The Columbus Downtown Development Corporation (CDDC) is excited to announce an unparalleled development opportunity in the heart of Ohio’s capital city. With stunning views of the downtown Columbus skyline and just steps away from the transformed Scioto River, this 21-acre site on the Scioto Peninsula is poised to be the region’s next great neighborhood.

Nearby amenities and attractions include:

  • The Scioto Mile – an award-winning riverfront park featuring a state-of-the art interactive fountain and eye-catching band shell.
  • Scioto Greenways – 33 acres of new greenspace reclaimed along 1 mile of the Scioto River, complete with 1.5 miles of multi-use paths and 4 kayak and canoe launches.
  • The National Veterans Memorial & Museum (Opening fall 2018) –  A 53,000-square-foot national institution dedicated to telling the individual stories and shared experiences of veterans throughout history.
  • American Museum of Natural History Galleries – A permanent dinosaur gallery and temporary exhibition gallery, occupying 22,000 square feet in Columbus’ nationally-acclaimed Center of Science and Industry (COSI).
  • Dorrian Green - A new 6.5-acre park and 600-space underground parking garage.

With the construction of civic amenities well underway, CDDC is seeking developers for the next phase of peninsula’s evolution, including residential, office, hotel and retail uses.
