    Can anyone recommend nice apartments/housing preferably in the Victorian Village, or any surrounding areas? I just relocated from South Florida for work, and do not know the area. I have heard that this area is a nice place to look. I am a young professional looking for a young, active area! Any recommendations would be greatly appreciated! Thank you! :)

    My thoughts exactly. People will spam you, scam you or worse. Especially since you are new to C-Bus, although that can be true anywhere.

    I just moved to VV last month. We did months of research on Craigslist and on Metro-Rentals. Depends on how many rooms you want as well. Hard to find a 1 bedroom here, however you can find some good 1 and 2 bedrooms in Harrison West for good prices. A friend of mine just moved into Village West apartments, they seem pretty decent.

    There is a great building on Tappan St., which is a cute one way brick street just one block south of Third, off Neil Ave. There are four one-bedroom units that are all being gutted down to the studs and rebuilt new! They rent for $850/month. I’ve lived in that area for four years, it’s a great neighborhood with even greater neighbors. You can’t ask for a nicer location in Columbus! :)

    Harrison West is really nice too (and conveniently located directly west of VV). Welcome to Columbus!

    You can try 580 N. Park St. (Park Royal Apartments). That’s where I live. They were completely gutted about 4 years ago with pretty descent quality. Rents are currently $705 for one bedroom units. They are a bit small but they are right in the middle of everything. Goodale Park is your front yard. Within a couple of blocks are the North Market, Park Street bars, Nationwide Arena, Convention Center, Short North, just to name a few. Many festivals take place in the area. Highway access is right down the street. It’s very safe as well. Contact Joseph Skilken Organization for any info. 224-5580. They currently have a “For lease” sign out front.

    Thanks Jon! I’m trying to get my username changed… Silly, but I didn’t realize that my username would be public like this when I signed up. Thanks for looking out! Just waiting for them to change it.

    I will check out http://www.metrorentals.com

    I was in town yesterday looking and it is so overwhelming. So many places to choose from!

    And thank you Shimmyknocker, Anillo and jpizzow- I will definitely look at those buildings as well.

    I am so excited to be moving to Columbus! It seems like a great town with great, friendly people!
    Thanks for all the help everyone!

    Make sure to come to a CU Happy Hour sometime to say hello. This group has been one of the best parts about moving here (I’ve been here five years and love it).

    I used to live in that building before I got booted for said renovations. I can attest that the location on Tappan is wonderful. Those renovations must be pretty nice though to charge $850/month on a 600 square foot apt. Maybe I was paying below market rent though, who knows.

    Welcome to Columbus!

    Good luck, we have a ton of great places to live, it may be hard to find a place.

    I noticed many new for rent signs in my hood in the Merion Village area. Stick to the north end of the hood (Hanford and North – http://www.merionvillage.org/neighborhood/mvmap.php) for close access to young active people. Full homes can rent for good prices here.
