Borror to buy Ohio Democratic Party's downtown headquarters

The sale of the Fulton Street building will let the party put $2 million in the bank and eliminate about $24,000 of monthly debt service, which could pay for half a dozen field staffers or millions of digital ads.

Borror is submitting plans for a six-story, mixed-use development site in its first foray into the Discovery District in downtown Columbus.

The plan calls for 220 boutique apartments and 15,000 square feet of commercial space from 229 to 275 E. State St., and would be the largest multifamily project to date for the Columbus developer. [lsnip]

The company has assembled four parcels of land with the intent to build one of the larger buildings in the eastern portion of downtown Columbus, taking a portion of the Schoedinger Funeral Services parking lot and replacing the buildings formerly housing Beery & Spurlock Co.

Lori Steiner, president and chief operating officer of Borror, called the area a "new, exciting and growing part of our city."

With interest in urban living fueling growth downtown, attention has turned from the Capitol Square area of western downtown to the east, where Discovery District officials say they want a $2 million facelift for the neighborhood that is anchored by Columbus Museum of Art, the Columbus Metropolitan Library, Columbus State Community College and other cultural hubs.
