The Scioto Peninsula is about to embark on it’s most exciting phase yet.
It feels like just yesterday we were all wondering how this massive development would begin taking shape. Well, buckle up because Phase II is ready to sweep you off your feet and redefine the skyline.
The city of Columbus, alongside the Columbus Downtown Development Corporation (CDDC), is teaming up with the visionary minds behind Phase I – The Daimler Group, Flaherty & Collins, and Rockbridge – to bring you The Peninsula Phase II. And trust us, it’s going to be something special.
After the smashing success of Phase I, which gave us 330 swanky residential units, 230,000 square feet of Class A office space, and a boutique hotel that made us feel like royalty, it’s time to dive into the next chapter. Brace yourselves for this second phase that promises to be even bigger and better.
Let’s talk about what’s coming our way:
1. Class A Office Space: With 150,000 square feet of top-notch office space, Columbus is getting ready to welcome businesses into a hub of innovation and growth. Balconies, common areas, and sprawling floors – everything you’d expect from The Daimler Group’s commitment to excellence.
2. Residential Bliss: Picture this – a 20-story tower gracing the city’s skyline, offering a minimum of 300 modern residential units. Think luxurious finishes, breathtaking views, and a lifestyle that’s second to none.
3. A Slice of Comfort: There’s a 120-key hotel in the mix, designed to cater to all your comfort needs. Whether you’re a local looking for a staycation or a visitor exploring the city, this is going to be your oasis.
4. Playtime at Pins Mechanical Co.: Get ready for some serious fun! A 40,000 square foot Pins Mechanical Co. is going to be the ultimate playground. Bowling, arcade games, and surprises around every corner – it’s a recipe for endless entertainment.
5. Convenient Grocery Shopping: Say hello to your new best friend – a signature grocery store that’s going to be a very welcomed addition to an area that is severely lacking grocery options. Although the grocery partner hasn’t been announced yet, I can’t be the only one hoping for a Trader Joe’s.
6. Parking Perfection: With a City-owned parking garage that can accommodate 400 vehicles, parking problems will be less of an issue for both residents and visitors.
Mayor Andrew J. Ginther knows what’s up. He’s calling Phase II a transformational journey that’s going to make Downtown Columbus an economic powerhouse. More jobs, more residents, more opportunities – it’s a win-win for everyone.
“Phase II of The Peninsula will be transformational in the continued development of this new urban district, furthering Downtown as an economic anchor for the city,” said Mayor Ginther. “In addition to the growth in jobs, residents and hotel rooms, The Peninsula will continue to flourish as a highly sought-after destination for visitors, residents and employers.”
Construction is slated to kick off in late 2024, and by 2027, we’re going to witness the magic unfold. If you’d like to see it all for yourself, you can head down to the Scioto Peninsula on September 14 for the Grand Opening Celebration of Phase I.
