The next generation of independent living options for active Columbus seniors is on its way! The Bailey at Bridge Park by Friendship Village of Dublin is scheduled to open Fall 2023.
We’re excited to a announce that Friendship Village of Dublin has partnered with real estate developer Crawford Hoying to bring this luxury senior rental housing concept to Bridge Park in downtown Dublin, Ohio.
Developed entirely by Crawford Hoying, Bridge Park is a walkable community less than a mile north of our campus. Its 30 acres along the Scioto River contain luxury condos, townhomes and apartments, plus restaurants, shops, office space, entertainment venues, 2,000+ free parking spaces, multiple green spaces and North Market Bridge Park.
The only thing this high-end community lacks is a dedicated building for individuals 55 and older. And that’s where The Bailey fits in.
“This project represents another milestone in our 40-year history,” said Executive Director Rita Doherty. “This 88-apartment unit will be our fifth residential option for independent living.”
New Luxury Rental Apartments for Active Columbus Seniors
Located just south of the new Springhill Suites Hotel between Dale Drive and Mooney Street, The Bailey at Bridge Park will offer a variety of luxury senior living rental options.
“Many Columbus seniors don’t want to be tied down to maintenance and the hassles of owning a home,” Rita said. “They are looking to live more intentionally and to enjoy an active lifestyle, with access to care when the need arises.
“Bridge Park is the perfect place to bring this lifestyle to life.”
Research revealed local demand for rental housing among seniors ages 75 to 85 who want to lessen the burden of maintaining a home while living in a residence that comes with a health-related safety net for inevitable future health care needs.
However, some seniors in this group are not interested in moving to a LifeCare community like Friendship Village of Dublin, at least to start. They are more attracted to a mixed-use environment with “no strings” rentals.
“This new rental option at The Bailey at Bridge Park offers a right-sized living accommodation in an upscale, walkable social setting,” Rita said. “It also will provide residents the comfort of knowing they can transition to the main campus when the time is right.”
No Strings Senior Rental Housing with a Health-Related Safety Net
Based on the research findings, FVD and Crawford Hoying are planning well-appointed, move-in ready apartments in a multi-story building that is pet friendly and smoke free, with a garden area and safe underground parking.
Rents will range from $3,500 to $5,500 per month, depending on the size of the unit. Residents can choose to become members of our Friendship at Home concierge care program.
An onsite resident services coordinator will be available to assist with social activities, fitness and wellness, plus coordination of health services as needed.
Scheduled transportation, valet-type services and many amenities within the Bridge Park community round out this special senior living experience.
A simplified rental arrangement eases transition to our main campus when/if the time is right.
