Gowdy Field Redevelopment Project

1015 Olentangy River Road, Columbus, Ohio

Please provide a brief overview of the project.

Columbus Urban Growth Corporation was established by the City of Columbus, Ohio to identify sites in the central city that may have issues and attempt to recycle them back into the marketplace. Gowdy Field was subsequently identified as a potential redevelopment site. The site’s immediate location off a major interchange and its proximity to several large area hospitals are huge advantages for the property. However, its historical use as a landfill had prevented its redevelopment.

Creation of a new Technology Corridor in Columbus extending from Ohio State University resulted in new interest in development of the area surrounding the property. One of the companies looking at consolidating operations to this area was Time Warner Cable.

It was important for Time Warner Cable to maintain a location within the city of Columbus that included easy access to highways, bus routes and free parking. This site provides all of the amenities of a suburb, such as restaurants and walking paths, in a downtown type of setting. Plus, rather than making a move into an existing building, the new construction offered the best choices to customize the building to include all of the specifics that are wanted and needed by a high-tech company.

Time Warner moved into new facilities constructed on the approximately 18 acre property in July 2007. Following the success of their relocation to the former landfill, remaining areas of the landfill have since been occupied by Ohio State University’s James Care and a new OSU Medical Center. Approximately 600-700 individuals are currently employed at the property.
