Xander on State evokes company CEO Doug Borror’s Scottish heritage
Borror’s development at 265 E. State Street in the Discovery District has an official name: Xander on State.
Xander on State is Borror’s first development in the rapidly evolving Discovery District in Downtown Columbus. The six-story, mixed-use development is set to be the biggest residential and retail hub along Downtown Columbus’s eastern edge, with 221 boutique apartments and 15,000 square feet of commercial space. Borror broke ground on the development in October.
Xander on State’s name evokes the Scottish heritage of Borror CEO Doug Borror. Inspiration for the name came from Borror’s great-grandfather, Alexander MacKenzie, a carpenter who emigrated from Edinburgh to Columbus with his three daughters in 1913.
Borror is working with M+A Architects on the design, which features ground-floor office and restaurant spaces designed to engage pedestrian traffic along State Street. On the upper floors, boutique apartments will offer state-of-the-art technology, outdoor living areas, high-end finishes and unparalleled views of the downtown skyline.
Residents will enjoy a resort-style pool with a large deck, cabanas, a fire pit, putting green and outdoor bar, a state-of-the-art fitness facility, and a gathering area with fireplace, bar, pool table and indoor activities.
Located in the heart of the Discovery District, offering a perfect confluence of art, education, and commerce, Xander on State is within easy walking distance of the Columbus Metropolitan Library main branch, the Columbus Topiary Park, and other attractions. The development is part of the Discovery Special Improvement District, a coordinated effort to help property owners create and maintain a safe, vibrant, diverse, distinctive and walkable mixed-used neighborhood.
