Just like Homeport started out with a different identity a la Columbus Housing Partnership, so too did JPMorgan Chase. In 1988, Banc One Corp. provided the capital to create one of our first developments in the South of Main area. Ten years later, Banc One merged to become Bank One of Ohio.
As the 90s came to a close, Homeport looked to Chicago-based Federal Home Loan Bank for financing. With this relationship established, JPMorgan Chase was brought into the funding fold. In 2004, Bank One of Ohio merged with JPMorgan Chase, thus providing a link between the local and regional connections.
Those roots are still strong twenty five years later - as JPMorgan Chase continues to support not only our physical developments but our community outreach efforts as well. This year, JPMorgan Chase has underwritten our My Home events, allowing us to spread our message to more people. And in the last 12 years alone, JPMorgan Chase has provided 33.5 million dollars in funding for seven developments including:
- Bending Brook
- Fieldstone Court Senior Apartments
- City View Homes
- Elim Estates
- Elim Court
- Duxberry Landing
- Eastway Village
Our partnership with JPMorgan Chase has grown immensely in the last quarter century, and we look forward to continuing our relationship far into the future.
