The New Renderings Of ParkWalk, An Elevated Park Slated For Downtown, Are Absolutely Stunning

One of my favorite things about New York City is their High Line park.

If you’re unfamiliar, it’s an incredible park built on a historic, elevated rail line. High Line has gardens, art, performances, and even food carts. Plus it gives a unique perspective of the city. Now, The Edwards Companies is considering a similar transformation here in Columbus.

An elevated walkway above E Capital Street in downtown Columbus is long due for an update. Currently a skybridge, the plan would have the roof and walls removed to create the elevated park. The project would connect two other Edwards Companies builds, the PNC Building and a new proposal on the Corner of Broad and Young.

The project is being called ParkWalk and was first proposed at a Downtown Commission meeting back in December. While not on the same scale as New York High Line, the park is still a fantastic use of space in the downtown area.

In the latest renderings, it’s easy to see how this park will quickly become a Columbus favorite. I can see the elaborate proposals, wedding photos, and Instagrammable moments already, folks. To take a closer look at ParkWalk, just keep scrolling.
