    Not at all. I said as long as codes are not violated. To my knowledge there aren’t any restrictions on having “too much parking”– as it doesn’t impact you or anyone else whatsoever. On the other hand, not having enough parking can impact the quality of life for neighbors– which is why there are minimums (and a reasonable process for seeking exceptions to those minimums, for situations where the developer recognizes the market doesn’t require as much parking as the code does).

    All this is really showing is the rampant car-first culture in Columbus, and frankly, a fairly significant misunderstanding of how urban neighborhoods should function. So many pay lip service to “walkability”, but then defend mass quantities of parking. If there is ever to be serious transit in Columbus, this is pretty much the absolute worst way to get it. Granted, this particular project is hardly the worst offender, but from my pov, having a consistent position on creating a true urban environment is really important. I will never be a “better luck next time” kind of guy.

    Awww. It’s cute that Shako didn’t realize he was posting in the Sims Super-User forum :)

    They’ve recently changed the name of their Facebook page to “The Deco”, and have uploaded a new rendering with matching signage that looks pretty great.

    It appears this project is no longer called ‘The Olympic

    If you don’t like the sound of chickens, then maybe you should move to the country!

    I hope this place goes away soon.

    Me too, but I worry that would just push the problem a block further to the Long and 20th carryout which already has it’s own share of issues.

    Not so much a class, but it’s unique and real relaxing.

    I think general citizens of Columbus should get primary consideration for matters like this – not people who choose to live close to a public park and patrons of a restaurant that the city owns and leases to an operator.

    Yep

    I live on this first block of Weisheimer and am real excited to learn of this proposal. I think it would be a good fit for the neighborhood.

    The Library on North Campus has Strike Master, Foosball, and pinball.

    El Dorados in the Graceland area also has ping-pong.

    I wonder how deep the menu will be.

    I hear there will be a Pesto based ball on the menu. They will call them “Pestes”
