Pizzuti Partners with Rhove to Build Deeper Resident Connections in the Blossoming Discovery District

The Pizzuti Companies, a recognized leader in the development, marketing, and management of real estate, today announced a partnership with Rhove to strengthen the community of their latest multi-family project, Library Park. This community is the first of several multi-family developments Pizzuti plans to deliver in the vibrant Discovery District, a neighborhood which continues to experience incredible transformation. The innovative partnership between Pizzuti and Rhove, a Columbus-based financial real estate technology company, enables tenants at Library Park to build significant savings as renters and deepens their connection to the place they call home.

By downloading the Rhove mobile app and creating a Rhove Rewards account, residents at Library Park will be eligible to receive a dollar-for-dollar monthly savings match of 2.5% of their monthly rent payment. Residents also receive Closing Credits ––credits towards reducing the transaction cost of purchasing a home––a brand new Rhove benefit available to anyone saving  with the innovative fintech company.

“Pizzuti and Rhove share common commitments to improving community experiences and building loyalty among residents, making this a natural partnership,” said Jon Riewald, Director of Development for The Pizzuti Companies. “We are excited to offer our residents the unique opportunity to enhance their monthly savings with Rhove. The Discovery District is anchored by the City’s cultural reservoirs: The Metropolitan Library, Museum of Art, Topiary Park, several institutions of higher learning, and some of the City’s largest employers. This neighborhood will continue to serve a diverse renter audience, and Rhove is an attractive amenity we can offer to all of our residents at Library Park,” Riewald added.

Rhove’s mission is to expand access and opportunity for everyone to own in their community. The Rhove mobile savings app enables tenants at participating properties to make money on rent and earn cash back on their monthly rent payment. Savings can be used towards life’s biggest purchases, such as homeownership.

“We’re pleased to partner with Pizzuti, a family-owned company with over five decades of impact. They are leaders in every facet of real estate development across the Midwest and beyond, regarded for attention to detail and keen aesthetic eye,” said Calvin Cooper, Co-founder and CEO of Rhove. “There is a paradigm shift happening in real estate and Rhove is positioned at the forefront. Renters are seeking solutions to unique generational challenges, and the most innovative property owners are responding with a more holistic approach to community building. In doing so, they’re able to extend their brand in ways that benefit renters, build loyalty and enhance value across their portfolio.”

Phase I of Library Park includes 70-units located in four historic buildings at the intersection of Oak St and S Grant Ave, in the heart of the Discovery District. Pizzuti expects to welcome the first residents to Library Park on May 1. Phase II will deliver an additional 80-units late summer in a new construction building at 409 Oak St.
