    I think you’re right…

    Maybe I should just wait until more condos are built and hope one of the lands within my current budget OR just continue to rent…

    I’m not entirely opposed to renting for a few more years. Especially with the way the real estate market is changing in Columbus right now. Maybe prices will go down?

    Yeah, who knows, it’s so volatile currently.

    Renting is becoming extremely expensive close to downtown within the past two years, but then after all these apartments are built to fill demand, will it become cheaper soon?

    Land near downtown (short north, vv, hw, grandview) is also skyrocketing in the past year, while prices elsewhere are stagnant.

    It seems it may just continue upward, but who knows?!

    Another problem near the “COMMONS AT THIRD” complex: Man Spotted Performing Sex Act Outside Grandview Heights-Area Businesses

    http://www.10tv.com/content/stories/2012/12/28/columbus-man-accused-of-exposing-himself-outside-businesses.html

    Could be the same “Underwear” guy as described above?

    Either way, disgusting, and sad this area is starting to be hit with this crap…

    The Commons on Third is run by the same organization that runs Commons at Grant and Commons at Buckingham, both Downtown. I’ve heard very few issues at those development, if any.

    I’d hesitate to jump to conclusions that the problem is directly related to that development without really knowing.

    Yeah, I agree, but I just noticed a lot more “sketchy” foot traffic along 3rd/2nd in GH. I’m not quick to do that, but then I looked up the place, and they are definitely having some issues with violence as there have been 2 assault arrests there in the past couple of months.

    ((12/4/12: RP stated a male friend of hers, XXXXXXXXX XXXXXXX struck her 8 times with a closed fist to her head and face without reason. RP stated that suspect gets that way when he is on pills. Officers advised RP to stay away from suspect and not let him in her apartment and referred her to the prosecutors office to file charges if that is what she wanted to do. RP refused medical treatment.))

    That side is mostly industrial/warehouse. If someone is walking in your yard you call the local cops whoever they are.

    Yep, I guess I will contact them about the issue. The random meet-ups of people and cars along the industrial parking lots along 3rd are also concerning, but I guess nothing you can do but watch

    Well that side of 3rd is CPD though..

    Yeah, correct, so no jurisdiction. I just have noticed a leak-over into GH proper, seeing as though it’s about 50 feet away.

    Part of the problem is the baby-boomers are the ones designing and paying for these places. I’m willing to bet the people working on this project are about 45-55 years old, and they probably think it’s a wonderful oasis from the city….almost like a gated suburban community. I’m guessing if the idea of placing the units up to the street was mentioned, they had a very odd look on their face and probably said, “Why would you do that?”.

    You’re most likely correct. I still am surprised that baby boomers would support a “Captive Bath” design. It’s awful.

    Where/when is this available? I work in the 43229 area, could be kind of cool….and sad that this is my definition of “cool”.
