Short North Real Estate

The Short North Arts District is the art + soul of Columbus. The Short North Arts District is the most vibrant spot in the City of Columbus and is home to over 300 exciting businesses, the majority of which are locally owned or headquartered. It has received numerous national accolades, is considered a model for urban revitalization, and is the art and soul of Columbus.

The Short North includes: Italian Village, Victorian Village, Harrison West, Jeffrey Place and the Circles. Ohio State is immediately north and downtown and the Convention Center is immediately south. Wooden arches lit by gaslight were built to both light the streets and dazzle visitors. Steel and electric lights replaced the arches in 1896, but in 1916 they were torn down and replaced by light posts. In 2002, almost 100 years later, 17 steel arches were reinstalled on High Street from Goodale to Fifth Avenue, giving the Short North Arts District its identifying feature.
