Project Details

Front & Fulton is a historic redevelopment of the L. Hoster Brewery into a mixed-use project in the Brewery District of Columbus, Ohio.  The area has a history stretching nearly 200 years.  It is bounded by Interstate 70 on the north, South Pearl Street on the east, Greenlawn Avenue on the south, and the Scioto River on the west.

In the early 1800s, immigrants settled on pastures and farmlands in the area known as South Columbus. Utilizing their skills as stone masons, brewers, and other trades, these immigrants established a community that would eventually be known as German Village and the Brewery District.


The Project was originally the first brewery, City Brewery, and was opened by German immigrant Louis Hoster in 1836. Over the next three decades, five more breweries would locate in the area.  At the height of its success, there were five breweries located in the area.


German Village was added to the National Register of Historic Places on December 30, 1974, becoming the list's largest privately funded preservation district, and in 2007, was made a Preserve America Community by the White House. On November 28, 1980, its boundaries increased, and today it is one of the world's premier historic restorations.


Stage Capital Partners acquired the property in 2018 and has been working on redeveloping the property, in collaboration with McCabe Companies, into a mixed-use project that will become a destination for anyone visiting and living in the Columbus region.
