A representative of Preferred Living, a central Ohio residential property developer, presented Marble Cliff Village Council March 19 with the company's desire to build a high-end residential development on the former Custom Coach property on Dublin Road.

Nick King, a vice president with Preferred Living, said the company's concept is for building a pair of four-story buildings with a total of between 200 and 250 units.

The property would be similar to the company's Kenyon Square development located near Polaris Parkway, he said.

That development's units rent from $8,000 to $12,000 or $13,000 each month, but the Marble Cliff development would likely have higher rates, King said.

The property would have to be rezoned to allow a residential development, Mayor Kent Studebaker said.

Council members expressed general interest in the concept, although some said they were concerned about eliminating the site from possible future commercial development.

King said he would plan to bring back at least a couple of possible site plans and more information for council to review at its April meeting.
