Groveton Green Apartments held a grand opening ceremony on November 15 in Owings Mills. Baltimore County Executive Kevin Kamenetz, Councilwoman Vicki Almond, Councilman Ken Oliver and Reisterstown-Owings Mills-Glyndon Chamber of Commerce Executive Director Brian Ditto were among those present at the ribbon cutting ceremony.
The $35 million project was developed by the Fore Property Company, a full service, national apartment developer, manager and owner with over 30 years of experience in the multifamily industry. Located at 9401 Groveton Circle, the community includes 226 luxury one-, two- and three-bedroom homes on 16 acres. Apartments feature hardwood style or stained concrete floors, walk-in closets, stainless steel appliances, tile bathroom floors, upgraded stone kitchen countertops, vaulted ceilings and more.
Residents will enjoy an 8,600-square-foot, three-story clubhouse accessible 24/7. It features a state-of-the-art fitness club, yoga studio, billiards, shuffleboard, a poker room, business center, conference room, multiple lounges and a dog wash. Additional outdoor amenities include a resort style pool, the Zen Garden, multiple fire pits, barbecue areas, covered bike parking, and the “Lucky Dog Park for your best friend.” Groveton Green is also ideally located in the heart of Owings Mills. It is close to grocery stores, shopping, dining and entertainment options as well as many employment centers.
Fore Property built the luxury apartment community to LEED Gold standards and is now awaiting certification. Residents will save energy with the help of energy efficient windows, appliances and lights, high efficiency HVAC units and enhanced insulation. Groveton Green is the first and only LEED Gold Designed apartment development in the Owings Mills area.
Fore Property Vice President Jim Sullivan said in September that the company “wanted Groveton Green to stand out for renters and Baltimore County from local existing apartment projects by providing the perfect combination of a high-end lifestyle with environmental sensibility. Residents get the benefit of reduced energy and water costs, a lower carbon and pollution footprint, and healthier living from cleaner air without having to lift a finger.”
