Columbus Landmarks Wants You To Give This Free Historic Building A New Home

Who wants to rescue a charming, historic building?

This service station was built in 1925 and it’s being offered for free to anyone who has an appropriate available site and a creative vision for it. The endangered building has so much potential to be transformed into something remarkable. It could be an art studio, a coffee shop, a small restaurant, or really anything you can imagine.

Currently, the nearly century-old building sits in the way of a proposed redevelopment at King & High. The developer will pay to move the structure if a site is found nearby. Columbus Landmarks Foundation is facilitating the hunt for a new owner.

“This is a prime opportunity to recycle an entire building for a creative new purpose,” the organization shared on Facebook. “It presents an opportunity to give the community a visible connection to the past while adding authentic visual character to a neighborhood. But action must be taken soon!”

If you are interested in this amazing opportunity, you should reach out to Susan Keeny, the Preservation Director for Columbus Landmarks at [email protected] or call at 614-221-4508. This absolutely will not last long, so if you’ve got a vision and the property lined up, give them a call.
