The Village Of New Albany

 
 
 
Founded in 1837, New Albany began as a small farming village just 20 minutes northeast of Columbus. In the 1980’s, Columbus native and CEO of Limited Brands, Les Wexner, began purchasing parcels of land in and around the village. His vision was to create a thriving community that upheld the elegant style and close-knit feel of a small rural town, while offering all the conveniences of a trendy suburban city. Les achieved this vision by designing inter-connected Ohio neighborhoods of sophisticated Georgian-style homes that reflected high standards of architectural design and quality finishes.

New Albany Ohio's Vast Outdoor Spaces

The careful planning of New Albany neighborhood communities balanced the use of land for residential, commercial, and recreational use. Hundreds of acres of land were preserved for neighborhood green spaces. Lakes, ponds and heavily wooded areas were strategically placed. And, miles of walking paths were constructed to link the neighborhoods to each other, as well as to the New Albany Country Club, the school campus and library, as well as fine dining and shopping venues. Offering a sense of style, yet comfort, mature trees and white fencing outline the walking paths and all that is considered New Albany.
