Also, Wendy's didn't want to feel left out. They developed this student yuppie box at Ohio State:

Taco Bell doesn't want to be left out so they are doing a yuppie box too! Yes! Columbus, where fast food places ALSO build urban apartment blocks!

And pretty much ALL the suburbs (even Whitehall!) are getting endless yuppie boxes to fill in Metro Columbus' population boom.

I'm not even going to mention all the billions of dollars Ohio State is building. Meh, that's enough. You get the point.

dc_denizen May 29, 2016 6:59 PM

some awesome projects going on the Columbus. cool! btw does Westerville have any infill?

ColDayMan May 31, 2016 9:25 PM

Yes, but probably the most boring of all the suburbs. Think faux-Colonial stuff.

Was not aware Columbus had so much going on. Looks great! Some very cutting edge looking designs in there.

SonoftheRustBelt Jun 1, 2016 3:55 AM

Wow, CBus is killing it! Especially love the new urban development in Dublin and other suburbs-glad to see that they're making a real effort to become destinations and commercial centers of their own right, as well as take steps towards becoming more centralized and less car-dependent.

toddguy Jun 4, 2016 6:08 PM

Hmmm. I did not see the nine story red yuppie box planned for downtown where the lab building was...also not seeing the six or so story building downtown planned for I think Fifth and Town(just requiring some 60's lowrise junk to be demo'd).

LOL at 'yuppie boxes' We can't help it that we were 1/2 the urban area pop. as Cincy in 1950, or 1/3 that of Cleveland at the same time. We don't have many significant buildings(left) to redo.

How about those buildings on Broad by the horror that is our tallest building(named appropriately after one of our nastiest ugliest governors)that are being turned into a boutique hotel?

Also a new 12 story yuppie box just announced for 1st and High in the Short North-has the Short North facebook brigade all up in arms.

ColDayMan Jun 7, 2016 9:31 PM

^Yeah, I'm not going to post every yuppie box going up in the area as that would take months.

Meanwhile, another box is going up in the Short North:

atlantaguy Jun 8, 2016 5:45 AM

Thanks for the great update, ColDayMan! I'm hardly surprised things are booming like this.

As a native Cuyahoga/Summit Buckeye, I've always loved Columbus.

I'm also a Nationwide brat. I think it's required. ;)

Kaufman Announces Five-Story Apartment Development in Franklinton

Franklinton has been a hotspot for development announcements over the past several years, and that trend continues today, with new plans proposing a five-story mixed-use apartment building on Broad Street in the heart of the neighborhood. The project will be the first in Franklinton from Kaufman Development, which has primarily focused their urban development efforts more centrally Downtown.

“We’ve been following the neighborhood for many years now and getting involved in what’s happening there through the Franklinton Development Association, Independents’ Day and through a variety of our other friends that are active in the community,” explained Kaufman Development founder Brett Kaufman. “We really relate to the neighborhood and feel like we can do something really unique and special there — different from any other part of the city.”

Franklinton Mixed-Use Development Proposal Receives Updates

http://www.columbusunderground.com/w...90&w=650&zc=1&

Changes have been been made to the large mixed-use development planned for the former Riverside-Bradley public housing site in East Franklinton. The first phase of the project will now include 230 apartments, over 36,000 square feet of office and retail space, and a 290-space parking garage.

The layout of the development has also been altered, apparently in response to concerns expressed by the East Franklinton Review Board when the project was reviewed conceptually in May of last year. Board members at that time thought more emphasis should be given to the river side of the project.

Although the development still features two five-story buildings fronting Rich Street, two rows of three-story townhomes have been added that will look out onto the Scioto River.

Damn, Columbus is going crazy. I'm surprised the city doesn't get more attention.

Columbus likes flying under the radar just fine. Except when it comes to OSU football.

As LAsam stated, Columbus actually likes being low-key. Sure, it could get all Portland/Austin/Nashville in the PR departments but it generally does its thing and gets people like you surprised by what's happening.

Kaufman Development Announces 10-Story Mixed-Use Project in Short North

Earlier this year, Kaufman Development purchased the International Brotherhood of Electrical Workers building located on Second Avenue, just off High Street in Victorian Village. Today, we’re getting a first look at what they plan to do with both the building and its large parking lot that faces Price Avenue.

A development proposal unveiled this morning shows a plan that calls for the construction of a 10-story mixed-use property that would also preserve a portion of the existing two-story building located on the 1.5 acre site.

I like this building but the quality of the rendering itself is impressive. So realistic.
