It’s been only a few weeks since tenants began moving into the newly renovated, historic Atlas Building Downtown, but already demand for some units has outstripped the available supply.
Several one and two bedroom floorplans are now completely leased, and many other have only a few units remaining.
One of the first skyscrapers built in Columbus during the early 20th century, the Atlas Building served for much of its life as prominent office space in the city’s core.
However with age, its allure lessened, until eventually the mostly vacant property fell into foreclosure in 2010.
The historic 12-story building at the Northeast corner of N High St and Long was then acquired and renovated with the assistance of federal and state historic tax credits into 98 apartments alongside ground-floor retail space over the past year.
Now, of the total 98 units – only 25 are still unspoken for and available for lease, according to leasing office representatives.
Joel Lilly, of developer Schiff Capital Group, said in a statement, “I’m excited we are in a position with our Atlas Apartments project to play a part in meeting the demand [for downtown housing].”
Many historic features were restored and retained in the renovation, including original marble flooring and staircases, the fanciful and ornate lobby area, and the stately building exterior.
