Easton Commons is an upscale multifamily apartment project located at the Easton living/shopping/entertainment development. Easton Commons is situated just south of and across a boulevard from Easton’s retail hub, Easton Towne Center. This location makes it an easy walk to the one of the most prominent retail meccas in central Ohio. This proximity is one of the key developmental ingredients that permitted the high level of design detail considerations to be incorporated into Easton Commons’ planning and architecture.
The complexity of Easton Commons’ site planning requires 42 unique floor plans to solve every possible curve and corner condition present in the project. These plans range from 600 to 1200 sq. ft. divided among choices between first floor flats, with or without attached garages, and second and third floor town homes with detached garages. Entries alternate along the street facades between fluted doric porticos and thick stone recessed archways. The unit interiors further celebrate American traditional design with embellishments like six panel wood doors, high flat ceilings with transom windows, ceramic tile entry floors and arched top double-hung windows.
David B. Meleca completed this project prior to joining Moody Nolan as the Director of Classical Design.
Phase 1: 2000; Phase 2: January 2003
The architecture is British neoclassicism inspired design that was transposed to rise to the requirements of modern Midwestern American suburbia. Specifically, Easton Commons echoes the work of architect, John Nash, found in his Regent’s Park terrace homes of London executed in the early part of the nineteenth century. Both the scale and density of the Regent’s Park terraces as well as the integration of planned public spaces lend well to Easton Commons’ sense of community and place.
