Jeffrey Place Lofts LLC. breaks ground with new residences in Italian Village

            In the Italian Village District of Columbus, just blocks from the Short North entertainment and arts district, a new residential site called Jeffrey Place Lofts is in steady progression since construction started in June.  The Jeffrey Place development marks an innovative approach to life in Columbus because of its unique attitude toward urban living.  A hallmark of this vision is its loft space, designed by Acock Associate Architects and being built by Albert M. Higley Construction.
            The project feels contemporary; with features such as skylights and exposed structural bracing that make the lofts’ communal spaces unique.  Acock says that, “Richness in materials and flexibility of use are the keys to the building’s aesthetic.”  Glass walkways through the center of the building ensure the presence of natural light and a distinctive ambiance for residents.  Each unit boasts eighteen-foot glass walls, customized design options, in-building heated parking, and large private roof-top terraces, where residents have the space and opportunity to garden—a luxury uncommon in the usual constraints of urban settings.  Heavy steel construction with glass, metal, and brick exterior bring modernity to the space and a new look to the city of Columbus.
            At the project’s conception, its developers had a specific vision that included the aforementioned modern edge and new attitude.  But the spokesman for the company, Joe Recchie, says that they also believed, “The unique advantage of a master-planned community is the ability to design the block and building with the best unobstructed views and natural light access.”  With a clear span for construction, buyers can easily customize their own spaces and merge their vision with the larger Jeffrey Place vision. Yet another bonus to a “master-planned community” is area across from the lofts with a park and public plaza, conceptualized and soon-to-be built by the design and construction team of National Community Builders , Acock Architects, and Albert M. Higley Construction.
            The lofts are a $12 million project that span over a total of 51, 850 square feet, with an average unit price of $398,900, but starting as low as $298,500.  There will be thirty residential units, as well as three boutique and retail spaces.  The current marketing of the lofts runs out of Jeffrey Place Sales Center at 350 E. First Ave.  The project also has a useful website: www.jeffreyplace.com.  Information on the architect, the construction company, and the neighborhood can be accessed at www.acock.com, www.amhigley.com, and www.shortnorth.org, respectively.
