Columbus, Ohio (Vocus/PRWEB) February 15, 2011
CASTO, one of the country’s leading real estate organizations, today announced that Menards has purchased 20 acres of land at Columbus Corporate Center, located on East Broad Street at Rosehill Road, on the east side of Columbus.
There are an additional five acres for retail uses available for lease or sale.
As part of the project, to the north of the Menards site, the completion of Brice Road will take place, providing a connection to Reynoldsburg-New Albany Road.
“In an environment where activity has been difficult, we feel CASTO’s strong relationships and retail development expertise is what facilitated the ultimate sale of this ground to Menards, as well as the associated entitlements,” commented Don Casto, Partner at CASTO.
According to Menards, construction on their 160,000 square foot store will commence later this spring. This will be the second Menards location in Columbus. The first location, situated at Northland is scheduled to open this spring.
