Many WYHS Alumni lived in the apartments that were located on Broad & S. Hamilton Roads.  Over the past decades, there have been problems with the tenants.  So, the City of Whitehall decided to demolish those apartments.  Click on the link (blue underlined verbiage) from WBNS TV10 report on those apartments that have been a problem area for years, plagued with drug crime.

The city purchased the Commons at Royal Landing last year with the intent to tear it down.  Now that all of the tenants are out, big changes will be coming soon.  Boarded up and closed for good, no one is living at E. Broad Street and Hamilton Road anymore.

City officials said once a problem property known for illegal activity won't be.  "We understood that it could not continue in its current form and we really needed to pivot towards the future,"' Whitehall Director of Development Zach Woodruff said.

City officials say the $50 million project could be finished by mid-2018.  The name of the development, Norton Crossing, comes from Norton Field in Whitehall. City officials say it was one of the first airstrips in central Ohio

Woodruff says the 20 acres of land will transform into new apartments, offices, retail, restaurants and green space.  "We know that this is going to lead to other opportunities and we're certainly working on others right now," Woodruff said.

Whitehall is working with a Columbus company on the redevelopment plans and proposed demolition for these to come down, is scheduled for this summer.  Neighboring businesses and the people who see the area of E. Broad Street are hopeful for a positive change in Whitehall.
