Trade Gothic Bold Condensed
On their website, it seems to be called "One Nike Currency", maybe a custom font?
Frd is quite correct there are 2 custom fonts used on the site as well as Trade Gothic. OneNikeCurrency which features 13 international currency glyphs (€ etc) and OneNikeGlyphs which has 90 custom logos, social media icons and stuff. Expensive stuff, but it is Nike…
I tried a few chars following pilaster's suggestion but I find the result awful. I the tried moving the seperate parts of the glyps to the right to get a less extreme fat result but the same goes ... brrrrr ...
I had a play in Illustrator, and to be honest, the Kat is right, It doesn't look very good.
You wrote "So for a logo that I am working on," not that "I'm required to create a font". If it's a logo, why does it need to be editable i.e. a font?

Looks to me like that started life as LHFs Blackstone, before a lot of modification. Blackstone was itself inspired by this Sanborn Map Cover.
Wouldn't the easiest way to achieve this be to fire up a vector editor (Illustrator etc.) and fill the voids in Colonna?
Tell us which font and who the author is, and someone MAY be able to shed light on their whereabouts.
I do wonder, that in a culture where we are prepared to pay $3 for a cup of coffee, people find it extraordinary to pay $20 to use a creation, that has taken a fellow human being hundreds of hours to create.
So you are joining the MZ owners hitchhiking club… excellent.
Unless there is a 'revival/recreation' that has been done that I'm unaware of I doubt you'll fin this as a font. Decals and stencil templates available:
Looks hand drawn to me but hard to tell with so much creasing, but whilst you wait for another opinion, heres a song of the same name to keep you entertained…
