casto-biz-memberSince 1926 the CASTO name has been synonymous with real estate and development in Columbus. CASTO’s corporate offices have been in Downtown Columbus for all of its 90 year history.

“We love being downtown and our associates take advantage of our Downtown location by using many of the area’s amenities like grabbing lunch at Foodtruck Food Court in the Columbus Commons or taking a walk along the Scioto Mile during breaks,” said Lindsey VanMeter, CASTO’s Director of Human Resources.

Today, CASTO owns prominent Downtown real estate such as Broad & High and recently completed The Julian Apartments located in the corner of Front and Main Streets. The Julian features 90 loft-style apartment homes, a designer finished lobby, state-of-the-art fitness center and rooftop terrace with sweeping views of the city skyline.

“Our residents at The Julian enjoy living Downtown because there’s so much for them to do! Every week there seems to be a festival, concert, or new restaurant opening for residents to check out. Our building’s biggest amenity is definitely its prime location in Downtown Columbus,” said Skylar Dinkins, The Julian’s Property Manager.

Another notable CASTO property, Broad & High features Class A office space and retail in the heart of Downtown. Tenants include Jack & Benny’s Diner, Tim Horton’s, Ringside Café, Lola’s Burger Shack and Edible Arrangements.

“Broad & High’s proximity to business, dense foot traffic and day time population-not to mention its highly prominent visibility- make it a one of a kind location,” said Sydney Federer, Leasing Director at CASTO.

For 90 years CASTO has been part of the Columbus community and currently owns over 23 million square feet of retail space and 4,000 apartment homes across the Midwest and Southeastern United States.
