Saturday, July 14th 11 am to 4 pm

The Urban Living Tour is a one-day, multi-development tour of downtown apartments and a truly inclusive and large-scale experiential branding effort to effectively promote the downtown-urban living lifestyle and all the lifestyle improvements you can expect.

From 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. on Saturday, July 14, Ollie the Trolley will be running routes between each of our participating properties, delivering you right to the door of each for a warm welcome and tour!

Stops include: 
Stop by each tour spot to increase your chances of winning prizes from downtown merchants, restaurants and other service providers. Get a taste of all that downtown has to offer in one tour experience!

The ongoing explosion in downtown apartments has been the future of building downtown living vibrancy.
