Real Estate Developer Brad Howe, with JBH Holdings, announced today that The Jackson on High project has reached a major milestone by receiving a 100% real estate tax abatement for 10 years. Columbus’ City Council returned the unanimous approval for the tax abatement during the December 14 evening session. The measure would make The Jackson on High the only existing condominium project in The Short North to receive a full 100% abatement. The Jackson falls within the newly created CRA (Community Reinvestment Area) named “High and Second Community Reinvestment Area” ORD1685-2009.
JBH Holdings applauds the tremendous support we have received from City Council, Mayor Coleman and the City of Columbus Department of Development. Brad Howe stated, “From the very start, Columbus has embraced The Jackson on High and shared in its vision and we believe the achievement of this incredible tax abatement showcases the belief people have in JBH Holdings and its ability to deliver on its promises of high-end luxury at a reasonable price.”
The 100% tax abatement, equal to about 1.9 % of the purchase price per year, would be a major savings to the consumer. For example, a condominium purchased for $300,000 would receive an estimated tax savings of $57,000 over the life of the abatement, or $475 per month. Savings would increase or decrease depending on the condominium’s purchase price and changes in the property tax rates.
From the very start we decided never to put profits above the consumer, Howe continued. “While some would introduce an amazing product to Columbus and then strip it down to increase profits, JBH Holdings has remained committed to the consumer by keeping quality high and delivering on promises. We believe promises made are promises kept and this mantra has registered well with City of Columbus officials and the Greater Columbus marketplace.”
The 100% tax abatement comes on the heels of The Jackson on High receiving FHA approval. Although the real estate marketplace has begun to show some signs of recovery, it is clear that incentives like the 100% tax abatement will be a major enticement to motivate consumers to sign on the dotted line. This coupled with what an amazing condominium product The Jackson on High is, located in the exciting Short North, and you pretty much have an irresistible urban living option.
