The Central Ohio office market remains tough, but one suburb looks poised for a big year. Dublin leads in a continuing trend of leasing activity in the suburbs. In 2023, overall absorption across the market was negative, but it was positive in the suburbs. And in the first quarter of 2024, there were more suburban move-ins than move-outs, while downtown saw negative absorption, with more space vacated than filled.”

“Among those submarkets, Dublin stands out above the rest. Over the past 12 months, demand in Dublin increased. The recently released Colliers Foresight report predicts that a large portion of leases in 2024 will be in the Dublin submarket. According to the Foresight report, 19 new tenants moved to Dublin, 47 tenants moved within Dublin and one tenant moved out of the submarket last year.


Luxury beauty and personal care, handcrafted Western wear and a sustainably minded apparel brand are among the upcoming additions to Easton Town Center.

Easton also teased an expansion of the Diamond Cellar, but offered no additional details beyond added selection and an elevated customer experience. The Diamond Cellar itself has declined to talk about what it’s doing yet. Easton Town Center is celebrating its 25th anniversary. It is home to more than 250 retail, dining and entertainment destinations.”

"’The EV hub is the starting point for our electrified future,’ Bob Nelson, executive vice president of American Honda Motor, told reporters Friday. ‘It’s where Honda associates will develop the knowledge and expertise in EV production that will be shared across Honda’s North American auto production network in coming years.’’’
