Indianapolis Company Beats Out Local Developers For $500 Million Scioto Peninsula Project
Indianapolis based company Buckingham Cos. has been awarded a $500 million project to create a mixed-use community in Franklinton.
The project, which is being led by Columbus Downtown Development Corp and the City of Columbus, will bring 1,700 residential units, up to 800,000 square feet of office space, 150,000 square feet of retail, and 150 hotel rooms- if all goes according to plan.
“Buckingham’s experience creating vibrant new neighborhoods is a natural match for the impressive vision that Columbus has for the Scioto Peninsula,” Scott Travis, senior vice president of development for Buckingham, said in press release.
Buckingham has been responsible for big city project like this before, including Aertson Midtown in Nashville, a similar mixed-use area.
