Downtown Columbus Business
With Columbus being the Ohio’s capital and county seat of Franklin County, there many opportunities for government employment in Downtown Columbus with the City of Columbus, Franklin County and State of Ohio. The headquarters of various businesses including American Electric Power (AEP), Nationwide Insurance, Huntington Bank, State Auto Insurance and Wasserstrom are located in Downtown Columbus. Grant, Mount Carmel and, the newly renovated, Nationwide Children’s Hospital also have locations around Downtown.
Downtown Columbus is not as sprawling as some of the larger US cities, making it very walkable. Though Columbus does not have a metro or rail system, it does have an extensive public bus service COTA that runs continuously throughout Downtown Columbus.
In an effort to revitalize Downtown Columbus, the City initiated the 2002 Strategic Business Plan to build more downtown housing, improve the riverfront park system, attract and retain jobs. This plan brought a resurgence to Downtown, through public and private investment. As a result, businesses have been attracted to the area and residential growth has rebounded, for the first time since 1950.
The 2010 Downtown Columbus Strategic Plan builds on the success of the 2002 initiative by advancing a long-term framework for continued growth. The Columbus Downtown Office Incentive Program seeks to help stabilize, strengthen and increase job opportunities. Those buying a home or condo in Downtown Columbus are often eligible for tax incentives from the City of Columbus, in the form of tax abatements, which greatly reduce property taxes for several years.
The City of Columbus knows that a successful downtown will, in turn, create a more successful region that is both nationally and globally competitive.
