80 on the Commons (formerly Two25 Commons) builds on NBBJ’s and Kaufman Development’s previous success — on the mixed-use development 250 High — to bring expanded high-quality office and residential space to downtown Columbus.

80 on the Commons completes the final phase of development around the Columbus Commons, a landmark public square in Columbus, Ohio, which replaced a derelict shopping mall and accelerated downtown’s transition into a live-work-environment. The 12-story mixed-use building will include ground-floor retail and restaurant space, five floors of office space, six residential floors housing 121 apartment units — including micro-units of 400 square feet — and amenity and event space.

The building will capitalize on its prime location on the perimeter of an urban park by incorporating a public landscape that extends into the Columbus Commons. In addition, the seventh floor will be devoted to indoor and outdoor amenities, shared by residents and office workers alike, overlooking the park.
