Since the 1990s, the village of New Albany has experienced rapid growth and expansion, due in large part to the residency of Les Wexner, founder of The Limited women’s clothing chain.

The village has managed its growth through planning and attention to detail. New Albany’s philosophy is that “it’s not just where we live, but how we live that defines our quality of life.” This philosophy has created a community that takes a well-rounded approach to life.

The area features a pedestrian-friendly village square with a library, restaurants, shops, and office space. All New Albany schools have been designated a national Blue Ribbon School of Excellence by the U.S. Department of Education. There are six hundred acres of public parks and green space, a state-of-the-art performing arts center, a 27-hole Jack Nicklaus-designed golf course, and 27 miles of leisure trails here.

Several top companies have headquarters in New Albany, including Abercrombie & Fitch, Tween Brands, Aetna Life Insurance, and Liberty Mutual.

Apartments in New Albany range from one-bedroom to two-bedroom units. Prices are significantly higher than average for rentals Columbus area.
