New Development Under Construction - Worthington Gateway in Worthington, Ohio

The City of Worthington in Ohio is undergoing major change at the intersection of North High Street and Wilson Bridge Road, with new developments under construction and proposed. Goodman Real Estate Services Group LLC has had a hand in the redevelopment and revitalization of this well-known destination.
Since 1972, when what was then called The Worthington Square Shopping Center opened its doors, this area has featured restaurants, retailers, and a full-service Holiday Inn hotel that served the local community and community at large.  In 2011, The Worthington Mall, as it was known locally, was redeveloped and changed to The Shops at Worthington Place. Over a dozen stores were added to The Shops at Worthington Place including Pies & Pints, Panera Bread, Orvis, Piada, and First Watch. In December 2018, demolition began on the 7-acre Holiday Inn hotel, paving the way for a new mixed-use development called Worthington Gateway which will include retail, restaurants, service industries, and office space to be developed in its place.
Fast forward to today, and Worthington Gateway is well under construction welcoming the first new tenants in spring of 2022. The Shops at Worthington Place is under proposal to redevelop a portion of the shopping center into new Class A office buildings with mixed-use retail/restaurant.
These developments have been approved by the City of Worthington to transform the area into a destination catering to the current needs of retailers, restaurants, and office tenants.
Goodman Real Estate Services Group LLC Vice President and Columbus Office Manager, Daniel Clark, and Goodman Real Estate Services Group LLC Columbus Office Sales Associate, Jessica Sonders are the listing agents for Worthington Gateway, assisting the owners in bringing quality tenants to the development. The three tenants slated to open their doors once the buildings are completed include Club Pilates, Orangetheory, and Tropical Smoothie Café. Club Pilates offers a variety of Pilates classes for any age or fitness level and will take up a 1,675 SF space. Orangetheory provides a space for fitness such as rowing, cardio, and strength training, and will enter a 3,000 SF space. Tropical Smoothie Café offers quality power food and smoothie options to customers on the go and will join Worthington Gateway in a 1,407 SF space.
