Signature Property Group, a longtime presence in the Greensboro apartment market, is ready to expand into other Triad markets:
Work should begin next month on a $32 million, 288-unit complex in Burlington around the same time work starts on a $30.2 million, 264-unit complex in Mebane.
Signature CEO Frank Auman said he’s excited to begin building in both cities, and the locations of each fit into a model he says has proved successful — within walking distance of amenities, and close to interstate access.
“We want to expand our presence outside the market,” Auman said. “My strategy is to first move toward the greater Raleigh area, so we’re kind of marching in that direction.”
As part of his explanation for why he sees potential in this sector of the apartment market, Auman was quoted as follows:
“Our rental demographic keeps expanding, especially in this rental class,” he said. “You’re as likely to get recently graduated college kids on their first job as you are to get retirees who are tired of mowing the grass and want to be more mobile.”
