Opus Business Center at Rickenbacker Features High-Quality Industrial Facilities

Opus Business Center at Rickenbacker is part of a larger business center located in Groveport, Ohio, offering industrial space throughout eight buildings.

The state-of-the-art distribution center is located in a Community Reinvestment Area, which allows for 100% abatement of real estate taxes on the building improvements for a period of 15 years. The site is also located in an enterprise zone in which policies are implemented to encourage economic growth and development.

Recognizing low vacancy rates and steady demand for large blocks of modern bulk industrial space, Opus Development Company developed a new 484,216-square-foot speculative building. Building 8 is located on 28.74 acres and features:
  • parking for 200 cars and 50 trucks with room for expansion,
  • 32-foot clear height and
  • 2,500 square feet of office space.

Building 8 was completed in December 2014.

  • seven-foot unreinforced floors,
  • 139 car parking spaces (expandable to 281 spaces) and
