Experience Columbus Releases “Best Columbus Moments of 2020”

Throughout 2020, there were plenty of bright spots for the city of Columbus—and its residents—that helped bring some positivity to abnormal times. Experience Columbus detailed the top five moments in a new article. The top highlight? Columbus Crew’s rally to win the MLS Championship in December. The new Crew Stadium is slated to be completed in 2021, adding another exciting element to the Arena District.

Cbus sports is on a roll, and the excitement for Crew, Clippers and Blue Jackets fans will continue into 2021. Square in the middle of it all are residents of Arena District apartments—who enjoy walkability to all three stadiums, access to tons of nearby gameday hotspots and, best of all, the pulsating energy that fills the district following a big win.

 

Columbus Living

What’s Your Apartment’s Walkability Score?

Location is Everything! When considering the location of your next apartment home, consider researching the neighborhood’s walkability score. Neighborhoods are typically seen as having good walkability if they score 70 or above.

Based on walkscore.com, The Arena District walk score is 79—‘very walkable’—and has a bike score of 88—‘very bikeable’. With proximity to three major sports destinations and dozens of restaurants, bars, parks, and bike trails, it’s easy to see why apartments in the Arena District are a smart and exciting choice for active downtown Columbus residents.

Make the Most of Your Apartments Office Space

Nowadays, home isn’t just a place to lie your head at the end of the day—for many, it’s also become a temporary extension of your office. Turning your apartment into a functional office space can be difficult; that’s why Columbus Downtown Apartments developed this blog outlining how to make the most of your apartment office space. For example, if your space is starting to feel cramped, try seeking out apartments that offer floor plans with extra space, such as a one-bedroom with a den, as featured in Arena Crossing, Flats on Vine, Flats II and Apartments at the Yard.

Investing in the right desk, chair, shelves and storage should complement your furniture and décor. It’s important to have the necessary accessories to complete your space. If you currently have a roommate or partner, consider two- or three-bedroom floor plans—for the newest apartments in booming Grandview Heights, check out the Junction and Kipton buildings now.
