The company redeveloping the Columbus Coated Fabrics site into apartments and condominiums plans to build unsubsidized housing along E. 11th Avenue to create a gateway to the old industrial site.
Wagenbrenner Development plans to tear down 96 units of blighted, government-subsidized housing along 11th Avenue owned by the nonprofit Ohio Capital Corporation for Housing, said Eric Wagenbrenner, company vice president.
Redeveloping that site into condominiums and apartments would provide an attractive link from N. 4th Street to the Columbus Coated Fabrics site at Grant Avenue, he said. “It’s all one contiguous piece,” Wagenbrenner said.
