From The Columbus Dispatch:
The Columbus Metropolitan Housing Authority plans to break ground in about a month on new apartments in Franklinton that will house residents who now live in the Downtown YMCA, where the residences soon will be vacated.
The $13.7-million, four-story McKinley Manor will be built at 1048 W. Broad St., near a Columbus fire station. The 44-unit building will house YMCA residents 55 and older once construction is completed by fall 2023.
YMCA officials in October 2019 said they planned to vacate the seven-story, 403-unit building at 40 W. Long St. after studies showed converting the old residential rooms into efficiency apartments would cost an estimated $50 million. The building, which was constructed in 1924, is believed to be the largest YMCA residential building in the country.
