Get to know New Albany

New Albany is a master-planned community that rose out of a tiny rural hamlet, expanding from a population of about 400 people in 1980 to more than 10,000 today. It’s now one of Columbus’s most sought-after suburbs, with country club neighborhoods surrounding the Jack Nicklaus-designed golf course that showcase the many beautiful Georgian manors nestled among tree-lined streets. There are townhomes, apartments, and smaller houses available in the town center and subdivisions as well. New Albany’s rapid growth came about because of one man: fashion mogul Les Wexner. In the late 1980s, Wexner was looking to build a country house and happened upon New Albany. He eventually bought more than 10,000 acres—the entire town and then some—and transformed the village into a suburban powerhouse with a 4,000-acre business park that houses Amazon, Facebook, and Google offices, as well as a 200-acre community campus for the local schools.

“Columbus is a town in which almost anything is likely to happen and in which almost everything has,” wrote native son James Thurber. It’s true that Columbus, in its own unassuming way, has grown into a great metropolis, with something for almost everyone. Columbus is Ohio’s state capital and is also the center of Buckeye pride. Columbus is home to The Ohio State University, the state’s flagship, and the Buckeyes are a college football powerhouse. This is a town that roars on game day and if you hear someone yelling O-H, better yell back I-O. But Columbus is much more than football and the university. It’s also thriving economically, home to multinational and Fortune 500 headquarters, a flourishing tech scene with both outposts of established companies and an expanding start-up culture, and a strong manufacturing sector. Greater Columbus comprises ten counties, which includes farmland, quaint villages, lakefront living, planned communities, traditional suburbs, and grand exurbs.
