CASTO Anticipates Summer 2009 Opening of Albany Park, New Mixed-Use Development in Columbus, Ohio
Thursday, February 28, 2008
Columbus, Ohio — CASTO, one of the country’s leading real estate organizations, announces that the first phase of Albany Park, which will include nearly 300,000 square feet of retail and more than 27 acres of outparcels for restaurant and service tenants, is targeted to open next summer. Infrastructure work will begin soon at the site that is located at State Route 161/Dublin-Granville Road and Hamilton Road. This initial phase will contain two anchors of more than 100,000 square feet each, one of which recently closed on the purchase of its site adjacent to the center. CASTO will also be developing several office sites and a blend of residential uses adjacent to the new retail. “Albany Park’s outstanding location on the gateway to New Albany coupled with the high architectural aesthetic and impressive demographics will make it an exciting shopping alternative for Columbus consumers,” said Don M. Casto, III, partner at CASTO. ABOUT ALBANY PARK Albany Park is a master-planned community located in a high growth area with major thoroughfares offering easy access to downtown Columbus, Port Columbus International Airport and many major employers.
