“The state of Ohio will invest $90 million in transportation improvements for the area surrounding Intel Corp.'s future campus in New Albany. A total of $66 million will fund projects on local roadways in Delaware, Franklin and Licking counties. This investment includes reconstructing roadways, improving the safety and efficiency of intersections and making sure the local roadway network has the capacity to address the demands of this rapidly growing area of Ohio, the state announced in a press release. Those projects will be executed by local governments. ‘Much like everything we do in Ohio, economic development is a team sport,’ Ohio Gov. Mike DeWine said in the press release. ‘We are committed to working together with our local government partners to make sure we’re all meeting not only the demands of today, but tomorrow as well.’”
“Rinchem Co., an Albuquerque-based chemical and gas distributor, is planning a $50 million project near the Intel Corp. site in New Albany. The company is seeking approval of a Community Reinvestment Area agreement with the city for the project at 3447 Clover Valley Road, which is just a few miles from Intel's future campus. New Albany City Council will consider the CRA agreement at its Tuesday meeting. Rinchem acquired a 29-acre parcel of land recently annexed into New Albany and located within the CRA. It intends to build a new chemical warehouse on 22 acres within the project site, according to city documents. The building will measure approximately 122,000 square feet. Construction is scheduled to begin in January 2024 and is expected to be complete in March 2025.”

The property includes the main shopping center building, which is a one-story structure that measures just over 34,000 square feet and sits on 4.3 acres, as well as a freestanding bank building that was torn down in April.”
