Casto to build project in rundown area of Columbus


Next week, Casto and local officials will stick shovels in the ground in the East Franklinton section of Columbus and signal a major event in the rebuilding of what was the original settlement of Franklin County, Ohio.

Columbus five years ago razed the crime-ridden Riverside-Bradley public housing complex in the area on the city’s west side, and it is there that Casto will build River & Rich, a mixed-use project with 230 garden and townhouse apartments and 25,000 sq. ft. of retail.

“We’re excited to break ground on River & Rich, and to contribute to the vibrant community and growth of East Franklinton,” said Brent Sobczak, Casto’s director of multifamily development and finance.

A summer 2018 opening date has been set for River & Rich, which the Columbus-based developer is building in partnership with the Columbus Metropolitan Housing Authority, Robert Weiler Co., Kelley Cos., and Smoot Construction.
