The Grove, an 80-unit rental apartment community in Davis, is more than halfway through an eight-month renovation designed to reposition the property and enhance its appeal to student renters.
The property, which was built in 1981 and formerly known as Brush Creek Apartments, was acquired in November by HighBridge Properties on behalf of itself and a private investor, a news release said.
The Grove, at 1333 Arlington Blvd., consists of 10 one- and two-story apartment buildings with a total of 36 one-bedroom units, 36 two-bedroom units and eight three-bedroom units.
The renovation began in December and is expected to be completed in August, in time to accommodate tenant move-ins prior to the start of UC Davis’ fall quarter Sept. 24. San Francisco-based HighBridge has directed the day-to-day activities, working with its onsite property manager, FPI Management, which oversees 60,000 apartment units in more than 10 states.
Working while the property remained largely occupied, HighBridge and FPI have focused on updating the interiors of all 80 apartments. Improvements to the property’s exterior and common areas are being made as well, including the installation of secure bike racks just outside the entrance of each apartment unit. Other changes include newly landscaped grounds, a resurfaced/restriped parking lot, new pool-side furniture for the outdoor swimming pool, a renovated community laundry room,and a new outdoor barbecue area with a gas grill.
