City of Dublin, Ohio, Dublin, OH
From suburban to urban: Transforming the Bridge Street Corridor
Bridge Street is a major commercial corridor that runs through Dublin, Ohio—a Columbus suburb of 40,000 residents and 50,000 office workers known for its high quality of life and leafy neighborhoods. Today, Bridge Street is a mix of older shopping areas, low-density office parks, and Dublin’s historic town center. Recognizing its aging community, leaders sought to position the city as one that could adapt to attract a new generation of residents and workers. Goody Clancy led development of a plan for transforming the Bridge Street Corridor into a series of higher-density, walkable neighborhoods that form a coherent new town center, ensuring a competitive future for Dublin.
- In 2011, two developers announced plans to redevelop 50-75 acres for 6 million SF in accordance with the plan and a new form-based code
- New zoning regulations officially approved by the Dublin City Council in March 2012, acting as a blueprint for future development of the corridor
- In 2013, Crawford Howing announced plans for a $300 million mixed-use development just north of Bridge Street, along the planned riverside park
