Quarry Trails will be a neighborhood inside of a natural, unmanicured, park. The park will be the foremost defining feature and amenity of the development. This is accomplished through a partnership formed with the Columbus and Franklin County Metro Parks. While the development will gain an amenity, the Metro Park will receive the benefit of access and utilities to the park; critical, and expensive infrastructure.
Altogether, the Quarry Trails site is 607 acres. The development will occur on an 80-acre parcel comprising the southern edge of the site. Metro Parks owns 180-acres directly west and north from the Thrive’s parcel, which will be home to high-end park amenities that will rival any metro-park in the Midwest. Thrive also owns a ±250-acre parcel on the northern portion of the site. This parcel is subject to a mineral lease and will remain an active, low-intensity, quarry until the operator vacates leaving Wagenbrenner with additional development ground.
