Wagenbrenner Development Inc. has scored a $3 million state grant to help redevelop the 36-acre Kaplin landfill along Dublin Road.
The Ohio Department of Development’s Clean Ohio Council approved funding for the Grandview Crossing project Friday along with 10 other brownfield sites. The 11 projects will share $19.9 million in Clean Ohio funding.
The developer in January said it expects to redevelop the property for office and retail tenants. A state press release said up to 200 multifamily units also may get built on the property.
Franklin County sponsored the developer’s application since 20 acres of the development site lie in Columbus and 16 acres are in Grandview Heights. The former quarry site later became a sanitary landfill. The unregulated landfill stopped accepting trash in 1967.
The Ohio Controlling Board, which monitors state spending, must still approve the grants.
