Last month we featured a video blog update on construction at Highpoint on Columbus Commons. This week, we’d like to take a closer look at the simultaneous rebirth of Ohio’s three biggest cities. As reported in a Columbus Dispatch article on February 5, Columbus, Cincinnati and Cleveland have all experienced momentous booms, and Carter has proudly been at the helm of two of the largest developments spurring such recovery in Cincinnati and Columbus.
The $50 million Highpoint on Columbus Commons will bring 301 apartments and 23,000 square feet of retail space to the downtown area. Carter is developing the project along with local partners Bob Weiler and Don Kelley. “Highpoint on Columbus Commons will create a new style of upscale urban living in downtown Columbus,” said Conor McNally, chief development officer for Carter. “We are excited to be working on this project, which will continue to help revitalize the area.” Click here to read a previous blog post about the project.
In Cincinnati, Carter plans to break ground on the second phase of The Banks in the summer of 2013, including 300 apartment units and 60,000 square feet of retail space. “Phase II of The Banks shows our continued dedication to Cincinnati and spurring economic recovery in downtown,” said Laura Swadel, vice president of Carter. “The fact that we were able to get this project off the ground in the midst of a recession is truly amazing.” To learn more about The Banks, click here.
