Residents of Columbus, OH are probably familiar with the “Fab Five”. No, not the nickname for longtime rival, Michigan’s 1991 basketball team, we’re talking about the REAL “Fab Five”. We’re talking about the 5 best apartment communities in Columbus. Each of these has something that sets itself apart from the rest, but the one thing they all share in common is they’re among the best apartments in Columbus.


40 West

Life at 40 West is a unique experience. Sandwiched between the bustling Short North Arts District and the peaceful Victorian Village are boutique apartments each with their own unique finishes so you know nobody will have a place quite like yours. Floor to ceiling windows, hardwood floors, and granite counter tops are only a few of the sleek finishes at 40 West. Located just a block from High St., you’ll be walking distance to a plethora of shops, dining, entertainment, art galleries, parks, and more!


The Jeffrey

Nestled in the historic Italian Village is The Jeffrey: luxury, pet-friendly apartment homes restored with the perfect balance of original materials and all of the modern comforts of home. From the floor to ceiling marble in the lobby to the crown molding, hardwood floors, and coffered ceilings in the residences, the building exemplifies greatness. Work out in the state of the art fitness center then loosen up in the on-site massage room. But wait, it gets better. There is also a rooftop deck with wonderful views of the city!

The Julian

The Julian is a historic 7 story building that has been renovated into modern, urban 1 bedroom, 2 bedroom, and penthouse lofts.

The Prescott

If you want to be close to all the action in Short North, The Prescott is the place to be. The wraparound outdoor terraces and Juliette balconies boast unparalleled views of the popular High St. and you’re walking distance to everything you could possibly need. Restaurants, art galleries, trendy boutiques, and more are all right at your front doorstep. The apartments are designed with high end finishes, luxurious bathrooms, and tons of nooks and crannies which give you plenty of usable space. We can’t forget to mention the amount of closet space you get as well!


The Wonder Bread Lofts

Also located in the Italian Village are the greatest thing since sliced bread, the Wonder Bread Lofts. The iconic Wonder Bread factory has been revitalized into industrial loft style one and two bedroom apartments featuring wood ceilings, colorful duct work and beams, and breathtaking downtown views. Hang out with fellow residents at the rooftop deck or in the spacious, communal courtyard. The kitchens are equipped with everything you need to cook a delicious meal, but there is also a restaurant on site, Cray Eatery and Drinkery.
