JVM Realty Corp. (JVM), a leading vertically integrated multifamily real estate investment and property management firm, today announced it has completed renovations to the common areas of the Avant at the Arboretum Apartments (Avant), a 310-unit luxury apartment community in Lisle, Ill., near Downers Grove, Naperville and Oak Brook.
"Avant was already an outstanding community located in a great submarket, and these improvements make the property even better positioned to compete in today's marketplace," said Jay Madary, president and CEO of JVM. "That's because these common-area renovations truly address the demands of the modern renter, whether it be their need for pet-friendly amenities, comfortable areas for socializing or spaces to work."
Among the new features at Avant: an off-leash pet park, a pet-washing station, an automated package room with 24-hour access, an upgraded fitness center, a co-working lounge, a rent-by-the day workstation/conference room, and custom-designed one- and two-bedroom model units. The upgrades also include an updated community kitchen and bar area; a renovated clubhouse with billiards table, shuffleboard and a vintage video game table; and an upgraded cinema room.
Sitting along the prestigious I-88 Corporate Corridor, Avant is in one of the most dynamic areas in suburban Chicago. Lisle has been listed on Money Magazine’s "Top 20 Best Places to Live in America" and included on Niche.com’s list of "Best Places to Live in Illinois." The community is a quick Metra ride away from downtown Chicago, and it also offers convenient access to I-355, IL-53 and US-34 (Ogden Ave.). Furthermore, Oakbrook Shopping Center, one of the premier shopping destinations in the Chicagoland area, is an easy 15-minute drive away.
Avant offers spacious one- and two-bedroom apartment homes. The units contain gourmet kitchens with granite countertops, stainless steel appliances, side-by-side refrigerators, over-the-range microwaves, 42-inch kitchen cabinets and under-mount sinks. The apartment homes also feature large patios/balconies.
At Avant, apartment homes are wrapped around a courtyard and a structured parking garage that provides residents with parking on the same level as their homes.
JVM Realty Corp. (JVM), a leading vertically integrated multifamily real estate investment and property management firm, today announced it has completed renovations to the common areas of Circa Apartments (Circa), a 265-unit luxury apartment community in downtown Indianapolis.
"We are extremely excited about what these improvements will bring to this already outstanding community in downtown Indy," said Jay Madary, president and CEO of JVM. "When you combine these updated common-area features with our marketing and revenue management capabilities, we believe the stage is set for Circa to perform extremely well over the long term and deliver strong returns."
Among the new features at Circa: an expanded off-leash pet park, a new pet-washing station, an automated package room with 24-hour access, an upgraded fitness center, a co-working lounge, a rent-by-the day workstation/conference room and a new custom-designed one-bedroom model unit. The renovations also include a redesigned clubhouse with billiards table, new mid-century-style furniture for the resident lounge, and new modern-style furniture for the pool and sundeck.
Located in the Mass Ave Arts District, Circa sits in what is considered the premier entertainment corridor in Indianapolis. With more than 60 restaurants, bars and retailers in the surrounding area, the community's residents enjoy an urban, highly walkable neighborhood with a professional, modern atmosphere. Circa is also near the Indiana Avenue Cultural District, which is home to the thriving Indiana University-Purdue University Indianapolis campus, and Fountain Square, a quirky neighborhood filled with vintage shops and hip destinations. The community also provides easy access to Interstates 70 and 65.
Circa is located on the site of the original Mitchel & Scott Machine Company. Four contemporary buildings envelope tree-lined paths and the original two-story structure.
The community offers studio, one-, two- and three-bedroom apartment homes. The apartment homes have an open and airy design, wood flooring, in-unit full-size washers and dryers, and gourmet kitchens with sleek quartz countertops and contemporary lighting fixtures.
Community amenities include a saltwater pool with sundeck, complimentary Wi-Fi in all common areas, and an outdoor kitchen with grilling stations and a fireplace.
JVM Realty Corp. (JVM), a leading vertically integrated multifamily real estate investment and property management firm, today announced it has acquired Summit Ridge Apartments (Summit Ridge) in Lee's Summit, Mo. JVM Management will manage the property.
The community, which features 432 apartment homes, is located just 20 minutes from downtown Kansas City and its array of employers, attractions and cultural venues. The property's close proximity to two interstates (I-470 and I-70) and two federal highways (U.S. 50 and U.S. 71) gives residents easy access to the entire metro area. Summit Ridge also is just more than a mile away from St. Luke's East Hospital, the largest private employer in Lee's Summit, and is near several popular retail centers, including SummitWoods, Summit Fair and downtown Lee's Summit.
JVM plans to add value to the community by undertaking renovations such as full unit upgrades and by repurposing underutilized amenities in order to add a package delivery facility with 24/7 access to residents, expand the fitness center and improve resident gathering spaces.
"We are extremely enthusiastic about the addition of Summit Ridge Apartments to our portfolio," said Jay Madary, president and CEO of JVM. "This property is truly a perfect fit for us. It has the kinds of units and amenities that will appeal to today's Class A renter in metro Kansas City, and it's located in a thriving submarket. On top of that, we believe we'll drive significant revenue growth through the upcoming renovations as well as our experience in the area and the implementation of our marketing, revenue management and construction expertise."
Community amenities at Summit Ridge Apartments include a resort-style pool with sundeck and heated spa; a 24-hour fitness center with cardio and strength-training equipment; a resident lounge with a coffee bar, business center and conference room; and a dog park and separate pet washing station.
Summit Ridge Apartments offers one-, two- and three-bedroom apartment homes. The units feature 9-foot ceilings with crown molding, 2-inch plantation blinds, hardwood-style flooring, brushed nickel fixtures and hardware, ceiling fans and kitchen backsplashes. Select homes have fireplaces, and private balconies and patios.
JVM Realty Corp. (JVM), a leading vertically integrated multifamily real estate investment and property management firm, today announced it will host seven blood drives for the American Red Cross at its apartment communities in the Kansas City area in response to the Red Cross recently declaring it is facing a critical blood shortage. The blood drives will take place in late July and throughout August.
"One of the bedrock fundamentals of our culture is contributing to the community, and these blood drives represent a powerful way of doing that," said Jay Madary, president and CEO of JVM. "We are encouraging both our residents and our management personnel – as well as anyone else who would like to donate – to participate and give back to the Kansas City community. At JVM, we believe that each of us has a responsibility to help those in need. We will always strive to be one of the best places to work, live and invest while making a meaningful difference in the lives of those around us."
The impact these blood drives could have is clear. Consider that every two seconds, someone in the United States needs a blood transfusion, from accident and burn victims to heart surgery, organ transplant and cancer patients. One blood donation, a voluntary act that takes about 30 minutes from start to finish, may help save up to three lives. With more than 21 million blood transfusions performed every year in the U.S. alone, the need for blood donors is always high, but it is especially high during the summer months, when donations historically decline.
The dates and locations of the blood drives are below; each drive will be from 2 p.m. to 6 p.m. Those interested in donating should go to redcrossblood.org to sign up for one of the following events.

"We are extremely excited about bringing The Landing into our portfolio," said Jay Madary, president and CEO of JVM.

Furthermore, because JVM owns eight other luxury apartment communities in the Kansas City area, we have achieved real economies of scale in our property management in this market."
