Pizzuti Breaks Ground on Latest Development in Rickenbacker West Industrial Center

The Pizzuti Companies and their partner, PCCP, LCC, have broken ground on two speculative buildings totaling over 500,000 square feet in the firm’s master-planned Rickenbacker West Industrial Center in Columbus, Ohio.

Work is in progress on Rickenbacker West II, a 277,692 square foot building and Rickenbacker III, a 261,402 square foot building. Designed for both single- and multi-tenant users, the buildings are divisible to meet each user’s specific needs.

Situated on a 40-acre site, the buildings feature 32-foot clear heights, LED lighting, a 15-year, 100 percent tax abatement, and direct access from Alum Creek Drive. Rickenbacker West is located adjacent to Pizzuti’s master planned CreekSide Industrial Center and is minutes from Rickenbacker International Airport.

“We look forward to completing another project in one of Columbus’ key industrial distribution corridors,” said Jim Miller, Executive Vice President of Development for The Pizzuti Companies. “With easy access to highways, excellent infrastructure, and an attractive park-like setting, the Rickenbacker market continues to be an attractive distribution center for clients of all sizes.”

Since 1998, Pizzuti has developed more than 12 million square feet of build-to-suit and speculative warehouse space in the Rickenbacker submarket. Spanning approximately 500 acres, CreekSide and Rickenbacker West are now fully developed.

Rickenbacker West includes a 1.6 million square foot build-to-suit for Whirlpool; an 800,000 square foot Quaker Distribution Center; a 600,000 square foot PetSmart Distribution Center; and a 300,000 square foot ANDA Pharmaceutical facility. CreekSide projects have ranged in size from a 29,374 square foot facility for VSP to a 766,795 square foot, build-to-suit distribution center for Continental Tire.

Both Rickenbacker West II and III are scheduled for completion Q2 2020.
