Pre-leasing Begins at New 207-Unit Premier Apartment Homes, First Residents Move in October 2015
CHICAGO (AUGUST 27, 2015)–Laramar Management Services, LLC, a subsidiary of Chicago-based real estate investment and management company The Laramar Group, announced today that pre-leasing launches this month at The Buckler Apartments, a premier 207-unit apartment community centrally located in one of Milwaukee's most vibrant neighborhoods. Laramar has served as an integral consultant to the owners and developers, Phoenix Development Partners and CA Ventures, LLC, throughout development and will continue to oversee the residential community's lifestyle through property and leasing management.
The highly-anticipated property is set to open its doors to residents this October and will offer a range of floorplans fit for diverse lifestyle needs. The Buckler is situated in a dynamic neighborhood in downtown Milwaukee, adjacent to Zeidler Union Square, host to a weekly farmer's market and ongoing event programming. The property is a short distance from the lakefront recreational paths, Marquette University and shopping and dining hotspots at The Shops of Grand Avenue, the Third Ward and Cathedral Square, which also hosts weekly summer events and annual festivals.
“The conversion of the 11-story building from offices to a just over 200-residence high-end apartment community speaks to the growing resurgence of downtown Milwaukee as one of the region's most in-demand residential epicenters” said Steve Boyack, Laramar Senior Vice President of Asset Management. “With a combination of prime location—a short walk to major employers, public transportation and entertainment centers—and Laramar's best-in-class property management and customer service, The Buckler offers residents in this market an unrivalled lifestyle.”
The Buckler Apartments offers studios, one-, and two-bedroom residences. Each apartment features contemporary interior finishes including quartz countertops, upscale cabinetry, designer fixtures, high ceilings, expansive windows and private terrace spaces. The on-property parking garage and adjacent garage accommodate a total of 119 vehicles.
Residents of The Buckler Apartments will enjoy extensive indoor and outdoor community amenities, including 24/7 concierge service, an outdoor lounge with grilling stations, indoor basketball court with private lounge, state-of-the-art fitness center and dog spa. In addition, the property boasts smart community features, including ButterflyMX, a smartphone video intercom technology and a WiFi café.
