FORE Launches The First And Only LEED Gold Designed Apartment Community In Owings Mills Area
OWINGS MILLS, Md., Sept. 20, 2012 /PRNewswire/ — Fore Property Company (FORE) is pleased to announce its latest creative development, Groveton Green Apartments located in Owings Mills, Maryland. This $35 million, 226-unit community combines contemporary luxury living in an eco-friendly setting.
“At Groveton Green, we worked hard to make it easy for you to love where you live,” said Jim Sullivan, Vice President of Fore Property Company. “Specifically, we wanted Groveton Green to stand out for renters and Baltimore County from local existing apartment projects by providing the perfect combination of a high-end lifestyle with environmental sensibility. Residents get the benefit of reduced energy and water costs, lower carbon and pollution footprint, and healthier living from cleaner air without having to lift a finger.”
Love where you Live
The residents will enjoy an 8,600 square foot clubhouse accessible 24 hours a day seven days a week. The three story clubhouse features a full size fitness club with world-class strength and cardio training equipment, yoga studio, billiards, shuffleboard, a poker room, business center, and conference room, multiple social and quiet lounges complete with numerous high definition televisions, and a Dog Wash.
Those that enjoy the sun can relax by our resort style pool with a two story cascading waterfall. Additional outdoor amenities include the Zen Garden, multiple fire pits, BBQ areas, covered bike parking, and the “Lucky Dog Park for your best friend.”
Groveton Green has a beautiful private setting that provides quiet surroundings and scenic views. More than 50 acres on three sides of the gated community are dedicated to forest conservation, forest buffer, recreational greenway, and other natural preserve.
The spacious apartment interiors are bustling with contemporary luxury via hardwood style or stained concrete floors, upgraded stone kitchen countertops, stainless steel appliances, designer espresso cabinetry, and dramatic open living spaces with 9 foot, 10 foot, and vaulted ceilings. For resident convenience there are two elevators in each building.
Groveton Green is ideally located in the heart of Owings Mills, within 3/5ths mile of the rapid transit Metro Station and in close proximity to grocery stores, shopping, dining, and entertainment options as well as many employment centers, including T. Rowe Price, CareFirst BlueCross BlueShield, and Owings Mills’ 6 million square feet of commercial offices. Its location allows quick and easy access to I-795 and the Baltimore Beltway, and is approximately a 20 minute commute downtown via The Metro.
Sullivan stated that “FORE is particularly excited about becoming a part of the new developments occurring in Owings Mills and Baltimore County. We believe that our upscale rental community satisfies an unmet need in this market, helps to enhance the overall neighborhood, and encourages additional eco-friendly building. We thank the officials and staff of the Baltimore County Government for their review and approval of Groveton Green.”
Rent the Green Life
Groveton Green is the first and only LEED Gold Designed apartment development in the Owings Mills area and boasts several green-based features to reduce the impact on the environment as measured by the U.S. Green Building Council’s LEED for Homes Program.
What are the benefits? For our residents, energy savings will be achieved through energy efficient windows, ENERGY STAR® appliances and lights, high efficiency HVAC units, and enhanced insulation. Healthy living is also important, which is why Groveton Green includes MERV 8 air filters providing cleaner fresh air, eco-friendly building products (e.g., Green Label Plus Carpets), and low VOC paints. As a result, residents will use roughly 900,000 gallons less water each year and save $1.6 million in energy costs over the next twenty years. Also available is a 100% non-smoking building option.
For Baltimore County and our world, Groveton Green will reduce our carbon footprint by roughly 280 tons per year. That is the equivalent of taking roughly 70 cars (at 30 MPG) off the road each year.
