Bob Weiler Named “Rock Star” of Area Development! Monday, January 07, 2013
Bob Weiler, Chairman of The Robert Weiler Company and long-time real estate developer has made headlines for decades as he filled suburban Columbus land with projects such as the Polaris Centers of Commerce and a host of others. But 2012 was especially busy for The Robert Weiler Company. Not only has development at Polaris and the neighboring Westar area in Westerville been buzzing; Weiler also launched a major project in downtown Columbus called HighPoint on Columbus Commons.
Two buildings are under construction on High Street and will back to the former City Center Mall space now known as The Columbus Commons. The six-story building will house 301 apartments as well as 22,000 sq. ft. of retail space facing High Street. Although The Robert Weiler Company has occupied office space downtown for over 70 years, this will be their first investment venture in Downtown Columbus. Weiler says, “the timing is right for additional apartments Downtown, and this site sits right in the heart of the next hot retail area of urban Columbus.”
