Former Kroger bakery near downtown Columbus could become apartments

Three developers are working on a joint venture to turn the former Kroger bakery building on the north end of downtown Columbus into 448 apartment units as part of a mixed-use development, NBC4i.com reports. A joint venture of Casto, Kelley Companies and The Robert Weiler Company “bought the property for $8.15 million” after Kroger closed the bakery, with plans to restore the two existing buildings, which are almost 100 years old, and add three more apartment buildings, according to the article. The project would also include restaurant and retail space, as well as outdoor amenities. The developers said they expect renovations would need Ohio Historic Preservation Tax Credits.
