Beginning in 2015, Kegler Brown
provided general counsel to Nothing Into Something Real Estate (NISRE), a
faith-based non-profit housing organization in central Ohio throughout the
complicated process leading up to the groundbreaking of their 25-unit housing
complex, Cargominiums. To create this affordable, sustainable and eco-friendly
apartment building constructed from repurposed shipping containers, NISRE
relied on the advice of Kegler Brown to resolve issues in zoning and real
estate, and securing and structuring finances.
NISRE’s Cargominiums are
scheduled to be completed in the spring of 2017 and will be Ohio’s first
residential building created from shipping containers. Kegler Brown will
continue to provide legal services throughout the construction process.
