Do you think of Downtown as a neighborhood? Yes, people work here and they visit here, but they also live here. And now you have a chance to see how those folks live. The Urban Living Tour returns on Sunday, May 17 from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. You can poke your nose into over a dozen apartments, condos and mixed-use buildings and learn more about what it’s like to life life urban-style.
The stops include locations that are fully furnished, some under construction, and some totally unfinished spaces. In addition to the residential locations, there will be lifestyle businesses and restaurants offering information and discounts to participants.
Residential tour stops include: 250 High, Jeffrey Park, Harrison Park, Pullman Way at Grandview Yard, The View on Fifth, LC RiverSouth, The Fireproof Building, Flats on Vine, Flats II, Apartments at The Yard, The Keystone Building, The Atlas Building, Highpoint on Columbus Commons, Grant Park, Grant Commons, The Julian, two City of Columbus Land Bank properties, and development from The Lykens Companies.
Lifestyle businesses and restaurants include: King Business Interiors, Fortner Fine Living, The Hills Market, Dr. James Ford, DDS, Glass Axis, Goodale Pro Hardware, and Global Gifts.
Other stops may be added in the days up to the event. Be sure to check in at different locations on the tour; when you get your map/passport stamped, you will be eligible to win a grand prize package worth more than $1,000. Stick around too for the after-party presented by Wagenbrenner Development. Just bring your tour ticket to Jeffrey Park in Italian Village to enjoy the event featuring local beer from Seventh Son, Hoof Hearted and Land Grant, plus live music and food trucks. Just think of it as a welcome-to-the-neighborhood soiree.
