Wilson Bridge Study schematic













Wilson Bridge Road Corridor

The City of Worthington is strategically planning for future development, redevelopment and enhancements to the Wilson Bridge Road Corridor, one of the City's primary economic centers. Over the past several years, a steering committee made up of area residents, business owners, community groups and City leaders has engaged in a variety of initiatives aimed at identifying a plan for the corridor. 

The resulting Wilson Bridge Road Corridor Study recommends the need to promote the redevelopment of the Wilson Bridge Road Corridor into a mixed use area that will generate new economic growth within the City.  These recommendations are intended to foster development that strengthens land use and economic value; encourages a mix of uses; enhances livability of the area; augments pedestrian and bicycle connections; and promotes construction of high-quality buildings and public spaces that create and sustain long-term economic vitality.

350 West Wilson Bridge Road

350 w. wilson bridge
The building at 350 West Wilson Bridge Road was originally developed as part of the Officescape development on the north side of West Wilson Bridge Road, which also includes properties at 400, 450 and 500 West Wilson Bridge Road. This building, constructed in 1976, was home to notable companies such as Mettler Toledo and Corecomm. The property has been vacant for many years and the new property owner would like to completely renovate and modernize the building, while redeveloping the site to accommodate approximately 53,000 square feet of modern medical office space. The Central Ohio Urology Group intends to move its medical offices into the first floor of the building. More Information



Kilbourne Memorial Building
The historic Kilbourne Memorial Building at 752 High Street on the northeast Village Green is back to business with two new tenants. Sew to Speak fabric, knitting and sewing shop is now open in first floor space to the north and COhatch is opening co-working and makerspace facilities in the south end of the first floor and basement. Building improvements made by both businesses will complete the work necessary to make the space ready for occupancy.

The Kilbourne Memorial building initially served as the City’s first public library. The library was constructed in 1927 with a gift from Mary Deshler, the granddaughter of Worthington Founder James Kilbourne. It later served as the Worthington School Administration offices. The City of Worthington purchased the building in 2006 in order to ensure its long-term preservation. The City has invested in a number of repairs to the building. With the help of a state grant, major renovations were completed to make the building fully accessible.

The I-270/US 23/SR 315 interchange has been identified as the third most congested interchange in Central Ohio. The completion of this project is vital to the City of Worthington, as it will bring much-needed improvements designed to decrease congestion and improve traffic flow and safety of the interchange and surrounding roadways. It will also greatly improve access to the City through its northern gateway for businesses, residents and visitors to our community.
