    Kaufman jumps out of gate with pair of Columbus apartment projects
    Business First by Brian R. Ball, Staff reporter
    Date: Friday, November 25, 2011, 6:00am EST

    Columbus developer Brett Kaufman has set out on his own with two apartment projects after several years of helping lead Schottenstein Real Estate Group. His company, Kaufman Development, recently completed zoning on 37 acres on Central College Road, west of New Albany Road, in Columbus for the Gramercy, a 322-apartment complex. Construction began last month on the project, designed by Brian Kent Jones Architects and M&A Architects, with completion set for spring.

    Developers in Columbus focus on apartments near Downtown
    By Doug Caruso
    The Columbus Dispatch
    Monday February 20, 2012 5:34 AM

    Rising numbers of new-building permits and zoning applications in Columbus bode well for two things: the local economy and controversy. Development has been rebounding since the end of the recession, officials, developers and neighborhood leaders agree, although it hasn’t come close to the boom times of the 1990s and early 2000s.

    Interesting chart. While construction permits rose the last 3 years, annexations remained relatively low. The 2011 annexation includes 108 acres or so for the casino leaving 37 acres of non-casino annexations. More infill/renovation construction is a good thing in my opinion.

    Agreed, it seems clear that infill and urban redevelopment has taken a priority as opposed to simply annexing new suburban land into the city for single-family housing. Hopefully, that change will stick around and not revert back to the suburban focus.

    Yeah, it sounds like all signs are pointing toward infill and densification. Good things for the City of Columbus.

    Mayor Coleman Talks Downtown Development
    By JIM LETIZIA

    In 2002, Mayor Michael Coleman said he wanted to see 10 thousand housing units created in ten years. In this installment of WCBE’s annual end-of-the-year interview with the Mayor, Coleman talks about the various plans and why that downtown housing goal was not achieved.
