Champion Acquires Carson Farms, Expands Delaware, Ohio Multi-Family Portfolio.
Columbus, OH– On August 19, 2014, Champion became the new owner and manager of The Traditions at Carson Farms in Delaware, Ohio. The 157-unit apartment community is brand new with construction finalized earlier in 2014.
“We are thrilled to add Carson Farms to our family of communities,” Brian Yeager, Champion’s president and CEO, said. “Carson Farms is a Class A apartment complex in a booming city. Our team is ready to hit the ground running to mold this community into another quality Champion property.”
Located off of Rt. 23 in Delaware, just east of Ohio Wesleyan University, Carson Farms is surrounded by beautifully landscaped grounds tucked away inside a housing development. The community offers two bedroom garden-style apartments, as well as two and three bedroom townhomes, all of which include an attached garage. The apartment homes also feature fully-equipped kitchens, including a microwave, washer and dryer connections, white trim, black appliances and some include a screened patio or balcony. The community clubhouse offers residents a resort-style swimming pool, a 24-hour fitness center and a movie theatre.
Carson Farms is the second apartment community in Delaware that will be owned and managed by Champion. The company acquired Troy Farms, a 304-unit complex, back in May of 2013.
“Delaware County is the fastest growing county in Ohio,” Yeager said. “With the recent growth in population, we have seen a high demand for apartments and Carson Farms is one of only a few apartment communities to be built in Delaware, Ohio in the last 10 years. We feel Delaware, Ohio will be a strong rental market for years to come.”
Carson Farms is just minutes from downtown Delaware, allowing its residents to enjoy a lifestyle of convenience with many nearby shopping and dining establishments, including the city’s unique, historic business district.
With the addition of Carson Farms, Champion’s management portfolio has expanded to include more than 4,100 apartments within 15 communities in the growing cities of Canal Winchester, Delaware, Dublin, Gahanna, Grove City, Hilliard, Lewis Center (Polaris), New Albany, Powell and Westerville.
