The Economic and Community Development Institute in Columbus is scheduled to move into new offices Oct. 1. ECDI will trade its current offices at 475 E. Mound St. for a renovated two-story schoolhouse at 1655 Old Leonard Ave.

    Nice addition for North Central (also home to the Idea Foundry). It’s getting to be slightly less of a no man’s land.

    I love it. This is exactly what we need. Hoping to start my own food biz one day. Good to know this will be around. :)

    I’m really looking forward to them getting this space opened up. Maybe we can schedule a CU/Metropreneur open house tour. ;)
