The 309-unit apartment complex will feature both outdoor community living and indoor relaxation space, which are popular amenity trends in 2019 according to Residents will enjoy the large upscale clubhouse, a resort-style saltwater pool with sun deck, and courtyards with gas grills, bar and fire pit.

Lumeo Apartments will also cater to the grooming needs of residents’ furry friends with a full-service pet spa. Each unit is equipped with stainless steel appliances, washer/dryer, walk-in closets and other high-end features.
