Townsend Construction and Oakwood Management Company have partnered to build something special at Beulah Place. They took the principles important in today’s market – the where and how people want to live – and made it their mission. And not just some of it, but all of it – lifestyle considerations, innovative designs, high-end amenities, connections, community and an uncompromising commitment to kindness and quality. Executing on the vision and now the heart of it all is Beulah Place’s Beth Kelley.

And now, let us introduce you to Beth.

Tell us about your role in the Beulah Park re-development. As the property manager for Beulah Place, luxury apartments, I will be overseeing the day-to-day operations of the site. There really is not anything a property manager doesn’t do! I am excited to build a great community here at Beulah Place and for my future residents and I to connect with the overall Beulah Park development as a whole.

What has brought you the most enjoyment? My inspiration has come from previous communities I have managed and former residents of mine. Going from 600 residents to starting at a new lease up – I can’t wait to get to know each and every resident who moves here. With every new application, I get very excited for the future of Beulah Place and welcoming each person home to a new beginning here with us.

 What has been the biggest challenge? Construction delays and COVID. I love being busy and being around people. I miss having residents to take care of. It’s been a slow (& lonely) fall and winter here in the office, but things have already picked up significantly and I CAN’T WAIT to start moving people in this month and our world eventually getting back to “normal.” 

Looking to the future of Beulah Park, what gets you most excited? Beulah Park has so much to offer. It’s going to be truly amazing in a year to see all Beulah Park living communities filled with residents who will have everything at their fingertips. I am most excited for everyone who chooses to live here. The connectivity and walkability of it all is like nothing else in and around Columbus, Ohio. I am happy and proud to be a part of it.
