Woodworking and wine, a few new dining choices and an office with 90 jobs are coming to New Albany.

On Thursday, developers The New Albany Co. and Daimler announced eight tenants that will move into the 47,000-square-foot Market & Main II building, starting in the fall.

The new additions are:

  • Board & Brush Creative Studio, a do-it-yourself woodworking studio for parties, events and fundraisers. The 1,600-square-foot space is expected to open in October.
  • Hayley Gallery, an art gallery that has been in New Albany for 10 years, that will relocate from its current spot to a 1,250-square-foot space in October.
  • PetPeople, a 4,200-square-foot pet food and accessories store opening in December.
  • Truluck, a 1,200-square-foot jewelry and accessories boutique that started as a pop-up and will open in December.
  • Freshii, the second Central Ohio restaurant for the Canada-based chain that specializes in healthy bowls, salads, wraps and other quick eats. It is taking 2,200 square feet and is expected to open in November.
  • Nosh Eatery & Creative Catering, which is taking a 5,000-square-foot spot and is expected to open in January.
  • Columbus Obstetricians-Gynecologists Inc., which will occupy 3,400 square feet and open in February.
  • The Wallick Companies, a developer of multi-family housing and assisted-living communities, which will move 90 employees into 18,000 square feet of offices on the project’s second floor.

“From the beginning, New Albany’s community planners envisioned a vibrant and walkable village center,” New Albany Co. President Bill Ebbing said in the release. “The addition of these new shops and eateries will give residents and business park employees even more reason to experience the Market & Main district.”

The 26,000-square-foot first phase of the Market & Main project includes restaurants Hudson 29 and Mellow Mushroom.

The village center is getting an infusion of new residents too with a 132-unit upscale apartment project from Kaufman Development under construction nearby as well.
