A new food destination from Cameron Mitchell Restaurants will open in the city’s emerging Italian Village neighborhood by summer 2021. The historic Budd Dairy building will be transformed into the Budd Dairy Food Hall, a restaurant incubator offering spaces for entrepreneurial, chef-driven concepts, and will also include a live-performance stage, multiple bars, interactive games, private event space and a rooftop deck.
MLS Champions, Columbus Crew SC, will have a new home in downtown’s Arena District by July 2021. The 20,000-seat stadium will be part of a larger mixed-use development behind Huntington Park. Unique features will include a continuous wraparound roof, a 360-degree concourse, event space, a 3,400-capacity standing section - along with two patio decks and a “Nordecke Beer Garden” (a first for Major League Soccer) - and a 5,000-square-foot brew hall that will also be open on non-match days. This will bring all of Columbus’ professional sports teams within a few block radius of one another.
