Columbus: Port Columbus Original Terminal Restoration Project
« on: September 04, 2017, 09:23:39 AM »
The original Port Columbus Airport Terminal, built in 1929, needs your help to be restored back to its former glory and make it into a Center of New Business Development for Startups & for The Community. Originally sited by Aviator & Entrepreneur Charles Lindbergh to be a hub on the Transcontinental Air Transport system, the building was converted to offices and has slowly degraded due to years of unoccupancy and neglect.

The Original Port Columbus Administration and Terminal building was stabilized in 2016 with a new roof and the tear-out of the rotted interior. The next phase is a $2.1 million renovation. We need to raise $800,0000 to activate a combination of grants, tax credits, and debt financing to restore the building and install a business development center and interactive museum that honors the entrepreneurial spirit of Lindbergh and creates new and exciting innovations in aerospace and transportation.  Our stretch goal of $1.8 million would completely fund the project without additional outside support and create an endowment to support the maintenance of the building for the foreseeable future.

Your tax-deductible donation will insure the survival of this iconic building and bring resources to a new generation of innovators that will drive the future of new companies, new products, and new jobs.  In this new space, we will bring an integrated and interactive learning experience for those that visit, and event venue to host private and public functions, and a business development center with offices, shared spaces and other amenities of a modern incubator and accelerator space.
