The Arena District is just fantastic. One can only imagine how much the addition of Hunnington Park will enhance the area, too.

****, when college is done and if I can find a job in Columbus, I wouldn't mind living in Arena Crossings myself.

The clippers will be playing in Huntington Park in 2009, and I will have the same seats that I have in the Coop. Woot!! First row, between home plate and the Clippers dug-out. This park is going to be beautiful.

And hopefully, we will be the AAA farm team of the Cleveland Indians!

All kinds, it's kind of like a California Pizza Kitchen if you've ever been to one of those. We ate at one 2 night in a row on our honeymoon while we were driving through Calgary. They have a lot of traditional pizzas, but then all sorts of "different" pizzas like Sezchwan Thai and Greek Pizzas, and so much more (real appetizers and deserts for instance)

The menu of "Boston Pizza", the Canadian version, is a little different than "Boston's", the US version.

Here's the link to Boston's menu:

Nationwide Real Estate just purchased the old Big Bear Warehouse facility between Goodale Ave and Third Ave. They are going to raze it and put in a combination residential/business area, so I imagine it will be high scale condos, up-scale shops & professional offices. We are very excited about it in Grandview. I think the working name is "The Gardens"

It will be kind of an extension of the Arena District.

I think it's "The Yard" actually. But yeah, this is going to be a great thing for the arena district and Grandview. If I wasn't 18 and had some money, I'd buy some property in Grandview. In 10 years when everything is running, it'll be worth a ridiculous amount.

You are correct (my memory...of all the things I've lost, I miss my mind the most.) it is the Yard.

I bought here in '88, and yes it has been (and will be) good investment.

So much development in this town. They are building so many places to live around downtown, but not really increasing the things to do in the area... so the places stand empty.

I hear different things, and correct me if i am wrong, but I hear a big complaint is that if you live downtown ( like, actual downtown, not Short North/Grandview/GV)and you want to buy a pizza or a pack of smokes, you pretty much have to drive to wherever because there is never anything open within walking distance.

As far as pizza, I gotta stand true to my roots.
If y'all havent had it yet, please try either DiCarlos or Formaggio's (used to be Steubnville Pizza Company). Both are classic Ohio Valley style pizza. By the slice or the tray, tangy sauce baked in, cheese and toppings on after the pizza leaves the oven, slight crunch to the crust..... effin love it. I've had pizza in many places and I was stoked that these places opened shop in Columbus. I make the drive to pick this stuff up for parties and whatnot. Formaggios is on 13th on campus, and Dicarlos has locations in Pickerington, Hilliard, and I think Tuttle Crossing.

I can tell you this much...

I graduated from Columbus College of Art & Design in 1996, which is downtown. The next year I tought one class a week in the evening for a little extra income. On test days, I'd be leaving the school and driving through parts of downtown around 7:30-8:00 - and it was DEAD. Nobody around, nothing going on. No life at all, and at a pretty early hour.

It's still amazing to me to see how energized the area around the Arena has become.

I was in San Antonio last summer and went to a Boston Pizza near my daughter's apartment. Good food, good atmosphere. Went back that night to the bar-it was very nice, lots of TV's. It will be a great addition to the Arena Dist.

DiCarlo's is great if you haven't tried it yet. I was raised on it.

The other thing is, the large majority of the crowds that go downtown at night are young (a ton of kids from OSU). I have no idea what the population of Edmonton is like, but having the second largest university in the country in our city certainly helps the liveliness of the Arena District.

Also, since it's right across from the actual corporate Nationwide Plaza and a few other corporations in that area, they get alot of lunch business during the week. I know Chipotle is only open for limited hours (not the same hours as most other Chipotles), to best optimize their profit and eliminate the amount of dead time when noone is walking around down there. So, I guess there are many factors to consider, but the Arena District here is booming and will continue to be, especially now that they are building the Clippers stadium.

Good luck, I hope it will happen for you all.

But would you say Nationwide Arena is solely responsible for a revitalized downtown?

I think this is what the push-poll nature of this thread is trying to prove.

Personally I think it's more complicated than that. From what I've read, a lot of private/public money was put into housing, development and pedestrianization downtown starting in the 1990s...

Columbus is often compared to Edmonton because both cities don't really have comprehensive rail/transit service.

That's not the question I posed. The question, had you bothered to read it was, "How Has Nationwide Improved Your City?"

I know I have posted earlier but after reading many posts after mine I'd like to sum it up: a renaissance.
