    I concur with GCrites80s and A161830, trophy shop is busier than ever. You can tell by the piles of boxes full of participation trophies in the windows.

    Its a great day in the neighborhood! It also looked like the trophy shop and whatever else is in the plaza next door might be closing up shop.<br>
    I’m shocked there haven’t been any 5XNW/ Grandview/ Columbus comments on this thread… but not sad to not to see them :)

    I was thinking the same thing but didn’t pay attention to the trophy shop while I was there. That corner is much more suitable for development with the addition of that parcel. If that’s the case we’ll probably wind up with The Metropolitan II.

    I imagine StateofDevotion across the street, lawn chair unfolded, cracking open a tall boy, and savoring every moment of that buildings destruction lol

    Hah, that’s not far from the truth! I’ve passed that place several times a day for the better part of a decade watching it get worse and worse. Eventually you start to give up hope.

    I’d be fine even if it’s just a parking lot for Byrne’s and Woodlands, they need it. Anything is better than the shit show that was there until this morning.

    Ding dong the witch is dead! I gotta say, +1 to all the responses which further brightened my day.

    Who knows, maybe we’re being duped and the city acquired it for a giant roundabout or a COTA bus turnaround. LOL

    It’s a great day in the 5XNW, Wheels Motor Sales is coming down! Anybody know what the plans are for this corner?

    Visual updates like this and the urban development year in review are blowing my mind. It’s exciting to see the gaps closing on both sides of High Street from downtown to north of campus. We returned to Ohio from Chicago in 2002 and the changes in Columbus since then are nothing short of incredible. I’m an optimist but if you told me most of the ideas proposed on this very messageboard would come true within a decade I would laugh. Now if we could just get a street car on High Street we could have our own Magnificent Mile…

    Pretty cool drone video of various Wagenbrenner projects including the one at Grandview/Dublin Rd:

    They cut down all of the trees from the corner of Dublin Rd to the Franklin County Engineer building. It gives the viewer a great shot of Downtown and how large the tract is. You can see Mt. Grand View off in the distance. LOL

    Does anyone have an address for the site?

    1249 W 3rd Ave<br>
    Columbus, OH

    Walked by yesterday and they’re still operational but there is a sign out front advertising the size of the space.

    Oops, it helps to read the last post on the subject. Just realized OneBagTravel already mentioned the development sign.

    I noticed a for sale/development opportunity sign on the car repair shop’s corner lot. That was a couple weeks ago so I’m not sure how long it’s been there. The lot hasn’t changed hands in 15 years, maybe we’ll finally see some movement on that location?

    I’m not a die-hard preservationist but I really admired this building when we lived in Clintonville and am very sad to see it on the chopping block. I don’t know the back story on why it needs to go and what will replace it but I understand the reality. Nowhere to move it, nobody can or would want to afford to renovate it and for what purpose? It’s sort of in the wrong place at the wrong time. From an architectural and to some degree historic standpoint it’s a loss for the city. I can only hope that its replacement benefits the kids and the neighborhood.

    I built a 32×22 garage with second floor walk-up in Grandview 3 years ago for $28K. I used American Heritage Homes. My neighbor down the street just did a 2-story garage using Pomante Contractors and he had only good things to say about them.

    I was hoping car repair would not continue after clean-up was complete. Let’s hope it’s temporary. Word on the barbershop is it has something to do with growlers.

    I heard over the weekend that now the gas tanks are gone Wheels is being torn down to make way for a bar. Anyone have any info on that? During the same conversation there was talk that the former barbershop/used car lot on the other corner has been leased out.

    If you can find a distressed property with existing structure and/or utilities you will save a lot. I did that and it was literally a matter of shutting off the water, gas, electric and capping the sewer during recycling and construction. Afterwards the plumber and electrician reconnected them and I started service up again. I would think there are a lot of opportunities in FTON for that.
