The Arena District

The Arena District encompasses Nationwide Arena, home of the Columbus Blue Jackets NHL team, and Huntington Park, home of the Clippers, AAA baseball team, as well as commercial, retail, residential, and office space. EMH&T professionals have partnered with Nationwide Realty Investors (NRI) and coordinated with the City of Columbus since the beginning of redevelopment of the former Ohio State Penitentiary site to transform this once blighted area into a major attraction for downtown Columbus. Over the years, we have provided survey, site/civil engineering, traffic engineering, rail design, stormwater solutions, and environmental services for various private and public infrastructure to support this premier entertainment district. As part of the latest addition to the Arena District, Field is home of the Columbus Crew Major League Soccer team, which opened in the summer of 2021.
