“The location of 399 Main met Children’s requirements for the neighborhoods they planned to serve,” said JR Kern, principal of Capitol Equities who represented the landlord, “and the fact that we were able to offer ample off-street parking for their staff and patients within the central business district added to its desirability.”

Nationwide Children’s Hospital has committed to a ten year term and will be occupying thirty percent of the building, which is now 100% leased. Capitol Equities has provided brokerage services for 399 East Main Street since 2002.
