Writer / Renee Larr Photographer / Daren Short
The Otis at Fort Ben is giving new meaning to high-end, luxury apartments. The newly leased complex offers 16 different floor plans for one-, two- and three-bedroom options and a wide range of amenities set in an idyllic setting in Fort Benjamin Harrison.
“Our one-bedroom floor plans start with the 616-square-foot Alpine,” says Gelina Reed, regional manager for Praxm, The Otis’ property management group. “Our one-bedroom apartments range in square footage from 616 to 1,061. The Eagle is a two-story, one-bedroom option which is unique to this property.”
Each apartment home provides high-end finishes to create a luxurious feel.
“All of the apartments have modern finishes, granite countertops and stainless-steel appliances,” Reed says. “When you walk in, they’re just a showstopper.”
Complex amenities include an indoor putting green, a coffee bar, a saltwater pool, a dog washing station, bike storage, an outdoor fire pit and a repair station for cars and bikes. The Otis also offers workspace areas for those who work from home.
“With the pandemic and so many people working from home, we wanted to offer several areas where our residents could go to work from home,” Reed says. “The complex has a spacious conference room. We also have areas with tables and chairs where residents can bring their laptops and work. It’s a very peaceful space and a very relaxed environment.”
The saltwater pool offers health benefits not seen in a typical chlorine pool.
“Saltwater pools tend to be better for your skin and hair,” Reed says. “You can tell the difference when you’re in the water. We will also have an herb wall out there so our residents can take some of the herbs back to their apartments. Our aqua lounge is an area to the side of the pool where residents can sit and socialize together.”
Man’s best friend wasn’t forgotten in the building.
“The dog washing station is very spacious,” Reed says. “We’ll have treats and toys for the dogs. Also, we’ll have a grooming table with a blower. There will also be a dog park where dogs can play and get exercise.”
The apartments offer luxury without the high price tag.
“When you compare prices, our rates are comparable with a higher quality product,” Reed says.
Fort Ben offers nature trails in a peaceful but growing community setting.
“The Otis at Fort Ben is coming to embrace the already longstanding community,” says Rebecca Collins, Praxm’s director of communications and property management. “The area has tremendous potential for growth. There plenty of green spaces, trails and restaurants in the area.”
The Otis at Fort Ben offers both in-person and virtual tours of the property and the apartments.
“We recommend potential residents visit our website to see the beautiful photos, floor plans and a virtual tour,” Reed says. “They can also reach out to set up an appointment to come to visit the property.
