Just a few months ago, Fox Run opened the doors to its newest residence building, Edgewater. Now construction is already under way on yet another building, which is scheduled to open in fall 2016.

“It was the right time to start construction due to market demand,” says Sales Manager Kristen Yaquinto. “When the construction of Edgewater was announced, we had such a great response and interest not only from our priority list members but from the general public as well.”

The new building will be named Twin Pines, in reference to an old Detroit creamery. Yaquinto says that when people hear the name Twin Pines, it evokes great memories and feelings of a strong community. 

Tight-knit community

“Twin Pines reminds people of simpler times when you knew every family on your street and neighbors stopped by for a friendly chat,” Yaquinto says. Interestingly, that is precisely the feeling many people have when they move to Fox Run, which is a lot like a small town where neighbors know and support one another.

In November, the framing of the new building was almost complete and the roof trusses were going on. The same team that built Edgewater—Brinkman Construction based in St. Louis, Mo., and Lantz-Boggio Architects based in Englewood, Colo.—is also working on Twin Pines.  

When it opens, Twin Pines will have 116 brand new apartment homes. Yaquinto says they will be a mix of bright and airy one- and two-bedroom homes, including two never-before-seen floor plans. 

“The maintenance-free designs feature granite countertops, stainless steel appliances, and exquisite woodland views,” Yaquinto says.
