Front & Beck in the Brewery District appears to be up and running!
@Stephen43215 – Yep, the Downtown Commission meeting agenda had this in it “Certificate of Appropriateness for new construction of 13 townhouses, 12 garden units and 1 bridge unit. The project’s exterior will be identical to Bishop’s Walk Phase I, just to the west of this site.”April 22, 2013 4:07 pm at 4:07 pm in reply to: Nunnally v.

Oh boy, I might have guessed correctly… Nunnally pulled a Roker and had a tummy tuck, at least he looks quite a bit skinnier, even Monica Day commented on how he needs to buy new suits because he’s shed the pounds while on leave!March 26, 2013 3:13 am at 3:13 am in reply to: Nunnally v.

Could he be following in the decade old footsteps of the great Mr Roker and sneaking off to get a tummy tuck? I can’t help tying weight to the whole legal issue because that was just around the time that Jym Ganahl was starting his “I’m going to fit in my old army uniform for Veteran’s Day” weight-loss challenge.
Signs of the museum moving ahead with the next phase of expansion… welcome news but am really curious to see the designs!
From the January 22nd Downtown Commission agenda:
IV. Conceptual Review
Case #1 635-13
Address: 480 East Broad Street
Applicant: Michael Bongiorno
Property Owner: Columbus Museum of Art
Design Professional: Design Group Michael Bongiorno
Zoning: DD (core sub district)
Conceptual review for two story addition on the eastern side of the Columbus Museum of Art. Also:
- [*]Movement of the sculpture garden to accommodate the addition. The garden will be moved to the north side of the museum (currently parking).[/*]
[*]Significant alteration of the 1974 addition (northern wing and primary entrance), opening to the new sculpture garden.[/*]
Two informational meetings were conducted with Downtown Commissioners early last year. Other recent museum property cases reviewed by the Downtown Commission have been the new west entrance and garden (2011) and renovation of Beaton Hall, the administration facility (2009).
+1 BrianW! Every time I visit 39 there is either another Gay St. shop owner in there talking about collaboration or the more obvious signs, such as “Now serving Brioso Coffee” that I noticed yesterday – the whole street seems like a team the way they work together.
Taking a decent sized vacant lot downtown or in Franklinton and packing it full of architecturally unique “Tiny Houses” has been on the top of my “if I had the money to do it” list…

Quick turnover but hopefully the latest endeavor in that space will be successful…April 11, 2012 1:10 am at 1:10 am in reply to: The Julian – Residential Development in Casto Building at Main & Front #491876
