Arlington Properties has announced that it will manage Easterwood, a newly constructed 204-unit apartment community developed and owned by The Dobbins Group.

Easterwood is located in Gardendale, a northern suburb of Birmingham, Ala., and is now leasing.

“Residents are surrounded by nature at Easterwood, said Arlington Properties Regional Vice President Mary Bradley, yet, they have all of the conveniences of restaurants, entertainment, and shopping, along with easy access to I-65. The Dobbins group not only chose an amazing location for this new community, but they have also created an amenity-rich environment for those who live here to enjoy.”

The amenities at Easterwood include a resort-style salt-water swimming pool with a sun shelf, an outdoor entertainment area and fire pit, an outdoor kitchen with gas grills, and a 24-hour state-of-the-art fitness center. Easterwood offers a pet-friendly community, a pet spa and grooming station, and a small and large dog pet park. It has on-site walking and running trails and plenty of green space.

Cottage-like in design, the 1, 2, and 3-bedroom apartment homes feature large living areas and open floor plans created with entertaining in mind. The chef-inspired kitchens have stainless steel appliances, custom cabinets, and designer lighting. Porches and balconies in each home provide the ideal backdrop for enjoying outdoor living, with the natural surroundings, giant pines, and native flora creating the perfect setting.

“Easterwood has fiber-optic internet service available, electric car-charging stations, valet trash service, and a 24-hour automated parcel system for receiving packages. This expansive list of amenities is designed with resident service and convenience in mind, said Bradley. It’s quite the community.”
