The Grandview Heights Community
Grandview Heights is the place to be. If I had to choose one word to describe Grandview Heights, that would be flourishing. From charming tree-lined streets to the bustling districts of entertainment, shops, and restaurants, our community is a place residents are proud to call home. Whether you are strolling along lively Grandview Avenue, savoring a bite to eat at one of the many top rated restaurants, or enjoying the sounds of summer at Grandview Yard, the welcoming nature of our community is evident. Our quality of life is spectacular not only because of things to do and the front porch culture that is quintessential Grandview Heights, but for our commitment to education as well. Grandview Heights Schools is one of the oldest school districts in the area with a proven track record of success.
Bordering downtown Columbus, the Village of Marble Cliff to the west and Upper Arlington to the north, the proximity of Grandview Heights to the Central Ohio region allows residents and visitors access to various entertainment districts and hubs around Columbus within minutes. Our location also allows for participation in regional initiatives, transportation loops, and to play an active part in significant changes happening along the northwest corridor of the city.
The revitalization of Grandview Heights, including the mixed use development of Grandview Yard, has opened doors to new businesses and industries. The former 100-acre brownfield with large industrial warehouses is now home to 1.2 million square feet of commercial space with offices, restaurants, hotels, an event center, and fitness centers. In addition, the development has added over 1,000 residential units including apartments, condominiums and single family homes. Another significant addition to the community is the development of the Dublin Road/Grandview Avenue area. We look forward to the construction of Grandview Crossing. The site of a former landfill, this cross-jurisdictional project is slated to yield a new hotel and commercial activity on approximately 53 acres.
Visitors initially come to play, but many find it is a desirable place to stay. Our community is comprised of lifelong residents, newer residents we’ve welcomed recently, and many in between. Our housing styles suit needs for every life cycle stage. We represent many voices uniting, and have something for all ages.
I hope you will come discover the tremendous amenities Grandview Heights has to offer or attend our many events planned throughout the year. One of my favorite events is Tour de Grandview, a bike race showcasing our neighborhoods. We invite you to explore Grandview Avenue at one of our Grandview Hops on the last Saturday of June, July, August, and September. Visit our website for a full activity list.
See you soon,
