Grandview Heights, OH
EMH&T continues working with Nationwide Realty Investors on the 1.5 - 2 million S.F. upscale urban community development that includes offices, 600-800 residential units, a fitness center, and retail shops. The 80-acre site runs along Goodale Boulevard, 3rd Avenue, and Olentangy River Road in Grandview Heights, Ohio. EMH&T’s primary charge with the Grandview Yard project directly corresponds to the density it provides. The major arterial roadways that run along the project corridor (Goodale, 3rd, and Olentangy) needed overall infrastructural enhancements to adequately handle the boom in traffic and pedestrian flow. The project engineers also developed new utilities, water lines, and sanitary sewer systems that tie into and utilize the areas existing utility lines. The walkable outdoor retail and community development was built in several phases with EMH&T laying the ground work for all the phases. The planning layout of the other phases was essential to the project’s success. EMH&T designed the subsequent phases with flexibility and room to grow for the variety of uses the developer chose to include.
