be pretty bad. This is major project and I think it would take a long time. It’s very much needed and look forward to it being completed. The last time 3rd ave closed it caused a lot of backups on 5th Ave and King … and that was before Giant Eagle opened.
At least the Northwest Blvd rebuild/reconfigure project should be wrapping up in August from everything I’ve heard. Right now it’s in pretty rough shape.
I would assume the widening would be starting as well. There is no room for a sidewalk and a shared use path under the existing bridge.
Looks like something is going to be finally built at the site. No mention of how many stories or renderings.

Proposal: To construct a mixed use building with restaurant, retail and residential components
I’m surprised nothing has happened yet, given the huge boom in apartment complexes going up around town. It’s a large site and a great location. Hopefully if the site is redeveloped a portion of it will be public parking, kind of like The Hubbard in the Short North.
Semi-related, I saw a that a 5 story mixed-use commercial building is being proposed for 1123 Goodale Blvd – http://www.grandviewheights.org/ArchiveCenter/ViewFile/Item/1556April 26, 2016 8:40 pm at 8:40 pm in reply to: Press Grill Concept Going into Former Grandview Graffiti Burger #1124439
Rumor on the Grandview facebook group is a soft opening within a week.
Isn’t the PNC bank around the corner designated public parking after 5pm? I think they have around 25 spots and didn’t the Grandview Cafe use to have a half dozen or so spots in Panzera’s parking lot?February 26, 2016 11:01 pm at 11:01 pm in reply to: SN's Bollinger Tower being bought, possibly converted to hotel #1116020
To be fair, the article does say that the sale of the building will allow for 300 units to be built. The Bollinger tower has 100 single occupant units.
Honestly, sounds like the price was right for CMHA. If they sell the building they could offer 3x the units at a different location.
I don’t think the garage being proposed is to directly aid development, but more about creating a permanent greenspace (or Park) that would make the neighboring land more appealing for developers. 620 parking spots isn’t that many – I would think that’s as many as COSI might need for itself. For perspective, the Columbus Commons has ~4,500 spaces between the underground and above ground garages.
I really wish this wasn’t behind a paywall …
620-slot underground parking garage, green space planned for Scioto Peninsula
Columbus Business First
A sprawling surface parking lot at the Center of Science and Industry is being targeted for a 620-slot underground parking garage beneath public green space.February 1, 2016 9:33 am at 9:33 am in reply to: Two25 17 Story High Rise Proposed for SE Columbus Commons #1112931
I agree, the fact they can’t go taller than 12 stories despite already having an existing 4,000+ space parking garage is concerning. If Columbus can’t build tall here, I don’t know where else the economics could work.
It looks like six story buildings will be the norm unless the building is subsidized by the city or we get proper mass transit system.
A big take away from the article above is a possible phase 2 of the Atlas. 80-90 units, ground floor retail along high street and a parking garage behind. The renovated Atlas has 98 units.
The current rumor is that it’s back on track.
“In addition to the four buildings, the parking garage at 52 E. Long St. will be completely rehabilitated, including glass-curtain walls that will enclose the upper garage floors.”
Yes, the south side of the road will have a shared use path and the north side will have a normal sidewalk.
This is what is being proposed:
