Donation to Berwick Civic Association to Celebrate Groundbreaking for Brookwood Point

Press Releases | March 24, 2022

Check presentation at construction site

COLUMBUS, Ohio – Celebration of the groundbreaking for Brookwood Point, a new $33 million senior community in Columbus, Ohio, was recognized with more than the ceremonial shoveling of earth. Additionally, a $6,000 donation was presented to the Berwick Civic Association. The gift from National Church Residences and general contractor Elford will provide support to the teachers and students of Berwick Elementary and for a local health event, as well as a matching food drive to fill the pantries that feed the hungry in the Berwick neighborhood, which will be home to Brookwood Point at 2687 East Livingston Avenue. The donation check was presented on March 22, 2022, at the development site.

National Church Residences’ newest property for middle- and moderate-income seniors will feature 103 independent living apartments with a mix of spacious one- and two-bedroom floor plans for seniors age 55 and older. Amenities will include chef-created dining, a fitness center, community room, club room, arts and crafts room, library, onsite surface parking and numerous outdoor active spaces, such as patios, pocket gardens and lush landscaping throughout the grounds. Scheduled for completion in the fall of 2023, Brookwood Point will be located close to Bexley’s downtown dining and shopping district and is situated across the street from Brownlee Park with close access to public transportation.

Brookwood Point is being built at the site of the former Brookwood Presbyterian Church. National Church Residences is paying homage to the church and the neighborhood by incorporating some of its architectural elements (including the stained-glass windows) in the building design and dedicating an entrance wall to the church’s and area’s history.

“Brookwood Presbyterian Church was a thriving part of this community, and we want to embrace what this church represented to the neighborhood,” said Melanie Wollenberg, director of senior housing development at National Church Residences. “We don’t want to lose that heritage. We want to honor it.”

Wollenberg added, “We designed Brookwood Point around a focus on wellness, independence and a sense of community for the residents. We’ll be hosting many community events at this facility and are working closely with the Berwick Civic Association.”

“The Berwick community is very grateful to National Church Residences and Elford for their gift,” said Bruce Black, president of the Berwick Civic Association and Neighborhood Pride Program Manager for the City of Columbus. “We are excited that this new senior housing development will continue to enhance our neighborhood and our Livingston Avenue corridor.”

Strong local partnerships made Brookwood Point possible, including Columbus City Council’s approval of a
15-year, 100% tax abatement, spearheaded by Councilwoman Shayla Favor, the Hospital Commission of Franklin County, who provided up to $27 million in bond financing, which was purchased by First Midwest Bank, general contractor Elford and architectural firm Berardi Partners.
