The Worthington Highlands area was developed in the late 80's. Most of the homes in the Worthington Highlands development were built by MI Homes, Ryland Homes or Virginia Homes I believe. The earliest I can find is built in 1986 according to the auditor. Latest homes? I am guessing about 1992 or 1993 I sold one of the last few new homes built by a small builder... in the early 1990's.
To put this in perspective... the first concert at Polaris Ampitheater was in 1994? Worthington Highlands was a neighborhood where you could hear the concerts I believe.... Worthington Highlands was the end of civilization... (kind of) yes there were some Lewis Center neighborhoods or even neighborhoolds with a Galena mailing address north of Worthington Highlands "out in the country." There was not a Polaris interchange or a Polaris Parkway "just up the road a piece." It was country... Wondering when the big Bank One bulding went in just north of Worthington Highlands? Early 90's I believe.
According to Google the neighborhood has a community website but I kept getting an error code. Or I'd give you the link...
Worthington Highlands is very convenient to the Polaris area for shopping, restaurants, etc. Other shopping nearby is Worthington Centre (corner of Worthington Galena and Park Rd.) Or Worthington, Old Worthington or Worthington Square. Or Crosswoods for more restaurants.
