Dublin taketh, and now Dublin giveth away eminent domain land

Business First of Columbus - by Brian R. Ball

Monday, May 3, 2010

 

An indefinite delay in the construction of an upgraded interchange at Post Road and Route 33 has prompted the city of Dublin to postpone its acquisition of private property it will need to complete the project.  The city on April 21 filed notices of abandonment in three eminent domain lawsuits awaiting trial in Union and Franklin counties.  Those notices ask the landowners to return a combined $6 million the city had paid for the properties ahead of jury trials to determine how much more, if any, the owners would receive for the public taking of their land.

 

Dublin paid landowners Post Hylands Co., John Wirchanski and Dennis Hoffer for the land at Dublin’s appraised value in late 2008, according to the lawsuits.  Wirchanski, owner of the Hall’s Corner farm next to the existing interchange, received $6.88 million for nearly 19.8 acres.  According to a court filing, Dublin wants to temporarily abandon acquisition of about 15.1 acres of Wirchanski’s land and will seek repayment of $5.25 million.  Post Hylands has been asked to return $685,670, while Hoffer has been asked to return $82,430, according to filings.

 

Wirchanski attorney Michael Braunstein called Dublin’s legal maneuvering “nonsense” ahead of an expected trial in a few months.  He argued the city effectively took possession of the property when it cut down trees, stored drainage pipes and dug ditches in connection with other improvements in the area.  “Once they’ve entered the land and done work, it’s too late for them to abandon” an eminent domain proceeding, said Braunstein, a Goldman & Braunstein LLP partner.

Dublin loses bid to get refund for land taken for Rt. 33 interchange

City was trying to give back property, get $5 million

Tuesday,  May 4, 2010 - 2:53 AM

By Holly Zachariah, THE COLUMBUS DISPATCH

 

The poor economy has caused Dublin to delay its lofty plan for a new, $50 million interchange at Rt. 33 and Post Road.  And with the plan scuttled for the foreseeable future, Dublin had asked a Union County judge to force a landowner to return more than $5 million the city paid him when it took part of his property through eminent domain for the interchange project.

 

John Wirchanski, whose family has owned the land known as Hall's Corner for centuries, had three tracts totaling nearly 20 acres taken.  The city is using one parcel of 4.65 acres and doesn't want its $1.63 million returned for that.  But Dublin says it now has no use for the other two parcels and wants its $5.25 million back.

 

Wirchanski argued that the city can't abandon the project when crews already have dug up some of the property and taken down a barn and more than 30 mature trees.  Union County Common Pleas Judge Don Fraser sided with him, ruling late yesterday afternoon that Dublin has taken possession of Wirchanski's land and that he will not have to repay the city.

Dublin stuck with land for stalled Route 33 project

Business First of Columbus - by Matt Burns

Tuesday, May 4, 2010

 

The city of Dublin has suffered a major blow in its effort to postpone the acquisition of private property for an idled interchange upgrade at Post Road and Route 33.  Dublin City Manager Terry Foegler told Columbus Business First a Union County judge this week threw out the city’s request to recover about $5.25 million from landowner John Wirchanski and abandon the acquisition of 15.1 acres he originally owned.  The city in late 2008 paid Wirchanski, owner of the Hall’s Corner farm next to the existing interchange, nearly $6.9 million for almost 20 acres as it prepared for the upgrade.

 

Since then, dwindling income tax receipts and stalled development in the area have prompted Dublin officials to sideline plans to expand the intersection’s capacity.  Land acquisitions, right-of-way grants, engineering plans and the construction tab for the project were expected to top $50 million.

Bike path enters final design stage

Tuesday, June 1, 2010 - 5:47 PM

By JENNIFER NOBLIT, ThisWeek Staff Writer

 

A bike path that would provide access to Historic Dublin from the south via Dublin Road has reached the final design phase.  Dublin City Council members received an update last week on a multi-use path that will be installed on the west side of Dublin Road from Tuttle Road to Karrer Place.  Council gave staff permission to proceed with final plans.

 

According to civil engineer Michael Sweder, the final design of the path will be finished this year, with land acquisition planned for next year and construction scheduled for 2012.  "This path is a great connection to Historic Dublin," he said, adding that the plan is supported by the city's Bicycle Advisory Task Force.

Dublin: City pays $1.5 million for Bright Rd. parkland

Thursday, September 30, 2010

By Jennifer Noblit, ThisWeek Staff Writer

 

Dublin will spend $1.5 million for 21 acres known as the Holder property at 4279 Bright Rd., which will become a park.  The deal approved by the City Council last week concludes what parks director Fred Hahn said was a deal in the works for 17 years.  Washington Township contributed $460,000 to the purchase.

 

Hahn said the park will be planned next year, but it will be passive space and will include educational elements.

Bicentennial art plans near completion

Wednesday, December 15, 2010 - 12:00 PM

By JENNIFER NOBLIT

ThisWeek Community Newspapers

 

Dublin's bicentennial public art will be constructed after the city wraps up celebrating the milestone.  Dublin City Council members last week got an update on the bicentennial public artwork bound for the Karrer Barn property at 225 S. High St., and on-site construction is slated for the spring.

 

Rhode Island-based artist Brower Hatcher was chosen last February to craft the $150,000 public artwork to commemorate Dublin's bicentennial.  The project, which will consist of a steel framework blacksmith shop on a limestone foundation, was put on hold after residents objected to elements of the artwork, including the location, color and size.

Columbus Business First - April 5, 2011, 3:54pm EDT

 

Alcatel-Lucent officially is moving to Dublin, keeping the telecommunications-equipment maker in Central Ohio.  Duke Realty Corp. said Tuesday the company has leased more than 120,000 square feet in its Atrium II complex at 5455-5475 Rings Road in the suburb, where nearly 600 workers will move from offices on East Broad Street in Columbus.

 

The Atrium II complex has 291,445 square feet of space in two, five-story towers connected by a five-story atrium.

More about Dublin's Bicentennial art project from today's Dispatch...

 

Residents in revolt over artwork

Dublin subdivision requesting change in latest project

Saturday,  February 20, 2010 - 3:02 AM

By Holly Zachariah, The Columbus Dispatch

 

Some of the people who might have to look at the public art project planned for an entrance to their Dublin neighborhood intend to tell the City Council on Monday night "not so fast and not here."  The council is expected to vote Monday on whether to approve a $150,000 contract with a Rhode Island artist to build a stone-and-steel sculpture on a piece of city land known as the Karrer property.

 

The piece will be a modern take on an old blacksmith's shop.  It is to have a 13-foot-square stone base and be 16 feet high.  It is to include a stone wheelwright table, and the outside is to be covered with climbing vines.  A selection committee put together by the Dublin Arts Council chose the design this month for the city's bicentennial celebration this year.

 

Below is a rendering of the art project and a location map.

Dublin OKs public art despite complaints

Some residents suggest court fight

Tuesday,  February 23, 2010 - 2:47 AM

By Holly Zachariah

THE COLUMBUS DISPATCH 

 

Despite opposition from the surrounding neighborhood, the Dublin City Council voted last night to approve a piece of public art on city-owned, historic land.

 

By a 5-2 vote, the council authorized a $150,000 contract with Providence, R.I., artist Brower Hatcher for his art: a modern take on an old blacksmith's shop.  It is to celebrate Dublin's bicentennial this year.

 

Council members Michael Keenan and Richard Gerber voted against the contract, saying the site-selection process didn't do enough to take into consideration the character and protection of the Historic District.

Nestle looks to acquire 10 acres in Dublin tech park

By Rick Rouan, Staff Reporter - Columbus Business First

December 2, 2011, 6:00am EST

 

Nestle USA Inc. is considering securing more room in Dublin’s technology park.

 

The food giant is negotiating with the city to buy about 10 acres next to its 45,000-square-foot quality assurance center on Eiterman Road.  The deal would include 4.7 acres the city owns nearby, plus about 5 acres from a 17.7-acre parcel that Dublin would buy from Ohio State University.

Dublin launching TechDEC for startups wanting data center access

By Rick Rouan, Staff Reporter - Columbus Business First

Updated: December 13, 2011, 4:17pm EST

 

The city of Dublin is adding a companion to the Dublin Entrepreneurial Center, offering 1,000 square feet of leased training space next to a new data center.

 

Dublin City Council has agreed to lease a boardroom and two conference rooms at 565 Metro Place South, the site of a data center being established by Metro Data Center LLC, for one year at a cost of $25,000.  The space will serve as an information technology-focused center called TechDEC that will supplement the Dublin Entrepreneurial Center, which was established in 2009 at 7003 Post Road.

There also was some big development news for Dublin outside the Bridge Street Corridor Planning Area this week.  About two miles west of that planning area, Ohio University purchased approximately 15 acres of land containing two office buildings near the intersection of Rt. 33 and Post Road.  Buckeye Check Cashing and the Dublin Entrepreneurial Center are currently in the existing three and four-story buildings at 7001 & 7003 Post Road totaling approximately 100,000 sq. ft. purchased along with the 15 acre property.

 

Apparently this development is many years in the making - but only came together in recent months.  The City of Dublin owns almost 100 acres surrounding the OU-purchased land on Post Road.  Dublin amassed the land with long-range plans to attract research and/or biomedical projects.  Last year, the Columbus-based Osteopathic Heritage Foundations pledged $105 million over 16 years to Ohio University for the purpose of creating its own medical college and to support expanded research and treatment of diabetes.  Officials said the first $29 million of the gift would be used to buy land, build a medical college in central Ohio and develop its campus, to be called the Ohio University Heritage College of Osteopathic Medicine.

 

As part of the Ohio University land purchase, the City of Dublin will give the university two tracts surrounding it - totaling about 71 acres.  As part of an agreement that will going to Dublin's City Council, both OU and Dublin would have a say in deciding how that land is developed and would share in the infrastructure development costs.  This land is noted as Subarea One and Subarea Two in the site map shown below.

 

Dublin would keep about 25 acres fronting the Rt. 33 highway, with an eye toward development that would support the medical college.  Both Dublin and OU officials seemed to think this would include a hotel/conference center in that location, with work on a hotel beginning as soon as 2014.  This land is noted as Subarea Three in the site map below.

 

OU officials say the medical college is expected to open with at least 50 students in fall 2014.  The university’s plans for the land surrounding the new medical college would include a day-care center, some residential housing, arts and cultural facilities and research laboratories by 2017.  Below, in addition to the site map of the land tracts, are three recent articles from the Columbus Dispatch and Columbus Business First about the new Ohio University medical college to be located in Dublin.

Now people will really start thinking OU is in Columbus. I remember when the signs on I-70 at 256 went up for OU-Pickerington and OU-Lancaster they just said "Ohio University Next Exit" and people from outside the area started telling me they thought it was really neat that both OU and Ohio State were in Columbus. I think they changed the signs later.

Well, not all development news in Dublin revolves around its historic downtown or the Bridge Street Corridor Plan.  There is still some conventional suburban-type development left to finish - like the eighth and final phase of Emerald Parkway located north of I-270 in the city. 

 

According to the below linked ThisWeekNews article, Emerald Parkway been in the works for 18 years.  This final phase will connect Riverside Drive to Sawmill Parkway and is expected to be completed in November 2014.  Once completed, Emerald Parkway would connect Tuttle Crossing Boulevard to the south with Sawmill Road to the north.  The final stretch of Emerald Parkway will run about a mile and open up land that has been marked for office space in Dublin's land use plan.

Riviera plan fails to clear Dublin P&Z, despite revisions

The plan to convert Dublin's Riviera Golf Club into a housing development failed to win the support of the city's Planning & Zoning Commission on Thursday night.

 

Commissioners unanimously voted to table the rezoning application by developer Davidson Phillips Inc. after noting a series of objections to the plan, and after hearing concerns from many nearby residents during a three hour-plus meeting at Dublin City Hall.

Buyer wins Corazon auction with $3.5 million bid

By Brian R. Ball, Columbus Business First

Updated: June 4, 2015, 12:34pm EDT

 

An out-of-town investment group with local partners has won the bidding for the Corazon fitness and event venue.  But the identity of the group bidding the reserve price of $3.5 million may remain a mystery until the closing next month.  That’s the word from Savage Real Estate broker Bryan Savage, who marketed the 58,000-square-foot property ahead of the Auction.com online bidding this week.

 

Savage told me he showed the property 30 times but just seven investment groups paid the refundable $10,000 deposit to bid on the property.  Those interested included investment groups from New York City, Chicago, Dubai and China.

 

The City of Dublin was not among the bidders despite Corazon’s potential as a second recreation center.  Savage said the auction format blocked any interest Dublin may have had because of the need to get pre-approval from city council and the tight closing deadline.  "They could not have moved quickly enough,” he said.

Dublin set to buy vacant land from Nationwide at significant discount

By Evan Weese, Staff Reporter- Columbus Business First

January 25, 2016, 1:41pm EST

 

Dublin plans to acquire vacant land next to Nationwide Mutual Insurance Co.’s offices on Rings Road at a price several million dollars below what the insurer paid for it, eyeing the 23.7-acre site for future development.  Dublin City Council on Monday evening is scheduled to consider a $2 million deal for the property with the Columbus insurance company’s Nationwide Realty Investors Ltd. affiliate, according to a copy of the ordinance.

 

The property, at the northwest corner of Frantz and Rings roads, across from the city’s Field of Corn installation, is considered key to the competitiveness of Dublin’s legacy office parks. ... No specific development plans have been put forth.

 

Nationwide acquired the land in 2004 with plans to resell it or find a partner to jointly develop it.  The company paid $7.44 million. ... Most of the Nationwide's workers from the 401,500-square-foot building it leases at 5100 Rings Road next door will be relocating to Grandview Yard as part of an ongoing centralization of operations near downtown Columbus.

Dublin considering buying 74-acre site to bank for future development

By Evan Weese, Staff Reporter - Columbus Business First

February 8, 2016, 5:05pm EST

 

Dublin is considering purchasing 74 acres of vacant land, having depleted its stock of shovel-ready sites for expanding businesses.  Pointing to Amazon Web Services and other recent successes using land as a development incentive, the city plans to pay $5.9 million for the land along Shier Rings Road.

 

Dublin officials say the side-by-side parcels, near Dublin Methodist Hospital and Ohio University’s medical school, are ripe for research and development facilities or health-related uses.

The previous Dublin development thread has been divided into two threads.

 

This one now encompasses any development projects in Dublin that are not within the Bridge Street District planning area.  The Bridge Street District planning area now its own separate thread at http://www.urbanohio.com/forum2/index.php/topic,4391.msg798088.html#msg798088.

 

The map below shows the City of Dublin in green and the Bridge Street District in black.  Typical projects outside the Bridge Street District that would be included in this Dublin thread would be office projects along I-270, development projects along Rt. 33 and Muirfield Village type residential projects:

Developer buys 46 acres of vacant land in Dublin, office projects likely

By Evan Weese, Staff Reporter - Columbus Business First

Updated: March 29, 2016, 3:19pm EDT

 

VanTrust Real Estate LLC has acquired 46.4 acres of vacant land in Dublin, with future development plans likely to include at least an office component.  The Kansas City, Missouri-based developer paid $425,000 for each of three sites - nearly $1.3 million total - straddling Interstate 270 north of Rings Road after “preliminary discussions” with potential tenants, but does not yet have specifics worked out, Executive Vice President Andy Weeks said.

( . . . )

Two of the sites are zoned to allow for the city’s input: A 16-acre parcel abutting I-270 and a 16-acre parcel to the west, along Emerald Parkway, are zoned as Planned Unit Development.  That means Dublin’s Planning and Zoning Commission will discuss a general proposal with VanTrust and determine whether it is appropriate for the site and consistent with the community plan.  A 14.4-acre parcel along Blazer Parkway east of Ashland Chemical is zoned for office, lab or research uses.

Dublin office building being vacated by Nationwide lands new tenant bringing 2,000 employees

A 401,000-square-foot office building in Dublin that Nationwide Mutual Insurance Co. is vacating as it consolidates downtown and at Grandview Yard won't stay empty for long.

 

Cardinal Health Inc. will move some 2,000 employees and contractors into the seven-story building at 5100 Rings Road starting in 2018, the Dublin-based health-care distributor confirmed to Columbus Business First.  The company will consolidate employees from four other Dublin office buildings in waves that will take three to four years.

Cardinal Health jumps at the chance to unite scattered workers in Dublin

By Carrie Ghose, Staff Reporter - Columbus Business First

April 5, 2016, 12:32pm EDT

 

Cardinal Health Inc. has added more than 800 jobs in Central Ohio since mid-2013 – hitting 5,000 employees in the region at the end of 2015.  It's been running out of places to put them.

 

Dublin's largest employer found a solution in the pending vacancy of a 401,000-square-foot, seven-story office building less than 2 miles from its corporate headquarters on Emerald Parkway.  Nationwide Mutual Insurance Co. is moving employees to a new campus in Grandview Yard when its lease expires next April at 5100 Rings Road.  The Class A building is one of the 20 largest in Central Ohio.

 

Cardinal confirmed Monday it will move 2,000 workers into the 5100 Rings Road building starting in early 2018.  It's consolidating staff now spread among four different Dublin office buildings, all dotting a 2-mile stretch of Interstate 270 through the suburb.  They'll move in waves over three years, leaving vacancies in 6600 Kilgour Place, 6000 Parkwood Place, 5515 Parkcenter Circle and 5545 Rings Road.

A California-based operator of indoor trampoline parks has chosen a site in Dublin for its next facility.  Rockin’ Jump will build the 29,000-square-foot facility at the southeast corner of Emerald Parkway and Shier Rings Road.  The 2.3-acre vacant site is across Shier Rings Road from Stanley Steemer's corporate headquarters, adjacent to the Corporate Park of Dublin office park.  (At 29,000 square feet, it's about the size of a small supermarket.)

 

Based in the San Francisco area, Rockin' Jump operates about 30 parks, mostly in the U.S. ...  With plans recently approved by Dublin’s Planning and Zoning Commission, the facility expects to break ground this summer and open early next year.  The two-story facility – with a mezzanine to watch jumpers from above – will take eight to 12 months to build.  A project cost was not disclosed.
