Dispatch vacating iconic Capitol Square offices (Business First)
According to sources at the paper, Dispatch staffers will move down the street to a nondescript building sold to New Media at 62 E. Broad St., between the Rhodes Tower and the KeyBank Building.
There’s no word on what will happen with the current Dispatch offices. The Wolfe family still owns that prime piece of property and the neighboring parking lot across from the Statehouse.

Sad news. Will they at least renovate 62 E Broad? Building looks a bit tired.July 9, 2015 1:58 pm at 1:58 pm #1084209
So what happens to the Dispatch sign? It’s pretty iconic and looks great in the cityscape.July 9, 2015 2:21 pm at 2:21 pm #1084210
They are looking into moving the sign to the new building.July 9, 2015 3:44 pm at 3:44 pm #1084264
Seems like that sign would be very out of place on much smaller 3 story building.July 9, 2015 4:13 pm at 4:13 pm #1084283
The sad news for the Dispatch’s employees is, who and what will be let go to allow for the downsizing of the facility’s size like that.July 9, 2015 4:18 pm at 4:18 pm #1084289
Smaller paper, smaller office.July 9, 2015 5:48 pm at 5:48 pm #1084297
Smaller font?July 10, 2015 9:06 am at 9:06 am #1084368
At least they didn’t move them to the plant near Grove City. That could have easily happened.July 10, 2015 9:07 am at 9:07 am #1084369
Maybe someone will buy the parking lot now next to the Dispatch building on 3rd… :-)July 10, 2015 9:17 am at 9:17 am #1084370
Yeah, the development prospects are awfully intriguing for that half of 3rd Street…or they would be, if someone were ambitious enough.July 10, 2015 9:42 am at 9:42 am #1084378July 10, 2015 9:44 am at 9:44 am #1084379September 8, 2015 2:35 pm at 2:35 pm #1092362

Interesting nugget here:
OhioHealth, an anchor tenant of the Continental Plaza at 180 E. Broad Street (formerly known as the Borden Building) and a major tenant in the PNC Bank Building at 155 E. Broad St., hopes to consolidate more than 2,000 nonclinical employees now located throughout central Ohio under one roof, but not necessarily Downtown.
Hopefully it’s downtown but they could just as easily choose a location by their other hospitals too. I guess we’ll find out this fall.
