Beulah Park Living—a $300 million mixed-use development that will offer residential, retail and office space—will break ground on May 3, 2019. The development is situated on the former Beulah Park, a horse racing track in Grove City, Ohio that originally opened in 1923.
Serving as counsel for the development team, Taft Columbus partner Chris Connelly will provide legal guidance on the public finance side of the large-scale private development, which will also involve public parks and roads. To learn more, read The Columbus Dispatch article here (subs. req.).
