In the spring of 2022, Burgess & Niple’s headquarters will return to its downtown roots with a move to The Peninsula, the City of Columbus’s latest multi-use development. The new location will mark the firm’s return to the downtown area, where its office on East Broad Street was established approximately a century ago.
Located on the Scioto Peninsula, the new development is near several Burgess & Niple (B&N) landmark projects that helped pave the way for the area’s revitalization and economic development. This includes the Discovery Bridge, Rich Street Bridge, and the West Columbus Local Flood Protection Project, also known as the Franklinton Floodwall.
“Having designed infrastructure that has helped spur economic development opportunities like The Peninsula, it is exciting for B&N to take part in that growth,” President and CEO Mark Bernhardt said. “To become part of this new development exemplifies B&N's commitment to creating stronger communities.”
The Daimler Group is leading the development of The Peninsula’s eight-story office space. B&N will occupy approximately 45,000 square feet of the 221,500-square-foot building that will feature tenant patios, views of downtown Columbus and the Scioto Mile, and easy access to planned retail, restaurants and hotels.
“We are incredibly excited to partner with Burgess & Niple and help them bring their headquarters to The Peninsula. To have a company like Burgess & Niple make a substantial commitment to our project and to our City’s downtown provides the momentum and energy to jumpstart this development in such a positive way. Their space will have panoramic views of the downtown skyline and also views of the landmark infrastructure projects that they have designed in the area. Burgess & Niple will be an outstanding addition to The Peninsula development,” Robert White, Jr., President and CEO, The Daimler Group said.
The firm’s move downtown is currently targeted for April or May of 2022.
