“I wanted to thank you for all the hard work and long hours to get the amended Final Development Plan, Record Plan and associated documents completed. It’s very much appreciated. I understand it’s sometimes difficult to react to changes considering time constraints, but you guys always maintain a positive “can do” attitude. And for that, I thank you.”

Cornerstone of Centerville


Cornerstone of Centerville

Centerville, Ohio

Choice One Engineering worked with Oberer Companies to create Cornerstone of Centerville, a multi-phase development that includes a 125-acre mixed-use development accommodating retail, restaurant and hotel users as well as professional, medical, and corporate office users, and a 52-acre residential component providing 400 housing units. Current large retail tenants include Costco, Cabela’s, and Kroger.


The project required considerable coordination between the City of Centerville, Greene County, state agencies, the developer, utilities, and private stakeholders within the development. Choice One Engineering has facilitated this coordination since the beginning of the project, and continued to support the project throughout its development and construction.
