WASHINGTON, DC - Hines and the TFI US Real Estate Fund, sponsors of CityCenterDC, announced that they have chosen prominent real estate services firm Bozzuto Management Company to market and manage the apartment community at the landmark, mixed-use CityCenterDC development in Downtown Washington, D.C.
The Apartments at CityCenter, comprised of 458 residences, respond to the District's growing demand for well-appointed apartment homes in convenient locations, featuring meaningful amenities that will enhance the daily living experience. With restaurants, shops, major employers and Metro rail stops within a short walk, The Apartments at CityCenter will set a new standard for urban living in D.C. The Apartments at CityCenter will be introduced to the market later this summer and will be available for occupancy in the fall 2013.
The apartments will offer dramatic floor-to-ceiling windows, spacious layouts and open kitchens, along with amenities that include a rooftop swimming pool, lounge, gardens and terraces, a clubroom with billiards and televisions for entertaining, a dog-walk area, and a two-story, 5,500-square-foot fitness facility with a yoga room.
