Zoning changes approved for Trolley Barn redevelopment project

The transformation of Columbus’s historic Trolley Barn site into a $29-million mixed-use development is one step closer after Columbus City Council approved zoning changes the developer called “critical” to the project, The Columbus Dispatch reports. Brad DeHays plans to convert the “small complex of buildings dating back to the 1880s” into “offices, a market housing independent food vendors and 13,000-square-foot Columbus Brewing Co. brewpub,” according to the article.

DeHays has secured state Historic Preservation Tax Credits (see our August 1, 2018 blog post) as well as federal historic tax credits for the project. For more, read the full article.
