What is Home?

For those fortunate enough, Home is about having a union. By definition, union means to join a group or club.

We’re excited to have been a part of the effort to design a home for the residents of Union Apartments. With a total of 53 residential apartments, including 27 three-bedroom, 12 two-bedroom, and 14 one-bedroom units, Union is diverse enough to accommodate families, couples, and singles. There is the hope these residents will join in union in the shared amenities: business center, clubhouse, lounge, fitness center, playground, game room, and media center/movie theatre.
