Hazelton Apartments Connects Luxury Living to Royal Oak

When Trowbridge Homes wanted to build a multi-story building project in Royal Oak, MI, a call was made to Ronnisch Construction to help manage the build. Trowbridge partnered with local Royal Oak architect, Krieger Klatt to create the extravagant design, and together, all three companies got to work.
This luxury 5-story, 69-unit complex with zero lot lines will feature a two-level below grade parking area and top of the line apartment amenities. According to Armen Derderian, project manager for Ronnisch Construction Group, it really shows the scope and quality of work that they are capable of.
“This project really makes sense for the community it is located in,” said Derderian. “In a city where parking is premium, building a 69-unit apartment building with underground parking is a must. The common areas will feature multiple use for residents and the swimming pool will be a welcome recreation for those living here.”
In addition, the proximity to downtown will put everything within walking distance for residents to enjoy. There is no sparing of cost on the finishes for the building and each unit will be 1400 sq feet with ten 5th floor ‘penthouse’ apartments coming in at 1700 sq feet.
The project will feature many unique amenities for the guests living at Hazelton Apartments. There will be a 6th floor exterior bar and patio area with a fire pit under a pergola. In addition, a business center, and fitness and yoga rooms will be featured on the 3rd floor. Also, a game area, lounge and kitchen will be on the 2nd floor.
“Our partners really put a lot of thought into the design to ensure that residents have access to many of the necessities and amenities that they need for both work and play,” said Bernie Ronnisch, president of Ronnisch Construction Group. “We love getting our hands on elaborate projects like this with a lot of details. Our team thrives with the leadership and expertise to be able to execute Trowbridge and Krieger Klatt’s vision.”
The location of the project is really one of the biggest selling points for residents. With such an advantageous and desirable location, The Hazelton provides opportunities for tenants to live, work and play in one of the most vibrant locations in Metropolitan Detroit.
“Klatt’s design spares no cost, providing impressive finishes and resort quality amenities throughout. Each apartment home will exceed your expectations,” admits Derderian. “Located in the heart of downtown Royal Oak, this project not only offers an amazing home, but a vibrant new lifestyle that puts you in the middle of the action. I will not be surprised in the least if all of these are taken before the paint even dries on the project.”
