Insight Property Group has added another apartment community to the Washington, D.C., metro area. It’s called The Shelby and it features 240 luxury residences.
The mid-rise community is located at 6200 North Kings Highway, in Alexandria. Insight developed it in response to the growing need for transit-oriented apartments that are close to major employers. Units in The Shelby range from junior one-bedrooms to two-bedrooms with a den. According to the property’s website, rents start from $1,496 per month for the smallest apartments and from $2,261 per month for the largest.
Each residence offers an important amenity package, from gourmet kitchens to washers and dryers, wood plank flooring or spacious closets. And The Shelby has many other features, including a spacious lobby, a gaming room, a swimming pool, an outdoor movie theater, private parking and a gym.
“Meaningful amenities and showcasing local talent in the community space was very important for us to include in the design of The Shelby,” Rebecca Snyder, partner at Insight Property Group, said in a statement for the press. “We commissioned more than 100 works of art and installations from 40 local artists and craftsmen, including D.C.-based SwatchRoom, Gutierrez Studios out of Baltimore, Md. and Carbon Industrial Design located minutes from The Shelby in Alexandria, Va. We believe in supporting and celebrating local talent. The D.C. area has a thriving creative scene that we are proud to showcase at The Shelby.”
Bozzuto Management, a subsidiary of The Bozzuto Group, is managing the new apartment community. The company said in a news release that The Shelby is now open for leasing.
