LIVEbe, a premier apartment developer and operator, today announced the start of leasing at The Remy Phase II, a contemporary apartment community in the Harkins District of Prince George’s County.
The community, which will feature 268 apartment homes, joins the award-winning original phase of The Remy, which began leasing in 2017. Like its predecessor, The Remy Phase II will offer a uniquely cultivated array of lifestyle-enhancing amenities and meticulously crafted home features.
“Another aspect the communities will share is the trademark service levels from our LIVEbe ambassadors,” said Elaine De Lude, vice president of LIVEbe. “One of the prime differentiators of the original phase has been the exemplary service and attention to detail of our team members. That won’t change with Phase II. We look forward to building on the success of the initial phase and offering our residents the same vibrancy in the beautiful new buildings. A one-of-a-kind community is now two.”
LIVEbe’s focus on creating a unique culture has led to several SatisFacts Resident Satisfaction awards across the portfolio, as The Remy regularly generates top-notch ratings from its residents. While Phase II will feature similar amenity spaces, it will be distinctive in that it will be a pet-free building.
“We love our furry friends and understand the importance of offering a pet-friendly experience for our residents,” De Lude said. “But we also understand that not all residents want to live alongside pets, which create a different type of experience. We are striking the balance here, as pet owners can continue to enjoy the Fritz Hansel-approved pet spa and spacious dog run at the original phase, while others can enjoy a pet-free atmosphere in Phase II.”
Situated at 7700 Harkins Road, The Remy Phase II offers immediate access to the New Carrollton Station, which provides access to Baltimore, Washington, D.C., New York and Philadelphia via Amtrak and Metrorail. The MARC train, Amtrak and key commuter vessel Interstate 95/495 are all easily accessible from the community, as well.
The Remy Phase II will offer studio, one- and two bedroom homes with various layouts and an average square footage of 753. Community amenities include a resort-style saltwater pool and sundeck, rooftop lounge, two courtyards, outdoor fitness equipment, grilling stations, clubrooms and game rooms, billiards and foosball tables, movie screening room, Smiota package lockers, refrigerated lockers and resident lounge areas throughout the common areas. The community also features teleworking spaces, a conference room and will offer shuttle service to the New Carrollton Metro. Residents in each community will have access to the amenity areas in each phase.
Apartment interiors at The Remy Phase II will emit an abundance of natural light due to the size and scope of the interior windows. Home will be delivered with luxury engineered plank flooring, stone tile bathrooms, in-home washers and dryers, keyless entry and chef-inspired kitchens with custom cabinetry, quartz countertops and stainless steel appliances.
The original phase of The Remy, which features a rooftop lounge, hydrotherapeutic saltwater pool, gamers gallery and telecommuting spaces among its exclusive offerings of amenities, won a Delta Associates Excellence Award in the category of Best Lease-Up Pace for a Suburban Maryland Apartment Community in 2018.
