Innovation is part of The New Albany Company’s DNA. Founded in 1987 by one of the world’s top business leaders and fueled by his passion and ingenuity, our real estate development company constantly challenges itself to find better ways to meet the evolving needs of residents and businesses. The result is a nationally recognized community with an abiding commitment to enriching the quality of life for residents, employees and businesses.
Friends, college classmates and business partners Les Wexner, chairman and CEO of L Brands, and Jack Kessler, a successful central Ohio developer, created The New Albany Company to spearhead the metamorphosis of New Albany. In a highly collaborative public-private partnership, The New Albany Company established a blueprint that influenced not only the physical, but also the cultural and intellectual assets of the community. Today, it continues its development efforts in a way that encourages growth and capital investment while protecting the community’s distinctive characteristics.
