There would be a lot more action there on nights when nothing is going in Nationwide.
No, there would be a lot more parked cars and a lot more people inside one massive building. Those people would not be going to the nearby bars and restaurants, would not be adding to street vibrancy in any way, and they would not be spending money outside of the casino itself.
If you don’t believe that, talk to people on the West side.May 21, 2016 1:59 pm at 1:59 pm in reply to: Idea: Relocating Crew Stadium to the Arena District #1127668
I would much rather have the mixed use development that will be happening at Pen West than a Casino there.
Columbus is an overwhelmingly positive city. But we’re too often satisfied with little or nothing. Sometimes,that can be a mistake.
Have you read the comments on CU’s Facebook posts? ;)
That’s a very diplomatic way to say “yea, it’s dead”
I think what Walker is saying is that it was never really ‘alive’.
Yeah, I’d like to hear more about green tech in this proposal in general. Lots of talk about how hi-tech it’s going to be, but no talk about LEED certification, green roofs, rain gardens, or anything of that nature. Makes them feel a little out of touch with the times.
Looks like the name is temporary, from Business First:
Q: There was some confusion about the name Millennial, is that about the generation?
A: It’s about the generation. Ultimately we’ll hopefully have an anchor tenant that’s going to want the naming rights to the building. We would hope it would be (in place before the building opens).
The problem with green walls in Central Ohio is that very few things that could be incorporated into a green wall stay green for more than 6-7 months of the year. The other months you have a brown dead looking wall. Even a mass of the hardiest English Ivy would brown out/windburn in an exposed location on a building.
Good point. I already have some visual ideas for those screens. Would love to see something like this:
I feel like a green wall would work better than those video screens on the exterior. Those will be heavily dependent on the programming. If they’re abstract like in the renderings they could work, but they better commission some really solid video/design work for them in that case.
Hell, Spacejunk would be a great fit for that! ;)May 2, 2016 2:29 pm at 2:29 pm in reply to: 6 Story building proposed to replace Rebecca Ibel building in Short North #1125180
Work has definitely begun. There’s a drill rig on site, rebar cages are being delivered, etc.
Without the VVC/IVC, the Short North would have been demo’ed long ago for cheap, generic shit like what Edwards is doing now up by campus.
Yes the process is more involved, complex, and takes more time, but often projects ultimately emerge on the other side much improved from the initial proposal.
To the people who want a car alternative:
Stop posting about it on online forums. Go to council meetings, go to COTA meetings, do activism to make it happen. Wishing we had a train doesn’t do anything to accomplish it. You need to actually do something about it.
And plenty of people are. A lot of the people that post on here are very involved in trying to make it happen. One can post in online message boards and be civically engaged at the same time.
Yep, there are tons of ubers in the city at all hours. You won’t have a problem.April 20, 2016 10:32 am at 10:32 am in reply to: 995 North Fourth Street Retail/Restaurant Renovation #1123192
I suppose it’s worth posting this here too, for those who missed it:April 20, 2016 10:30 am at 10:30 am in reply to: 995 North Fourth Street Retail/Restaurant Renovation #1123190
They’ve added a Port-A-John to the site too, which makes me think there’s probably significant internal demo taking place now. They’ve spent the last couple weeks emptying the place out. This site is directly in front of my house, so I’ll try and keep everyone updated on progress!
COSI has been in talks with the American Museum of Natural History, the New York-based museum portrayed in the 2006 movie “Night at the Museum.”
Is that description really necessary? :(
