The Julian Building is a historic building, raised in 1921. Originally an industrial women’s shoes factory, The Julian is on the National Register of Historic Places. The space has been conserved, modernized and reimagined as a truly unique residential space for those who love living in downtown Columbus, Ohio. This project not only restored one of the city’s most prominent historic buildings, it transformed and modernized the look of the area. The seven story building houses 92 residential units with open floor plans and twelve foot windows throughout. Secure parking was also created on the first two floors.
The Lincoln Construction team has been working with CASTO on a variety of projects since 1984. They look to us as a trusted partner who will give realistic, honest feedback. Sometimes, that real talk isn’t exactly what they want to hear … but we believe that’s why our trusting partnership has endured for 35+ years.
Before we officially started construction on The Julian with CASTO, we had vetted out several other uses for the old factory over a 15-year period. When CASTO decided to go after historic tax credit, they knew that picking a detail-oriented partner that would do whatever it took to meet deadlines was key, as big dollars were tied into the historic renovation process.
Our real talk extends far beyond regular conversations with our clients. We utilize this stance throughout the project to challenge our design partners, ensuring the client is getting the most value for their budget, while keeping their design intent. We also maintain a strong working relationship with city codes officials across Central Ohio, which allows us to ensure building codes are interpreted properly in the design and construction process.
