Right now, downtown Columbus is Construction Crane Central.
These two cranes are on two adjoining blocks of High Street on the south side of downtown. There’s another crane to the south and west, and construction projects also are in progress at the corner of Third and Rich, at the intersection of Gay and High, and in other parts of the core downtown area.
By this time next year, downtown Columbus is going to look a lot different. And, equally important, we’ll see a happy decline in the number of those ugly surface lots. (As an example of the invisible hand at work, incidentally, monthly parking rates in the downtown area are going up, up, up almost as fast as the new buildings.)
It’s an exciting time to be in Columbus.
