Historic housing in Weinland Park  was recognized with a Preservation Honor Award from the National Trust for Historic Preservation last month:

The award will be presented to Community Properties of Ohio’s parent entity, Ohio Capital Corporation for Housing, at the National Preservation Awards ceremony in Buffalo, New York, on Thursday, October 20, at 5:30 PM EST. Co-recipients are: City of Columbus, Historic Preservation Office; Columbus Metropolitan Housing Authority; Franklin County, Ohio; Albert M. Higley/Baker-Henning Productions; Judith Williams, Historic Preservation Consultant; Moody Nolan, Inc.; Ohio Housing Finance Agency, and U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development


CPO renovated their buildings in the New Indianola Historic District and others in the neighborhood, with the exception of the blocks located on 11th Avenue between N. 4th and Grant. Hopefully, an Ohio state historic tax credit is in the neighborhoods future for that renovation. Maybe awards come in threes?

So far every major project in Weinland Park has been award winning. If you’ve got anything planned, no pressure. In fact, as new projects are rolled out in Weinland Park the first question ought to be about what award we’ll be bringing home.
