Columbus Business First: Whitehall to purchase ex-Oasis campus as part of park redevelopment

The Whitehall Community Improvement Corp. has put the former Oasis Corp. water cooler and water fountain manufacturing and distribution complex at 4800 Poth Road in contract as part of a plan to have Columbus developers Mark W. Taggart Co. and Fed One Dublin redevelop 30 acres of the 35-acre property.

The project also calls for about 10,000 square feet of commercial development at Poth and Hamilton roads for a medical office building or single-tenant retailer and the eventual construction of a 225,000-square-foot industrial building on land north of the shuttered manufacturing building.
