    The indoor soccer facility that was the former indoor tennis facility located on the Northwest corner of the development is in the process of torn down. Demolition started on Monday.

    It will take longer than 3 months to build a Costco. Even with a fairly aggressive schedule, a 6 to 9 month construction timeframe is probably what it is going to take to build a building that is going to be in the 150,000 to 200,000 square feet in size.

    I’m thinking that the construction is going to start of the site infastructure soon. Currently, there is no water, sewer or electric on the site. In addition to the infastructure that needed to be constructed on the site, the site has a huge pile of dirt that has been stockpiled on the site for the last few years.

    Of course, the other phenomena was this former Fotomat located in Great Southern Shopping Center at S High St and I 270; somebody had the brilliant idea to repurpose the structure into an Italian/Chinese drive-thru, and while I really can’t recall the name (I think it was called Presutti & Chin), the food left a more lasting impression; horrible! Did they have any other locations in CMH?

    There was a Presutti and Chins in a outbuilding at Karl Plaza at Karl Road and 161. The outbuilding is still in use as a Subway.

    As you mentioned, the food was terrible.

    Topping out is set for October 1 at 10AM.

    The crane will be there until just after the first of the year to install the precast panels.

    This is one of the projects I’m currently working on as a subcontractor.

    The crane that is on site now will be the only crane used for the job and it will be here until January.

    Cranes must be hard to find as this one had to be trucked up here from South Carolina.

    I was there for lunch last week and according to my server, the lot has to be paved in order to be used as a parking lot. Currently, the lot is just dirt and the city requires it to be paved.

    Too bad as parking can be somewhat of a problem in the evening.

    My server told me that Dirty Frank’s was working on a solution to the parking.

    That Kmart is a large, old and outdated building. I remember it used to include a car service center. I am thinking they will probably tear it down as it is too large for a wig shop and too valuable of a location for an indoor flea market.

    Giant Hookah Bar?

    For what it’s worth, this Taco Bell was originally built as a Zantigo and was converted to a Taco Bell in 1986 or 1987 when the Zantigo chain was bought by PepsiCo from RJR/Nabisco.

    I ate a lot of Zantigo lunches when I worked in the Grandview area. While Taco Bell is pretty much a late night drunken indulgence, Zantigo was a solid choice for a decent fast food meal.

    I spent a lot of time at “The Pine” over the years. While it needed to be remodeled, I think the owners over improved it and it lost some of the “hole in the wall-neighborhood bar” feel that the old place had.

    Hopefully, new management can get it turned around.

    For the last 5 or 6 years, wife and I have been regulars at The Ravari Room which is the bar attached to Hound Dog’s Pizza. We have never had any of the issues mentioned by others in this thread.

    You can get the Hound Dog’s menu at the Ravari Room until 10PM. We have always had good food and drinks and great service. The Ravari Room offerds a good happy hour with a good selection of beers. They also have a trivia contest on Thursday starting at 8PM.

    Then again, we aren’t eating there at 4AM after the staff has delt with a horde of drunken, belligerent idiots for the last few hours.

    The industrial park area where the Target distribution center is located also also has a large FedEx facility and distribution centers for Iams pet food and Restoration Hardware.

    Wow, it looks like a Super 8 Motel.

    While I’m not a big fan of the building, I’m happy to see that it’s going to be something other than a run down abandoned building.

    I did see that the small park at Arcadia and High had been fenced in with construction fencing. Hopefully, this will be something other than a gathering spot for vagrants.

    I looked at a tankless unit for my house 4 or 5 years ago and the venting issue made it too expensive to install in my home.

    Basically, the vent material needs to be stainless (Cat III vent material) because of the moisture that forms in the vent stack. There are also limits to how long the vent can be and the tankless vent can not shared with another vented appliance, like your furnace.

    We live in a Dutch Colonial Revival in Glen Echo Park. Built in 1920, it a solid house. I hope to live in this house for the rest of my life. WE really enjoy the house, our neighbors and the neighborhood.

    Great news! Can’t wait to finally get Yuengling here in Columbus.

    Anyone know who’s dristributing Yuengling in the Columbus market?
