SUITLAND, Md., CAPREIT, a fully-integrated real estate operating company responsible for the ownership and management of more than $5 billion of multifamily assets, today announced it has taken over management responsibilities of Allentown, an affordable apartment community located just south of the Capital Beltway about 12 miles southeast of Washington, D.C.
The recently renovated garden-style community, which features 178 apartment homes, offers prime access to Interstate 495, Andrews Air Force Base and an abundance of shopping and dining options. A sparkling swimming pool and playground are among the family-centric attractions at Allentown, which offers spacious layouts and flexible lease options.
“We’re eager to provide quality housing in Prince George’s County that working-class professionals can afford,” said Dawn Coggins, senior vice president of property management for CAPREIT. “With Washington, D.C. a short distance to the northwest and the I-495 corridor easily accessible, the Suitland area is becoming increasingly relevant for commuters. We’re thrilled to join the Suitland community and offer a comfortable living experience for our residents.”
Situated at 5215 Morris Avenue, Allentown is located near Boeing Defense, US Air Force Civil Air Patrol and several high-performing schools, including Benjamin Foulous Creative & Performing Arts K-8 School. Within Suitland, local cuisine favorites include Infuse Restaurant and Bar, Topolino Restaurant, Pho Viet and Horace & Dickies Seafood.
