Worthington Means Business

Business and Industry

From the brick-lined sidewalks of its historic downtown to the bustling redevelopment underway near a major highway interchange, the Worthington area means business. Its primary business corridors include the following:

Downtown Business District Worthington’s historic village center – and the heart of the community – can be found along High Street (US 23) near the intersection of SR 161. This beautiful setting, known by many longtime residents as “Old Worthington,” contains a vibrant mix of distinctive retail and restaurant tenants, as well as a number of small office-oriented businesses. The location is enhanced by pedestrian-friendly sidewalks, an attractive streetscape and buildings with rear-located parking. It is anchored by the four quadrants of the Village Green, Worthington’s nod to its New England pioneer roots, which hosts numerous community events and activities.

Huntley Road Area Worthington’s industrial corridor follows Huntley Road, a north-south arterial that includes dual main-line rail (CSX and Norfolk Southern railroads) and Proprietors Road on the west. This corridor, which stretches from immediately north of I-270 (Lakeview Plaza) south to SR 161, is comprised of businesses across a wide range of commercial sectors, including manufacturing, service, construction, transportation and utilities.

North High Street North of Worthington’s historic center is an area characterized by broad, green front yards, mature trees and increased setbacks. This corridor contains an array of businesses including corporate offices, retirement homes, and retail services, including banks and restaurants.

Economic Development

Wilson Bridge Road Wilson Bridge Road is Worthington’s primary commercial office corridor. This area of the city is comprised of large office facilities (both single-tenant and multi-tenant) and is home to businesses in wholesale trade and transportation, communications, utilities, financial services, insurance and real estate sectors. Following an extensive city-sponsored corridor study, this area is experiencing a major renovation and redevelopment which will attract new businesses to cater to residents and office users.

The corridor is anchored by the retail and mixed-use property at The Shops at Worthington Place. Newly renovated, The Shops at Worthington Place is a destination for casual dining, specialty shops and brand-name national retailers in an intimate, neighborhood setting. A guide to current tenants is available at http://shopworthingtonplace.com/stores-restaurants/.
