Massive Rogue Fitness Facility Starting to Take Shape in Milo-Grogan
By Brent Warren, Columbus Underground
April 23, 2016 - 8:00 am


The scale of what is being built at the southwest corner of East Fifth and Cleveland avenues is beginning to sink in, both for neighbors of the site and for the many people who pass through the busy intersection on a daily basis.  Enormous concrete walls show the footprint of what will eventually be a 600,000 square foot building housing the manufacturing, distribution, office and retail operations of Rogue Fitness.
( . . . )
New renderings of the campus provided by Rogue show a brick building with traditional, factory-style windows built up against Cleveland Avenue.  Rogue also controls about three acres of land along Fifth Avenue that are not a part of the campus currently under construction, but has yet to make any plans for future development on that portion of the site.
( . . . )
Ashley Felger Smith of Rogue said that distribution out of the new facility could begin as soon as this fall, with a goal of full completion by the second quarter of 2017.  At that time as many as 500 employees could be working at the site.

5th Avenue Lumber expects to triple business with new buildings, bigger yard
By Evan Weese, Staff Reporter - Columbus Business First
September 26, 2016, 1:00pm EDT


5th Avenue Lumber may be 100 years old, but itís primed to grow like a newly minted startup.  The lumber supplierís yard has been expanded and two product-storage buildings have been added to its campus along East Fifth Avenue in the Milo-Grogan neighborhood, laying the groundwork for what executives say could be a tripling of business.

Founded in 1916 and acquired by the Strait & Lamp Group in 1986, 5th Avenue Lumber is expanding to meet demand from home improvers and commercial builders thatís bounced back from the depths of the collapse in construction following the 2008 financial crisis.

Columbus Business First spoke with Todd Buxton, general manager of 5th Avenue Lumber, and Steven Arnold, president of Strait & Lamp Group, as the lumber supplier puts finishing touches on its expansion in the shadow of the new Rogue Fitness manufacturing complex at East Fifth and Cleveland avenues.

Homeport Building 33 New Homes in Milo-Grogan



Despite some uncertainty surrounding the tax credit program that is funding the project, Homeport is moving ahead with plans to build 33 new single family homes in Milo-Grogan.

The homes will be lease-purchase, meaning that qualified residents will be eligible to purchase the homes after a 15-year rental period. To qualify to rent the homes, residents would need to make less than 60 percent of the average median income.
