Gahanna – The Residences of Creekside

by Maureen McCabe on April 21, 2010

Residences of Creekside modelThe Residences of Creekside is the residential component of  a mixed use development in “Olde Gahanna” on the Big Walnut Creek known as Creekside Gahanna.  The Residences of Creekside are luxury condominiums in this “town center” infill development.  Tuesday evening I had an opportunity to visit  The Residences of Creekside in Gahanna,  the luxury condominiums built by The Stonehenge Company.

Reading this outside the Columbus area?  Gahanna is a suburb of Columbus, outside 270, east of town.  Port Columbus Airport is south of Gahanna.  Gahanna is about 35,000 population.  The 2000 census was  32,636 people.  The area is served by the Gahanna  Jefferson School District.   So Creekside Gahanna is a town center in a small city in a large US metropolitan area.  Lets say The Residences of Creekside are different than most suburban living in Central Ohio.   The developer says ” Suburban Living Redefined.”

The 71* luxury  condominiums at The Residences of Creekside range in size from 815  square feet to 3800 square feet.    There have been 18 purchases but because of buyers wanting “more”   there are  22* units, sold.  So despite an unprecedented recession buyers are combining units at The Residences of Creekside  for more space.  We toured an unfinished unit that I believe is the “sale pending” listing in the Columbus Board of REALTORS® MLS (multiple listing service.) The MLS says that condominium is approximately 4600 square feet.  According to Stonehenge, nine buyers have closed.  We had an opportunity to meet some of the community on their rooftop.  Their rooftop has a pool and fitness center and had wine and  hors d’oeuvres  Tuesday evening, fun!  Even without wine life at “The Residences of Creekside” has to be fun.Residences of Creekside roof-top pool

Living at this town center  with  a city park right outside your door,  on the creek, overlooking a plaza made for playing … with access to fine restaurants has got to be fun.

The Residences of Creekside – Tax Abatement

The Residences of Creekside has a 15  Year, 100%   Tax Abatement, which makes this a surprisingly affordable luxury development.  Other factors that make it affordable are low condo fees, the grounds are a city park, maintained by the city.

Who would move  to The Residences of  Creekside?  The neighbors I met included a single lady who moved to ‘The Residences of Creekside’  from a condo in Sharon Woods (a northeast City of  Columbus neighborhood)  and a couple who moved there from a “big house” in  Marysville.    Talking to both residents   “the quality of life”  came up.   One home owner compared living  in her condominium in  Gahanna’s town center, Creekside to living in Granville.   The Stonehenge Company Vice President, Adam Trautner who is intimately involved in the sales of  The Residences of Creekside talked about transferees who have chosen these luxury condominiums over others in Central Ohio.  In telling us about how customized the interiors of the condominiums can be (totally) Trautner described a very traditional  Philadelphia interior to match a transferee from that city.

Tuesday evening Mo Dioun of  The Stonehenge Company talked about how diverse Gahanna is and how this town center with it’s mix of public places including the park and the plaza as well as office, retail, restaurant and residential space redefines suburban living.

A ’365 Things To Do In Columbus Ohio – Creekside Gahanna – just hang out

Thank Yous and disclosures:

I was invited to an “exclusive real estate blogger” event  and I thank  The Stonehenge Company,  The Residences of Creekside and Fahlgren and everyone else involved for the invitation. At the event  I had an opportunity to listen to Sadicka White the Director of Planning and Economic Development for the City Of  Gahanna talk about how the whole Creekside Gahanna area came together after years of planning and hard work.   It was fascinating.  Brian Hoyt,  the City of Gahanna  Public Information Manager  provided Gahanna information too.   I could make this post super long but instead I will plan to write more about The Residences of Creekside in the future.  Come back…   Just the private parking garage situation at The Residences of Creekside  could be a blog post for pete’s sake!  And the construction.  …and the decorating.  I fell  in love with the kitchen sink, in the Millstreet  model, 1 bedroom, 1 bath, 1 private parking space, 815 square feet, starting at $199,000 .

The photos here were taken by my friend and fellow Real Living HER agent Judi Anderson.*   Thanks Judi

Thanks to the  Residences of Creekside for the opportunity to see your unparalleled in Central Ohio development and thanks for the bottle of wine and the complimentary dinner at Mezzo Italian Kitchen  &  Wine… more to blog about.  I’ll probably blog about dinner at Mezzo Italian Kitchen & Wine .   I will just drink the wine, won’t blog about it.

Edit 2014  Due to changes made by the real estate brokerage known as Real Living HER when this post was written which was formerly known as HER Realtors and became in 2013 again known as HER Realtors, the link went to the HER brokerge website rather than Judi’s HER website.  Nothing malicious but a tad annoying.  I broke the link.  Thanks Judi.  I should link to your new page. I could link to your new web page but…

Do you have more photos of the place? It looks like a dreary day in that one picture but the place looks really amazing!

Jane says “It looks like a dreary day in that one picture” it was twilight? Does it stay bright and sunny in Boston until the sun sets? We get something called twilight here…

I do have other pictures thanks. Did you just comment for the link?

Jane- The sun always shines on The Residences at Creekside from my perspective! Check out the website for some better pics of the pool. I will be having my dinner poolside again tonight!

Maureen-your blog story was well done but didn’t we tell you to keep Creekside a SECRET! Now we will have to kill you! Just teasing of course. Come back any time. Lol!

Thanks for the comment. I bet it is gorgeous there today, enjoy the beauty.

There is probably not a Jane. There is a luxury homes website / blog though.

What do they mean by “redefined”?

8 Maureen McCabe December 5, 2010 at 01:41 pm

While I don’t want to speak for the builder these condominiums are unlike other suburban living opportunities in Central Ohio.

A classy way to say different???
