Luxury apartment-home concept comes to Oregon
The concept of luxury apartment-homes has come to Oregon as Redwood Management has started leasing Bay Pointe Luxury Apartments located at 4744 Navarre, adjacent to Little Sisters of the Poor and across from Pearson Park.

The development on 13.75 acres will eventually house 110 units.

The single story apartment-homes are easily accessible with no stairs to negotiate. The ranch apartment home features 1,150 to 1,200 square-feet of living space, two bedrooms, two baths and a one or two-car attached garage. Available amenities include electric fireplace, patio, central air, high-speed internet access and pre-wired cable in each room.

Services available are snow removal, lawn care and on-site management.

Pets are welcome.

According to Steve Kimmelman, Redwood’s president, the company strives to build quiet, peaceful single-floor living for those with special needs, those who no longer wish to care for a home or those who prefer apartment living, but don’t want people living above or below them.

Kimmelman said the complex would create synergy with the Little Sisters of the Poor Sacred Heart nursing home and assisted living facility providing an easy transition from independent living or keeping spouses with different living needs close together.

Construction on the first unit of 18 apartment-homes is underway and a model should be open by the end of March, weather permitting. A model home to view is available at Arbors of Perrysburg, one 10 similar developments in Ohio managed by Redwood.

Rents range from $825 to $895 per month.

The company is based in Beechwood, Ohio a Cleveland suburb. Call 419-304-5832 or visit
