2021 Development that Best Exemplifies Metropolitan Community Impact
The Redevelopment of Poindexter Village
Developers: Columbus Metropolitan Housing Authority and McCormack Baron Salazar
Owner: Columbus Metropolitan Housing Authority
Location: Columbus, Ohio
The Redevelopment of Poindexter Village by the Columbus Metropolitan Housing Authority and McCormack Baron Salazar spurred so much development that the Near East Side neighborhood of Columbus, Ohio, is now one of the most desired places to live in the city.
The development, which began in 2014 with the 104-unit senior property Poindexter Place, includes 450 new mixed-income units–329 of which are for low-income residents. The full development also includes 336 apartments at Legacy Point, including live-work units for entrepreneurs and 10 market-rate apartments in the historic Harris building, which was the first day care site for African Americans in Franklin County, starting in 1917.
The Ohio Capital Corporation for Housing provided $48 million in LIHTC equity for the $125.7 million property.
“Poindexter Village represents the best of what communities can achieve by working together to reinvest in a historic neighborhood and provide families with beautiful and affordable homes for the future,” said Elizabeth Glynn, chief executive officer at Travois and a DOD judge. “Community leaders, inspired by the work of the neighborhood’s namesake, abolitionist, activist and politician Rev. James Preston Poindexter, worked to save the neglected area and breathe new life into the historically African American community known for its thriving arts, music and culture. I’m thrilled to see its recognition with this award.”
