Big Lots New Headquarters
When Columbus-based retailer Big Lots Inc. realized it was time for a larger, modern facility to house their 800 employees, they chose the burgeoning new Hamilton Quarter development in northeast Columbus bordering New Albany. The company will fill a 300,000-square-foot complex on 25 acres of the 330-acre mixed-use development. An 860-space, 2-level parking garage and a 340-space surface parking lot will also be included. A retention pond will be located along a stream on the west side of the site.
EMH&T is working with M&A Architects and developer Daimler Group on site design and utilities. Preliminary engineering encompasses applicable zoning, grading and utility plans, survey, stormwater management, water service, and sanitary sewer service. EMH&T will also provide construction phase services as well as coordination with Columbia Gas for an existing high pressure gas line running through the site.
