First, a bit about Lykens Companies…
With 20 years (and counting) of experience, we believe that Lykens Companies is just getting started on its mission to offer Columbus hundreds of premier apartments, rentals, and renovations. Each day, we are driving toward constantly expanding and improving our business and bettering Columbus, the city we love. For our renters, that means that they are connected to a proven business that is always striving to be the best. Our success isn’t an accident. We are constantly striving to improve our quality, both in the buildings that we renovate, reimagine, and rent out; moreover, we are striving to improve in the way that our business operates. For you, that means the best units and the best service in the best locations.
As we invest our time, money, and energy into the Short North, Victorian Village, Italian Village, and other parts of Columbus’s urban core, it’s nothing short of amazing to step back and see how much we’re able to impact our city, whether that looks like renovating apartments, houses, or even factories like the Wonder Bread Lofts and the forthcoming Budd Dairy project: a full scale reimagining of an old dairy factory into a Cameron Mitchell food hall and state-of-the-art coworking space.
If you’re looking to rent in Columbus, Ohio’s urban core, you’ve come to the right place. Below, you’ll find some of our favorite Short North listings for September 2018, but if you don’t see anything here that you love, be sure to see our other available rentals.
But back to our rentals…
In the Short North, Italian Village, Victorian Village, and other central Columbus, Ohio neighborhoods, it’s becoming harder and harder to find the perfect apartment or rental. At Lykens Companies, we’re battling against the wave of overpriced and underwhelming apartments and rentals. With us, you’ll find high quality apartments inside incredible areas with fair prices. Here are some of our best.
1312 Dennison Avenue
$1050/month | 1BR/1BA + Off-Street Parking
This 1BR/1BA apartment packs a punch. First, let’s applaud its open concept living area. A bright and cheerful front room is illuminated by elegant lighting. Its open concept leads us to a high quality kitchen: maple cabinetry pairs with granite counter work—and even a gas range. Moreover, we’ve installed high-quality stainless steel appliances for an elegant feel. This unit’s bathroom embraces modern styling and features a unique vanity, jaw-dropping floor to ceiling tiling, and a sleek glass shower door. We haven’t even mentioned the location! Just north of 5th Avenue, this unit embraces the culture of the Short North, finding itself near all the action, while still being within walking distance to The Ohio State University. Furthermore, an off-street parking spot is included in the lease and the unit features a stacked washer and dryer and a dishwasher. For this price, it’s an unbelievable deal. Rent today.

409 W. 5th Avenue
$1144/month | 1BR/1BA + Off-Street Parking
What’s it like to live inside an old pizzeria? Apparently, it means that you’ll be left with a spacious open concept. From its front door to its port window, there’s just nothing like this in Victorian Village. This unique build was updated just last year and features cozy carpeting, a great kitchen, and a huge bedroom. This single standing home has central heating and cooling, parking, a full basement, and washer/dryer hookups. Sitting next to Battelle, Lennox Shopping Center, Grandview, Ohio State, and the Short North isn’t bad either. You’re never going to find in a place like this again. Why not see if it fits your needs? Contact email@example.com for more information today!
843 N. Fourth Street
$1350/month | 2BR/1BA + Off-Street Parking
This 2BR/1BA townhome lives on the most hopping strip in Columbus: North Fourth Street. Just across the street from Hoof Hearted and only a quick walk from Wonder Bread and Budd Dairy, you won’t have to go far to find something to do. It’s absolutely a fun place to live (and we’re giving off-street parking, too). On its interior, this rental will drop your jaw. Exposed brick walls and ceilings offer rustic flavor. Moreover, hardwood flooring furthers its unique personality. Upstairs, a library ladder leads to extra bedroom storage. This townhome is made for adults, but trust us, its unique atmosphere makes you feel like a kid again (in the best way possible).

Wonder Bread Loft #105
$1685/month | 2BR/1BA + Off-Street Parking
If you know anything about Lykens Companies, then you probably know us for our work with Wonder Bread Lofts. We completely revitalized this former bread factory and made it into a collection of 66 unique luxury lofts with history in mind. For all the open concept lovers, we’re offering a massive living space and an open air second story loft to make this unit dynamic and perfect for you. Its brick floors pay homage to the factory’s original flooring material and serve as a reminder of its renovated history. An emphasis on exposed ductwork adds industrial-chic personality. As with all the Wonder Bread Lofts, this 1BR/1BA unit comes equipped with a high efficiency furnace, stainless steel appliances (microwave, dishwasher, and energy efficient refrigerator), high ceilings, mocha finished maple cabinets, granite countertops, and a high efficiency washer and dryer. Suite 105 features exposed ductwork, brick flooring, a skylight, and a second floor loft. Contact us today at email@example.com for more information or to schedule a showing!
212 W. Hubbard Avenue
$1660/month | 2BR/1BA + Off-Street Parking
When residents tell us about their experience in this unit, they talk about how it feels like an escape from the busyness of the world. Yet, in the same breath, they tell us how much they loved living near the hustle and bustle of the Short North just a few steps away. This 1BR/1BA Hubbard Avenue rental features garage parking in the middle of Victorian Village. A quick walk leads you to Goodale Park and all of the life and culture in the Short North: restaurants, shops, clubs, and more. We love this unit’s vaulted ceilings—they create a cheerful sense of space. Moreover, a renovated kitchen with a bar is perfected by granite counters. Warm hardwood flooring and plenty of windows bring joy and life to the atmosphere. The kitchen has maple cabinets, granite countertops and high efficiency stainless appliances (W/D, stove, built-in microwave, dishwasher). Contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org to schedule a showing today.
