Downtown Columbus Retail Development

City of Columbus requested that Thoughtwell conduct a Downtown Retail Development study. To carry out the study, Thoughtwell gathered background information on the current state of downtown Columbus, interviewed local stakeholders regarding their assessments, expectations, and hopes for the downtown Columbus retail market and studied downtown retail development plans for four cities in different states to learn from their experiences and ideas.
