Mondrian could be Franklinton’s tallest tower at 15 stories, adding affordable housing

Developer Brian Higgins’ next project in East Franklinton could become that Columbus neighborhood’s tallest tower, with 15 stories of residential units, commercial space, parking and a top-floor “signature” restaurant, reports. The project, located on parcels assembled at 567–595 W. Broad St., is to be called the Mondrian. It would incorporate some historic properties on the site and add a 15-story mixed-use building with 70% of its 206 apartment units being made “affordable to those making 80% to 100% of the area’s median income,” according to the article. The project will seek Ohio Historic Preservation Tax Credits; if it wins these credits in the fall, the project is likely to break ground in 2022. For more, read the full article.
