The Dispatch ran a large Sunday profile of New Albany last month.  Les Wexner, founder of The Limited (now L Brands) and local real estate developer Jack Kessler formed the New Albany Company in 1986.  Since then they have transformed the formerly small village of New Albany and its surrounding countryside into a city of over 8,000.

First, with the development of million-dollar estates.  Then, with less expensive (relative to the million-dollar estates) executive-style residential developments.  Then, with the development of a sprawling business park that winds its way through these residential developments.  The latest development in New Albany is a series of denser, more urban projects near the intersection of Market and Main Streets - the center of the historic village core. 

Below are five projects currently under construction near Market and Main in New Albany.  All are expected to be completed by the end of 2014.  Below the project list is a link to the full article at the Dispatch and a map of the developments:
 
• The $13 million Philip Heit Center for Healthy New Albany, a 55,000-square-foot hub for health and wellness programs.  The city is building it in partnership with Healthy New Albany, Ohio State University’s Wexner Medical Center and Nationwide Children’s Hospital.
 
• The $6 million Market & Main building, a 27,000-square-foot office building that will include a restaurant and retail tenants on the first floor.  It is a joint venture of the New Albany Co. and the Daimler Group, another local developer.
 
• Strait’s Farm, a 51-home, $24 million residential development designed for homeowners looking to downsize and be closer to the center of New Albany.  M/I Homes will develop the project on land purchased from the New Albany Co.
 
• A $3 million Market Street extension and roundabout at Market and Main streets, designed to spur commercial growth.
 
• A $45 million school-expansion project.

Mellow Mushroom pizza shop opened in the Market & Main Building recently built in "downtown" New Albany.  Traditional on the outside, trippy on the inside.  Photo-tour from Business First:  http://www.bizjournals.com/columbus/blog/2014/12/first-look-mellow-mushroom-s-trippy-cabin-in-the.html

Senior living chain expanding to Columbus, looking for real estate



Assisted living complexes starting construction in New Albany and Orange Township are the first foray out of Michigan for the new First & Main senior living chain, and developer Granger Group is planning more in Central Ohio.

Each with 104 units, including 44 specialized for residents with memory impairments, the 100,000-square-foot campuses are set to open in late 2016 along East Main Street in New Albany, and along Powell Road east of Route 23 near Lewis Center.

Construction to begin on ​$14M Marburn Academy in New Albany
By Brian R. Ball, Staff Reporter - Columbus Business First
Updated: Sept. 15, 2015, 12:45pm EDT


Marburn Academy has scheduled a Sept. 27 groundbreaking for a 64,000-square-foot facility for its students with learning disabilities.  The start of construction comes more than two years after the nonprofit school bought 17 acres off the 161 expressway at 9555 Johnstown Road next to the Windsor subdivision built by M/I Homes Inc.

The school will open in late 2016 after a $14 million investment in land and development costs.  At full capacity, the building will have a capacity of 350 children with learning disabilities such as dyslexia and ADHD.

The Metropreneur profiled an office remodel for On-Target Design - an interactive Web, Graphic Design and Video Production Studio located in New Albany:  http://www.themetropreneur.com/columbus/work-ontarget-designs-cool-office-remodel-new-albany/

On-Target Design found a 860 square-foot house in the historic village core of New Albany, that was built in the late-1800's but looked anything-but-historic, and renovated it into a 1500 square-foot office space.  While On-Target redid the building, the City of New Albany redid the streetscape in front with new sidewalks, curbs, street lighting and buried overhead wires.  Below is an exterior before and after:




On-Target took a less traditional renovation strategy to the interior.  They re-used license-plates from their previous office space and used re-claimed materials, such as metal roofing from an old barn in New Albany and wood from an old barn in Marion, where two of the company's founders grew up.  They also exposed the original brick walls and the original hardwood floors in the building:

It's no Carmel, IN, but...

The master-planned suburb’s primary developer New Albany Co. and frequent partner Daimler Group Inc. have tapped Kaufman Development, well versed in urban multifamily projects, for work on a 130-unit apartment community at Market and Main streets.

Driving 62 from Johnstown to Gahanna is weird. It's a very strange mix of uncool '60 ribbon development with cars up on blocks then fresh New Albany "perfection" then more cars on blocks, then Gahanna middle-of-the-roadness. It's like 62 was a warehouse district then "hipsters" turned up in their Mercedes-Benz SUVs and fixed up some parts... but not all of it.

That area is turning out pretty well.  The previously built portion of Market & Main is to the left in the below photo.  The still-under-construction Market & Main II building is to the right in the below photo:
