The problem with the Short North…
If you live in the Short North, Italian Village, or Victorian Village, then we offer you our congratulations. You’re living in Columbus’s most lively area: culture, shops, restaurants, and a lot of people fill its streets. The benefits to living in the Short North seem almost endless, but, like anything, the Short North has its drawbacks. To name two, the parking can be a headache and it’s crowded as—well, it’s crowded.
If you’re living in a Short North apartment or rental, then you know how hard it can be sometimes to find extra space for all the extra stuff that you treasure. From your baseball card collection to your grandmother’s dining room table (and everything in between), things need space. What happens when your loft just can’t hold your extra belongings? Do you donate them? Throw them away? Push them off into the corner?
The usual storage war
Having a ton of extra stuff is such a headache. After you accumulate and account for all of it, there’s the hassle of finding a place to put it. Often times, it ends up being one of the huge commercial storage companies around town. We don’t want to say anything bad about these guys, but we will point out some obvious negatives.
We have to admit, seeing an ad for “$1 Storage” is pretty tantalizing. If only it were true! We’ve grown so sick of overly complex contracts over the years. Way too often, these “deals” are packed with hidden fees, cost spikes, and hard-to-escape contracts. That $1 rent was just a mask for downright crazy hidden fees.
But that’s not the only thing…
“You’re located where again?”
After borrowing your friend’s truck or renting out a U-Haul, you drive around for an hour trying to find where your storage actually is. We can assure you that it’s off some side street, maybe next to train tracks, and is anywhere but a centralized, convenient location.
Moreover, you find yourself waiting on gates, scanners, and locks just to get to your stuff. Can’t it be more easier than this? What if going to your storage unit meant driving down the block? What if you didn’t need to make a whole day out of getting to your own stuff?
Lykens is making storage simple
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.
