Columbus Corner

Earlier this summer, plans for Columbus Corner, a mid sized project on Christopher Columbus drive were announced. Located just one block from the Grove Street Path entrance as well as the Grove Pointe tower still under construction, the empty lots and dilapidated buildings along Columbus Drive have been in need of an overhaul for quite a while.

JCVibe has a few pictures of what the propsal has called for. The key feature is the rahabilitation of two existing structures as well as the construction on the parking lots and vacant land along Barrow Street and Columbus Drive.

Below, the parking lot is to the left of the goldenrod brick tower that would be incorporated into the final complex.

On the corner of Barrow and Wayne Streets, the southern corner of the project is to incorporate the victorian error home within the project. The historical house though has clearly been buried beneath years of mismanaged additions.

Why has this project been abandoned? This is a key location along Columbus. Regardless, that grey house need to be cleared out!!!!
