Arlington Properties has added The Metropolitan, a 330-unit apartment community in Lexington, Kentucky, to its property management portfolio.

Located in Southeast Lexington’s 40157 ZIP Code at 3751 Appian Way, just moments away from downtown, the community features both a nature trail on Hickman Creek and a bark park with its own agility course, in keeping with Arlington’s resident-focused and pet-friendly management style.

“We are excited about the opportunity to operate another asset in the Lexington market and appreciative of our partnership with Wicker Park,” said Arlington Property Management President Tammy Wyble. “We understand that discerning residents place a premium on being in easy proximity to major employers and on enjoying the vitality of a progressive urban environment and the resources it offers.

Arlington Properties Regional Vice President Tami Stertmeyer said the company has some exciting capital projects planned to further beautify The Metropolitan Lexington.

“Our local team is eager to begin providing the exceptional customer service that residents are accustomed to in an Arlington community,” she said. “Part of that will be sharing our vision for The Metropolitan’s future with them as we finalize our project details.

“And, we know that people consider their homes as their comfort and their refuge, so not only will we be focusing on creature comforts, we also will be working to provide our communities with the amenities people have come to expect with high-end apartment living.”

With an indoor/outdoor heated saltwater pool that offers the option of swimming in year-round comfort to a well-lit and wind-protected tennis court, The Metropolitan Lexington takes providing its community with fitness options seriously, Stertmeyer said. Residents also have access to a fitness center with spin bikes and free weights on a 24/7 basis.

“We know how important it is to our residents that they feel a sense of community where they live,” she said. “We have a newly renovated clubhouse and plan to offer social activities, of course keeping in mind pandemic protocols.”

Stertmeyer said the Metropolitan, a gated community, offers on-call emergency maintenance services, online customer service with rent pay options, covered parking, an onsite laundry, and package service.
