Construction Continues on the Verena at Hilliard Active Adult Cottages in Hilliard, Ohio

Holland, OH, November 17, 2023 – General Contractor, The Douglas Company, is proud to announce progress in the construction of Verena at Hilliard Cottages in Hilliard, Ohio. The $14.8 million construction project will be the company’s first with developer Green Courte Partners.

The 11 single-story cottage buildings were designed by Architect Bob Webb and have 4-6 units per building, for a grand total of 53 units. The project is located adjacent to Green Courte Partner’s existing Verena at Hilliard Luxury Independent  Living Retirement Community and is being constructed in order to complement its existing Independent Living Community as well as to provide a unique offering of Active Adult Rental Cottages where residents will enjoy spacious, well-appointed floor plans, attached garages, landscaped yards, and their own community Pickleball Court.

The newly constructed Active Adult Rental Cottages have an expected completion date of September 2024 with the first buildings available for lease in March 2024. These cottages are conveniently located near to the Hilliard branch of the Columbus Metropolitan Library, many shopping plazas, restaurants, entertainment venues, public golf courses, and the Mount Carmel Hilliard health campus.

“We are excited to bring the Verena at Hilliard Active Adult Cottages to the city of Hilliard and, similar to the city’s mission, provide its residents with another place they can be proud to call home,” Alan Kluczynski, Assistant Project Manager for the Douglas Company, said.
