Home Properties Announces Grand Opening of The Courts at Huntington Station
WASHINGTON, July 16 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ — Home Properties, Inc. (NYSE: HME) today announced the opening of the first phase of its newest apartment community, The Courts at Huntington Station, located in Alexandria, Virginia. Featuring 202 studio, one-, two- and three-bedroom apartments for rent, The Courts occupies a prime location just steps from the Huntington Metro Station with easy access to the Capital Beltway and entire D.C. Metro area.
“What makes The Courts unique is that residents have the opportunity to reduce their individual carbon footprint by using several mass transit options located within close proximity of our community,” said Donald Hague, Senior Vice President of Development for Home Properties. “You literally can walk out your front door and onto the Metro platform.”
Home Properties built The Courts at Huntington Station with a commitment to preserving the integrity of surrounding land and existing neighborhoods. In recognition of those efforts, Fairfax County presented Home Properties with a Land Conservation Award in April 2010 for promoting best practices in both erosion prevention and sedimentation control throughout the construction process.
Home Properties offers a wide array of environmentally conscious, green lifestyle amenities at The Courts, including Energy Star appliances, underground parking, recycling opportunities, and noise-reducing windows. Residents may also take advantage of healthy lifestyle amenities like the outdoor swimming pool, state-of-the-art fitness center and yoga/Pilates/cycling studio.
“We strive to promote green living as it is relevant not only to the environment but the overall well-being of our residents. Home Properties is proud to add The Courts to our other 22 apartment communities in the D.C. region,” commented Hague.
Phase two of The Courts is currently under construction and is slated to open in May 2011, adding another 219 apartments to the community. To date, 82 apartments have been leased at The Courts. For leasing and other information, please visit courtsathuntington.com.
