COLUMBUS, Ind. — City and state aid could help two new developments take root in the remains of the former Golden Castings foundry site on 10th Street — a $23 million investment in the long-empty property.

Where concrete rubble, tangled rebar and a hulk of an empty building now sit on 12.8 largely empty acres could be a $10 million affordable-housing complex and a $13 million nursing home dedicated to seniors with memory ailments.

Mayor Kristen Brown said the projects and funding options could tie together to help solve an enormous issue for the community.
