In Columbus, Ohio, Nationwide Realty Investors’ latest mixed-use development, Grandview Yard, continues to welcome new tenants and celebrate significant construction and development milestones.
Upon completion, Nationwide Realty Investors’ ambitious $650 million project, which is located just two miles west of downtown Columbus in Grandview Heights, will include more than 1.2 million square feet of office, retail, restaurant and hospitality space and up to 1,300 residential units.
Recent highlights include the announcement of eight new office tenants, including Hilliard Lyons, Unum Life Insurance
Company, and the United States Navy. These new tenants will join Ernst & Young, Northwestern Mutual, Ohio Health Urgent Care, Willis Insurance, and others in the more than 200,000 square feet of completed office space at Grandview Yard.
Nationwide Realty Investors president and COO Brian J. Ellis says, “The demand for space at Grandview Yard remains
high. As the development continues to mature, we are able to provide an even more engaging mixed-use environment for our office tenants.”
Nationwide is also joining the office mix at Grandview Yard. In 2014, the company announced that it would open a 500,000-square-foot corporate campus. The three-building complex and adjacent parking facilities will be home to more than 3,000 Nationwide associates, who will move into the first 320,000-square-foot building in May. The second building, a 160,000-square-foot structure, will be completed in 2017, and the third building is slated to open in 2019.
