POWELL, OH – The Champion Companies is bringing more housing options to fast-growing Delaware County. With its development arm – Champion Real Estate Development – serving as general contractor, the company plans to break ground on a mixed-use site in downtown Powell in early 2018.
The site will consist of 64 one and two bedroom apartments as well as a number of retail sites with frontage along W. Powell Road. The first residential units will be available in the fall, and while tenants for the retail sites have not yet been confirmed, Champion’s Chief Investment Officer Dan Hunter expects an upscale restaurant to occupy the space with details and a formal announcement to follow.
“This is a very rare and exciting opportunity to bring the residents of Powell something that they will be proud of for years to come. We’re very excited to build a first class apartment and retail site in the heart of Powell,” said Hunter when asked about the project.
This will be Champion’s first development site of 2018 with additional project announcements coming soon.
