Upgraded Building to Re-Open in June at The Mansards

Premier apartment rental community in NW Indiana announces opening of renovated building.

Online PR News – 08-June-2013 – Griffith, IN – The Mansards Apartments today announced they are on schedule to re-open their fully renovated building that underwent a year-long rehab and restoration after a fire in summer 2012. The property is now accepting pre-leasing applications for apartments in the building.

“The opening is set for mid-June”, confirmed Linda Jacknow, Senior Vice President of the management company for the property during a recent interview. “We’ve invested a lot of time and money to not only restore the building for occupancy, but also upgraded the units to be on par with newly constructed residences.”

The renovated building houses 23 apartments and features a mix of one and two bedroom floor plans. The Mansards upgraded the building with the latest building technology and installed a new fire sprinkler system. Other improvements include a new hot water and heating system, smart-phone compatible access entry, and the installation of energy-efficient windows and doors. Each apartment features eco-friendly water systems in the bathrooms, black appliances, built-in microwaves, and wood flooring in the kitchen, bath and entryway, with two-tone painted walls and plantation blinds in all windows.

“The apartments all have new wood cabinetry, fixtures, appliances – everything was replaced after the damage the building went through last summer” said Ms. Jacknow, “and some kitchens were re-configured to feature granite pass-through counters. All the units have granite vanity tops in the bathrooms.”

The fire began when fireworks from a nearby housing subdivision landed on the roof of the building in June of 2012. Apartments on the top floor were destroyed, with smoke and water damage affecting apartments on the lower floors.

Local authorities have yet to identify the source or definite location where the fireworks were launched. Families were relocated to other buildings in the complex, and the entire building was closed for repairs and renovations.

The Mansards Apartments is located to the north east part of the town of Griffith and has more than 1,300 apartments spread over 90 acres. It is the largest privately owned apartment rental community in Northwest Indiana, and has one of the largest amenity packages consisting of multiple clubhouses, a heated indoor pool, four outdoor pools, billiard rooms, computer lounge, banquet rooms, tennis courts, and a sports bar complete with vintage sports memorabilia.
