This series will be a quick rundown of the past week in Columbus, so they will be posted on Sundays.
First, in terms of development, we had a few updates.
-The Market Tower project at the North Market has apparently gotten a new design.
It’s gone from this-
The new design may actually be at least 40 stories instead of the originally-proposed 35. No official announcements on the height increase have been released, but I suspect we’ll be hearing something soon on this.
-The Gravity 2.0 project in Franklinton got its initial approvals from the neighborhood development commission, including approval on the 12-story tower, which has also gotten an updated rendering, seen below.
-Nationwide Childrens Hospital made national news for its ongoing investment in the Near South Side. Read that article here: https://www.citylab.com/equity/2018/09/when-a-hospital-plays-housing-developer/569800/
Outside of that, the big news this week has been with the weather, or the near-constant appearance of incredible sunrises and sunsets over the city. The pictures have been flooding social media since the end of last week. Take a look!
