Picture of the Week | Downtown Columbus Skyline

Each week, it seems a new article comes out from a national media outlet touting Columbus as one of the best places to live, work and play.

We couldn’t agree more.

During our last weekly meeting, team members at our agency brainstormed on how we can do our part to better show off this great city. Since we already often meet with clients to take pictures for marketing campaigns throughout the 270-Loop, we decided to start showing off some of the pictures we take around the city.

Every week, each member of our team will compete to take the best photo around Columbus. We will show off the picture right here, on our blog while also writing about what the picture means to us.

Downtown Skyline Picture

The picture we took this week of the Columbus skyline shows off the growth of our city. You can see a billboard promoting Lake Erie, the Columbus Dispatch sign in the background along with the insignia of major hotel chains and businesses.

As the sun set on a spring Sunday evening, 3rd Street, one of the busier roads in downtown Columbus, hardly had any traffic.

If you live in Columbus, you can probably already sense the growth of our city over the past five years. When you drive through downtown or past Italian Village, the new apartments and restaurants being constructed each day reflect the growing demand to live in the capital city of the buckeye state.

Just like the empty street in the picture, we still feel like Columbus is the best kept secret in the Midwest. The word is getting out rather quickly though.

This picture was taken on the top of a parking structure on Chestnut Street.

Columbus Picking Up Steam

  • The Columbus Dispatch recently reported that the number of people who call the Columbus metro area home grew to more than 2 million in 2015.
  • The Wall Street Journal mentioned Columbus as one of the next places you should eat in America.
  • Forbes named Columbus as one of the best cities for millennials.
  • Money Magazine named Columbus as one of the best places to live in the country

Bumper to Bumper

While nobody likes bumper-to-bumper traffic, we believe if we were to take this same exact picture five years down the road, there would be a lot more cars and pedestrians on 3rd Street.

As the word continues to spread about Columbus, people will start to flock to this great city.

Our agency is fortunate to be a part of the growth and call Columbus our home.
