Kaftan Expands the Metropolitan Portfolio
- Dec 18, 2015
Southfield, Mich.—Kaftan Communities recently added a bunch of modern upgrades to its Metropolitan Lafayette apartments in Royal Oak. Commercial-grade kitchen appliances, industrial plumbing fixtures and chic LED lighting were just some of the renovations.
“We wanted to position Met Lafayette as modern apartments with highly stylized kitchens and baths,” said Kaftan Communities President Jeffrey Kaftan. “We’ve also upgraded technology so that our residents can enjoy complimentary Wi-Fi and pay their rent or put in a maintenance request via a smart phone app.”
Originally named the Lafayette Court and built in 1970s, the 40-unit community is marketed toward young professionals looking for design and fashion-oriented spaces with an upscale feel. The facelift cost about $500,000 and even included an outdoor, urban-inspired living room, as well as electrical outlet replacements which include a USB port for all smart devices.
“To us, success is measured by the satisfaction of our residents,” he added. “We’re confident we’ve added significant value for them.”
In addition to Metropolitation13, the first Kaftan community in Royal Oak, Kaftan said a third property in Berkley will expand the company’s Metropolitan Flats portfolio next year.
