Black-owned Columbus bank Adelphi proposed by business leaders


The new Ann B. Walker Plaza is part of the Adelphi Quarter development along East Long Street that will include the proposed Adelphi Bank.

A Black-owned bank could be coming to King-Lincoln/Bronzeville, a neighborhood known for its long legacy of Black entrepreneurship. 

A group of Columbus professionals has filed an application with the Ohio Department of Commerce’s Division of Financial Institutions to incorporate the state-chartered Adelphi Bank near the intersection of East Long Street and Garfield Avenue.

The proposed incorporators include the names of business and community leaders Franklin County Commissioner Kevin Boyce; former Columbus Mayor Michael Coleman; emergency medicine physician Kamran Haydar; Crabbe Brown & James Managing Partner Larry James; former Fifth Third Central Ohio President and CEO Jordan Miller; OhioHealth President of External Affairs and Senior Vice President Karen Morrison; former Ohio State Controller and Columbus-Franklin County Finance Authority board member Greta Russell; and Squire Patton Boggs Senior Partner Alex Shumate.
