Celebrating the Grand Opening of Brookwood Point

Press Releases | March 28, 2024

National Church Residences newest senior community ribbon cutting.

COLUMBUS, Ohio ­– National Church Residences announces the opening of Brookwood Point, a new $27 million senior community located in the Berwick neighborhood of Columbus, with a mix of housing options for older adults ages 55 and older. Located at 2687 East Livingston Avenue, Brookwood Point is National Church Residences’ newest property featuring 103 independent living apartments, 68 of which are one bedroom and 35 are two bedrooms.

U.S. Congresswoman Joyce Beatty (District 3), Ohio Senator Hearcel Craig (Assistant Minority Leader of the Ohio Senate, District 15), and Dontavius Jarrells (Assistant Minority Leader of the Ohio House of Representatives, District 1), were among those who joined National Church Residences President and CEO Susan DiMickele and other organization leaders to celebrate the newest senior living community.

“I’m incredibly proud to open another community in Central Ohio that provides a secure and welcoming home for older adults,” said DiMickele. “With each new community we open, we’re ensuring more older adults have a home to age with dignity, in a neighborhood where they’ve lived for years surrounded by friends and loved ones.”

Congresswoman Beatty explained that that they were not just celebrating the opening of the building, but the promise of a vibrant and fulfilling future for all who call Brookwood Point home. She added, “Within these walls, some 100 residents will find not just a place to live but a place to thrive. This is a space designed to nurture connections, foster well-being and to inspire joy.”

Brookwood Point is situated on the site of the former Brookwood Presbyterian Church on the east side of Columbus, adjacent to Bexley on Livingston Avenue in Columbus, Ohio. Multiple floor plan options were incorporated to ensure a variety of price points and unit types. The City of Columbus provided a tax abatement which allowed the community to provide rents at various affordability levels.

While speaking to more than 150 guests attending the grand opening, Senator Craig stated, “We value National Church Residences and what they’re doing for this community.”

Representative Jarrells declared that the relationship linking housing to jobs and transportation is an important step in building more impactful affordable housing across the metro area. “It’s a whole system working alongside housing that really makes it a home.”

Amenities at Brookwood Point include chef-created culinary dining, a well-appointed community room for events, an on-site fitness center, a club room for social gatherings with friends and family, a dedicated arts and crafts room, a game room, a library, year-round life enrichment activities, paid utilities (including basic cable and free campus-wide Wi-Fi), housekeeping and linen service, patios, pocket gardens and lush landscaping. Brookwood Point also is a pet-friendly community. Plus, in addition to the on-site parking, there’s easy access to public transportation, Brownlee Park and the location is within walking distance to Bexley’s dining and shopping district on Main Street.

Brookwood Point Presbyterian Church had served the Berwick community since 1948. National Church Residences paid homage to the church’s history by decorating an entire wall in an entryway with memorabilia including photos, a ceremonial groundbreaking shovel, stained-glass windows as well as many other items.

Nathan Salmon, elder of the former Brookwood Presbyterian Church, said that he had been shown renderings of Brookwood Point, but those depictions pale in comparison to the actual community. “This is a beautiful building that we hope can be a place that the community can come to for many, many years.”

This new community was developed by architectural firms Berardi Partners and The Jones Studio along with Columbus-based Elford, Inc. providing general contractor services. Financial support was provided by the Hospital Commission of Franklin County (bond issuer), Old National Bank (perm loan lender and bond purchaser) – and from the City of Columbus (tax abatement).
