The closure of the Columbus Motor Speedway in 2016 left its host, the village of Obetz, Ohio, with both a challenge and an opportunity. The village wanted to redevelop the property with a structure that would be large enough to host the home games of the Ohio Machine, a Major League Lacrosse team; as well as major events such as the popular Obetz Zucchini Festival.
With the Ohio Machine’s first game scheduled in less than a year, the village needed a very large structure built in a short period of time. To solve this problem, the village looked to Falcon Structures.
In summer 2017, Falcon Structures completed the new $15 million stadium, Fortress Obetz. Completing a structure akin to the 6,500-seat, 71,112-square-foot Fortress would normally take two years. However, Falcon Structures needed only six months to pull off the feat.
