Huntington To Convert Closed North Side Store Into Office Space


Columbus-based Huntington Bancshares will get city tax breaks to convert a vacant Cleveland Avenue grocery store into an office building with 14 hundred workers. The office is slated to open next month. Some of the jobs will be moved from company operations on Morse Road and South High Street. The company also says it will create 1 thousand new jobs by 2024 and will lend 300 million dollars to people and small businesses in Linden and other low- to moderate-income neighborhoods over the next five years. City officials say the lending will spur further job growth.
