From the 7/21/05 Dublin Villager:


Work begins on OhioHealth's future $130M hospital
Thursday, July 21, 2005
By MICHAEL RACEY
Villager Staff Writer


OhioHealth was expected to break ground on its future hospital in Dublin this morning (July 21).  The hospital's name was to be announced during a ceremony at the site.  Site work for the future 300,000-square-foot complex north of U.S. 33 is under way. Cheryl Herbert, president of the future facility, was expected to announce the hospital's name from a list of six finalists.

Last month, the public and OhioHealth employees voted online for their favorite name from this list: Avery, Avery Methodist, Hopewell, Hopewell Methodist, Dublin or Dublin Methodist. OhioHealth is spending $130-million on its newest facility and expects it to be open by late fall 2007.

Villager Staff Writer

 
In about three years, Dublin will have its own hospital, to be called Dublin Methodist Hospital.  Construction is under way on the OhioHealth facility, which is set to open in late fall of 2007 on 89 acres north of U.S. 33, behind the Avery Square Shopping Center.  The choice of the name was made from a list of six provided for online voting during the month of June and announced at a groundbreaking ceremony held late last week.

From Columbus Business First, 9/6/05:

Dublin making Third Frontier link

With help from a $500,000 state capital grant, the city of Dublin will connect into the Third Frontier Network to form the system's first local research pipeline.  The Central Ohio Research Network will connect Dublin's government, schools and businesses to the 1,600-mile web of high-speed wiring that links Ohio colleges and universities, research labs and hospitals.

Some benefits to Dublin include a connection between Battelle Memorial Institute's Dublin facility and its King Avenue headquarters.  McDaniel said it will be an asset to the city's plans for the planned Central Ohio Innovation Center, a 1,500-acre city plan that includes a 200-acre technology park and an OhioHealth hospital.

OSU commits to anchor Dublin research park
Jeff Bell
Business First


A nonprofit corporation that supports Ohio State University Medical Center is closing in on a development deal to make heath care and biomedical research a cornerstone of Dublin's newly created research park.  Under a city proposal that would extend land and other improvements to the project, OSU would become the first anchor tenant for Dublin's Central Ohio Innovation Center off Route 33.

The development pact, which will be outlined for the public at a Sept. 19 City Council session, is expected to include the city donating 92 acres at the research park to UMC Partners, an independent commercial development arm of OSU Medical Center.  Dublin this year spent $7.2 million to acquire the land, the first part of what it hopes will develop into a 200-acre campus.

Memorial Hospital digs in for clash with Dublin rival
Jeff Bell, Business First

Memorial Hospital of Union County administrator Nancy Conklin knows exactly how long it takes to drive from Marysville to the OhioHealth hospital under construction in Dublin.  "Fourteen minutes," said Conklin, Memorial's vice president of marketing and development.  Such a concise clocking shows she and others at Marysville's 107-bed community hospital are already bracing for the arrival of OhioHealth's Dublin Methodist Hospital two years from now. They see it as a competitor for patients from the Marysville area, the heart of Memorial's service area.

Breakthrough cancer therapy part of OSU plan for Dublin park
Jeff Bell
Business First


A facility that would provide the next generation of cancer treatments would be one of the anchors of an Ohio State University Medical Center project at Dublin's new research park.  OSU would have the first site in North America to use a new particle therapy to treat cancer patients, university President Karen Holbrook said Thursday, when she outlined the project during her annual State of the University address at the Wexner Center.

The project, she said, will be a partnership between "private entities" and UMC Partners, the independent commercial development arm of OSU Medical Center.  Ohio State officials have declined to identify companies involved in the joint venture, saying public disclosure would jeopardize negotiations.  But Business First has learned the cost of the particle therapy equipment and facility could be more than $150 million.

Sneak peek
Mockups offer glimpse of hospital's rooms
 
By LIN RICE

Employees of OhioHealth were given a chance to tour several mockups of patient rooms for Dublin Methodist Hospital Monday.  OhioHealth will host a community open house to exhibit the room mockups from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. and from 5 to 7:30 p.m. Tuesday.  Employees filtered through the three mock patient rooms from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m., smiling in approval at the wood-paneled floors and natural lighting.  The rooms were set up in a warehouse space, much like a movie set, near the hospital construction site at U.S. Route 33 and Avery-Muirfield Drive.

Dublin Methodist Hospital is scheduled to open in October 2007.  The 325,0000-square-foot, $130-million hospital will hold 94 beds, and could expand to as many as 300 beds.  The hospital is being built on 86.3 acres on the south side of Perimeter Drive, west of Avery-Muirfield Drive, by Elford Construction and Gilbane Building Co.  Dublin Methodist Hospital will be OhioHealth's fifth core hospital, and will be the first full-service facility built in Central Ohio in more than 20 years.

New tech park construction moving quickly
Center will include one-of-a-kind particle-therapy/research facility

Thursday, January 12, 2006
By MICHAEL RACEY
Villager Staff Writer


Plans are moving along quickly for Dublin's tech park -- the Central Ohio Innovation Center -- and its anchor, the Ohio State University Health and Innovation Park.  Dublin City Council was presented with updates on both projects at its first meeting of the year on Monday night.  "The planning is being pushed by a user that will be one of a kind in North America," said Ben Hale Jr., an attorney for UMC Partners, the nonprofit enterprise group for the Ohio State University Medical Center.  Part of the UMC Partners' plans are to build a 120,000-square-foot particle-therapy facility for cancer research and treatment -- a facility that does not exist anywhere else on the continent, Hale said.

Workers install highest beam of Dublin's new hospital
By LIN RICE

More than two dozen people donned white hard hats and tramped through the mud, grit and rain Thursday to view the placement of the highest structural beam of Dublin Methodist Hospital.  Hospital President Cheryl Herbert was on hand to christen the beam, as she and members of the construction crew followed the tradition of signing their names on the beam before a crane hoisted it into place.  In another traditional "topping-off" ceremony measure, workers secured an American flag and a small pine tree to the top of the beam.

OhioHealth estimates its new hospital will be ready to open by fall 2007. Elford Construction and Gilbane Building Co. began construction of the $130 million hospital July 22 on 86.3 acres on the south side of Perimeter Drive, west of Avery-Muirfield Drive in Dublin.  The 325,000-square-foot structure is located on the south side of Perimeter Drive, west of Avery-Muirfield Drive, and will house 94 private patient rooms. It can be expanded to accomodate up to 300 rooms with future construction.

SITE PLAN: This is a preliminary site plan for Ohio State University's Health & Innovation Center, a 301,000-square-foot, $200-million facility featuring a James Care cancer center, an imaging hub and a particle-therapy treatment center. The architect for the project is NBBJ.

OSU health center rezoning approved
Unanimous OK clears way for work to start

Thursday, March 23, 2006

Villager Staff Writer
 

Dublin City Council Monday night unanimously approved rezoning the 111-acre Ohio State University Health & Innovation Center site within the 1,500-acre Central Ohio Innovation Center.  Approval, which came without questions or comments, clears the way for work to begin on the project, likely sometime this summer, according to Ben Hale Jr., an attorney representing UMC Partners, a nonprofit development group for OSU's Medical Center.

The 301,000-square-foot facility and site will cost an estimated $200-million and will house three health-care components in one building, according to officials for UMC Partners.  Dublin is donating $7-million worth of land to UMC Partners for the project and will spend more than $20-million on renovating and expanding the interchange of U.S. Route 33 and Post Road as the gateway to the tech park and center.

From Business First of Columbus, 5/23/06:

Dublin tech park lands $750K earmark
Business First of Columbus - 2:08 PM EDT Tuesday
 
Dublin's Central Ohio Innovation Center is slated to get $750,000 from the fiscal 2007 energy and water development appropriations bill passed by the House Appropriations Committee.  The money will go toward water and sewer infrastructure improvements at the proposed 1,500-acre tech park.  The spending bill still needs to pass the whole House of Representatives and Senate.

Congresswoman Deborah Pryce (R-Upper Arlington) and Congressman Pat Tiberi (R-Genoa Township) requested the funding.  Construction of the tech park along Route 33 in Dublin is scheduled to begin by the end of the year.  Dublin is spending about $25 million in construction and improvements to roads near the site.

Dublin has secured $750,000 in federal money for its tech park, the Central Ohio Innovation Center.  The funds are part of the 2007 U.S. energy and water appropriations bill.  They will help Dublin pay for necessary water- and sewer-system installations and improvements in the tech park -- a 1,500-acre site on the city's western edge.  Dublin is planning on spending more than $22-million to reconstruct the intersection of U.S. 33 and state Route 161.  It will serve as the gateway to the park.  Construction should begin next year.

Dublinís plan for a new interchange at Rts. 161 and 33 is supposed to help northwestern Franklin County manage growth and the city market its 1,500-acre techbusiness center.  The mix of stop signs and traffic lights at the current interchange in southeastern Union County confuses motorists, said Paul Hammersmith, Dublinís city engineer.

Dublin is working on a design for a partial cloverleaf to replace the interchange, Hammersmith said.  Plans call for construction to begin by November. The project will be completed by the end of 2008, if no obstacles pop up.  But the owner of a farm at the intersection is fighting the cityís plans to force him to sell nearly 10 acres for one branch of the cloverleaf.

By MICHAEL RACEY
Villager Staff Writer


Dublin received kudos from a panel of corporate business leaders for development of its tech park, the Central Ohio Innovation Center, last week.  The COIC is a 1,500-acre venture in the southwest section of Dublin.  The Ohio State University Medical Center will be the anchor and plans to spend $200-million on three facilities in the park.

Dublin donated about 100 acres of tech-park land to UMC Partners, the business-development wing of OSU's medical center, for the project.  The city also is spending $22-million on the reconstruction of an improved interchange at U.S. Route 33 and Post Road as the gateway to the COIC.

136,000-square-foot Shamrock Crossing development planned
Thursday, December 7, 2006
By MARK MAJOR
Villager Staff Writer


Dublin's Planning & Zoning Commission is expected to consider a zoning change that could lead to the development of about 24 acres at West Dublin-Granville Road and Shamrock Boulevard.  The developers of Shamrock Crossing will attend tonight's P&Z meeting to request a change in zoning from residential and suburban office and industrial district to planned-unit-development district.

The site's owners plan a 136,000-square-foot development made up of retail, office and service uses.  The issue was tabled after October's commission meeting amid concerns the proposed development might not be in keeping with the desired character of the West Dublin-Granville Road area, as envisioned by city officials.  "What planning commission wanted was a more urban streetscape, with buildings located closer to the street," said Claudia Husak, city planner. "They asked for a distinct streetscape and a pedestrian-centered environment."

Council hears proposal for Tartan Ridge development
Preliminary plans call for 246 single-family homes and 24 townhouse units in the $400,000 to $800,000 price range.

By KATHLEEN L. RADCLIFF
 
A new development -- with residences in the $400,000 to $800,000 price range -- might be coming to the Dublin landscape.  Dublin City Council held the first reading of a rezoning application and development plan for Tartan Ridge during a meeting Monday.  The area consists of 189.57 acres located north of the intersection of Hyland-Croy and McKitrick Roads. It is bordered to the east by Jerome Road and to the north by Brock Road.

The plan calls for the development of 246 single-family homes and 24 townhouse units, priced in the $400,000 to $800,000 range, approximately 68,500 square feet of commercial space and 69.14 acres of open space.

"We're trying to think of a central place, so that when people think of Dublin they think of this. This would be their picture of Dublin."

Dublin needs that very badly. When I think of Dublin, I think of Sawmill Rd. and the commercial park near Tuttle. Don't get me wrong though, for a commercial park its quite nice.

City to review 'incubator' facility plan
Thursday, April 5, 2007
By BRITTINY DUNLAP
Villager Staff Writer


Funding sources are materializing for a concept designed to foster new technology companies in Dublin and central Ohio.  At the heart of the plan will be an "incubator" facility that would be on a site yet to be determined in the city's 1,500-acre Central Ohio Innovation Center at the Route 33-state Route 161 interchange.  The incubator would house several start-up companies, allowing them to share resources and be housed in a single 11,500-square-foot facility.

The nonprofit TechColumbus, which is involved with the effort, announced Friday the state's Third Frontier Commission awarded a $6.2-million grant for the Entrepreneurial Signature Program (ESP), a regional initiative to increase the number of new technology businesses in the 15-county central Ohio region.  Part of the money will be used to establish the Dublin incubator, and a similar facility in New Albany.

Council members OK technology agreement with TechColumbus
Thursday, June 7, 2007
By BRITTINY DUNLAP
Villager Staff Writer


Dublin City Council seemed much happier with the revised proposal for a partnership with TechColumbus, a nonprofit company that will help foster new technology companies in Dublin and central Ohio.  Council approved the partnership in a 6-0 vote Monday.  One aspect of the plan is developing "deal flow," which Deputy City Manager Dana McDaniel defined as the number of entrepreneurial business opportunities being brought forth to justify the need for an "incubator."  The incubator is a single facility that would house several start-up companies, allowing them to share resources.

Won't ODOT have to pay this farmer guy for not only the land they take, but also the diminished economic value of the rest of his property which will lose highway access?  That could get real expensive.

Methodist hospital work on schedule
Thursday, April 5, 2007
By BRITTINY DUNLAP
Villager Staff Writer
 

Dublin Methodist Hospital President Cheryl Herbert can visualize almost exactly what the facility will look like as she winds her way around the construction site. After all, she has been working with the project for nearly three years.  As completion nears, Herbert couldn't be more excited that construction will be finished not only on time, in October, but also on budget. The $130-million hospital affiliated with OhioHealth is going up at 7500 Hospital Drive, on 89 acres south of Perimeter Drive and north of U.S. Route 33. It officially will open for business Jan. 8, 2008, and the staff will spend November and December hosting a variety of open houses for the community to come in and tour the facility.

For more information, visit www.ohiohealth.com/dublin.

Dublin Methodist Hospital sets standard with its design
By KATHLEEN L. RADCLIFF 
 
"We hope you never need us," Lamont Yoder, Dublin Methodist Hospital Vice President and Chief Nursing Officer said during a tour of the new facility last week.  But, if you do, construction of Dublin Methodist Hospital is estimated to be complete Oct. 31, and open to accept patients in January 2008, Hospital Chief Executive Officer Cheryl Herbert said.

"We're ramping up in terms of personnel, and we are in the process of hiring the management team," she said from the hospital's administrative offices.  "It is going to get a bit more crowded in here soon, because our directors will be starting here at the end of June," she said.

Cardinal adding to headquarters
Thursday, October 4, 2007 - 3:48 AM
By Marla Matzer Rose, THE COLUMBUS DISPATCH


Cardinal Health began work yesterday on a second headquarters building that will accommodate 700 jobs being brought to its Dublin campus as part of a consolidation.  Chief Executive R. Kerry Clark said the new building will be a slightly smaller version of the 10-year-old headquarters, at 250,000 square feet compared with 375,000 square feet. He joked that the "bridge to nowhere" -- a covered walkway that leads from the existing building and was built with the intention of connecting to a second building -- will now become a "road to somewhere."

Dublin hospital hopes to draw patients as well as it has lured construction
By Carrie Ghose, Reporter - Business First
December 10, 2007, 12:00am EST


Dublin Methodist Hospital bills itself as a testing ground for the latest research in health care construction and operations.  But when the latest OhioHealth Corp. facility opens Jan. 8, 2008, it will be watched for other reasons as well.

Smallish now at 94 beds, the hospital has the capacity to grow to 300 beds, and it could draw patients away from its neighbors, including OhioHealth's Riverside Methodist Hospital in Columbus, Mount Carmel St. Ann's Hospital in Westerville and Memorial Hospital in Marysville.  The medical office building construction boom around it also could lead to a shift in where primary care and specialty practices operate.
( . . . )
Dublin saw its population quadruple between 1980 and 1990 and double again since then to an estimated 39,000 in 2006.  Growth is expected to continue at a 6 percent annualized clip for five more years.  The hospital's service area also includes Powell, Hilliard, Plain City and parts of southern Union and Delaware counties.  Those markets mean a higher percentage of patients with private insurance will visit the hospital.

Wirchanski fighting to keep farmland
Wednesday,  September 3, 2008
By CHRIS ALEXIS, ThisWeek Staff Writer


John Wirchanski is fighting with Dublin over land that has been in his family for more than 170 years.  Wirchanski owns about 100 acres of farmland at the intersection of Post Road and U.S. Route 33.

Dublin wants to take 20 acres of his land located off Industrial Parkway, north of state Route 161.  U.S. Route 33 bisects the area.  Wirchanski's land, in Union County, is the biggest piece of land the city is trying to acquire so it can reconfigure the highway interchange into a partial cloverleaf.

Wirchanski suggested increasing the size of the existing ramps instead, but Dublin didn't agree with him.  He is also resisting four roundabouts Dublin wants to install -- three along state Route 161 and one at Industrial Parkway.

Cardinal growth covers spectrum
Health company's headquarters gets so big, it needs color coding, and it might grow more

Monday,  March 23, 2009 - 3:00 AM
By Mike Pramik, The Columbus Dispatch


Cardinal's $50 million, four-story addition expands the corporate campus to more than 600,000 square feet.  It will be able to accommodate 2,650 employees, including 950 in the addition.  Initially, about 500 will move into the new space.  They're mostly from Cardinal's medical-products supply-chain business based near Chicago, said spokesman Troy Kirkpatrick.  When they do, they'll encounter a modern interpretation of the corporate office, as designed by Bird Houk Collaborative.

Dublinís Oak Park getting houses, but retail section still a waiting game
By Kevin Kemper, Columbus Business First
August 24, 2009, 12:00am EDT


An economy in recession plus a struggling housing market have put a retail development connected to a tony Dublin housing project on hold until a recovery emerges.

More than two years after revealing plans for the project, Columbus developer Jerome Solove Development Inc. has put its 39,700-square-foot retail and office center planned for Hyland Croy Road on hold until spring 2010 Ė and perhaps longer if the market doesnít respond.

Dublin incentives to aid push for green businesses
By Jeff Bell, Columbus Business First
September 21, 2009, 12:00am EDT


Dublinís hopes of attracting green businesses have received a double shot in the arm.  City Council on Sept. 8 signed off on an incentive to bring the Ohio Fuel Cell Coalition to the Dublin Entrepreneurial Center off Post Road.  Council also voted to create a green business incubator at the center, offering rent subsidies and other financial help to fledgling companies locating there.

The moves are another indication that Dublin wants to encourage the development of research and technology companies, said Dana McDaniel, deputy city manager and economic development director. ... The seven-month-old Entrepreneurial Center, a partnership between Dublin, TechColumbus and other groups that support small businesses, has office spaces sized for one- and two-person startups.

It also provides tenants with entrepreneurial training, help with finding venture capital and other support services.  It has 14 tenants, with another 11 in the wings to sign leases, McDaniel said.

Developers of medical offices have space on hand amid slowed demand
Scott Rawdon, Columbus Business First
September 28, 2009, 12:00am EDT


Developers of medical office buildings surrounding the new Dublin Methodist Hospital have found that filling the space with doctors is a process that calls for patience.

Daimler Group Inc. has been an active developer in the area, constructing four buildings near the hospital, including a 100,000-square-foot facility done in partnership with Dublin Methodist on its campus.  Itís the only medical office structure attached to the building, connected via a second-floor walkway.  Called the Dublin MOB, itís home to physician practices, said Paul Ghidotti, Daimlerís executive vice president.

OhioHealth Corp. opened the hospital in January 2008 west of Avery Road and north of Route 161 at 7500 Hospital Drive.  It caused an immediate saturation of medical office space in Dublin, creating a tenantís market and keeping developers on their toes to lure clients.

Delta Energy mulling move to Dublin
By Matt Burns, Columbus Business First
Updated: October 19, 2009, 4:10pm EDT


A proposed relocation for one of Central Ohioís largest privately held companies could also be a homecoming of sorts.

Columbus-based Delta Energy LLC is eyeing a move to Dublin, where the company has proposed building a new headquarters on a more than 4-acre parcel the city owns at the southwest corner of Emerald Parkway and Perimeter Drive.

Development won't be as brisk next year
Wednesday,  December 23, 2009 - 2:31 PM
By Jennifer Noblit, ThisWeek Staff Writer


Development in Dublin will be down -- but not out -- in 2010.  The recession means development and construction in the city will continue to decline next year, but a few major projects will continue to progress.  City Manager Terry Foegler said the IGS Energy headquarters on Emerald Parkway is set to open in 2010, and Delta Energy should start building its corporate headquarters at the intersection of Perimeter Drive and Commerce Parkway.  The final phase of Emerald Parkway will begin.  The last leg will extend Emerald Parkway from Riverside Drive to Bright Road, which stretches from Riverside to Sawmill Road. 

Growth in the northwest side of the city will slow in 2010, especially with the dissolution of the economic development agreement between Dublin and Ohio Proton Therapy.  The company had hoped to build a cancer treatment center to anchor the city's Central Ohio Innovation Center, but financing could not be found by the end-of-the-year deadline, so development is slowing in the area around the state Route 161, U.S. Route 33 and Post Road intersection.  Planning in 2010 will include the Bridge Street Corridor study.  It should be completed in the first half of the year, although Foegler said the study could lead to additional work.

Dublin once again commissioning a large, outdoor work
Sunday,  January 3, 2010 - 3:14 AM
By Jeffrey Sheban, THE COLUMBUS DISPATCH


The little city with a big reputation for public art is at it again.  Dublin -- home to monuments depicting Wyandot Chief Leatherlips, golfer Jack Nicklaus and 109 ears of concrete corn -- will commission its first large-scale permanent work in nearly a decade.  Three out-of-state artists are vying for a $150,000 stipend to create an outdoor sculpture near the city-owned Karrer Barn, built in the late 1870s, at 225 S. High St. Installation later this year is set to coincide with the city's bicentennial.

Dublin's last major art project came in 2001, when Going, Going . . . Gone! -- a multi-piece bronze sculpture marking the passage of time through baseball imagery -- went up along Cosgray Road.  Previous works include Leatherlips (1990), Out of Bounds (1992), Field of Corn (With Osage Orange Trees) (1994), Relief Sculptures (1996), Watch House (1998) and the Nicklaus tribute (1999).  The city changed its focus after 2001, investing in more than 40 smaller sculptures and reliefs, most of which can be seen in Coffman Park and several public buildings.  "We are going back to the way we used to do it, and I think it will be fun," said David S. Guion, executive director of the Dublin Arts Council and a nonvoting member of the selection committee.

Rhode Island artist to create Dublin Bicentennial piece
By Kathleen L. Radcliff, Columbus Local News
Published: Thursday, February 11, 2010 - 7:22 PM EST


Dublin Arts Council Executive Director David Guion announced during Dublin City Council's regular session Monday, Feb. 8 that the Dublin Bicentennial Public Art selection committee chose Brower Hatcher as the recipient of the project's $150,000 all-inclusive commission. 

Hatcher's artistic concept is to build the memory of the historic George M. Karrer blacksmith shop that once stood on the Karrer Barn property, 225 S. High St., in Historic Dublin, Cooper said.  The property is owned by the city and was selected as the site for the Bicentennial Public Artwork installation.

Hatcher proposes building the old foundation with the hearth, an anvil and the historic wheelwright table to re-create the image of the building as a digital matrix in powder-coated metal rod with reflective discs creating the effects of dissolution and of light.  Hatcher envisions the approximate 13-foot-square, 16-foot-tall structure as a sophisticated trellis, which could be allowed to support a growth of climbing vines to periodically hide the structure.

Saturday,  February 20, 2010 - 3:02 AM
By Holly Zachariah, The Columbus Dispatch


Some of the people who might have to look at the public art project planned for an entrance to their Dublin neighborhood intend to tell the City Council on Monday night "not so fast and not here."  The council is expected to vote Monday on whether to approve a $150,000 contract with a Rhode Island artist to build a stone-and-steel sculpture on a piece of city land known as the Karrer property.

The piece will be a modern take on an old blacksmith's shop.  It is to have a 13-foot-square stone base and be 16 feet high.  It is to include a stone wheelwright table, and the outside is to be covered with climbing vines.  A selection committee put together by the Dublin Arts Council chose the design this month for the city's bicentennial celebration this year.

Below is a rendering of the art project and a location map.

Dublin OKs public art despite complaints
Some residents suggest court fight

THE COLUMBUS DISPATCH
 

Despite opposition from the surrounding neighborhood, the Dublin City Council voted last night to approve a piece of public art on city-owned, historic land.

By a 5-2 vote, the council authorized a $150,000 contract with Providence, R.I., artist Brower Hatcher for his art: a modern take on an old blacksmith's shop.  It is to celebrate Dublin's bicentennial this year.

Council members Michael Keenan and Richard Gerber voted against the contract, saying the site-selection process didn't do enough to take into consideration the character and protection of the Historic District.

Dublin: State of the City
Despite economic turndown, Dublin still moving ahead

BY KATHLEEN L. RADCLIFF, COLUMBUS LOCAL NEWS
Published: Tuesday, March 9, 2010 - 8:01 PM EST


"It would be very easy to say, the state of the city is good," Dublin City Manager Terry Foegler said, as he delivered the State-of-the-City address.  Foegler reminded those gathered that, "In spite of the economic turndown, Dublin had many positive stories to tell."  The theme of this year's address, "200 years. One Community. Endless Possibilities," honors the city's past, celebrates its present, and looks forward to its future.

In looking back and moving forward, "There were pivotal and catalytic events that laid the foundation for growth and development in Dublin," Foegler said, including the construction of Interstate 270 and U.S. Route 33, creating accessibility to the city, and opening up Dublin for development; Ashland, Inc. making its corporate home in the city and setting the tone for future high quality office development; and the Muirfield Village Golf Club and residential community, setting the stage for well-planned residential development and providing utilities for the expansion of the city.

"Dublin is a relatively new community," he said, growing from a population of 681 in 1970 to 41,000 in 2009.  "Nearly 65,000 people work in the city, and we are home to, literally, thousands of companies."  However, city officials continue to face the challenge of continuous reinvestment in high quality services to its residents and in its community facilities, while facing, for the first time in its history, a decline in income tax revenues.

Dublin taketh, and now Dublin giveth away eminent domain land
Business First of Columbus - by Brian R. Ball
Monday, May 3, 2010


An indefinite delay in the construction of an upgraded interchange at Post Road and Route 33 has prompted the city of Dublin to postpone its acquisition of private property it will need to complete the project.  The city on April 21 filed notices of abandonment in three eminent domain lawsuits awaiting trial in Union and Franklin counties.  Those notices ask the landowners to return a combined $6 million the city had paid for the properties ahead of jury trials to determine how much more, if any, the owners would receive for the public taking of their land.

Dublin paid landowners Post Hylands Co., John Wirchanski and Dennis Hoffer for the land at Dublinís appraised value in late 2008, according to the lawsuits.  Wirchanski, owner of the Hallís Corner farm next to the existing interchange, received $6.88 million for nearly 19.8 acres.  According to a court filing, Dublin wants to temporarily abandon acquisition of about 15.1 acres of Wirchanskiís land and will seek repayment of $5.25 million.  Post Hylands has been asked to return $685,670, while Hoffer has been asked to return $82,430, according to filings.

Wirchanski attorney Michael Braunstein called Dublinís legal maneuvering ďnonsenseĒ ahead of an expected trial in a few months.  He argued the city effectively took possession of the property when it cut down trees, stored drainage pipes and dug ditches in connection with other improvements in the area.  ďOnce theyíve entered the land and done work, itís too late for them to abandonĒ an eminent domain proceeding, said Braunstein, a Goldman & Braunstein LLP partner.

Dublin loses bid to get refund for land taken for Rt. 33 interchange
City was trying to give back property, get $5 million

Tuesday,  May 4, 2010 - 2:53 AM
By Holly Zachariah, THE COLUMBUS DISPATCH


The poor economy has caused Dublin to delay its lofty plan for a new, $50 million interchange at Rt. 33 and Post Road.  And with the plan scuttled for the foreseeable future, Dublin had asked a Union County judge to force a landowner to return more than $5 million the city paid him when it took part of his property through eminent domain for the interchange project.

John Wirchanski, whose family has owned the land known as Hall's Corner for centuries, had three tracts totaling nearly 20 acres taken.  The city is using one parcel of 4.65 acres and doesn't want its $1.63 million returned for that.  But Dublin says it now has no use for the other two parcels and wants its $5.25 million back.

Wirchanski argued that the city can't abandon the project when crews already have dug up some of the property and taken down a barn and more than 30 mature trees.  Union County Common Pleas Judge Don Fraser sided with him, ruling late yesterday afternoon that Dublin has taken possession of Wirchanski's land and that he will not have to repay the city.

Dublin stuck with land for stalled Route 33 project
Business First of Columbus - by Matt Burns
Tuesday, May 4, 2010


The city of Dublin has suffered a major blow in its effort to postpone the acquisition of private property for an idled interchange upgrade at Post Road and Route 33.  Dublin City Manager Terry Foegler told Columbus Business First a Union County judge this week threw out the cityís request to recover about $5.25 million from landowner John Wirchanski and abandon the acquisition of 15.1 acres he originally owned.  The city in late 2008 paid Wirchanski, owner of the Hallís Corner farm next to the existing interchange, nearly $6.9 million for almost 20 acres as it prepared for the upgrade.

Since then, dwindling income tax receipts and stalled development in the area have prompted Dublin officials to sideline plans to expand the intersectionís capacity.  Land acquisitions, right-of-way grants, engineering plans and the construction tab for the project were expected to top $50 million.

Bike path enters final design stage
Tuesday, June 1, 2010 - 5:47 PM
By JENNIFER NOBLIT, ThisWeek Staff Writer


A bike path that would provide access to Historic Dublin from the south via Dublin Road has reached the final design phase.  Dublin City Council members received an update last week on a multi-use path that will be installed on the west side of Dublin Road from Tuttle Road to Karrer Place.  Council gave staff permission to proceed with final plans.

According to civil engineer Michael Sweder, the final design of the path will be finished this year, with land acquisition planned for next year and construction scheduled for 2012.  "This path is a great connection to Historic Dublin," he said, adding that the plan is supported by the city's Bicycle Advisory Task Force.

Dublin: City pays $1.5 million for Bright Rd. parkland
Thursday, September 30, 2010
By Jennifer Noblit, ThisWeek Staff Writer


Dublin will spend $1.5 million for 21 acres known as the Holder property at 4279 Bright Rd., which will become a park.  The deal approved by the City Council last week concludes what parks director Fred Hahn said was a deal in the works for 17 years.  Washington Township contributed $460,000 to the purchase.

Hahn said the park will be planned next year, but it will be passive space and will include educational elements.

Bicentennial art plans near completion
Wednesday, December 15, 2010 - 12:00 PM
By JENNIFER NOBLIT
ThisWeek Community Newspapers


Dublin's bicentennial public art will be constructed after the city wraps up celebrating the milestone.  Dublin City Council members last week got an update on the bicentennial public artwork bound for the Karrer Barn property at 225 S. High St., and on-site construction is slated for the spring.

Rhode Island-based artist Brower Hatcher was chosen last February to craft the $150,000 public artwork to commemorate Dublin's bicentennial.  The project, which will consist of a steel framework blacksmith shop on a limestone foundation, was put on hold after residents objected to elements of the artwork, including the location, color and size.

More about Dublin's Bicentennial art project from today's Dispatch...

Residents in revolt over artwork
Dublin subdivision requesting change in latest project

Saturday,  February 20, 2010 - 3:02 AM
By Holly Zachariah, The Columbus Dispatch


Some of the people who might have to look at the public art project planned for an entrance to their Dublin neighborhood intend to tell the City Council on Monday night "not so fast and not here."  The council is expected to vote Monday on whether to approve a $150,000 contract with a Rhode Island artist to build a stone-and-steel sculpture on a piece of city land known as the Karrer property.

The piece will be a modern take on an old blacksmith's shop.  It is to have a 13-foot-square stone base and be 16 feet high.  It is to include a stone wheelwright table, and the outside is to be covered with climbing vines.  A selection committee put together by the Dublin Arts Council chose the design this month for the city's bicentennial celebration this year.

Below is a rendering of the art project and a location map.

Dublin OKs public art despite complaints
Some residents suggest court fight

Tuesday,  February 23, 2010 - 2:47 AM
By Holly Zachariah
THE COLUMBUS DISPATCH
 

Despite opposition from the surrounding neighborhood, the Dublin City Council voted last night to approve a piece of public art on city-owned, historic land.

By a 5-2 vote, the council authorized a $150,000 contract with Providence, R.I., artist Brower Hatcher for his art: a modern take on an old blacksmith's shop.  It is to celebrate Dublin's bicentennial this year.

Council members Michael Keenan and Richard Gerber voted against the contract, saying the site-selection process didn't do enough to take into consideration the character and protection of the Historic District.

Nestle USA Inc. is considering securing more room in Dublinís technology park.

The food giant is negotiating with the city to buy about 10 acres next to its 45,000-square-foot quality assurance center on Eiterman Road.  The deal would include 4.7 acres the city owns nearby, plus about 5 acres from a 17.7-acre parcel that Dublin would buy from Ohio State University.

Dublin launching TechDEC for startups wanting data center access
By Rick Rouan, Staff Reporter - Columbus Business First
Updated: December 13, 2011, 4:17pm EST


The city of Dublin is adding a companion to the Dublin Entrepreneurial Center, offering 1,000 square feet of leased training space next to a new data center.

Dublin City Council has agreed to lease a boardroom and two conference rooms at 565 Metro Place South, the site of a data center being established by Metro Data Center LLC, for one year at a cost of $25,000.  The space will serve as an information technology-focused center called TechDEC that will supplement the Dublin Entrepreneurial Center, which was established in 2009 at 7003 Post Road.

There also was some big development news for Dublin outside the Bridge Street Corridor Planning Area this week.  About two miles west of that planning area, Ohio University purchased approximately 15 acres of land containing two office buildings near the intersection of Rt. 33 and Post Road.  Buckeye Check Cashing and the Dublin Entrepreneurial Center are currently in the existing three and four-story buildings at 7001 & 7003 Post Road totaling approximately 100,000 sq. ft. purchased along with the 15 acre property.

Apparently this development is many years in the making - but only came together in recent months.  The City of Dublin owns almost 100 acres surrounding the OU-purchased land on Post Road.  Dublin amassed the land with long-range plans to attract research and/or biomedical projects.  Last year, the Columbus-based Osteopathic Heritage Foundations pledged $105 million over 16 years to Ohio University for the purpose of creating its own medical college and to support expanded research and treatment of diabetes.  Officials said the first $29 million of the gift would be used to buy land, build a medical college in central Ohio and develop its campus, to be called the Ohio University Heritage College of Osteopathic Medicine.

As part of the Ohio University land purchase, the City of Dublin will give the university two tracts surrounding it - totaling about 71 acres.  As part of an agreement that will going to Dublin's City Council, both OU and Dublin would have a say in deciding how that land is developed and would share in the infrastructure development costs.  This land is noted as Subarea One and Subarea Two in the site map shown below.

Dublin would keep about 25 acres fronting the Rt. 33 highway, with an eye toward development that would support the medical college.  Both Dublin and OU officials seemed to think this would include a hotel/conference center in that location, with work on a hotel beginning as soon as 2014.  This land is noted as Subarea Three in the site map below.

OU officials say the medical college is expected to open with at least 50 students in fall 2014.  The universityís plans for the land surrounding the new medical college would include a day-care center, some residential housing, arts and cultural facilities and research laboratories by 2017.  Below, in addition to the site map of the land tracts, are three recent articles from the Columbus Dispatch and Columbus Business First about the new Ohio University medical college to be located in Dublin.

Dispatch: Ohio University, Dublin work out details for medical college

Dispatch: Dublin planning to donate land for medical college - City would give Ohio University 71 acres off Post Rd. near Rt. 33

Now people will really start thinking OU is in Columbus. I remember when the signs on I-70 at 256 went up for OU-Pickerington and OU-Lancaster they just said "Ohio University Next Exit" and people from outside the area started telling me they thought it was really neat that both OU and Ohio State were in Columbus. I think they changed the signs later.

Well, not all development news in Dublin revolves around its historic downtown or the Bridge Street Corridor Plan.  There is still some conventional suburban-type development left to finish - like the eighth and final phase of Emerald Parkway located north of I-270 in the city. 

According to the below linked ThisWeekNews article, Emerald Parkway been in the works for 18 years.  This final phase will connect Riverside Drive to Sawmill Parkway and is expected to be completed in November 2014.  Once completed, Emerald Parkway would connect Tuttle Crossing Boulevard to the south with Sawmill Road to the north.  The final stretch of Emerald Parkway will run about a mile and open up land that has been marked for office space in Dublin's land use plan.

Buyer wins Corazon auction with $3.5 million bid
By Brian R. Ball, Columbus Business First
Updated: June 4, 2015, 12:34pm EDT


An out-of-town investment group with local partners has won the bidding for the Corazon fitness and event venue.  But the identity of the group bidding the reserve price of $3.5 million may remain a mystery until the closing next month.  Thatís the word from Savage Real Estate broker Bryan Savage, who marketed the 58,000-square-foot property ahead of the Auction.com online bidding this week.

Savage told me he showed the property 30 times but just seven investment groups paid the refundable $10,000 deposit to bid on the property.  Those interested included investment groups from New York City, Chicago, Dubai and China.

The City of Dublin was not among the bidders despite Corazonís potential as a second recreation center.  Savage said the auction format blocked any interest Dublin may have had because of the need to get pre-approval from city council and the tight closing deadline.  "They could not have moved quickly enough,Ē he said.

Dublin set to buy vacant land from Nationwide at significant discount
By Evan Weese, Staff Reporter- Columbus Business First
January 25, 2016, 1:41pm EST


Dublin plans to acquire vacant land next to Nationwide Mutual Insurance Co.ís offices on Rings Road at a price several million dollars below what the insurer paid for it, eyeing the 23.7-acre site for future development.  Dublin City Council on Monday evening is scheduled to consider a $2 million deal for the property with the Columbus insurance companyís Nationwide Realty Investors Ltd. affiliate, according to a copy of the ordinance.

The property, at the northwest corner of Frantz and Rings roads, across from the cityís Field of Corn installation, is considered key to the competitiveness of Dublinís legacy office parks. ... No specific development plans have been put forth.

Nationwide acquired the land in 2004 with plans to resell it or find a partner to jointly develop it.  The company paid $7.44 million. ... Most of the Nationwide's workers from the 401,500-square-foot building it leases at 5100 Rings Road next door will be relocating to Grandview Yard as part of an ongoing centralization of operations near downtown Columbus.

The previous Dublin development thread has been divided into two threads.

This one now encompasses any development projects in Dublin that are not within the Bridge Street District planning area.  The Bridge Street District planning area now its own separate thread at http://www.urbanohio.com/forum2/index.php/topic,4391.msg798088.html#msg798088.

The map below shows the City of Dublin in green and the Bridge Street District in black.  Typical projects outside the Bridge Street District that would be included in this Dublin thread would be office projects along I-270, development projects along Rt. 33 and Muirfield Village type residential projects:

Developer buys 46 acres of vacant land in Dublin, office projects likely
By Evan Weese, Staff Reporter - Columbus Business First
Updated: March 29, 2016, 3:19pm EDT


VanTrust Real Estate LLC has acquired 46.4 acres of vacant land in Dublin, with future development plans likely to include at least an office component.  The Kansas City, Missouri-based developer paid $425,000 for each of three sites - nearly $1.3 million total - straddling Interstate 270 north of Rings Road after ďpreliminary discussionsĒ with potential tenants, but does not yet have specifics worked out, Executive Vice President Andy Weeks said.
( . . . )
Two of the sites are zoned to allow for the cityís input: A 16-acre parcel abutting I-270 and a 16-acre parcel to the west, along Emerald Parkway, are zoned as Planned Unit Development.  That means Dublinís Planning and Zoning Commission will discuss a general proposal with VanTrust and determine whether it is appropriate for the site and consistent with the community plan.  A 14.4-acre parcel along Blazer Parkway east of Ashland Chemical is zoned for office, lab or research uses.

Dublin office building being vacated by Nationwide lands new tenant bringing 2,000 employees
By Carrie Ghose, Staff Reporter - Columbus Business First
Updated: April 5, 2016, 12:09pm EDT


A 401,000-square-foot office building in Dublin that Nationwide Mutual Insurance Co. is vacating as it consolidates downtown and at Grandview Yard won't stay empty for long.

Cardinal Health Inc. will move some 2,000 employees and contractors into the seven-story building at 5100 Rings Road starting in 2018, the Dublin-based health-care distributor confirmed to Columbus Business First.  The company will consolidate employees from four other Dublin office buildings in waves that will take three to four years.

^ A little more about Cardinal Health's move into the seven-story, 401,000 sq. ft. building being vacated by Nationwide in Dublin:

Cardinal Health jumps at the chance to unite scattered workers in Dublin
By Carrie Ghose, Staff Reporter - Columbus Business First
April 5, 2016, 12:32pm EDT


Cardinal Health Inc. has added more than 800 jobs in Central Ohio since mid-2013 Ė hitting 5,000 employees in the region at the end of 2015.  It's been running out of places to put them.

Dublin's largest employer found a solution in the pending vacancy of a 401,000-square-foot, seven-story office building less than 2 miles from its corporate headquarters on Emerald Parkway.  Nationwide Mutual Insurance Co. is moving employees to a new campus in Grandview Yard when its lease expires next April at 5100 Rings Road.  The Class A building is one of the 20 largest in Central Ohio.

Cardinal confirmed Monday it will move 2,000 workers into the 5100 Rings Road building starting in early 2018.  It's consolidating staff now spread among four different Dublin office buildings, all dotting a 2-mile stretch of Interstate 270 through the suburb.  They'll move in waves over three years, leaving vacancies in 6600 Kilgour Place, 6000 Parkwood Place, 5515 Parkcenter Circle and 5545 Rings Road.

In the above article it was also mentioned that the former Nationwide building has more capacity than the $50 million addition to Cardinal's main campus completed in 2009.  Here's an aerial photo of that addition under construction.  I-270 is at the top of the photo and Emerald Parkway is at the bottom right of the photo.  The walkway connecting the two HQ buildings spans North Fork Indian Run:



Here's the finished addition:

Indoor trampoline park coming to Dublin
By Evan Weese, Staff Reporter - Columbus Business First
Updated: April 6, 2016, 11:46am EDT


A California-based operator of indoor trampoline parks has chosen a site in Dublin for its next facility.  Rockiní Jump will build the 29,000-square-foot facility at the southeast corner of Emerald Parkway and Shier Rings Road.  The 2.3-acre vacant site is across Shier Rings Road from Stanley Steemer's corporate headquarters, adjacent to the Corporate Park of Dublin office park.  (At 29,000 square feet, it's about the size of a small supermarket.)

Based in the San Francisco area, Rockin' Jump operates about 30 parks, mostly in the U.S. ...  With plans recently approved by Dublinís Planning and Zoning Commission, the facility expects to break ground this summer and open early next year.  The two-story facility Ė with a mezzanine to watch jumpers from above Ė will take eight to 12 months to build.  A project cost was not disclosed.

City, Union County seek grants for 33-161-Post project
By SARAH SOLE, ThisWeek Community News
Updated: September 7, 2016 - 3:30 PM


Dublin and Union County expect to hear results in February about funding requests for improvements to the interchange at U.S. Route 33 and state Route 161-Post Road.  Design and construction for the project is $43.4 million.

Improvements will include two loop ramps to eliminate left turn conflicts to enter the U.S. 33 ramps.  Intersections with both the east and west ramp terminals will be controlled via multi-lane roundabouts.  Funding requests include $18.53 million from the Mid-Ohio Regional Planning Commission and $20.68 million from the Ohio Department of Transportation.
( . . . )
An estimated 65,000 vehicles use the interchange daily.  City officials expect those numbers to continue to grow based on the amount of freight traveling through the interchange as well as the evolution of Ohio University's Dublin medical campus and other area development. ... Union County is the funding applicant and partnered with Dublin.

OU considers more development at Dublin campus
By SARAH SOLE, ThisWeek Community News
Updated: September 21, 2016 - 2:21 PM


Ohio University is looking into developing its Dublin campus.  Officials are studying the feasibility of adding a hotel-conference center and a wellness center to campus, said Thomas Raabe, project manager for the Dublin campus.
( . . . )
The Dublin campus totals about 105 acres of land, and 25 acres have been developed.  The Heritage College of Osteopathic Medicine opened in July 2014.  The Dublin Integrated Education Center was completed in April 2015, with OU's College of Health Sciences and Professions being an anchor tenant.  The current campus also includes two OhioHealth medical education buildings, the Osteopathic Heritage Foundation Anatomy Laboratory and the integrated education center.

Ohio U, Dublin have three-phase plan for city's last big acreage
By Mary Mogan Edwards, The Columbus Dispatch
Updated: March 11, 2017 at 12:34 PM


Ohio University and Dublin are putting the finishing touches on plans that envision the city's last big expanse of undeveloped land evolving into a bustling district of people studying, researching, inventing, working and living.  What Dublin calls its West Innovation District currently is 1,100 acres that is mostly farmland, with the four buildings of Ohio University's medical campus at its center.  If plans pan out over the next 30 to 50 years, that acreage could contain research facilities, light manufacturing, offices, apartments and parks.

For folks who relish planning at that scale, this might be the last chance to do so in Dublin. ... The land stretches west from Avery Road and Route 33, with Post Road on the north and Shier-Rings on the south, stopping at what essentially is Dublin's final frontier: the limits of its water and sewer service under agreements with Columbus.
( . . . )
The plan calls for three phases: The first is to realign Eiterman Road and construct seven buildings with 618,000 square feet of space and two parking garages totaling 2,550 spaces along the site's northern tier.  A second phase could add six more buildings with 515,000 square feet along the main street, plus two more garages.  The third phase calls for 922,000 additional square feet in an unspecified number of buildings in the site's southwestern corner, plus 3,600 more garage parking spaces.  In all, 2.25 million square feet of building space and room for 7,700 cars, on about 86 acres.
