32 Urban Development Projects Completed 2021
Once again, we’ve compiled a list of all of the development projects that we have been tracking this year. We sorted that list into categories – announced, under construction, completed and miscellaneous. It was another busy year for construction in and around Columbus, and Downtown once again led the list, with more projects wrapping up there this year than any other neighborhood. Read on below for our list of projects that were completed in 2021.
