Our Story

The Fairfax is the evolution of First Community Village, which has been a premier senior living community in Upper Arlington, Ohio, since 1963. When it came time to expand the First Community Village, a vision arose for a contemporary, new community that would offer its residents more freedom, eliminate the burdens of home ownership, and establish a culture of living life to the fullest, every day. That vision was The Fairfax.

Your Comfort Zone

Spacious residences, luxurious features, exclusive amenities—not to mention a nearby city, an abundance of activities, and a group of vibrant, cultured, highly social individuals looking to build something special together. That’s The Fairfax and First Community Village in a nutshell.

The Fairfax’s senior living features begin with the living spaces. With modern, open floor plans of up to 2,300 square feet, nine-foot ceilings, wide-windowed views, oversized balconies, gourmet kitchens, walk-in closets, and a whole lot moreeach home at The Fairfax is the epitome of comfort and style.

As for The Fairfax itself, the new senior housing design will feature English Country Manor architecture and a private, gated entrance. It will provide residents with a first-class senior living experience through its many amenities:

  • On-site spa
  • Fitness center
  • Underground heated parking
  • Dining center with chef-prepared meals
  • Grab-and-go bistro
  • Healthcare Center with Life Care
  • Indoor pool
  • Lush outdoor spaces 

Additionally, First Community Village’s campus offers a vibrant neighborhood setting, a full calendar of engaging activities, and naturally beautiful walking and biking trails—among other benefits. 

In the nearby area of Upper Arlington, you’ll find upscale shopping and dining, and in downtown Columbus you’ll enjoy cultural resources, the academic setting of The Ohio State University, winding paths along the Scioto River, and countless other things to do on your own or with friends and family.

Simply put, few new senior living apartments anywhere possess a blend of features, services, and amenities like those at The Fairfax.

The Next Generation of Senior Living

Most new senior living communities aren’t like this. For one thing, they aren’t tied to an existing community like First Community Village; The Fairfax’s bond with the established community provides priceless social connections, financial security, and a continuum of care for all residents’ health and wellness needs. 

Secondly, most other senior living communities don’t emphasize the enjoyment of life the way The Fairfax will, and First Community Village already does. The Fairfax is for people who want to thrive during their retirement years—if you’re someone who believes that the key word in “growing older” is “growing,” then this is the place for you.

The Fairfax Difference

It doesn’t take much to understand what sets The Fairfax apart. Take a tour of our website, and you’ll quickly realize the caliber of the features, the amenities, and the quality of life at this senior living community in Columbus. Peruse the photo gallery to see how The Fairfax’s grounds and homes will look (and perhaps even to envision yourself in them). 

While the next generation of residential retirement in Ohio won’t be here until 2021, that isn’t far away at all! In fact, many of The Fairfax’s 70 apartment homes are already reserved.

Choice floor plans and views are still available, however, and if you reserve your space today—with no obligation—you can enjoy low rates and unique benefits that those who wait will be unable to access.
