Major projects will have ‘substantial impact’ on Central Ohio in near future

A “number of big projects” including data centers, mixed-use developments and industrial parks that could have a “substantial impact” on the region are underway in Central Ohio’s suburbs, Columbus Business First reports. Both Amazon and Google have announced “large-scale investments in new data centers” recently, according to the article. Amazon Web Services plans to invest “an additional $7.8 billion to expand its Central Ohio data center footprint by the end of 2029.” Google “pledged an additional $1.7 billion to support its three data centers in New Albany, Lancaster and Columbus,” bringing its total committed investment to $3.7 billion. Microsoft purchased a nearly 184-acre site in New Albany, but “has yet to confirm specific plans.” 

Several new mixed-use developments in Central Ohio suburbs “have been announced, made progress or have started construction in recent months,” the article reports. The Johnstown Gateway Planned District’s proposed 417-acre site will feature “industrial, residential and commercial developments, along with parks and open space.” Coworking company COhatch’s $9 million to $14 million mixed-use Riverview Village in Dublin “could transform a prominent section of the city’s riverfront.” Equity recently began construction on TruePointe, “a $200 million mixed-use development that aims to be a destination location” for Hilliard, with residential, retail and office space, a hotel and parking garages. New industrial park projects include the $400 million Silicon Heartland Innovation Park in New Albany, the West70 Logistics Center in far west Columbus near Hilliard, and in Delaware, the Pittsburgh Drive Business Park and the Exxcel Project Management buildings.
