FAQ

Are the apartments furnished?

Each apartment consists of a large walk-in closet(s), bathroom(s), living/dining room(s), bedroom(s), full-service kitchen, pantry, coat or linen closet, and private balcony or patio. New residents to this community can pick out the paint color(s), carpet color(s) and style(s) and any additional amenities, but we encourage residents and family members to bring all furniture and furnishings in order to make the apartment feel as much like home as possible. Our maintenance and housekeeping staffs are available to assist with all move-in requests.
