Columbus, Ohio – Smith Lane Properties, a private real estate investment and development firm focusing on developing Class A projects in prime industrial markets throughout the United States, announced today that it is investing more than $26 million into a new industrial facility in Madison County. The company is the latest grant recipient from JobsOhio’s Ohio Site Inventory Program (OSIP), which focuses on speculative site and building development projects.

Headquartered in Dayton, NJ, Smith Lane Properties will develop a 292,500 square foot building in London, Ohio focusing on a multi-tenant configuration with individual suites ranging from 50,000-60,000 square feet. With the help of a grant from OSIP, the company has begun construction, with an anticipated completion date around the end of 2023 or first quarter of 2024.

“Central Ohio remains one of the most resilient markets in the country, and we’re proud to make our first investment into the region at an integral time for commercial real estate,” said Brian Getzler, Managing Partner for Smith Lane Properties. “We’re excited to come in and build a facility from the ground up that contributes to Madison County’s vibrant economy.”

Smith Lane Properties’ arrival comes at a time where Madison County’s industrial infrastructure has experienced significant growth. The new facility follows a series of investments from companies like Amazon, Target and Home Depot that are increasing their distribution footprint in the area.

“We’re excited to welcome Smith Lane Properties to the Region, especially due to the increased demand for a multi-use, industrial facility driven by our thriving business community,” said David Kell, Assistant County Administrator for Madison County. “This investment will expand employment opportunities and position our business community for sustained growth.”

“The Columbus Region has a long history of serving its counties and business communities by prioritizing growth and economic diversification,” said J.P. Nauseef, JobsOhio president and CEO. “The partnership between Smith Lane Properties and JobsOhio through the new speculative building will continue to make the Region attractive for future investments and expand our lively talent base.”
