OPRS Breaks Ground on $30M Addition to Seniors Community
By Adrian Maties, Associate Editor
Westminster-Thurber, one of 11 retirement communities owned and managed by Ohio Presbyterian Retirement Services, has been serving Central Ohio for the last 48 years. Now, Westminster-Thurber plans a $30 million addition just north of Downtown Columbus. OPRS broke ground for the project Dec. 4 at 717 Neil Ave.
Residents can choose from eight different floor plans for one- and two-bedroom units. Ranging in size from 1,140 to 2,000 square feet, the apartments will feature open layouts, four-season sun rooms, balconies, fully equipped kitchens, individually controlled heating and air conditioning and laundry facilities.
Community amenities include concierge services, a heated underground garage, a community center and a rooftop terrace. An indoor walkway will link Goodale Landing to the existing campus. Also on tap are a new indoor heated pool and a new dining venue.
Monthly rents at Goodale Landing will start from $2,450, with an entrance fee of $175,000. Only six of the 68 units are unreserved, OPRS Communities said in a statement.
