In the two story units you can hear every step from the tenants above and the garage door opening, either the upstairs tenants or mine is quite disruptive. Good quality construction, amazing location, with amazing staff and maintenance. Parking for guests can be a challenge, but hey, it's right downtown so leave the car at home.

This location is great I have a dog and we love to walk on the scioto mile. I work in German Village and its an easy 10 minute walk to work each morning. And I enjoy going to new restaurant. This location is a nice walk or quick uber ride to grandview, short north, or campus.
Thanks so much for submitting a review :) Bring that pup in soon for some love and treats!

Great place to live best floor plans downtown
submitted by Marc S. - Jan 11, 2017| Recommended: Yes
You get 1 parking space garage, which is fine- a little problematic if you're expecting guests. They have to use on street parking. Not a big deal. Units are well insulated from each other and really don't hear neighbors at all-except sometimes muted noise when OSU plays...and loses
The overall landscaping is well maintained, but recently pet owners have used the driveway entrance outside the gates with no pick up of their pets. Not LC's issue, but that area is a minefield of large dog scat.
We love our Durham unit, and while not inexpensive, we've been here since 2010 and no complaints, but one. In a Durham, the ground floor can not be heated to any degree considered normal. Must use a space heater. Design flaw in the HVAC layout. Even with a space heater, all the heat goes up the stairway. Cold days it registers 52-55 before turning on the space heater.
The maintenance staff is superb. They fix the problem quickly and never had to re-call for reappearance of the problem.
The staff is professional, friendly, warm and personable. Very focused on you in any conversation, and great interpersonal skills.
Overall, from other units we've visited to meet friends, or just to assess to compare, the West block community has no real equal. Even all the new construction, nothing compares, especially to the Durham. 4 stories, ground level can be used as a den or entertainment video area, or office.
You can't find this kind of floor plan in a non elevator nor elevator building in Columbus, downtown or in the outskirts.
Reasonable rent changes year over year. We're always looking and be it Zillow or a Realtor site, nothing comes close.
Thanks so much for the awesome review! We love hearing from our residents that they are having a great experience, especially those that have been with us for several years like you! Hope to see you soon!

The property is great in general

My overall experience is great especially interraction with staff. My only complaint is that the elevator is broken multiple times a week and can be very frustrating. I wouldnt recommend anyone living on a floor above the first in my building.
Thank you for the kind words about your experience here! We are very sorry about the inconvenience caused by the elevator, we are actively trying to have the issue permanently addressed and hope to have resolution soon. Thanks again!
The property is nice but could be better

The apartments are very nice but the amenities utilities are lackluster. The apartment from top to bottom are great and I enjoy living in my unit however once I leave my apartment the frustration mounts. For some reason, only one roof top is available for use. The Elevator has broken down multiple times. I understand the parking situation one parking spot per apartment , I don't understand the notice to tow anyone that parks their car near the ivy beds. That's a very useful spot for people to unload their car not to park especially since you aren't discounting parking in the garage, paying the meter for us, or providing an extra space then I think warning to tow is a bit much. Other than that, the maintenance people have been great and timely, the condition of the apartment is well kept, and the tenants have been friendly.
Thank you for your feedback, we always appreciate hearing from our residents. Parking on site is limited to assigned and regulated spaces only - we do apologize for any inconvenience and please let us know if there is ever anything we can do for you.
85 W Town St Maintenance Review
submitted by Ryan M. - Oct 01, 2016| Recommended: Yes
In response to maintenance request 4167613, the team did a great job in fixing the door frame, walls, and floors in repairing it to as it looked before. The team was very professional and was quick with their work and explanations while I was in the apartment.
In addition, the team was UNBELIEVEABLE and went above and beyond in helping to move a couch the next morning. The whole maintenance request was as a result of damage around a couch not being able to move upstairs. The team was all onboard and the next morning were on time and punctual in moving the couch upstairs. The team was incredible in moving the couch - they didn't carry it inside as the couch wouldn't fit up the stairs. Instead they got creative and utilized a skyjack from another job that week and hoisted the couch into the air up to the 4th floor balcony to complete the job. Five stars for the team and I will forever be grateful in their willingness to help out. THANK YOU THANK YOU
So glad we could help you guys out, you are very welcome!
Excellent place to live
