A structure in uptown with strong historical ties to Columbus could soon get a new life.
The Columbus City Council could vote next month to allow developers to convert a former Coca-Cola bottling factory on the southwest corner of 6th Avenue and 12th Street to include apartments, office and warehouse space.
A rezoning from the current light manufacturing and industrial designation to an Uptown zoning will allow the applicants, currently represented by local attorney Ken Henson Jr., to update two vacant buildings on the property, which sit on less than an acre across from Goldens’ Foundry and Machine Co.
The property has been
