I've live at OV for 2.5 years and have really enjoyed living there. The neighborhood is great, it's conveniently located with easy access to buses and within walking or biking distance of shops, restaurants, etc. It's also right on the Olentangy River with easy access to the bike path. I will admit that I don't know my neighbors, but haven't had a problem with any of them.

However, I'm really frustrated with the new management's leasing policies. My lease ends Aug 31. We received a note in March/April encouraging us to renew early and save money (i.e., they wouldn't raise our rent by $100 per month). We received a note May 7 notifying us that if we don't renew by May 15 (remember, lease ends Aug 31) our apartment would be put on the market. Our two options are to renew for a full year (actually, 50 weeks because the new lease would terminate Aug 20) or leave. We don't know how long we'll be living in Columbus, and so we thought that maybe we would be able to extend on a month-to-month basis (you know, that option that most landlords have available for tenants that have lived in an apartment for more than one year). Nope. They don't do that. If we need to move out before our new lease terminates (Aug 20), we will have to sublet the apartment, as they will not break our lease - even if there are tenants to take our apartment. And we have to renew now because they have a waiting list for fall. How, exactly, is it proper to fill a waiting list with the intention of pushing out current residents (who, by the way, have always paid rent on time, never caused complaints, etc.)? The attitude is really frustrating, both from the upper management and the local office personnel who not only have no capacity to listen but do not return phone calls when their policies are questioned.

Bottom line: great place to live, but only if you're absolutely certain you need a place for 50 weeks, no more, no less.

Pros: Location, architecture, maintenance staff

Cons: Leasing office, management
