Columbus Projects & Developments


Recommended Posts

There is quite a bit of land on the parcel. Any word on what else might go there?

Also, the land across the road has been cleared and has a sign up for a new retail center. Any word on when it might break ground?

Yeah, I think they're going to clear it and have it available for sale. If you'll e-mail me ([email protected]) I'll send you the site plan. No idea when they'll break ground, they just went before city council a few days ago.

Where are you talking about this new retail center?? I just drove by there yesterday, didn't see a sign.

Same could be said for any city. What would Atlanta be without the airport? Columbus has a diverse economy. Home to big companies like Aflac. TSYS, Synovus, Carmike Cinemas, large medical base, Blue C

Allen Development (think that is the name) has a sign on the piece at the corner of Veternans and Old Moon Road. He just developed that office building that sits back down the hill in the trees.

Oh yeah, I remember. I they have a history of trying to develop land and never doing it. There is some land out on Smith Rd that has a Allen Development sign up from 10 years ago. Now, they do sometimes do what they say they're going to do, so I'm not sure. Let me know if you hear anything.

Awesome news!

I talked with a friend of mine at Hathaway Development here in Atlanta. The land that Woodruff is rezoning in CPC is for an apartment complex. It will have 220 units in the first phase and 140 I believe in the 2nd phase. This will be a large apartment development. Hathaway is building it possibly.

This is where The Village at Columbus Park was going to be isn't it? Woodruff/Jordan Realty rezoned land on both sides of Kohls, a small strip on the right and the Village at Columbus Park area on the left-hand side. Any idea which of these Hathaway is talking about?

I will have to check on exactly where they plan on doing that. He didn't mention which side. I can definitely find out though from Hathaway or Ben Carter Properties.

I will probably talk with him this week. I'll see what I can get out of him. I know they are still moving forward with the project though. It will just take longer to get going because of the economy.

Per Ben Carter Properties: The Village is probably a 2010 opening

You are correct. They won't start any construction (my guess) until the end of this year if not the beginning of 2009 to time the market. More than likely sometime in 2009.

I sent you the site map for the Woodruff property, hit me back when you get a chance.

These are all needed projects. What is the 'Panhandle' road? I also wish someone could convince the powers-that-be to work on a better plan for the Library site. There could be such a better plan than the one that's being used. It will be another wasted opportunity right up there with abandoning the trolley...except worse. At least with the trail it could be converted to rail someday.

The guys at Back to the Grind Coffee, the new drive-thru coffee shop on 2nd Avenue, are looking for a couple of new locations. Any thoughts or opinions?

Phenix City is a must. The majority of workers that come into Columbus from out of town come from Russell and Lee Counties. It would be nice to have a coffee shop on the way since everywhere else has avoid PC like Starbucks, Fountain City, ect...

Also a midtown location would be good or a south Columbus location near the infantry musuem or Ft. Benning gate would be nice
