City considers rezoning, and then selling, the 'Pump House'


Follow The Republic:


Columbus plans to sell its historic Pump House to a private investor — someone who is willing to invest millions to transform it into a riverfront tourist destination.

But before the sale, the Columbus Redevelopment Commission wants the 1.8 acre property at 148 Lindsey St. rezoned to a more limited use, to ensure that the future buyer would be investing in what the city envisions for the riverfront area. That vision is something that the entire community could enjoy — a signature tourist draw that would enhance the downtown's attractions, according to Mayor Kristen Brown.

The Columbus Plan Commission will consider the rezoning at 4 p.m. Wednesday, and then the proposal could move to the Columbus City Council for approval.
