SPIDAWeb and IJUS to Construct a New Corporate Headquarters in Gahanna
New facility will feature four-story complex, skyline view, brewery and taproom
Gahanna, Ohio, April, 24, 2018 – In direct response to the companies’ growing number of employees, SPIDAWeb LLC and IJUS LLC are excited to announce the proposed construction of a new Corporate Headquarters, located on Science Boulevard in Gahanna, Ohio. The new office space will allow both SPIDA and IJUS the opportunity to merge their office spaces into one building and allow for further sustainable growth well into the future.
The decision to choose Gahanna was an easy one. SPIDA and IJUS and have had their Corporate Headquarters in Gahanna for over 10 years with IJUS relocating to its current facility in 2005, and SPIDA originating there in 2007.
“Relocating my two companies into a culture driven office space has been a dream for many years. The creation of this destination office space will reflect our innovation, while keeping up with our changing workforce,” commented Wil Schulze, Founder and President of IJUS and SPIDA.
The new four-story complex designed by Ford & Associates Architects, Inc. boasts a skyline view of John Glenn International airport and downtown Columbus, and will feature rooftop shared meeting and event space, as well as three floors of office space. SPIDA and IJUS will occupy two floors of office space for their creative and support staff, with opportunities for potential tenants to occupy the additional space.
Mr. Schulze contacted the City of Gahanna to identify a location for the project that would create an environment to attract and retain technical employees necessary to grow his businesses. The unique city-owned land partnership and incentives will make it financially feasible to build a new office building. The sites natural environment of Gahanna Central Park adjacent to the Golf Depot and future development opportunities made the location appealing.
“We’re excited about IJUS and SPIDAWeb’s commitment to remain and grow in Gahanna,” said Gahanna Mayor Tom Kneeland. “This project is a great example of our business retention and expansion efforts and we look forward to continuing through the next phase of due diligence on this site with the company.”
The project is scheduled to go before the City of Gahanna’s Planning Commission on Wednesday, April 25, 2018 at 7 pm for further review. Additional approvals are pending prior to the project moving forward.
Construction is targeted to begin in June 2018 and has an anticipated completion date of summer 2019. The project also includes plans for a separate building consisting of a brewery and tap room.
