Keystone Apartments open and ready for leasing

Developer Nationwide Realty Investors Ltd.has opened the first phase of apartments at its Keystone mixed-use complex at Grandview Yard.

Thirty-six of 42 resident units will be occupied this week in one of three connected buildings.

“Not a bad start at all,” Nationwide Realty Marketing Manager Emily Garvey told me.

The next batch of 36 units will be opened to tenants this Friday with the last 42-unit phase set for completion on Nov. 20.

Rents for one-bedroom units in The Keystone on Yard begin at $1,128 per month while the two-bedroom units begin at $1,622 per month.

The four-story project offers 28,000 square feet of commercial space on its ground floor.

So far, no office or retail leases have been signed. The space will be ready for occupancy in December.

The Keystone marks second phase of apartments within the 100-acre section of Grandview Yard as part of redevelopment of the former Grandview Heights industrial district.

Garvey said all but three of the 154 Apartments at the Yard are leased.
