North Market’s expansion project in Dublin, Ohio continues to gain momentum. Following up after the recent announcement regarding plans to open a second location at Bridge Park, North Market is pleased to announce the site’s name, brand identity, and the appointment of a Director of Operations & Leasing for the new site.
After undergoing a formal naming and branding process with local firms VENN Growth Collective and Holden Ellis, North Market has determined the new public market will be dubbed North Market Bridge Park.
“We chose the name after reviewing hundreds of options,” said Wolfe. “We selected this name because we wanted to simultaneously honor the iconic, original North Market and the experience we are creating at the new Market through a mix of some of the best merchants from our flagship location as well as new merchants who will be exclusive to the new site. We also wanted to be clear about its location and to leverage the excitement over the world-class community being built in the City of Dublin.”
In addition to the new name, North Market unveiled North Market Bridge Park’s logo. The identity is based upon the current North Market logo and employs the beloved “Rooster” and market font that has been used historically and which graces the exterior of the downtown location. The new identity system features a family of colors and secondary descriptors to differentiate the locations. North Market Bridge Park includes the logo of Bridge Park, and the “Rooster” sits on a Bridge Park blue background.
“By opening the second true public market in Central Ohio, North Market intends to continue its 143-year mission to offer fresh foods including produce, meat and fish, poultry and game, and dairy,” said Wolfe. “Additional items will include flowers and a healthy mix of bakery, confections, gifts, beer, wine, spirits, and prepared foods.”
North Market is also pleased to announce Molly Harris has been appointed Director of Operations & Leasing. Harris is the first staff member hired who will work exclusively with North Market Bridge Park.
Harris brings extensive property management, leasing, and marketing experience to the North Market team. Most recently, Harris worked as Property Manager at RL Property Management in Columbus. Prior to that, Harris worked for Simon Property Group in mall marketing at The Mall at Tuttle Crossing.
In her new role, Harris will recruit North Market Bridge Park merchants, act as leasing agent, communicate with merchants and provide operational and technical guidance, as well as oversee the facility itself.
North Market Bridge Park is currently reviewing merchant applications. North Market Bridge Park’s merchant mix will be announced in the coming weeks as the selections are finalized.
