Central Ohio stands to gain 1,000 new jobs from four projects that received approval for state tax incentives this morning, including an expansion by The Gap of its warehouse operations in Groveport and a consumer lender setting up its Midwest operations in Columbus.

The four projects were among seven statewide to get approval from the Ohio Tax Credit Authority.

The Gap plans to add 420,000 square feet of space to its existing 1-million-square-foot warehouse in Groveport to serve the retailer’s growing online business. The company plans to add 600 jobs.

Upstart, which was launched in the San Francisco area in 2012, plans to create 257 jobs in Columbus as it expands east.
