The High Companies' new apartment building caters to a clientele who is renting by choice, not by necessity.

High's real estate and construction companies unveiled their recently completed The Reserve At Greenfield on Tuesday. The 107,000-square-foot, 82-unit building includes amenities like parking garages, farmhouse-inspired decor, a fitness center, a self-service pet spa, and a bicycle repair and storage facility. It is located at 357 Pitney Road in East Lampeter Township, next to High's Greenfield Corporate Center.

High hopes these apartments will fill a demand for upscale apartments in Lancaster County's increasingly tight rental market. The Reserve's completion also comes at a time when High is looking to ramp up its rental game along the Mid-Atlantic through both new construction and acquisition of existing complexes.

Crews from High Construction broke ground on The Reserve in October 2016 and put the final touches on the building several weeks ago. High had signed leases on about 20 percent of the building's 82 apartments as of early November. The building is owned by High Real Estate Group, managed by High Associates and was constructed by High Construction.

Unit sizes range from about 700 to more than 1,500 square feet, and rents run from about $1,150 to roughly $1,900 per month, plus fees. Renters can also pay extra to use storage space or one of about two dozen one-car garages in the building's basement level. - (Photo / Jennifer Wentz) Amenities in The Reserve at Greenfield include quartz countertops, slate GE Energystar appliances, under-cabinet lighting and soft-close cabinet doors. The Reserve also offers renters a choice between white or java-colored cabinet doors in the kitchens - a small touch, The Reserve's leaders say, that makes the units feel customizable. All units can also be made accessible to people with disabilities. - (Photo / Jennifer Wentz) The Reserve at Greenfield also includes spacious bathrooms, some of which have shower stalls. - (Photo / Jennifer Wentz) Residents at The Reserve have access to a self-service dog bath. As more people choose to rent instead of own, pet-friendly amenities are increasingly important to renters, Mowbray said. About 40 percent of High's renters throughout its portfolio have feline or canine roommates. High hopes to continue attracting residents from a diverse demographic, including everyone from baby boomers who do not want the hassle of home ownership to young professionals who can afford luxury rent but do not want to be held down by a mortgage. - (Photo / Jennifer Wentz) The Reserve at Greenfield's amenities go beyond the apartments. Residents have access to indoor and outdoor lounges, a conference room and a business center with computers. Residents have key-fob access to the building, as well as the ability to let guests inside via their phones. - (Photo / Jennifer Wentz) High Real Estate owns more than 2,500 apartment units, about half of which are in Central Pennsylvania. The company plans to significantly increase that number in the next three to five years. Part of that growth will come from new construction like The Crossings at Conestoga Creek, a mixed-use development underway in Manheim Township that will include high-end apartments similar to the ones at The Reserve. Other growth will come from acquiring and revamping existing apartment complexes - something High did this summer with four Lancaster County properties. While some of High's future units will likely be in Central Pennsylvania, others could pop up throughout the Mid-Atlantic and Southeast. - (Photo / Submitted)
