Disagreements doomed Buckingham's bid for Scioto Peninsula, city emails show

The deal between the Indianapolis company chosen to spearhead the $500 million Scioto Peninsula redevelopment, the city of Columbus and Columbus Downtown Development Corp. was falling apart long before the June announcement that the project was on hold and that Buckingham Cos. was out.

Columbus Business First reviewed hundreds of emails between the city, the CDDC and Buckingham and found that the developer began reworking initial plans soon after landing the lucrative assignment as part of a potential deal with a company to move its headquarters to the Scioto Peninsula. The reworked project, the emails show, would have first and foremost focused on that company's campus before building up the rest of the mixed-use site with the hoped-for hotels, residences and restaurants.

The article in today's Dispatch mention that the corporate headquarters (which they say is still considering the site) wanted a 'suburban like' campus per Buckingham and that is why it was scrapped. If that is the case, good! They (CDDC) also say it is not Amazon, but won't reveal who it is.
