On Monday, Aug. 28, Hilliard City Council will vote on an incentive for the proposed Hilliard Office Suites development project. If approved, Hilliard Office Suites will invest $8.2 million at the northwest corner of Britton Parkway and Davidson Road. The developer, Envoy, estimates 150 full-time jobs will be created in Hilliard through this project.

Hilliard Office Suites is proposing the construction of a 36,000 square foot development with modern, class-A office suites and a co-working shared resources space for start-up companies and small businesses to utilize that will attract and retain talent and jobs in the community. The Elevate Office Suites network includes seven locations in Indiana and three in Texas. The Hilliard location will be the second property in Ohio.

Elevate Office Suites offer high-energy, low overhead, all-inclusive office options that are perfect for entrepreneurs and small businesses,” said Scott Baldwin, Principal and Owner of Elevate Office. “The growth in Hilliard is exciting, and we are looking forward to being a part of the City’s economic ecosystem. Elevate Hilliard will foster a sense of community among small business owners and entrepreneurs, resulting in jobs, increased income taxes for the City, and continued momentum for economic development in the area.”

The City of Hilliard has offered the developer a real property tax exemption incentive to help offset recurring costs, potentially increasing the long-term viability of the project.

“I’m very excited that Elevate Office is considering Hilliard for its new location” said David Meadows, Economic Development Director for the City of Hilliard. “These office suites will provide the space and resources needed for small businesses and entrepreneurs to grow their ideas and create jobs in our community.”

Pending City Council and Planning and Zoning Commission approval, the project is expected to break ground in November of 2017 with a completion date of December 2018.
