Welcome to our Apartment Communities page at Metro-Rentals!

Apartment communities are an important and integral part of every neighborhood in Columbus. Each community is as different as the neighborhood they are located in, giving you a wide range of lifestyle choices. Many apartment communities offer resident amenities and activities to help make your apartment a home.

Our Apartment Communities page gives you a short tour of each community, the types of homes available and a link to the company that manages your new community. Each of our community pages contains photos, detailed descriptions and often video tours of select homes. Once you’ve taken a virtual tour and decided that a certain community might be the right lifestyle for you, the contact information for the Leasing Office and Welcome Centers are listed. If you’d like to email rather than call, just click the “contact” button to fill out an inquiry.

To begin your tour, just click on the thumbnail photo below. Be sure to check back often to review new communities or view updated information on established homes!
