The design and density looks great, and this will be a great infill project for Parsons.
That being said, it would make a lot of sense to build ground-floor retail for this placement. OTE is largely a residential neighborhood, so it wouldn’t make sense on a lot of streets, but Parsons is already a pretty major commercial strip for the neighborhood. If you’re going to do ground-floor retail/office, this is a prime spot for it.
This seemed to be the sentiment of many of those who came out to the site on Saturday morning.January 30, 2014 12:35 pm at 12:35 pm in reply to: 122 Olde Towne – New Apartment Development Proposed on Parsons Avenue #558165
I’m speculating that this might be the future website for the project:

Has anyone tried the system (besides Walker)?
Yes, I’ve used it twice already. The turning radius and fun of parallel parking that car is reason enough to try it. The website automatically updated my trip info on my account.
There was one thing about the car sharing system though that I hadn’t thought of before today’s frost. In the cold mornings when you need to warm up the car and clean off the snow/ice, are you being charged for those minutes? I saw that the website categorizes your minutes as either “driving” or “parking”. Also, I didn’t check if the car had its own ice scraper, but I’m guessing the company thought of this.
At the risk of creating the ultimate CU firestorm, it occurs to me this might be an ideal site for Wonderland, assuming they really are going to move forward.
Thanks for the link Walker. Chris, awesome, I didn’t even think about that possibility.January 25, 2013 3:32 am at 3:32 am in reply to: Columbus named one of top "intelligent" communities in…the…world. #531422
Excellent news! mrpoppinzs: Thanks for the study, I’m sending this on to my Mountain View friends.
I’d like to see a quality deli on High St between 1st and the CAP. I love Katzingers in GV. It wouldn’t even need to have as large of a selection, but let me get a bagel and coffee for under $5.December 28, 2012 4:06 pm at 4:06 pm in reply to: Average electricity bill for 2bdrm ~900 sq. ft. apartment? #528186
I’m closer to 1300 sq ft and the most I’ve seen my bill get up to is $60. However, I’ve been in a smaller space down in German Village paying around $120 regularly. Both on the same company.
I’m not seeing the map of the new street configuration… but here’s some more info on those businesses that will disappear:
Thanks for getting me started with this. I saw that OTENA was against this project, and maybe they know more from experience, but the plans (for an outsider) don’t look that bad. Although I do feel horrible for ET Paul given the history of the establishment and their customer service.
Here’s the pdf of the presentation from the January 2012 meeting.
Other documents can be found on the ODOT page as well.
Keep in mind that eventually several buildings across the street will be torn down (ET Paul, Carabar) and the street configuration is going to be changed to shift Parsons traffic over to a new highway-feeder street running west of Parsons north of Bryden/Town.
Is this what you’re referring to? I just arrived in Columbus in 2010 and missed this:
I’m more interested in the 1 acre lot on Parsons just north of Bryden.
Easy access for both the locals and those traveling on the highway, a market would be my ideal choice. I know that people would like to see a market go up in the old trolley barn, but I think that putting one here would really bring more attention to the local businesses that already exist on Parsons.
I do think that the current list price though is too high to attract an individual investor not familiar with the area.December 16, 2012 1:34 am at 1:34 am in reply to: 400 Festivus! Open Artist Studios + indoor Winter Farmer's Market. Sat 11-2 #524734
This event was amazing. I never saw so many people in here! Furthermore, they had people swinging around on the trapeze, cosi had some experiments on display, and they even had an arts and crafts corner for the kids including a ping pong table.
Best event of the year.April 27, 2012 11:36 pm at 11:36 pm in reply to: Walkscore.com Ranks COTA 24th out of 25 for Big City Transit Agencies #494276
I have a 2 mile commute to work. I’m satisfied with COTA.
