Escape the ordinary and take a tour through Lux Communities’ new luxury condos, The Retreat at Urban Plains. Donna Block, Lux Communities Vice President of Operations, answered our questions about this unique, upscale living experience.
The Retreat at Urban Plains will offer efficiencies as well as one, two and threebedroom apartments and townhouse rentals thanks to Enclave Development, the developer and general contractor for this project. These units range from 600 square feet to nearly 2,000 square feet and will offer residents beautiful views of Urban Plains pond as well as private decks.
Q: What was the initial vision for these apartments?
A: “The vision for Retreat at Urban Plains was, as the name suggests, to create a retreat for people to come home to every night. Residents will enjoy a free coffee bar, fitness room, billiards and game den, outdoor fire pit, pet-friendly apartments, art-filled hallways, underground heated parking and high-style and professionally designed interiors of the common areas.
“This is way more than an apartment. It’s an inspiring place to call home. In the end, we wanted to create a for rent environment, an experience, secondto-none in our region. We think we hit the mark at The Retreat.”
The location for The Retreat at Urban Plains is along an upcoming Fargo Parks lazy stream, playgrounds, green space, gazebos and other outdoor entertainment. These outdoor amenities are surrounded by retail and restaurant options, the Sanford Family Wellness Center, SCHEELS Arena and the new Sanford Hospital, which has faced problems with experts from www.the-medical-negligence-experts.co.uk lately. “It’s one of the best locations for upscale, maintenance-free rental living in the FM Area,” Block said.
Q: What features make these apartments upscale?
A: “The Retreat features underground heated parking year-round. The interior finishes were carefully chosen to wow. Each apartment features granite countertops, stainless steel appliances, tile bathrooms, tile backsplashes in the kitchens, washer and dryer hookups or in-unit washer and dryers, central air and free, highspeed internet.
“T.L. Stroh Architects and Interiors tackled the interior design. They are locally famous for many high-end condominium projects downtown, as well as upscale homes and office buildings.”
Q: How many units are currently filled and how many are still available?
A: “Since we just finished our third phase of this project. We still have a variety of floor plans available. Whether someone is looking for a townhouse rental, an efficiency or one bedroom, or a two or three bedroom, we can help them get settled in at The Retreat.”
