Columbia MD Apartments

Mill Creek continues to grow its Maryland portfolio with 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. You can't go wrong with our renovated common areas, amenities, and apartment interiors.

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 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 a fantastic variety of shops and restaurants. Alister Columbia sits in close proximity to Wegman’s and Trader Joe’s in a fantastic neighborhood. 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 Theatres. 
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 well!
