As one explores the many wonders of Downtown Loveland there are so many things to take in; historic architecture, picturesque scenery, phenomenal restaurants, charming antique shops and a brand new luxury apartment community cleverly named Loveland Station. Railroads were a prominent feature of Loveland’s foregone years and a historic train station is adjacent to Loveland Station.
Loveland Station, located at the corner of West Loveland Ave. and 2nd Street, only one block from the Little Miami Scenic River and right next to the Loveland Bike Trail, came onto the Downtown scene in 2015. This beautifully structured 3 floor apartment complex including 94 units and nearly 200 residents was developed by Jim Cohen, CMC Property President, in hopes that the complex would open more doors for future developments and provide Loveland with more uses for its outstanding amenities.
Loveland Station encompasses upscale finishes and the popular “open concept living” attracting two of the largest demographics in the country, millennials and baby boomers. Each unit includes an open kitchen with granite counter tops, brushed nickel features throughout the unit, garden bathtubs, full size washer and dryer connections, cable and 9 foot ceilings. In addition to all of the upscale features included in these luxurious units more than half of the units also include a balcony that overlooks Downtown Loveland and gigantic walk-in closets! Resident Sean Clark commented on the luxury finishes saying, “the apartments are very nice with big bathrooms, granite counters and great appliances.”
Unlike most modern apartments, Loveland Station offers a number of floor plans. The Station offers One Bed One Baths ranging between 700 and 836 square feet pricing between 945 and 1,135 dollars as well as Two Bed Two Baths ranging between 943 and 1415 square feet pricing between 1,195 and 1,705 dollars. The Loveland Station community also offers Three Bed Two Bath units, which are 1,455 square feet and price between 1,675 and 1,735 dollars. When residents were asked about the floors plans they gave nothing but rave reviews. “The property is immaculately maintained. The floor plan is open and spacious and everything I need is right there,” resident Cori Drenning said.
One of the biggest bonuses of living in the Loveland Station community according to residents is the amenities offered within the complex as well as the amenities surrounding the complex. “You have direct access to the bike trail and river. There’s also an awesome business center that I occasionally rent for Young Entrepreneur Club Meetings,” tenant Alex Boyd said. Alex has lived at Loveland Station for 9 months and is a very successful entrepreneur, having opened his own business called the Vapor Studio located in Maineville.
The pet-friendly complex definitely doesn’t fall short on amenities giving residents access to a state of the art 24 hour fitness center, a pristine business center and lounge with free Wi-Fi, trash valet, complimentary bike storage and garages with remote controlled access. Within the Loveland Station complex residents can enjoy several local retailers and restaurants, such as Graeters, The Casual Pint, Bella’s, Busy Bee Boutique and Vertical Drop that incorporate the community’s themes of family, fitness and romance. “Loveland Station is a cool place with lots of entertainment within walking distance. If dining and nightlife is your thing, it’s definitely worth looking into living here,” resident Steve Beamer said.
Although the Loveland Station didn’t get the best response from the community at first due to concerns such as the complex not blending in with the areas historic landscaping and traffic congestion, the Loveland station has proven to be nothing but a positive addition to the area creating additional jobs, tax revenues and an economic boost for the city. Loveland Station Property Manager, Jessica McCallum couldn’t agree more.
“Our company is all about the residents! I really enjoy getting to know all of our residents and their families, even their furry family members! I just love when they bring their dogs to the office for a special treat! I think that knowing my residents names makes them feel good. I look at Loveland Station as part of my extended family, that goes for all of Loveland Station, the people who work here, who live here, and the retail workers as well,” Jessica said.
Creating that Work-Live-Play atmosphere within the Loveland Station complex that new Downtown Loveland residents are seeking, according to Jessica, has aided in the complex’s success placing the Station community at 100 percent occupancy with quite a waiting list for the next available unit. “I love the people here! They make managing the Loveland Station so easy,” Jessica said with pride.
The Loveland Station Complex has brought a whole new “Suburban Urban” vibe to Downtown Loveland as well as a noticeable positive impact on the economy and a plethora of opportunities for the community.
