Columbia MD Apartments
Mill Creek continues to grow its Maryland portfolio with the
acquisition of Kings Crossing, a welcoming apartment community
featuring 168 apartment homes in Columbia. The community, built in
1984, was rebranded by Mill Creek as Alister Columbia, and features
seven two- and three-story wood-framed buildings and a leasing
office/clubhouse. Mill Creek plans to renovate common areas,
amenities, and apartment interiors of the community.
Alister Columbia offers spacious 1-, 2- and 3-bedroom homes ranging
in square footage from 735 to 1,100. Community amenities include a
swimming pool, clubhouse with resident lounge, fitness center,
playground, and car care center. Renovated apartment interiors will
feature stainless steel appliances, quartz countertops,
backsplashes, and updated cabinetry and fixtures. Select homes will
feature vinyl wood flooring, and all homes offer washer and dryers,
walk-in closets, and private patios or balconies.
Located at 8909 Early April Way, the community benefits from a
prime location in a city that Money Magazine labeled the
“Number One Best Place to Live in America” in 2016. The
designation was based on Columbia’s high-wage jobs, strong
economies, affordable homes, excellent schools, and location
between Washington, D.C., and Baltimore, MD.
Located equidistant between Route 29 and I-95, Alister Columbia is
within walking distance of the King’s Contrivance Village
Center, which includes a Harris Teeter grocery store, Starbucks,
and several shops and restaurants. Alister Columbia sits in close
proximity to Wegman’s and Trader Joe’s in a
neighborhood where the average home price is greater than $420,000.
Residents enjoy access to employment centers throughout Howard
County and the broader Washington, D.C. metro. Key employment
drivers include Fort Meade, Howard County General Hospital, and the
John Hopkins Applied Physics Laboratory.
Less than five miles north of the community, The Mall at Columbia
is home to a bevy of local and national retailers, restaurants and
entertainment options, including Whole Foods, Nordstrom,
Williams-Sonoma, Sephora, Bose, Apple, Lord & Taylor, Arhaus
Furniture, Michael Kors, Lululemon Athletics, and AMC
Baltimore-Washington International Thurgood Marshall Airport is a
15-minute drive from the community. Interstate 95, U.S. Route 29,
and Maryland Routes 100 and 32 are easily accessible as
Alister Columbia is the fourth community Mill Creek has developed
or acquired in Maryland. Mill Creek’s current stabilized and
lease-up communities in the state include Modera Westside and
Alister Town Center Columbia.
