Amid the sounds of laughter and outdoor fun that will fill the air of the Brewery District this summer, one of the main sources of activity will be a place you might not expect. In addition to the eclectic mix of bars, shops and restaurants, the area boasts a new residential address that can truly be described as a masterpiece in the works.
Welcome to Liberty Place Apartments, an immaculate and upscale oasis in the shadow of downtown Columbus. From the built-in bookcases and custom-built wine racks to the cultured-marble vanities and triple-crown molding, Liberty Place has it all. As property manager Jeannette Tannert explains, “This development is so much more than what you can put on paper. There’s not an ounce of wasted space!” And as her sunny disposition and lilting Texas accent crescendos into a fast-paced and excited dialogue, it takes nothing more than a quick tour to justify such a drastic change in demeanor.
Simply put, Liberty Place is a residence to get excited about. Convenience is king as its residents are just a short walk away from the German Village plus several shops, restaurants and a beautiful new Kroger grocery store. The complex is also one mile from Schiller Park and, as Jeanette is quick to point out, “just a $7 cab ride away from Nationwide Arena.”
The property’s clubhouse sets a tone of luxury for the entire development. While snacking on the daily supply of fresh-baked cookies, guests will undoubtedly be impressed by the marble flooring, contemporary styling and state-of-the-art business center. And although the on-site fitness center may not have the rows upon rows of equipment demanded by fitness purists, it nevertheless has a solid (and brand-spanking new) mix of machines, free weights and cardio equipment. Jeannette also welcomes residents to drop off their dry-cleaning as part of their concierge service and pick it up later in the week.
But perhaps the best asset of the clubhouse is its proximity to the courtyard pool and spa. French doors open to reveal an assortment of colorful flowers, lush plants and shade-giving trees as the sidewalk gently slopes toward the crystal-clear water. And considering urban pools are virtually non-existent in the downtown community, the residents of Liberty Place do not take their good fortune for granted. Impromptu group barbecues are the norm as any rise in temperature is a reason to party. In fact, plans are already underway to add a few more grills for resident use.
On the way to the featured unit, it’s impossible to ignore the beautiful slate floors on the ground level and the extra-wide hallways throughout the complex. In fact, residents are able to walk around the entire development in a completely enclosed hallway. With respect to interior design, it’s immediately apparent that the Cape Cod-inspired design allows Liberty Place to zig where many other downtown residences zag. Authentic New York-style lofts with exposed brick walls and wood-beamed ceilings have received the lion’s share of attention as of late, and so the beachy atmosphere created by the clean lines, neutral colors and dazzling white appliances is a welcome and refreshing alternative.
Prospective residents can expect to find 10-foot ceilings in each unit, which includes bathrooms with ceramic floors, oversized garden tubs and impressive vanity-to-ceiling mirrors. Every unit also has side-by-side refrigerators with ice and water dispensers, a full-size stacking washer and dryer, vinyl flooring in classic oak, under-cabinet lighting and a mirrored backsplash. Bedrooms are, for the most part, quite spacious and every unit comes with a ton of closet space. Select units also have custom-trimmed columns, elegant archways, coffered ceilings, 8-foot bay windows and fenced-in private yards.
In an effort to keep the property secure, Liberty Place has a gate attendant on staff every night. The parking garage is also designed so that a resident can park on the same level as his or her apartment. Future plans for the property include a 2nd phase of construction which may dare to build higher than the current three-floor design. As the property expands, additional parking and landscaping will be sure to follow.
