Many may think the days of knowing your neighbors’ names are long gone, but at Lifestyle Communities, that sense of a connected neighborhood is alive and well. Since 1996, the real estate development company has delivered 10,000 rental and for-sale residential units for the young professional demographic. The company’s specialty is one- and two-bedroom units with a few three-bedroom units.
