While there is no visible change occurring currently at the United Methodist Children's Home (UMCH), there is ongoing dialogue taking place to determine the future of the property. Recently, developer Yaromir Steiner, of Steiner + Associates, has been in conversations with UMCH representatives and Lifestyle Communities, exploring opportunities for the 37 acre site. The talks are in the preliminary stages and no proposal has been received. Steiner is also meeting with City officials, in addition to representatives from Worthington Alliance for Responsible Development (WARD) and other community members, to collect input and discuss possibilities for the property.
In the central Ohio area, Steiner is best known as the developer of Easton Town Center. He is responsible for other similar successful mixed use projects across the country and is often credited with defining and inspiring a generation of retail and mixed-use development.
