JVM Realty Corp. (JVM) has announced the completion of renovations to the common areas of the Avant at the Arboretum Apartments (Avant), a 310-unit luxury apartment community in Lisle, Ill., near Downers Grove, Naperville and Oak Brook.
"Avant was already an outstanding community located in a great submarket, and these improvements make the property even better positioned to compete in today's marketplace," said Jay Madary, president and CEO of JVM. "That's because these common-area renovations truly address the demands of the modern renter, whether it be their need for pet-friendly amenities, comfortable areas for socializing or spaces to work."
Among the new features at Avant: an off-leash pet park, a pet-washing station, an automated package room with 24-hour access, an upgraded fitness center, a co-working lounge, a rent-by-the day workstation/conference room, and custom-designed one- and two-bedroom model units. The upgrades also include an updated community kitchen and bar area; a renovated clubhouse with billiards table, shuffleboard and a vintage video game table; and an upgraded cinema room.
Sitting along the prestigious I-88 Corporate Corridor, Avant is in one of the most dynamic areas in suburban Chicago. Lisle has been listed on Money Magazine’s "Top 20 Best Places to Live in America" and included on Niche.com’s list of "Best Places to Live in Illinois." The community is a quick Metra ride away from downtown Chicago, and it also offers convenient access to I-355, IL-53 and US-34 (Ogden Ave.). Furthermore, Oakbrook Shopping Center, one of the premier shopping destinations in the Chicagoland area, is an easy 15-minute drive away.
Avant offers spacious one- and two-bedroom apartment homes. The units contain gourmet kitchens with granite countertops, stainless steel appliances, side-by-side refrigerators, over-the-range microwaves, 42-inch kitchen cabinets and under-mount sinks. The apartment homes also feature large patios/balconies.
At Avant, apartment homes are wrapped around a courtyard and a structured parking garage that provides residents with parking on the same level as their homes.
