Construction Updates

Columbia Hills “topped out,” or reached its highest point of construction, in December 2017. Construction completion and tenant occupancy is expected for fall 2018.

Please note: the development is still under construction and interested renters may NOT enter the building or construction site.

How to Submit a Wait-list Application

We are not accepting applications until spring 2018.

Information about how to submit a wait-list application will be listed here no fewer than 30 days in advance of the first day that applications will be accepted. APAH recommends that those who are interested in renting at Columbia Hills sign up here to receive an email notification or check this page at least once a month to ensure information is not missed. Signing up does NOT add you to any list other than an email list.

Keep in mind, applications for residency at APAH properties are competitive, with many more applications received than apartments available.
