The Milo-Grogan neighborhood is located due north of downtown Columbus. Over time the two distinctly industrial neighborhoods of Milo and Grogan were joined together as a way to better define unclear neighborhood boundaries.

By the 1980's both I-71 construction and the closing of factories took a toll on the residents. In 2007, the Milo-Grogan Area Commission, in partnership with the city of Columbus, published the Milo-Grogan 2007 Neighborhood Plan, which established goals for the community for the next 10 years.


Neighborhood Revitalization


Homeport’s new lease option home development in Milo-Grogan will feature traditional architecture designs with 3 bedrooms and 1.5-2 bathrooms. Two models, The Eliabeth and The Westminster, with floor-plan options are available. Each Homeport home is a quality design with energy efficiency and sustainability built in.  

 3 Bedroom Single-Family homes are available for lease purchase. Call our management partner Community Properties of Ohio at 888-564-3803 for more information.
