From the architect: As respected leaders in residential design, Rhode Partners’ project represents the firm’s third student housing building in the city and adds to their list of nearly a dozen nationwide. Situated in Columbus’s vibrant university district, the apartments provide tenants with modern amenities such as a community café, gym, and study area, as well as walkable access to the Ohio State University campus.

The five-story, 143-unit residence features floor plans ranging from studios to five bedrooms, each outfitted with contemporary fixtures and finishes. Understanding the importance of the site’s position within the campus's corridor, Rhode Partners designed the ground floor walk-up units on East Ninth Avenue to enhance the pedestrian experience and relate to the existing neighborhood. The building’s façade of brick, metal paneling, and wood cladding is punctuated by large picture windows.
