Local aparment firms find innovative solutions for residents

Urbane Apartments has formed a partnership with The Night Move as the latest innovative offering for renters in Metro Detroit.

The
Royal Oak-based firm owns 14 apartment buildings in Royal Oak,
Ferndale, Troy, Clawson, and Birmingham. These units are made with a
moderne look and are marketed to younger professionals who want to live
close to downtowns. This new partnership helps facilitate that.

The Night Move
is a bus service that makes stops between downtowns along the Woodward
corridor during weekends. The idea is to give people a safe ride while
they enjoy the nightlife. The bus will now make stops at eight of
Urbane Apartments’ buildings in Ferndale, Royal Oak and Berkley, which
house about 400 people.

“It came from two entrepreneurs sitting
down and figuring out how we can add value to our customer bases,” says
Eric Brown, CEO of Urbane Apartments.

The
bus will provide another perk for Urbane Apartments residents and put
its logo on a bus that drives all over southeast Oakland County. The
deal also allows The Night Move to add another bus to its fleet that it
can use for corporate and private events.

Not to be outdone, Farmington Hills-based Village Green
is offering a mobile application to facilitate more rentals. The
longtime apartment management firm has launched mobile wireless access
to apartments that enables prospective renters to choose a community,
tour, and rent an apartment from their smart phones.
