The Arena District in Columbus, Ohio, is among the most successful redevelopment efforts in the Midwest. It was formerly an industrial area with old railroads and shuttered warehouses. Now it is a $750 mixed-use neighborhood with retail and office space, as well as housing. In its final development phase, the District will spend $250 million to add 450 units of housing and 300,000 square feet of office space in two buildings, among other things.
