Since our single office beginning in the Columbus market in 2005, Cushman & Wakefield has grown into a world class commercial real estate firm, but one thing has remained consistent – our commitment to our clients. What separates us from our competitors is our local expertise, our level of customer service, and our attention to detail. With expanded resources in our network, we can now assist global clients with the same level of service.

The Columbus office market is producing record low vacancy rates, record high asking rental rates, and positive absorption with ample construction activity in office as well as mixed use properties. The industrial market also remains strong with abundant construction activity to satisfy escalating space needs. Developers such as Pizzuti, Van Trust, Opus Group, Prologis, and Duke have all taken active development roles in the area.
