    New Construction in American Addition Signals Neighborhood Rebirth
    By: Walker

    Ground was broken last week on four new homes in the American Addition neighborhood, signaling the start of a renovation effort being led by Homeport.

    “These revitalization efforts in American Addition are an outstanding example of the strategic use of NSP2 funds by the city,” said Homeport President and CEO Amy Klaben at the groundbreaking ceremony. “We are bringing high-quality, energy-efficient homes and ready home buyers to a neighborhood close to downtown and in the vicinity of the new STEM school.”

    Constance Ghee is happy to see the four new homes rising across the street from her Lee Avenue house. “Oh, sure. It’s going to be nice,” Ghee said. The four are to be the vanguard of more than 100 houses that Columbus officials and neighborhood leaders hope will revive a long-neglected area that is one of the oldest African-American communities in central Ohio.

    City: New homes rising in historic black neighborhood

    Drive north on Joyce Avenue, past industrial parks and over railroad tracks, and you’ll see the humble entrance to a forgotten neighborhood not far from East Fifth Avenue. You might pass it except for a small, white sign on your right-hand side. The area is tiny, and a good deal of the houses sit on large lots with the kind of trees and grasses you might see on an old farm. The narrow, quiet streets lack sidewalks, storm sewers and curbs.

    Park #17: American Addition Park – Columbus
    Sunday, July 15, 2012

    Urban boonies was the only thought that came to mind when I set foot in American Addition. After stepping off the bus at around 7 something in the AM, I was greeted by the sound of a rooster crowing. Very weird. As I walked around the neighborhood, It seemed somewhat abandoned. Not abandoned like my part of town where there are so many boarded up historic homes (1/10th, 1/20th of the buildings maybe?) with crack dealer slits cut in the wood covering the windows. It just seemed like a chunk of buildings were either never there or were never built. Something wasn’t making sense. It was not a huge subdivision, and yes it was across from a dump and there were railroad tracks to the south and west, but it seemed there was too much space, too much… nothing???

    Most of the streets in American Addition gave me the vibe of some of the neighborhoods I visited in Detroit.. very empty with alot of grown up property. I did drive through a month ago and noticed several new homes going up.

    Thanks for the props for my blog. American Addition really is a unique place in Columbus and it was really cool to stumble onto it during the course of my silly Columbus Parks Project thing. Can’t wait to see what the next year brings for the Addition folks.



    Major Infrastructure Upgrade, More Houses Planned for American Addition
    Published on April 14, 2013 9:15 am
    By: Brent Warren

    Efforts to revitalize and repopulate American Addition received a major shot in the arm earlier this month when funding for a long-planned infrastructure upgrade was approved by the Columbus City Council.

    Abigail Mack, home ownership directer for Homeport, says they are thrilled to see the project move forward. “The city’s been a really good partner,” she said, adding that Homeport’s plan to build more than 100 new houses in the neighborhood depends on the improvements being made.
