Addendum to my above statement: Scratch Deer Run. I mistakenly posted that when I was referring to a different community called The Lakes, as Gallygrad08 mentioned.

What do you want her to do - turn down the job? Since all the office jobs are being consolidated into the new GE office complex at Union Centre and Cin-Day Road, it stands to reason that's where she'll be working - not exactly on a busline, and there aren't any decent townhome communities nearby from which she could walk to work. Would you have her live downtown, or further south in Cincinnati? How would that help the gas situation?

But it was lil bit pricy for me since this will be my first job after college, and I got to pay back some college loans. I might be willing to pay $1100 max is some utilities are included.

As for now I am leaning towards

My current list:

Prince Frederick

Lakota Pointe

Reserve at Pines / Pines
- Whats the difference between these two ? They are listed as separate. Can anyone clarify?


I just removed North Pointe from my list. I heard its a bad area to live.

I am thinking if Tyler's Creek deserve a place in the list



Feel free to add to the list or comment on my list.
Tyler's Creek is brand new - having been built only within the past couple of years. I've been by there, and they are very nice. The Bridgewater Falls lifestyle center would only be a couple of miles up Bypass 4 and would handle all your shopping needs. Great place, by the way. I really like it up there - tons of shops to go through. You'd also be close to a couple of major Kroger grocery stores.

As for the difference between Pines and Reserve at Pines....not sure. They're both at the same location and owned by the same company. It could just be that "Pines" is the name of the original section (older buildings) while "Reserve at Pines" is a newer section. Or maybe "Pines" is apartments only, while "Reserve at Pines" is the townhomes.

A perfect example of what I'm talking about: In 1986, I moved into a community called "Anderson Landing" in Delhi Township. It was a relatively new apartment building, but that's all they were. Within a couple of years, they built "Anderson Oaks" - condos. Same street, just different location on the property.

No, I would recommend you pick a close place if you are driving, it is best not to drive as far

That is right. I would prefer within 7 miles, but if the place is really nice may be its worth going upto 15 miles away from GE.

Thanks once again.

I agree. I guess I'm not sure why you wrote your last post, considering some of the communities I mentioned are within 5 miles of where the new GE office complex will be located at Union Centre and Cin-Day Road.

Honestly, if she were going to be working closer to Cincinnati, I'd be the first person to help her find a community down in that direction....yes, even if it were downtown.
