Development Project Excites Franklinton Residents
COLUMBUS (Ken Hines) -- Franklinton residents are hopeful that recently-announced development plans will breathe new life into their community.
Columbus city leaders announced a new development project on Tuesday that will cover dozens of acres in the area around COSI.
Franklinton residents are excited about the project, which will include a Columbus Zoo extension, a veteran's memorial, and 1200 housing units.
"It will open up the Downtown area, and it will bring it to life," resident Stephanie Jackson said. "It has no life. [There are] no businesses over here. It would be great energy for this area."
Developers will begin work on the project this fall by narrowing the waterway in front of COSI.
