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.

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

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.

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

Business First: Dublin to donate land for Ohio University medical campus under proposed deal

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.

By Brian R. Ball, Staff Reporter - Columbus Business First

Daimler Group Inc. is getting close to building a speculative neighborhood retail strip in the Perimeter Center development near Dublin Methodist Hospital.

Daimler Executive Vice President Paul Ghidotti told me the Columbus developer expects to break ground May 1 for the 14,300-square-foot Avery Place project after Dublin City Council approved final zoning clearances Feb. 4.

ThisWeekNews looks at some big projects Dublin has planned for 2014.  And they're not all Bridge Street Corridor related.

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.

Riviera plan fails to clear Dublin P&Z, despite revisions
By Doug Buchanan, Managing editor-digital
Columbus Business First - Nov 13, 2014, 11:19pm EST
Updated: Nov 14, 2014, 11:45am EST


The plan to convert Dublin's Riviera Golf Club into a housing development failed to win the support of the city's Planning & Zoning Commission on Thursday night.

Commissioners unanimously voted to table the rezoning application by developer Davidson Phillips Inc. after noting a series of objections to the plan, and after hearing concerns from many nearby residents during a three hour-plus meeting at Dublin City Hall.

Columbus State, Ohio University near deal on undergrad degree program in Dublin
By Carrie Ghose, Staff reporter
Columbus Business First - Nov 13, 2014, 12:33pm EST


Ohio University would extend its Dublin campus offerings to undergraduate degrees under a proposed partnership with Columbus State Community College.

Columbus State trustees on Thursday were to discuss a $3.1 million proposal to move the two-year school's current Dublin Regional Learning Center into a building under construction at the Post Road campus of OU's Heritage College of Osteopathic Medicine. ... The two schools first started negotiating this spring.  Columbus State would move out of space it leases on Shamrock Court in Dublin.
