VanTrust continues its string of success with new tenants

Columbus, Ohio – April 6, 2021 –VanTrust Real Estate, LLC is pleased to announce two leases at its new project in New Albany. Innovation I, a 253,000 square foot building, was completed in December 2020. 158,000 square feet was immediately leased to Voyant Beauty, a supplier of beauty and personal care products.
