Quarry Trails will be a community among a natural, unmanicured Metro Park. The Metro Park will be the defining feature and amenity for residents and guests of the development. This unique arrangement is accomplished by way of a partnership formed between Thrive Companies and the Columbus and Franklin County Metro Parks. Quarry Trails will gain an amenity, and the Metro Park will receive access and utilities to the park; critical, and expensive infrastructure.
Altogether, the Quarry Trails site is 607 acres. The mixed-use development will occur on an 80-acre parcel located on the Southern edge of the site. Metro Parks owns 180-acres directly West and North from the Thrive Companies’ land. The new Metro Park will be home to high-end amenities that will rival any comparable Metro Park in the Midwest. Thrive Companies 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 Thrive Companies with additional development opportunity.
