If built out exactly as planned, the empty chunk of land that surrounds COSI is about to get a whole lot more populated over the course of the next 10 years. Currently home to zero humans and a handful of migrating Canada geese, the Scioto Peninsula is slated to see it’s population jump to approximately 2,550 people in the 1,700 residential units that Indianapolis-based developer Buckingham Companies will build on the site.

To put that number in perspective:

As a whole, the City of Columbus has a population density average of 3,624 people per square mile, spread across the city’s 223 square miles. The density of 2,550 people living in 21 acres of land is the equivalent of 77,714 people per square mile — over twenty times the city’s average.

The project is slated to also include 800,000 square feet of office space, 150,000 square feet of retail space and a 150-room hotel.
