The renovation of the historic Open Air School building in Old North Columbus will be moving forward. The Ohio Development Services Agency announced today that the project was one of 24 statewide to be awarded Ohio Historic Preservation Tax Credits.

Also receiving credits were two downtown buildings – the renovation of the Winders Building, which will serve as the new headquarters for the Greater Columbus Arts Council, and the larger building next door to it, at 174 E. Long St. – as well as the redevelopment of the Hoster Brewery complex. That project also received credits last summer.

And on the Near East Side, a plan to renovate a historic building on Parkwood Avenue, across from East Side school, was awarded credits.

The tax credits, which are awarded by the state twice a year, are used by developers to help close funding gaps for historic renovation projects that would otherwise prove challenging to complete.
