    A joint venture led by developers Robert Weiler Co. and Casto have been given the chance to redevelop the site of a former public housing complex in East Franklinton.

    The Casto/Weiler development team, which also includes Donald W. Kelley & Associates, Smoot Construction Co. and Simco Construction Co., beat out three other proposals to develop the 13 acres of surplus Columbus Metropolitan Housing Authority property off West Rich Street along the Scioto River southwest of downtown.

    Read it at the library? ;)

    I think you pretty much need a valid login to read Biz First articles. They may become readable after a few weeks as well.

    I think Franklinton would be a good place to start a fashion district. Not the Polaris kind, but more of a design-based garment district with with small design studios and storefronts that sell small-batch production items.

    The whole local thing is really taking off, and people are interested in local artisan goods

    Project Update: Orange Barrel Headquarters
    May 22, 2014 8:30 am – Brent Warren

    If you’ve driven on Interstate 670 or State Route 315 just west of Downtown recently, you may have noticed three large towers taking shape near the confluence of the Scioto and Olentangy Rivers. Construction of the new Orange Barrel Media headquarters – which broke ground last September — is back on track after progress was slowed by bad weather.

    It opened fine for me. Maybe it turns free after a while.

    Are these going to market rate or subsidized? I’m assuming the latter if CMHA is involved.

    “Hundreds of apartments on 12 acres that include the old Riverside-Bradley public housing site. Casto, the Robert Weiler Co., developer Don Kelley, Smoot Construction and the Columbus Metropolitan Housing Authority are partners on the project.

    The first two planned buildings would be five stories each with 220 units. Construction could begin as early as next spring, said Casto partner Bill Riat
    .

    The number of units could reach 700, Riat said. A high-rise could replace the housing authority’s Sunshine Terrace, a high-rise apartment building that is slated for demolition.”

    I’m not sure it would make much sense to tear down one public housing complex just to replace it with essentially the exact same thing.

    it could take the same format as the New Village Apartments in Italian Village (2nd and Summit), where a smaller percentage of subsidized housing (20%) was built into a larger (80%) community of market rate rentals.

    Interview: Bryan Brown on New East Franklinton Development
    June 5, 2014 7:00 am — Brent Warren

    Columbus Metropolitan Housing Authority and their partners recently revealed new details of their plan to develop 13 acres in East Franklinton. The project will likely be the first major development shaped by the vision laid out in the East Franklinton Creative Community District Plan – a high-density, mixed-use, urban neighborhood on the western banks of the Scioto River.

    We recently sat down with Bryan Brown, Senior Vice President of Business Development at the CMHA, for an update on the project. See below for excepts from our conversation, including the potential for live/work units, a possible affordable component of the development, and his thoughts on how this project fits within the mission of CMHA.
