Cherry Hill, N.J.—The Klein Company recently opened the Dwell Luxury Apartments, 233 contemporary apartments in Cherry Hill, N.J., outfitted with top-of-the-line finishes and eco-friendly features.

"Dwell’s exceptional design, high-end amenities and eco-friendly features make for an unparalleled rental lifestyle," Clay Chandler, The Klein Company’s vice president of development, tells MHN. "We’re intent on shrinking our environmental footprint, and improving our residents’ rental lifestyle in the process."

The Dwell Luxury Apartments offer one- and two-bedroom units ranging from 794 to 1,272 square feet with rental rates starting at $1,385 per month.

"At The Klein Company, we deliver and manage luxury residential properties that extend beyond a ‘place to live’ and become ‘home.’" Chandler says. "Our communities are designed for the way our residents live, and we’ve seen and heard that a sustainable lifestyle is increasingly important to our renters. A green apartment offering is a win-win."

Environmentally friendly features include underground rain vaults, native plant landscaping, electric car chargers and more. Upon completion of the property in July 2013, Dwell is expected to be certified LEED silver.

"At Dwell, our residences feature water-conserving fixtures, and we put in storm water basins and underground vaults to recharge and slowly return storm water to the water table," Chandler says. "We maximize energy efficiency with Energy Star appliances and lighting, Low-E Argon windows, optimized heating and cooling units and programmable thermostats, while ventilation systems reduce allergens and maintain proper humidity levels. Plus, we’ve gone above and beyond and installed Level 2 electric car charging systems."

The Dwell complex features a clubhouse, fitness center, outdoor swimming pool and sculpture garden, plus a picnic grove and a playground area for children.

The complex is located in the heart of Cherry Hill, close to South Jersey’s top stores, restaurants and office facilities, just a few minutes from downtown Philadelphia, and a short commute to the Jersey shore. It’s also just steps from NJ Transit, and sits on a major bus route.

According to Chandler, in addition to creating an eco-friendly lifestyle, Dwell will educate all residents about the sustainability features of the community, from delivering a manual to residents on move-in, to a video and in-person tutorial detailing green amenities
