JLL Vice President Andy Effler, Senior Vice President Dave McKee and Managing Director Paul Tingley have represented Candid Co., in a lease transaction in downtown Columbus. The teeth-aligning company will be expanding from its office at 107 S. High St. to 33,258 square feet at 34 S. Third St. CBRE Senior Vice President Greg Thomas and Associate Brandon Ellis arranged the deal on behalf of landlord Capitol Square, bringing the historic Dispatch Building to full occupancy.

The headquarters move is scheduled to take place in the fall. Candid will join tenants such as the Ohio Chamber of Commerce, The Dispatch Printing Co. as well as Candid’s real estate division, Capitol Square Ltd.

According to Yardi Matrix data, the building features five stories and includes a total of 67,000 square feet of office space. Originally completed in 1925, the asset underwent renovations in 2003 and 2016. Last fall, CBRE Market Leader Michael Copella told Commercial Property Executive that interest in the Dispatch Building has been very strong following the completion of upgrades and especially after having attracted the Ohio Chamber of Commerce.  

The location of the Dispatch Building provides tenants with access to a number of shopping, dining and entertainment venues, including Columbus Museum of Art and Ohio Theatre. The building can be reached via Interstate 71, which is a few blocks away.
