COLUMBUS—On Monday evening, Nationwide Realty Investors unveiled its latest development plan for Grandview Yard in a meeting with members of Grandview Heights City Council. Located on the former Big Bear warehouse site and encompassing nearly 100 acres, Grandview Yard will eventually include up to 2-million-square-feet of commercial space. The new plans call for a 500,000-square-foot campus for Columbus-based Nationwide Mutual Insurance Co. that would support more than 3,000 employees, a 135-room hotel and a 13,000-square-foot conference center.

“We’re pleased to have had the opportunity to present our plans to City Council and Grandview Heights,” says NRI president and chief operating officer Brian J. Ellis. “This is a great community and the proposed projects represent a tremendous opportunity for Nationwide and its associates, Grandview Heights and Grandview Yard.”
