Marking its continued growth, Art.com Inc. has expanded its U.S. distribution facility in Lockbourne, Ohio.
Cushman & Wakefield brokered the lease expansion and renewal for the California-based online art retailer, which has operated at 4000 Creekside Parkway for 10 years and now occupies a total of 175,000 square feet there.
Art.com Inc. is the world’s leading online destination for experiencing and buying high-quality wall art.
“Time-to-market has always been important for Art.com, and the Columbus area continues to serve as an efficient distribution hub,” Marc Ward of the firm’s Oakland, California office who represented Art.com, noted. “The opportunity to grow in place with a prominent, responsive landlord was an attractive option.”
Ward, who has worked with Art.com for 11 years, also arranged the company’s original, 150,000-square-foot lease in Lockbourne. Nationwide, he has been involved in 15 lease transactions for his client, totaling approximately 800,000 square feet.
Ward orchestrated the long-term transaction in Lockbourne for Art.com with Rob Myer of the company’s Columbus, Ohio, office. Exeter Property Group owns 4000 Creekside Parkway and was represented by Steve Stein.
