Real estate owner, developer and operator Olshan Properties broke ground on a 136-key Aloft Hotel at Easton Town Center in Columbus, Ohio. Expected to open spring 2020, the hotel will feature a 7,500-square-foot restaurant, a fitness center, a swimming pool and event and meeting space.

The Aloft hotel is owned in partnership with L Brands and The Georgetown Co. Once completed, it will be a centerpiece of a $500 million expansion underway at Easton Town Center.

The upcoming property will mark Olshan Properties’ fourth hotel at Easton, joining a Hilton, a Courtyard by Marriott and a Residence Inn by Marriott. The company owns and manages all three hotels.
