    i don’t buy it! evidence?

    I have no reason to lie about this and unfortunately I cannot post a pdf of the actually foreclosure document. However, the proof is in the pudding. So I guess you all will have to wait for nothing…to be built that is.

    P.S. Why do you think the building next door is for sale ($1.9MM). That is an ARMS property that they are trying to sell to raise capital and stop the foreclosure. The only problem, the building is not worth $1.9MM!!

    The Ibiza lot is in the process of foreclosure with the bank.

    Based on your previous posts, I’m going to go with …. you’re so full of it.

    Funny, because based on my “previous posts” this is exactly what I predicted. As for a source, how about the investor/lender for a start. That is my source.

    Well, if the conversation is steering towards stealing business ideas, then maybe we should bring up the fact that RGB’s flagship Union/Union Cafe concept was taken from a gay bar in Chicago known as Side Track. Just sayin’!

    Yes, they were clearly stealing business from Side Track. Sheesh.
    Virtually all restaurant/bar concepts are derivative. Get over it already.
    A.

    I was referring to the Katzingers/Zingerman analogy posted earlier when I mentioned Side Track and Union. And as the volume of business may not be the same between Side Track and Union, the point still stands that Union stole a concept. I really don’t care. They only reason for posting this was to identify that Level, if they are “copying” a concept, they are doing so from a hypocrite.

    Look, if they actually used company letterhead to write a letter to the bank, I am sure they did not identify themselves as owners of RGB, or sign RGB officer names on the letter to qualify for their financing. Let’s be realistic now. If this were the case, wouldn’t the bank be giving the loan to Raj and not Brent? Or is Brent also dressing in Raj making up parading himself through downtown getting financed with different lenders. Ridiculous!! Everyone calm down and let’s enjoy the beautiful and newest establishment to hit the Short North!! I cannot wait. Good luck guys!!

    in reply to: How much do you pay for your gym membership? #275400

    Arena District Athletic Club. I have been a member here for 3 years and still absolutely love it! It is on the higher priced side at $68/month, but you cannot beat the convenience, cleanliness, and staff anywhere else. The price does include parking at an attached parking garage, towel service, a self service valet station in the restroom for toiletries, all classes are included, and a super friendly staff. The staff will all know you by name by your first few visits, plus they send out motivational e-mails personalized to you atleast once per month. This gym is not your typical mega-gym (if you will), but rather small and personal, yet enough space (10,000 sqft) to give you the room you need. The staff comes around every hour and cleans/sanitizes all of the equipment, and it is not super cruisy at all!! I cannot say enough good things about this place. Sorry about the run-ons, but it truly is a great place to workout !

    Ibiza, what’s that? Just kidding!!!

    in reply to: Inexpensive date options in Columbus? #263405

    Not sure if this has been metioned, but Shakespeare in the Park is right around the corner! Ofcourse, I think grabbing a coffee and walking through GV on a sunny afternoon is always a great time.

    1) There is a rumor that the roof top swimming pool has been removed from the building plans. Is this true?

    2) There have been people who have invested money as a down payment and later asked for it back, but were told they did not have it to give back. What’s going on with these refund requests?

    3) Who do they have their financing through?

    We’ve been there twice now and absolutely love it! This is one of the best things to happen in the village in a long time. Great work!

    Good News! I hear WalGreens purchased half of the Ibiza lot!!

    Surber, I am not sure where you are getting your facts from, other than possibly the Ibiza website which is completely misleading and biase in favor of marketing the building to potential buyers. As for the tenants (not tennents) who have “already secured a mortgage”, this is false. I am a seasoned veteran in the mortgage industry and rest assured these folks do not have a mortgage. Banks do not lend to individual buyers based on something that is not standing and has not received its C.O. (Certificate of Occupancy).
    Regarding the “economic climate” of the Short North. These studies were done at a time when the economic indicators nationwide were strong, except for a few select cities. If the growth of the Short North was as strong as your “facts” claim, then why has there been a number of stores losing business and closing their doors? Maybe you should know your community better than you seem to.
    Next, “why are rental units bad?”. Well, while rental units might “pay the bills”, the building developer has not accomplished its intended purpose as an income generating property through the sale of condos that were built for the purpose of selling, and sold to investors and banks for this purpose. The idea of building any development is to build quick, sell quick, and make a marginal profit, not become an apartment complex. Also, converting these condos into rental properties will depreciate the value of the properties, affecting homeowners who have purchased units in the building, as well as surrounding condo projects in the area.

    It’s bias or biased (not biase) and it would be proper to use quickly (not quick) when talking about the idea of building a development. Sorry, had to do that.

    Your corrections are noted and appreciated. I apologize, I should not be talking on the phone while typing such Pulitzer Prize winning material!

    199 S.5th is all rental units, I have a co-worker renting there now, and City View is not the Sixty Spring apartments, these are two different projects. As for the LeVeque Tower, there are two units that are being leased out by the developer. Why?, because they CANNOT SELL THEM!!
