Building renovations under way in downtown Columbus.

Like many legacy cities Columbus is home to a number of buildings dating back to the 19th century. While many of those buildings appear to be solidly built, time can take its toll on them. This was evident recently when a three-story century-old building in the King Lincoln-Bronzeville neighborhood collapsed. We’ll discuss the building collapse and what’s being done to make sure this doesn’t happen to other similar structures.

Guests:

  • Mark Ferenchik, reporter for Columbus Dispatch
  • Rebecca Kemper, CEO Columbus Landmarks
  • Anthony J. Celebrezze III, Deputy Director, Columbus, Dept of Building and Zoning Services
  • Steve Coon, Founder and President of Coon Restoration & Sealants
