Arena District Infrastructure Design
Adjacent to downtown Columbus, the Arena District encompasses Nationwide Arena, home of the Columbus Blue Jackets NHL team and Huntington Park, home of the minor league Columbus Clippers baseball team, along with an eclectic assortment of restaurants, hotels, entertainment venues, office space, multi-family residences, and green space. For over 16 years, EMH&T has worked with Nationwide Realty Investors and coordinated with the City of Columbus to redevelop the former Ohio State Penitentiary site, transforming it into the City’s premier entertainment district. EMH&T continues to provide civil engineering design and surveying services for both the public utility and roadway network and all private buildings within the district. EMH&T created utility plans to facilitate the separation of waste and stormwater sewer flows in the project area and to extend needed public and private utility infrastructure to support the development.
