Marion, Ohio - a place for dreamers and doers

who we are

About Us.

The Henry Development Group is focused on connecting historic buildings with modern day uses while creating a vibrant community. Our team buys, restores, and leases commercial storefronts, office space, and residential loft apartments in downtown Marion.

More than just a developer or landlord, we put a lot of heart into the work we do and the people with whom we are partnering. We are focused on growing community – bringing people together in places and spaces that are inspiring, creative, and unique.

Along with our affiliate companies, made up of even more passionate people, we are reimagining the status quo and envisioning the present, and future, of the Marion that we love.

where we are

About Marion.

Downtown Marion began a marked renaissance in 2018, when our group announced “Main Street Reimagined”, a project that kicked off with the purchase of 8 vacant or underutilized buildings and plans to position that one block of South Main Street as the center for downtown dining, shopping, entertainment, and events. 

Since then, we have continued to buy, reimagine, renovate, and reposition buildings around Downtown Marion, and other business owners and small developers have joined in, creating incredible momentum! In fact, since 2018, over 50 buildings have changed hands and over 60 businesses have started or moved into the downtown! 

Keep up to date with current events, businesses, and other news by following our friends at Downtown Marion, Inc and the Marion Area Convention & Visitors Bureau. The CVB also has an events calendar, so you can see not only what’s coming up this weekend, but for any upcoming dates in order to plan your travel to come see us in Marion, Ohio!

Cole Nicolosi, Construction Project Manager

After serving in the military, Cole spent much of his career in logistics, while running a small construction company on the side. After being involved in a downtown project where his wife was launching a business, Cole decided it was time to mix his passion for construction for his passion for rebuilding our downtown and investing in his community. Through his detail-oriented approach and careful planning, Cole keeps our construction projects on track, despite the many obstacles that come with fixing up historic buildings!
