The Champion Companies To Break Ground on 300 Apartments in Delaware County

Partner Rockford Construction will begin construction on the Class A apartment community in Sunbury, Ohio next month

SUNBURY, Ohio (May 11, 2023) The Champion Companies, a multi-family investment, development and management firm in Central Ohio, today announced it will begin construction of The District at Berkshire in June of this year.

The 300-unit Class A development is next to the Tanger Outlet Mall in Sunbury and is anticipated to take about 24 months to complete. The project will include the construction of a new public road off of S. Wilson Rd., calling for future development in the area by opening access to other land zoned for the development of all asset classes.

“The District at Berkshire will sit in a major growth corridor in Central Ohio, an area that needs new housing units to meet the influx of demand and expand options for future renters,” said Brian Yeager, President and CEO of The Champion Companies.

In addition to an excellent location, future renters will enjoy modern amenities, such as a community pool, fitness center, dog park, indoor and outdoor resident lounge areas and added benefits like connecting walkways to the popular outlet mall for easy shopping and dining.

“The Champion Companies is excited to have chosen Rockford as our builder for this project. They have an impeccable reputation in our market and have been around for decades building in Central Ohio,” said  Yeager.

“Rockford Construction is excited to partner with The Champion Companies, one of the premier management and development companies in Ohio, on this project,” said Bob Yoakam, President and CEO of Rockford Construction. “The collaboration between Champion’s management and development expertise along with Rockford’s construction experience will lead to a successful project and partnership into the future.”
