The former Salvation Army Camp along US 42 in northern Delaware, Ohio, will soon be home to bustling mixed-use development according to Columbus Business First.

T&R Properties purchased the Camp two years ago for $2.3 million and has been progressing towards building 600-unit residential apartments and townhomes, public recreation space, a men’s shelter, and a commercial office building. It appears that some of the camp will survive in 1.1 million of public recreation space that will include a shelter and amphitheater.

The city blessed the project in November but the final piece to the puzzle came this week when the State awarded T&R a $4.85 million Transformational Mixed-Use Tax Credit for the project.

Columbus Business First is reporting that 13 people will be employed full-time in the development when completed.
