Young Professionals Attracted to The Langston
It’s been three months since The Langston opened its doors for business. The live-work-play community, recently finishing its first phase of development, has already seen lots of activity. And, it’s proving to be popular for young professionals in the Cleveland area.
“We have a really nice mix of renters,” said Adam Martin, site manager for The Langston. “And we’re filling up fast.”
Renters, who work in a variety of settings including the Cleveland Clinic, GE, and downtown’s casinos, are feeling The Langston’s convenient lifestyle perks. Plus, The Langston’s central location is ideal, with connections to Cleveland’s HealthLine, easy access to the I-90 expressway, and Cleveland nightlife just five minutes away.
"Living in the downtown Cleveland area is great, and The Langston’s convenient location makes for a very short morning commute for me,” said resident David Klink. “Equally as important, the leasing staff has always been helpful. I think both professionals and students alike will find The Langston to be a great addition to the downtown apartment complexes."
Since move-in day at the end of August, The Langston has remained at a high occupancy level. The first building was 100 percent occupied at its opening, and the other two buildings easily drew tenants within a month of their Sept. 15 and Oct. 1 opening dates. Currently, The Langston apartments are 90 percent occupied.
“All that we have available right now is our two bedroom and two bathroom townhome model,” Martin said. “And these apartments are tailor-made for the young professional. Along with a washer and dryer and stainless steel appliances in every Langston unit, the second floor bedroom you get in the townhome is extremely useful for guests or even an office.”
When complete in early June 2013, The Langston will include a total of 318 apartments for rent, a fitness center, media room, cyber café and plenty of outdoor recreation space. The community will also have 10,000 square feet of retail and restaurant space and a schedule of resident events to keep The Langston a popular place to stay and live.
