If you’re looking for that perfect apartment close to some of the best that Birmingham, Alabama, has on offer, consider calling Historic Avondale’s Axel Row home!

In walking distance of lively parks, bars, and eateries, the sleek new apartments offer contemporary urban living at its most modern. No attention was spared when it came to design detail, from the 42-inch custom cabinetry and stainless-steel appliances in the chef-inspired open kitchens with their large islands, to spacious walk-in closets and strategically located built-in USB charging ports in every unit. There is state-of-the-art fiber optic Internet on site, for some of the fastest speeds in the city, and all of the appliances are energy-efficient.

Balcony views, lofty ceilings, and wood plank flooring combined with brushed nickel ceiling fans give all the apartments a light, clean, airy feel, perfect for when you want to have the new friends you made at the neighborhood park or Avondale Brewing Co. over some fun. And, equally perfect for when you need a little down time on the couch by yourself.

The apartment community, managed by Birmingham-based Arlington Properties with its professional signature combination of finesse and discretion, features different outdoor areas for grilling and entertainment—complete with firepit and Bocce ball court! There’s valet trash service, a 24-hour fully automated parcel locker system, and gated parking with electric car charging stations.

According to various apartment industry surveys, 70 to 90 percent of renters have a pet, so Arlington Properties has ensured that Axel Row—like the other communities it manages throughout its 12-state footprint in the Southeast and Midwest—is a pet-friendly property, complete with yet another outdoor area, this one for dogs.

Cookies and creamery. Soul food and soulful music. Barbecue and books. Living at Axel Row puts you in the middle of a little bit of everything, from the Avondale branch of Birmingham Public Library to Saw’s Soul Kitchen, Post Office Pies, and Saturn, the live event venue.

And, the apartment community—which is connected to Birmingham via the Jones Valley Urban Trail—is just minutes away from St. Vincent’s Hospital, area businesses, and UAB, which makes it the perfection location for students and young professionals alike.
