One-3-One Apartments Multifamily Case Study

One-3-One Apartments

Smartland’s One-3-One Apartment’s current repositioning and transformation is an excellent example of how at Smartland, we see what others do not, adding value to tenants and communities creating higher returns to our investor partners.

One-3-One Apartments is a 144-unit garden-style apartment community located in Garfield Heights, Ohio. We acquired the building in March of 2020 in a depressed, outdated, mismanaged state with a 91.6% occupancy.

It has now been about 1 year and 11 months since we closed on the One-3-One Apartments investment and we have made major transformational progress, adding value, and reducing expenses throughout the entire property.
