Why: The NRP Group, a full-service developer, general contractor and property manager, identified Columbus as one of a growing number of cities with strong demand for affordable rental units for hard-working citizens.
NRP has joined forces with MiraCit Development Corporation, a neighborhood based nonprofit organization to develop North Central Village as part of an overall revitalization plan for the Mock Road neighborhood. The development will act as a cornerstone to the neighborhood’s redevelopment activities which include 344 residential units built or rehabbed representing $50 million of investment in the neighborhood in the last 10 years.
Details: North Central Village was the first development to receive Tax Credit Exchange (TCE) housing funds through the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act (ARRA) in Ohio. The Ohio Finance Agency (OHFA) awarded the $3.3 million allocation to North Central Village in Columbus, a 74-unit affordable senior community situated in 12 one-story buildings that replaced a blighted mobile park on the east side of Columbus.
