Nationwide Realty Investors’ breaks ground on Nationwide Campus.
In Grandview Heights, located just outside of Downtown Columbus, Ohio, Nationwide Realty Investors’ Grandview Yard development is well on its way to realizing the vision set forth by its developer when it broke ground on the $650 million project back in early 2009.
Recent openings at Grandview Yard include a 92,000-square-foot Giant Eagle Market District, an 18,000-square-foot Hofbrauhaus restaurant and German bier hall, a 10,000-square-foot medical retail building anchored by Ohio Urgent Health Care, a Panera Bread, a GetGo Gas Station and Wright Patterson Credit Union.
But perhaps the most exciting Grand-view Yard news was announced in late 2014: a 500,000-square-foot Nationwide corporate campus that will support more than 3,000 Nationwide associates. The new Nationwide campus will include three, four-story interconnected office buildings with adjacent parking structures. The first 320,000 square foot building is currently under construction and will open in 2016. A 160,000-square-foot second building will follow in 2017, and the third building will open in 2019.
“The new campus is reflective of Nationwide’s ongoing commitment to, and investment in, the heart of Central Ohio,” said Brian J. Ellis, president of Nation-wide Realty Investors. “This is a great community, and this project represents a tremendous opportunity for Nationwide and its associates, Grandview Heights and Grandview Yard.”
