The Sports Pavilion & Automotive Research Complex (SPARC) project was officially kicked off today on the former site of the Columbus Clippers Baseball Stadium in the southern portion of Franklinton.

The new $40 million multi-purpose development will convert this 47-acre blighted area into an automotive and technology facility centered around a half-mile paved race track and sports entertainment venue.

Today’s media event also included the announcement of a partnership formed with Midwestern Auto Group (MAG) who will be leasing 11,000 square feet of showroom space in the SPARC Technology Center building. MAG is a local dealership specializing in luxury automotive brands that include Aston Martin, Ferrari, Lamborghini and Maserati. MAG will be able to utilize the track facility for vehicle testing, driver training and promotional activities.

Additionally, Clean Fuels Ohio was announced as a second tenant taking on 3,000 square feet of space in the new facility.

We recently spoke at length with Bill Schottenstein, principal of Arshot Investment Corporation, the development firm behing the SPARC project. CLICK HERE to read our full interview with Bill and find more details about this development.

SPARC is scheduled to fully open sometime in 2014, and will create approximately 300 full and part time jobs.
