My fiancee and I are looking for an apartment in the University area that is not party central for college kids. We are new graduate school grads (24 and 26) and looking for a nicer place in that area, as thats where a majority of her clients will be. We are from out of state as well so we are not too familiar with the city.. Any suggestions of apartments or streets to look on would be helpful! Or if there are no places that will not be overrun by kids then any advice where to look? Thanks!

Worthington looks nice. Might be a little pricey for us to start tho. Probably looking for 800-900 2 bedroom place ideally...

still go and check them out...they might be running specials or have a model priced where you want it to be...with the economy down these apartment companies are open to bargaining

I'm at Colonial Grand Mallard Creek. A 2BR/2 Bath with a garage is $900. There are some students here, but mostly it's professionals and even some retirees.

Before buying, I lived in a 3 BR townhouse at Radbourne Lake. It is located at the end of David Cox Rd at WT Harris Blvd. It is gated, heavily wooded, and was always well maintained. I saw maybe one kid there the whole year that I lived there. The place was surprisingly quiet for the location. I think we paid $950 (was a special rate for that year) for the townhouse (2 story, private covered patio). When I left a couple years ago, they were in the process of renovating the units. Good luck in what you find.

Radbourne Lake looks pretty nice, I think we may go and check that one out. Anyone have any idea what the travel time would be on a weekday to get from South Park to University area vs. concord to the university area?

Concord is about 15 min. Southpark could take 45 minutes or more depending on traffic.

We lived for approx three years in Bexley Creekside apartments, at the intersection of sugar creek and wt Harris. The rent was approx $800 for 2 bed/2 bath apmt, including the washer/dryer. The apt complex has a mini golf course and a nice walking trail around it. Most of the people were singles and professionals. There were a couple of families with kids though, and in the summer evenings, everyone would come out to the golf course. Kids would ride their bicycles on the trail, and people wud let their dogs run free on the course!! (which technically wasnt allowed!!!) All in all, it was a fun place to be. However, one downside, that we felt, was that the university area is quite crime-prone. Even though the apt complex is gated, there were still break-ins. However, this is true for most apt complexes.
