The year 2020 presented chaos and disruption. And yet, despite the resulting economic slowdown and work-from-home requirements, the Columbus-Franklin County Finance Authority transaction level remained strong.
In all, the Authority was involved in 23 transactions representing more than $291 million in development financing and loans.
“Despite the incredibly unpredictable economy, projects in central Ohio continued to move forward,” said Finance Authority President Jean Carter Ryan. Among the most notable projects we helped finance this year are Grandview Crossing, The Peninsula in Franklinton, and Dublin’s Bridge Park. The Finance Authority also supported the Columbus Regional Energy Special Improvement District (ESID), introduced our new Neighborhood Improvement and Small Business Loan program, and maintained our A- Standard & Poor’s bond rating.
